For the past five years, the Anglophone crisis has been a hindrance to effective studies on the campus of the University of Bamenda in the North West region of Cameroon.
Today, students say their challenges are even beyond the crisis.
“The issue of inadequate class rooms is alarming on campus,” a College of Technology student testified.
“… If you want to have a free class room you either come as early as 7am or you will be forced to postpone the class for another day,” he went on, adding that they “have more then 12 different schools in Bambili and with very few classrooms to contain all the students of the various schools.”
Despite the fact their main workshop has been divided into multiple sections, it remains unable to accommodate all, resulting in constant rescheduling of classes.
The school authorities, he pleaded, should hasten their steps and find a solution. With all these challenges, “… we don’t know what plans the school administrators or the government is having to solve the present problem, or perhaps they don’t know about the existence of the problem,” he added.
