Holiday Workers Rewarded FCFA 600,000 

By Francis Tim Mbom

Fifteen secondary school students who have been keeping Limbe City clean during this long vacation were recently paid FCFA 40,000 each by the Government Delegate to the Limbe City Council, Andrew Motanga Monjimba.

The Government Delegate said the money was just a little effort made by the Council to aid the holiday makers when they go back to school. Motanga said the group of students was the first batch and that the second batch would start in August. The third and last segment, which he said shall constitute university students, would come in September.

While urging the beneficiaries to ensure that they don’t misuse the money for nightclubbing, he called on parents to help their kids make good use of the money to buy books and other school items. Priscilla Ngambi, an Upper Sixth student of the Our Lady of Mount Camel School, Muea, thanked the Government Delegate on behalf of her holiday job mates.

She said the money was going to enable them multiply their efforts towards achieving success in this coming academic year. The Government Delegate in answer to why most of the beneficiaries were of the Bakweri descent, said there was no bias towards the indigenes as such in the way the students were selected. He said the selection was based on their applications and on to who applied first.
