Cameroon: Literary icon Oyono Mbia passes away

Cameroonian dramatist and writer Guillaume Oyono Mbia passed away on Saturday, April 10 in Yaounde at the age of 82.

He died at a clinic in the Ekounou neighbourhood in Yaounde after battling with a brief illness.

He was one of the few bilingual writers and dramatist Cameroon could boast of and was famous for his book “Three Suitors…One Husband”, published in 1962.

He also published books like Until Further Notice (1967), Notre fille ne se mariera pas! (1969; “Our Daughter Will Not Marry!”), and His Excellency’s Train (1969), all written on his favourite theme of youth versus adult, modernity versus tradition.
