Malomba Esembe, has been greeted with the superior accolade of the Knight of the Cameroon Order of Valour by the head of state during the 2022 national day celcelebrati in the country.
South West governor Okalia Bilai did the state the honour of decorating Hon. Malomba with the topmost medal at the Buea Independence Square where festivities marking the Golden jubilee celebration of Cameroon's reunification of 1972 unfolded.
The young politician, now 36 years old received the honour, two years after his appointment as Knight of the Order of Merit in may 2020.
Malomba Esembe, now Knight of the Cameroon Order of Valour for the past 20 of his 36 years (born on 14 September 1985), has been devoted to his highest passion which is public service.
After volunteering from 2002-2003 (NB: he obtained the A levels in 2002/BHS Buea), he brilliantly passed the entrance into Cycle B of ENAM (Court Registry Section) in 2003.
He completed in 2005 and was posted to the High Court in Kribi as a Court Registrar.
He in 2006 was among the first set of civil servants who were appointed to the Ministry of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, which had just been created.
He rose from a Chef de Bureau (2006) in the Department of General Administration to Chargé d’Etude Assistant i.e. rank of Chief of Service (2008) in the Legal Affairs Unit of the Ministry.
In 2008 he passed the entrance into the Magistracy Section, Cycle A of ENAM.
Upon graduation in 2010 he was drafted into the Magistracy corps and posted to the Office of the Procureur General of the South West Region, Buea, as a prosecuting magistrate in 2011.
Motivated by President Paul BIYA’s exhortation to young Cameroonians to be daring, he decided in 2019, in the higher interest of service to his community and the nation to run for the then vacant seat of MP for Buea Urban. On November 19, 2019, he was nominated by the CPDM party for the election which he contested on February 9, 2020 and won.
Strikingly, his professional trajectory has crisscrossed the three arms of government, namely: the judiciary (as Court Registrar and later Magistrate), the executive (as staffer in the Ministry of SMEs) and now the legislative (as MP).
In the National Assembly he is the Vice chairman of the foremost Committee, the Committee on Constitutional Laws, and Executive President of the Network of Cameroonian Legislators for Road Safety.
He is also the Chair of the SW Regional Committee in charge of Monitoring the Execution of the Public Investment Budget.
In addition, he is a certified Elections Observer (KAIPTC, Ghana) and served on the Commonwealth Observer Mission to the Zambia General Elections in August 2021.
He is an Elder of the Presbyterian Church Bokwaongo and a member of the Synod (highest organ of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon).
He holds a post graduate degree in law and has attended trainings and conferences in Cameroon, Ghana, UK, USA.
He is married and a father of 3.
it is the Fount of Honour (fons honorum) in Cameroon himself, none other than the President of the Republic, H.E. Paul BIYA that found his services to the nation, deserving of the superior accolade of Knight of the Order of Valour, conferred on him on May 20th 2022.
