Prof. Jacob Plange-Rhule

Tribute from Mike Mensah Family

Michael K. Mensah (Uncle Mike)

TRIBUTE FROM THE MIKE MENSAH FAMILY

Who can say to him, “what are you doing?” He is God and he does not relent – Job 9 v12

So therefore;

The bible says in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God. But my heart still bleeds with sorrow.

Paa Kwamena not even a “funeral note” to prepare us for what was coming?

Acquaintance of over fifty years is gone ………gone with the winds just like that?

I have known Professor Dr. Jacob Plange – Rhule for more than fifty years when we all started growing up at South Odorkor. It was a newly developing area, long before the South Odorkor Estates was developed and Dr. K. A Busia came to open up the place with his residence

The young men of different age category played table tennis at the Abeka – Lewis home. Paa Kwamena as he was affectionately called was in that group but in the bottom rung in terms of age and educational status then; but he gelled with everyone. He was humble and hard working.

Till his demise on Good Friday, he never called me by my first name. He has always referred to me as uncle Mike. He was the last person to inherit my science text books when he gained admission to do his A/L in the biological sciences.

Paa Kwamena, you did not look back. You made great strides academically and professionally to make those of us who knew your humble beginnings proud. You were always quick to tell your friends, (to my irritation) in any gathering, “if I am a doctor today, it’s the encouragement of uncle Mike”.

If I encouraged you, you did same to my last daughter. Only last November 2019, you perfectly presided over their induction into the roll of Physicians and Surgeons. We took pictures and I took one with you (which must still be with the unknown photographer).

A day (31st March) after the imposition of the lock down I whatsApped you.

And it went like this: “Paa Kwamena, good morning and hope all is well with you and the family. We are keeping well. Have a blessed day in this trying time.” 11.41am

He replied an hour later: good afternoon Uncle Mike. Thank you for checking up on us. we are doing well. Please look after yourselves too. Stay home and be safe. 12.43

Then I replied: okay oooooooo bye

Then in reply he “thumbed up”

To hear of your demise, I don’t want to use the word “death” is still a shock to me. But who am I to question God?

I pray for the repose of your soul. No one is perfect and I therefore pray God in his infinite mercy to wash you clean and give you a restful place in his bosom.

REST IN PERFECT PEACE

Till his demise on Good Friday, he never called me by my first name. He has always referred to me as uncle Mike. He was the last person to inherit my science text books when he gained admission to do his A/L in the biological sciences.

Paa Kwamena, you did not look back. You made great strides academically and professionally to make those of us who knew your humble beginnings proud. You were always quick to tell your friends, (to my irritation) in any gathering, “if I am a doctor today, it’s the encouragement of uncle Mike”.

If I encouraged you, you did same to my last daughter. Only last November 2019, you perfectly presided over their induction into the roll of Physicians and Surgeons. We took pictures and I took one with you (which must still be with the unknown photographer).

A day (31st March) after the imposition of the lock down I whatsApped you.

And it went like this: “Paa Kwamena, good morning and hope all is well with you and the family. We are keeping well. Have a blessed day in this trying time.” 11.41am

He replied an hour later: good afternoon Uncle Mike. Thank you for checking up on us. we are doing well. Please look after yourselves too. Stay home and be safe. 12.43

Then I replied: okay oooooooo bye

Then in reply he “thumbed up”

To hear of your demise, I don’t want to use the word “death” is still a shock to me. But who am I to question God?

I pray for the repose of your soul. No one is perfect and I therefore pray God in his infinite mercy to wash you clean and give you a restful place in his bosom.

REST IN PERFECT PEACE

Who can say to him, “what are you doing?” He is God and he does not relent – Job 9 v12

So therefore;

The bible says in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God. But my heart still bleeds with sorrow.

Paa Kwamena not even a “funeral note” to prepare us for what was coming?

Acquaintance of over fifty years is gone ………gone with the winds just like that?

I have known Professor Dr. Jacob Plange – Rhule for more than fifty years when we all started growing up at South Odorkor. It was a newly developing area, long before the South Odorkor Estates was developed and Dr. K. A Busia came to open up the place with his residence

The young men of different age category played table tennis at the Abeka – Lewis home. Paa Kwamena as he was affectionately called was in that group but in the bottom rung in terms of age and educational status then; but he gelled with everyone. He was humble and hard working.
