Written by Deckson N.
Four workers at the Buea Council in the South west region have embarked on s hunger strike over unpaid salaries amounting to 44 months.

The workers who had earlier suspended their strike last week due to the May 20 parade, on Tuesday May 23, 2017 besieged the premises of the regional delegation for labor and social security before moving to the Governor’s office.

The strike leader, Hans Manga Monono is accusing the Mayor Patrick Ekema of deliberately keeping their salaries for reasons best known to him. He told reporters that despite several efforts made to meet the Mayor, he has never attended to them.

The workers are Hans Managa Monono 17 months arrears, Njie Martin Evakise  and Moki Charles Toni 5 months each and Mbua Elizabeth Ngowo 22 months.

Njomo, a staff delegate speaking on behalf of the Council says the four workers have abandoned their duties and cannot today be claiming months of arrears. He said he as staff representative has not been handed the file of the workers who according to him were supposed to meet him first before taking the matter to court.

The striking workers are now waiting on the Governor of the South West region to arrest the situation in their favor.
