President Paul Biya has approved a total of 1 billion CFA to Cameroon’s Muslim community to help in the organisation of Hajj 2019. The announcement was made public on May the 8th by the territorial administration minister, Paul Atanga Nji who also heads the National Hajj Commission.
The corrupt Yaounde regime says the subsidy is to cope with the XAF287,000 CFA increase per pilgrim, decided by the National Hajj Commission, which has caused discontent within the Muslim community. Thanks to this support, instead of XAF2,529,000, each pilgrim will now only pay XAF2,242,000.
