Former President Mills’ tomb is supported by brick stones

The tomb of late President Professor John Evans Atta Mills, is in a bad state, five years after he was buried at the Asomdwe Park in Accra.

A visit to the Park by Citi News revealed that the well-crafted metallic cover of the tomb, has developed grim cracks detaching itself from the rest of the artefact.

Portions of the tomb are also falling apart, and managers of the park have had to support it with blocks. Meanwhile, management of the park, declined to speak to Citi News about the development when contacted.


President Mills died at the 37 Military Hospital on July 24, 2012, and was buried in August that year.

A park close to the Osu Castle was subsequently prepared to serve as the burial ground for the late president.

The facility, which had geese and fish pond, ostriches, guinea fowls among other beautiful scenic attractions, also served as a recreational centre.
