Général Express has now resumed its activities. Indeed, Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o, Cameroon’s minister of transport allowed the company to resume despite having been imposed a three-month suspension started last month.
Following an accident, on October 24, 2017, which resulted in the death of 15 people, according to official estimations, it was decided that Général Express would be suspended for three months and resume on January 25, 2017, after the buzzy holiday season. A sanction that many wished more severe at the time.
Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o explained his magnanimity in a press release published on November 27, 2017. The minister said that Général Express has “implemented the corrective measures” he recommended. Two weeks ago, for instance, the transport company organized a training session to refresh the skills of its drivers.
