The erstwhile Youth President of the CPDM Meme I, John Kingue, died in a road accident that occurred around Ekona along the Kumba-Buea highway, Fako Division, in early hours of Wednesday, June 14.
Kingue was in his Carina E vehicle alongside his driver who is also reported dead. Their car collided with a 19 seater bus that moved out of its lane, in an attempt to avoid hitting a bike rider. The result was a head-on collision between the two vehicles.
Kingue was last seen in public on Tuesday, June 13 at the Kumba District Hospital following the death of an eight-year old girl run over by the convoy of Basic Education Minister.
Late Kingue was one of five CPDM councillors on the Kumba I Council board.
His political fame came to an end during the last CPDM reorganisation that ushered in a new team at the helm of the Meme 1A Section.
The new age limit of the party for the youth wing blocked him from vying for another mandate.
