Nelson Mandela International Day will be commemorated in Cameroon.
The Nkafu Policy Institute
at the Denis and Lenora Foretia Foundation is organizing an event to commemorate the 2019 Nelson Mandela International Day in Cameroon under the theme:
Nelson Mandela – A Fighter for Justice and Human Rights
This Event will take place on Wednesday, July 17 2019, from 9am to 1pm at the Muna Foundation in Yaounde, Cameroon.
This year’s Forum comes in a rather critical context of insecurity, as Cameroon, once described as a haven of peace in Africa, has been sinking into a spiral of conflicts. The year’s conference will follow the tradition laid last year by awarding the 2019 Nelson Mandela Memorial Award
to recognize an individual whom by virtue of his/her actions exemplifies the character and commitment to human rights as espoused and practiced by President Mandela.
The Following persons are up for Nomination for the 2019 Nelson Mandela Memorial Award
- Christian Cardinal Tumi
- Achaleke Christian Leke
- Aissa Doumara Ngatansou
- Edith Kah Walla
- Samuel Kleda
