Booksellers make brisk business at the dawn of the 2nd week of the 2015-2016 school year
This scene welcomes you to the second hand book vending hub at the Commercial avenue of Bamenda. Parents are still buying books days 8 days into the academic resumption of the 2015-2016 school year.
The Booksellers admit the late start could be blamed on the hardship and difficulties parents face on daily basis. From the commercial avenue, a visit to some bookshops met us with some parents very much involved in the buying of books for their kids at the beginning of the second week of the 2015-2016 school year.
Bookshop owners and managers affirmed that there is brisk business this season compared to last year. They however testified the exercise wasn't hitch free.
The Bookshop sellers promised to tackle the non availaibility of required books as parents in their struggle continue to make the necessary efforts for their children to begin late, than never, on a good foot.
