Although we were one of the first to find out about the sudden demise of Ghanaian / BBC broadcast Journalist Komla Dumor we chose to the restrain from reporting first. One, because we were shocked that a man so compact, robust and healthy like him could just go in the blink of an eye and two, because we wanted concrete confirmation from the family.And whilst many news site scrammed and hurriedly did the reportage, we chose to wait and reflect.To reflect that really Komla was gone. We chose to reflect about this man who made his country and his continent proud. The man who worked tirelessly to show the world that indeed some good can come out of not only Africans but the black race. Lesson we learnt: life is short.
