Hackney livin' n lovin'. Sarky frosty knickers always gobby, and perpetually pissed off for good reasons. Wind up merchant extraordinaire, but a nice old fashioned unusually unusual gal... Writing lots of wrongs.

BBC Journalist Komla Dumor dead at 41

BBC Journalist Komla Dumor dead at 41

Just heard of the sudden and very sad death of Komla Dumor, the BBC’s World News programme – Focus on Africa, but can’t find much information on line, not even the BBC???? Apparently he died today of a heart attack, in his London home. He was only 41 years old.

RIP, and condolences to this family.

His last tweet mentioned an upcoming interview with South Sudan ex child soldier, Emmanuel Jal. Coincidentally I’m working on a blog post on what appears to be a no Black presenter policy at LBC Radio. It was prompted by Dotun Adebayo’s piece in The Voice news paperĀ  earlier this week.
