Cameroon will next Tuesday (20 May) celebrate the 36th anniversary of its reunification with parades and a banquet, among other activities. The theme of the celebration will be: “Army and Nation: together for greater peace and development”. On 20 May 1972, the country’s English and French speaking provinces were unified after a referendum. This year’s celebration will be marked by civil and military parades across the country. In the capital, Yaounde, the parade will take place along the 20 May Boulevard, and will be witnessed by President Paul Biya, cabinet members, the diplomatic corps and several other personalities. An Equatorial Guinean army detachment is scheduled to take part in the parade. Later in the evening, the president will host a banquet to about 1,000 guests, mainly ministers, diplomats and representatives of UN agencies, the civil society, the army, police and political parties.
