See inside the plush tomb of the late John Kumah



The late former Member of Parliament (MP) for Ejisu Constituency in the Ashanti Region, John Kumah, is expected to be buried on Saturday, May 18, 2024.

The final funeral rite of the late John Kumah, who was also a Deputy Minister of Finance, began early on Saturday morning at Ejisu and was attended by scores of notable Ghanaians, including the flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

The late former minister is expected to be laid to rest later on Saturday at the Aduapakye Royal Cemetery.

A video of his final resting place at the cemetery has gone viral.

The said video, which was shared by ghpage_tv, showed a well-built structure, which is supposed to be a tomb with two openings.

One of the openings, which was on the side of the tomb, led to the grave where the former minister’s casket is expected to be placed.

The other opening was a glass door, which led to the inside of the burial chamber, the tomb itself.

The tomb was well-designed and beautifully decorated with flowers and other ornaments.

The grave had a headstone that displayed the details of the former minister.

There was another grave in the tomb whose ledger bore the name Juliana Kumah.

About John Kumah’s death:

Ghana was hit by the news of the death of one of its deputy ministers of finance, John Kumah, on Thursday, March 7, 2024.

John Kumah passed away at the age of 45 after succumbing to an illness he had been battling for several months.

John Kumah was appointed Deputy Minister for Finance by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in January 2021. He served as the Member of Parliament for Ejisu, in the Ashanti Region, and had been in parliament since 2021.

He was regarded as one of the rising stars in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and was touted by some factions within the party as a potential running mate to the flagbearer of the party, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

He recently won the party’s parliamentary primaries in his constituency overwhelmingly to represent it in the upcoming December 7, 2024, general elections.

He was an entrepreneur, a preacher, and a lawyer. Kumah served as the Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP) before he entered parliament in 2020.
