Yaounde solution: Dozens of wandering Mental patients arrested and removed from the streets

Mental patients removed from the streets

• This is an operation to rid the streets of Yaoundé of “mad people”

• It was carried out by the municipality of Yaoundé and the Ministry of Health

• 30 mentally ill people were removed

The editorial staff of Cameroon news scop4.com learned from communication service of the urban municipality of Yaoundé that a special operation has made it possible to rid the streets of the economic capital of several mentally ill people.

“After four hours of patrol, officials of the Urban Community of Yaoundé (CUY) and those of the Ministry of Public Health withdrew on June 4, nearly 30 people with schizophrenia from the streets of the capital. These patients were recovered in the districts of Yaoundé I, III, IV, VI and VII. Launched on May 7, 2021, this CUY initiative has enabled more than 150 wandering patients to benefit from medical care at the Jamot Hospital in Yaoundé . 145 others are also followed in the community”, we learn.

In addition to removing the madmen from the streets, the town hall of the city of Yaoundé has other projects to give a new face to the political capital.

These are the gradual withdrawal from circulation of taxis and private vehicles with poor physical appearance, the development and rehabilitation of sidewalks on major roads; plugging potholes.

“We invited the inhabitants of the city to paint their house,” said Luc Messi Atangana on August 10, 2021
