According to information from a Facebook page owned and managed by the council, the council says the mayor is committed to continue sealing shops till all businesses stop respecting ghost town
“In her continuous efforts to beat the “ghost” in Buea, the Buea Council in collaboration with Defense and Security Forces, this Monday July 13th, 2020, is currently embarking on a campaign geared towards encouraging bussiness owners in Buea to desist from closing their shops on Mondays. The statement reads in part
“This action of sealing closed shops according to the Landlord of the Municipality, Mayor David Mafani Namange Esq., will continue unperturbed to the point wherein the business life in the City of Buea is normalized especially on Mondays.” The post concluded

It remain to be seen how the population would embrace this latest action from the Lanlord of the municipality
