Political GCE in Southern Cameroon: Bamenda under high security, Soldiers transporting exam papers 0
The examination centers for the political GCE that started yesterday in West Cameroon are reportedly under very strong security presence in Bamenda with a little more than 36,000 candidates in the seven divisions of the North West region participating.
Cameroon Concord News understands the examination is under close surveillance. Victor Mombakued, the Regional Delegate for Secondary Education, reassured national opinion on the security measures taken in the various “safe examination centers”. He said to prevent pyromaniacs from attacking examination centers; the regional delegation of Secondary Education has been working in close collaboration with the staff of the Governor.
The army has been involved in the transportation and distribution of examination materials since most of the candidates are Francophone Cameroonians. Delegate Victor Mombakued was heard calling on parents to send their children to take part in the political GCE.
It should be noted that all seven divisions in the North West Region are home to GCE Writing Centers. They are Bui, Boyo, Donga Mantung, Mezam, Menchum, Momo, Ngoketunjia. The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium had declared the GCE null and void and Anglophone parents have been warned to keep their children away from those bogus GCE centers created by the Francophone regime in Yaoundé.
