The Cameroon Railway Company and its insurer have agreed to provide assistance to the families of victims of the Eseka train tragedy. Under the agreement, Camrail and its insurance company will contribute up to 1.5million FCFA for each victim family. The money will be used finance funeral arrangements. The beneficiaries must obtain the necessary documents including the death certificate and national identity card.
As tension continues to mount in the country ever since the train crash occurred, senior administrators of Camrail have been shuttling between hospital units in Douala and Yaoundé visiting the wounded. 120 injured are still in hospitals in Douala, Yaounde and Edea.
