Was 5 years old when this occurred. This brief posting beautifully captures the national mood at the time. Thanks!

Benny Man

Wow! This is one of the most simple and effective Cameroon Tribune Frontpages ever; not "the mother of the nation is dead" or "the nation mourns the special one", etc., just a simple "madam is dead." I didn't particularly care about her but I feel the weight of those words 20 years later.

Ferdinant Sonyuy

This is really meaningful. I should have been three by then. I don't know how my parents felt but i feel i need to have written on the condolence register as well. She surely was a great woman and the nation love her even till date. The truth shall still be known even in heaven. Let the nation grow.

Well, for me, I pity the citizens of la republique du Cameroun for accepting to be ruled by dictators, murderers, political terrorists and bloodsucking vampires for well over 30 years and counting.

"she was kind,humble and loving to all her family, and to children as we saw. Irene was a mother a real mother". this is an extract of a song composed by one time president of FATRADANCA Buea, Pa Samuel N. Molua, for the fallen first lady.
