Mayo-Rey

Mayo-Rey is a department of North Province in Cameroon. The department covers an area of 36,529 km² and as of 2001 had a total population of 242,441 . The capital of the department lies at Tcholliré.

According to the Fides News Agency, as of 10 April, 2014,

There is growing concern in Cameroon for the influx of refugees from the neighboring Central African Republic in the department of Mayo-Rey, in the north of the Country. Thousands of refugees, fleeing the violence of armed groups (Séléka and Anti-balaka) are concentrated in the towns of Mbaimboum and Touboro, on the border between the two Countries. Neither the local authorities nor international organizations are providing care for these people, who are left on their own or, in the best cases, can count on the solidarity of relatives and friends from Cameroon.

From the testimony gathered by Fides Agency, several refugees report to the local press that they come and go across the border depending on the situation in their Country of origin. According to local traders, there are bandits and guerrillas among Central Africans who take refuge in Cameroon who hide weapons in the territory of Cameroon and then carry out assaults in Central Africa. On the Cameroonian side, there has been an increase in robberies and assaults against cars along the roads.

The department is divided administratively into 4 communes and in turn into villages.

Country - Cameroon

Flag of Cameroon
Cameroon (Cameroun), officially the Republic of Cameroon (République du Cameroun), is a country in Central Africa. It is bordered by Nigeria to the west and north; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and the Republic of the Congo to the south. Cameroon's coastline lies on the Bight of Biafra, part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. Although Cameroon is not an ECOWAS member state, it geographically and historically is in West Africa with the Southern Cameroons which now form her Northwest and Southwest Regions having a strong West African history. The country is sometimes identified as West African and other times as Central African due to its strategic position at the crossroads between West and Central Africa.

French and English are the official languages of Cameroon. The country is often referred to as "Africa in miniature" for its geological and cultural diversity. Natural features include beaches, deserts, mountains, rainforests, and savannas. The highest point at almost 4100 m is Mount Cameroon in the Southwest Region of the country, and the largest cities in population-terms are Douala on the Wouri river, its economic capital and main seaport, Yaoundé, its political capital, and Garoua. The country is well known for its native styles of music, particularly makossa and bikutsi, and for its successful national football team.
