University Of Douala Lecturers Go On Strike Because Of Many Unattended Grievances, Including 24 Years Without Toilets

Lecturers of the University of Douala are in day two of their one week strike that started yesterday, Nov. 21st 2017. The Lecturers say they will sit home for one week, until their many unattended grievances for 24 years are addressed addressed with concrete solutions by the administration.

Speaking over Equinox Radio yesterday, Dr. Eyango Djombi Desmond the Coordinator of the National Union of Teachers of Higher Education Littoral - SYNES said they are working under very inhuman conditions. Dr. Eyango said for 24 years, Lecturers do not have offices. They rest under under trees, meet with students under trees, prepare lectures under tress, and worse of all they don't have toilets nor water.

"The strike action is a wake up call  forthe other side to come to order, so that they can review the way we are being treated, and call us to the dialogue table with proposals of concrete solutions to us." Dr. Eyango said.

According to him Lecturers of the said university have been going through this ordeal for the past 24 years.

In a Press release signed yesterday by Dr. Eyango, the strike will continue till Sunday Nov. 26, 2017.
