Atanga Kouna denies being involved in embezzlement of 200 billion FCFA

Minister of water and Energy, Basile Atanga Kouna, says his hands are clean in a case wherein he is accused of swindling 200 billion FCFA, money which was meant for the development of water schemes in Yaounde so as to reduce water shortage. The State's man was recently called up at the Presidency of the Republic to give his own part of the story.

The La Republic Minister is suspected to have over budgeted the project which was in his charge, so as to have a swell in his bank accounts. The project was estimated to cost 450 million dollars but it was discovered that, the figures had shifted right up to 800 million dollars.

Cameroon is said to have made available just 15% of the money needed, that is 125 million dollars, 86 billion in FCFA. Even at that level, nothing has been done on the project since January 2017. But rather, the sum of 1 billion Fcfa has been spent on the construction of parking lots, and tracks for Biya's helicopter. 

Till date, the population is facing water crisis. A good number of them have contracted water borne diseases such as typhoid and some even die, while morons of the dictatorial regime embezzle money whenever it wills them.
