(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon, via the minister of health Malachie Manaouda (photo), recently signed a XAF650 million agreement for the reconstruction of Kumba hospital. This was announced on the official’s Twitter account.

Kumba is a town located about 70 km north of Buea, the capital of the Southwestern region. It is one of the towns that have been most affected by combat between the regular army and pro-independents, who have been demanding the partitioning of the two anglophone regions since 2016.

The reconstruction deal occurs about 8 months after the health institution was razed by an arson attack. During the attack, two sick people were burnt to death while the pro-independents killed two other people. According to official figures, many people were injured and nurses kidnapped.

During the national dialogue convened by President Paul Biya, to find a solution to the socio-political crisis in the Anglophone region, the human rights and fundamental freedoms commission strongly condemned this act while regretting that “proper security measures had not been taken to protect this strategic location.”
