A bitter conflict has erupted between the Minister of Transport and the new Board Chair of the Cameroon Airline Corporation, Camair-Co barely a month after their installation.
The conflict has raised the question as to who is the boss in Camair- Co; Minister Mebe Ngo’o, or the Board Chairperson, Mefiro Oumarou?
Both Mebe Ngo’o and Mefiro Oumarou allegedly lobbied to be appointed to the post of Board Chair of Camair-Co. Mefiro was finally appointed.
Mefiro’s appointment was however, surrounded by a number of controversies.
Beside the issue of accumulation of functions by a member of Government, there was also the controversy in appointing as Board Chairman, somebody who is the Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Transport.
Observers immediately saw the complication in the Minister of Transport dealing with Camair-Co, when the Minister Delegate is Board Chair.
