Cameroon – Infrastructure: A big danger on the AfCON 2019

Written by Deckson N.

Cameroon is definitely champion of humiliation and record-breaker of unpreparedness. At 18 months of the kickoff of this competition, all the projects are blocked. If there are some whose award procedures have not yet been finalized, others are still waiting for the companies to undertake the work to be chosen. The construction of the Paul Biya Stadium in Olembé is proceeding at a slow pace, due to the delay in the disbursement of counterpart funds from Cameroon, even if the Italian partner awarded the contract reassures that the works will be delivered on time.

In Douala, the construction of the Japoma stadium is not experiencing a satisfactory pace. What about the Garoua International Airport whose capacity to host traffic for a competition to the size of the AfCON, gives insomnia to the government? In total, only the stadia of Bafoussam, Limbe and, to a lesser extent, the Omnisports stadium in Yaoundé, meet the criteria required by CAF to host these competitions. Informed of the moroseness in the country of the indomitable Lions, the CAF, one learns, would consider relocating the next African meeting due to the great delay in the construction of the aforementioned infrastructures.
