Last Saturday, Ghana lost one of its most illustrious sons.
Starting his life in Kumasi and rising to the level of becoming the first Sub Saharan African to occupy the seat of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan lived a rather fulfilled life.
With his international personality, there was no doubt the news of his passing would make global headlines.
International news outlets such as the BBC, CNN, Forbes and others covered his passing.
Here is how some selected media houses broke the news of Kofi Annan’s passing to their audience.
The New York Times
RIP Kofi Annan.
