International Relations Minister, Naledi Pandor, has again expressed concern regarding the treatment of some South African companies in Cameroon.

Earlier this year, Pandor visited the West African country where Tiger Brands and MTN reported court actions.

They also claimed that their bank accounts were illegal frozen.

In a strongly worded statement, Pandor has advised the executives of South African companies to continue pursuing legal avenues available.

In April this year, Pandor had been to Cameroon where she wanted to promote trade as well as business to business relations between the two countries.

Pandor adds that the latest development will challenge the extent and appetite for investments in the West African country.

However, the minister says she remains hopeful that the matters will be addressed positively.

Meanwhile, the department has also been briefed about challenges facing Vodacom in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
