After his ill-fated demise and well-organized burial which was characterized by glowing tributes paid by family and friends worldwide, it was anticipated that Komla Dumor’s name and legacy will not be entangled in any form of cynicism – but few days after he was laid to rest, his wife has come under some abuse.
A lady using the name, Maame Serwaa Boateng but have the picture of Miss Ghana 2009, Mimi Areme, as her profile picture is causing some perplexity on social media as she spewed vituperation’s and insults directed at Komlas’s widow, Kwansema Dumor, accusing her of causing the death of the international broadcaster.
Some of the repulsive message posted by Maame Serwaa are published below unedited.
“Kwansema will never have peace in her entire miserable life. Her kids will grow to hate her. This is a lady who insulted Komla’s mother when she was alive. She doesn’t even care about her own kids. Everything is Komla, even when Komla was dying on Saturday morning when he fell down; this evil Kwansema stood there and watched him die. Their first child, Elinam was the one who went and called Herbert’s wife who got to Komla’s house and found him dead. It was Herbert’s wife who called the ambulance. Elinam asked her mum why she hated Komla so much. Kwansema, madam gloves, God will punish you.”
“Kwansema is very wicked and heartless. Kwansema, God will punish u, I swear.”
Reacting to the use of her picture and the accompanying series of abuse leveled at Mrs. Dumor, Miss Ghana 2009, Mimi Areme posted on her Facebook wall the following day;-
“It has come to my notice that someone by name Maame Serwaa Boateng is using my picture to harass and cyber bully the family of Komla Dumor especially his wife. I do not have any clue who this imposter is. Whoever is doing that is very childish and crazy. Once again, I don’t have a clue about that and please help me report the page to put an end to this madness.”
When “Razz” newspaper reached out to Mimi for clarification on the situation, she explained that, her attention was drawn to the unpleasant action of Maame Serwaa by some of her friends. According to her, her friends sent some of the abusive messages to her and she was gutted.
She revealed that, she knows nothing about the situation and told the paper about the actions she has taken concerning the issue. “I have issued a disclaimer on my Facebook wall to at least, show people I have nothing to do with what is going on. I have also asked some friends to help me report the page to Facebook.
When probed on whether she knew Komla Dumor or his family, Mimi retorted, “Komla was only a friend on Facebook and we followed each other on twitter and instagram and that was all. I never met him or the wife in person.”
