Woman Accused Of ‘Eating’ Dead Son’s Flesh 

By Francis Tim Mbom

A woman, Joan Efeti, on Friday, August 20 got into a brawl with ex-husband, Edward Namata Ewanga, at the Limbe Regional Hospital mortuary after she was accused of carving and eating some parts of her dead son.

Ewanga and wife, accompanied by other relations and sympathizers were at the mortuary to remove the corpse of their late Peter Ewanga, 28, who died on August 5 from electrocution.
According to hospital officials, Efeti asked the mortuary attendant to allow her shave her son’s hair to keep as memento.

When Namata arrived at the mortuary, the attendant told him that his wife was already inside the mortuary. Thus, furious, Namata joined his ex-wife in the mortuary where he and the attendant reportedly caught the woman ‘eating’ the parts of her son’s corpse.After the incident, eyewitnesses told The Post that Namata and his wife emerged from the mortuary with Namata accusing Efeti of having shaved hairs off the head of the dead son and stuffed in her mouth.

Namata’s effort to force his wife to spit out the hairs turned into a scuffle. When some journalists accosted Efeti, she refused commenting. Sources said she probably had no evil intentions with the hairs but wanted to use them to pre-empt a situation. The Post gathered that the family has lost some of their relations in the past through mysterious circumstances.

Efeti followed the corpse to the Presbyterian Church in Middle Farms where a requiem mass was said for the deceased son. She is said to have partaken in every aspect of the mass including the reception of "Holy Communion." The remains of the late Peter were laid to rest on Saturday, August 21, at the New Town Cemetery in Limbe.
