Douala - Cameroon: Who is HRH Louis Din Dika? New king of the Akwa

He succeeds his father, Sa Majesté King Charles David King Din Dika Akwa III, who died on December 8, 2020.

Sa Majesté Louis Din Dika Akwa, the second son of the deceased Roi, is 42 years old. Born on December 7th in Douala, where he spent his childhood, he completed his secondary education in Bafoussam, where he earned his baccalaureate in 1998 at the lycée Bilingue de Bafoussam.

After being brilliantly accepted at the Faculté de Médecine des Sciences Biomédicales (Fmsb), formerly Cuss, he returned to Yaoundé for his secondary studies. His education is backed up with a medical degree earned in 2005.

He is named Médecin Chef du district de Limbé upon his return to Cameroon in 2011. He advances one year and four months later to become the Chief of Division of the Health Brigade at the Regional Delegation of the Ministry of Health of the Littoral, where he is in charge of monitoring and evaluation.

Married and the father of two children, "docta", as he is affectionately known, begins a worldwide career in 2015.
