Mr Herbert Mensah, President of the Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) briefed the Ghana Rugby Family on the upcoming Rugby Africa Bronze Cup scheduled for May 2018 and said that it was, in fact, more a Ghana flag flying event than just a Rugby event.
Dumor died on 18 January 2014 in his London home after a cardiac arrest, having been on the air the day before. Herbert Mensah and Komla were extremely close friends, and Herbert remembered that tragic day as though it was yesterday.
