PUL Mourns Former President


Members of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) yesterday trooped in Gbarnga, Bong County to participate in the funeral rite of their fallen colleague Abdullai Kamara.

Commonly known as KAK, the former PUL president died on Tuesday, April 17, at the Phebe Hospital in Gbarnga, hours following the grisly murder of radio journalist Tyron Browne of Super FM.

A mourning PUL President Mr. Charles Coffy called on all Liberian journalists to join him this morning to escort the body of the fallen media expert at his home in Grand Cape Mount County for burial.

Mr. Coffey said on Friday the union would hold a memorial service at the City Hall for the former president.

Kamara’s brother Lawrence Massaquoi, who signed for the body, said he was shocked because he did not know his brother was ill.

The whole of Monday, April 16, they were together before KAK left for Gbarnga, Massaquoi said. Kamara was also present and in full participation at the April 11 meeting held by President George M. Weah with Liberian media executives.
