The Association of Cameroonians in Göteborg, Sweden (Assocaborg), organized an end of year party on the 31st December 2012 in Mölndal, Gothenburg to crown the activities of the year 2012 and usher in that of the New Year 2013. This also happens to be day when new executive members take their oath of office.
It was a very simple occasion that begins with a family dinner for all members and guests present, followed by some choreography presented by James Ngoh dancing to a lovely tune by Defao – “Amour Scolaire” (music from the Democratic Republic of Congo). Skandik Afrik was present to cover the night and this time around had lovely gift bags (Goodiebags) to present to members of the association and those who came early for the party.
At midnight, we ushered in the New Year by popping champagne and wishing all present a prosperous year 2013. On New Year day proper, 1st January 2013, the new executive body of the association was sworn in. They consist of Jude Nkeme (President), Stacy Egbe (Vice President), Rosa Emambu (Treasurer), Mathias Tenti (Public Relations Officer), and Scott Titang (Adviser).
After the swearing in ceremony, all those present were treated to lovely music from almost every region of the world. We were also very pleased to have a large contingent of Angolans in Gothenburg present during our end of year festivities. The President of the Angolan Association in Gothenburg, Jean Mabiala was also on hand to witness the handing over ceremony.
