Uncontrollable nursing trainees mourn passing of colleagues

The death toll in the Afia Kobi Nursing Training College accident has risen to two.

One of the casualties who had been in coma at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital since last week’s tragedy, passed Sunday night.


Reports of Paulina Brogya’s death come as her colleague who died earlier, Christiana Asare, is laid to rest Tuesday.

Hundreds of mourners joined the bereaved family at Kokode in Kumasi to bid farewell to the deceased nurse trainee.

Bosomtwe District Chief Executive, Joseph Asuming, joined the mourners.

As mourners filed past the remains of Christiana, once a Sunday school teacher, they could not control her emotions.

A short sermon at the burial service reminded mourners of God’s plan for each and everyone.

Then came the time for loved ones to bid farewell. Men and women wailed uncontrollably as they watched the casket lowered into the grave.

President of the Musicians Union of Ghana, Bice Osei Kuffuor, also known as Obour, is late Christiana’s uncle.

“It is very tragic. Just 4-months ago [she was admitted in school]. She had always wanted to be a nurse and so we managed to get her admission into the nursing training school only to get news that they had an accident and she’s the only one who died. It is a very sad moment. It is a big blow,” he told Nhyira FM.
