At least 10 candidates taking the ongoing GCE practicals at GSS Buea town have been hospitalized after mysterious bees took the school
The incident set the atmosphere in a state of pandemonium as students, examination officials and even security officers took to their heels from angry bees whose origin is unknown. We are reliably told the 10 candidates have been ferried to the Buea Regional hospital where they are receiving medical Attention.
Authorities have been trooping in to put the situation under control but fear has gripped the candidates making it difficult for today's session to hold.
In the meantime, GBHS Bonadikombo in Limbe has been hit by fire this morning. The fire which ravaged the administrative block of the school has also affected parts of the library. Computers and other important data were consumed by the inferno.
Contrary to information that GCE papers were lost to the flames, Camcord has been reliably informed that the centre is not hosting the practical session and that the incident will not affect the GCE. These incidents come a day after 5 classrooms of Government primary school Atuakom were razed by yet to be identified persons.
Though the cause of these incidents has not been established there are strong indicators if is linked to the socio political stalemate in the anglophone regions . Lately there have been an aggressive campaign from some quarters to "sabotage" the GCE over the prevailing heat in the anglophone regions. The government is being blamed for forcing the Exam down the throats of students in the anglophone regions who have not been to school for 6 months now. Recent measures by the Ministry of Secondary Education towards a hitch free examination have been welcomed with criticisms.
It is feared that some students might give up taking the exams with the disturbing developments surrounding the exams in the North West and South west regions.
