Cameroon’s Former Public Health Minister, Charles Boromé Etoundi Tabi has passed away. The former political figure died yesterday Thursday, in Yaoundé, Centre region of Cameroon following an illness.
“He was a great clerk of the State, he left the business for some time, but he always kept the line of a high official”, said one of his relatives.
Apart from being the former Minister of Health in 1997, and the former Minister of State in charge of National Education, Patriarch Mvog Ada was also the principal at the Lycée Général Leclerc in Yaoundé.

“I bow to the memory of Minister of State Charles Etoundi, former Minister of Health, who died this morning at the Yaoundé General Hospital. Cameroon loses in him a great Statesman,” he wrote.
He graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Yaoundé in 1968.
