Manaouda Malachie, public health minister sends Maurice Kamto to present his coronavirus gifts to Atanga Nji Paul.
On Thursday April 30, 2020, the minister of Public Health published a press release which he refused the gift of Maurice Kamto.
The president of the Survie-Cameroon-Survival Initiative (SCSI) management committee Christian Penda Ekoka received a letter from the Public Health minister.
This donation to be offered to the Cameroon government consist of 10,000 barrier masks, 6,800 surgical masks and 950 screening tests for health authorities.
Olivier Bibou Nissack, spokesperson for Maurice Kamto and member of the SCSI team described it as “scandal”.
Public Health minister rejected the donation of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement party of Maurice Kamto.
On this note, asked Kamto and his team to contact the services of Paul Atanga Nji, Minister of Territorial Administration.
” I have the honor, in accordance with the legal provisions relating to the call for public generosity, and those relating to the freedom of association in Cameroon , to invite you to please contact the Minister of Territorial Administration, with a view to using your donation for the benefit of the government in the fight against COVID-19 “ , the minister wrote.
Ever since Maurice Kamto launched the “Survie Cameroun Survival Initiative“, it has been a nightmare to the MINAT boss, Paul Atanga Nji.
To MINAT, the association created by Maurice Kamto is not recognized and has no legal existence by the authorities.
Atanga Nji Paul had asked Maurice Kamto to close the account of the initiative created to raise funds for the purpose of helping fight against COVID-19.
Recently, MINAT contacted MTN Cameroon and Orange Cameroon, mobile telephone operators to freeze the funds in their respective Mobile Money and Orange Money accounts.
He also asked for the accounts of the SCSI with these mobile operators to be closed.
Human right lawyer and civil society activist Agbor Balla on his official Facebook page had called on the government to put aside political differences with political parties to collectively fight against the COVID-19.
