A good gesture from France if they can use these buses well then the Limbe council can buy theirs too and increase the council revenue.If not then these buses will run only for a year and we hear of bankruptcy and embezzlement.I don't want to mention the case of SOTUC buses in Douala and Yaounde after sometimes they were closed for financial difficulties.This is no doubt the first try in Limbe lets wait and see.Even though news says the buses are still at the seaport we hope they will arrive Limbe sooner before those port authorities crucify the buses with high taxes.Some customs even go as far as stealing 'taking without permission', car headlamps and other parts something they always do to cars I send home so the earlier the Limbe council clear their buses the better.

I applaud the council for providing subsidized transportation for students, and I hope that this exercise is successful! But I wonder:

1. Where does the city get parts and skilled labor to repair these buses when something goes wrong?
2. If the bus is not working for some reason, do the pupils lose their fare money?
3. Will the city sell tickets only for the number of seats or will they allow two hundred students on a bus designed to safely convey one hundred students?
4. Perhaps the city could give the limited places on the bus to the youngest students? A twelve-year-old has a better pair of legs than a six-year-old!

We will wait to see how this unfolds, but we will hope that it is successful!


Well, what do you know: It only took them a life time to come up with this programme that will help reduce the suffering of students in the numerous institutions of this area. To think that Limbe sits on one of the higher revenue generating areas for the country and the council could not come up with and finance such an initiative before now without a handout from The Frenchies is mindbuggling. Oh well, let's see how long it takes them to improve on or screw this one up.
