​The Minister of Health Sir Molwyn Joseph has reported to his colleagues that a woman from Cameroon who arrived here on one of the chartered flights in December is about to give birth in less than a week to be exact.

In its weekly Cabinet Notes, the government informed that the Cameroonians, by and large, have been settling-in and there is no evidence of further attempts on their part to depart Antigua unlawfully to other Caribbean countries.

Meanwhile, the groups that have found themselves in St. Kitts and Guadeloupe continue to remain there.  

Yesterday, St Kitts and Nevis Foreign Affairs Minister Denzil Douglas said on Twin Island Media that he is awaiting information from other Caribbean countries that may want to accept the Cameroonians currently being housed at a holding center in that country.

He said the government could also consider granting asylum to those who may want to remain in St Kitts and Nevis, however, they would need to prove that repatriating them to West Africa would do more harm than good.

The West Africans have been fleeing deadly fighting in Cameroon for many years.

    I am so sorry for the young lady, because her planed was to have the baby in America. Young lady, if you think Africa is hard, a continent that is very rich in natural resources, think again, because Antigua is harder.
    I pray that you have a safe delivery. Keep praying and hoping just maybe your dreams for America, may come through. Remember we can plan our future but God has the last plan for our life.
    Take heart, young lady, God still sit on the throne.
