Two years after, the family of decease are still waiting for the much trumpeted Government assistance. The numerous promises made on the spot by some Government officials haven't materialized as was expected. How can vague promises made by lies telling ministers of a rogue regime ever materialize. " We have been dejected and abandoned by authorities of the state of Cameroon. After the decease of Monique Koumatekel, there were many of such Government officials who were coming to see us. The Senior Divisional Officer, the Governor... They were many that came to see, comfort and console us.
They promised to assist us in whatever way possible. " This complaint is that of Sen Annette Plastide, the mother of Monique Koumatekel, who died on the 12 of March,2016, when she was pregnant with twins. She was left unattended by the medical staff of Laquintinie Hospital of Douala. Her friend Tacke Rose out of sympathy decided to do the operation herself in order to at least rescue the unborn twins. " once this incident happened, it attracted a lot of high personalities within the nation, foreigners,the press,,representative of Political parties and others, who came to give their support for the family members of young Monique Koumatekel, wishing to have passage to make their promises, which have now turned two years after those vain promises were made.
These promises have never been fulfilled. The family once more deplores the insensitive nature of the government immediately after the burial was competed" " The Government was solely responsible for the mortuary fee and the cost of burial needs such as the coffin and the hearse. Thereafter the government went comatose. After the burial of my daughter, they have never come back to see us. Not even to know how the family was fairing" regretted the mother of the decease. The father of three kids that were left behind by Monique Koumatekel according to him, confided that" A lawyer came demanding that a bank account be opened so that money contributed by the philanthropist could be saved.
This money could be used for the upkeep of the children and that he was going to be a share holder. This account wasn't functional as reported by Nouvelle Of the 12th of March 2018. Fortunately, some good persons with good will have always been supporting the family of the deceased Monique Koumatekel . For instance a association established in Italy is taking care of the children and pays their fees each year and their school needs.
