Yaounde ... Cameroon - Teachers Do The Unthinkable Over Unpaid Salaries

Clad in robes, more than 60 teachers carrying placards are presently staging a protest in-front of the Ministry of Finance in Yaounde-Cameroon. They are demanding 25 months of unpaid salaries and other benefits.

One of the teachers told Cameroon Concord that government has not paid them since their posting 2 years ago. Most of them have been transferred to remote areas under very difficult conditions.

Most of are struggling to survive. When they forwarded their worries to the Ministry of Higher Education, they were told their files have been forwarded to the Ministry of finance. But they are yet to touch their salaries.

Their frustrations have been worsened by some unscrupulous officials who are demanding motivation “gombo” before their files could be looked into Armed security forces have blocked the entrance of the Ministry, preventing the demonstrators from entering. No official has come tto listen to them.
