Ace broadcaster Kwadwo Asare-Baffuor Acheampong affectionately called KABA would now be buried on December 16, 2017, 3news.com gathered.
The final decision for his burial was made on Thursday after a meeting was held involving KABA’s father, mother, a team from the Multimedia Group where he worked and representatives from his hometown Adumasi in the Eastern region..
The family had earlier proposed January 20, 2018 when they met on Wednesday November 22, 2017.
Though he would be laid in state at the forecourt of the State House in Accra, the burial would however take place at Akwamu Adumasa. The decision to bury him at Adumasa was influenced by the fact that he was from a royal family and would therefore be appropriate to be buried in his hometown.
Kwadwo Asare-Baffuor Acheampong died in the early hours of Saturday, November 18, 2017, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after a recurring illness.
Until his death, he was the regular host of ‘Ekosii Sen’, a popular political talk show on Accra-based Asempa FM.
A day before his death, KABA reported to work but was asked to go home because he was not looking well, only for him to be rushed to the hospital on Saturday where he was pronounced dead.
He was survived by his journalist wife, Valentina Ofori Afriyie, and a seven-month old baby girl.
The observance of his one week celebrations has been fixed for Saturday, November 25, 2017 where details of the final funeral rites would officially be announced.
