Kimathi Rawlings, the only son of former President Jerry John Rawlings, has been spotted in public for the first time since his father passed away.
Kimathi was spotted in the company of his elder sister, Zanetor, when they attended a vigil held in honour of their father by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Rawlings, Ghana's longest-serving head of state ever and the founder of the NDC, passed away on Thursday, November 12, 2020.
He passed on at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital where he had been receiving treatment after a short illness.
To honour their founder, the NDC has planned a number of activities key among which is the vigil which is underway at the old Obra Spot area at Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.
As previously reported by YEN.com.gh, videos from the vigil popped up showing loads of NDC supporters and other Ghanaians who admired Rawlings throng the venue.
With many of the mourners clad in red and black outfits and NDC apparel, it has been an atmosphere of sombreness.
Just like the other mourners, Kimathi and his sister were clad in black and looked very quiet.
The two were sitting in the front with the likes of Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu and NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, among others.
Meanwhile, the family of Jerry John Rawlings has released new details and directives on his funeral. The new details include the family's decision not to hold a one-week observance.
In a statement on Saturday, November 14, 2020, the family also directed visitors to call for prior appointments before coming over
The statement also debunked reports that Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings was sick.
