Who will finance the maintenance of the stadiums once Cameroon's African Cup of Nations (AFCON) is over? Headed by Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, the powerful ... secretary-general of the presidency, the task force in charge of organising the African Cup of Nations has sent Paul Biya to begin a project for the management of sports infrastructures once the competition is over.
During a congressional hearing on US-Africa policy on Wednesday, Molly Phee, the assistant secretary of state for African affairs announced that she will dispatch her deputy, Michael Gonzales, to Conakry this week. Gonzales is carrying a letter to Prime Minister Mohamed Beavogui, a former civil servant who was installed by the military in October.
Phee said she also met with Ambassador Kerfalla Yansane in Washington on Tuesday.
“The purpose of both of these engagements,” Phee told Congress, “was to talk to the transitional government of the importance of moving forward in the coming year to set an electoral calendar and to get Guinea back on track in terms of its return to democracy.”
