The highly regarded industrialist was awarded an honorary degree from the University of Ghana in 2016 for his achievements in industry.

His business acumen has been described by family, friends, former and current employees and business associates as legendary.
He was a mentor, a visionary and an inspiration to many people in the Ghanaian business community and abroad.
Ram was a religious man who also believed strongly in social service. He contributed generously to
various organisations in the health and educational sectors in Ghana.
Ram Mohinani’s legacy will be carried forward by his beloved wife Sheela, his three sons and daughters-
in-law and seven grandchildren.
