Anlo Traditional Council Set To Hold Burial Service For Late JJ Rawlings

Written by

The Anlo Traditional Council has planned of holding another burial service for the late former President Jerry John Rawlings even without his body.
Prior to the state burial of the late Jerry John Rawlings, the Anlo Traditional Council insisted that they would not attend the funeral because the government had not invited them to the occasion.

The Council who vowed not to appear at the funeral rescinded their decision not to appear and sent two delegates to represent them at the State funeral organized for the late former president held Wednesday, January 27, 2021, held at the Black Star Square.

The two delegates laid a wreath after being called on behalf of the Anlo Traditional Council by Master of Ceremony.

Speaking to Citi News, the Secretary to the local funeral planning committee of Anlo Traditional area, Agbotadua Kumasah said, the absence of a body will not prevent them from honouring one of their own, who was also properly installed chief.

“Until his burial today, we were expecting his body to be released to us so now that they are going to bury him in Accra, we as Anlos will organise our own traditional burial for him,” Agbotadua Kumasah said
