Dear Nana Ama, I write on behalf of Ms Arabella Kiesbauer, a popular television presenter in both Austria and Germany, who has a German mother, Ms Hannelore Kiesbauer, and a Ghanaian father, Ebenezer Samuel Mbir Amissah, who, according to her mother, is deceased.
Ms Kiesbauer does not believe that her father is dead and that her mother just doesn't want to encourage her to continue with the search.
Her father was said to have been born in a village called Kuntu. He was known to have studied engineering in Kumasi and later went to further his studies in Bonn and Karlsruhe in Germany.
According to Ms Kiesbauer, who was born on April 8, 1969, her parents met during the late 1960s when Mr Amissah arrived in Germany for studies.
It is worth mentioning that Ms Kiesbauer, who is very popular in Austria and Germany, has stated her desire to initiate and support some charitable projects in Ghana and so the Ghana Embassy in Switzerland would appreciate assistance in tracing Ms Kiesbauer's paternal family as a means of encouraging her to support her fatherland.
Daniel Okaiteye Blessyn,
Embassy of Ghana,
