Dibanda chief warns denizens to stay off streets, turn off all lights as village will be “washed”

0

The traditional council of Mile 14 Dipanda village in Buea sub division has issued a stern warning to all residents of the small town which shares boundaries with Mutengene and all visitors to remain indoors from Monday evening beginning 8:30 pm till 5:00 am on Tuesday.

The announcement which was made available to all residents through small posters and some handed to business owners was titled “Public warning”. The public warning sates that, all persons should remain indoors, businesses closed and private and security lights turn off as there shall be “special traditional rites” in the village. The warning finally adds that there shall be no exception to the order and adds that for whatsoever reasons no one should be seen out of the house.

The news has sparked criticism from many especially business owners who see the decision as infringing on their rights especially during these periods where their shops and businesses are closed for the better part of the day due to ghost towns and can only make some sales in the evenings.

One councilor who opted for anonymity when contacted by TeboPost, told me that the traditional rights are intended to wash the village. Squeezed on why they are washing the village and what impacts it will have on the community, he told me “I can’t comment further than this. Thank”
