With the fulfillment of the 30-year-old promise made to Cameroon’s 1990 FIFA World Cup heroes edging closer, Cameroon’s Minister of Sports and Physical Education payed an inspection visit to the houses ahead of the official handing over ceremony.
Prof. Narcisse MOUELLE KOMBI was on the ground to have a first look at the 22 fully furnished apartments in Yaoundé.
The Minister of Sports and Physical Education was accompanied by the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Celestine Ketcha Cortez.
The handing over ceremony is scheduled for August 27, 2020 in Yaoundé with the players and or their families expected to receive the much awaited gifts.
After Cameroon’s heroic performances in the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, President Paul Biya promised each member of the 22 man squad for the expedition a house.
It took 30 years and a letter of reminder from the players led by Bertin Ebwellé, for the promise to be fulfilled.
Three members of the the team, Louis Paul Mfede, Massing Benjamin and most recently captain Stephen Tataw died while waiting.
The nature, quality and location of the houses have led to mixed feelings amongst the players, with some like Albert Roger Milla claiming that they are not up to standard, while others like Bertin Ebwellé are full of appreciation.
