Cameroon-Yaounde: Door to door business, a phenomenon to worry about

The theft at the homes of Yaounde residents, has become alarming than one could ever imagine. This thieving phenomenon, is attributed to people who do door to door businesses.


Young guys are now seen in their numbers, moving about in quarters, looking for someone who might solicit their services. It could be to mend shoes or a dress.

Many of them take this as an opportunity to break into houses, when they notice the owners are not there.

A police officer of the Yaouonde 1 police district, revealed to us that a good number of theft cases reported to them, are related to these guys who move from door to door.

Some of them even have spare keys with them, which they use to open doors of houses, when they notice no one is around. Those who have witnessed such situations say these men go out to work  during periods of the day when they are sure most people have gone to work.

Public authorities have proven to be powerless in the face of these happenings.

What makes things worse is the growing presence of Key duplication. It is now common to find people who duplicate keys just in any locality of Yaounde. This is where the door to door business men go to get their spare keys.

Joblessness is what prompts youths to get into such activities in order to make a living. In a country like Cameroon, where the old want sit on every opportunity that could serve youths, there is likely to be an increase in theft.
