The three-day state funeral for former United Nations Secretary-General, Kofi Annan enters day two today, Wednesday.

Government officials, Ministers, Members of Parliament, diplomats, Chiefs among other dignitaries, are expected to file past and pay their last respects to Kofi Annan who has been lying in state since Tuesday at the Accra International Conference.

Ghanaians from all walks of life had the opportunity to file past the body on Tuesday.They were however disappointed because the casket was shut.

According to some of them, the closure of the casket was not in sync with the Ghanaian way of honouring the dead.

Mr. Annan died in Switzerland in August this year.

He was the 7th Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa is expected in Ghana Thursday, September 13, to attend the final funeral service.

He will be in the company of a host of other African heads of state including Alassane Dramane Ouattara of Ivory Coast, George Weah of Liberia, Hage Geingob of Namibia, Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger among others, Information Minister designate Kojo Oppong Nkrumah told the media.
