Senegal Ambassador: Cameroon Sends Condolences to Killed Diplomat

''Vincent Badji died at his residence in the Bastos district while watching the TV,'' Cameroon state broadcaster, CRTV, tweeted. 

Two weeks ago, Badji announced at a farewell dinner that he had been appointed to the Vatican, CRTV added.

Talking to the press after the meeting with the Prime Minister, the ambassador described the ties between Cameroon and Senegal as excellent.

Senegal's Ambassador to Cameroon was found dead “while watching TV” at his residence in capital Yaounde on Sunday, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Senegalese Abroad Sidiki Kaba said on Monday.

Kaba said all arrangements have been made for the quick repatriation of his body to Senegal.

The government "offers its heartfelt condolences to the widow, the family and the Senegalese people to whom he [Kaba] expresses his compassion and sympathy", the Senegalese news agency, APS, said in a press release.

Cameroonian media said the diplomat had already completed his term in the country. He came to Cameroon in August 2015.

He said some of the high points of the cooperation were the agreements that were ready for signing; one of which is the exemption of visas for holders of official passports, decentralised cooperation and higher education.

Badji was expected to host the Cameroon-Senegal Joint Commission this year and he remained optimistic that officials of the two countries would sign the agreements during the session.
