Tribute to Mangoh Jones Tanko

By Sajoh Amidu Yerima, SDF District Secretary/ Mangoh's Political Adviser

RIP Mangoh Jones
Mangoh Jones Tanko, your sudden exit from this planet has created a void in the minds of thousands of Social Democrats and freedom fighters. The dignity and hopes of the people found expression in your life. Your relentless fight for democracy, justice and development is and will forever be your cherished legacy. A giant of history you were for this Division and are very proud of you as such.
In the arc of your life, we saw a man who earned a place in the history pages of Donga Mantung in particular and Cameroon as a Nation through your struggle and shrewdness, and persistence and faith. Like other democrats you disciplined your thoughts and channeled your desire to fight tyranny under the banner of the SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC FRONT. You have always cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and equal opportunities. During the 1992 presidential elections campaigns you said ‘ it is an ideal which I will fight for as long as I live and I am ready to die for………’.
 When people see goodness in a person, they reciprocate and all I can now say is two simple words.
Thank you
