Is there anything surprising about Cameroon's position? I do not think so. Everything in Cameroon is voodoo-styled: not just economics. This country is a potential volcano. Only time will tell.

rexon

The bitter truth is, La Republique is a very devilish country and all those who dont want to accept this are merely wasting their time. I have said in this forum time and again that our poor families back home are living in hell and we need to do all we can to protect them. The rich and evil class involving the offsprings of the Angwafors, the Muna's, the Inoni's, endeley's, Ndeh's, Njeuma's, Ncho's, etc are just there to protect the system to satisfy their evil intentions.

In La Republique, there are no laws, no functioning security services, no judiciary, no business laws, no social services, no educational facilities, etc. It is just a living hell. But we see bandits masquerading as ministers, businessmen, etc coming everyday from their hideouts in La Republiques corrupt junta in Yaounde to lie to us. They always have stories to tell us about development, about the future, etc. The earlier we fight to eliminate these terrorists, the better.

Cameroon Airlines Leads The Way As The First Airline To Migrate To A Sita Ip-Based Network Solution In Central And West Africa.

Riccardo,

What is Cameroon Airlines? Do you mean the state carrier? It is a state carrier and not a business! Has it ever made a profit or cleared arrears for its workers? Have all roof leaks at its hub at Douala airport been repaired? It is a shame.

It is not the dress you wear that defines you but the contents of your character. Sita ip my foot.

Mbu.B

Riccardo
CAADIM,

May I ask the meaning of what you just pasted..can you really talk about Cameroon Airlines? If YES, what would you say about it?

About GOVERNANCE, it's really the least surprising thing.
Paul Biya is the worst thing that ever happened to Cameroon and Cameroonians from whatever consideration.

A country where ministers in disgrace must be made Chairman,BOD at important state institutions instead of paying for their crimes.

How can AHIDJO take 23yrs to build Cameroon and BIYA takes 24yrs to be painting the structures the former built?

He keeps pumping money to construct his present safety and retirement;using the army and secret cults from abroad.A president whose desire is just to be president for as long as possible.No plans as to what direction the country is taking in any aspect. Just politicking every thing.

All the most important things Cameroon boasts of as infrastructure were constructed by AHIDJO, be it airport,roads,hospitals,stadia.
The junta spin masters always blame it on world economic crisis. The only improvement we saw since the econ crisis ended was his purchase of a costly fifth-handed private jet and the privitization of the forest in the eastern province to Franck Biya and his Paris friends.

Concerned Cameroonians should pray for a miracle that would see this junta washed away quickly.As long as they stay, there's no hope.

Ebonylad

Hello Riccardo your article is informative but not so objective or better still constructive.Poor governance is not about Francophone - Anglophone divide.You cannot hold that poor governnace in Camr is an aspect of Francophonism because Zimbabwe is an Anglosaxon country.If a sample survey is carried out in a typical English speaking beaureacracy eg a local council in Ndian,the result will be same as in Mvilla division.Cameroon is one,French or English.Before condominium by 1917,we were not divided.European wars of 1914 should not divide our nationalistic identity.
You and me are actors and victims of the poor governance because governance is of you and me ,by you and me and for you and me.The regime is corrupt just like the grassroot.
All we need is to study strategies of overcoming such situations.Learn from other nations.Pray for a Divine intervention and we shall grow.Counter accusations are not helpful.Vivre le Cameroun,Long live Cameroon.

Riccardo is a distraction on this burning issue.

Fellow Cameroonians, no amount of talking or censuring will change the situation of our country. What we need is action. I am always ready to contribute the little I can to see that the Biya regime a thing of the past. Our people are really suffering under this regime. Absence of war does not necessarily mean peace.

If we do not start to mount pressure now, things will even be worst after Biya. What I mean is that if we don´t fight to see Biya hand power to a democratically elected president, Biya out of shame will hand power to his own prepared successor who will continue with the bad policies we see today. In addition his successor will be one who will do everything to cover the regimes atrocities.

In summary, the worst thing that will happen to Cameroon is if Cameroonians allow Biya to hand power to someone of his choice.

sangomonie

In as much as I believe Cameroon is a very corupt country, I believe in the media reporting the facts. Cameroons CPI changed from 2.2 to 2.3 from 05 to 06 showing an increase of 0.1. Now, I'm not saying this is good at all or that I support the government, if anything I strongly condemn the Biya regime for promoting, no for PROMOTING corruption. The media however, is not doing any one favors by distorting the news, in some ways, it is being as corrupt as the gov't itself which I guess is true.

IMF AID Junky like LRC invariably ends up in these manners.What good could come out from a laissez-fair imperium,manned by a tribal Zaibatsu?If the Essingan tribal thugs becomes above the State and its Institutions,what could we expect?And by Extension Illegally and forcibly Annexing Ambazonia,(Former UN Trust Territory of the Southern Cameroons).

Ebonylad,
if Cameroun was one before condominium,then,you will have to go get Chad, CAR,Gabon,Congo Brazza,.Nothing was existing like "La République Du Cameroun before 1st January 1960.History and facts says so,to the best of my science.

Has anyone read the captions of all the headlines in the Cameroon news papers for the past few weeks???
"Kumbo council accused of embezzling 500 million FCFA", "Director of Buea hospital accused of embezzling funds meant for an X-ray device, "US Ambassador Says Corruption Scares Investors From Cameroon", " Bar Exams And The Non-respect Of The Rule Of Law", "Kupe Muanenguba CPDM Qualifies Biya's Rule As Reference Book", "Absence Of Accountability, Transparency Plagues Douala Council - New Gov't Delegate", "Une journaliste agressée dans son lit" etc.
THose are some of the headlines hiting cameroon news this past two weeks.
Which of those stories looks good news.
Cameroon is total hell.
The madness about it is the two extremes in the cameroonian community.
- People with very big cars/houses whose salaries for twenty years can not buy those cars even without taxes and living expenses and a second group
- those with extreme poverty who cannot even afford to buy a cup of rice to keep them living for a day or day who cannot afford a little of tap water for 10 FCFA as they have absolutely no means.
Another group involves unqualified workers "jobing" while qualified inhabitants and patriots are "chomaging" the streets with thorn dresses. I was in total distress when i saw an old friend of mine with thorn dresses, just as a result of acute and sustained stress, poverty and frustration after graduating from the university with a upper second class degree.
What are you going to characterise that country. I think 138th is a better position. Cameroon is worst than that. Everything in Cameroon is bad governance, corruption and mismanagement. Those who can border to manage are sacked. A typical case being that of Benjamin Amama. Not a reference but atleast a spectacular patriot but the country hates anyone who could be reasonable.
The administration is characterised by cowards both at home and elsewhere with its diplomas.
A typical case is that of the late ambassador of BENELUX. This woman has been there for over 15 years, is now Belgian and I know Cameroon is not a dual national state, never borders to think if Cameroonians existed in Belgium. Yet she's a Cameroon President in Belgium. I don't know if the embassy in Belgium knows for once how many LEGAL Cameroonians leave in belgium. An embassy which has no embassy card yet the person incharge is allowed to rule and dye.
I hear Prof. Ferdinand Oyono is now "ministerin"' at home.Does Cameroon has a retiring age?? A minister who ministers his ministry on a sick bed. Is everbody in Cameroon disabled. It was a similar case with Mbella Mbappe who was "Parkinsoning" when allowed to stand and talk on his own. The list is extensive.
What a country.
I'm sure the americans have favoured Cameroon position. The case in cameroon is beyond quantification and classification.
I hope those who have the authority read this and see what others think about their country.

Ma Mary, AGREED!We have to step up effort and Tell it with a shrill tone even.The NOISE need to be Elevated.I just thought of one DR Odine who have once been dynamic on this board.She is missing.Hope she will come back.The ENEMY seems resourceful,since they still lay hands over our resources.Their GLOBAL LAWYERS are invariably there,the Sangomonies,Ebonies lad,etc.
Have a bless day.

Dear Patriots,

I am glad some of those who have always behaved and written unpatriotic comments here are beginning to reason with us.
Cameroon is sick.. very sick. We must all unite to find a cure.
Our Prime Minister Chief Inoni is a leading force for a change in our Country.
Let's join him end encourage all Patriots in our Country to stand up to eradicate the forces of evil in our Country.
Stay the course... We shall overcome...

May God bless and united and strong Republic of Cameroon.

Mutengene: Massive desertion in police ranks!
Source: http://www.camerounlink.net/fr/news.php?nid=26122 (French)

Close to 1,000 admitted policemen into training quit the instruction center. Problems of water and poor nutrition [are] at the roots of their involuntary departure.
Dominique Ndocki
Recently nominated following texts signed by the president of the Republic, the new officials are gradually taking up their duties. From the central services, the delegate general for National Security, Mr. Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o, criss-crosses the four corners of the country to proceed with the installation of some of his assistants. Installations that unfold at the moment when the phenomenon of urban insecurity seems to have [resurged] in the big cities of Douala, Yaoundé, Garoua, Maroua…. We hope as much that the installed bosses will bring a new dynamism in the governments’ crusade against insecurity; even if we deplore thru speeches the lack of personnel, [and] equipment not forgetting the unreliability of certain policemen who [aggravate] the situation with repeated acts of racketeering and corruption. Next to these shabby ewes who have completely blemished their vocation, it is necessary to encourage the bravery and the courage of the honest and [committed] policemen, even though they are not many, in the fight against banditry and criminality.
Incongruities
These nominations of the Head of state were packed with numerous errors in the chain of command of the positions of responsibility. This is the case for example with the public security commissionership of the 12th district of Nkolbisson in the city of Yaoundé and at the head of which [is] a lady, the police commissioner Nebabi Martine. Her former first assistant, police principal official Zong Mitang was transferred to Bertoua. He was replaced by a first rank police officer who, and this is the most interesting part in this [tawdry] history, is the boss to another police official who is his superior in rank. Mbakop Antoine is a 2nd grade police officer. He was nominated assistant 2nd commissioner of the 12th district and receives orders from a police officer, 1st class, nominated his first assistant. What [kind of] collaboration can we expect between these two ranking officers condemned to work together? The police officer, 2nd class, Mbakop Antoine will he actually have the heart to work knowing that he will henceforth receive orders from an individual [of lower rank] that him? This is an example of ineptness among so many others and it is high time that the DGSN, which is a champion of discipline and respect for the principles of good governance, puts an end to this clumsiness [which is] likely to demobilize this strategic component for the safeguarding of the order in the city of Yaoundé.
Initiation
The other current event in the police is the last refresher training which involved close to 2000 inspectors and peace officers at the police Instruction and Implementation Center(CIAP) of Mutenguene. One of the objectives of this return to school was to transmit new knowledge to the policemen recently graduated from the last promotion. We know that their training had been all but rushed for reasons linked, some say, to the shortage of personnel. Recruitment carried out under the [administration] of Pierre Minlo Medjo had largely surpassed expectations. The CIAP of Mutenguene was not up to the task of reasonably welcoming everyone. Conscious that some of these policemen were poorly recruited and poorly trained, this is what no doubt explains many blunders observed lately, Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o has started refresher training for some time now. The only sour note here is that it is necessary to fork out 30,000 Fcfa(USD$58.8) for them to take part and to pay for their round-trip transportation ticket. To what purpose therefore are these buses and other polices trucks parked at the DGSN and at the Higher National School of police? Why were they not used for the transportation of the trainees as it happens elsewhere?
At the CIAP in Mutenguene, the policemen admitted to undergo this training will not come on a pleasure trip. On the program, the menu is robust: Police Ethics, human rights, division life, shooting, armor and many other concepts will be the order of the day. The policemen will receive updates that they were unaware of: notably from the courses on police ethics, lessons having to do with stationary posts. The stationary posts includes banks and all the other financial institutions guarded by the men in uniform, cash convoys, the guarding of certain VIPSs and others. This is also a cash cow for high ranking noncoms of the police and armed forces who enrich themselves on the backs of their subordinates by holding back complete transfer to them of 30% of the sums that they receive monthly from these financial institutions. Having been made aware of these rights during this refresher training, elements of the Mobile Intervention Group of Ebolowa threatened to engage in a strike if this injustice was not redressed. Promises were made to them for a return to normal [practice]. Will they be respected since we know that the racketeering spirit and dishonesty of the police bosses who do not always lead by shining example?
Free for all at Mutenguene
The second oddity of this improvement training will have been the large number of recorded desertions at Mutenguene. Close to 1000 altogether. Some runaways we met, under condition of anonymity, [did not have kind words for] their bosses. They especially criticized the drastic reception and catering conditions at the CIAP of Mutenguene in spite of the high expenses masses of 30,000 Fcfa(USD$58.8). 10 liters of water every three days for drinking, toiletry and bathing. Monotonous nutrition and a poorly prepared food. From which was harsh cases of acute diarrhea and malaria. The trainees who owned cars preferred staying in Douala in order to get to Mutenguene each morning. Those who did not have this freedom, but were financially better-off, stayed in the inns of Tiko and Limbé. The rest of the troops, in the absence of extended suicidal test, simply packed their bags and fled. Close to 2,000 at the beginning, it is finally about a thousand policemen who took the month long retraining course from start to finish.
At the headquarters for National Security in Yaoundé, this situation of foremost concern for the head of police. On his installations tour, Edgar Alain Takes Ngo’o plans to take the bull by the horns in the coming days. Some discussion about eventual penalties for the deserters: freezing of the rank promotions or planning for another catch-up session.
But before then, it is very necessary to establish responsibilities. Why should a structure as vital as the CIAP have supply problems in drinkable water? With [regards] the bad food, one wonders to what [purpose] served the 30,000 Fcfa forked-over by every trainee? The matter will be followed

