The news of your passing got to me that fateful day like a veritable thunderbolt. It is unfathomable even as I pen down these few words to come to terms with the news especially as when we recently spoke there was no clue about any threatening ailment on you.
Where do I begin this brief Tribute? Can words adequately describe a spiritual colossus that you are? Akamentso Ndee, you cannot be described in a simple eulogy or tribute. Only a compendium in huge volumes can attempt to acknowledge your accomplishments in the various and varied domains you have trod in service to humanity and to your creator. Suffice it to say that as a sterling servant of the Almighty God your candor and mettle was overwhelming. Any honest person who knew just a little about you would testify that your kindness and compassion for others was unfettered and undiluted. Though undoubtedly imbued with efficiency and effectiveness you remained unassuming and down to earth. You served the PCC with devotion and total commitment human manipulations notwithstanding. Your legacy is eloquent for anyone to see to God's glory and honour. Congratulations for all your sacrifices as Christian, elder, instructor and adviser in the PCC.
Your performance as the principal Translator and Interpreter for decades at the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon will always remain indelible on people's minds.
Back in Pinyin your village you contributed enormously in the creation of the Development outfit which has transformed the lives of your people. Kudos.
As regards your social life you were a thorough mixer. You rejected class and dined and wined all within the social strata. I truly appreciate your demeanor.
On the family front, you were impeccable, challenges of life notwithstanding. The love and concern for your family was so eloquent. You left behind four beautiful, intelligent, responsible, dynamic, and spiritually molded children. You equally left behind a lovely wife who would certainly continue to bond and guide the children. I cannot forget to mention your sons and daughters-in-law who are diligently taking care of your grand chicken. Who says your life was not accomplished and fulfilled? This gives me reason to aver that your place is certainly in heaven. This is my prayer.
On your political front, I cannot dare any opinion as I have been apolitical all my life. I can only conjecture that as a Christian politician you took on board spiritual and moral values in your trappings. Glory to God. Your passing has definitely created a huge void which only God can fill. You were an asset holistically. You ran the Race, fought a good Fight, and kept the Faith. You deserve a rest though we will miss you forever.
The entire Halle family via my humble self-assured the enlarged Tening Mongwa family that we totally share in the bereavement of this great loss gracefully sends our thoughts and prayers to the bereaved. Take heart and keep the faith.
Finally, Go well Pa and intercede for us as we face the challenges of a sin-sick world where there is everything but Love and Justice. RIPP Akamentso Ndee. Adieu
