Organizers and delegates attending the Mvet cultural festival in the South region have been treated to a guided tour of the borders between Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon.
The visit took them to cross roads between the three countries and a ride on the borderline. The tour was part of the Mvet oyeng cultural activities that seek to encourage the spirit of living together and familiarisation between the inhabitants and officials of these zones.
Cameroon and Gabon share a common boundary at Eking situated some 27kms from Abam in the South region of Cameroon. The Ntem River is a natural boundary that divides both countries. The Ntem Bridge connects to the first village of Gabon from Cameroon known as Eboro which is 33kms from the Bitam chieftaincy.
The mayors of Ebibeyim, in Equatorial Guinea, Abam in Cameroon and Bitam in Gabon work in collaboration to ensure good transborder relations.
The delegation also visited the cross road between the three CEMAC countries at Kye Ossi. The zone of three frontiers in kye ossi serves as a point of integration and transborder trade between the CEMAC countries.
Ekang elits found in Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Congo are friendly and welcoming to each other.
They carry out socio economic activities such as trade and inter marriages and keep good family ties.
The Mvet Oyeng cultural festival is another occasion to come together, strengthen family ties, reinforced interaction and development within their respective countries.
