Mrs Josephine Tandoh Asante, the murdered Tema Port Marketing and Public Relations Manager has been buried today. Mrs. Asante was gruesomely murdered in her EMEFS Estate residence in Tema on January 13, 2019 after she had returned from GPHA senior staff end of year party that night.
She was buried on Saturday after a church service at the Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church where hundreds of mourners gathered. The mood at the church during the burial service on Saturday was solemn.
The Parish Priest of St. Thomas Moore and John Fisher Catholic Church, Achimota, Right Reverend Father George Obeng Appah delivering the sermon said the late Josephine eschewed corruption and stood her grounds in the pursuit of her work, for which reason she was eliminated. The man of God lamented over the ill attitudes of public servants which to him is destroying the social fabric of Ghana.
Clad in red and black, many mourners sat in a pensive mood staring at the casket which contained the mortal remains of the deceased.
Scores of workers of GPHA, friends of the deceased who thronged the church premises were seen in groups discussing the manner in which she was murdered.
