Mbouehe Manga,a social worker and chief of After Care school at the Buea Rehabilitation Institute for the Blind is on the run after being accused of allegedly raping the visually impaired children at the centre. Parents of the pupils on 28th of May, 2016 were seen wailing at the centre.Press reports Buea police were brought in to arrest the situation and they in turn assembled the group of the allegedly raped visually impaired boys whose age ranges from between 7 and 17 for questioning.
Mande Ntone, one of the parents blamed the centre for covering the act even after having knowledge of it.One of the minors who is also a victim narrated that Mbouehe has been doing routinely violating them since 2014 but threatened to kill or expel any of them from school if they tried speaking out.
According to BaretaPress,Barrister Mfontem Ozongashu is said to be the person who uncovered the Sodomy acts at the Bulu Blind School and then informs the Attorney General, South West Regional Headquarters of Buea. The Barrister asserted that he got the information from an authority in Yaounde that Mbouehe Manga was an alleged pedophiliac and Sodomist. Barrister Mfontem will then investigate and realised that his findings were solidly grounded. The security services were then called in because of the solid evidence against Mbouehe Manga. The pupils had confided in Barrister on how Manda had been sexually assaulting both boys and girls of the blind school.
The Director of the Buea Rehabilitation Institute for the Blind is currently under police custody and press reports that this act has been known to the school for the past 2 years and the director had earlier in 2014 wrote a letter to the Southwest Regional Delegate of Social Affairs, the DO of Buea and the Southwest Governor complaining about the issue.
However, it has been revealed that the complaint was forwarded to Yaounde and it is still lying on the Minister’s table even at the time of this report, raising eyebrows as to why a complain of this magnitude was to be sent to Yaounde without local authorities arresting the situation. It is also unthinkable that the Minister receives such a complain and does nothing to arrest the situation. Above all how could the school have allowed the said teacher to be around for those years after such a complaint of such magnitude.
