Fashion show of March 08: the very noticed delay of Chantal Biya

First Lady Chantal Biya chairs the celebration, this Sunday, March 8, 2020, of International Women's Day in Yaoundé.

Chantal Biya nevertheless arrived around fifty minutes late for the ceremony. Initially scheduled to start at 11 a.m., it is finally a little before noon that the first lady arrived at the Boulevard du 20 mai. 

The wait seemed to be long for members of the government, diplomats and other guests. But upon her arrival, Chantal Biya, took the trouble to greet the many guests present in the gallery.

Previously, she, by hand gestures, greet the large audience. It was only after this protocol that she regained her seat on the official gallery.

The grand parade could therefore start. According to details of the organization, around 27,000 women take part in the parade.
