Kofi Annan, 1938 - 2018 Tributes and Obituaries

Kofi Annan, 1938 – 2018

It is with immense sadness that the Annan family and the Kofi Annan Foundation announce that Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Laureate, passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th August after a short illness. His wife Nane and their children Ama, Kojo and Nina were by his side during his last days.

The Annan family has been touched by the outpouring of love and support they have received from around the world, and on this page we are honoured to share with you some of the beautiful tributes to the life and work of Kofi Annan.

The original statement on Mr. Annan’s passing is available on our website here, as is the tribute from the Annan family.

To mark the first anniversary (18th August 2019) we have created a video highlighting some of the ways Kofi Annan has been remembered over the past 12 months.
