The staff of Government Bilingual High School Atiala in Bamenda were shocked to find a green snake in their office last Friday. The animal reportedly escaped without being hurt or hurting anyone. One of the personnel is said to have chased the snake with his bare hands before a colleague could bring a long bamboo, our source says.
Some people may see this as a banal incident, especially due to the closeness of the school to bushy grass.
However, in the wake of the unrest in the English speaking regions, every little thing may have a meaning or special importance.
A few weeks ago students taking examinations in the South West Region were violently attacked by bees.
Some students were seriously hurt and were hospitalized.There also have been rumours that a ghost was spotted in the English-speaking part of the nation recently.
Several students defying protest calls have been hurt, few hurt beyond repair, others given life-time scars.
Three students had their arms mutilated last week in Bamenda.This snake visit comes barely three days to start of the GCE examinations in Cameroon.
The majority of Cameroonians in the english speaking regions are expected to take the exams when they have missed more than half of the school year.Since the start of the the crisis in November 2016 classes have been very ineffective in the two regions.
