President Paul Biya made a “cash donation” of 32.5 million CFA francs, 50,000 euros, to traders of a market in Douala ravaged by fire in February, state owned radio and television reported.
“The Head of State, HE Paul Biya, offers 32.5 million CFA francs to the traders of the Congo Market in Douala, whose shops were ravaged by fire on February 24,” said Cameroon Radio Television, CRTV, on social networks.
“The cash donation was given to the beneficiaries by (the Minister of Territorial Administration), Paul Atanga Nji,” continues CRTV on Twitter.
In Cameroon, where Paul Biya, 86, has been president for 36 years, presidential donations are common deep within the ruling CPDM crime syndicate.
