In Accra, from Kwabenya through Haatso, the West Lands, Legon to Accra Central, the Ghana News Agency (GNA) observed that people were clad in black and red cloths, while some vehicles had red bands hanged on them, all to signify their grief at the death of President Mills.
Uncharacteristic, was the seemingly quietness and the lack of traffic on the usually busy road from Kwabenya/Atomic roundabout through to Legon, and although people went about their daily activities, obvious sorrow was seen on their faces.
Mr David Dramani, NDC Constituency Secretary of Dome-Kwabenya, on Tuesday told the GNA that a durbar would be held to observe the one week celebration at the Kwabenya public school park.
When GNA arrived at the park at about 0800 hours, canopies had already been raised.
Mr Dramani said dignitaries, including Municipal and District Chief Executives, traditional leaders as well as political party leaders were expected to attend the ceremony.
