King Kama Laid to Rest After A Well Attended Civic Funeral
Reports monitored from Sierra Leone say, the country’s veteran footballer, Kama Dumbuya has been laid to rest Friday 23rd June 2017 at the Kissy Road cemetery after a colourful ceremony that attracted local and foreign dignitaries across the country.
The Vice President, Victor Foh reportedly chaired the laying out ceremony at the Miatta Conference Hall in Brookfields where a book of condolence was also opened.
The Sports Minister wore King Kama’s N0 9 Jersey as one of the chief mourners!
Janaza prayers were conducted at the Bambara Town mosque Sackville Street before a large crowd of football fans, sympathisers and government officials who accompanied the body to the Kissy Road cemetery.
King Kama played football at a time when the love for the game and patriotism were the main motivating factors. He was never on salary and didn’t own any assets. Close friends say he never owned a bank account. Worst still, he was neglected and abandoned to rot in poverty and misery.
Betraying Sierra Leone for the sake money was unthinkable for King Kama! His only objective in the pitch was victory for Sierra Leone! What a patriotic son of the soil!
It is my sincere hope and prayer that the remaining veteran footballers who are currently languishing in poverty will be assisted by the government with accommodation in some government quarters and monthly allowances to save them from experiencing King Kama’s sad end.
May Allah forgive him for his mistakes and receive his gentle soul in heaven.
