Wife of late former United Nations Secretary-General, Kofi Annan is set to leave Ghana tonight for Switzerland.

The late international diplomat was buried at the Military Cemetery last Thursday after lying in state for three days.

Several dignitaries both in Ghana and abroad including the current UN Secretary-General, António Guterres were at the burial service of Annan held at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Kofi Annan married Nane, a former lawyer, in 1984 after divorcing his first wife.

They have three children, all from their previous marriages.

Ama Annan and Kojo Annan from Kofi’s first marriage and Nina from Nane’s previous relationship.

Nane, a former lawyer, is the niece of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who helped thousands of Jews to escape from the Nazis during World War II.
