Cameroon: Woman, four children stranded after husband sells house

A mother of four is in limbo in Douala after discovering that her husband has sold their only home and disappeared.

Local media reports say the woman and her children only realised that things had changed when strange individuals stormed the building to claim ownership.

While seeking protection from government, the desperate woman has refused to quit the house. Only a bulldozer can uproot her from there, she's quoted as saying.

The couple have been together for 20 years already, it's reported.

While the exact cause of the incident is not declared yet, it's believed the whole drama began in 2015 when one of their daughters gave birth to a child. Apparently the man was not ready to be a grandfather.

CamerounWeb reports that every attempt to contact the husband has gone down the drain. "Try," he has reportedly told his children.

The identity of the family  has been withheld to protect their dignity.
