Over 500 mobile toilets to be installed in Douala ahead of CHAN 2021, AFCON 2022

The Douala City Council has made it a priority to make available 500 public mobile toilets before the commencement of two of Africa’s biggest football tournaments in 2021 and 2022.

These toilets are going to serve the influx of persons that will come into the city of Douala due to the competitions and equally serve the people of the economic capital long after the competitions end.

The city of Douala has often been criticised for its lack of public facilities such as toilets and public trash cans which has made the town to be considered one of the filthiest cities in Cameroon.

To achieve this, the Douala City Council has launched an appeal to economic operators to financially assist in the provision of these mobile latrines.

The city of Douala has just over 40 mobile toilets that carter for the needs of more than four million people.

In relation to the upcoming competitions too, the city of Douala is equally carrying out numerous infrastructural projects expected to be complete and ready to host the continental football tournaments.

Road networks and accommodation facilities are being given particular attention.

The CHAN and the AFCON were expected to be held in Cameroon in April 2020 and January 2021 respectively, but were unanimously moved a year later by CAF due to the corona virus pandemic on the African continent.
