Serbia’s Honorary Consul to Ghana, Steve Mawuenyega, has been found dead at his Accra residence.
The 63-year-old was reportedly found by his daughter and caretaker on Monday morning after several failed attempts to reach him on the phone.
Accra Regional Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Effia Tenge says investigations are underway after officers were sent to the scene to examine the body which has since been deposited at the morgue for autopsy.
Meanwhile, sources close to the family say his death has left many in shock since he was not ill.
Recall that in 2019, the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia, Ivica Dacic, on a visit to Ghana, proposed Steve Ma-wuen-yega for appointment as the honorary consul of Serbia in Accra, a role which was subsequently approved by Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.
Until his death, Mawuenyega was a member of the General Assembly of the Honorary Consular Corps of Ghana and was also in charge of relations between Serbia and the government of Ghana.
