Gyan's mum to be laid to rest on April 6, 2013

Published on: 13 November 2012

Asamoah Gyan’s mum will  be laid to rest on April 6, 2013 in Ghana's capital, Accra.

The 60-year-old passed away through a tragic accident last week.

She will be buried two months after the 2013 African Cup of Nations to be held in South Africa.

The Black Stars skipper, credited with his high level of mental toughness will now turn out for his country at the time that his late mum will be lying in the mortuary.

The Al Ain attacker could be motivated to lead the nation to end a 31-year-wait for an African crown.

    Why five months in the morgue?Is it b'cos Gyan is so wealthy that he wants to organize a massive funeral?I think we Africans should learn from the more advanced countries,may be she could be buried early and a foundation set in her name.

    May I be schooled on why Ghanians keep their dead in the mogue for such a long time. Wealth and influent were some reasons I came across but what really happens in the interim?

    We are all heart broken but i think April is really far. This will even put more pressure on Gyan at the nation's cup with media all over him and the players. May her soul rest in peace....
