As we have spoken to an English Literature teacher Yaounde, Mr. Mbutuh Romanus expressed his dissatisfaction with his school authorities and said since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, he has not received even a single Franc as salary because they were not teaching.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in Cameroon, life has not been easy with many of these private institution teachers in Cameroon especially those who solely depended on teaching. Many teachers have received the news of presidential subvention with mixed feelings saying they are not sure it may reach them.
