Mr Ondoa, now the new boss of Ayaba, has often criticized the way Mr Doume Zacharie, former CEO of the Ayaba hotel, administered this structure. His opposing views had long been a source of discord between him and his predecessor, to the point where the two had become, according to observers, "sworn enemies".

The appointment of Mr Ondoa as the new boss has however become a bitter pill for the former DG Doume Zacharie.

According to some sources, the former CEO would have tried in vain to oppose the appointment of the former Ayaba hotel woker to succeed him, because "he always believed that he was the only one capable to ensure the proper functioning of the hotel "specifies this source.