Fellow Cameroonian,
I have been reading your contributions keenly on this forum. You guys know what? The one thing God blessed me with is the fact that you are all COWARDS. You are too good for the computer keyboard and foolish analysis...fine for me!
I enjoy some bits here anyway. keep writing and satisfying yourselves while I continue in Etoudi.
Some other group say they are SCNC or what? You gus are another bounch of serious noise makers! I enjoy your stupidity and idiotic dreams. Do you think I have any headache? Fools!!!!!!!!!
I heard some idiot say I shall step down in 2011? For another coward???
Get going guys, keep writing!!!Paul

Paul-are you now the serial killer of Nottingham?

When Cameroon started rubbing shoulders with countries that swim in mediocrity,and war mongering like Chad several months ago,I knew she was even going to equate herself with the bastion of terrorist masterminds like Iraq.We should not fool ourselves,a comparison between these two countries will fit amazingly.
Iraq is a hideout of holy killers,while Cameroon ia a hideout of satanic swindlers.
Iraq is made ungovernable by the gruesome legacy of an inconsequential dictator,while Cameroon is rendered flacid by more than 40 years of impunity,forty years of hollow promises.
We saw it coming.When a country`s Diplomacy is dead, all players on the International scene take their turns to toss it round at their convenience.We all watched with awe the other day when the Chinese President was celebrating his Mass in Beijing with African 'Paupers of State'.He took turns to chip in a word or two to those who matter to the Chinese like Sassou Nguesso, Mugabe, El Bechir.The 3,4 minutes he spent talking to the above mentioned was reduced to 1 when Biya came on.Hu Jintao quickly urged him to continue his way into the Hall of Deliberations.This was a harbinger of what the Chinese had in store for Cameroon;2.5 billion! My God,this cannot even bring electricity to the Village of a residence Titus Edzoa built there at Nsimeyong! The image that one had of Biya this day was that of a man tired with like,but who tells himself that ,lets also line up ,and receive the Chinese chicken feed,and this will serve Junior to buy his christmas shoes with.Or how do we reconcile the fact that Cameroon also lines up,bowl in hand infront of people we practically have nothing to learn from,and who can`t even feed their 1.3 billion population.That image of Biya prostrating in front of the Chinese president shows us the waywardness that takes hold of a man when he is walking down the last mile of a wasted life.
Fate always has a cruel way of bringing men of terrible, but impressive vices to their doom.Or how can we reconcile the fact that when Biya bows to the Chinese,Jacques
does so and his pointed nose almost touches the ground. When the Sudanese billionnaire instituted a price for the first African dictator that will voluntarily relinquish power,he surely had in mind Biya as the likely winner,but he forgot that Jacques Chirac should be considered as the number one African dictator.The others can come in any order.The question now is ,how is the "Meilleur eleve" going to feel when the " Plus mauvais professeur" leaves office in 2007,and subsequently picks up the price?
Yeah, because we have never seen a student who professes unconditional love for his teachers,but who turn round and tell him that the Democracy he is learning from their school is a luxury to him!

Ricardo et al

I just had some comic relief from that posting of yours" stay the course". hahahahah

Mr Ricardo, STAY THE COURSE - This phrase, based on a sailing metaphor of keeping an unchanged course in navigation, was popularized during the 1980 Presidential campaign.Though Republicans have helped to popularize the expression it was in 1982, according to the Washington Post, Ronald Reagan 'visited 14 states in 10 days of campaigning since Labor Day, carrying his 'stay the course' message."

This was a man in order to underpin his plan for the nation asked his people to join him despite all odds to build on that plan.

How ridiculous to hear you asking Cameroonians to "stay the course".Stay what course? Downward drain into the abyss? Stay what course? Course of more corruption and maintenance of the status quo? Stay what course for goodness sake?

.We are the 130th of 150 nations according to UN development index
.We are the first five worst governance nation
.We are the 138th of 160 least corrupt nations
.We are the 130th out of 150 nations to business world wide
.We are among the worst ten in human rights abuse
etc etc etc...........

Which of these "courses" are we then to "stay"?
What a ridicle and and maybe a comic relief to forum members to read of someone asking Cameroon govt to "stay the course".Gentleman can you tell us which of these "courses" are we to "stay"?

Hello Brothers and Sisters !!

Back home it might be hell BUT we are not dying. Y'all spend time here, cursing your fellow cameroonian governing brothers but what have you done?? Apart from spending pompous holidays at back home instead of spending some of the cash investing: building libraries,offering scolarships funded by ourselves, providing well projects at home (in your villages or beloved neighbourhoods). Why neighbourhoods? because I've got friends from Kembong or Akwaya who feel at home nowhere else than in Essos or Ekounou (Yaounde). Men men men , the government can't do everything. Now we are behind countries like Mali just because the Cameroonian diaspora just spends its precious time fighting : francophones vs anglophones, beti vs bamileke, SW vs NW, North vs South or the ambazonia stupid stuffs. Who should make Limbe,Kribi or Lolodorf attractive like Monaco,Mallorca , Copacabana? The Government? NOOOOOOOOOOO my friends!! It is the elite !! You dumb ass people think Muna, Foncha or Endeley etc were robbed? NO! Show me only one Muna or Endeley who is a zero... NONE! They chose what was better for all of us and that's the only way for Cameroon to be properous one day....and most of all DON'T BE SELFISH!!

"I don talk my own. Mey person wey fit talk betta thing come challenge me. I BEG WONNA!! Cameroonian ova get mop!"

Mey person no come tell me sey Biya must go because no be the solution be that (Il va partir ca c'est un fait.. Tout le monde partira!!)..even Pa fru know wetti be the solution and na why that clown no fit assemble people for this country AGAIN !!

Ma Mary

Ongola-Iwondo. Please do not try to pull that one. You sit on your parrot's perch in Warsaw or wherever and write nonsense about "we are not dying". You know what, I agree with you that government in a country cannot do all. There must be private initiative, but the government of la Republique does not do its minimum. It does not maintain roads, its civil service,customs etc are filled with predators who would steal your capital. There is no rule of law. That is all government's function.

Sir, it is sheer irresponsibility for anyone with capital, indigene or not when there is no government to create a favorable business environment.

Finally, the union between la Republique and Southern Cameroons is DEAD. It is like a tree that has rotted from the inside. It is still standing, but a small breeze will knock it down for all to see.

Dzien droby, my friend.

Ongola-Iwondo

Ma Mary,
it isn't nonsense my dear!! You are one of those people here pooring inanities. Y'all folks go back home very rarely and think its hell... It might be from your point of view BUT WE ARE NOT DYING !!! You are still waiting for the government's minimum? "you go wait sotey tire!!" What would you change with you're critics? NOTHING!!

You say there are no rules or laws and I'm very surprised by that insanity. What have you enterprised in Cameroon and didn't work? Some, I say some people make up stories of their failure from their inabilty to manage a family business and wake up one day to say "It's the Cameroonian government's fault"...POOR YOU believers!!

Some other brothers n sisters just want to start VERY BIG things back home while they've proven nothing and need the government's assistance. In french:"Manque d'experience du terrain" - We all know THE AFRICAN (its not the cameroonian mentality but african) is very skeptical especially when there is an idea from the learned brother from abroad and a foolish complex of inferoirity wrt the European...So, instead you can start something else at a smaller scale which surely does not demand the "bureaucracy" of our authorities nor attracts a corrupting demand.

I personally and some fellow bros n sisters of different ethnic origins don't care about the Cameroonian government and we do what we want to do at home (villages and neighbourhoods)at our LEVEL and the BEST way we can, provided it helps our brothers and sisters. We go back home at least once a year to carry out some positive business. SO IT IS NOT JUST A MANNER TO TALK THE TALK 'CUZ I DO WALK THE WALK TOO. The philisophy is simple:If you can't take care of your proper well-being, NOBODY would do for you nor make a profit from IT.

My friend its: Czesc or Do widzenia. Dzien dobry its goodmorning!!

Take good care of yourself!!

Ongolo-Iwondo,

You have introduce yourself in this forum with a seemingly Anti-Southern Cameroonian and anti-progressive rhetoric and flipflopping of the highest order. Like the evil Dr Agbormbai, your description of the bandits in that corrupt junta a "government" is a wake-up call for every rightminded person in this forum, to look at your write-ups with "cony" eyes.

You wrote:

"I've got friends from Kembong or Akwaya who feel at home nowhere else than in Essos or Ekounou (Yaounde)"

Yes, even the Muna's, the Nwalipenja's, the Tabetando's, the Ngu's, the Ngute's, etc may come from Akwaya, Kembong, Mbengwi or wherever in the Southern Cameroons. Yes, they might feel at home in Yaounde because they have sold their concience to La Republique and see no reason to defend their relatives who might be dying in poverty in Akwaya, Mundemba, Mbengwi, while La Republique benefits through their natural resources like petroleum, timber, etc and develops roads, schools, hospitals and other basic infrastructures in Yaounde and other cities where they live. Dont you know that it is thesame people, that La Republique send to their villages to lie to themselves and their relatives in their respective villages about mundane projects in the pipeline that will seemingly bring development to their villages.

