(Business in Cameroon) - On May 24-25, 2018, Gabriel Bengono, executive director of Société Immobilière du Cameroun, visited the sites planned to host the social housing in Maroua and Garoua in the North of Cameroon.
According to the director, the site in Maroua is 5.5 hectares at Zokok Laddeo. It should host 400 social houses. The director indicated that the studies and fund search are ongoing and the works should start soon. In Garoua, the 4.5 hectares site is located at Koleré and should host 700 houses. Apart from those sites, Société Immobilière du Cameroun wants to renovate the houses in Borno.
Let’s note that in the framework of the PLANUT, initiated a little more than two years ago by Cameroon, 800 other social houses are already being built in Garoua and Maroua. According to the ministry of housing, the physical execution rate for the PLANUT houses are 45% in Maroua and 40% in Garoua. Alliances in charge of the construction have been required to set a new planning to complete the works by August 2018.
