While identifying the most recent case being the November 2021 fire incident at the Nkwen Market that claimed several shops, the board members reflected on better ways to prevent the sad incidence from occurring in 2022. 

From the suggestions made, the standout and adopted point was the purchase and installation of smoke detectors in vonelable areas of the City like markets. 
Several fire incidents have been reported across the city in the last years with much of it blamed on poor electrification. Poor storage of inflamable liquids have also been mentioned as one of the catalyst. 

4.3bn has been adopted during the session as the budget for 2022.
