Douala: Alice Magedjio has been dismissed as head of management at Marche mboppi for alleged corruption

A new interim body has been put in place by the Government Delegate of the Douala city council to pilot the affairs of Marche mboppi, the largest market in the Central African sub region.

Martine Ledjio and her team have been commissioned by the city's administrator Dr Fritz Ntone Ntone following a storming meeting at the court yard of the market Tuesday March 21. The change is coming on the heels of an alleged scandal which has rocked the market for years.

Justifying his decision to remove Alice Magedjio as the coordinator, the Government Delegate
explained that the former Coordinator has been involved in a fraudulent network which has caused the city council billions of francs CFA  in loses.

Alice Magedjio has been placed before the police for investigations. It is rumoured that some of the market projects are said to have been realized with fake documents produced as back up, whereas the situation on the ground is different. Money is alleged to have exchanged hands in order to hide the scam.

Quizzed on the allegations, Alice Magedjio has expressed disappointment insisting that there is ploy to get her off her position. She however says that she is confident the investigations will not incriminate her.
