Cameroon: Many feared death in a tragic crash on the Yaounde-Bafoussam highway

An accident has beenreported on the  highway  linking Yaounde and Bafoussam today, Sunday 20.08.2017.The accident, involving a Toyoto Hiace a bus , is said to have claimed dozens of lives at the spot.The acident occured at a small locality called Nkometou.


This acccident comes barely a night after the Muyuka tragedy in which  a nineteen-seater bus and a cargo truck crashed at Mile 29, Ekona. Eye witness account hold that, the heavily-loaded cargo truck from the nation’s industrial hub, Douala, collided with a nineteen-seater bus transporting members of the Buea-based “wana wa wonja” choir, from Muyuka to Buea. As reports hold it, upon descending the sloppy Mile 29 hill, the cargo truck, cripplingly loaded with beverages and other consumer goods, experienced a brake malfunction which delivered the truck into the unwelcoming arms of the nineteen-seater bus whose members, this reporter gathered, were from a night vigil. Even though it is yet unclear how many passengers boarded the bus, the corpses recovered from the accident scene were nineteen while the driver of the cargo equally lost his life bringing the death toll to twenty.
