Viewed as the most popular journalist in Cameroon who defended the natural right of liberty, justice and pursuit of happiness of all Cameroonians. He denounced the abuse of human rights and vehemently stood against the marginalization the minority.

Died on July 12th 2010, on I-664 in Virginia, Mr. Njawe had never thought Cameroon was a divided nation. For the past three weeks, all Cameroonians in the Washington metro area had been planning to give Mr. Njawe a befitting farewell. In all Cameroonian social places, Restaurant Bongamis and Kitchen Near You for example, had flyers of the Mr. Njawe’s wake keeping event all over. Originally slated at a high school in Springdale, MD the wake keeping of Pius Njawe was later changed to a DC location.

A change of location infuriated the Anglophone Community who are used to the MD locations. Their main problem was that of parking. Inspike of the presence of most Anglophone journalists (les anciens cadre de la CRTV) like Eric Chinje, Adamo Musa, Boh Yusembom Herbert and Julius Wamey, their presence could not influence the influx of the Anglophone Community. The Question now is, "what went wrong that the Anglophone Community in the Washington Metro Area massively decided not to attend the wake keeping of such a hero?"


It will be a nice thing to congratulate the Cameroonian Embassy through its boss Ambassador Foe Atangana for representing the Cameroon Gov’t through his special envoy considering the fact that Mr. Pius Njawe was a fierce opponent of the Cameroon Gov’t in his 35 years of Journalistic practice.

REST IN PEACE MR NJAWE. We will for ever miss you.
