Ambassador Michael Stephen Hoza who enjoys a good relationship with the Cameroonian dictator was quoted as saying that, the blood donated will be handed over to the Yaounde Emergency Centre, Yaounde Central Hospital, the Military Hospital and the Yaounde University Teaching Hospital.
A senior French government official serving with the French Ministry of External Affairs and International Development, Jean-Marc Ayrault who is on an official visit to Cameroon also took part in the process.
