Road incivism along the Yaoundé-Nsimalen Expressway will henceforth be strongly punished, warns Minister of Housing and Urban Development (Minhdu), Célestine Ketcha Courtès (photo). "Any offender will be subject to the sanctions provided for by the enforceable laws and regulations,” the government official indicated in a statement read out on the 1 p.m. news on CRTV, today.
The statement follows some cases of cable theft that caused the malfunction of public lighting equipment along that major expressway, we learn.
In her press release, the Minhdu reminds users that surveillance cameras are installed along this route, filming unauthorized persons and activities daily. This system only covers the open country section, the part of the road already built and open to traffic, and on which acts of incivism are recurrent, she reassures.
As if to prove that this is no idle threat, the Minhdu affirms that Cameroonians have already been apprehended, and congratulates the security forces on these arrests. “Firm instructions have been given to the Meyo surveillance post to step up vigilance on this road infrastructure,” she added.
