Brother Clementian taught us Mathematics. He gave us weekly one-hour tests (with three questions). His teaching / training enabled most students to finish the three-hour Matriculation examination (with six questions) in much less time and to gain distinction. He is revered by his former students. When he passed away, buses were still leaving the compound at the time his cortège arrived at the Tamwe Christian Cemetery.
