Police to open fresh investigations into Caesar's death

Listen to article

Accra, Sept. 16, GNA - The family of Archibald Kabutey Caesar, who was nominated as the District Chief Executive for Dangbe East, on Friday appealed to Government to order fresh investigations into the motor accident that claimed his life.

Mr Caesar, 45, his 46-year old wife, Charlotte and 19 year-old son Richmond died in the fatal accident on the Prampram - Dahwenya road on August 28, 2005.

Ms Henrietta Kabuki Caesar, sister of the deceased, made the request at the Castle, Osu when a family delegation formally informed the Government about the death of Mr Caesar, who was the parliamentary candidate of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Dangbe East for Election 2004 and presented the customary drinks to the Government.

She alleged that people at the scene of the accident gave conflicting reports, while the manner in which the Prampram Police handled the report left much to be desired.

Mr Oliver Bonsi, who led the delegation, said Mr Caesar and family would be buried at the Osu Cemetery on October 1; to be followed by the funeral at Dansoman.

"Mr Caesar chose to serve at where the battle was very tough ... I hope the daughters she left behind will grow up to become important people like him," he said.

The Vice President pledged that the Government would act on their request, adding his death sent the chills down the spine of every member of Government.

He described Mr Caesar as young, up and coming and promising with the potential of helping to build a more vibrant NPP.
