Hope your week has been good so far. It is Friday again, and this week, Ebola and Boko Haram continue to make news in Cameroon. Here is the scoop:

The Cameroon Minister of Public Health, Andre Mama Fouda on Wednesday  ordered the release of some 70 Ebola virus suspects that had been under observation at Ekok in  the South West Region of Cameroon. The suspects entered the country from Nigeria since mid-August and were subjected to stay in an isolated facility where they were monitored for symptoms of the Ebola virus. This is part of the government’s measures to prevent the spread of the virus into the country.

The United Nations and officials from Cameroon say several refugees have entered Cameroon’s Far North Region from Nigeria. These refugees have fled frequent attacks on the Gwoza area in Borno State, Nigeria, by the militant group, Boko Haram. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees has begun relocating 80 of the new refugees to a refugee camp which already has about 6000 Nigerians. The new refugees mainly consist of women and children.

Cameroonian cinematographer, Yibain Emile Chah, popularly known as ‘Ancestor’ has been nominated as Best Cinematographer in this year’s Zulu African Film Academy Awards (ZAFAA). The selection is for his work on the movie, ‘A Little Lie, A Little Kill’. Yibain is the only Cameroonian nominated in this year’s ZAFAA awards which will take place in London in November.
