The new head of the Bamenda Metropolitan Archdiocese is bereaved, National Telegraph can confirm. Mgr. Andrew Nkea now heading the Bamenda Archdiocese is still Apostolic Administrator of the Mamfe Diocese where he had just left as Bishop.
National Telegraph has gathered that Christians have been consoling him over the death of one of his reverend sisters. Rev. Sr. Jane Mary Sunjo Diyla died early Wednesday, March 11, 2020, at the Mamfe District Hospital in Cameroon’s Manyu Division, South West of the country.
Sister Sunjo was suffering from Malaria, a source told National Telegraph, adding that her situation became aggravated, Monday, March 9, 2020, when she went into a coma.
She was moved from the Catholic-run St John of God Health Centre Mamfe to the Mamfe District Hospital, Wednesday where she died the same day. Her corpse has been preserved at the Mamfe District Hospital Morgue.
The sister of St John The Evangelist and Immaculate Heart of Mary Congregation of the Diocese of Mamfe, born on June 29, 1987, died at 33.
Sister Sunjo, originally from Bui Division in Cameroon’s North West Region did her first profession on August 22, 2018, at St Anthony of Padua Parish, Mamfe.
She was working in Okoyong, a locality closest to Mamfe, the diocesean headquarters as a catholic primary school teacher before her death. National Telegraph has been hinted her funeral will commence on Saturday, March 28, 2020, at the St. Joseph’s Cathedral Mamfe.
