A thanksgiving ceremony for Mrs. Kufuor took place on Sunday, November 19, 2023, at a Kumasi Catholic Church, graced by the presence of Otumfuo and captured in a video by GhanaWeb.
The Asantehene arrived in a motorcade, accompanied by Lady Julia in his vintage car, and was welcomed at Roman Hill with trumpet blasts and traditional praises.
