At 33, she is among 10 women out of 438 holding command positions in the Ministry of Territorial Administration.
Maimouna Mollé Moussa is one of eight female Divisional Officers in the country, out of 360. At 33, the Divisional Officer, DO, for Garoua III Subdivision in Benoué Division of the North Region, is among elite women holding command positions under the Ministry of Territorial Administration, MINATD. In all, there are 10 women in command positions out of 438 – 10 male Regional Governors, 9 male Secretaries General in Governors’ offices, 57 male Senior Divisional Officers and 429 male Divisional Officers.
Though looking girlish, Maimouna Mollé Moussa has since her appointment on April 23, 2013 by President Paul Biya, stamped her authority on the part of the city of Garoua where she serves. She thus becomes the first ever woman to serve in a command position in the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation in the North Region. Today, local inhabitants talk of her warmth and firm style of administration – a no-nonsense leader. The “Android” DO does not hesitate to use social networks in handling urgent service matters.
Graduating from the National School of Administration and Magistracy, ENAM Yaounde, in 2010 with specialisation in General Administration, Maimouna Mollé was posted to the Department for Discipline in the Ministry of Public Service and Administrative Reform, in 2011. On August 25, 2011, she was appointed Head of Division for Police and Administrative Organisation in the office of the Governor of the North Region. She held the position alongside that of Head of Division for Economic, Social and Cultural Affairs. The defining moment came with her appointment as Divisional Officer for Garoua III Subdivision on April 23, 2013.
