The following is a tribute by the New Patriotic Party to the memory of broadcaster Komla Dumor.

The New Patriotic Party is saddened by the loss of Komla Dumor, who died suddenly at his London home on Saturday at the age of 41.

Undoubtedly, Komla Dumor was one of the brightest and best journalists our country, and indeed the rest of Africa, has been blessed with over the last decade.

The leadership and entire membership of the party wishes to convey our thoughts, sympathies and prayers to the wife, children and family of Komla Dumor in this time of mourning. We hope you will be consoled by your cherished memories of Komla and be comforted by the presence of family and friends.

Ghana is grateful for his dedication, pride in our country and service to Africa and the world.     

It was through hard work and determination that he was, in November 2013, named in the list of 100 most influential Africans, as he established himself as one of the emerging African faces of global broadcasting, who had considerable influence on how the continent is covered. As a presenter on the BBC World News and its “Focus on Africa” programme, Africa’s energy and enthusiasm seemed to shine through every story Komla told.

We will miss him dearly and it is our prayer that God grants him rest and safely keeps him in His bosom.

Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey
National Chairman
