Ntansi Isaac Tita, the man who has seen the construction of the Diocese of Kumbo from its seventh year, is no more. He died last Wednesday, June 28, 2006 in the morning. According to his wife, Mr. Ntansi returned home, after work, on Tuesday, June 27 in his normal health and dined with the family, as usual, before retiring to bed.

She discovered later in the night that he had difficulties breathing, and he was immediately rushed to the St. Elizabeth Catholic Mission Hospital Shisong, where he died in the early hours of Wednesday 28th June; memoria of St. Irenaeus, Bishop and martyr.
For the last 17 years, Mr. Ntansi has supervised the construction of almost all the structures in the Diocese of Kumbo. Amongst the structures he began and completed are the Bishop's House, John Paul II Diocesan Youth Centre, Tobin, St. Rita's College Nkambe, St. Aloysius Minor Seminary Kitiwum, the magnificent church at Binju-Nkambe, the presbytery and hall at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Mission, Ndu, the presbytery in St. Michael's Catholic Mission, Meluf, the Holy Family Health Centre Tabenken, the St. Kizito Health Centre and St. Therese Women Centre, Sabongari, the St. Jerome Pastoral Centre Kumbo etc.
Some of the big structures he was still supervising include the presbyteries in Tobin, Ngondzen, Ngarum, John Paul II Youth Centre and the Church of Misaje. Mr. Ntansi has left behind two wives, Elizabeth Fri and Victorine Kinyuy, seven children, a sister, friends, relatives and co-workers to mourn him.
He was buried on Saturday 1st July in his native village of Bali after a funeral service at the Presbyterian Church Njenka, Bali. The Curia and faithful of the Diocese of Kumbo extend heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.
