Mrs M.E.Muoneke...... Where do I really start from? Apart from being a relative of mine. You were principled but also loving ( full of empathy) You were educated not on the surface but also deep within( an educationist par excellence) You were a moralist but also truly a love of Christ the proofs are written all over your life ( deeply spiritual) You were a conservative but also a fashionista, your dressing woo and wowed lots of people ( your combinations where just incredibly perfect ) You were beautiful both inside and outside, it was clear for all eyes to see.... And today........"Aunti" as I remembered calling you, we shall miss you immensely but we talk solace knowing you rest with the one you love so very much, Jesus Adieu Aunty rest on in the bosom of your Maker !

I remember clearly like it was yesterday, the days at Ekulu Primary school. You were a disciplinarian, you were firm, you loved your pupils. You encouraged boldness, talent. No parent could mess with you. You instilled in us courage to face the world. We will miss you. You lived well. We need more people like you in the education sector. Adieu Ma!

Rest easy and rest well in the arms of the Lord Mrs ME Muoneke. I am a product of University Primary School Enugu Campus and I am all the better for it. The discipline and tutorship that I got under you can never be forgotten and formed a major foundational stone in my life. We were proud to be part of that school and all that it stood for. Thank you for being part of my early development. May the Lord surround your family with peace and succor.

Mrs Muoneke, my beautiful and elegant headmistress at University Primary School, Enugu - May God bless your soul. You are indeed a legend even in death. You made an indelible positive impression to every pupil who passed through you notwithstanding the fact that you were the overall head and not a class teacher. At that young age, i knew you had a poise, you were eloquent, very intelligent and indeed absolutely beautiful. You did not in anyway settle for less and that made the school quite enviable at the time. We were the best in all - 'Morning Information', match-past, debates and quizzes. These were achieved as a result of your underlying effort. Your aura and impact was so evidently visible even to the blind in the school. You had time for every parent, pupil and indeed all the teachers. You were never discriminatory and never failed to strongly reprimand where necessary without fear or favour. It's really amazing how some memories just stick! I remember very well your tactful intervention when i was given an overboard punishment by my class teacher in primary four. This was more than thirty five years ago. My dad lodged the complaint and you instantly stood up to it and did the needful. I have always remembered you and wondered where you've been on earth. It would have been better celebrating you in life or probably dropping these lines as a birthday wish. However, life is full of circumstances and opportunities do not come so often. Therefore, at this very moment ma, I wish you a safe journey to our maker, Our Lord Jesus Christ. You have made great impact on several lives and the best gift i can offer you now is my continuous prayers. May your soul rest peacefully. Amen. God bless you and your lineage. Chinyelu Chukwuemeka (nee nebuwa).

I can never forget the drilling we received in Grade 6 at University School Enugu Campus under your watchful eyes to ensure we passed the Federal Government college common entrance examination. You knew us each individually and knew our capabilities. You laid the foundation for my siblings and I to take on this world. You were a rare breed indeed. RIP Mrs Muoneke.

I want to start by thanking you, for helping me become who I am today. You always looked out for me, you called my late mother to come and register me in University Primary School, you where the best, you always showed my parents love. Thank you so much, I wish I was able to see you before you passed. I will always remember you in my prayers, you thought me how to pray, some of the prayers you thought me helped me a lot in my life, I appreciate every effort you made to help make me the man I am today. Thank you again... Rest in the Blossom of the Lord. You will always be remembered

I owe so much of the discipline I have as a woman today to Mrs Muoneke. She was a disciplinarian to the core. She disciplined the students, teachers and even parents! She gave University Primary School a pride of place in Enugu just by the standards she set. As a growing child, I was scared of her but I remember her personal letter to me in 1988, delivered by my mother, when she wrote to express her joy for my sterling performance in the First School Leaving Certificate Examination of the previous year! I loved the fact that I impressed her! I never got a chance to meet you as requested but you were one positive influence in my life I can't forget. Thank you for those challenges of reading and reciting news items during assembly times. How those helped in building up our confidence and eloquence! Thank you for everything and now, may your gentle soul rest in peace!

