On Sunday, November 19, 2023, a thanksgiving ceremony was held for Mrs. Kufuor at a Kumasi Catholic Church with the Otumfuo in attendance.

In a video available to GhanaWeb, the Asantehene was led by a motorcade, with himself and Lady Julia being chauffeured in his antique car.

Upon arrival at the famous Roman Hill, they are ushered into the premises after being received by the presiding bishop amid the blowing of trumpet and praise-singing by a traditional entourage.

The praise-singing continued till the Otumfuo and Lady Julia took their seats at the front pew of the church.

Minutes later, the former president, John Agyekum Kufuor, was also ushered into the premises wearing a white shirt with black trousers.

The ceremony caps a busy week for the former first family, with a Requiem Mass last Thursday kicking off the final funeral rites of the late Mrs. Kufuor.

On Friday, a state funeral was held in Accra before the traditional funeral took place and the burial on November 18, 2023.

The Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II was represented at the royal funeral of the late First Lady, Theresa Kufuor, on Saturday, November 18, 2023.

The Kumawuhene represented the Asantehene, on whose turf the ceremony was being held. The event took place at the Heroes Park in Kumasi before burial later the same day at Daaban.

Mrs Kufuor died on Sunday, October 1, 2023, 24 days before her 89th birthday.
