At least eight houses have been destroyed in another landslide that occurred last November 10, 2019 in Njinka, Noun Division of the West region of Cameroon, triggered by heavy downpour, reports have confirmed.
Reports say following heavy rains, a mudslide occurred in Njinka and destroyed at least eight houses in the process. No death was recorded but there have been great material damage as many families have been left completely homeless.
According to reports, the victims of Njinka landslide who have been asked to leave the site are currently taking refuge in houses of neighbours and other relatives.
While waiting for a reaction from the government, the victims have been offered 50 hectares of land for relocation.
This incident happens less than a month after a first landslide occurred in another Division of the West region of Cameroon, the Mifi, in Bafoussam, precisely in the Gouatchie neighbourhood and killed 43, injured 11 and destroyed 13 homes. The population of Njinka in the Noun Division of Cameroon’s West region is calling on the Government to address the issue of landslide in their region following Sunday’s new occurrence of the disaster.
