BBC's Kumla Dumor is Dead

In what can be termed as my biggest shock of 2014, the sudden death of Kumla Dumor, one of Africa's finest journalists is one that cannot be forgotten in a hurry.

The BBC reports that he died suddenly at his home in London at the age of 41.
 

Ghana-born Dumor was a presenter for BBC World News and its Focus on Africa programme.

One of Ghana's best-known journalists, he joined the BBC as a radio broadcaster in 2007 after a decade of journalism in Ghana.

Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama said on Twitter that his country had lost one of its finest ambassadors.


May his gentle soul rest in peace
