Initially scheduled for April this year, the 4th general census of the Cameroonian population could not take place. Worse, it now appears clear that the operation will not also be launched in the coming months.
This was revealed by the Minister of Economy, Alamine Ousmane Mey, according to whom the first hurdle was linked to insecurity, particularly the unrest in Anglophone regions. According to the ministry’s internal sources, a second reason is the constraints imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), as part of its three-year program with the country, which do not allow, for the time being, to include this population census in priorities.
