    After the death of 4 prisoners not officially confirmed last week; we learn this morning of the death of two other prisoners with symptoms of Covid-19.

    The coronavirus pandemic is now hitting Kondengui prison, which has justified the moods launched by prisoners to guard against this disease this week.

    Political leaders have followed in the footsteps of the UN, which has called for the release of prisoners to relieve congestion; And the government’s response was quick. This week, the president of the republic signed a decree of surrender and commutation of sentence of certain prisoners.

    An act expected, but criticized by some political leaders who wonder when did the Superior Council of the Judiciary sit to make this decision as provided by law! For them, the president is no longer able to govern.

    YAOUNDE - Thousands of Cameroonian prisoners have effectively regained their freedom, as ordered by the central African state’s President Paul Biya, after his government reported that the coronavirus pandemic was spreading and inmates were among the groups with the highest level of exposure. The government has, however, not provided the number of infected inmates but says more than 1,500 people have been tested COVID-19 positive in Cameroon in less than two months, with over 50 deaths.

    Speaking via a messaging application from Cameroon’s English-speaking northwestern town of Bamenda Henry Asaah Ngu, superintendent of the Bamenda Central prison says the 138 inmates who have regained their freedom were all tested COVID-19-free. He says their departure makes it possible for prison staff to ensure that compliance with principles of hygiene is effective to check the spread of the coronavirus.

    "With this release, we will be able to apply very strictly that aspect of social distancing even within the prison," he said.
    ?The only security we have is our ability to adapt."
