The dispensation of quality health care in some parts of the North West region of Cameroon has been hampered for sometime now largely due to an armed conflict entering its 5th and the lack of stable electricity.

For close to 24 months now, there is general low voltage across the city of Bamenda while other towns go for months without electricity.

Standby Generator donated to the Health Centre 

One of the health facilities largely suffering from lack of electricity which has gone a long way to hamper the quality of health delivery is the Chomba integrated health Centre.

This difficulty that was expressed to the executive of the Bamenda II Council has been resolved. A Standby generator has been provided to meet the deficiency in electricity supply. In addition, the council provided beds, mattresses, chairs scales to boast the delivery of health care.

Some of the Equipments donated

Representatives of Chomba saluted the donation from the council but like Oliver twist demand for more drugs to be provided to the Centre by the council.

The reception exercise Wednesday 20th October 2021 also saw teachers of some 26 government owned primary schools receive their minimum packages.

Chenwi Peter, Mayor of the Bamenda II Council regretted that this package is coming late because "of the prevailing insecurity that made it difficult for the Head teachers to come for the reception"

Bemused by the quantity allocated to them this year, the Head teachers question the Mayor why the package dwindled as compared to that of last year.

In response, the Mayor said; "the package is the same for everyone who is present here today. They will additions to the schools that are functioning base on their needs."

The inspector of Basic Education for Bamenda II, Komtanghi Bronhilda saluted the cooperation between the Head teachers and the council, promising to hand vital statistics to the council that will go a long way to solve he distribution problem.

The Bamenda II Council also equipped the offices of the Head teachers of GS Ngomgham and GS Chomba with an executive chair, wool carpet, a photocopier, printer, a computer, a clock and other chairs.

16 of the 26 government owned schools are functioning in Bamenda II. A number the Mayor says must be improved in the months ahead.
