The Buea based mayor who is also a Christian with the Presbyterian church lashed out at church leaders including his own, the PCC moderator for failing to pay teachers during strike actions and yet not refunding the money paid by parents to the churches, accusing them of what he called “misappropriation of funds”

The no nonsense Ekema was in no consolatory tone when he said that the church leaders should face “full consequences” in courts including jail time if they are found guilty for shutting their doors and keeping children out of school despite having had paid their entire fees for the last academic year
He concluded by saying that the proprietor of schools should come up with a reimbursement plan to pay back parents who had paid some portion of money which has not been consumed”
