Brewery giants Union Camerounaise Brasserie, has offered two-millions FCFA to each surviving member of the Cameroon team that participation in the 1972 Africa Cup of Nations tournament on home soil.
Emmanuel Mve and the rest of his mates were at the UCB headquarters for the event this Friday.
According to our findings Michel Kaham and the rest of his eleven colleagues still alive recieved the cash on Friday.
50 years after their semi-final defeat to Congo Republic and the third-place finish will recieve more financial compensation.
The move from UCB comes at a time many had been clamouring to have the only other generation that played the AFCON involved in the competition as a show of appreciation for their efforts the only other time Cameroon was host of the competition.
Ten of the 22 players of the 1972 competition under the guidance of coach Peter Schnittger are deceased while twelve of them are alive.
Jean Paul Akono, Paul Nlend, Bernard MBengalack, Michel Kaham, Emmanuel Mvé, Joseph Yebga Maya, Moutassie Jean Jean Pierre Tokoto, Appollin Simo, Bekombo François, Léa Eyoum Charles and Jean Manga Onguene are expected to pick thier package.
Unfortunately the likes of Eteme Emmanuel,Paul Gaston Ndongo, Phillippe Mouthé, Essombé Moise, Egoué Zacharie, Jean Baptiste Ndoga, Jean Marie Tsebo, Evou Gustave, Bassanguen Dieudonné and former skipper Owona Norbert who Eto’o supported enormously in his last days on earth will not make the occasion as they are deceased.
