This gunshot practice should be abandoned by us Northwesteners. It is a tradition that seems to have a gone a long way to kill innocent lives. In the recent funeral of my father, my maternal relatives from Manyu were telling me of several people who have been killed by innocent gun shots. The earlier we abandon this practice, the better.

Or people should be required to use only blanks at funerals, cartridges with powder, but no projectiles and no more "accidents" should become crimes.

IF TRADITION CAN AND SHOULD BE MODERNISED THEN WE NEED TO CALL IT AN END DAN GUN FIRING @ FUNERALS IN THE GRASSFIELD, UNLESS IT'S AN EXPERIENCE TO TASTE HOW ONE LOSES HIS/HER LIFE!!!!

Rest in Peace Our Beloveth Pa Muma.What a great lost to us.Your gentility ,soft spoken and fatherliness will be remembered and from your way of life while with us,there is no doubt that you are with Our Almighty.The pains and grieving is much but the family should take heart and the Nsongwa community home and abroad should equally take heart .Brother Valley,take heart.REST IN PEACE .

This is a tradition that takes the lifes of innocent people.I guess even without drunkeness the gunner must have used this situation to capitalise his selfish aims.I don't think a drunk can attempt to commit suicide after his dreadful action.If he is drunk I hope his eyes will only clear after he is given his rightful jail term for murder.He can only be bailed if he has got grounds like Fon Doh.Or being a staunch CPDM member in La Republique.

I am very shocked and aggrieved to learn of the death of this beloved teacher and father figure. Pa Muma was my maths teacher in GBHS Bamenda from form 1-5(bet 1990-1995) and his death under such tragic conditions greatly saddens me. I want to take this opportunity to extend ma condolence to his entire family. I pray that the almighty God grant him eternal rest and to the family strength to go through this great loss.
Those making political statements; please this is the wrong forum to make such senseless and heart less comments.

I think it's about time the gun firing ends in the North West. I mean, when people attend funerals, most of them drink a lot as it is free. How could you prevent an accident? Pa Muma was my Math teacher in GBHS Bamenda. Isn't death so cunning? You never know when it knocks at your door. We all better be prepared! Rest in Peace Pa Muma

Paul Muma was a pioneer of Sacred Heart College. A soft spoken and superb footballer with a brilliant mind. May he rest in peace

Pa Muma was a great teacher indeed. I remember his funny jokes in Maths classes in Form 5 GBHS Bamenda and some from Further Maths classes. The Gun firing issue realy needs to be put on hold. What a way to leave the world! That tells us all to be prepared and live each day as our last. You never know when. May you be ready to meet God when the death angel strikes.
Peace,
Ivo T. Louisville. KY, USA.
