The Yaounde City Council has commissioned some 250 new multipurpose kiosks as part of its ongoing fight against urban disorder. This was at a ceremony today, December 16, chaired by the Mayor, Luc Messi Atangana.
Inaugurating the project, the City Mayor said it “… was born out of an observation: that of the existence of a multitude of kiosks of different colours and shapes, which do not contribute to giving a shining image of our city.”
“After identifying the preferred partner, Access Media in this case, it was necessary to adapt our collaboration to the requirements of public-private partnership contracts,” he added. The recently inaugurated structures, he instructed, should be set up and operational before the African Cup of Nations in January.
Accent Media CEO, Jacques Ndjamba on his part, said it was a pride to accompany the city of Yaounde in its drive for order and employment.
“Accent Media has already made available 300 kiosks and envisages adding up this number to 700 in the weeks ahead,” he revealed. The project is to cost 5 billion FCFA.
The maturing process of this project thus benefited from the supervision of the Council Support for the realization of partnership contracts, CARPA. Functioning on a build-operate-transfer model, the structures remain the property of the City Council.
