The Government Delegate to the Bafoussam City Council (BCC) seized the visit of the Minister of Housing and Urban Development to say what he thinks of the development brought to the city of Bafoussam in the East Region.
In its edition of 2 May 2017, the daily newspaper Le Jour reports that Emmanuel Nzete, the Government Delegate to the BCC and Jean Claude Mbwentchou, the Minister of Housing and Urban Development (Mindhu) Once again verbally confronted themselves. The newspaper, wondering what is really going on between the two men, notes that “this is the second time in the space of two visits that these two senior state clerks are washing their dirty linen in public.” Taking advantage of Mindhu’s visit to social housing projects, the Government Delegate to the BCC declared that “the Government has abandoned Bafoussam. Since we have been here in 2009, Bafoussam has benefited from nothing, apart from the C2D “.
And to justify his words, Emmanuel Nzete points out the slowness of the C2D project, the first social housing realized with an “approximate implementation“. As one might expect, the Minister’s response was not heard. The latter noted that “many investments have been disbursed by his ministerial department and certain other Ministries for the development of the city of Bafoussam”. What is problematic according to the Minister is the follow-up of these projects on the ground by the BCC. This follow-up is a prey to blackmail and laxity, he says. “From memory, if I give you the latest figures of Mindhu in your department, I will have stiff neck. I just say from memory. The state can not do everything, “he said.
