Several villagers have left the locality of Kuk following an anomaly in Lake kuk in North-West Cameroon , this is after the lake started to produce a bad smell and change colour.
While some residents have started to leave the area others have stayed put, linking the natural phenomenon to the recent death of a traditional ruler. In other words, the ancestors were responding to his passing.
Kahn Elvis, a geology expert from the University of Yaoundé, said the smell could have been caused by the sudden release of magma from beneath the lake’s surface.
The authorities of Kuk village, Fungom district however have reassured the local population that the strange smell and change in water colour was due to the recent heavy rains.
