    Military dispatched to the North West & South West to fight separatists complain that the government is not giving them enough money to feed

    Defense elements deployed to the North West and South West regions to wage war against secessionists complain about their treatment.

    "We are given cold meals, inedible rice that comes in cans and has too much salt, we have difficulties eating it. It comes in small boxes containing two cans. Inside the small equipment we are given there are matches to warm up the rice. What annoys us is that it's the same meal every day. The excess salt that is in the rice makes it difficult for consumption."- says a soldier interviewed by the newspaper that broke the story. 

    In the Northwest and South West, the money allocated for daily food consumption is a problem, especially since, according to the soldiers, it has not been regular for some time. Since January 30, a source told the newspaper, the military have been weaned from the pocket money that they are often given, which amounts to 2000 FCFA per day.

    "That's why we are given this cold meal that gives diarrhea to many comrades. And even these 2000 francs can not allow a soldier to be fit and energetic, the cost of living is very high here. These 2000 francs is much, but then very insufficient. Since the population knows that we are the army, a dish that costs 500 FCFA is sold to us at 1000 francs. And so if we take a meal of 1000 francs in the morning, another in the afternoon around 1-2PM, we must be sure to fast in the night"- says a soldier under anonymity.

    And to continue: "We must not lose sight that we are very mobile, which digs the belly. If at least we were allowed to withdraw our money all the time, we would certainly have fewer problems. Those who have credit cards do not have too many problems, they are forced to make withdrawals to improve their living conditions."
