Bishop of Kumbo Diocese calls for school resumption

The Bishop of the Kumbo Diocese, His Lordship George Nkuo, who is the Vice President of the Bamenda Provincial Episcopal Conference, has called on Catholic faithful to commence with registration of their children in schools for the 2017/2018 academic year. He said the main mission of the Catholic Church is the education of the children.

He went as far as sending communiqués to Parishes in his Diocese which called on parents to send their children to school as this new academic school year begins. The Bishop begged parents not to use their children as sacrifices for this struggle, that another means could be devised.


Parent Teacher Associations (PTA) strongly supported the man of God’s message putting forth as justification for this call, the situation of teachers of private institutions, who have gone without salaries for months now, as a result of the school boycott. They further said the boycott is instead killing children of poor Southern Cameroonians, given that rich parents have sent their children to study in French speaking Regions of the country.
