Barely two months after the end of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, reports have it that 89 Afcon buses used to chauffeur the participating national teams, delegations, and other logistic teams have been reported missing.
89 Afcon Buses Missing out 90
The organizing committee had reportedly purchased 90 buses to be used during the continental showpiece, however, only one of the buses has been seen, according to L’Anecdote, a Cameroonian daily.
The bus used by the host national team, Cameroon, is the only bus that is still available. The bus was retained to be used by the Indomitable Lions for their home games. This development comes after reports surfaced that the Cameroonian government was yet to pay some of the workers of the 2021 AFCON.
It is not clear if the workers are the ones responsible for the disappearance of the 89 buses as the investigation is still ongoing. The Teranga Lions of Senegal won the 33rd edition of the tournament after beating Egypt in a penalty shootout. It was the second loss in an AFCON final in five years for The Pharaohs.
