The société Hygiène et salubrité du Cameroun (Hysacam), in a situation of monopoly in the sector of the collection of garbage, wants to make forget the criticisms which are addressed to her for several months.
Hysacam announced on October 24 that, following the recent acquisition of 211 new trucks and 17 machines, 140 vehicles will be rapidly deployed in the two main cities of Cameroon that are Yaounde and Douala. These will be, respectively, 66 trucks in the first metropolis and 74 in the second. The city of Bamenda, meanwhile, will receive eleven. The rest will be broken down in other parts of the country.
To justify the disturbances observed in the garbage collection, Michel Ngapoun, president and CEO of Hysacam, explains that several factors are at the origin of this situation.
When you run out of money and you can not guarantee payments to companies that deliver fuel, we will have a hard time getting trucks that are a bit older and that requires more maintenance at one point. where there are no payments, says Ngapoun.
The CEO reassures that with the acquisition of new machines, his fleet now consists of 620 trucks. But it should be noted that the Presidency of the Republic has already instructed the opening of the market in this sector.
