Life is gradually returning to normal in some major cities and towns in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon after a ten-day lockdown.
In Bamenda, capital of the North West region, some government offices are open as early as 8:00 am while a few taxis and bikes were seen on the streets.
However in Bali, despite a timid return yesterday morning, it is still difficult finding vehicles playing the streets after a man was reportedly shot that morning as he was heading to his farm, a resident in Bali said.
In Buea, life is gradually returning to normal with a few taxis equally playing the streets around Buea Town while residents as well as traders were seen in the market.
The lockdown did not only affect the North West and South West regions of Cameroon but equally the neighbouring regions where transport activities were put to a halt.
In Yaounde, a few transport agencies heading to the North West region started boarding passengers heading to the North West region since Thursday night.
However, the Manager of another agency said they will wait at least till the end of this week to see how the situation in the region goes before they can resume activities.
The manager says his agency has suffered several casualties in the crisis and want to avoid a repeat of situation so they prefer to adopt a cautious approach.
However, the parks remain busy in Yaounde as those heading the both regions attempt to board the available buses.
