Thanks to social media and his active presence on Twitter, we get the opportunity to remind ourselves of everything he stood for and believed in whiles alive.

Kofi Annan was an advocate for peace, equality and a world free of hate and racism and these tweets help us relive these moments.

Celebrated his birthday in grand style…

 

…and used it as an opportunity to speak on issues that he was concerned about.

Was all for women’s empowerment.

 

…and empowered Ghanaians to vote.

 

…and gave respect when due.

 

Loved music.

 

…culture…

 

…TV shows…
