It is becoming extremely difficult in Yaoundé to take a step without falling on a pile of garbage deposited in the streets and not removed for ages.
This rubbish is now part of the decor to the chagrin of the people and the environment- a legacy of the Biya Francophone Beti-Ewondo regime.
Health and Safety Cameroun (Hysacam), the company in charge of the collection and management of waste appears overwhelmed by the tonnage of household waste.
The corrupt CPDM regime which recently liberalized the garbage collection and management sector is slow to find partners. As a result, garbage piles and trash cans are multiplying in the nation’s capital.
