A new date is still to be announced for the case filed by some parents against church leaders.
On the strength of an announcement made yesterday 19 April, 2017 by the registrar of the Bamenda Court of First Instance, the court session fixed for 21 April to hear Catholic and Cameroon Baptist Convention, CBC, Church leaders in connection with the Anglophone crisis will not hold due to the removal of the corps of late Magistrate Kilbat Noel from the Bamenda Regional Hospital mortuary on the same day. The announcement read in the St. Joseph’s metropolitan Cathedral yesterday 19 April advises litigants and interested parties to consult the notice board of the court for the next hearing date.
Reacting to the announcement in Church, Archbishop Cornelius Fontem Esua prayed the matter to take place soon because once charged to court it is good to be tried and convicted or acquitted stressing that justice delayed is justice denied. Another announcement in the Church during the ordination of priests in the Cathedral by the Archdiocesan director of Communication, Reverend Father Humphrey Tatah Mbuy dissociated Catholic Archdiocesan Parent Teachers’ Association, PTA from the Consortium of parents whose individuals claim to talk on behalf of the parents of the Catholic institutions of learning. The disclaimer is signed by Richard Ndeh, Salla Ernest, Mrs Victorine Chamba, Prof. Simon Tatah Ngenge and Ndofor Calembaa.
Meanwhile, in yet another announcement addressed to radio Evangelium, a certain Col. Tamabang Simon Nche is categorical that he is not connected to the so called consortium of parent.