Secondly, you wrote:

"Y'all spend time here, cursing your fellow cameroonian governing brothers but what have you done"

The soo called governing brothers and sisters have cursed themselves by always lying to themselves pretending to be lying to others to steal their votes and gain favours. For example, it was a governing minister Agbor Tabi, who cursed himself by placing a caterpillar in Mamfe and Lying to himself and Manyu people to vote for the murderous CPDM, it was another governing Prime Minister who lied to himself by diverting funds for Santa water project to his ranch in Santa thereby depriving Santa people of portable water.

They (the government) are the ones who always talk about development, peace, corruption, etc. Nobody here have ever forced them to say some of these things. While they have the freedom of speech to say all these lies in La Republique and go free, and spend all their time designing tactics to lie to our people, i should also be allowed my freedom to write in the cyberspace to criticise them and cite "FUTURE" lies that they are planning to tell my people.

La Republique Du Cameroun can own everything, CRTV, SDF, etc. but they cannot own this cyberspace. They cannot force me to support the injustice that have rendered the lives of our people useless. I know they are evil and i will always exposed their evil intentions in this forum.

To conclude, what we in the diasparo can do is not wanted in La Republique. Because what we can do is what La Republique does not want us to do. I tell you what, the last thing they have been unable to do is to ban western Union and other money transfer agencies In La Republique. So that is the only thing we can do now: Send money home to our relatives.

Ongola-Iwondo

rexon,

Southern Cameroonian? Anti-Southern Cameroonian? We are Cameroonian plain and simple. I'm against putting Cameroonians against each other. You might be a frustrated guy but please don't take innocent people into you brainwashing factory and make them follow your fallacious doctrine.

I might been intervaining here very very rarely (maybe once every 3months)but today I've got a bit of time to write what I think about some the things the frustrated majority of which you are surely part of(sorry!) thinks and writes on this very visited tribune. The people you named above, what did they do for their community and country when they where at the right places? Apart from building their houses, buying cars and sending their kids abroad, NOTHING!! What would you have done? Now, do something without those means so as for you not to be embarassed when those means will be provided to you. This is a cameroonian problem.

I'm blessed my heart beats for every part of Cameroon so, I can be very balanced in my reasoning because every region in Cameroon has been marginalised in a certain way or the other...Still very young though , I still have some fresh(good and bad) memories of Buea, Muyuka, Bamenda, Maroua, Mbalmayo, Ebolowa, Bertoua, N'dere, Garoua, Bafang, Nkonsamba, Yaounde etc... You've got to travel man and see how others live.

You write "..what we in the diasparo can do is not wanted in La Republique. Because what we can do is what La Republique does not want us to do"...Want can you do apart from crying and posting critics? Buy weapons?(The latter will never happen..NEVER!)Infact, your last two paragraphs are very incoherent and lack facts.

Best regards,
Ongola-Iwondo.

Welcome to the forum Ongola-Iwondo,I do believe you are not here for a word battle but for facts.If you say some individuals are frustrated because 'This year Cameroon was number 138 out of 163'in corruption in the list of Transparency International which makes its position very suspicious and doubtful in the fight against corruption then you are wrong.

Read along the line and you will realise Cameroon needs much more than just flip-flopping politicians who make monies out of the pockets and votes of the common man in the street.We still see things of yesterday today and therefore the future is bleak.I hope Biya can pass the test of his time to be given that award by 2011.

Fealty Gobshites like Iwondo wouldn't be able to Stop Ambazonia's rights,neither his Colonial Y'de Junta.Ambazonia is not as gailkit like Iwondo who does not know his own rights and will go even further to contest it when exposed free of charge.LRC was pulverized in an uncontested Estoppel in B'da High Court HCB/28/92.Even the strickening in years tortfeasor in Y'de who signed LAW 84/001 of 4th Feb 1984 will not stop it.LRC and gobshite Iwondo uses plundered resources from Ambazonia to bribe Global Lawyers thinking that,money works all the time in buying justice.Truth is Eternal.Iwondo looks terribly nescient of the times.Iwondo thinks he can send red trigger-happy drunken cauben to kill civilians in B'da,Buea,Kumba,with weapons of mass murder and does not expect Ambazonia to be liberated with liberation weapons.Crazy.So you have the monopoly to use weapons on others?Nutscase.Iwondo have be helpful with the abduction of Ambazonians to LRC to face military kangaroo trials in the metropole on trump up charges,a crime against fourth Geneve Convention.If people want Rumsfeld to be tried now,Iwondo thinks he and LRC be swept under the carpet.Iwondo should go read beyond whathe knows of the cameroons cause your brain is soiled with filth.FOOLISH.

Fritzane Kiki,

It's a rather a come back but nevertheless thank you! I liked you're warm introduction.

Let me tell you there should be of course a battle of words(first) because we're all learning in this forum and by so doing we should shy away from extremism... My problem isn't the position of Cameroon in whatsoever classification but the way WE(Cameroonians) tend to picture that information. I do hope being in Asia you've toured the region and can name at least 15countries Cameroon is ahead of(in the world we can name at least 40). Talking about corruption, I can name at least 2 EU countries having corrupt society as corrupted as the Cameroonian society (Note: I said cameroonian society and not Cameroon).

You know what? I think, there is also a problem of generations. The guys over the +50ers are the lost generation never took the destiny of this Country and are still governed by the Biyas (+70, +60 ers)... They were given EVERYTHING: scholarships + advantages... While most of the guys of the +40ers seem lost also... The new generation knows what it takes to succeed.Just look at the cameroonian engineers in germany, russia, canada; medics in Belgium, USA, finland etc. We have a VERY STRONG diaspora. It should be a battle of constructive words and ideas and putting down good projects back home. I'm usually ashamed to see what the Malians(they are people like us - it's just an example among others knowing what position they had in africa 10years ago) manage to build their villages WITHOUT passing through the goverment... AND now the government is pressured not from outside but from inside...

Best regards,

If you knew who I am, you could be very sorry and ashamed of what you wrote...BECAUSE I've got no Political ties with nobody and God bless I'm still very young(and strong). I just work for the betterment of my brothers'(from Yoko, Ngoazip or Guidiguis ), sisters' (form Ngoketunja, Malimba or any other part) + my family and beloved friends' situation...By so doing, I hope to help my Country.

Ongola-Iwondo:

I bet you are a mutant of Riccardo or Agbormbai or even Vally of England. This forum is used to people changing ids when their duplicity has been disclosed.
In civilised places, people want to get to power so as to implement a programme, which they tell the electorate about. When they are voted, they implement their electoral promises as far as this is possible, of course with various amendments dictated by events during their tenure. In Cameroon, power is not obtained through the ballot box. It is foisted on whoever is going to dance to the tune of the incumbent.
If a government cannot provide the basic needs of the population like schools, hospitals, roads, utilities, and a healthy climate for investment, why should it be called a government? If all a government does is to loot the resources of the country and impose hardship on the population, what is the reason for singing its praises? Who should provide amenities for the population? Is it the population fending for itself or those who put themselves forward as a government? When you charge those in the diaspora with not improving their neighbourhoods and the rest of the trash you have been paid or asked to post here, what obligation does anybody have to help people outside his/her family circles? You must certainly be living abroad on a stipend from your sponsors in the CMR government who have asked you join in rubbing pepper into the wounds they have already inflicted on Cameroonians. When you see the taxes collected in civilised countries being used to run the economy, don't you feel that it ought to be the same in Cameroon too? Except for unforeseen cases, you have electricity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In these countries it is well known that good governance is a development tool. You find few people pocketing the country's resources and doing nothing for the population. Rexon has told you about Western Union. Find out what marvellous things those in the diaspora do with the help of Western Union and MoneyGram. I bet the government we have in Cameroon would like to put its hands on the money transferred through these agencies. I bet someone is looking for ways of taxing all the dough coming in from abroad to relieve the suffering of the masses in CMR.
You have only just signed in today, or you claim to post a thing or two once in 3 months. Well, before you post again, try to do your homework and know that today you are accusing the wrong people. It is not those struggling Cameroonian bushfallers who contribute a lot to alleviate suffering that you should be blasting. Rather you should have a sharp word for those who spend sleepless nights creating problems for my poor brothers and sisters in CMR.

Ongolo-Iwondo,

We have heard those stories time and again from henchmen of La Republiques corrupt junta. It is thesame old stories, that diasparo's of Mali, Burkina Faso etc have done this or that. I have always insisted that this is a tactics preached by their children to "Buy" time to continue the theft of our resources. We saw it here when criminals like Dakole Daisalla were appointed ministers to continue the thiefery of Mr Biya's junta when other people who uses these words like you (Dr Agbormbai, Ricardo) describe the government as the best for the people.

You see, people are not fools. We have the right to criticise as we have thesame right to support our people back home. You cannot force us to shut up our mouths simply because the evil junta has provided you a mansion in europe and you are hiding there. Micro/macro policies cannot work if government policies are against meaningful development. Dont you know that Franck Biya owns all the forest in the east and southern provinces of your nation called La Republique. Dont you know that even in my country, the Southern Cameroons, there is always a theifery of barrels of petrol in a Scam that habitually involves a certain Ndime of Beti extraction, and other henchmen of the regime? Young man, we cannot vomit all here in one single write up. But let me warn you that you cannot fool us to buy time to steal our resources and render our peoples lives useless while you sleep in your luxury in poland.

Ongola-Iwondo and other Patriots in this forum,

Please keep your head up and tell the truth to those who use this forum to sing the song of division and hatry.
Progressive Cameroonians and Patriots have to think positive.
Brother Ongola-Iwondo, your statement as a Patriot tells it all! It hurts a lot of people here who dont want to hear it.
It is very unfortunate that some Cameroonians here are very bloaded with emotions and they will call anyone names who disagree disagree with them.
Potential "Big Time Dictators"
Thank God, Cameroonians are educated people to distinguish voodoo brainwashing fellows from real concerned Patriots.

"CAMEROON IS ONE AND WILL REMAIN ONE AND INDIVISIBLE" wether we like it or not...

We just have have to work together to make it a better place for the next generation...

This bozo in the name of Ongola-Iwondo must be very happy that many are responding to his vapidity.The iconoclast forgets that there are international survey institutions that put Cameroon abyss in all classifications and not those in diaspora.

"we are not dying" you and who? We all know that those of you who see nothing wrong with the murderous cpdm regime are those benefiting from it.

Ma Mary

Iwondo, so you really perch in Poland, parroting the party line from your uncle Paul. It was morning in the West Coast of the USA when I responded to you lecture so Good morning was quite appropriate. Poland is a former communist country that is doing better than your beloved republique by all indices. I wonder what you are doing there. It is hypocrisy if you are not actually in cameroun.

