Sacked in March 2 cabinet shakeup, the embattled minister who oversaw the operations of the juicy ministry for water and energy for many years and supervised numerous giant projects in the energy sector alongside the privatization of SNEC when he was DG has been caught in a web of multiple corruption charges alongside some close collobaroators.

Soon after he was sacked, news came in on the arrests of former CAMWATER boss Jean William Sollo who replaced him as DG of  CAMWATER amidst heighten charges of corruption which trails all former DGs of the company including Alphonse Roger Ondoa Akoa who spent only 21 months at the helm. The mister was reportedly in hiding as security forces scramble to get hold of him to answer to charges at the special criminal court in Yaoundé.

Minister Basile Atnaga Kouna was banned from leaving the country since Thursday 8th March, just six days after his firing from the ministry he is being accused of stolen state money from.

Ever since he was prohibited from leaving the country so that he can make himself available to answer to charges against him, the minister went missing amidst massive manhunt. The wife is said to have told security officers days earlier that he had travelled to sea side town of Kribi even though his whereabouts could not be traced in that town when security forces stormed the town

But it is news of his planned escape which has shocked many and filed the newspapers stands. How on earth DR. Basile left the country with a travel ban hanging over his head is a massive question for the country’s security forces and administrators.
