The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) will Tuesday, January 15, open a Book of Condolence in memory of fallen Liberian journalist Emmanuel K. Mulbah, ahead of his burial on Saturday, January 20th. The signing of the book begins at 11 a.m. at the Union's Clay Street headquarters.
Emmanuel suddenly died on Saturday, January 5th at the St. Joseph Catholic Hospital due to what medical Doctors called "heart failure."
He is reported to have collapsed while playing football in Paynesville and was pronounced dead shortly upon arrival at the Catholic Hospital.
He was video stringer for the Reuters News Agency and also served the Liberian media for 20 with various institutions including the State Television (ELTV), Kiss TV , Ducor Broadcasting Corporation (DCTV) ), Sarafina Ventures and Communications Incorporated (Love TV) and Power TV.
The Press Union has since extended profound sympathy to the immediate family, describing the loss as another fatal blow to the media profession.
Meanwhile, during Tuesday's Book signing, the PUL will accept contributions from journalists and members of the public for the burial and treatment of two other journalists who are terminally ill. Journalists are encouraged to contribute a minimum of US$5.00
