I was a classmate of Kenjo a undergraduate in Yaounde, and during Postgraduate studies i Leeds UK. I worked together with Kenjo in Bafia(1973)Bafia High school sharing a room. Our sons attended same nursery school Bamenda up-station and we alternated carrying them to school from down-town. "Death is not extiguishing the light, it is only putting out the light because the dawn has come." R. Tacure
Dear Kenjo rest in God's eternal peace.

Dear Martin: I received with grief and sorrow the sad news of the death of your beloved brother, Kenjo wan Jumbam. I write, with all humility, to convey my heartfelt sympathy and profound condolence to you and your family.

Your brother's demise is undoubtedly a great loss to the entire family. However, I urge you to take solace in the fact that the years he spent on earth were eventful and memorable. God will surely reward him for the services he has rendered to God's people.

I also pray that the merciful God will give you and the entire family the fortitude to bear this great loss. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

THE PASSING AWAY OF A GREAT FRIEND

That you will be sick and i will not know!
That you will pass away without me visiting you!
That you will be buried in my absence!
Have you carried away your usual simplicity?
Who will continue to teach us HUMILITY and SIMPLICITY?
Pa Kenjo Jumbam, is that how our Great friend passes
away?
It is a dream to know that you are dead
It is a dream to know that i will see you no more
It is a dream for you to be buried when i cannot be
present
My only hope, my only hope
Is that the Lord takes you to HIS CELESTIAL KINGDOM
HIS CELESTIAL KINGDOM
> From where you will guide and guard all these children
Pa Kenjo, bye-bye and see you when my day comes
May our friendship last forever from wherever we are
While you are there, we shall pray from here.
GO IN THE LORD

Pa Kenjo was a source of inspiration for me and was instrumental in the founding of the Children's Rights Group International here in Germany.

Pa Kenjo helped me to be self-educated, putting at my disposal his private library and even hosting me in his house so I could have limitless access to his books. This shows the trust he had for mankind. I am not the first person who has seen Christ's love in Pa Kenjo. He showed his love for Christ and for the Catholic faith in his open letter to Christians in which he openly asked for forgiveness from anyone he had ever offended. Only a man of integrity, like Pa Kenjo, would have the audacity to say "I'm sorry, forgive me!"

I thank Pa Kenjo from the bottom of my heart for all his teachings and numerous pieces of advice he always gave me. I feel really sad that he's gone. As he takes his place on a seat next to Christ, the Saviour, may he continue to intercede for us. Amen.

It pains me profoundly that I'll never meet him in this world again.

I just learned by surfing the web of the passing on of one of the greatest writers and i just wanted to extend my condolence to the family though it is about 2yrs old.
Kenjo Jumbam gave me my passion for reading and i hope that many young Cameroonians also get the chance to appreciate his work.

Infact, an artist dies but his work remains!.Thus,i believe we can still hear the whispers of Jumbam's voice!!
