According to report from www.cameroon-info.net who equally shared the 1minute, 13 seconds video, the scene was well experienced on October 28th, 2020 at Rond-Point Deido, in the economic capital of Cameroon, Douala.

Gathered at this crossroads leading to the Southwest region, the women were dressed in mourning clothes as they observe meditation following the gruesome killing of children at the Mother Franscica International Bilingual Academy in Kumba. Aged between 9 and 12, the children were killed and more than a dozen seriously injured.


Two police men then came to the scene and though their faces are not visible, one can be seen talking and demonstrating with hands. Speaking in the French language he said the women were to seek an authorization to mourn for the lost souls.

One of the audible voices of the women questioning if they have to obtain an authorization prior to mourning for murdered children led to an outburst of serious mourning among the women, who are evidently shocked.

October 24th, pray for Kumba

It should be noted that there have been public demonstrations and mourning of these children who were murdered as they try to gain an education they have for years been denied. They were killed in their own classroom.
