The Minister of Public Health Manaouda Malachie has extended his condolences to the family of Dr Richard Valery Mouzoko, killed on Friday April 19, 2019 during an attack by rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

DR Congo is reported to have witnessed two separate attacks on Thursday and Friday, targeting the hospital in the city of Butembo, one of the locations where the ebola epidemic is said to be spreading at its fastest rate.

WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus confirmed by a tweet that Dr Valery Moukozo had died during the attack, and others had been injured.

Some Cameroonians are reported to have appreciated the Public Health boss’ concern about the matter and some other cases which have a link with his Ministry.

The most recent case before that of the bereaved Doctor been his prompt reaction to the Deido District Hospital incident that happened in Douala.
