Demonstration Alert – U. S. Embassy Yaounde Cameroon

Location:  Yaounde

Event:  The Embassy informs U.S. citizens of the likelihood of a political rally at the Omnisport Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium and its vicinities on Saturday, November 2, 2019.  Since permission for this rally has been denied, there could be an increased law enforcement presence and possible violence.

Actions to Take:

  • Avoid the Omnisport Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium and surrounding neighborhoods on Saturday, November 2.
  • Avoid large gatherings and demonstrations, as even peaceful demonstrations   may quickly turn violent.
  • Monitor local news stations.
  • Remain aware of your surroundings and keep a low profile.
  • Always carry proof of your legal presence in Cameroon, such as a U.S. passport with visa, or a residency card. Since Cameroon does not recognize dual citizenship, U.S. citizens of Cameroonian descent should never attempt to use a Cameroonian passport or identification card.
