Ayuk John Takunchong's home was swept away by flames on the night of December 21.
All that remains is ash at the home of the former mayor of Manfe, a town in the South-West region. On the night of December 21, the residence of Ayuk John Takunchong went up in smoke despite the attempts of the police present at the scene. The arson was claimed by separatist fighters who accuse the former local authority of colluding with the Yaoundé regime.
Last August, separatist fighters burned more than a dozen homes in the Northwestern region of Oku. The main market and two government buildings were also burned to the ground. A means of repression of the separatists against the residents for having failed to respect the "dead city".