Mrs Emmy Muoneke was the wife of our foremost beacon, Chief V N Muoneke,The Onunaekwuruoha of Isseke, who passed on just recently. For the sake of love, Lolo Emmy Muoneke in spite of all the soft life provided by her loving and caring children, had to follow her dear husband. She was kind hearted, ever cheerful, and very generous. The Royal Cabinet, and infact the entire Isseke Ancient Kingdom, will surely miss her. While we urge the children to bear this great loss with fortitude, we pray for the peaceful repose of her noble soul.

Mrs. Muoneke was an icon. She was revered by all and her teachers had the utmost respect for her. She made University Primary School number one in Enugu. Our school band was awesome, we were first in everything, marchpast, quizzes and all. She was a perfectionist and had too much class and sauce. She would personally inspect our uniforms and finger nails and white socks and brown sandals. Policemen taught us how to march and play the band and so we were the best for as long as I can remember. Our marching uniform was different and it was serious business, the teachers (Mrs. Ojukwu, Mrs. Amaka and Mrs. Away all of blessed memory) who coordinated the marching were always on point, as smart as ever and took the activity very seriously because they knew our headmistress would not accept a second position. Little wonder a good crowd pulled their children from Ekulu Primary School to University Primary School when she took up the new role as headmistress. She made us pay attention to the news and recite morning information at morning assemblies and because she was a true Christian and a staunch Catholic she made everyone learn St. Paul's teaching on charity and Prayer to Angel Michael. She would say "excellent" to the pupils who did well on assembly and to those who mumbled or forgot their lines she would say "ask her/him to.....? And the pupils would all respond "go on". Next time you would come better prepared. She taught us to bow our small heads at the mention of the Name Jesus whenever we sang the school anthem. Mrs. Muoneke or Emmy Brown as my mother called was a legend in life and now in death. When I compare my primary school under Mrs. Muoneke to what we have these days I shake my head knowing that it is a far cry from what we had. Latecomers would pick every trash round the school as punishment and to an extent she knew most parents and would contact them if she saw a need to do so. I can write a whole book about my beautiful headmistress. For now it's good night and never goodbye. Rest in peace aunty.

She was Infact a goddess, she had this aura surrounding her that you can't fail to notice.. You helped mould a lot of people into who they are today, including me.. May God grant your soul eternal repose..
Posted by Onyinye Okoye on 16th March 2019
She was my headmistress in University Primary School Enugu. She had an excellent spirit! I remember the first encounter I had with her was during morning assembly. She took me out and asked why my uniform didnt have a badge. As little as i was...i couldnt explain it. So she authorised a 3 days suspension letter and sent for my parents! I was in tears! Then I didn't understand it but now I do! That single act made me become very cautious of my uniform and my dressing till this day! And im sure my parents learnt their lessons too. I loved Mrs Muoneke! Thank you ma for showing us the light and the right way to grow as little children. Thank you for giving us a great foundation as kids. Thank you for impacting our lives with values that has moulded us into who we are today! Thank you for your kind heart! I know you are resting in Heaven! You will be missed ma!

I left University Primary School in 1997 & I'm glad I attended such a Great School, suffice it to say that Mrs Moneke's input made it so! Oh! How comely and brilliant she was! I could still remember how the atmosphere used to be when you hear that Mrs Moneke is coming or passing; as quiet as a grave yard! Like she was a goddess! How disciplined and dedicated she was in the discharge of her duties as the Head Mistress. I remember the march past right from our classes to the gate at the close of school, the wonderful songs we learnt and sang, the morning assembly, so much brilliance she brought in that we all benefited from, enabling us have a strong foundation as kids. Honestly, Mrs Moneke is a rare personality, I really wish I got to meet you as an adult ma'am but I trust we'd meet at the resurrection morning. Until then.... Adieu! Rest well!

Oh seeing this picture brought back memories, as a young child in university primary school, every time I see her,I feel like a goddess just passed, her glittering gold teeth were the first I ever saw, her discipline,passion and dedication to education was exceptional and that translated in the kind of teachers who worked under her and the quality of pupils she produced. My value and foundation is tied to her in more ways than one. The education sector and world at large has lost a rare gem. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace,Amen

Awwwww. More than 20 years after leaving University primary school seeing her brought back fond memories. She was indeed a great woman!! I remember she introduced the prayer of St Michael's the archangel every morning in school. She had Class. She was a great leader. She recognised and championed the cause of good education. She was dedicated and disciplined. I am glad for the opportunity to have been trained under her watch. Rest in perfect peace Mrs M.E. Muoneke
