The Camwater-CDE saga

When in 2008 government decided to privatise the sector, the Moroccan based company won the bid to manage the distribution and sale of portable water in urban and semi-urban area for a ten year renewable period.
At the end of this period, the government of Cameroon decided not to renew the contract with Les Cameroonais Des Eaux .
Since the presidential decree announcing the end of activities of the Moroccan company, competent authorities have been discussing modalities for the transition to take effect 1st May 2018.
