Camel Race – Course de Chameaux

The health workers are on strike because the government wants to take away some of their benefits. The health workers started this strike yesterday and will go on until tomorrow. The reason behind taking these benefits away is that this governments states that it doesn’t have enough money. I know, you are probably wondering what this has to do with camel races… Well, the Chadians are accusing the government and its leaders (wink wink) to use some of that money to organize camel races in some villages. That is the word on the streets! I could only find a few videos from previous years when these races are organized internationally in Africa. Apparently, it is a big deal! This video is in Niger.

Les agents de santé sont en grève depuis hier parce que le gouvernement veut supprimer certains de leurs avantages financiers. Ils ont commencé hier et termineront demain. La raison pour cette suppression est que le gouvernement dit ne pas avoir assez d’argent. Je sais, quel est le rapport avec les courses de chameaux ? Eh bien, le bruit qui court et que les dirigeants de ce gouvernement (clin d’œil) utilisent une partie de cet argent pour organiser des courses de chameaux dans certains villages. Je n’ai pu trouver que quelques vidéos lorsque ces courses sont organisées internationalement en Afrique. C’est toute une histoire !
