  1. Hahaha, when was the last time a motor bike was made in Cameroon? Bad dreams for Cameroon to be talking about Cars made in Cameroon. Cannot even make simple cooking pots.

    • They can’t distinguish between assembling already made parts from China & making a car….and believe me apart from maybe gate-man and cleaners, all laborers will be from China. Shame.

  2. That’ s wow! I love that. This is the time for us to begin thinking big. It’s a very good innovation and pray we keep on in that spirit.

  3. Journalists in Cameroon, need to be told that they lack all what it takes to
    be called a journalist – poor spellings, poor use of words, poor sentence
    construction etc.
    When these are absent, the story is usually not well put across, they should
    start knowing.
    Why the mad rush always, when we have good dictionaries to help? Look
    at the pictures they put up sometimes.
    Grow up young people.

  4. Great atleast for a start BUT for what price to a commoner ? About 95% of cameroonians cannot afford a bicycle.As for the journalist,,,,please gather your thoughts practice them before presenting the info at the National TV.Even radio Kembong in Manyu can’t hire you

  5. “Peugeot and prado” Really woman?
    When a woman talks, you can’t object too much lest they say you are being sexist. This lady will continue with the poor performance until she one day decides to quit.

    There is no way that emblem will make it through to the market. It is owned by Acura. I wonder who did the patenting. SMH.

    • Sexism is something more common among western women than African women (especially those of Sub-Saharan Africa). I agree though, the headline especially is misinforming. These cars are assembled and not made in Cameroon.

  6. Nothing wrong here even if all employees are chinese.we have to give these projects a chance as we have to start from somewhere. Of course it would have been better if it was from a Cameroonian.
    These vehicles “assembled locally” at least will reduce the number of “congeles” in our roads. Even if the numbers of jobs is not what can be expected, we still have to promote these kind of initiatives.
    GO KRIBI

    • I don’t agree with all the workers being Chinese. If so, then they can just make the cars in China and then ship to Cameroon. It will make sense to mix i.e Chinese and Cameroonian workers. They have the technological know-how. Cameroonians working alongside with them will help us learn some or all of their expertise.

    • what chance are u talking about .. are too dumb to understand that this will bring no good to our land but instead empty our puckets .. of what good is this to us ?.. please tell me

  7. We have to start from somewhere i totally agree. Korea started exactly like that .And even today some parts and engines of Korean cars are made in Europe . The problem is does the lazy government of Cameroon has a plan. Our country must plan to build cars with 75% parts made in the country , by 15 years .That must be the objective.

    • We are fooling ourselves to think this current regime is objective.

      • This has always been my trouble with our dear country. There has NEVER been any clear objective (s) for over 40 years. If any has ever excisted,it has never been made public. Now the big talk is 2035. What exaclty is the objective here? Emerging Economy by 2035? This is just words. The government has not put in place any clear directives or road map. Selling the country to Chines and European investors doesn’t tell much about 2035 or does it?

    According to statistics from Tang Ahanda, Chief of Standards and Planning Division in the Ministry of Public Works, Cameroon is hoping to have just 17% of paved roads by 2020. Meaning only about 12% of roads in Cameroon are paved as of 2017. On which roads will these cars be driven?

  9. @Sparrow You can also find partners from where you are writing bring them to Cameroon to help pave the remaining unrated roads or this kind of partnership does not exist in your area .It is easy to sit in a beer parlour and run your empty mouth without constructive proposals.

      Thank you Colby! I am sick of people sitting in a foreign country and criticizing any effort the government make, by the way I detest the fact that one man stays in power for 34 years. It should be 10 max.
      And people talking about English system this English language that.
      A language one speak does not build or dictate his character, but the education one receives, and the societal mentality one grew in.

        @Slave4Christ & Colby,
        Please read my write up again one more time and tell me where you found me criticizing anybody or the article. Sometimes some of you are quick to make stupid assessment of somebody. I only asked a question that “On which road would these cars be driven?” Is that synonymous to criticism? You’re one of those crazy advocates for regressive and unnecessary projects. By assembling cars in Cameroon that has only 12% paved road, how does that help the citizens and the economy?

  10. Shut up id*ot. You so ignorant of the laws of that jungle. Don’t you know there are many people willing to pave those roads but the govt doesn’t permit that? You are such a jerk. If that was possible the whole of West will be paved. But your blood sucker uncle and thugs like you made it illegal for citizens to take personal iniatives to construct or maintain public roads. Na me and you if you don’t shut up that ginger tainted and smelly pit toilet you called a mouth. Nyamfucka

    Just look around at our neighbour Nigeria. They are lucky to have massive oil reserves, but still corruption mind blogging.
    With good governance and? a love for one country any nation on Earth can excel.

  12. I like how nobody noticed that this is a clear violation of Honda Acura’s logo by China. By weti consen me de?

  13. what a shame .. a journalist that does not know the difference in car brands .. prado is a Japanese brand , Pegeot is french lol

  14. This is an expo of the models that will be made in Cameroon. They will be made in Cameroon cars as the word says. The best we can do it support Cameron. I don’t know why Cameroonians abroad always speak bad of Cameroon. Nigerians often defend their country. Criticising to the wrong audience will never make it better. The success or failure of this initiative depends on you and I buying. Let’s think positively please.
