As the tradition of the people of Walewale demands, the mother-in-laws are mandated to cook for the entire village during the funeral rites of their mother-in-law.
Samira Bawumia despite being the first lady took upon herself to humbly observe the tradition by cooking the local food and serving the entire village of Walewale.
Photos of the gesture and the implications of the tradition has since gone viral with massive reactions from Ghanaians.
The vice President of Ghana, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia sadly lost his mother some few months ago. She was buried as the Islamic customs required. Today was set as the final funeral rites of the beloved mother.
People from all walks of life, politicians from both rulling New Patriotic Party and the opposition parties were all present at the funeral ground to pay their last respect.
Below are some photos of the first lady in kitchen.
