After the volunteers' strike in the city of Douala, it is around the stadium workers of Japoma stadium, in the same city, to raise their voices, denouncing a mistreatment by the authorities in charge of the site. And threaten to boycott the quarter-final between Cameroon and the DRC on Saturday. They made this known in a correspondence addressed to the Cameroonian Minister of Sports, chairman of the organizing committee of the tournament.
"We stadiers of the site of Japoma have promised that if nothing is done to highlight our situation, we will be obliged to return the apron and cease all activities," wrote the Collective of Stadiers of Douala.
They feel they are more aggrieved than their colleagues in other CHAN stadiums. "How to understand that on the Yaounde site, a stadier receives for each match day the sum of 5000 francs. Whereas in Limbe, the same service costs 4000 francs, in Bépanda. It is 2000 francs and once in Japoma, we are gathered to give us 1000? On what criteria? Japoma alone is 50,000 seats, so, in principle, the bulk of the work".
The Douala Stadiers' Collective urges the minister to "shed light on this situation which is still going on". For the moment, the Cameroonian government has not reacted to this warning.
