While football fans dither on the quality of the buses made available for the transport of teams, the tournament management announces the acquisition of 76 cars for the transport of the delegation of the Confederation of African Football in the cities of Limbe And Yaounde.

Eight buses in the colors of the teams qualified for the finals of the Women AFCON are currently stationed in the esplanade of the Yaounde council hall. While new buses were being advertised for the transport of the eight teams, “instead they rented buses from inter-urban transport agencies that were refurbished and then allocated to each team,” says a source.

Meanwhile, the management of the tournament announced the acquisition of 76 cars brand new sedans for the delegation of the CAF. “We have received 76 vehicles that will be made available to the delegation of the Confederation of African Football in the cities of Limbe and Yaounde,” Tournament Director Pierre Noungui told Cameroon Tribune on Wednesday.

Asked about the buses visible at the Yaounde council hall, he replied: “The buses currently present at the Yaounde Council do not concern us. Ours are coming.

A source at the Ministry of Transport says that the eight buses in the colors of the qualified teams have not been received. For the Urban Community, it is stated that “the company in charge of delivering them uses our space to park them“, without naming the company in question. The vagueness then persists as the initiator of this “masquerade” as decried by many observers. Cameroon could tarnish the impressive efforts already made for the organization of AFCON 2016.
