“At this moment when our country surpasses five thousand COVID-19 cases with about 171 deaths, permit me announce my intensification of the Solidarite_Covid-19_237 initiative on the national territory,”
“… The vehicle allowance that I will receive will be redirected to this initiative in order to bring more comfort to the population, victims of this ruthless pandemic”. Hon Nourane Fotsing disclosed.
