“Travelling to Kwa-Kwa in Mbonge Sub-division of the South West Region of Cameroon is now safe and possible.”
These were the words of the Senior Divisional Officer (SDO) for Meme, Chamberlin Ntou’ou Ndong.
The SDO made the declaration, Thursday August 23, 2018, after a courtesy visit to Kwa-Kwa to grant humanitarian aid to the internally displaced persons.
Back in Kumba I Municipality, the SDO for Meme Division met with some of the internally displaced persons suffering as a result of the on-going Anglophone Crisis.
Talking to a few locals of Kwa-Kwa, who had fled the village and were taking refuge in Kumba after the military set the entire village on fire, Ntou’ou Ndong said: “you should not be afraid because the area is fully secure, security has been reinforced to protect you all. We can now travel to Kwa-Kwa freely”.
The SDO also urged those in the bushes to come back home and collect their own share of the humanitarian aid, which he said was destined to them.
“Tell those in the bushes to come home, tell them that everywhere is safe now. You see all these items are for them. Let them come and collect their share of the humanitarian assistance,” he added.
The items distributed included matrasses, buckets, blankets, savons among others.
The beneficiaries expressed satisfaction with the items given to them.
“I am happy with these items, we have suffered in the bushes, now we can use the blankets to cover ourselves from cold”, a beneficiary averred.
Kumba, it should be recalled, has also been hit by the on-going Anglophone Crisis with several lives lost and properties destroyed.
