By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, August 31 (LINA) - The remains of fallen journalist and media executive Mamadee Diakite were Wednesday laid to rest at the Muslim Cemetery in Sinkor following funeral rites at the Newport Street Mosque in Monrovia.

Diakite died at the S.D. Cooper Hospital in Sinkor Tuesday, August 30.

No cause of death has been released, but family sources hinted that the popular talk-show host was diabetic.

Journalists in their numbers early Wednesday morning trooped to the head office of the Press Union of Liberia, where a Book of Condolence was opened in remembrance of the journalist.

Amidst mourning and wailing, throngs of sympathizers in a massive convoy drove behind the ambulance with the casket bearing the remains of the late Diakite whose death shocked many Liberians at home and abroad.

Prior to his death, the late Diakite served as host of the radio talk show - The Truth Breakfast Show following which he established the Prime Communications Network where he served as presenter of the popular talk-show, The Prime Morning Drive.

The late Diakite, who obtained a law degree from the Louise Arthur Grimes School of Law at the University of Liberia, also worked for the Ducor Communications Network and the Ministry of Finance as media consultant.

Diakite was a staff of the Renaissance Communications Incorporated which operates Truth FM 91.6 and Real Television Channel 7 where he rose to prominence.

He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, four children, mother, siblings and a host of other relatives and friends.
