In this regard, it is recalled that the President of Lcc initially blasted and denounced Broli and Armanti brand rice, thus calling on consumers to boycott the products of this factory. However, Kamseu Kamgaing had not yet properly conducted investigations to reach these conclusions to defeat the rice said brands.


Thus this member of the Board of Directors of Anor retracted a few days ago, and called for restraint subject to investigations that its associative network will carry out in the meantime. After investigations, says the leader of the Lcc, the leader of the Cameroonian Consumer League (Lcc) is aware of the quality of Broli and Armanti brand rice. Hence his turnaround operated within a range of days. Beyond everything, the president of the Lcc gives a press conference this afternoon in Yaoundé.


Question to deliver to the national and international press its version of the facts. Ngoss, meanwhile, remains adamant and even gave a press conference yesterday (Thursday, January 3, 2019) in his residence in Douala. History to persist and sign on the thesis of the poor quality of said rice. This political leader has, moreover, created the Broli and Armanti Collectif des membres victimes du riz.
