The casket containing the mortal remains of late Vice President, Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur
was Friday, marched through some principal streets of Accra on its final journey to the newly
built Military Cemetery at Tse Addo in Accra.
Hundreds followed the casket from the Accra International Conference Centre where pre-burial
service was held for the late former Vice President.
Hundreds followed the march to the new military cemetary which was commissioned in April
2018. It has the capacity to accommodate more than 10,000 graves to be made of military
personnel, General’s, retired personnel and their entitled families.
The facility also has a space for Presidential and prominent citizens of the country. The Military
High Command ensured the new cemetery was built to relieve pressure on the Osu Military
Cemetery, which is reportedly running out of burial space.
