Our home was a hub for Rawlings, Tsikata and others – Matilda Amissah-Arthur uncovers

In a meeting with David Ampofo, on Time With David, Mrs Amissah-Arthur is reclaimed to the minute she tested, “Is this Ghana?”, at her significant other’s memorial service. She clarified that she veered off the underlying tribute and was “drove by the soul” to convey the message she gave.
During the exchange, the veteran Broadcaster got some information about the idea of the relationship she had with her better half and looked for subtleties of his last minutes. She uncovered that they were hitched for a long time and 5months and delighted in an extremely cosy relationship.
Speaking about the fateful day Mr Amissah-Arthur passed on, the widow recalled arriving at the gym in the early hours of the morning and finishing their workout, before he passed out and was resuscitated, prior to finally giving up the ghost.
Chatting with David Ampofo, Mrs Matilda Amissah-Arthur opens up about dealing with the grief and authoring a book from her experiences. In the book titled “Strength in the storm”, she discusses the silent culture around death and the subconscious victimization of the bereaved.
Portraying her better half, she depicts him as a technocrat who was constantly a piece of the National Democratic Congress. She recounted the early days when their flat at Legon, was a hub for party big guns like JJ Rawlings and Kojo Tsikata.
Commenting on the conduct of politics in Ghana she states that “Hypocrisy and Dishonesty will not take this country anywhere”.
