Yaoundé City Council issues final warning to deviant motorcyclists

“From tomorrow June 8th, all commercial motorbikes found in restricted zones will be impounded,” Luc Messi Atangana, Mayor of the Yaoundé City Council has announced.
He and the Senior Divisional Officer of Mfoundi, Emmanuel Mariel Djikdent have given a final warning to instigators of chaos in the motorbike sector.
The officials met June 7th, 2022 with leaders of commercial motorbike syndicates from all sub divisions of Mfoundi, as well as heads of security units, officials from the ministry of transport, and representatives from all seven municipal councils that make up the capital city.
It was established that in accordance with the law regulating the sector [Decree No. 2008/344/PM of 31 December 2008], the Yaoundé City Council, remains in charge of ensuring order in the nation’s capital. Henceforth, defaulters, of laid down limits of circulation and instigators of chaos and incivility, will face the force of the law:
The decision comes after multiple measures to sensitise the commercial motorbike riders, and have them respect the law. “We have again made a call for cooperation, for them to respect laid down texts restricting circulation from certain zones, for respect of the Highway Code and that they should restrain from uncivil acts,” the Mayor noted.
In the same light, the Mfoundi SDO, Emmanuel Mariel Djikdent reiterated the warning, adding that sensitisation will now go hand in hand with repressive measures against defaulters. His words: “We have seen that for a long time now urban disorder has resumed. Today we called on every stakeholder to sensitise them. We don’t need to see commercial motorbikes in some parts of town. We call on them to respect what the law says.”
