In the interview published by a local French language newspaper, La Nouvelle Expression, she refutes allegations that she does not want the corpse which had been buried in a Muslim graveyard in Darkar, exhumed to Cameroon.
“I have never heard that Biya had granted grace to Ahidjo, because it is he, who sentenced him. He, to whom power was given. Why? He certainly holds a grudge..he must have been jealous.” She stated. Germaine insisted on RFI that her husband’s dignity must be reestablished and that his body must be officially brought back to Cameroon in the honour it deserves
May her soul rest in peace
