Eric Melet President of Bollore African Railways has accused authorities for validating the decision taken by Camrail to run the overloaded train that derailed in Eseka on Oct. 21st 2016.

Eric Melet spoke while paying tributes to the victims yesterday Oct. 25th 2016. He said at the pressure of Minister Mebe Ngo'o, Camrail took the decision to increase the length of the train, which the Minister validated.

This same Minister who had said that Camrail single handedly decided to add additional coaches  to the  Intercity train. "Camrail decided to add 8 addititional coaches to the train. They left with more than one thousand passengers. They confirmed that it was not the first time they are running on overload". Mebo Ng'o declared earlier to the media.

Bollore's President also added that the speed of the overloaded train which was running at 80 km per hour also played a big role in the train's derailment. 

"The high speed of the train close to the station in Eseka  is clearly one of  causes of the derailment. There are any other things that can happen on the tracks of the rails(...) which needs to be analysed before saying more". Bollore's President declared..

77.4% of Camrail's shares belongs to Bollore, 13.5% to the State, 5.3% to Total and 3.8%  belongs to SEBC(Group Thanry
