Heavy rains have left hundreds of passengers stranded along the Bamenda-Babadjou road in the North West region.
The rains which fell throughout the night of Tuesday breaking Wednesday April 20 left a greater part of the abandoned stretch slippery. This made it difficult for vehicles to circulate.
“It’s just the beginning of the rainy season and we are facing this already. What will be the situation of the road in few weeks to come,” a passenger lament.
The Bamenda-Babadjou road has been mired in several narratives for years. Government has repeatedly blamed separatist fighters for attacking a company assigned to tar the road in 2017 for frustrating the project.
Yet majority of the population of the North West region attribute the dilapidated nature of the road to government neglect. They armed that the road had been left in bad shape even before the Anglophone crisis.
