Nice valediction, Shey!

Ndim Bernard Ngouche

Bravo Shey. If every African and Cameroonian had this lofty mentality of creating space for the younger generation; what a wonderful continent we would have had. I have read with a lot of satisfaction after learning that you are leaving behind a corporation in good health despite the fact that we live in a Country packed full of torn coats whose financial conscience have died. Your leaving sets a precedence and stamps your name in gold on the annals of the company's history. Life is in constant motion and needs newer task and duties so as to fight monotony and boredom.I wish you all the best as you now concentrate on the American Langauge Centre which your wife and you do run. May God keep blessing you and your entire family.

Mr. Jumbam,

My deepest respects and admiration to you. You are the type of leaders we need back home. You've done your part and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. I hope your successors continue to pay their workers on time, refuse bribery as a means of business and encourage our younger generation BY EXAMPLE. We have too much of the opposite in Cameroon that people have lost a sense of moral compass.

God Bless you sir!

Dear Shu Tav,
Your interview gave me an insight of a biblical allusion where christ said that he had ended his work and was going back to his father...I must hail you for this challenge that will go a long way to educate and transform our country...You have ended your job and you are going back to your family...One thing some of us do not know is that we go after money and earthly things and forget the base...the family...i wish i could live a life non regrettable like yours...I see you going with a clean sheet something only people like you and Fonlon will do...Today you have gone to history and i am sure his Emenence though maybe sad that you left but he is at the same time happy that you fulfilled your mission...You have now proven that you did not work there as a tribe man but for the sake and the good of the country...Teach me your secrets...only a "stupid" man will go without learning from you...Congrats from this part of the world...Wo scandi

Mr Jumbam
I am happy to read your interview. I am proud of you for you have taught by example. Your devotedness in serving our nation and the world is a landmark you have left for the present and future generation. We have much to learn from you especially the need for a rest and for change. There is a reward for every good work done. You should feel an internal satisfaction and I am sure this is what is manifested in the interview. How I wish I could give this kind of balance account in the future.
Wishing you the best of life as you concentrate on your family.
Emmanuel

"In my case, I believe I’ve run a good race and can now hand the baton to someone else."

Thank you very much for sentence. It has touched me. If such a sentence was applicable in the public service in Cameroon, the country would not have been in the deplorable state in which it is today. Inertia everywhere. Ahidjo ruled for 25 years, Biya has broken the record already, civil servants "work" right up to their graves.
Congratulations Mr Jumbam. You did your best to serve us. God bless you.

Tobias Ndze Wongbi

Shu Tav,

Your successful tenure of the high office of General Manager of MACACOS during the last four years has further proved that the personal integrity of a person in such a position of responsibility is as important, if not, more important, than that person's specific training for the job. Many people whose field is to be found in the Management Sciences will not do this well. Continue to preach by example.

Congratulations.

Tobias Ndze Wongbi.

Bushu Emmanuel Berinyuy

Dear Sir,
Reading through this interview left me with two points to take along:knowing when to say "enough" and integrity. The face of Africa would for ever be bright should a hundred of such minds be found in her. God mightily bless you Sir, as you take your leave.
Emmanuel

congratulations mr Jumbam. i also wish to use this opportunity to say thanks for the good work done over the Radio Veritas 6.30am sunday meditation program. handing over while capable of active service is praise-worthy. only, be disposed to humbly assist 'ex-officio' the need surfaces for the older broom that best knows the corners of the house.

Harry Yemti

What else can i say.Congratulations senior.And wish you well in your new endeavors. You are a perfect example of the kind of people we need in Cameroon.Hope some of us out here would be able to copy your good example.And that you would be able to be facilitating our CAMASEJ workshops.

Willie Nkwain Ngamfon

Martin Jumbam is very exceptional and has always been exemplary and a model to me. I've had very nostalgic interactions with Jumbam both at SHC and at Radio Veritas. I was around when he took over MACACOS and I knew he will make it.
If good people are praiseworthy, Martin Jumbam deserves it.
Bueno!!

'I was out to protect the assets of the company and that is what I think I did, to the best of my ability'

This is the element most if not all Africans lack. We have lost great national and continental heritage to the 'I don't care attitude.' Tav has proven his sense of duty and respect for the future of humanity. I am challenged and I think we all are challenged to think of our future and the heritage we meet, use and leave behind. Have a pleasant rest and give the best of comfort to your wife.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself - nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.
