"We thought it wise to bring people together, those who have been displaced to feel at home, Bamenda II municipality can host everybody, people are suffering and don't have the means and as the Mayor am obliged to assist the people in this municipality." Mayor Chenwi Peter.

This activity comes up on December 21st, barely few days to Christmas as Christains prepare themselves to Celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The IDPs recieve the gifts from the Mayor with delight considering that era is a difficult one in purchasing items from the market.

IDPs mobilize themselves to recieve items from Mayor

The distribution is done on a Monday, a day earmarked by separatists fighters to be a ghost town and Mayor Chenwi distributes items to IDPs on this day in order to discourage the population from adhering to calls for ghost towns or special lockdowns, a strategy which according to him only impoverishes the population.

A Recipient appreciates the Mayor for his gesture and hopes that more will be provided.
"We want to thank God, we have been called to come and get food, it is a good thing, no one's name  was asked and this is prove that the Mayor truly love us, we thank him and pray that he continues like this".

Mayor Chenwi puts smiles on the faces of the suffering population, urging them to be hopeful about returning to their different homes of origin in no distant time.



The Mayors in Bamenda continue to call on the population to Shawn ghost towns in order to encourage and economic boom, promoting sustainable development and livelihood. The suffering population/maturity including IDPs have not been left out of the negative effects due to the shutdowns.
