Ngaoundéré: High Frequency in "Native Alcohol" Consumption, a Call for Concern



In most part of Ngaoundéré, Traditional alcohol is preferred over beer or whiskey. This observation is true according to this reporter, that Traditional alcohol outlets have multiplied and are attracting everyone's attention.

A consumer shares his experience, that "in the old days, it was very difficult to know where indigenous alcohol was sold in neighborhoods. Preparation, sale and consumption were subject to strict state regulation."

But in recent times the story is different, there has been no control in this area.

"Things turned from bad to worse" Another consumer confirmed.

The proliferation of drinking spots of this liquor and points of sale has become a call for concern.
These places bring together a lot of people all day long; People of all ages, men and women. The problem is, while these new entertainment venues are gathering more people, terraces and other classic rooms are emptying of their customers.


The preference for native alcohol is because the liquor is said to be cheaper in cost. The current economic situation in Ngaoundéré has significantly eroded the purchasing power of the population.

Many beer lovers can no longer afford it. Indeed, a bottle of beer costs between 500 and 2000 francs. People therefore fall back on the traditional drink, whose bottle is negotiated between 50 and 100cfa Francs.

Given the high cost of living in Ngaoundéré, this liquor since it is easily affordable, it is produced in very large quantity and supplied almost every day.

This territory has been on the verge of a food crisis, after large quantities of maize and cassava were allocated to the alcohol brewery.

Whether the Native alcohol is fast becoming an aphrodisiac is another puzzle.

Many consumers believe in the therapeutic benefits of traditional alcohol because everyone has their own commentary to show how much this substance improves sexual performance in men in particular.
Another popular belief is that most Adamawa artisan researchers are convinced that traditional alcohol cures infections.

Used to living in the bush and drinking non-potable water, diamond diggers say they use indigenous alcohol in high doses to guard against all water-borne diseases.

Lovers of this native drink forget or ignore its harmful effects and with the observations made by this is reporter, an awareness campaign is required for this category of consumers who are ignorant of dangers that await them by consuming this often adulterated alcohol.

The Call is for the State institutions that be to strengthen its regulations in this area in order to ensure discipline and protect lives of the population.
