dc.descriptionElsewhere in Cameroon, a new multi-storied market was built in the 1970s on the site of the old central market. It was a futuristic building and its circular form made it an architectural curiosity for quite some time. Traders fought to get stands in the market. Unfortunately, visitors balked at finding their way upstairs and preferred to do their shopping on the lower levels. Illegal vendors set up shop, as it were, on the big esplanade in front of the market building, grabbing customers as soon as they stepped out of their cars. The traders abandoned their stalls upstairs. The plots on the upper floors are dirty and smelly, and are used as storage space by the vendors from the esplanade and as home by the homeless. Down on the esplanade, business is booming and the grey concrete monster has taken on the allure of a white elephant.
