The population of the Rendezvous neighborhood in Bamenda II municipality in Mezam division, North West region have criticized the mayor and City Mayor of the regional capital for allowing the corpse of an unknown man to decay in the open.
According to some locals, the abandoned corpse poses a serious health risk to the people.
The corpse has been in the open for three days and neither the Bamenda City Council nor the Bamenda II Council has bothered to clear it for burial.
“We cannot even eat freely, flies are leaving the corpse and landing on the food we eat. This is very dangerous. All we want is that the councils should disposed of the corpse,” a trader around the scene told MMI.
The lifeless body of the young man was dumped in the vicinity following heavy gunshots on Tuesday April 5.
Some individuals told our team that but for the fear of the unknown, they would have taken upon themselves to bury to the corpse. “Our culture is not the one that disrespects corpses. we respect persons even at death, burrying him is not a problem, the only problem is with those who killed the young man,” Dickson a Bamenda denizen stated.
The fear around that Locality is that with the outbreak of cholera in some parts of the country, the worst may happen.
