Late Professor Wolo To Be Buried Saturday

MONROVIA, September 28 (LINA) - The funeral of the late media veteran and academician, Professor James Kpateh Wolo, will take place at the Holy Martyrs Parish in Barnersville on Saturday, October 1.

Mr. Wolo died at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital on September 11 following a brief illness, according to an announcement by the family Wednesday.

According to the Wolo family, a quiet hour will be observed by the family and sympathizers at the St. Moses Funeral Parlours on the Somalia Drive in Gardnersville on Friday, September 30, followed by a silent night of wake-keeping at the home of the deceased in Area C, Barnersville Estate.

With the exception of the Government of Liberia, Liberia Broadcasting System, the church and family, all tributes will be paid during the wake-keeping which takes place at the church on Saturday, starting at 10 a.m., followed by the Mass of Resurrection at 11 a.m., the announcement stated.

Prior to his demise, the late Wolo served in various capacities in both the government and private sector.

He was Deputy Minister of Information for Administration, Professor of Mass Communication at the University of Liberia, Director-General of LBS and Managing Editor of the Liberia News Agency, among others.

The late Wolo is survived by his widow, Priscilla B. Wolo, eight children, several grandchildren, brothers and sisters, nephews, nieces and a host of other relatives and friends in Liberia, the United States, Ghana and other parts of the world.

Meanwhile, the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has announced the opening of a Book of Condolence in remembrance of Prof. Wolo.

 PUL President K. Abdullai Kamara described Prof. Wolo as “a journalistic mentor who stayed in touch with younger generations of Liberian journalism.”

"Prof! As we affectionately called him, was just not a teacher and a mentor but guardian for many of us and we will never fall short of celebrating him," Kamara asserted.

The PUL is calling on all journalists and Wolo's students to converge on the Headquarters of the Union at 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 29, to honor their
fallen teacher and colleague.
