When I did get through to him, the only words I could mutter were “brother I love you” and all he said was “I love you to“.

Once he found out that he was alive, he was not going to let other people suffer and die so he went back in to be of help to others.An act of heroism by one of the surviving train passengers in the major train crash in Cameroon.

Betty Nseng Abeng talks about the deadly train crash that happened in #ESEKA CAMEROON

A conversation from Cameroon, the frustration and issues arising from the deadly train crash last Friday that killed 79 people at least, Betty Abeng’s brother Roland Abeng was on that train and thankfully survived the crash. He survived but at least 79 people according to the BBC #WHYS did not. So here is some of the issue about the crash that got people talking in the country and around the world in the aftermath on  95.7 F.M Bamenda Cameroon.

I was contacted by the BBC world service yesterday on twitter to attend the Programme BBC Have Your Say by the producers.

They had followed my twitter feed and could tell i had been directly affected by the crash. Together with two other correspondents we all had to share our views regarding the way the drama unfolded, the response from the public and that of the government.

It was very important to also highlight the infrastructural challenges all over Cameroon.

As a Cameroonian it was vital for me to realise that though my family was lucky, the story was a completely different one for many others – With people yet to be reunited with the mortal remains of their loved ones and others unaccounted for.

If there was a time I felt my voice could matter, it was certainly this time. I pray that the bereaved are comforted and that the wounded are healed. However the reall healing has to take place in our government.
