Yaah Patience Tamfu: The Woman Emancipator

Yaah Patience Tamfu
 If there is any area in Cameroon where the Beijing platform can be assessed, it is how women have evolved in the participation of the political and economic sphere which was formerly a no go zone for the woman. Yaah Patience Tamfu  has demonstrated that women in leadership could mean a lot to Cameroon. Ever since this daughter of the great statesman, late Hon. SN Tamfu became the sparkling flicker, the ever first woman to strengthen the CPDM party in the United State of America she became a symbol what women in leadership position are capable of doing. She demystified politics which years ago was hitherto considered reserved only for me. Yaah Patience Tamfu has not only dismantled the male barriers constructed round politics but has more importantly served as a woman emancipator in the USA and Cameroon. And that she is the WCPDM President in the USA is a fact and that evidences are rife that she campaigned tirelessly for President Biya to win in Diasporas during the last Presidential elections.
Since her election into the national Bureau of the CPDM, Yaah Patience Tamfu has helped a great deal in transforming President Biya’s policy of greater ambitions to greater achievements in the Diasporas. Even though she lives in the USA, she remains approachable. She talks and acts with dogged friendliness reasons why she is loved and appreciated by all the young men, elders and young women in Mbumland.
Yet, it is these qualities which incalculably complement her multifarious roles in Mbum land, Donga Mantung Division, North West and Cameroon as a whole. This is so because she is a bulk of talent, intelligent and a woman who lives in every other person’s problem. Hard work and efficiency have continued to be the qualities that define her actions. Whenever you meet her for the first time, you are taken by her mastery of issues.  Take it as arrogance and you are right for this is positive arrogance because she masters issues and happenings within and without her vicinity. Notwithstanding, she has the drive and dedication that defies any facile explanations. Born into the family of late Hon. SN Tamfu, she was brought up in close knit family in the fear of the God. In later life she could not escape to be a workaholic or become a politician par excellence reasons she gets public admiration for doing great things. The Eye Award is not the first to be received by Yaah Patience Tamfu given that Cameroonians based in Atlanta Georgia-USA also nominated her last year and gave her a similar award but theirs was an award for outstanding dedication to serve Women and the Cameroonian community. On the hand Cameroonian women in the USA also gave Yaah Patience an award for Excellence in Leadership in 2010.she was also nominated at her job as a star Employee and was given an Award in recognition of services to patients which exemplify the highest standard of excellence presented by the Administrator of Roland Park place Baltimore Maryland. In 2010 Yaah Patience Tamfu was decorated with the Night of merit medal from Cameroon.
