Bouddih Adams recalled that his late boss was fun to be with, “We will always have heated exchanges on the use of a word, the use of a phrase, whether a story is balance, can it invite litigation? Is it the right of the public to know? etc. We will argue, disagreed to agree. When he sees that the spirits are down, he will wipe them up. His demise is a devastating blow to me,” he lamented. CRTV’s Snowsel Ano-Ebie while indicating of how Pa Wache inspired them in journalism stated that it is time they demonstrate that his pains have not gone in vain.
