Medical sources at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris have revealed that everything went well with our Rigo. The former Cameroon international was evacuated on Tuesday to France and we understand the three aneurysms, including haemorrhagic were successfully repaired and Captain Rigobert Song still remains under observation.
Hospitalized in Yaoundé, after suffering from a stroke, Rigobert Song left his homeland for the French capital Paris. Public Health Minister, Andre Mama Fouda, attempted to politicize Song’s health situation by claiming that President Biya was directly responsible for all that happened at the Emergency Centre in Yaounde.
Before taking the air ambulance, “Rigo” was able to breathe without using oxygen assistance and cerebral bleeding was controlled. Cameroon does not have adequate technical facilities for this type of care so only those close to the corrupt regime in Yaounde are accorded a kind of government support to facilitate treatment in a European country.
