The root cause of the bike-rider strike in Yaounde.
Written by Boris Ndicho on 12 November 2019
The Yaounde bike-riders disagree with the decree signed by the governor of the center region banning bikes from going to the central town. The decree stipulates that all bikes are to end their journeys at EMIA junction
Tension mounted and the bike riders stormed some carrefours like that of Etoug–ebe and MEC protesting for the decree to be revised. They are equally in demand that the governor should restrict taxis from circulating in zones specially designed for for bikes.
Workers could be seen trekking to their various work places since the roads were all blocked , police had to intervene immediately and tear gassed the area which the toxicity drove the angry bike-riders.
There is little calm in the area while waiting on the governor to take a rapid measure. It should be noted that Bamenda witnessed same case as a decree was passed banning bike men from carrying two persons on a bike. The town is operation one passenger per bike. Thanks for reading .
