It is with sadness that MTN Cameroon confirms the death of one of its employees, who passed away at the Douala General Hospital on 30th March 2020, following a short illness.

The exact cause of his illness is not yet known. However, given the current extent of the health crisis we are facing, COVID-19 tests were conducted but not concluded at the time of his death. The hospital recommended an immediate burial as a precautionary measure and we can confirm that the deceased was not in contact with colleagues, customers or partners of the company at the time.

The health and wellbeing of our employees, their loved ones, our customers and business partners remains a key priority for MTN. Most of our employees have been working from home over the last few weeks as a precautionary measure to flatten the curve.

MTN would like to express its condolences to the family and loved ones and requests that the privacy of the family be respected at this difficult time.
