Reactions from a cross section of citizens
The Monique tragedy is a vivid picture of how rotten the health system of Cameroon has become. The other day over radio I heard patients of a dialysis hospital in Buea complaining how the hospital uses every opportunity to squeeze them of money but there is hardly water to do dialysis for them. The hospital Director said they lack five million francs to sink a borehole! This is shameful in a country where individuals are squandering and bleeding the nation of its wealth. Protest against corruption amongst Medical doctors and nurses is a war that must be fought at all fronts! That is why we do not hesitate to dismiss nurses and doctors who indulge in malpractices in our health institutions of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC). The axe is sharpened, ready to fell down any tree that is a disgrace to the system! Let justice be done for Monique; and that will be for all who have lost their lives under similar circumstances across this triangle. Once in Yaounde somebody involved in a motor accident was forced into the mortuary half dead. He gained consciousness, crawled to the door, struggled until finally gave up the ghost! Where has human conscience gone to? Rev. BABILA FONCHANG.
I can't believe what happened in Cameroon. How can doctors refuse to attend to a pregnant woman at Laquintenie and watch her being operated upon with a razor blade by a family member. While waiting for a statement from the government vuvuzela I am really speechless. This should not happen to my country. To imagine the pain some pregnant women face in the hands of midwives some of whom are women. U get statements like "push fast" "was I there when you were doing it. " etc. Unbelievable.
SHE WHO IS OUT TO BRING TO or GIVE LIFE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO LOOSE HER LIFE.
My mind runs with some questions surrounding the death of 31yrs old late Koumate Monique who should have been bearing MANYI but is rather bearing LATE.
Some of these questions are contrary to many opinions. Many times some men make their errors and expect fellow man to sacrifice his or her life to repair. So did she fail to follow some basic principles of life which have led to this?
Throwing blame of her death on the medical core does not exactly explain...
- She didn't do anti-natal clinic follow-ups.
- She attempted delivery at home by her relation.
In as much as I recognise some negligence in our hospitals, much more is self negligence by individuals who take their health for granted. Patients' ignorance n negligence kill far more than errors of hospitals.
PLEASE, before you draw conclusions, be objective n realistic. Let the law investigate in its expertise n tell us where the fault came n who needs correction. ELAN Julius Theodore
I think we all followed the minister's press conference and I believed the medical corps is absolved from any accusations of negligence. PLEASE LET'S TAKE OUR HEALTH SERIOUSLY AND STOP LOOKING FOR WHOM TO BLAME. Ensah Bertrand
Poverty should not lead to death. Calling on justice for Monique Koumate who died after receiving no medical attention because of poverty. Her niece desperately slit her stomach open to rescue the twins who were still visibly active in the womb. One came out alive and died a few minutes later, while the other came out dead. We pay taxes to subsidize a lot including health care. Monique did not have to die; even her her babies in front of La Quantine hospital Douala.

SPREAD THE MESSAGE IF YOU WANT THE DIRECTOR AT LAQUINTINIE SACKED ALONG SIDE OTHER NURSES ON DUTY.It is reported that this poor lady was rushed to the hospital in Douala and because of lack of money, the doctors and nurses refused attending to her. She was forced out of the hospital. Seeing that she was about given up the ghost, her sister used razor blade on her, tore open her womb and delivered a set of twins. The twins died hours later joining their mum. Prince Nfor Hanson.
Health Minister Debunks Protest Claims...
The minister of public health, Andre Mama Fouda, has refuted popular claims Monique Koumate died out of negligence from medics at the Laquintinie hospital in Douala.
Speaking this evening during a press conference in his ministry to address issues relating to the dead of the 31years old woman and her 7 months babies, the minister indicated the woman had already died before she was brought to the hospital.
He went further in saying it is medically ethical not to conduct operation on a dead woman indicting the actions of the niece of the decease.
This now gives a great indication, the director and medics at laquintinie hospital will be spelt from any prosecution while on the other, the niece of Monique presently under custody could be prosecuted.
