Komla was a hardworking, dedicated and consummate professional, who blazed a trail, from his days of great success as Ghana’s most popular broadcaster with Joy-FM in Accra, where he won the Ghana Journalist of the Year award, to his inspiring rise at the BBC in London.
Komla was a friend, a brother and a patriot, who cared very deeply about Ghana and Africa and also about global leadership that serves people and improve lives. His brilliant broadcast work during the recent passing of South Africa’s global icon, Nelson Mandela, was hailed by many around the world.
He always sought every opportunity to share his deep passion for Ghana’s success. He called on me during his last visit to Accra and we discussed varied issues relating to Ghana and Africa. He invited me to take better advantage of BBC’s strategic reach to project the positive achievements Ghanaians are chalking.
In his passing, Ghana, Africa and indeed the world have lost a great, dedicated and wonderful human being and world broadcaster. May his soul rest in peace.
On behalf of my Government and the people of Ghana, I wish to express my deepest sympathies and condolences to his wife, Kwansema and the children and also to his father, Professor Ernest Dumor, his siblings Mawuena and Korshie the entire family.
Our sympathies also go to his colleagues at the BBC and in the international broadcasting and journalism fraternity.