I reiterate: it is government's job to create minimum conditions for business to develop. These include absence of corruption, security, rule of law, a business-friendly tax code etc. Not all of us like to cheat on taxes. Not all of us have powerful beti relatives to tweak the books and to clear the path. You want us to invest there so that your relatives can extort our funds with bribes and intimidation in order to maintain you in Poland.

Rexon points out that people in the diaspora are buoying that economy by subsidizing their relative's lives and lifestyles. A six month embargo will bring the situation to a head.

Tabeng Tayim

Ma Mary,

GREAT response to this traitor that poses with the name Ongola-Iwondo. These fargot underarchievers in Cameroun who pose as the ruling junta have betrayed and sold African Souvereignty. When the Southern Cameroon nation voted in the 1961 Plesbicite to join La Republique du Cameroun in a Federated State, that was an initiation of African Emancipation by Union with what we thought were our brothers. 5 decades have taught us better. The government of La Republique has become an impediment to development in Southern Cameroon.

These greedy gay puppets and sissies of any available imperialist will never do the right thing as mandated by the 1961 plebiscite until they have exhausted all other options. These fools base their handicapped logic on the assumption that they have the monopoly of military force. That is what the Serbians in Yoguslavia, turned Yogo-calamity thought. That is what the Russians thought in Latvia, Estonia, Lituania, Ukraine, Georgia, etc.

If they think that Cameroun's current and premature dispensation of annexing the Southern Cameroons is a permanent solution, then the castration of their ballooned egos awaits them. If it will take a military solution to kick this immoral and fargot annexationist out, then we, without doubt have a rendez-vous with fate.

Fritzane Kiki HK

Tabeng Tayim,
You are quite right here.The problem of Cameroon lies within Cameroonians themselves.I don't think we should base our minds on external powers to liberate Cameroonians from this fiasco.But we should hope for a change in the near future as the CPDM gives way with his stooges and stomarch politicians for a new era.We have no positive memories of Biya's 24 years rule than suffering,poverty and exploitation.

I am always very impressed with some scholars who have decided to devote a greater part of their lives in conducting researches that are aimed at examining the state of affairs in some countries. This expression is strictly implied to the just ended research condusted by a team of professors at harvard university to determine the state of affairs in some choosen countries in the world based on governance. I am however dissapointed and would like to criticise such research works for failing to site the posible implications on the part of some unscrupulous heads of governments who believe that results of such surveys are mearnt just to consume and yet remain indifferent about the whole thing. Cameroon is a tipical example where the government has never reacted positively to any survey result despite the ill-image and shame that such results bring to our nation. The government always receive these results and think that the persons who gave up their most precious time to conduct such research are fools. Its time things start to go the write way and I'm calling on all those government officials who think that they are been influenced by the head of state to do things that are not their taste to reconsider their stand and change for a better Cameroon. For they should beer in mind that when ever the head of state is summon to judgement, they will also follow suit (As the case with Sadam and hus followers). We have suffered alot in Cameroon, a country which has been transformed into an island of wealth so much so that even the poor would want to prefer 100cfa to governance.

I wish to inform the head of state finally that its still not to late to make a decision for a better cameroon. I beg you to say that it doesn't cost you any thing except your effort to put the country straight so why not do it. You already have enough for yourself for all is varnity and you would die and leave them behind in Jesus name I pray.

Amen.

Hello !!

I'm very supprised by the inability of some of you to conduct an intelligeable battle of words without being frustrated. Let me reply to some of:

@Fon
Is your family dying of hunger back home? If yes, that's your fault. Is your neighbour dying? If yes, you are the fault because you've done nothing to help. If you are so tired with the cpdm, why can't form your own party and start building a good political framework (though that isn't the only solution and I thin it isn't even a solution). The fact that some people are responding shows that there is some truth in what I say and a real intention to debate though they don't know how to start.

@Ndiks
I can just compare you to these neo-nazist kids in some parts of eastern europe who don't really know what the are fighting for. They only know one phrase:"Go home, I hate you!" But when asked why, they just keep on repeating the same thing.

@Fritzane Kiki
That's what I'm trying to say. The problem lies within Cameroonians and there is no sense trying to divide our fatherland. Cameroonians just have to work together independently of their origins (whether at home or not but doing it for the betterment of our Country).

@Langai
I'm no mutant brother, rather a person with a head and a brain at the right place. Don't just rely on stories told by others but verify. I've never had any problem with Western Union nor MoneyGram(whatsoever humble amount have intended to send). Man, talk what you know: Franck Biya owns no forest. He can own the whole Mvomeka'a if his father wants but that's not how things are done. I still remember the way people potrayed the president's village saying things like: there is an airport, a hotel like hilton, golf courts etc. But when his first wife died(r.i.p ) we all saw that Mvomeka'a wasn't the paradise people thought... So, my friend VERIFY every piece of information.

@Tabeng Tayim
I'm no traitor nor traitor to be(in any field. Je suis un homme intègre!) because I've got no political ties with whosoever. IF by so saying means you thought I'm from SW nor NW (which doees not matter for me all), I'm sorry. Though I got my education from the prestigious schools of the latter regions, I'm not even a bit connected by far or near to your way of viewing things(or to some of you).

@Ma Mary
The fact that I'm reponding from Poland does not mean that's my base. You said because of the time difference you said Goodmorning? Pardon me but I think at the end of a conversation or letter you can't say that...I can maintain myself in any part of the world thanks to my education, audacity and tact so, I don't need any financial "help" from whosoever...as simple as that. Keep on vociferating here rather than using your brain to change the system in which your fathers and uncles are founding members.

Rating Cameroon in the same league as war ravaged countries like Iraq in terms of governance is unfair. Cameroon is not in a state of civil war as is practically the case in poor Iraq. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, however much disgusted we are at the state of affairs in our country, we must hold our heads high in the face of such negative and baseless statistics. Which criteria define good governance and what sort of ideologies do we use? All governments anywhere in the world are corrupt.
May I state that I am appalled at the abuse of power in whatever form in Cameroon, but I remain a proud Cameroonian to booth! I know with time change will be inevitable and those responsible for bringing our dear fatherland to this state of ridicule will be called to account.

I don't know what you mean why "those identity chameleons". As I wrote earlier, I've never really taken a debate to a passionate level(just some very sporadic comments) here because of certain reasons namely: my time schedule, inappropriate theme to some lectures here and the poor usage of this forum (especially the low class propaganda some of our fellow countrymen here)and so on...for sure you could name the rest BUT I can assure you that your ID (Mbu B) is very familiar to me.

Man, I do write from the heart and with the respect I always have for every interlocutor provided he(or she) does the same althrough).

I hope the intelligence of some people will prevail(I know they are not lunkheads or duffers) and see that, we are striving to attain the same goal. We all know (I hope we do!) that Malcolm X and MLK dedicated themselves to the same cause BUT only MLK is a hero today. Though all roads may lead to Rome, the road taken is still VERY important.

My dear Ongola-Iwondo,

It's great reading some of your comments after a three months relapse as you indicated.I do very much appreciate your comment especially your first write-up. While you gave some useful

I was abit worried whether you were in your full reasoning before you made this commentary. How on earth can you ask if people back home are dying?? What do you understand by death??
- A country where there is no rule of law and where ever it exist its favours the a class of people.
- A country where everything goes in the opposite direction in terms of governence
- Listen my brother, not about SC or LRC or whatever you want to put it: How much was Titus Edzoa earning as a salary be it a minister, physician, to construct the mansion he "left" at Shell Nsimeyong?
- How on earth will you of all be so reasonable to insinuate that some EU countries are/could be more corrupt that Cameroon. Which EU are you refering?? Maybe Poland where you are leaving. Most probablt because they have just been in for two years now.
Even if they are more corrupts, does that give any reason for the country to subject its country to abject poverty as a result of myopism and egoism? Why didn't you choose to stay and study in the country you very much cherish.
What should be noted is that any one who criticizes here very much likes Cameroon like you and you are no more a cameroonian that any person here. Its just due to patriotism that people have to say the realities. I know people like you don't like the realities. If you think Cameroon is ready to promote small size and medium size enterprises; how much is the tax for a barbing saloon for a year?? I was in Cameroon a few weeks ago and I think the only difference between Cameroon and hell is that I am not yet dead otherwise we can equate Cameroon to hell in terms of suffering of the skilled, youths and educated.
Everything is Cameroon is "kapout". How is the tax of a saloon evaluated.
You think you're the only who visits the country. How do you see the sate of the Douala roads. The only city in Cameroon with an international seaport. Such a good country Mr.Ongola-Iwondo. Lets be objective at times and spell out what is...... Not about SC?LRC here my man but about the realities of corruption.Well, you have your view but try to be objective.

Have a great day and nothing personal

TO ALL RANTING IN HERE SEEKING FOR NOTICE!

Good governance indices have measuring yardsticks. International institutions have no axe to grind with Cameroon and should not biasedly rank us this way if this wasn't the case.


1. Good governance means performing effectively in clearly defined functions and roles Is there any difference between the executive and the judiciary in Cameroon?

2.Good governance means being clear about the functions of the governing body .
Has the Cameroon govt any plan for the nation?

3.Good governance means being clear about the responsibilities of non-executives and the executive, and making sure that those responsibilities are carried out .Who runs public corporations in Cameroon? Aren't they run by the executives.

4. Good governance means promoting values for the nation and demonstrating the values of good governance through behaviour and putting national values into practice .Where's Cameroon vis a vis national values?

5. Good governance means taking informed, transparent decisions and managing risk, being rigorous and transparent about how decisions are taken,having and using good quality information, advice and support ,

making sure that elected governors have the skills,knowledge and experience they need to perform well.Cameroon govt replaces elected governors with appointed ones( Govt delegate replacing elected mayors etc )

6 .Good governance means developing the capability of people with governance responsibilities and evaluating their performance, as individuals and as a group.It might not be uncommon for the minister of women affair of Cameroon to be a man , or minister of town planning and housing to be an educationist, as long as they're "central committee" members

7. Good governance means taking an active and planned approach to dialogue with any dissenting views and camps thereby rendering justice to all.In Cameroon ,The Southern Cameroonians who make up about 3million of the 16milion Cameroonians are at the brink of separation yet a govt that supposedly caters fot this group ignores their grievances.

7.Good governance means limiting the size and fiscal weight of the civil service. In Cameroon this is the worst cankerworm eating deep into the fabrics of the nation. Instead of encouraging a vibrant, strong private sector the govt year in year out indirectly recruits thousands into a corrupt public service. ENAM, EMIA, etc etc while poltytec , IUT etc dont have funds to run.

8.Good governance means restructuring and decentralising the civil service . Cameroon civil service is one of the most centralised, corrupt and "business" spots in the whole of Africa. File chasing, dossiers, "makara pati" etc.

And the list continues.....................
Why then do some folks think all is well if they havent got skeletons in their cupboards? Ghana didnt become what it is today through praise singing to Jerry Rawlings and co. The people stood up and said "enough was enough".

Gentlemen, history and posterity will judge us all. You might sell your conscience today but when tables shall turn over the cat will be let out of the bag.Kudos!

