Komla Dumor
Komla Dumor, one of Ghana's best-known journalists, has died suddenly in London where he was working for the British Broadcasting Corporation. Dumor, 41, died of a heart attack, according to the BBC on Saturday. He was a presenter on BBC World News and its "Focus on Africa" programme. The Ghanaian President, John Dramani Mahama, mourned Dumor's death, posting on Twitter, "Our nation has lost one of its finest ambassadors". 

In his last post on Facebook, where he has about 107,000 followers, Dumor said he was "looking forward" to interviewing a former South Sudan child soldier and musician Emmanuel JAL, in his television programme. Learning of Dumor's death, the musician said on Twitter, "Oh no, this is sad, may he rest in peace, I can't believe."

Dumor is survived by his wife, Kwansema, and his three children. On social media, when he wasn’t tweeting about and sharing photos of himself hard at work via Instagram, he was sharing stunning images of his adorable daughters. He was clearly a dad in love with his children. My heart breaks for his young family.
