Just five days after the 20th edition of the University Games that held in Bamenda from the 22nd to the 29th of April, 2017, the infrastructure constructed by Francophone companies worth billions of FCFA have started crumbling. The Tribune which hosted all the official ceremonies presided over by Jacques Fame Ndongo, the anti Anglophone Minister of Higher Education during the recent 2017 University Games at the Bambili Campus has collapsed. A part of the freshly constructed metal framework has been lying on the steps for three days running.
The Francophone political elites who attended the games must have been lucky that the grand stand did not fell during the games. The affected area is precisely under the platform where people took shelter when it rained during the Games. A senior Southern Cameroonian serving the Biya Francophone regime observed that the collapse was the result of the bad work that has been done on the infrastructure of the Games.
Cameroon Concord News gathered that everything was done in a hurry in a bid to counter the ghost town operations currently going on in Southern Cameroons. According to a source within the Commission which was in charge of organizing the 20th University Games, the government released 3 billion CFA for the construction of infrastructure at the Bambili Campus in Bamenda, where the Games were held for the first time. Ghost towns will return on Monday in both the Bamenda and Buea provinces of Southern Cameroons.
