Testing The Ground, Life Staggering In Mbengwi

At last the long awaited return to normalcy is gradually gaining grounds, close to two weeks after the town was completely shutdown prior to the historic Oct. 7 2018 presidential election in Cameroon that is now history but whose dust raised is still very much hovering in the air as the entire nation anxiously awaits the verdict from the constitutional council, charged with the proclamation of results in no distant time from today.

Live returning gradually to Mbengwi

Today Wednesday October 10th, the Mbon Motor Park is once more busy. The market is open. Few provision shops too in and out of the market are also open. There are many food stuff sellers and buyers at the market gate. One restaurateur managed to cook some food today. A building materials store is open same as a mechanic that’s already in his garage. Some drivers have brought their cars for minor repairs and pumping of air into their tyres so as to get ready to hit the roads once more.

But there’s bad news coming in from Bamenda that the bridge over River Mezam at Alahchou, Mankon has been destroyed by separatist fighters, meaning vehicles will have to look for other roads like through Bali Nyonga oh through Alahbukam to get into Bamenda. The said bridge in Bamenda II sub division and the Abbi bridge in Mbengwi central sub division are reported to be the most solid on the Bamenda – Mbengwi highway because they were constructed by the Germans. Many inhabitants have been expressing total dissatisfaction with the act which they term as “uncalled for”.
