The residents of Kumba experienced a moment of clarity as colonial regime administrators finally conceded defeat in their futile attempt to counter the longstanding Monday ghost town tradition. On Monday, January 29, the city remained eerily quiet as the populace chose to stay home in solidarity with freedom fighters and incarcerated Ambazonian leaders.

In recent weeks, the Senior Divisional Officer (SDO) of Meme County, representing the colonial administration, vigorously sought to influence bikers, taxi drivers, and shop owners to disregard the Monday ghost town tradition and resume their daily activities. Since 2017, Ambazonians have collectively agreed to observe Mondays as a day of solidarity, staying home to support the ongoing fight for the liberation of their homeland from colonial occupation.
