‘Danfo’ Drivers In Yaounde
There are no danfo mini-buses in Yaounde but the taxi drivers here ensure that you are reminded constantly of Lagos with their reckless driving in their mostly decrepit cars. The drivers are largely alright until they get to intersections or roundabouts and then they go haywire. They all seem to believe that they can make turns or overtake anytime they feel like it; the other motorists don’t matter.
Incidentally, the cabs are painted in yellow like Lagos danfo, and they also drive on the left side of the road like in Nigeria.
Young Cameroonians love their football as much as young Nigerians, if what I have seen in Yaounde in my first full day here is anything to go by.
Also, in a park apparently designed for relaxation just behind the stadium in the Fandena Quarters, the concrete surface was seen as fair game as young men played some intense football, tackles flying as if they were trialling for spots in the Canon Yaounde squad.

No, NEPA or EKDC does not operate here but that does not mean there are no power cuts in Yaounde.
