A strike action by employees of a public transport company known as “Le Bus” has paralyzed traffic today at the north exit of Yaoundé, some few kilometers to the presidential palace.
Employees and former employees of “Le bus” company blocked the road with two large buses at the level of Bata Nlongkak, where the headquarters of their company is located. The striking drivers positioned their buses and blocked traffic creating a gigantic congestion over several kilometers.
The situation has reportedly affected the districts of Etoudi, Emana and Mballa II. Cameroon Intelligence Report understands the workers have not been paid for eighteen (18) months. The strike action has been triggered barely 3 days before the start of the Women’s African Cup of Nations in Yaoundé.
