The 60years old woman was militant of President Paul Biya’s ruling CPDM party and mayor of Bangou in the West Region of Cameroon.

The first lady, Chantal Biya on Thursday through her facebook page regretted that nothing can replace her mum. 

"May your soul rest in peace Mum. Nothing can ever replace you.", said the bereaved first lady.
Like his wife, President Paul Biya on Friday said he  regrets to  make the announcement.
 “With deep regrets, I announce the death of Madam MBOUTCHOUANG nee NDONGO MENGOLO Rosette Marie, mother of my wife Madam Chantal BIYA, the First Lady of Cameroon”, Mr. Biya wrote on his facebook page.

The post about the mother’s dead came several months after the first lady has been silent on the social media. Her last post before her mother’s dead was in April 2014.

Beside the message, the first lady also posted a photo of her Mum, taken last January during the news wishes presentation at the unity palace.
