Inhabitants of Mamfe have taken to the streets massively, to protest the burning of the Mamfe General Hospital in the Manyu division, South West Region, by Ambazonian fighters.
The population reportedly came out in their numbers to condemn the burning down of the hospital building.
They carried with them placards with messages such as “Let love lead” “We need peace”, “Life is sacred” to mention a few.
The Senior Divisional Officer for the Manyu Division, Oum II Joseph was at the head of the peace protest. Oum Joseph used the opportunity, to urge the population to collaborate with the administrative authorities and ensure they get rid of fear.
“We Cannot settle this situation without your collaboration. The collaboration of our people, the collaboration of the whole population of Manyu.”
Tabechong Robertson, Mayor of Mamfe, pointing fingers at the Ambazonian forces, strongly condemned the burning down of infrastructures and urged them to drop their arms.
He noted “We are sick and tired of burning. We are begging them let them stop burning our properties. It’s not by burning our properties that they will separate the fight.”
Many Ambazonian leaders, Activists and sympathisers have long since condemned the burning of the hospital, denying responsibility and pointing accusing fingers at government forces.
The main cry of the inhabitants, however, remain the need for peace to reign in Manyu.
