Cameroon: Buea Population Wants Mayor Ekema’s Head Over 4-Month Water Supply Failure.
Buea population scrambles over compromised water sources after 4 months of no basic supply.

The population of Buea, a pedagogic city in the South West Region of the Central African country of Cameroon has expressed profound anger against its Mayor over lack of basic water supply for over four months, a victim has told National Telegraph.

According to some of the inhabitants who spoke to National Telegraph who live in Bokwoango and Nanga quarters, all precincts within Buea, they’ve been for four months without the precious liquid.

We either go to Small Soppo to fetch from the stream or the Prime Minister’s Lodge in search of water, said a source.

Another group of people in Buea who have been without water are the inhabitants of Bakweri Town a neighborhood in Buea, a local said, adding they have now turned to doubtful sources to fetch water.

 As a result of the water scarcity, the inhabitants of Bakweri town are planning to develop a source that could help the neighborhood, another local hinted.

A planning meeting is said to have taken place to this effect, Monday May 27, 2019. Reports say officials are discussing only now on how to contain the water crisis four months after.

Reports say the inhabitants are blaming Mayor Ekema Patrick Esunge who according to them has failed in his duties as Mayor of Buea but is instead putting pains on his citizens since the start of the Anglophone crisis.
