Displaced Cameroonians left without a vote

Kum Rose, 55, who fled Buea because of violence, washes dishes outside the house where she has taken refuge with her children in Yaounde, Cameroon. Tens of thousands of Cameroonians displaced by a separatist insurgency in the English-speaking Northwest and Southwest regions find themselves without a home and with nowhere to vote in Sunday's presidential election.

Grace Nah (R), 70, who said she fled violence in the northwestern division of Momo, stands outside the house where she is taking refuge in Yaounde. The chaos in Anglophone opposition strongholds may help Cameroon's 85-year-old President Paul Biya, who is expected to easily win a seventh term to extend his 36 years in office, aided in part by a weak opposition and a resigned population, many of whom view elections as a means to rubber-stamp seven more years of Biya.

Honrne Waba, 40, cooks in the courtyard of the house where she is staying in Yaounde. It was the nine corpses left by the roadside after a gunfight that made Waba flee her village in Northwest Cameroon in May and hide in the bush. When weeks later she learned that her house had been burned down with all her belongings inside, she decided to leave the region altogether.

Kum Rose, 55, who fled the southwestern city of Buea because of violence reacts as she speaks outside the house where she has taken refuge with her children in Yaounde. Displaced Anglophones in Yaounde all agree on one thing about the life they have fled: they were sick of the shooting. "You can be walking along, you hear gunshots and you see people running. You get inside, you dive on the floor," said 55-year-old Kum Rose, who in August left Bomaka, taking the bus with four children and 7 grandchildren.
