A document shared on social media suggests that the Local Organizing Committee of the African Nations Championship (Cocan), the competition which Cameroon is organizing from April 4 to 25, is recruiting volunteers. The document titled “application form for volunteers for Chan 2020” is indeed fake. There is no mention of any call for applications for the recruitment of volunteers on the website of Cocan. Also, there is no date on the document.
During the last meeting of the organizing committee, the president of Cocan, Narcisse Mouelle Kombi, also Minister of Sports and Physical Education (Minsep), said that the mobilization and volunteerism commission will be supported by the Civic Service Agency and other specialized institutions of the Ministry of Youth and Civic Education (Minjec) for issues related to the recruitment and training of volunteers. But they have not started the process yet.
