Project Achievements of the KUMBO COUNCIL:
Liberalization Policy

In a bid to liberalize its services, thereby creating employment, the Kumbo Council, under the auspices of Mayor Njong Fonyuy Donatus has contracted some of its parks to the SEADZEM CIG company, represented by its General Manager, Mr. Lukong Pius. By this contract, the Kumbo

Council confers on SEADZEM CIG the right to manage the parks on a non-exclusive basis within the Kumbo Urban Municipality. This includes, the collection of parking fees, the collection of loading charges, and the collection of park fees. The SEADZEM CIG covers all parks within the Kumbo Municipality; namely, the Bamkika'ai Park, the Njavnyuy Park, Shangwai gate, Kikaikelaki gate and Mbah Park. Taking effect from the 14/02/004, the contract is expected to run for ten months and it is renewable.

According to the contract, the Kumbo Council shall duly punish all defaulters in the payment of dues and or other charges. Nevertheless, SEADZEM CIG reserves the right to institute legal proceedings with authorization from the Kumbo Council against the defaulting client.

In addition, the contract states that the Kumbo Council shall lend assistance to SEADZEM CIG by putting at its disposal the forces of Law and Order to help recover funds and met out punishment to defaulters, when and where necessary. Above all, SEADZEM CIG shall re-engage the Kumbo Council revenue collectors and workers and workers involved in this sector.

The Kumbo Council has plans to liberalize other services in the near future. In the same vain, the Kumbo Council, in its usual spirit of participatory approach, will allocate to each zone of the council a sum of one million Francs CFA. This shall enable these zones carry out development projects, jointly conceived and designed by the councilors of each zone and some notables. Three zones shall be randomly selected at a time, to give room for effective evaluation, after which, the next three zones shall also be randomly selected.

BACK ON BOARD:

In 1999, Mr. Puri Virendar a volunteer from CESO/SACO (Canadian Executive Services Organisation) and NGO based in Canada visited Kumbo on the request of Mayor Njong D.F. who approached him in March 1999 to make available the services of a consultant to prepare a draft "Master Plan" on which to base the future development plan of Kumbo. The aim of his study was to come out with a "Town Plan" for Kumbo to guide the Kumbo Council to base all future developments of the Town in conformity with the plan. More than a year ago, Mr. Maurice Seguin, a CESO-SACO volunteer from Canada again visited the Kumbo Council following a request from the Mayor brought forward by the Mayor Njong Fonyuy Donatus to CESO/SACO on January 24th 2003. While in Kumbo he carried out a study which implied: widening of the existing roads, design of a proper drainage system, scarification/compaction of the old roads, inspection of culverts, culvert heads, offshoots, bridges and other infrastructures and suggestions for improvements/modifications when required, field observations and descriptions of the actual traffic on these roads (that is the density of traffic, the quantity of goods transported on the roads and size of vehicles that travel on these roads), the design and installation of a gravel pad over the soil base in order to minimize the quantity of dust in the dry season and of mud in the wet season. Besides the poor condition of the road network, the domestic solid waste disposal system actually in use is in disfavor of its inhabitants. Numerous illegal garbage mounds litter many sectors and quarters of the town and concur to its poor sanitary state. Even legal dumpsites are poorly situated, improperly handled and rarely processed/treated. In the study, Mr. Maurice found out that domestic solid waste is actually one of the natural resources that is almost completely ignored and lost in the town of Kumbo. This study therefore proposed that an emphasis be put on two sources of Domestic Solid Waste. Disposal: composting of natural organic matter and recycling of artificial organic materials and inorganic scraps and glass.

In 2004 again, some four CESO-SACO volunteers from Canada visited K.C and carried out studies based on three fields; Economic Development Plan for Kumbo, carried out by Mr. Ghislain Girard, Agriculture and Forestry by, Mr. Henri Pequignot and Tourism by Vivianne Coude. In two weeks, they both made a walk around the sectors that concerned their fields after which they came out with a feasibility study, and there after presented a report with some recommendations to the council.
