Bamenda III Council adopts budget

The Bamenda III Council which embodies the villages of Nkwen and Banjah has voted a budget of 173 500 000 for the 2010 fiscal year. That figure marks a slight drop from last year's budget.

According to Mayor Pius Ngwa Amando,the reduction is explained by the fact that the Bamenda City Council to which Bamenda I (Bamendakwe), Bamenda II (Mankon, Mbatu, Nsongwa and Chomba) and Bamenda III belong, has assumed some of the development projects that would have gone to the three Councils.

Mezam Senior Divisional Officer, Mache Njouonwet Jospeh Bertrand, praised the Council for its sense of realism.
