AFCON Withdrawal: Cameroon in debt, lost more than 1500 billion


Cameroon, which had bet all its communication marketing on said sports infrastructure, had also forgotten to treat its roads. "The images of broken roads are legion, Bafoussam, Douala, Garoua and Yaoundé are staggering, slips a delegate ComEx under the seal of anonymity. Here and there, and just a few months before the opening of the competition, it was clear that the government had no strategy to improve the state of the roads in the cities hosting the competition. "

The same pitfalls and flaws are noteworthy in terms of hygiene and sanitation, areas that have probably been as deficient as in recent years. Failing to protect citizens from the dangers of unsanitary conditions, the administrations concerned, totally inert, obviously had no strategy to improve the reception environment for the hundreds of visitors expected during the Can 2019. "Think do you really think that the CAF would have easily agreed to confirm the organization of this competition by your country, which is unable to stop the cholera epidemic since July 2018? "asks a delegate from West Africa to phone.

And what about the health component of the competition? A small visit, out of curiosity on the site of the Ministry of Public Health, allows to inform on the little case granted to this sensitive sector, in the organization of any great event. God alone, however, knows the general state of the technical plateau of Cameroonian hospitals, and the holding of the Can would no doubt have been another trauma for the country.

Last but not least, the major commitments made by Cameroon in terms of quality of telecommunications services, for the 2019 Can, still seem far from having experienced a beginning of materialization. Telephone users and - worse - the internet are better placed to show the poor performance of the country in this area. Three-year emergency plan for the acceleration of growth in bonds, it is at least 1500 billion francs that Cameroon has engulfed to host a sporting event whose unpreparedness was dying out."Funds that," sighed a Caf delegate obviously aware of the file, "a large part went to overbilling and other retro commissions."
