The forest area is also plagued by disease-carrying mosquitoes and blackflies (blackfly) that keep settlers away. Yaoundé, capital of Cameroon, is at the heart of the Centre, drawing people from the rest of the country to live and work there. The Centre's towns are also important industrial (industry) centres, especially for timber. Agriculture is another important economic factor, especially with regard to the province's most important cash crop, cocoa (Cocoa bean).

This often leads herders to never kill their animals, however, and to keep sick animals alive for fear of losing a portion of one's net worth. Nevertheless, many Fulbe herders transport their cattle to the big markets of Yaoundé and Douala for sale (some make it as far as Gabon and Congo (Republic of the Congo)).

The club was formed in 1930 and play their games at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo. Their most successful period was in the 1970s and 1980s when they were a dominant force in Cameroonian and African football, winning eight national championships (MTN Elite One), eight Cameroonian Cups, three African Champions' Cups (CAF Champions League) and one African Cup Winners' Cup. founded 1974 ground Omnisports Ahmadou-Ahidjo Yaoundé, Cameroon capacity 38,720 Kalara Club of Yaoundé''' are a football (soccer) club based in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

Among the club's most notable players have been the African player of the Century Roger Milla, Rigobert Song and the former FIFA World Player of the Year, Liberian George Weah. I recently saw an old Florida schoolbus drive in Maastricht (the Netherlands). You know, the ones that look like they'd tip over backwards if too many people would sit in the back (I bet lots of US schoolkids have tried this :) ). How does a bus like that end up across the ocean? I've also seen old English doubledeckers, but it's rather a shorter distance across the channel. When in the US, I thought about sending the car I had bought there home by ship, but that turned out way too expensive (can't remember the price now). So wouldn't this be very uneconomical? Or would people spend a lot of money to own an 'oddity' like this? Ironically, in Cuba I saw Dutch buses. It turns out the Netherlands donated 1500 buses to Cuba. Speak of inefficiency. Florida buses get sent to the Netherlands and Dutch buses get sent to Cuba, which is just a raft's hop away from Florida (ok, that's a sick joke :) ). DirkvdM (User:DirkvdM) 15:13, 20 January 2006 (UTC) :I don't have an answer for you, but I just wanted to add that an American schoolbus somehow ended up in Cameroon, too. It was used to transport paying customers from Yaoundé to Bertoua. It even had the retractable stop signs on the sides! Very odd indeed where these decommissioned buses end up. — BrianSmithson (User:BrianSmithson) 15:32, 20 January 2006 (UTC) In September 2000 a controversy arose involving the distribution of a Plantu drawing showing Jacques Chirac copulating with a sleeping Marianne.

Another installation opened that year at the French Arts center in Yaoundé, Cameroun.
