Families have been called to retrieve corpses of relatives from the Buea Regional General Hospital Mortuary in the shortest delay.
A delay would mean some of the corpses will start decaying. The Director of the Regional Hospital Dr ENOW Orock who made the call revealed to local media that refrigerators at the hospital have suffered breakdown and needed to be repaired. He disclosed that for now there are only 12 corpses at the hospitals mortuary and that families could retrieve them and transfer to other mortuaries.
A mortuary attendant who begged to remain anonymous revealed that some of the corpses had started showing signs of decay. The Mayor of Buea Council Patrick EKEMA who is the board chairman of the hospital had embarked on a project to construct a 200 million ultra modern mortuary but had his project stopped by the governor of South West Region, Bernard OKALIA Bilai.
