Bamenda II population applauds Mayor for rendering Ayaba Street passable

Drivers and other road users in Bamenda II sub division have applauded the Mayor of the municipality; Chenwi Peter for making the road between Ayaba hotel and Veterinary junction passable.

A distance of less than 1.5km is covered between 10 to 15 minutes and 20 to 25 minutes on days when trafic congestion is high.  

Gullies had developed across the road causing cars to meander as they look for suitable paths to go through. When it rains, cars get stuck in the mud, needing passengers to push them across the stretch.

This disturbing scenario caused Mayor Chenwi to consider repairing the stretch which happens to be the same leading to his office, the Bamenda II Divisional office and Ayaba hotel; the lone state hotel in the region.

The filling of the potholes that took the Mayor and his staff some 2 hours to  repair was greeted with joy from the drivers

"God bless you Mr Mayor. Good Job Mr Mayor. Finally" were some of the words one could hear from the drivers as an anxious crowd turned up to watch.

Speaking to observer237.com, the Mayor noted that the road is under the jurisdiction of the city council but he could not continue to watch helplessly when his municipality suffers. He saluted the city Mayor for collaborating with him to ensure that the road is passable.

The filling of the potholes comes barely 24 hours after the killing of a contractor who was carrying out repairs at the Bamenda II council premises at Mbingfibieh, Mankon.

Reacting to the killing of the contractor and two others, mayor Chenwi says "It is totally unacceptable that people take up guns to shoot at people carelessly for trying to develop their municipality. I wish to remind them that Cameroon is one and indivisible. They should come out of their illusion let's work together to develop Bamenda II."

The portion of the road under repairs falls on the 12km stretch of inner city roads that is expected to be constructed by the government of Cameroon.

This portion of the road is part of the Bamenda City road project that has stalled since its launch in May of 2017.
