The former Minister of Finance and Agriculture fell on stairs at his residence in Washington on Wednesday evening.
Essimi Menye is in bad shape. He is currently in intensive care in a hospital in Washington in the United States. According echosducameroun.com, a site that reports this information, since Wednesday evening and the whole day of Thursday, hospital staff continues to march to and fro the hospital bed of the former member of the Cameroon government.
The incident that led to his hospitalization was disclosed by a family member: “The father actually fell from stairs last night, after he returned from work. After that, he could not get up by himself. We immediately transported him to the hospital where he stayed there until now. Doctors say they will resume the surgery of the spine. In fact, he did not rest enough. After his previous surgery, he started working with high intensity even though he still showed some signs of fatigue. It’s sad! “, one reads.
Before the accident, Essimi Menye had toured several African countries, as a member of the delegation of the IMF and the World Bank, a position he held since leaving Cameroon earlier this year as an expert.
Sacked from the Cameroonian Government on 2 October 2015, Essimi Menye was suspected of mismanagement. He later received a medical evacuation without funding, granted by President Paul Biya after a month of hospitalization at the hospital of the National Social Insurance Fund in Yaounde.
