Yaounde: Dozens injured and three killed by train
Three people were killed on Wednesday night in Yaoundé, after being hit on the railway by a train. According to a statement from the Cameroon Railway Company, Camrail, a train returning from the rail renewal yard, at the entrance to the nation’s capital, Yaoundé crushed the three to death.
Our sources in Yaoundé hinted that the Camrail statement is “unsatisfactory” and that there was more to the story than the railway company was revealing. We gathered three bodies have been recovered from the train route and the many wounded have been rushed to a nearby hospital. Two of the three bodies have been deposited at the morgue of the Central Hospital in Yaoundé.
Securing the railway is a real problem in Cameroon. Many people, even some families have constructed settlements closely to the railway lines. This situation is not conducive to the optimum safety of railway traffic. Operating a railway transport system in a country where no one takes responsibility will surely record many more tragedies.

Colonial dictator Biya see the French as superior masters, many human lives are lost in an ailing, poor railway and roads , systematic army and police brutality, killings, torture towards it’sown citizens internet seizure in two regions which is not only a communication barrier but also trade for the entire country, a civilised French ambassador’s stated that the country is doing fine, he cannot even have the decency to visit and see for himself, what is happening in these two troubling regions,a double standard minded ignorant colonial past, who cannot accept such human atrocities in France yet promote in a third world countries by promising more money to smooth over guilt and sufferings of the people, unfortunately when any country offer money to the Biya government, which goes in their own personal account, they will want to crush anyone who want change which will undermine their personal financial gains.