My dad is Francophone, my mother an Anglophone, I was raised in Yaounde, but went to secondary and high school in Bamenda, I am comfortable expressing myself in either English or French, so by a lot of people’s definitions on this forum, who or what am I, On what side of this Mongo does my loyalty lie? For those still deliberating on the questions, I’ll answer. I’m a Cameroonian. Period. And what most ‘grown’ up Cameroonians fail to realise is that there is an overflowing spring of young Cameroonians like me. Hence we categorically deny to be subjected or drawn on the topic of ‘choosing’ between our fathers or mother or our towns of birth and our villages!

At 22 I am far from being a politician but basic truths and ideologies can not be hidden from us. The legacy you the ‘elders’ are going to hand down to us is one we would gladly turn a backs to, but faced with the impossibility of that alternative we would be the ones to lick and tend the wounds of this dying nation, and work hand in hand, elbow to elbow in a last ditch attempt to resuscitate her. And as long as there is a God in heaven, and as true as our forefathers and ancestors fought for what they believed in, Kamer will survive. And believe me when I say this has nothing to do with being Anglophone of Francophone!

I’ll let you in on another secret, since our hands are tied at the moment and the certificates and degrees achieved only serve as decorations in our parents’ living rooms or memorabilia to look on and reflect on hour spent burning the midnight oil, we will, in the words of 50 Cent, ‘patiently wait’… till the old generation simply die out or wither in senility. Nothing last for ever!

Then we will build our nation.

Remember , we are waiting… patiently.

Gailkit Iwondo,replace I with E and you get Ewondo.You are surely a member of the Essingan-Beti TRIBAL Zaibatsu and sticky-fingers who are plundering the resources of Ambazonia side by side with her Annexation.Your sudden preaching of the colonial buzzword "One And Indivisible" just reveals where you are coming from.Cameroun( LRC) of course.So there is no reason responding to the balderdash you write here. We make our case using History,Law and Facts and not Visceral tones.From there,you get CONSEQUENT AMBAZONIA.

Pikin,
it will be good if you do well to know your history.Not the garbage churned out by MINEDUC.Where your Parents may be coming from should not hogtie the want for justice by an oppressed people.

Good comment Pikin.Let me help you;you're a tadpole.I believe that should be a "pikin frog".The logic is simple dear child;your father's a frog.Compris?Who are you trying to kid here?

Tabeng Tayim

Mr. Ongola-Iwondo,

I am happy to be having this debate with minds like yours. Just as Agbor T said, nothing personal, JUST THE FACTS. Let me start by correcting some historical facts that you totally mis-construe. Above, you state as such, "We all know (I hope we do!) that Malcolm X and MLK dedicated themselves to the same cause BUT only MLK is a hero today.". Iwondo, just because the American congress (Under the Presidency of Renold Reagan -- August 1983) decided to award MLK a holiday and not Malcolm X, doesn't in the slightest mean that Malcolm X was less important in the struggle for justice, truth, and emancipation in the U.S, than MLK. To interpret that into meaning Malcolm X is not a HERO today is an unintelligent falacy of logical thought, and a travesty of reality. Infact, it was Malcoln X's militant stance that nudged white America to gravitate towards MLKs "love your neighbour as yourself philosophy". That is a historical fact that will be gotten by sampling any group of Americans that participated in the changing fifties and sixties.

Iwondo, let me stick with your example of the United States and its struggles and compare that to Cameroon. In the situation in the United States and its struggles for justice, truth was central in the outcome. Both the scenarios of the American Civil War (1861 to 1865), and the civil rights movements of the fifties and sixties were fought on the basis that the formal and codified supression of blacks to slavery and second class status were justified on the falsities that blacks were created inferior. That was a lie and a fabrication from beginning to end. The outcome of the battles was that the TRUTH PREVAILED!!

Now take the case of Cameroun. The U.S. Ambassador to Cameroun recently stated that investors were fleeing from Cameroon because of corruption. So what lie is it that is choking Cameroun?. Namibia, Kenya, Senegal, Botswana, Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa, Mali, etc are all becoming functioning democracies, but Cameroun continues to ferment. Ever asked why? All the indices of governance dictate that Cameroun in sliping down the slope of regression. So what lie is it that is choking Cameroun? Cameroonians; both Anglophones and Francophones are exporting themselves in huge numbers, disproportionately to other African democratic countries with similar levels of resources. So what lie is it that is choking Cameroun? Morality in Cameroun has descended to the level that the President of the Chamber of Commerce, and the U.N. Ambassador are being investigated for raping a boy and throwing him to his death through the 8th floor Window of the Yaounde' Hilton Hotel. So what lie is it that is choking Cameroun?

My friends, it is the lie of the Fraudulent Referandum of 1972 that created the illegitimate United Republic of Cameroon. It is the treachery that has marginalized the Southern Cameroonians. It is the lie and the betrayal of the Anglophones by Cameroun failing to work out the Plebiscite Mandate as was spelled out prior to the 1961 vote. Just like Apartheid was choking South Africa and its annexation of Namibia was choking its progress, the annexation of the Southern Cameroons is the cancer that is eating Cameroun. The Bible (in Exodus) teaches us about what happened to Egypt when she enslaved a people who came there of their own free will. The ferment which we are witnessing in La Republique du Cameroun is a direct result of these lies, treacheries, and blatant annexation. Now, these treacherous underarchievers talk of a North-South Axis of power as if they own the country. Yesterday, I was in Bamenda, heading to Bafut, and you can see how these fools have turned the Bamenda Airport into a Military base. We haven't started fighting and these cowards are deploying forces all over. They can deploy their occupationist army all over, but they cannot buy, maim, cajole, intimidate, or defeat our consiousness. When we will convert our consciousness into a military force, they will understand the decapitating fist of a people's fight for FREEDOM.

tayong

Pekin or one of "those".

Young man I decide to reply you because though early to judge, your intentions might be genuine. First and foremost, the Southern Cameroon issue isn't about francophones-anglophones. Southern Cameroon and La Republique had formed a single nation ,certainly, and is still a single nation, whether in the abstract or not.

Secondly Southern Cameroonians have always worked to live together with their brothers from La Republique until the powers that be decided to go for a divorce. Mr Pekin I dont know how old you are but remember the AAC of Buea didnt advocate for a separation but called on the regime not to wipe out the identity of one part of bicultural nation which fell on death ears.

Muna and Foncha still brought the regimes attention to the dangers of their policy of assimilation,and the duo cautioned the regime of sparking off a fire that might be unquenchable, still all fell on blind eyes and deaf ears.

So my "Pekin" you and I if honest will see that the real problem is not those asking for seccession but rather those who dont love this nation. They love to see us pitted against one another to their gains.

So my "Pekin" join us to pressure this regime to resolve this crisis.

Implement UN Res. 1608 or Pull out of Ambazonia (UN Trust Territory of the Southern Cameroons) with alacrity before it is to late to do so peacefully. See details of Resolution and appraisal Below.

The International Community should find Cameroun Republic in violation of the Law of Nations by charges of breach of international treaty (Treaty of Union with Ambazonia) and accordingly delt with squarely thus:
1. Dismiss Cameroun from the UN and all affiliated organizations if they should fail to comply;
2. Impose Economic Sanctions including the blocking of all material and immaterial international aid to Cameroun if they do not comply;
3. Utilize a UN Intervention Force(s) to force Cameroun to withdraw from Ambazonia Republic as was the case when the UN bombed Iraq out of Kuwait.

The citizens of Ambazonia (UN Trust Territory of the Southern Cameroons) continue to suffer unjustly because of Cameroun's illegal occupation which has led to the surpression of intellectual thought, the Anglo-Saxon Common Laws and Educational System, deprived of any vital economic development and including the systematic destruction of the agro-base industries that existed in the territory prior to the lies of Unification. In fact, agricultural base is being sold out to French people, including Christoff (?) Mitterand, the Son of Former French President Francios Mitterand! The failure to respond to these demands would be considered as a green light that Ambazoians can act accordingly and use any means possible to flush Cameroun illegal land lords out of the Ambazonia and no one, no country should blame Ambazonia for destabilizing the region in terms of the wider geo-political nature and location of the disputed territory.

APPRAISAL OF UN RESOLUTION 1608:

WHY IS UN RESOLUTION 1608 CENTRAL TO THE SOVEREIGNTY DISPUTE BETWEEN CAMEROUN AND AMBAZONIA (SOUTHERN CAMEROONS)?
The nations that voted in favor of the resolution might have had “unity as strength” as their guiding principle. But when we take a look at the said resolution, we have every reason to feel and believe that British Southern Cameroonians have been maltreated by both Cameroun and the United nations. From the said Resolution, we can make the following deductions:

1) A nation cannot become “independent by joining” another, especially if it is denied a seat at the World Organization. The case of the Republics that were part of USSR but had separate seats at the UN (and voted herein) are a glaring pointer to this effect! This condition secures the right of the parties to regain their sovereignty without necessarily having to pull much string, in case of material breach of treaty.

2) From (1) above, it is clear that the Trusteeship Agreement was already under violation, since “by joining” does not lead “to either self-government or independence” (76b) of the UN Charter/(Declaration Granting Independence …of Dec. 14, 1960)! Besides if Trusteeship was terminated on October 1, 1960, why then was Ambazonia not goiven a seat at the UN? Why did the UN see it fit to utilize the plebiscite tool to decolonize the territory? Was this act an application or a violation of the law? And what more of the absense of the UN and Trusteeship Council and Adminstering Authority of the said territory from ensuring that Paragraph 5 of the said Res. 1608 was actually effected? How else can one not cry foul play?

3) That Cameroun was among nations that opposed the Resolution and given that Cameroun has violated the Federation Treaty, besides the above Resolution demanding its implementation--both constitute gross evidence that Cameroun authority were not interested to have either a federation or unity with British Southern Cameroons. Thus Cameroun should not resist Ambazonian moves to form a separate Republic, which would fulfill Article 76b of the UN Charter and secure/protect the rights of its citizens.

4) France by virtue of her fears that Anglo-Saxon culture would pollute and prevent them from exercising continuous neocolonialism on its former colonies equally opposed the said resolution. Moreso, twelve other French-speaking and former French Colonies in Africa (see "Votes Against" in said resolution above) voted against any such union between Anglo-Saxon Ambazonia and Cameroun Republic. Thus there should be no resistence from their part whatsoever on letting Ambazonia go her way, even though Cameroun President Paul Biya already made Cameroun secession from the Union a legal clarity/reality with his Presidential Decree 84/001 of January 1984.

5) The Administering Authorities, in this case the United Kingdom did not do its job of ensuring that negotiations were conclusive before the stipulated date. Instead, what transpired was that Britain abandoned the Southern Cameroons at the mercy of French and Cameroun colonizers when it effectively pulled out of the territory one month to the date stipulated for the take-off (LEAVING BEHIND ONLY A FEW OF HER MARGESTY'S SOLDIERS WHO EFFECTIVELY HANDED OVER POWER TO CAMEROUN PRESIDENT AND NOT TO AMBAZONIANS ON SEPTEMBER 30 AT MIDNIGHT) for what they wanted us to accept as our independence day and the commencement of the KAMERUN CONFEDERATION (NOT FEDERATION)!

6) The UN equally failed to perform its role as supervisor of the process to decolonize the Southern Cameroons without necessarily compromising its sovereignty.

