This, the travelers say is owing to multiple colonial control posts on the said stretch of road.

The fare from Buea to Kumba before the war was a thousand francs but it is now 2500 francs, more than two times the initial cost.

A denizen who traveled through the road Tuesday, November 8 told BN that there are in all 8 colonial checkpoints on that short strip of road.

At each of the said control posts, our source revealed, that driver pays 500 francs. This is not all, the uniformed men seize money from passengers as well.
