Today Kofi Annan is laid to rest in Ghana. While many have gathered in Accra to say their final farewells, millions more are here in spirit, grieving the loss of a remarkable leader and celebrating a life well lived. Here you can follow a live stream of the state funeral, together with all those who have been touched by Kofi Annan's tireless work for a fairer, more peaceful world: kofiannan.ch/2OgtwzD (link in profile).
Today at the Kofi Annan Foundation we were honoured to receive the many guests who stopped by and signed the book of condolences for Mr. Kofi Annan. The book will be available to the public again tomorrow, from 10:00 to 17:00, on the ground floor of Rue de Varembé 9-11 in Geneva. #RIPKofiAnnan
It is with immense sadness that the Annan family and the Kofi Annan Foundation announce that Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Laureate, passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th August after a short illness...
I’m delighted to share with you our efforts over the last year to galvanise action for peace and outline the road ahead in the Kofi Annan Foundation’s 2017 annual report: Road to Peace [link in bio].
