89 out of 90 buses for AFCON 2021 missing in Cameroon

Yet-to-be-confirmed reports suggest that 89 out of 90 buses the Cameroon government purchased for the just-ended 2021 Africa Cup of Nations have gone missing.

There is also suspicion of hijacking of the buses that transported the footballers.

The newspaper L’anecdote, published in Yaoundé, speaks of “89 buses missing”.

In fact, two months after the official closing ceremony of the 33rd edition of the African Cup of Nations football contested in Cameroon, the vehicles acquired for the transport of the various delegations that took part in this competition remain untraceable. Of the 90 buses put into service on the occasion of this continental event, only that of the Indomitable Lions remains identifiable.

Should we paste this news to question “Presidential silences”? The Independent returns to the work of the spirited journalist, François Marc Modzom, theorizing on presidential silences. Works that have fueled all the more mockery and jeers that this object of study, beyond political sensitivities and quarrels in shops and chapels, regains all its relevance.
