Bamenda is no longer a dead city. Since yesterday Thursday 24 November 2016, the capital city of the North-West Region has resumed its usual animation. People go back to their jobs. Some with fear to sell, even if the defense and security forces are still posted in sensitive corners.
Bamenda gradually recovering from a popular insurrection that lasted two days. The dissatisfied demonstrators of the Yaounde regime erected barricades on different public roads. They also vandalized and burned other property. An official report reveals death and material damage.
“Calm has returned to Bamenda. Unfortunately, we lost a citizen. Investigations are underway to establish accountability. I would like to ask the people to return to their activities, including at the University of Bamenda, “said the Governor of the Northwest Region, Adolphe Lélé Lafrique, after a mini-tour carried out yesterday in the city .
While some businesses have reopened, schools remain closed, just as lawyers continue to make the “Dead Court“. The mood swings of teachers and English-speaking lawyers are at the root of the popular insurrection recorded on Monday and Tuesday in Bamenda.
In order to restore peace and find common ground with teachers and lawyers, the Prime Minister, Head of Government arrived this Friday, November 25, 2016 in the regional capital of the Northwest. The resolutions that will be taken at the end of the crisis meeting between Philemon Yang and the strikers are much awaited.
