The Komla Dumor Memorial Foundation, a foundation launched in honour

of late ace Joy FM and BBC broadcaster Komla Dumor launched its

official website on Thursday.

The website, www.komladumorfoundation.org, will be used to enhance

and promote the values of the late broadcaster whose work touched the

lives millions across the world.

Creator of the website, Mr. Kwei Quaye-Foli, explaining the contents

of the website at the launch at the Ghana International Press Centre

said it contains a photo and video gallery, code of ethics and

contacts of the foundation, a blog, and an event calendar to give

visitors up-to-speed information of the foundation.

Speaking at the launch, Dzifa Abla Gomashie, Deputy Minister for

Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, who is also a board member of the

foundation, challenged Ghanaian journalists to strive to use their

professional training to the benefit of society.

According to her, "Komla's passion was investigative journalism, he

investigated a lot of things. Through him, issues that we would not

have ordinarily heard about, we heard about them. And we heard about

them in a fair and balanced way."

She added that, "We heard about all the sides. We heard about the

views of other people, never about what he thought about it; never did

he allow what he thought to override what the truth was."

Mrs Mary Chinery-Hesse, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the

foundation officially launched the website.

She also described the late Komla Dumor, who started his career at Joy

FM, as the man of the people and the website reflects the ideals he

stood for.

"The website is an important tool in their endeavour to promote the

principles of Komla Dumor and I urge the media to use the website to

help tell the African story as Komla Dumor did," Mrs Chinery-Hesse
