- The NPP member says he promised KABA some tubers of yam before his death
- Abronye DC says he didn't believe the death of KABA until he saw his friend sign the book of condolence
A member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, aka Abronye DC, has disclosed that he was about to send the ace broadcaster, Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong (KABA), some tubers of yam only to be informed about his death.
Abronye DC recalling his last conversation with KABA, described his sudden demise as ‘shocking’.
“I didn’t believe he was dead, it is painful and God should keep him. I spoke to him last week and even promised him yams. We even laughed about it. On my way traveling to Sunyani I was given the sad news,” he said.
Kwame Baffoe who spoke to Adom News after signing the book of condolence, said he never believed KABA had died until he saw several politicians, friends and family sign the book of condolence.
Abronye DC who was clearly devastated in his conversation, noted that KABA was a very fine and humble gentleman who was objective in his line of duty.
“I delayed coming here because I wish it’s a lie. But my friends told me they have signed the book; it's the reason I had to follow up,” Abronye said in an interview.
The NPP man prayed for God to grant KABA a befitting rest on his journey home.
He also encouraged his wife, Valentina and other family members to pull themselves together to remain strong.
The respected Asempa FM host was pronounced dead after he was rushed to the Korle-Bu teaching hospital for emergency care.
Though the hospital has not yet released his autopsy report, there are some unconfirmed reports that state the journalist died of a low sugar episode due to diabetes.
