Nkongsamba Joins the Fray

The council will be organising end of year activities for the first time.

The Nkongsamba city council will be joining the band wagon of councils which organize special activities during the end of year festivities. The council will not only be beautifying the city but also organize leisure activities for the inhabitants of the city. According to the government Delegate to the Nkongsamba urban council, Kollo Basile, the council has entered into an agreement with a communications firm, Media Plus, to beautify the city by putting up Christmas lights around the main areas of the city such as at the esplanade of the city council hall, in front of the Senior Divisional Officer’s office, the junction to the main market and the entrance to the Bonago municipal stadium. The lighting of the city will take some hundreds of thousands and will be paid for by the council through exchange of service as the council will provide more advertising space for the communication firm over a certain period of time. The lighting process is expected to begin next week.

Besides the beautifying city, the esplanade of the city council hall will be transformed into a giant attraction ground with a merry-go-round for children, bazaars, musical concerts, games of luck as well as exhibitions from some telecommunication companies. Parents will be able to take their children for a ride on miniaturized vehicles, horses or any other animal of their choice, on the ‘merry-go-round’. The fountain at the esplanade of the city council hall will be transformed into a swimming pool for children. The attraction centre to run from December 23rd to January 2nd will be managed by an event organizer who will in turn pay some dues to the council. While the exhibiting companies will also chip in something into the council coffers. Neither the event manager nor the government was on seat to give us the exact cost.

Composed of nearly 50 per cent healthy fats and 30 per cent protein, Egusi is a great dietary supplement that can be a staple in a vegetarian diet. Rich in protein, fat, and vitamins, its benefits can be combined as follows; maintain healthy teeth, maintain healthy bone, helps in smooth digestion, prevents diarrhea and a host of others. In Yaounde like in most parts of the country egusi is an expensive commodity. A measuring glass in Yaounde is sold at FCFA 500. This quantity which usually sells at FCFA 300 cannot be gotten below FCFA 500 at this season. Vendors do not deliberate on its prices as could be done with other commodities.


The starchy tuberous root crop once very common, now almost disappearing due to the abusive and unsustainable use of chemicals is not as affordable as before in markets within Yaounde as recounted by buyers. The minimum amount for cocoyam is FCFA 1.000 in the Acacias market which is quite expensive for some house wives. Traders noted the food item is so scarce that even sellers find it hard to locate farmers who can sell in wholesale. A basin of cocoyam ranges from FCFA 10.000 and above. This commodity is used in cooking dishes like ekwang, kwacoco and could also serve as complement to other dishes.
