According to the family, on Friday June 18, 2021, there will be a silent night of wake keeping at the home of the deceased in Michael Wright Community, Kabbeh in the Township of Barnesville.
The remains of the late Gobah will be removed on Saturday, June 19, 2021, from the St. Moses Funeral Parlor and taken to the Light Temple Church in Behwein Community, Barnersville Township at 8A.M. and funeral service will begin at 10 A.M.
The Union calls on all of its members, well-wishers and sympathizers to assemble at the Union’s Headquarters on Friday at 10:30 A.M. for the opening of the book of condolence.
The Union described the death of Gobah as an irreparable loss to the Journalism Community in Liberia and noted that his death has reduced by one the number of studious mid-career media practitioners in the country.
Melvin Gobah began his professional career with the Liberia Media Center playing lead roles on many media development projects. Gobah consulted in the planting of many local radio stations across the country and lately worked with Capitol FM as Operations Manager in Monrovia.
