Cameroon: Youth Day marching parade cancelled

Youth's day celebration in Cameroon.

This year’s celebrations of the National Youth Day will be low key across the country with a recent decision by the Minister of Youth and Civic Education cancelling the marching exercise on February 11.

According to a release issued by Minister Mounouna Foutsou, the measure has been taken in order to avoid the further propagation of the COVID-19 and to preserve the health of the population.

Thus activities around the celebrations will mostly be done virtually as well as on the site for activities that will not pull large crowds; but must be done in strict respect of the barrier measures, the Minister of Youth and Civic Education said.

The decision comes after  a recent resurgence of COVID-19 in some major cities of the country as Cameroonian authorities continue to call on the population to respect barrier measures.
