Makeni Town is packed full with government officials, public functionaries and diplomats as well as thousands of mourners who have come to the Northern City not only to mourn with the President but to take part in the funeral ceremonies. Last night, there was a wake-keeping ceremony where tributes will be paid to the late man.
