Twin Towns of Bamenda and Buea witness ineffective resumption of schools

Calm, Peace and this graveyard-like atmosphere welcomes any visitor into the chieftowns of the North West and South West Regions, Monday January 9, 2017.

"This is a once-in-a-generation ineffective school resumption," Ntangunu Michael said, "because I think it will reverberate for quite a long time."

The ghosttown indicates there has been no effective resumption of classes in nursery, primary, secondary and high schools in Bamenda and Buea.
Credible information from sure Sources however reveal that teachers in a few schools were ready for lessons, but the empty classrooms rendered their efforts to complete the sylabus sterile. It's hard to think of a craft, profession or skill whose standards have endured for so long.

It would appear the information broadcast on social media warning parents not to send their children to school scared a good number of families who still want to spend cherished moments with their kids.  

''Before the official take off of term two, Ntangunu said, information was broadcast on social media preventing teachers from accomplishing their tasks and scaring kids from the four walls of their classrooms.'' 

The ineffective resumption of classes for the 2nd term of the school year in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon do not only paralyse the education and economic sectors of the nation, but leave the government to ponder on the option of dialogue over the pressing Anglophone problem.
''The fact and truth counted for something. Politicians are to be held accountable. This country has never had such a compelling peaceful protest that went as low as this one did, Ntangunu said, or one where both parties both have such negative education oriented goals.''

The transport network was paralyzed with the absence of yellow cars, 'okadas' and school buses which usually facilitate movement for the teachers, parents, pupils or students on such occasions.

A liitle tension however aroused around Mutengene; Mile 16 and 17 which was later tamed by some peaceful patriots. 

Nasty enough to gag a buzzard, the very quiet scenes send signals to the administrative quarters on the seriousness of Anglophones on pressing issues.

"There's a deadline every nanosecond," Ntangunu said.
And that leaves less time for actual reporting. But are the politicians and administrative authories aware of how precious time is for the education family?
