The Kribi Sea port though shredded with controversy is another port that will ease the congestion witnessed at the Douala Water port. The Kribi Seaport was primarily constructed for the Chadian Crude oil to be transported via oil pipes, from Duba to Kribi. The Kribi Sea port stands a heavy risk becoming another white elephant project that will ridicule Cameroon.
Its inaugural is slated for the 1st of March 2018 by the Minister Delegate in charge of Transport. The port was constructed by a joint Chinese and French Tagged Cma-Cgm and group Bollare and another Chinese company tagged Chec. The Kribi Sea port stands to be a total misadventure because it was constructed without any exemplary environmental Impact analysis and comparing other projects of such magnitude in neighboring countries.
Nigeria has enlarged its Seaport facilities in Lagos, Calabar, Libreville in Gabon, Point Noir in Congo Brazzaville and Bata in Equatorial Guinea. All the Central African Countries formerly were making use of the Douala Seaport as a transit port for their goods.
Today the paradigm has changed but LA Republique Du Cameroun didn't have the clairvoyance to see and make alternative arrangements.
