DDR Bamenda: Anglophone Crisis Ex-Fighters Request Primary School For Kids


 By Raymond Dingana

Article 28 of the UNCRC says that children and young people have the right to education no matter who they are: regardless of race, gender or disability; if they're in detention, or if they're a refugee.

This seems to have touched the soft spot of the Northwest Regional Coordinator of the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Center, DDR Bamenda Kum Henry Ichu who have now requested for a primary school for the kids at the center.

The plea was echored Friday July 17,2022 during the graduation ceremony of the first batch of Pre-Nursery and Nursery school kids who are all children of former separatist fighters at the center.

According to Kum Henry, the kids who have graduated from the Nursery school need to further their education reason why the DDR Center is in dire need of a primary school,

Just like children elsewhere, those in this center also need education and care. This is why a primary school is needed so that they can also be educated, Kum said.
The call for the Bamenda DDR Center to be granted a primary school was re-echored by Yombe Evans, an ex fighter and a grade one teacher since 2014/15 who is also the one teaching the children,
My greatest problem now as far as the education of these children is concerned is the fact that they exist no primary school where the kids can further their education. The parents and the ex fighters cry to you for the creation of a primary school in this center.

Out of the ten pupils who graduated, six are heading to Nursery from Pre Nursery  while four are going to Primary One.  The children were also awarded prizes by the center during the graduation ceremony.
All fingers are now crossed to see whether the pleas from the DDR Center in Bamenda will move the authorities in any way so that a primary school can see the light of day at the DDR Center in Bamenda.
