    Background: After a drastic Cabinet reshuffle by President Ahmadou Ahidjo on Friday (June 12), in which seven Ministers lost their posts and nine new ones were appointed, Mr. Delphine Tsanga became Cameroun's first woman Minister.

    Mrs. Tsanga is a National Assembly member from east Cameroun and the President of the Women's Organisation of the Cameroun National Union (OFUNC). She becomes the new Deputy Health Minister.

    On Sunday, two days after her appointment was announced, militant members of the Women's Organisation of the Cameroun National Union gathered in front of the Presidential palace to express their happiness at her appointment. Mrs. Ahidjo, the President's wife and Mrs. Tsanga -- who is 30 years old and the mother of 6 children -- walked among the crowds of dancers assembled in front of the palace.
