Donga Mantung SDO Puts Promoters of Party Militias to Task, Warns

 By Haruna Mohammed

The Senior Divisional for Donga Mantung Division in the North West Region of Cameroon has warned against the creation of party militia in the Division. Addressing political stakeholders against the backdrop of the Wat incident where Mary Awudu Ngayi, (wife of Hon. Awudu) and the market master for Wat (Ngwayi Ivo alias Ajento Baba) were assaulted by CPDM militants, Ngone Ndodemesape Bernard made it clear that Donga Mantung is not fertile ground for party militias. He warned that anyone who takes the law into his/her hands or carries out jungle justice like was the case in Wat will have to be punished accordingly and that person will also face the rage of law courts. Harping on the Wat incident where some individual took the law into their hands, Donga Mantung SDO vomitted that Nkambe is already having a bad image because of that incident. On the security measures, the SDO revealed that all drinking spots (beer parlours, sha houses and fiang drinking spots) shall be closed at certain hours of the night adding that routine patrols shall ensure it strict respect. Harping on why peace must reign in Donga Mantung before, during and after the September 30, Municipal and Legislative Elections, Ngone Ndodemesape Bernard reiterated the need for peaceful co-existence and political tolerance.  The media was also catapulted for it role in sensitizing the population on the distribution of voters’ cards. Responsible journalism, the SDO observed should be the menu of media practitioners in Donga Mantung Division. He also warned that political parties shouldn’t us traditional rulers as political tools. As September 30, approaches, security measures we gathered will be intensified with patrols in notorious quarters of Nkambe.
