11 Drowned soldiers recovered from sunken BIR ship 0

The families of the 34 soldiers, who died recently when the “Mundemba” sank off the coast of Debunsha in the Southwest Region, are expected tomorrow Friday 28 July 2017 in Douala for a tribute ceremony organized by the government.

We understand it is going to be hard for some of the family members who will take part in the event at the air base 201 in Douala. In addition to losing loved ones, they will leave the venue without their remains. Of the 34 servicemen including civilians who perished in the BIR boat, only eleven bodies have so far been recovered.

The Minister of Defense will preside tomorrow Friday in the name of the President of the Republic, the ceremony to pay tribute to the victims of the military ship which sunk on Sunday 16 July 2017. The corpses that have been found will be handed over to the families for burial.
