Despite the Funeral Planning Committee for the burial of late president Jerry John Rawlings agreeing on Wednesday, December 23, 2020, as the date for the final rites, it has been postponed indefinitely.
The date was postponed due to concerns raised by some of the families regarding the customary rites.
The government gave the order to allow the family to settle all outstanding issues before the burial.
A communique by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration to the international community and diplomatic missions revealed a change in the schedule.
“…due to unforeseen circumstances, the funeral will not be held from 20th December 2020 as planned.
“The new date for the funeral will be communicated in due course,” the statement read.
