Late Prof. Tazaocha Asonganyi a father of four – two boys and two girls, was last weekend laid to rest in his native Menji in Lebialem division.

The revered social critic and erstwhile Secretary General of the Social Democratic Front, who died in Yaounde on Sunday July 3, after battling with a cancer infection, was buried on Saturday July 23.
A crowd of tearful mourners had earlier turned out at the Yaounde General Hospital Mortuary on Friday July 22 during the corpse removal. Last respects were paid to the imminent professor there before his corpse was transferred to the Amphi 700 of the University of Yaounde for academic honours.

It should be noted that Prof. Asonganyi died when all was almost complete for him to be evacuated abroad for medical attention.
