Major Maxwell Adam Mahama lost his life earlier this year when his identity was mistaken for an armed robber by residents of Dekyira Buase (now called New Obuase) in the Central region. He left behind two children and a wife who celebrates him at any given moment in her life.
Meanwhile, the government has set up a special fund for the bereaved widow and her family. According to the Defence Minister, while the government has established a trust fund which will be known as ‘Major Mahama Trust Fund’ to cater for his wife, Barbara, and their kids, it has also secured employment for the widow.
