A rumour that spread widely on Wednesday night in Yaounde, the nation’s capital, announced the death of Gregoire Owona, the Minister of Labour and Social Insurance.
The rumour invaded the social networks but was denied by some close collaborators of the minister who also moonlights as the assistant secretary general of the central committee of the ruling CPDM party.
Minister Gregoire reportedly attended a meeting of the ruling party late on Wednesday evening. Cameroon Concord News understands, the minister’s health has been failing recently. He was in France of late for medical reasons and has drastically reduced his public appearances.
