Farewell Christopher Ndikum

Laying the casket into its final resting place

Laying the casket into its final resting place

It was the final farewell to Christopher Ndikum Munelah, the veteran sport commentator, journalist and station manager who passed away on Saturday April 16, 2016. Present where journalist from across the Northwest region and Cameroon as a whole, politicians, government officials, and friends and family members, friends and sympathizers.

From family members and colleagues, to CPDM party barons, eulogies flew in memory of a man that has inspired many in different ways. We were told to emulate his footsteps so that we can leave behind a legacy like he has. Christopher Ndikum was more than an inspiration to the younger generation. Eric Martial Djomo, president of the Cameroon Association of Sports Journalist (CASJ) journeyed all the way from Douala to pay his homage to a man he has never meet but has heard echoes of his passion. Beside, the regional delegate of Communication, Northwest,  Dr Louis Marie Begne, the station manager of CRTV Bamenda, the CPDM section president for Mezam II, Tumfor Fru Jonathan, and colleagues almost found themselves in tears as they search for words to convey their feelings for the man.

 A passionate sports fan and die hard support of Kumbo Strikers, PWD of Bamenda, Yong Sport Academy and Prison Buea just to name these few, Christopher Ndikum was known by colleagues at time to run commentaries from his heart rather from the head, he will not hesitate to call players, coaches and even team presidents to order if he found out that their choices and decisions were not producing results.

He was a man that makes friends everywhere he goes, leaving his joyful nature behind to keep company to all he met. He left an indelible mark in the life of many. At Ndefcam radio, some colleagues fondly remember “ndikumatics” the expression he always uses to show that there was a corresponding compatibility between two persons.

The former CRTV Bamenda and Buea worker leaves behind a big family to mourn him, his mum, brothers and sisters and a huge fan base.
Adieu “grand Frere” you will forever remain in our hearts.
