Cameroon – Anglophone Crisis: Traders Who Lock Their Shops on Ghost Town Days Are “Secessionists”- Buea Mayor

Written by Deckson N.
The Mayor of Buea Council Patrick EKEMA Esunge has described as ‘secessionists’ traders who close their shops on ghost town days in his municipality.

He was speaking Monday April 24, 2017 in Buea in a briefing to the Press who sought to know from him why some shops have remained permanently closed despite the recent march against ghost town organized by him.

Patrick EKEMA Esunge said ghost towns have been less effective these days but that some ‘secessionists’ around Molyko are still adhering to the strike action but that they cannot be forced to open their shops.

He noted that areas like Buea town, Bongo Square are not in any way observing ghost town as shops were wide open Monday and the Buea town Market was booming with traders and buyers present for their daily activities.

 The mayor also used the occasion to lambast on his predecessor now Senator Mbella MOKI Charles accusing him of using his old office to talk on behalf of the Municipality. “He cannot talk on behalf of Buea Municipality today,” Patrick EKEMA said.
