Residents of Douala, Cameroon’s largest city are still coping with yesterday’s floods after heavy rains.
The Cameroon Renaissance Movement, CRM has extended its compassion to the city, urging victims to remain strong.
“The CRM notes that although the city of Douala is the recurring victim of devastating floods, this situation has not received from the supposedly competent political and administrative authorities the attention necessary to limit the multifaceted damage to this climatic overflow” the party notes in a release.
Recalling various projects announced to address the flooding problem in the last couple of years, the party says they “have remained mere declarations and that the projects supposedly carried out appear at best as cosmetic improvements which turn out, as we can see, to be largely unsuited to the scale of the needs.”
“Clearly, once again, the disaster suffered by Douala exposed the inadequacies of the government, administrative and political authorities in the city in terms of urban planning,” it presses on.
To the CRM, “all this shows, if proof were still necessary, that this regime and its dismemberments are lacking solutions to improve the living environment of Cameroonians.”
