A 35-year-old cable operator died on Monday at Besséké valley reserved for Labour Day parades in Douala, the economic metropolis. Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that the death occurred, following a scuffle, around the Labor Day parade boulevard. The incident also caused several serious injuries.
The drama did not prevent the staging of the workers parade in Douala, as in everywhere in the country. As part of the 131st edition of Labor Day, Cameroonian workers took the opportunity of their parade, to convey messages that revolve around their conditions. It was precisely the upgrading of their salaries and social security. As a reminder, less than 30% of workers in Cameroon have decent jobs.
