The work I'd come back to Mfou to do (a training session on scheduling and budgets) was overshadowed by the staff problems. Nonetheless I presented the new system to Germaine (who runs the hotel & kitchen) and Mde Nko (in charge of the farm & agriculture). Then I sat in on the meeting with the head administrator from YaoundÃƒÆ'Ã‚Â© and the inspector from the labor department and then an entire staff meeting regarding their rights and more specifically negotiations with the recently fired staff. It looks like they'll be paid for their seniority, even though it was under previous ownership.