7) Evidence of the betrayal of Ambazonia (The British Southern Cameroons) by both Britain and the UN Nations is found in the fact that at the Foumban Constitutional talks, both parties were absent. Thus there was never any conclusive deal, which protected the Southern Cameroons from French and Cameroun intrigues. International law regards this absence as a major breach of international treaty and breach of trust and so all the deals from there hence must be seen as having no bearing on the citrizens of the Ambazonia whatsoever!

8) That on October 13, Cameroun President Ahidjo imposed Cameroun's constuitution and national emblems on the peoples of the "Southern Cameroons" in violation of all pre- and post plebiscite agreements, which by UN Res. 1608 attained Treaty status, and so must be found in contempt of the Rule and laws of the Law of Nations.

Three things can be deduced from the above seven points:

1) Ambazonia (Southern Cameroons), even if we assume attained independence, stands clearly as an example of a none-state nation given that it was never given a seat at the UN.

2) By virtue of the fact that the Confederation (not even federation) deal was never conclusive, everything that has been done in Cameroun in the name and name changing syndrome of unity is null and void ab initio, and must be considered not binding on Ambazonia (Southern Cameroons) which has clearly and effectively proven that there were unpardonable discrepancies in the unity process-which has led Cameroun to treat the Southern Cameroon masses as second class citizens and above all, refused to be lawful and accountable to/on the acts of government-this making Ambazonia (a UN Trust Territory which suffers from the effects of international conspiracy and breach of international treaty) to pass as a Cameroun Republic colony in 2002! Based on the above analyses, Ambazonia’s right to freely exercise its sovereignty can hardly be questioned, let alone denied.

3) The non-implementation of UN Resolution 1608 is glaring proof of a material breach of treaty and requires that the World Body actively take part in terminating the now too falsified relationship between Ambazonia and Cameroun before the situation turns into a bloody war of liberation.

The Ambazonia Patriotic Front (APF) acting as custodians of the message of the Ambazonia Republic’s “Ambazonia Peoples Emancipation Council (APEC) program” demands/suggests that the UN should redress this problem before it escalates into a full-scale war of liberation by granting Adult Membership to Ambazonia Republic in the United Nations, with alacrity for a good start. The time to do so is now for time is running out!

Iwondo,i'm having a great time i must admit.You are a true Camerounian and Cameroun should be proud of you.Nobody ,i mean no bloody body has the right to insult your country friend,and if they do you have every right to retaliate.In an objective manner also you have a duty to leave sentiments out of your analysis of any situation pertaining to your country.CAMEROUN has a very poor governance record.Period.its niether your faulty nor that of any Camerounian in the diaspora and at the same time it is.What the hell are you guys doing out there;staying on even when your host tells you he hates you and asks tou to go home?What i dont understand also is why you're debating over your governance ranking with foreigners;i cant remember the article mentioning anything about the Democratic Republic of Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia.Or maybe i missed it.
Well cameroun should be a great country for its neighbours to be so concerned about its affairs.If you dont want to be talked-about,say nothing ,do nothing and be nothing...cant remember who exactly said that.
To you all poking your noses in your neighbour's business,i say chill or you'll come out scarred,this ewondo guy's not kidding.Thanks.

Faced with the prospect of death and fading into the corridors of anonimity having achieved nothing, the illeterate mind resorts to its sharpest weapon, a slanderous tongue. Insults and stone throwing would not fill up the holes found in the pockets of the average Cameroonian, whichever side of the river your sperm and egg donors originate from.

I am by no means a Biya simpathiser and neither do I comminion with Fru nor share the SCNC ideologies. I am a young Cameroonian with a head full of ambitions and a bag full of hope just wishing that Cameroon can live up to its potential. Having lived in the UK for the past 4 years, I am amazed to see the narrow corridors along which we Cameroonians still train our thoughts. A blackman in Bush is a brother be him from Ghana, South Africa or Jamaica! And we share that solidarity. If such harmony is shared by these folks why cant we all, born under the same national canopy see each other as brothers and fight for one another.


I reiterate, the problem is not a francophone v anglophone one, its a fight between the poor cameroonians and the rich ones. (Face it, our rich anglophones dont give a rats anus about the poor ones).

And as vito called me a 'pikin frog' i shall happily 'leap' off at this point.

An Advice to Pikin et al.Don't stay in the cocoon and say your'e far from being a politician.I think man by nature is a political animal.There is politics in the food that you eat,the water you drink,shelter, medicine,economy rights,etc.Your daily live and survival is politics inside.You will then have CONSEQUENT AMBAZONIA.

As you decide to grab the seemingly lucrative side of your parental hegemony as intimated above(holding "vito" responsible) be reminded this issue isn't about francophone-anglophone. You'll miss it all if you consider this political dichotomy from that persperstive.Its rather a one man divorce case my "Pekin".

It will be advisable to read the facts well before delving into any debate concerning this issue. Others come to the forum with tribal undertones. Ewondo, Iwondo, Etone etc . These are the real destroyers of this nation. Why on earth would someone prefer to take on tribal indentity if not for tribalistic pride?

Let's keep on "ewondoing" while the nation slips off our hands.

Pikin, Iwondo and all Patriots,

People wonder what makes CAADIM (CAmeroonians Against the DIvision of our Motherland) a very successful Organization today?
Commentaries from young generation of Cameroonians will tell you all!
Young Cameroonians are the back bone of Cameroon today.
Patriots, this past generation of frustrated, angry and pessimists should never intimidate you. They are lost, angry, noisemakers who have difficulty to connect to the real people in our motherland.
With all due respect, they will come with all obselete ideas and they sincerely believe they still live in 1960s. Most of them sit in the comfort of their living room with a computer have no one to talk to but find instant pleasure screaming and shouting their song of division.
They will copy and paste articles from the colonial period. They will justify their laziness and lack of initiative to invest and create business by lecturing how the "Government is so bad in Cameroon".
These people sincerely believe that jobs and wealth are created by the Government not by private intiatives. They grew up believing that "Papa Government" is the Head of the Household of their families. They believed that government should provide free electricity, water, healthcare, education, foods etc...
They claim to possess High Diplomas and degrees but lack common sense...
That is the reality of Cameroonians from the 1960s.
Young Cameroonians, the future of our Country is bright...
Like every country in the world, we have our own problems...
Our Country will only prosper when we all stand and work together for our common future.
Our children in every corner of the streets in Bamenda, Nkongsamba, Douala, Garoua, Bertoua, Bafoussam, Edea, Kumba, Limbe etc... will hold hands together and sing the song of freedom "free at last! free at last!"
CAMEROON IS ONE AND INDIVISIBLE UNDER GOD!

May God bless a strong and united Republic of Cameroon!

I knew people living on sullied wealth,tax payers money and ill conceived wealth will spring up whenever a replica of theirs crops up.

How come a man who works to destroy through mishievious and malicious practices claim to be a patriot . Patriotism of Yang Philemon?

Ricardo,didn't you openly tell this forum that you secretly attend Southern Cameroon meetings (intelligence service) when confronted by Pa Ngembus? Whose CIA are you employed by? Cameroon ?Is this the Cameroon of Yang Philemon or that of forefathers you want to build?

Psycopaths making noise all over and should it come to concrete projects to boast of ,they might have nothing to show for their noise making but shady deals with corrupt henchmen back home.

Only one phrase. "The tides and waves are soon closing on you all" and Cameroonians will hold you all responsible.

Ricardo,

Once more, this unquestionable psychopath and evil genius in the name of ricardo will pop up with his rhetoric and lies to derail public opinion from listening to the truth. You can't force God-fearing people to support this kleptocratic Biya regime and blood thirsty government.

In your usual flip-flopping with NOTHING TO SAY apart from preaching your lies after being indoctrinated by the Yang gang and other CPDM bandits, you wrote:

"These people sincerely believe that jobs and wealth are created by the Government not by private intiatives"

To butress your arguments, you wrote:

"Young Cameroonians, the future of our Country is bright...
Like every country in the world, we have our own problems...
Our Country will only prosper when we all stand and work together for our common future"

Who is a government and what functions do you think a govenment is supposed to execute?

How can you differentiate a problem of a country and that of a government and its people or private initiatives?

What private initiatives do you want people to initiate that will be free from government policies?

Dont you know that private initiatives that are dependent on ones ability to create ideas and implement them are dependent on government policies?

You and who should stand and work together for a common future?


What future are you talking about? a future dictated by La Republique's corrupt junta?

Ricardo, i can go on and on with my questions and you and even evil gang members of Mr Biya's corrupt junta cannot answer any of them. Yes, Ricardo can get involved into a private initiative like the importation of rice to La Republique du Cameroun or even its colony the Southern Cameroons. Because of the Mundane Laws that protects people like Ricardo from Bamilikie extraction or something of the kind, he will freely import his rice duty free or collaborate with his brothers in the port in douala to pay little or no taxes. When a Southern Cameroonian like myself that the evil government Ricardo wants us to pay unquestionable allegiance to, imports thesame rice, he will be presented with fake bills and import duties that will force him to go bankrupt from the business. the effect with be that Ricardo will claim substantial net returns from his business while his southern Cameroonian slave will run out of business and run abroad with huge debts. Then Ricardo will claim he can manage a business better than an average Southern Cameroonian. Ricardo, only a fool will lie to himself. No True Southern Cameroonian is wanted in that Country.

Ricardo, i arrived at Sweden less than a decade ago. I am proud of what i have achieved within these few years abroad. Had i stayed in La Republique, i would have perished not because i did not have any initiative but because i did not know anyone in Yaounde and did not want to accept the injustice of bribing someone to gain favours.

Permit me say this to you and all. I am not one of those who ever plan to go back to La Republique. Even my own mother and relatives knows that. What i am concerned about is my family living back there. As far as i live, i will fight to destroy these evil junta with all i can. If you want to discuss business and related returns, lets talk. I can tell you about all the tricks involved in making money legally. I have applied it here and have taught others how to apply it in their businesses and it has been working. So if Frank Biya can be better of than me, then there is something wrong.

Piken,

My mother is from the South West-Manyu and my Father is from the North West-Mbatu Mezam. I was born in Buea and pay unquestionable allegiance to the South West. That is my choice and it is mine. Wherever your heart go, you should to there, but you should not stand our way as we have a need to fight for our freedom. Fighting for our freedom does not mean we have anything against a citizen of La Republique who does not stand our way. If our brothers east of the Moungo had a true intention in this mundane union, they should have been the first to stand on the streets to fight to defend our rights for freedom.

