Another edition of the International women’s day has come and gone.An the Longing for another celebration can still be felt in Kumba.The number of women who turned out to celebrate  the IWD cannot be under emphasised.  This day was celebrated with much enthusiasm, as women of all works of life came out in their numbers to celebrate at the grand stand in Kumba. The ceremony started at 10:00 a.m, under the distinguished patronage of the Senior Divisional Officer for Meme, Mr. David Koulbout Aman.

In this festive mood, one of the celebrants was moved,as  she  boldly moved out of the crowd to stage a popular sound from the famous artist Nguea Laroute (mama Nguea). The women could not conceal their excitement as they all moved to cheer and support their mate.

Thrilling performance by a celebrant staging ” Mama Nguea”.

The screams of the crowd could not be avoided, when the various groups performed, and the cheering exploded at the point when the Zangalawa group came in. Dressed in Military uniforms, with painted faces as real soldiers going to war, and holding plantain stems as their guns, the women matched into the field and danced to the excitement of all who answered present.

The women of Meme, like their counterparts all over the world and Cameroon in particular, had a swell time celebrating the  26th edition of the International Women’s Day, advocating for equality and decent education for the girl child.
