Already three weeks that Cameroon is hosting the African football cup of Nations, a sports competition already at its 33rdedition.
By risking a point of the mid-term security situation, nowhere does it appear that this major event was disrupted by any incident directly or distantly related to terrorist threats recorded in certain points of our national territory, including those hosting a good number of encounters.
Such a scenario could only perplex even the most optimistic of observers, especially those who have not joined their voices in the heart of the catastrophic omens.
Obviously, the achievement of such a result could not be the result of chance alone, as logic dictates that the atmosphere of security in which the 33rdAfrican Cup of Nations is being held is the result of measures taken by the public authorities, measures implemented by the Defence and Security Forces, in composite with the population, in the inviolable respect of the Army-Nation diptych a tangible manifestation of Popular Defence.
In this register and with regard to the visible device, we note the reinforcement of border controls, the permanence and the multiplication of identity checks, without forgetting the presence of the Forces for the Maintenance of Order in the places of crowds, among other detection and preventive actions.
The same logic would dictate, all in all, that a window, however narrow, be left open to the possibility, however small, of a renewal of patriotism on the part of the seditious elements who, despite the factual contingencies, and while claiming an imaginary nationality, nevertheless remain aware of being above all Cameroonians.
