“We are very satisfied with our visit to Camtel. This shows the strong relations that exist between my country and Cameroon. We came to Cameroon on a study trip and our school trains its interns on various domains like public management, public contracts and administration. This visit to Camtel falls in line with our training,” Brigadier General Elumba Monga Likumbu Ghislain Myriam Rogers said

Our presence at CAMTEL demonstrate the excellent relationship between our two countries as well as the armed forces of the DRC and Cameroon, he added.
