Rawlings, Konadu mourn Hajia Nneba






Mahama’s mother, Hajia Abiba Nneba passed on at the SSNIT Hospital Tuesday, 14th June. Owing to Muslim traditions, the late Hajia Nneba should have been buried within 24 hours of her death, but some controversies surrounded the supposed place for her burial.

However, it is believed that this has been resolved as reports reveal she will be finally laid to rest at her hometown Busunu in the West Gonja District on Friday.