No Riccardo,you have nothing in common with pikin.The pikins of Cameroun epitomise the very plague that's shredding off the frail fabrics binding this nation;for short term selfish gains.These are the hypocrites who've never wanted progressive dialogue that would move this nation forward.Never mind their seemingly innocent stance.Where did pikin sudenly pop-up from and why just now.Well maybe you didnt realise it but there was something different about the debate generated by Iwondo.Iwondo challenged his compatriots to justify their misgivings towards the fatherland and i bet you in due course Iwondo and many others would have developed a different view of this whole mess;but then a pikin had to come in to kill the debate.Riccardo all these folk need is a genuine national forum for honest and genuine debate and the pikins of cameroon will never let that happen.we came close with the "Grand debat".That didnt materialise because the pikins of cameroon told the president that it was political suicide so he backed off and served us a "faxed large debat".
You know what,pikin has a previledge you cant even dream of;she's witnessed true "grand debats" conducted in a most conducive environments full of humility,genuine interest,understaanding, patience and love like you can never believe exists;several times between her parents.And Riccardo every single time mum "won".Then cunning pikin realised if this occurs at national level,definitely shell lose certain "priviledges".And that's how the demonic idea of maintaining this satanic unjust status-quo was born.
Do not be fooled by their semeenly innocent stance;we smell them from a distance.Even the devil quotes the bible.Pikin will never allow you and ma mary sit down and genuinely discuss about this marginalisation problem in Cameroun.Every time it comes up they come around and give you the impression it doesnt even exist;and then the opportunity is lost;but then until that day when you,Sango,Iwondo et al will sit with Ma Mary,Ndiks,Rexon et al;and under similar conditions as in the "pikinses",Cameroun will only know worse.There's much work going on to make that happen but then the pikins of Cameroun will have to be silenced first and purged out.We smell them friend,we really do.Beware!

Cameroon’s President Paul Biya has been ranked one of the four worst dictators in sub-Saharan Africa and one of the world’s worst 20. Mr. Biya is ranked with only two others in sub-Saharan Africa: Robert Mugabe and King Mswati of Swaziland.

Cameroon’s President Paul Biya has been ranked one of the four worst dictators in sub-Saharan Africa and one of the world’s worst 20. Mr. Biya is ranked with only two others in sub-Saharan Africa: Robert Mugabe and King Mswati of Swaziland. The ranking appears in David Wallechnisky new book: Tyrants, the world's 20 worst living dictators, Regan Press, 2006, pp. 286-290. Mr. Wallechinsky a historian, has worked as a commentator for the America television network, the NBC and is author of several reference books. Wallechnisky describes Cameroon's electoral process in these terms:

“Every few years, Biya stages an election to justify his continuing reign, but these elections have no credibility. In fact, Biya is credited with a creative innovation in the world of phony elections. In 2004, annoyed by the criticisms of international vote-monitoring groups, he paid for his own set of international observers, six ex-U.S. congressmen, who certified his election as free and fair.”
Since 2003, Wallechnisky has been writing an annual article for Parade magazine, ranking the 10 worst dictators currently in power. Now he has expanded the list and written a book on the subject, referred to above.
This classification comes in the wake of another publication ranking Cameroon among the five worst countries in the world in terms of governance, the other countries being Iraq, Chad, Somalia, Zimbabwe and Romania. The information is contained in a Governance Perception Index, a survey carried out at Harvard University led by Professor Robert Rotberg, of Kennedy School of Government and President, World Peace Foundation. Harvard is of the world’s best Universities. Transparency International has ranked Cameroon one of the most corrupt countries in the world. The latest ranking puts Cameroon at number 138 out of 163 countries. Other credible reports by United Nations agencies, US State Department, Amnesty International and others carry similar evidence of the abysmal state of governance and human rights in Cameroon. Instead of dismissing all these evidence as fallacy or burying our heads in the sand in the hope that things will change, all those with a stake in the country need to wake up to reality and do something about it.
As Cameroon prepares for local elections next year, it is worth pointing out that until the government allows for free and fair elections, the country will never get out of poverty. Free and fair elections can only come about through an independent electoral management process in accordance with the Durban Declaration etc. The government has to realise that Cameroon’s present image of a badly governed state means it will always be difficult to attract appropriate and substantial external investment to create jobs and eradicate poverty. As patriotic as anyone will like to be, it is almost impossible to mask the true state of affiars - the amount of credible information in the public domain pointing to our country’s lack of good governance is enormous and there is a need for those in power to wake up to this by setting up a truly independent electoral commission and the rest will follow.

Ma Mary

There is no country called anglophonia; no people called anglophones who joined with a country called francophonia with people called francophones.

A country called Southern Cameroons elected to join another country called Republique du Cameroun in 1961 to form a federated state. That is the truth. That is the history. Piken, your mother is Southern Cameroonian and your father is from LRC. Wishy-washy sentimentalism and a half century of Camerounese propaganda cannot change the facts of history.

Failure to recognize this history voids any possibility of discussion. A lutta continua.

And THAT, is the crux of the matter!Its so awfully painful seeing a nation drifting towards war and damnation simply because the citizens wont agree to re-endorse the founding basis of same and that because of a few deceitful individuals who think they can distort and erase history.

KNOW THE PEOPLE FROM WHOM YOU READ!


Ongola-Iwondo, who's this man?

This guy came from a very poor family in the South(exact location withheld). His poor family borrowed money from here and there to send him out of the country for greener pastures. It came only after several futile attempts to travel to the states, Britain, and France to no avail.

He's been chaffing in Poland now. His plan's to CROSS to another country as bushfallers put it.

I wonder why he still continues to praise that devilish regime back home that forced him run away from his country. Well, he may be looking for the post of a "secretary assistant" at a ministry. Who knows??? More on this!

My friend you better hussle hard and pay back the debts your parents owe before the money lender finally claims your plot. Nonsense....and know what????

...if you cough, I'll expose your dirty anus! Try and see.

Waiting.

Mr Tayong,

You wrote: "Ricardo,didn't you openly tell this forum that you secretly attend Southern Cameroon meetings (intelligence service) when confronted by Pa Ngembus? Whose CIA are you employed by? Cameroon ?Is this the Cameroon of Yang Philemon or that of forefathers you want to build?"

Answer: No, Mr Tayong. I openly attend every meeting. If you have attended some meetings, you should know me very well.
I am a Patriot, and my grand parents have shed their blood to defend and free Kamerun. They were murdered by the French and their colonial puppets. I am sure you must have read about it somewhere.
I am defending the integrity of Kamerun. I see myself as an African not a British or French.

Rexon, you wrote:
"Once more, this unquestionable psychopath and evil genius in the name of ricardo will pop up with his rhetoric and lies to derail public opinion from listening to the truth. You can't force God-fearing people to support this kleptocratic Biya regime and blood thirsty government."
Rexon, what makes you think that anyone who disagrees with your song of hate and division is working for the GOP?
One thing you must understand Mr Rexon is Cameroun - Cameroon unity and integrity is UNTOUCHABLE my friend. If you care about our people, dont sit in Sweeden. Go to Cameroon and start something. Be proactive! Dont hide behind that attitude of "is the government's fault". There are many Cameroonians successfully accomplishing things in Cameroon. Private Radios and Tvs beeing created, private University (Medical Schools) businesses etc....
Cameroonians are winning elections in Europe, America etc... Where are you Mr Rexon?
Bottom line, Cameroonians and the world want Cameroon united even though we are looking forward for changes that will make our Country stand to its full potential.

Ma Mary said:
"There is no country called anglophonia; no people called anglophones who joined with a country called francophonia with people called francophones."

"A country called Southern Cameroons elected to join another country called Republique du Cameroun in 1961 to form a federated state."
Answer: Ma Mary, Cameroon history did not start in 1961. We have told you time and time again that you selectively choose that your so called "historical colonial facts" to suit your propaganda in this forum.
The will of the people of Cameroon is holding our Country united.
The British and the French did not make Cameroon, Ma Mary. The Germans will tell you that. They only divided Kamerun for their selfish administrative purpose.
Ma Mary, why dont you defend our african identity? Your cultural identity is Cameroonian...

In the Cameroon of the future, there will be no Anglophone, Francophone, ewondo, beti, bamileke, fulbes,douala, mbos bakweris etc,... But Cameroonians with a pledge to a legion of a flag:
"GREEN, RED AND YELLOW"
"ONE CAMEROON, ONE PEOPLE, ONE DESTINY"

That is the Cameroon CAADIM is fighting for...

May God bless our beautiful Country, the Republic of Cameroon!

You dont have any moral integrity when it comes to talking about nationhood. When the foundations upon which a nation is built are shaken that nation risks falling apart and that's the case with Cameroon.You know this definitely and choose to destroy it.

The forefathers of the beloved land of ours would scream should they be alive to see whats happening to this nation taken hostage by regime. Ricardo I know Yang Philemon better than you do and rest assured you guys cant succeed to destroy this nation.

I dont know of any nation today called "Kamerun" on the world map but a two state entity called Cameroon whose binationality is at the brink of collapse.

Patriots are those who fight to restore the very foundations on which that nation was built not those who for selfish reasons convive with hencmen back home destroy that the nation.

Now you want to dissociate yourself from Yang by saying you attend all meetings.Yes in your disguised form you attend all meetings to gather informatiom for your masters. From meetings to will attend all "Njangi" houses.Keep on attending meetings. Time will tell who hates Cameroon.

Riccardo,to be able to solve a problem,we must first acknowledge its existence,identify its cause(s);assess different solutions and most importantly have the good faith to implement them.
now you're right about Kamerun,but then Kamerun is not The Republic of Cameroun.Any reference to Kamerun will have to take into account the "Northern Cameroons";and that would only compound a simple problem.Kamerun was subjected to external forces that at different points in history shaped and re-shaped its identity and destiny;that so and until the 1961 plebiscite when an oppotunity availed itself for Kamerun to witness a rebirth;hence the significance and importance of that particular to true Kamerunians not that history began that year but then history would have been made that year.Well (unfortunately?),THe Northerh Cameroons decided to jointhe Federal Republic of Nigeria and become as a state equal in status to the others in the nigerian federation.The Southern Cameroons decided to join with The Republic of Cameroun to form a two state federation called The Federal Republic of Cameroon with a flag as you rightly say Green Red and Yellow but then with TWO STARS IN THE GREEN BAND.So you see brother,the year 1961 is very important to us all because it marked the birth of a beautiful nation;a nation born of love trust and goodwill.Today that same peice of land is full of hate suspiscion and deceit.Reason why citizens of goodwill suggest we go back to the former.A STRONG UNITED AND INDIVISIBLE "FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF CAMEROON" WITH FLAG, "GREEN RED AND YELLOW,WITH TWO BEAUTIFUL STARS IN THE GREEN BAND"
ONE NATION ONE DESTINY UNDER GOD!

It is sad and to an extent tragic comic to realise that we have been relegated to keyboard activists and internet politicians. And I find it somewhat simplistic and fodder for genocide to push the problem Cameroon is facing today under the topic ‘Anglophones vs Francophones. People, stating the obvious does not bestow on us the status of ‘intellectuals’. It doesn’t take glasses fabricated by the NASA in the Arizona desert to realise that Cameroon has a problem, neither do we need to look to hard to see what that problem is. Greed is what is killing is killing this nation. And is it a trait found in Anglos and Frogs alike! And I pray that by some divine intervention that it is not a ‘hereditary’ gene and that is it has not been generously handed down to the youth of the nation.

Once more I would reaffirm that I pledge no allegiance to any political group or faction as it is my humble opinion that should Biya and his puppets, Fru and his circus and even the Secessionists and their theories be put into one giant pot, they would all boil at the temperature called LANGA!

It would be foolhardy to refute the fact that Anglos suffer a degree of marginalisation. All minorities scattered all over the globe do. What I refuse to acknowledge is the fact that the stone should be thrown at every frog. That I am sorry to say is totally wrong, and what kind of future are you the elders leaving to us the youth by teaching us to identify the enemy in each other? Be it the frogs saying the Anglos are pieces of excrement and be it the Anglos saying the frogs are thieving bastards.

