Since the news of the death of Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, known in political circles as Sir John, many people have visited his residence in Accra to commiserate with the family.

The mood at the late Forestry Commission Chief Executive Officer’s house was solemn with many people attired in black and red at the time of ABC News‘ arrival at the house.

Among dignitaries to have already visited the residence were executives of the New Patriotic Party led by the Party Chairman, Freddie Blay, government officials, members of the opposition National Democratic Congress and persons from private sector.

Notable at the residence of the late Sir John was the strict adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols as visitors came in to sympathize with the family.

At the entrance of the house were buckets of water with soap and tissues to ensure anyone entering washes the hands.

Also, some persons have been stationed at the entrance of the house to ensure that as many times as one enters or goes out of the house, the hand sanitizer is applied.

In addition, persons who come in are encouraged to limit the duration of their visit to avoid creating a crowd in the house and to help observe social distancing.

Many of those who visited took time to write some words in the book of condolence opened at the residence.

The former General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party passed away on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 few days earlier.

Tributes have been pouring in for him from all sides of the political divide.
