- The GJA has expressed shock at the death of KABA

The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) says the nation has been dealt "a big blow" with the demise of popular Asempa FM broadcaster, Kwadwo Asare Baffuor Acheampong (KABA).
A statement issued Sunday and signed by GJA General Secretary, Kofi Yeboah, said the Association is "utterly shocked" to hear the sudden death of the host of popular afternoon political talk show Ekosi Sen on Asempa 94.7 FM.
"Indeed, the death of KABA is a big blow to the Multimedia Group, the GJA and Ghana as a whole. It is in such sense of irredeemable loss that the GJA expresses its deepest condolences to the bereaved family, especially his wife, Valentina Ofori Afriyie and little daughter, Nana Yaa, as well as the entire Multimedia family."
KABA was pronounced dead upon arrival at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where he had been rushed after he suddenly fell sick early Saturday, November 18.
He was 37 years old.
