CAMEROON: The commission is visiting Eseka.


The commission of inquiry set up by the head of state Paul Biya traveled from Eseka, the city where the fatal train accident occurred.

This visit comes three weeks after the tragedy. The commission will meet with the technical manager of the Eseka railway station. The primary objective of the visit was to learn about the braking system and to determine the actual causes of the derailment of the train on the Yaoundé-Douala axis on October 21st, a derailleur that caused the deaths of more than 75 people and 600 injured.

The committee went to the urban health center and then to the Eseka district hospital to see the care of the injured and the lack of space observed by the hospital staff.

Despite some sources who teach that the train should never have left the Yaounde station due to reported malfunctions, the causes of the accident remain unknown to this day.
