Cameroonian security officials have signed a surveillance agreement with Chinese company Huawei, geared at the installation of surveillance cameras across the country.
After launching a citizen campaign to denounce suspects in the neighbourhoods, and as part of the fight against terrorism, Cameroon security officials and Huawei, are now bound by a convention to generalize the installation of surveillance cameras across the country.
Douala and Yaoundé, the main metropolises that already benefit from a network of electronic surveillance, will see their capacities strengthen.
Other cities of the country will also benefit from the same system. The objective, according to the State, is to facilitate the fight against armed robbery and terrorism.
