The town of Santa in the Mezam Division, gateway to the North West region of Cameroon and home town of former Prime Minister, late Simon Achidi Achu is witnessing some changes as it prepares to welcome the remains of its son.


The Grand stand, expected to welcome thousands of mourners from in and out of Cameroon for the official funeral ceremony of the late State man has been fixed and potholes leading to it filled.

Besides works at the Grand stand, some portions of the road in the town are being tarred. The Governor of the North West region, Adolphe Lele LAFrique was on the site recently to inspect the advancement of works.
