Akufo-Addo consoles Zimbabwe on Robert Mugabe’s death
The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended his condolences to the Government and people of Zimbabwe and to the family of the former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe.
The former President died on Friday, 6th September, 2019.
He was at 95.
In a letter to President Emerson Mnangagwa, President Akufo-Addo stated that “Robert Mugabe will be remembered, above all, for his immense contribution to the liberation of Zimbabwe and Southern Africa from imperialism, colonialism and racist rule. His dedication to the cause of Pan-Africanism is fully acknowledged.”
The President added that “through his marriage to the late Sarah “Sally” Francesca Hayfron, his first wife, the Ghanaian people have always considered him, and, indeed, all other Zimbabweans, as our in-laws. Ghana, therefore, shares in the grief and loss of the Zimbabwean people, as we mourn his demise. He will be sorely missed.”
