In the early 1900’s during World War I, the Cameroon army were shipped to assist the Europeans in combat. Cameroon was later invaded and colonize by both Britain and France.

Today, the country is facing major challenges to keep up with the Western world infrastructure development systems such as Expansion of Roads, Water supplies, Light, Drainage systems and manufacturing companies.
