One month. This is the deadline that the Regional Transport Delegate for the Central region has given to owners of city taxis operating in the Cameroonian capital, to renovate their vehicles, we learn in an official communique. After this deadline, the offenders will have their vehicles impounded, this regional manager from the Ministry of Transport stresses.
Josué Meyoua, who in his communique was very specific on the different repairs to be made on the taxis in the city of Yaounde, reveals that this measure is meant to prevent giving a bad image of the Cameroonian capital during the Africa Women Cup of Nations of football tournament, which will take place between November and December 2016 in Yaounde and Limbe.
For the moment, the taxi drivers or owners’ union have not yet officially responded to this injunction. But, in the background, some of them are applauding the initiative of the regional delegate, considering, they claim, the increasingly dilapidated state of several taxis operating in the Cameroonian capital.
