For many, the normal burial process involves being buried in a grave after a funeral.

However, as a result of wealth and importance, some individuals have been laid to rest in lavish and luxurious places that have amazed many.

The most recent is the case of former First Lady Theresa Kufuor whose burial took place over the weekend at Daaban, a suburb of Kumasi, which is the hometown of her husband, John Agyekum Kufuor.

Here are three individuals whose burial sites have generated discussions online.

3. Theresa Aba Kufuor

Former First Lady, Theresa Aba Kufuor's final journey began on November 16, 2023, with a Requiem Mass at the Christ the King Catholic Church in Accra.

A state funeral was held the following day followed by a traditional funeral at Heroes Park in Kumasi.

A private burial was held at a private residence in a suburb of the Ashanti Regional capital. It was specially built as a gift to the former president, with the donor being identified as Dr. Kweku Oteng CEO of the Angel Group of Companies.

A video shared by Angel TV showed the mansion, which was still undergoing furnishing sitting on a hilltop at Daaban.

There is a grave dug at one entrance point which was identified as the final resting place of the former first lady.



2. Reverend Anthony Boakye

The funeral of Rev. Anthony Boakye, the late founder and overseer of the Resurrection Power New Generation Church, was a major event in Ghana, with even Ghana's President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo attending.

The funeral took place at three key venues in Accra, including Independence Square, the Accra Sports Stadium, and the Accra International Conference Centre.

In a detailed, 13-minute long video by Continent Kofi, and shared by Zionfelix on Instagram, it shows, among many other things, the state-of-the-art final resting place of Rev. Anthony Boakye.

While it is unclear the exact location of this resting place, the magnificence and beauty of the edifice that will house the final remains of the priest, caught the attention of many and generated chatter on social media.
