The Difficult Task Of Breaking A Sad News To Octogenarian Mother Of Amissah-Arthur

Cape Coast, Ola residents and the entire Central Region are in a state of shock and grief as news of the sudden passing of former Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur hits home.

On Friday, a large crowd of mourners’, including executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the clergy and other high-profile personalities within the metropolis thronged the residence of his mother, Effe Amissah-Arthur, to offer their condolences.

Initially, the family did not want people to get close to the family house because they had difficulty breaking the news to Effe Amissah-Arthur because they feared something terrible could happen to the octogenarian.

They resorted to diplomacy and tact in breaking the sad news to her because of her age and how close she was with the late former Vice President.

Her phone was switched off, the radio and TV sets were disconnected and eventually, the electricity was disconnected in their bid to manage the sad news of the death of her son.

At about mid-day, the crowd grew thicker and some elderly members of the family together with priests from the Methodist church managed to break the news to her.

Joy News’ Richard Kwadwo Nyarko reported that it was a bated breath moment for the old lady as her world stood still.
