Volta chiefs mourn Komla Dumor

Prof. Ernest Dumor, the father of Komla Dumor, accompanied by family members, last Sunday called on the President of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs, Togbe Afede XIV, to inform him formally about his son’s demise which occurred in London last Saturday, January 18, 2014.

Receiving Professor Dumor, Togbe Afede described the news as heartbreaking and said that he and the whole of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs would stand firmly behind the family in all that would do with respect to the funeral.

He indicated that the family had taken a decision to bring Komla home for his burial.

He added that the documentation associated with transporting the body to Ghana was far advanced.

The family used the opportunity to once again thank Ghanaians for their support, love and prayers.

“We are mindful of the worldwide legacy that Komla has left behind and thank the Almighty God for the impact of Komla’s life,” Prof. Dumor said.

He added that he had been particularly struck by how deeply young people had been expressing their sympathies.

“The family would ensure that in the arrangements for the funeral, the involvement of such young people is not overlooked. The family is undertaking the consultations needed so that the numerous people who feel a deep sense of loss at Komla’s passing are able to participate meaningfully in his final journey,” Prof. Dumor hinted.

Present at the meeting was Togbi Amenya Fiti V, the Paramonunt Chief of Aflao.
