Bamenda, 11:15—Thousands of troops are set to begin a parade in down town Yaounde in about an hour to mark 50 years of the Cameroon military.
President Paul Biya, who is chairing the ceremony, has just arrived in Bamenda by helicopter. He speaks a little after midday following a welcome speech by the mayor (government delegate) of Bamenda.
Troops have come from all over the country to take part in foot marches. Motorcades are also expected to drive past in front of the head of state, who is chairing this ceremony for the second time in ten years.
President Biya is expected to visit a war memorial Thursday, where he is expected to unveil a monument and lay a wreath.
