Limbe City Mayor, Mr. Motanga is No More

Limbe the town of friendship is in pains and shock following the death of its city mayor, Motanga Andrew Monjimba. Motanga quit the stage on Wednesday, January 5 at the Douala Reference hospital after a protracted illness.

A pioneer in three offices he was the first mayor of the Limbe II subdivisional council in Mokundange in 2007, he was appointed pioneer government delegate to the Limbe city council in February 2009. He served in that capacity till 2020 when he was elected first city mayor. A political colossus Motanga bestrode the political terrain in Limbe and Fako. He was section president from 2002 until his death. He was impregnable politically and a progressive municipal magistrate. He made the CPDM turn Limbe from an opposition hotbed to a CPDM stronghold. His legacies as government delegate are immense. Limbe FESTAC the reference arts n culture festival was his imprint. He transformed Limbe infrastructurally and socially. Under him Limbe upgraded its status of cleanest city in the country. How he succeeded in keeping Limbe a safe haven from the ongoing unrest that has ravaged the North West and South West is anyone's guess. A humbe and social mixer Motanga was a delight to encounter and interact. He was an exceptional politician. He will be sorely missed
