Buea Council workers embark on hunger strike over mayor’s intransigence

Some disenchanted staff of the Buea Council will today, Thursday, May 18 embark on a hunger strike over what they described as Mayor Ekema Patrick’s intransigence.
The workers also want to strike for their accumulated unpaid salaries, spanning from 17 to 22 months.
They bemoaned that the Mayor treats them with scorn and denigrates them even in front of their wives, husbands and children.

“So we want to start this hunger strike today, so that if our problems are not resolved, we will continue on May 20 for the entire nation to see what we have been going through,” one of the disillusioned worker, Monono Hans, said.
The Council staff said the Mayor has refused to tell them why he has suspended their salaries. “We have written several letters to the Mayor and he has never replied any of the letters. When we write to him, he doesn’t receive. When you go to his office, he doesn’t receive you no matter how long you stay there. It is as a result of this that we had to be writing through the Post Office so that the letter would come directly to him, and when he sees them, he sends them back to us,” Monono explained.
Other workers like Charles Moki Toni, Martin Njie Evakise and Elizabeth Ngowo Mbua, are all going through this ordeal.
