Former First Lady Theresa Kufuor is alive - Kufuor's office reacts to social media rumour

The Office of Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has reacted to an "erroneous reporting" on social media about the “death” of Mrs Theresa Kufuor, the wife of the former President.

In a statement signed and issued on Friday evening [August 30, 2019] by Dr Kwabena Osei-Adubofour, Senior Aide and Spokesman for the former President, it has been explained that Mrs Theresa Kufuor has not passed away.

"The Office of Former President John Kufuor has come across some erroneous reporting circulating in the media, especially on social media, alluding to the supposed death of former First Lady, Madam Theresa Kufuor."

"I wish to categorically state that Mrs Theresa Kufuor has not passed away. She is alive and currently in her residence at Airport Residential Area."

"Regrettably, I can, however, confirm the passing away of a younger sister to the former First Lady, Madam Mary Mensah, which sad event occurred on Thursday morning, 29th of August, 2019. May her soul rest in peace," the statement said.

"I urge all well-wishers and loved ones to disabuse their minds of the fact that Ghana has lost a First Lady," the statement concluded.
