flood in cameroon

Some homes farmlands and properties have been destroyed in the Maga, Kai kai, and Zina villages in the Far North region of Cameroon due to heavy rains recorded in the district.

No loss of human lives has been recorded but over a hundred families have been affected by this natural disaster which is said to have originated from the overflowing river logone.

The population of this are left in limbo as they lament on all that they have lost and are still waiting on the government to come to their aid.

This rise in water level is said to be even greater than that experienced in 2017, which  wiped off the map several villages whose residents had to take refuge on the nearby mountains. This tragedy has raised fears of waterborne diseases including cholera which is one of the major killer diseases in the region.
