Sir John Swan To Attend Colin Powell’s Funeral

November 4, 2021

Former Premier Sir John Swan will attend the funeral of General Colin Powell at the Washington National Cathedral in the United States.

The funeral is by invitation only, and Sir John was extended the invitation from the Powell family to attend the funeral, which will be held at the Washington National Cathedral on Friday November 5th at 1:00pm local time.

NBC reported, “General Powell died of complications from Covid-19 at age 84. He had been vaccinated, but his family said his immune system had been compromised by multiple myeloma, a blood cancer for which he had been undergoing treatment.

“The retired Army general was widely praised as a pathbreaker, having been the first Black person to serve as U.S. secretary of state and as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He spent 35 years in uniform, and the story of his rise to prominence as a soldier and a diplomat was a historic example to minorities.”
