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.
The words in the tribute she read, forced tears to roll down her face.
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 in the tribute how Rawlings was a supportive husband with regards to raising them.
