WE HAVE NOT PRINTED ANY SPECIAL CLOTH FOR FUNERALThe Amissah-Arthur family has noted with concern a specially designed funeral cloth with the image of former Vice President K. B. Amissah-Arthur on it.We wish to point out that we are not behind the printing of this specially designed cloth. We are also not expecting the general public to mourn with us in that particular cloth nor in any other specially designed funeral cloth.

Indeed the funeral cloth printed with the photo of former Vice President Amissah-Arthur runs counter to the values that he stood for.Mr Amissah-Arthur was a simple yet elegant person. He was always of the view that resources, no matter how little, could be put to more profitable causes such as the education of children.For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that the dress code for the funeral is black, not a specially designed cloth.JABESH AMISSAH-ARTHURFOR: THE FAMILY[MONDAY, 16TH JULY 2018]
