Cameroon’s 2015 corruption status report has been presented in Yaounde today the 29th of December 2016. The report revealed that Cameroon lost over 170 billion FCFA as a result of corrupt practices.
The Chairman of the National Anti Corruption Commission, CONAC, Rev Dieudonne Massi Gams pinpointed the non-execution of public contracts as a major cankerworm that favors corruption. The Rev. who is making a fortune as head of the anti corruption body also hinted that some 45 projects were abandoned in 2015.
The report also indicated that over 3200 acts of corruption were denounced in 2015.The report comes at a time when CONAC, through decentralized anti-corruption units, is actively at work to take the fight down to ministries, state-owned corporations and parastatals.
The report is simply a government scheme aimed at deceiving the international community that the Yaounde regime is fighting corruption. Nothing was mentioned about the military attache’ arrested in France recently with over 1.5 million Euros.
