This involves fugitives who have fled their country the Central African Republic, due to the unrest that is plaguing the nation in order to seek refuge in Cameroon.
In its edition of 6th July 2017 as published by Cameroon-info:net, Le Jour daily newspaper revealed that at the moment, inhabitants of the Kette locality are living a life of terror. This council area is located in the Upper Nyong Division of the East Region. They are equally at the frontier which separates Cameroon and the Central African Republic.
They are therefore the ones in grave insecurity brought by the CAR refugees, who have been aggressing the population and raping the women.
Emmanuel Gbanga, the Mayor of the highly affected municipality said, “they carry out barbaric acts, brutalising the population and raping the women”
The Cameroonian daily, précised that the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), had succeeded to census this foreign population that had settled on Cameroon soil. Some of them live in Camps while others have succeeded to infiltrate into the population, making it hard to know who is who. An inhabitant of this area attests that, “they are everywhere, all around the village you will find Central Africans. Some of them are even benefiting from the generosity of the population who have given them pieces of land to cultivate and settle on”.
