Cameroon: Road fissure cuts off Anglophone region

A road fissure in the early hours of Thursday, March 25 cut off the North West Region from the rest of the West Region of Cameroon and other parts of the country.

Heavy rains on the night of Wednesday breaking Thursday fissured the Babadjou-Bafoussam road leaving passengers stranded on both sides of the road.

However, a temporary solution was found in the afternoon as the road was filled up by midday by a local construction company, restoring circulation on the highway.

The Bamenda-Babadjou road has been a nightmare for travellers for the past years as construction works have dragged on for various reasons.

Two years ago, works were abandoned after armed men attacked the construction site razing equipment on the construction site.

The Chairman of the Social Democratic Front, Ni John Fru Ndi had pulled off a toll gate around Matazem, at the entrance of the region over the poor state of the road.

Last year, Members of Parliament from the North West Region confronted the Public Works Minister, Emmanuel Nganou Djoumessi on the stalled road projects in that part of the country as the Minister assured all abandoned works will soon resume.
