Many including President John Mahama, family members, friends and sympathizers were present to pay their last respect to the former JoyFM and BBC reporter, who died suddenly at his home in London at the age of 41.
Akwasi Sarpong, who worked closely with Komla Dumor at Joy FM and subsequently followed him up to the BBC said he [Dumor] will be deeply missed.
He indicated that the Boss player as Komla Dumor is affectionately called, was interested in humanity and would interact with everyone irrespective of his or her background.
“Komla was a personal friend of everybody, it did not matter who you were; whether you are a Head of State or a cleaner, he will always engage and talk to you”, he noted.
Akwasi Sarpong, who described today as a “painful time”, expressed his deepest commensuration to the Dumor family.
