The first chapter of the golden jubilee of Cameroon’s Defence forces will be played out on Bamenda’s Commercial Avenue, the city’s main business hub.
A grand stand with one thousand sitting places is now receiving its final coat of paint. A military parade to be watched by thousands in the chief town of the North-West region will give the kick-off of the 50th Anniversary celebrations. A joint military operation dubbed Operation Golden Lion will feature a hostage release, by commandos backed by an air support team on thursday at the Bafut airport, where a military exhibition will take place.
The Bamenda-Bafut airport is taking the shape of a carnival ground. All branches of the defence forces will exhibit their know-how in these tents.The Bamenda Congress hall that will host more than one state dinner during the celebrations has also been re-looked. The gutters outside cleaned by the city council and the fountain is set to jet out a fresh display of water for the pleasure of the guests awaited here.
