Le gouvernement camerounais met la pression sur le Marocain Alliances Construction pour livrer un projet de 800 logements sociaux

Investir au Cameroun | C’est un peu tendu en ce moment entre le groupe marocain Alliances Construction et le ministère en charge de l’Habitat, au sujet du projet de construction de 800 logements sociaux, à travers le pays.

En effet, Jean Claude Mbwentchou, le ministre de l’Habitat (Mindhu), a effectué une visite, le 4 juillet, pour s’enquérir de l’état d’avancement des travaux à l’Est, région qui doit accueillir 100 des 800 logements sociaux. S’adressant à l’entreprise Alliances, le Mindhu a demandé de présenter « un planning actualisé et réaliste des travaux ». Il a aussi exigé « que les ouvriers soient payés à temps, afin d’éviter la grève ». Le membre du gouvernement a demandé à l’entreprise de livrer les logements, au plus tard, en septembre 2018. Pour l’heure, le taux d’exécution des travaux est évalué à 45%.

Le lendemain, 5 juillet, M. Mbwentchou s’est rendu à Ngaoundéré, dans le septentrion du pays. Les 100 logements qui y sont construits sont exécutés à 60%. S’adressant aux responsables de l’entreprise marocaine Alliances, le Mindhu a martelé que le chantier devra impérativement être livré, au plus tard, en novembre 2018. Le ministre a aussi demandé de sédentariser les sous-traitants et d’éviter les mouvements d’humeur.

Pour rappel, ce projet de construction de 800 logements sociaux a été confié, en 2014, à l’entreprise marocaine pour un montant de 40 milliards FCFA, sur financement du Groupe Banque Atlantique. En mars 2018 déjà, le ministre en charge de l’Habitat avait fustigé « le non-respect par l’entreprise Alliances Construction Cameroun S.A., de l’exigence de faire agréer ses sous-traitants qui se sont révélés inaptes à réaliser les travaux attendus, du fait de leur faible capacité technique et financière ». Toujours selon le ministre, c’est « ce qui est l’une des causes essentielles du retard enregistré et des difficultés à respecter les délais d’exécution ».

Néanmoins, le gouvernement camerounais compte réceptionner ces 800 logements sociaux, cette année 2018. C’est une composante du Plan d’urgence triennal (Planut) engagé par les pouvoirs publics, il y a un peu plus de deux ans. Le volet habitat du Planut porte sur la construction de maisons sociales dans 8 chefs-lieux de région (à raison de 100 par chef-lieu, excepté Yaoundé et Douala).

  1. We need foreigners even to build our houses! That’s how low we could get.

  2. After collecting 60% of national budget from Ambazonia you have the temerity to to attempt to provide just 100 apartments.
    Ambazonians can build that by themselves they don’t need your help for that. The sea port and air port we expected with resources from our land you have failed to build.
    Adios.
    Ambazonia for life.

    • Sometimes I wander where you guys get your statistics? 60% of the national budget from Ambazonia? Can you elaborate more on that allegation? Misinformation is one of the reasons why we find ourselves in the current impasse, with most of you claiming that your regions are rich, and feed the rest of the country. You have never been able to provide any statistics to support your claims, you say everything on hearsay. What a disaster! 60% of the national wealth coming from Ambazonia. How? Please elaborate.

      • Mbu,
        You and your ignorance are funny. Am I the one who wrote the article here that said the Cameroonian economy was collapsing because of the 2 cubes of sugar economy of NW/SW? How can 20% of the economy collapse it?
        Since you are not sure how I arrived at my 60% of national resources emanating from Ambazonia you can prove me wrong by demonstrating how Larepublique conteibutes more than 40% to the national budget

        • @Epee Dipanda, the article didn’t say the Cameroonian economy was crumbling, it emphasized on the economy of those regions. By the way, when you say natural resources, what specifically are you talking about? Oil? Now do you know how much quantity of oil Cameroon drills everyday? If you knew what you were talking about you will surely know that natural resources do not contribute even up to 30% of the economy. That’s why even international bodies have lauded the resilence of the Cameroonian economy because unlike the economies of other countries in the sub region, the Cameroonian economy does not rely entirely on natural resources. In fact the contribution of natural resources to the economy is less than 30%. Taxation and custom revenue are the backbone of our economy, not natural resource

        • Now, considering the fact that the cameroonian economy relies on taxation and custom duties, and considering the fact that most companies taxed are located in Douala(90%) of the country’s industries, with the major port located in Douala where most custom duties are collected, we can assume that douala alone is the economic backbone of the country. One of the reasons why the current anglophone crisis does not have a big negative impact on the national economy is because most of the oil drilled in Cameroon is offshore, you and i know that the Ambazonian fighters do not have the firepower to disrupt offshore drilling. I am not taking sides on the conflict by the way, i am just trying to analize the economic impact of the crisis on the whole country, and we all know that it is very little.

    • @Mbru,
      Very useful commentary. Since you appear to know so much about the economy you probably are aware that one of the reasons why the IMF requested government to increase taxes is to compensate for the NW/SW declining output as a result of the Ambazonian interventions?
      You also know that the structure of the economy is 50% services and about 25% split between primary and secondary sector.
      Now since Cameroon does not export fighter jets and automobiles we can say without fear of contradiction that the services are essentially facilitating European company exports into Cameroon and assisting exports of the Cameroonian Agro industries?
      Without entering into analytic economics let me suggest to you that in truth close to 60% of Cameroon’s economy is reliant directly/indirectly on AGRIC

    • Since 60% of the economy is agrobased a natural extension of the analysis could be to allocate based on surface under cultivation or manpower. We know CDC alone without the government engineered shenanigans would be at 24K, the closest rivals are hevecam and Pamol plantations that come a close second at 6K each. Provision is made for Sodecoton and Sosucam.
      When you do the math you realise that 60% of Agric output is attributable to Ambazonia. When you factor in the fact that many industrial operations in Douala would not exist without output from Ambaland serving as their input you begin to understand the dynamics. Add to that about 20% contribution to GDP from extractive industries and you have the 60% of GDP attributable to Ambazonia.
      Go and do your research if you doubt.

  3. As for you larepublicans you amaze me. There is a list of the top 50 or so companies in Larepublique and I was shocked to see public utilities as leading companies in terms of turnover. Utilities which are monopolies! Hahahah.
    Please organise the referendum for Ambazonia to leave and we can then see your level as Larepublique. Even the workers in Hevecam and many plantations in Larepublique hail from Ambazonia. Largely because by government policy Pamol and CDC are being destroyed for the benefit of larepublican companies.
    If our powercam and PWD and Cameroon bank of yesteryears had not been criminally and consciously destroyed of course we would have had many companies in that list.
    Anyway do not be fooled Ambazonia still today with Agriculture, oil and gas accounts for about 60% o GDP
