    Pro and Anti ghost town factions clash in Bamenda Cameroon

    At least one person has been injured after more than 20 youths took to the streets of Bamenda Monday morning to denounce the practice of ghost town. The Anti-ghost town youths wielded placards and banners, conveying messages which encouraged city dwellers to distance themselves from ghost town practices and also to stand as one to say “NO TO GHOST TOWN.’’
    Equinox Radio reported that another group (Pro-Ghost town) intercepted the anti-ghost town march to brandish their own messages, demanding city dwellers not to disrespect days marked for ghost town.

    The result was flaring tempers.

    A woman putting on the “NO GHOST TOWN” T-shirt which the pro-ghost town lynch mob termed provocative was severely beaten and had her T-shirt torn to pieces and thrown on the ground.
    Today’s Anti-ghost town march at Foncha Street Bamenda, follows after those of Limbe, Buea, and Kumba.

    It should be recalled that ghost town was declared by the now outlawed Anglophone Cameroon Civil Society Consortium in January 2017, as a strategy to gain government’s attention in order for them to address the problems of English speaking Cameroonians, especially in the North West and South West regions.

    For over three months now, markets, banks, fuelling stations, commercial centers, travel agencies among others have been seriously grounded, and the streets completely deserted with very few people and private cars rushing to their various destinations in English Cameroon.
