The body of the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan will lie in state on Tuesday at the International Conference Centre in Ghana’s capital, Accra, to allow fellow Ghanaians to pay their respects.
The casket arrived at the city’s international airport on Monday evening from Switzerland ahead of his official burial ceremony on Thursday.
The viewing will take place between 10:00 GMT and 16:00 GMT.
Diplomats, government officials, traditional leaders and other dignitaries will also pay their last respects, the BBC’s Thomas Naadi reports.
Mr Annan, the first sub-Saharan African to become the UN chief, died on 18 August aged 80 after a short illness.
