Komla’s death not of God - Duncan-Williams

General Overseer of Christian Action Faith Ministries (CAFM), Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams says the sudden passing of ace BBC broadcaster, Komla Dumor, is not of God.
He said 41-year-old Komla Dumor was a "very spiritual person with a good heart" which makes it difficult to explain why he should die at the prime of his life. "He was one that didn't have just a good head [God] but had a good heart; it was something phenomenal".
The former Joy FM/BBC presenter died of "cardiac arrest" in his home in London on Saturday, January 18, 2014. He was survived by three children and a wife. "Did God do this? No. This is not God's dealing. This is not how God deals with His children, especially with his commitment and his spirituality and seriousness to the things of God," Archbishop Duncan-Williams said on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM, Friday.
"There is no amount of explanation that one can give to the family and the children why such a thing should happen to such a good person like Komla". He told Bernard Nasara Saibu, co-host of the programme that it would take about a century for Ghana and Africa to have a man like Komla.
"It takes sometimes a hundred years to have men and people like the Komla Dumor type. We've lost a great asset and a gift not just from this country [Ghana] but for the whole of Africa," he grieved.
The Archbishop prayed for God's "supernatural intervention" on behalf of the family "in this very difficult situation".
