The Ghana Actors Guild has indicated that it has not paid a visit to family of the late Nii Odoi Mensah because it has been focusing on how to get the body back home from China.

Nii Odoi Mensah, who once served as President of the Ghana Actors Guild (GAG), passed on in China while undergoing kidney treatment.

Family head, Nii Kwa, had expressed disappointment in actors, movie producers and associations Nii Odoi joined for not showing up at the house to console the family a week after the sad incident.

But speaking to Hitz FM, General Secretary of GAG, Ziggy Netteyson, said their concentration has been on getting the remains transported to Ghana.

“Honestly we are all confused. We don’t know what to do. Apart from that, we are doing our best to liaise with the ministry to link up with the embassy in Beijing for the transfer of his body. The minister travelled, I learnt she was back this weekend,” he said.

“We are more concerned about bringing the body. The body is not here; who are we going to greet? I don’t understand their complaint. If that’s what they want, we can organise ourselves. It’s not a big deal. The guild is also part of the family. We should also be there for people to come and greet us,” Ziggy Netteyson added.

Meanwhile, the Film Producers Association of Ghana says the family is yet to inform the body of the loss of their relative, one reason it has also not visited the family.

Public Relations Officer, Michael Kwaku Ola claims it was working with other quarters to get the body transported to Ghana.

“...the family says it wants the body in Ghana. That’s the most important thing. If we are not careful, the Chinese will cremate him... The truth of the matter is, when you lose your loved one, you inform people. Have they informed us officially that they have lost him? They have not,” he told Pulse.com.gh.
