Hon. SN Tamfu is Dead, Donga Mantung in Tears

Hon SN Tamfu the true born soldier/ hero
Hon. Samuel Ngeh Tamfu one of the most cherished Anglophone career politician is no more. Former CPDM MP for Nkambe and Politburo member passed died at the Yaounde Reference Hospital last, March 28, 2012. News of his passing away has set many wondering whether his vision of the Far North West Region will not disappear as well. Those who looked to him as a role model say he was  " great leader whose dream to foster development efforts and advocate for a one and indivisible Cameroon will continue to inspire many youths”. A school of thought holds that Hon. Tamfu's greatness as a  politician could be seen through the lense of the ruling CPDM when 1996, he used the standing orders of the National Assembly to rescue the Biya Regime from collapsing. To a majority of the people of Donga Mantung Division and Northwest Region at large, Hon. Tamfu savoir faire in politics commands a lot of respect. To this historians hold that History cannot be largely explained without his name being mentioned. Hon. SN Tamfu was highly an influential individual who, due to his personal charisma, intelligence and wisdom, he utilized his position in a way that created a decisive historical impact every now and then he took to the rostrum to talk on burning issues. When Carlyle commented that "The history of the world is but the biography of great men", he was talking of the likes of Hon. SN Tamfu. Many CPDM militants are of the opinion that his demise will leave a vacuum in the Northwest Region. Sources say all his set for Hon. TAMFU to be given a befitting burial as committees have been set up in Yaounde to plan for his burial on April 28, 2012 at Taku. while speculations are rife at that he may be honoured with a state burial, another school holds that Hon. Tamfu will be given an official and not a state burial. It should be noted that as Donga Mantung political encyclopedia, he advocated for the creation of the Far Northwest Region until the last moment of life. To Hon. Tamfu, creating the Far North West Region will bring meaningful development and disenclave Donga Mantung and Bui divisions respectively. As a member of the political bureau of the CPDM, Hon. Tamfu is accredited for making Rt. Hon. Prime Minister. As a politician, he had always stood against those who transform the state treasury into a private entity.
