The Catholic Diocese of Kumba has dismissed reports it is building schools in Doula, Littoral region for Anglophone students as the result of the crisis.

 

Last week, it was widely reported the Catholic Diocese of Kumba was building schools in Douala to accomodate such students who have crossed over but the mission has dismissed such reports.

The Catholic Diocese in Kumba described the information as completely false and unfounded stressing itr has major priorities than building an school out of its sphere.

“The Bishop of Kumba and the Education Council of the Diocese are alarmed  by such false information backed with  pictures of an imposing structure of the School in Douala supposed to have been constructed by the young Diocese of Kumba which is still lacking in so many basic structures for the work of evangelization,”Fr Ntoko Jacob Ebong
Chancellor of the Diocese of Kumba said in a statement.

Few days to the new school year, uncertainty still looms in the North West and South West Region of Cameroon amidst growing security concerns.

This has forced many parents to send their children to the French-speaking parts of the country with reports claiming schools are now equally relocating.

The fighting between security forces and pro-independence fighters intensify breeding and air of insecurity while several schools have been burnt down in many communities casting doubts on the effective resumption of schools in these areas.
