WHY DO PEOPLE WANT SEE DEAD BODY


Kofi Annang's closed casket should mark the beginning of closed caskets and coffins in Ghana's cultural setting. Why are we so obsessed with the dead? It is not as if we didn't know him when he was alive. So why this itchiness to see him when he is now dead and gone. What is in the casket is Kofi Annang's lifeless body. Why would we want to see that? This thing that we have been doing is nothing but macabre. Culture, they say, is dynamic. Kofi Annang's example provides a good opportunity for the country to move away from this macabre cultural practice. If anything the viewing must be done by family members and very close associates. Not by the generality of the public!
