DOUALA: MOTOBIKE RIDERS TRADE UNION PLEAD FOR DELAY OF SANITATION CAMPAIGN

Last month, the Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul Atanga Nji announced a vast clean up campaign in the motorbike taxi sector across the country.

 According to him, the planned crackdown is intended to put an end to the chaos and insecurity being witnessed in the exercise of the activity.

The Minister recalled that during the months of August and September 2023 alone, more than 700 cases of assault, 300 cases of rape, 110 route diversions, 900 cases of serious accidents, some of whose victims were disabled for life, were reported. 

In a bid to restore order, Paul Atanga announced a vast repression campaign as from October 31, 2023.

In otherwords, all motorcycle taxi riders must allow themselves to be identified, or face the righor of the law.

Now trade unionists in the sector are pleading that the deadline be extended to enable the riders obtain the necessary documentations. 

In a letter sent to the Minister, the motorcycle taxi riders unions state that they agree with the government decision to restore order in the sector, but reiterate that the postponement of the deadline is necessary, adding that there are riders who lack identity cards and birth certificates.
