Here comes Christmas!
What a beautiful day!
Jesus was born!
What a great love!
Since the very first moments of this December 25, the song has been pushed with passion everywhere by our dear children of today and is even hummed, with hearts full of hope, by the children of yesterday that we are.
Passion for those who expect the generosity, source of joy from Father Christmas, hope for those who attach virtues ... to Christmas. Innocent or mature, all aspire to peace, so fought for these days that we have to defend with the weapons of war.
With the Christmas party, Cameroon has just taken the third stage of a very exceptional festive period; a period inaugurated by the visit of the country of Mollah, the mascot of the 33rd edition of the African Cup of Nations of Football. The journey was followed closely by the departure of the first term school holidays.
Religious passion linked to the celebration of Christmas, the happiness of entering the New Year, the sporting excitement of the AFCON, are the events, which punctuate and will in turn mark out the crucial weeks to come.
Moments of renewal, socialization and fraternization, that each of us will deserve to savour in its fullness, the prerequisite however difficult is necessary.
In particular, by remaining conscious behind the wheel of your vehicle, which will remain in control when stationed and in motion, thus avoiding turning it into a vehicle of mass destruction.
Likewise in front of the mounds of food and the quantity of alcoholic foam, indigestion and drunkenness being among the causes of sometimes-serious accidents.
However, in these days of festive intoxication, at least two aspects remind us of our total consciousness. It is about our health, which should in no way be sacrificed on the altar of conviviality, at the risk of seeing COVID-19 and its myriad of avatars take advantage of it to proliferate not only to the detriment of the health of the people.
It is Cameroon as a whole that would suffer the prejudice of collective carelessness.
In fact, just a few days away, from the kick-off of the great African football raid enjoying a global impact, the health status of our country or rather the health behaviour of its population is under close surveillance. The conclusions that will be drawn will depend on the number of visitors to Cameroon as well as the level of occupancy of our stadiums. Would it not then be infinitely regrettable that our beautiful sports enclosures come to ring hollow, at the precise moment of stamping with the bounces and bounces of the round ball, neglecting to respect the barrier measures? So let's agree that this would be the most shocking situation in the land of the Indomitable Lions.
