Asamoah Gyan to bid mother final farewell next weekend

By Ameenu Shardow

Ghana President John Mahama is one of the top personalities expected to attend next weekend’s burial of the mother of Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.

Cecelia Love Amoako died in November last year in a car crash in Accra.

The deceased mother of Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan, will be buried at her hometown in Mamponteng on Saturday March 16, 2013.

She will however be laid in state at her Gbawe residence from Friday March 15 before a traditional sending off the following morning.

It is at this occasion that several personalities in government, academia, sports, entertainment, friends and sympathizers are expected to pay their last respects.

Top of the list will be President Mahama who promised to attend the final funeral rites before the Black Stars departed for the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa.

Officials from the Ghana FA, ex and current players of the various national teams, entertainment icons and other well-meaning Ghanaians are also expected to figure prominently.

GHANAsoccernet.com also understands a delegation from the Al Ain Football Club, where the leading striker of the Black Stars plays his club football is expected in the country somewhere next week for the ceremony.

The official thanksgiving service is also slated to take place on Sunday March 17, at the deceased residence in Gbawe.

Gyan is the latest Black Stars player within weeks to bury a parent following last month’s burial of the father of defender John Boye.

    hope the prez see the wisdom in doing the same to other civil servants who have dedicate their life and time for Ghana and not only for this kunfo)-domfo)striker

  2. Tony says:

    I think this is a wrong move by the PRESIDENT. Why was he not at John Boye’s father funeral?………..Is he going to add these kind of things to his diary?.. Attend all the other players events?

  3. Sandi Majavu says:

    Guys tell me something, why is the funeral happening now if she died in November? Here is South africa a funeral happens in no less than two weeks after death.

  4. oluwole says:

    The circumstances surrounding the death of Gyan mother’s, his position as the captain of the black stars, and the schedules of the President at that time can necessitate the President to attend.
    The President cannot attend all player’s or civil servant’s loved ones burial and i think it is wrong to judge him or crucify the president on this.

  5. Asem beba dabi says:

    Hahahaha! People hv nt even realized that gyan is also one of the gay partners to the president nd his vice. They chat lyk room mates of a hostel. I know what im talkin abt. They are all under freemason. Dont be surprised cuz its an open secret.

  6. mojahadine says:

    Doesn’t the president of Ghana have anything to do with his time? If he is going to that, then he should go to the funeral of the parent of every Ghanaian citizen.

  7. Joe says:

    Good president.u can only see this in europe nd america.Asamoah gyan,ministers nd the president ar all servants of ghana bt in differnt capacities.And good leaders show how mch they care nd not how mch they kno. Well done mr president.
