Inhabitants of Fako Division have been encouraged to clean their premises twice weekly in order to welcome visitors for the upcoming Africa Football Cup of Nations (AFCON) in a clean environment.

The call was made by South-West Governor Okalia Bilai Bernard while officially launching a special cleanup campaign that will run right up to the end of the AFCON.

From the Great Soppo Market in Buea to the Wokoko neighborhood and then the Mile 17 Motor Park, South-West Governor and other administrators made a stop to carry out cleaning exercises to keep the standards of the town in preparation for the upcoming football festival.

Similar exercises were also performed in Mutengene, Tiko, and Limbe.

“We were on the field to clean all that is dirty around. We are going to welcome delegations of foreigners who are coming to stay with us here for a month. We should show them that we are clean people, we prepare to welcome them and that we are going to celebrate the event,” Okalia said.

He urged the inhabitants of Fako Division to be active participants in the special clean-up exercise on Tuesdays and Fridays.

“The population should come out at least twice a week to carry out a massive cleanup campaign. And those whose buildings are along the road, they should paint their buildings,” Governor Okalia said.

Buea and Limbe will host teams for the African Nations Championship to take place from January 9 to February 6, 2022, in Cameroon.

The Molyko Stadium in Buea, the Limbe Centenary Stadium, and Limbe Middle Farms Stadium will serve as training pitches while the Limbe Omnisport Stadium will host pool matches.

The Limbe Stadium will host the pool comprising Sudan, Guinea-Bissau, Tunisia, and Mali.

Months back, the City Mayor of Limbe, Motanga Andrew Monjimba said they were excitedly looking forward to the competition. He said their experiences gathered during the organization of the Limbe Festival of Arts and Culture, FESTAC, and the Cameroon Cultural Festival, FENAC, among others put them in a better position to host the tourney’s Fan Zone Village.
