The widow of the late Dr. John Kumah, deputy finance minister and New Patriotic Party (NPP) member of Parliament for the Ejisu constituency in the Ashanti Region, has stated categorically that her husband did not die as a result of food poisoning, as has been circulated by sections of the traditional media and social media but he battled with a serious illness for over a year.
Apostle Lilian Kumah, who revealed these to the media, said her late husband had been battling with a terminal disease for nearly a year now since it was discovered by his doctors in Germany and that is what her husband succumbed to on Thursday, March 7, 2024, and not food poisoning.
Dr. John Kumah died at the Suhum government hospital while being conveyed in an ambulance from Ejisu to Accra for his onward planned journey to Germany, where he has been receiving treatment for his health challenge. However, the Suhum government hospital’s efforts failed to keep him alive.
In a voice full of grief, Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, who is also the General Overseer of Disciples of Christ Ministries, asked all those speculating about the cause of the death of her husband to put a stop to it because it is exacerbating the pain of her immediate family and the larger Kumah family.
She also called for swift police action against known persons such as Blessed Godsbrain Smart, popularly known as Captain Smart, who has publicly stated that her late husband was poisoned but has not been made to provide any evidence to prove the wild claim he has made about the death of John Kumah.
