Following Collapse of 4 Floors Building in Tubah: All Buildings to be Evaluated, Soils Tested at the Expense of Owners

Was what was resolved by Councilors of the Tubah Council on the occasion of the mid-term Evaluation session which played host at the Council Hall on the 22nd of July 2015.
Categorically firm on the point, councilors resolved unanimously that all story buildings, including residence belt within the last ten years in the municipality be reevaluated, cross examined and soil tested by any competent engineering firm or company at the expense of owners of such buildings.
Not leaving out even those which has building permits, because most of those who obtained, did not build following the specifications there in by the council engineer or were the soils properly tested not to talk of the weight load of the building on the pillars and foundation.


This to the 35 councilors was a precautionary and preventive measure to avoid any eventuality like the one that occurred around P CCAST Bambili last week where a four story building crumbled and collapsed fortunately without snatching any human soul.
“Just the incident, is enough source for major preoccupation and need for absolute security to prevent a likely situations again”.
Hear the Mayor Tanjong Martin “owners of such buildings careless about the welfare of our children, all they think is business and planting huge structures. Our responsibility is to protect and secure the lives of Cameroonian citizens in our municipality caring less of what financial constrain it will cost investors of such big building who even deliberately shy away from paying their building permits. The time for action is now, it is either we protect the living rights of individuals harboring these structure or we wait to be called to rescue other subsequent grievous incidents that will cost lives”.
