The 2015 contingent of Cameroon soldiers who were on a peace keeping mission to the troubled Central African Republic have come to the end of their one year mission in the neighbouring country. The soldiers where received upon their arrival in the nation’s capital during a ceremony at the Ministry Head Quarters Brigade. The military event was presided over by the Minister Delegate at the Presidency in charge of Defence, Joseph Beti Assomo.
Prior the reception, each of the soldiers handed over their weapons as an indication that their contracts have ended. More than 1000 troops of the infantry, navy and air force were involved. They have returned to the country two weeks after they were replaced by another Cameroonian delegation with equal number of soldiers that left Cameroon on September 9th, 2016.
Minister Joseph Beti Assomo congratulated the Cameroonian soldiers for their sense of discipline and bravery during the mission. He said that they all will benefit from the recently announced increments in monthly bonus for soldiers involved in United Nations Multinational Integrated Stabilization mission in the Central African Republic, MINUSCA.
The Minister Delegate at the Presidency in charge of Defence noted emphatically, that soldiers found guilty of short comings will be sanctioned.
