About John Kumah’s death:

Ghana was shaken by the news of Deputy Minister of Finance John Kumah’s death on Thursday, March 7, 2024.

John Kumah passed away at the age of 45 after battling an illness for several months.

Appointed Deputy Minister for Finance by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in January 2021, Kumah also served as the Member of Parliament for Ejisu in the Ashanti Region since 2021.

He was considered one of the rising stars in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and was seen by some party factions as a potential running mate to the party’s flagbearer, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

Kumah recently won his party’s parliamentary primaries in his constituency by a significant margin, preparing to represent it in the upcoming December 7, 2024, general elections.

An entrepreneur, preacher, and lawyer, Kumah was the Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP) before entering parliament in 2020.

He is survived by his wife, Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, and their six children.
