The second daughter of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings, Princess Amina Agyemang Rawlings could not hold back her tears as she read the tribute on behalf of her mother.

In a bid to console her, Member of Parliament for the Klorley Klottey constituency, Dr. Zanetor Agyemang Rawlings joined her on the dais to enable her complete the reading of the tribute.
She also mentioned how Rawlings was an ever supportive husband with regards to raising them in the tribute she read on behalf of her mother.
