It is pertinent to ask, therefore, whether Corporal Mahama is a close relative of late Major Mahama or perhaps even his sister or cousin.

The answer to the question could explain why she was inconsolably sad at the burial of the fallen soldier.

Corporal Mahama's relentless crying in the trending photos suggests that she feels a sense of personal loss.

YEN.com.gh cannot immediately confirm, however, is she is Major Mahama's relative.

It is, in fact, entirely possible that she is not related to him in any way.

Whatever the case may be, the pictures of Corporal Mahama shedding tears exemplified the feeling of many Ghanaians who attended the burial service on Friday.
