B) On the resumption of activities of municipal police.
The decision to have the municipal police resume activities was agreed upon during a meeting attended by the Minister of Territorial Administration and Minister of Decentralisation and Local Development, the Mfoundi SDO, Yaounde Government delegate and other officials in charge of security.
The thirty days suspension that was handed to the municipal police for battery was immediately lifted.
The authorities agreed that since the suspension of the municipal police, more crimes have been reported in Yaounde.
Resintating the council police will reinforce discipline among traders, cut down on crimes and contain commercial bike riders.
Administrative and municipal authorities were exhorted to work together for the implementation of the orders.
