Albert Mukong

Albert Mukong was born in Babanki Tungo in 1933 and attended St. Joseph’s College Sasse, Buea. Apart from being a direct election opponent in the 1950s and1960s of the late John Ngu Foncha – former Prime Minister and Vice-President of Cameroon –, Mukong participated in talks leading to Cameroon’s independence at the United Nations in New York. As Secretary General of the One Kamerun party led by Nde Ntumanzah, Mukong was in direct alliance with the Francophone Cameroon’s UPC of Un Nyobe and Ouandie – President Ahidjo’s main opposition. He may have died of indignity, but he never relented seeking human dignity for all and sundry.
