Ghanaian Businessman and Sports Administrator, Herbert Mensah has described the slain Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, J.B. Danquah variously as a “beacon for hope”, a “bridge” between generations and a “brother” whose sad passing represents a great loss.
Mr. Mensah who shares daily inspirational messages via his Facebook fan page posted a touching message following JB’s stabbing at his East Legon residence in Accra Tuesday dawn.
Herbert Mensah said the slain MP was a peaceful man who loved both his family and country, adding that “he cannot be replaced and the “bridge” that he was to many, has been seriously damaged.”
“I am truly truly sad and pray that God gives strength and guidance to his family!”
“There are too many special younger people who form the bridge between the older generation and the younger who have sadly departed,” Herbert Mensah wrote.
Although the police suspect the killers may have entered the MP’s bedroom through an unsecured window to deal the nation the great misfortune, investigations are still underway to find the killers.
Parliament Tuesday cut short proceedings in order for members to commiserate with JB’s family. He is survived by his wife and two children.
