Joe Ghartey writes

Dombo has passed!! Unbelievable. Dombo’s passing is no doubt a loss to his family but it is also a great loss to the railway sector. The role that the Ghana Railway Development Authority, led by Richard Dombo, played in the development of a new and modern standard gauge railway network over the last four years cannot be over emphasised. What can we say but quote Shakespeare, who reminds us that the world is but a stage, each man having his entry and his exit. Difficult as it may be, we are told by the Good Book that we came from dust and to dust we will return. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. Blessed be his holy name. Richard, till we meet again on the day of resurrection, Rest In Perfect Peace.
