The residuals of Bamenda, North West region of Cameroon have happily resumed socio-economic activities today after spending several days at home.

The resumption of activities was seemingly timid as most shopes and offices remained closed. Various markets in the town were however jam packed by inhabitants scrambling for consumables.

“I took the risk coming to the market today, passing several check points just to observed places, I haven’t sold anything since morning, people are only focus on buying consumables” said a shoe trader at the Bamenda main market.

Some consumables experienced price hike due to high demands and shortage in supply. “I took FCFA 10.000 to the market but was unable to purchase anything substantial for my household” a buyer told this reporter.

It is being suspected that the situation in Bamenda might get worse, rendering inhabitants hopeless if the government doesn’t revisit the communique restricting the circulation of private and commercial motor bikes.
