CHAIRMAN WONTUMI MOURNS HIS BROTHER AND FRIEND, LAWYER DR. JOHN KUMAH

My good friend and brother John Kumah. My heart is heavy. My eyes are full of tears. I am devastated and distraught. I have been struggling to find the appropriate words to describe how I feel right now, because I know how you would have reacted if I were in your position. It is a mixed feeling of disbelief and shock. And this unfortunate news takes me back to some few months ago.


I remember how you stood by my side and ensured that I survived at the time that I was helplessly dying. Little did I know that I was going to survive only for me to be confronted with this devastating news of your passing months later.


I have lost a loyal friend and faithful brother whose loss is simply irreplaceable, not only to me, but to the region as well.


Rest well, my brother. We will surely meet in heaven one day.


Your brother and friend,


Chairman Wontumi
