Former United Nations Secretary General and Nobel Peace Laureate Kofi Annnan has died aged 80.
Annan passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th in Switzerland after a short illness. His wife, Nane Annan and their children Kojo, Nina and Ama were by his side during his last days.
Kofi Annan first married Titi Alakija, a Nigerian woman, in 1965. Together they had a daughter, Ama, and a son, Kojo. Annan separated with Titi in the late seventies but he remained an involved parent and lived with his son Kojo for a while after his separation with the mother.
After several years of living apart from his first wife, in 1981, Annan fell in love with Nane Lagergren, a lawyer at the U.N.
Nane was divorced and has a young daughter, Nina, from her first marriage.
