Mourners disappointed over Kofi Annan’s closed c

I do not think his wife would want him to be buried here in Ghana. Europeans are used to visiting cemetries where their loved ones are laid to rest by bringing them flowers and keeping the place neat, and I do not think the wife will have the privilege to be coming to Ghana every week from Switzerland to do that. The body is not in the casket. Am sure as tradition allows, his finger nails, toe nails and a bit of his hair has been brought to be buried in the home town, but the body will be buried in Switzerland.