There is a saying that ‘When elephants fight, the grass suffers’, and the Cameroonian youth is suffocating in the nuclear dust created by the constant clashing of our fathers and uncles. It is this perceived lack of opportunity, growth stagnation and the thought of impeding doom that has sparked the ‘Bush falling’ frenzy among Kamer’s youth and the brain drain that has resulted. And who can blame us? On any given day walk by the French Embassy and you will see how many ‘young frogs’ share the same frustrations with the anglos at the British consulate and ‘Etas’ embassy.

Fathers and big brothers let us stop pointing fingers and calling names, that is just too easy to do. Let us map out workable, achievable solutions to the problems Cameroon face, if not for your sake (because wunna time di cam pass) for the sake of the kids you so sweatily seeded.

It is neither the CPDM, nor SDF nor the SCNC that puts food on the plate of the average Cameroonian, NO! It is the sweat they pour in the hundreds of markets scattered all over pays, it is the back they break in the farms and the petty stores they tend. It would be ignorantly bliss and far too utopic to believe that 16 million people can live in perfect harmony, but insults and finger pointing never built any nation, ACTIONS and SOLUTIONS did. Quit with the beer house politics.

Make I leave wunna ma grand them.

Akoson

Mr. Tayong,

You got something a lil wrong above if I'm not making a mistake you said Southern Cameroons've a population of about 3 million people. NO, my friend. Check your records again...

Liste, the Southern Cameroons has a surface area of 43,000 sq. km and a current population of about 6 million people. It is thus demographically bigger than at least 60 UN and 18 AU member states, and spatially bigger than at least 30 UN and 12 AU member states. Located in the "armpit" of Africa, it is sandwiched between Nigeria and Republique du Cameroon like a wedge betweeen West Africa and what in effect's still French Equatorial Africa. It has frontiers to the West and North with Nigeria, to the East with Republique du Cameroon, and to the South with the Equatorial Guinean Island(the name of the island just slipped ma memory).

Please, note that these borders are well attested by international boundary treaties.

These figures are accurate! If they're not, they can be only SLIGHTLY different. That's only if ma memory's not working well now. I bet someone like Rexon has got all data about this.

The SON.

Now you are talking. Some sense seems to be coming out unlike the other fellow up there. Now let me unravel a few things on this issue since it appears you're new to the whole show in here.

Just as my good friend Vito puts it up there, Southern Cameroon decided to form a nation with Eastern Cameroon while Northern Cameroon decided to join Nigeria. Southern Cameroon has always loved to remain in this Union provided their own identity is preserved within the Union. They have never, until hell broke loose recently, advocated for a seccession.

A regime that caters for its people will immediately call for a dialogue under such circumstances to examine exactly the root causes of such advocacy. It's not by brutal arrests torture and intimidation that national uprisings are quelled.

Men of goodfaith not even of Southern Cameroon extraction have tried to make the regime to see reason in resolving the issue diplomatically, rather the regime employs Yang et co to distort international opinion unfortunately at the expense of the tax payers hard earned currency.

Pekin, the real enemies of this nation are people who refuse to acknowledge the existence of the countries' problems but rather go deceiving everyone all is well. They say there isn't any Southern Cameroon identity issue etc , the country is in good shape, patata patati.

Let me say this in this forum for the very first time and to the shocking discovery of many. Im a human right activist of the Southern Cameoon extraction and dont even militant in any political party not even the SCNC . But the truth remains the as a Cameroonian I cant stand to see the nation shrink into the abyss with feymen taking it hostage by trying to stiffle any effort towards national dialogue and reconciliation.

That's not the way our forefathers intended in to be. Late Ahmadou Ahidjo told the UN in 1959 he wouldn't use numerical strength of the French Cameroon to impose any idea on "his brothers" under British rule but will at every moment consult them for a way forward. This spirit has disappeared and today replaced by complete assimilation policy.

So Pikin there's a problem that needs fixing.Join us for our nation to stand else we risk having shreds of what used to be the nation of Atangana, Felix Ouandie, Reuben Om, Tumazah et co

@ Agbor T

I read your good posting and must admit we can’t always write everything (we at times guess the other interlocutor will read between the lines) and by so doing I acknowledge you’re right on most of the issues…I’m very objective Man, and I know the situation back home…and at our own level, we(each and every one) try as much as possible to help our Country though not physically present everyday. A popular musicain in Africa said : „la verite meme en prenant les escaliers finira par arriver”.

@ Tabeng Tayim |
Though the the US Ambasador might be right you should also understand the motives under these comments . Why are the US suddenly turning back to Cameroon after 16years(when Mrs. Cook was the US Ambassador) ? Why is America so interested in investments in Cameroon than in other African countries today? Have you asked yourself these questions?

Talking about the allusion made on Malcolm X and MLK, I refer mostly to the Malcolm before before March 8, 1964 some weeks before his pilgrimage to Mecca. You’ll accept with me that he made more harm than good to his people…but the guy who came back from the pilgrimage acknowledged certain facts and almost coverged to MLK view of things (had the former lived for 2 or 4 more years, America would’ave been different even today).

We’ll never REALLY know what happened during the Foumban Conference (during the days and nights in the different rooms) long time before the reunification; that wasn’t a problem of the ballot…

@ vito
The theme of the debate was of course from lecture of the article BUT AS USUAL, the majority deviated from it bringing up some bumpkinish propaganda trying to divide.

@ Akoson
Now, permit me to lower myself to your level and retaliate very swiftly to your languish insinuations: from your writings it is very easy to depict the type of abominable vulgar dolt you are. I’m sorry, but that’s the least I could say.

Who Am I? I’m just a human being like you but with a difference because I ‘m blessed to know both sides of the world in or out of Cameroon. For sure we’ll agree on one thing: there are two worlds back home as well as overseas.

One thing should be clear between us, this forum isn’t the ideal place to boost ones CV but let me tell you this: there is no place in this world I ‘ll travel to without having the treatment I richly deserve independently of my temporal stay…and this is not due to a particular nationality but thanks to my modest accomplishments. Poor brother who can’t even read between the lines! Take good care of yourself !!


@ Y’all
In the light of some of your names(IDs) and your postings, one would have expected you to put forward the "myth of the cave". That is, showing some rationality, objectivity and tact… and that you emit a judgement deprived of all the epistemological obstacles and independent prejudices and sensationalism subjectivists. But one assists rather at reaction which translates the doxy in which you seem unrelentingly immersed, making thus superfluous the noble ideology this forum….Aaaah Cameronians, a band of comics!


Now let me have a break and vacate to my different occupations. Whenever possible and if judged necessary I’ll put up a very noticeable posting as done at least the last 48hrs…but for now I already know who really can debate. So done, I wish you and your families a wonderful weekend with all the things you so richly deserve…


Best regards,

This recent report about the deplorable position of our country is ever obvious.
The present regime is truely a handful of greedy threats to the progress of our country.
Eloquent criticism of our management system without a veritable proposal to a path of improvement or moving foward is just as bad.Cameroonians at home and abroad from the year 1988 till date can agree to a greater extent that the system is heading to a total full stop.
As a primary step towards nationwide development an progress, i implore all Cameroonians to treat their nation just as their household maanagement.The next should be a more belligerent approach to dealing with the bad managers on the ground.One of such methods is to abstain totally from a civil activity like elections.Naming and shaming, incarceration of corrupt theives,speaking out loud without fear nor favour(the truth) remain the key steps without ticking war as an option.There is a looming view in my mind that Cameroon, as a nation need to pay a huge sacrifice of (human life and collosal damages) to see progrressive change.This should be the last option otherwise the next gouvenance perception index would still remain the same.

Feli

Rexon,
you are not the author of the article you posted on Thursday, 16 November 2006 at 06:09 PM seen below, so why did you attach you name beneath it? The article was written by a pro-democracy campaigner of the Cameroon Campaign Group who believes in genuine change in Cameroon through legitimate, free and fair elections. This is ideologically and fundamentally different from what you have opined in this forum since its inception.
You do not want to tell me that Rexon, the hater of La Republique, has suddenly changed his stance to clamour for an independent electoral commission.
Please, to change Cameroon we need a high degree steadfastness. Anything tantamount to that is pure distraction.

Interesting piece, Feli. This system automatically signs you at the bottom of any piece you post on the comment, so for example Feli under the piece you posted was automatic. Therefore people may want to state the source if posting something from another author.

The main characteristic or the people defending the oppressor is the blame the victim syndrome. Southern Cameroonians and Camerounese who are out are there not because they hate their countries but because of the criminals in power.

There are two different things happening here, and it is important not to confuse them. Even if la Republique du Cameroun was pure and clean, annexation and voiding of the contract of incorporation of the Federal Republic of Cameroon by one of the partners is not something that we shall sweep under the carpet as the individual who goes by Ongola-Iwondo(the Kumba Ewondo) suggests.

The corruption and electoral malfeasance is another matter. There are interests in la Republique who would like us to focus on the one and not the other, so that they can continue to rule us and feast on our labour and resources. Sorry. Will not happen.

Let me come in here again.I almost strayed into a reverie reading from the new breed of Havard trained vacilitators.But as we usually say in Africa, a cooking pot for the lizard is a cook pot for the Chameleon.When somebody is promoted within the ranks of the various dark forces that compete for ostentation to destroy Cameroon,he or she always makes a promise to his ringleaders, and co-pilots.He would promise them to tell the truth to those idiots who dare bandy looks with the divine rulers of Cameroon. Their neurotic minds start pouring venom following the same pattern:
1. First they are always people who have naturally sacrificed for Cameroon,or the SDF and would want to be seen as the mouthpieces of a group of people discriminated upon.
2. They always conceal their identities,
involve themselves in identity theft, and impersonation.
3.Hubris always blinds them into opting to publish their CVs here.
4. Primitivity makes them to celebrate the new delicacies they enjoy in their new Eldorados,from food,money ,and education.
5.In their bid to impress readers,they will use all languages to tell their stories,from pidgin to English,from English to French and back.
6.Their stay on the forum is always shortlived ,because someone who gives away much during his first outing would not have a leg to dance on when he is subsequently attacked from all directions.
7. They always capitalise on regional dichotomies to inflict psychological pain on others.
8. They always have one behavioural pattern;
trying to defend that which cannot be defended,thereby exposing their intentions.

THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK.
- " I think enough is enough.We of the left wing canno longer associate with this Graffi group.Btw, it is they who come to the Southwest for survival.If you disagree, why do you refuse to leave Kumba even when they ask you"
- " Can someone involved in government give us the positives of this arrangements? You can say what you like,but the government as i see is currently trying its best.No one wishes you goodluck in your unholy quest ,and it can almost completely be said that you have no chance to succeed. You are working against people and systems that are by far your betters" Hmm!
- " Kumbaboy,i don`t want you to soon become Bamenda boy,you must stay down there as 'Cam no go'.Terrorists are serving time in Kondengui drinking cold water garri without sugar. I just finished my nice roasted British beef for super"
- " There`s someone who makes some very good comments about Ni Ben. His name is....I`m Ni Ben`s supporter,and Ni Ben wants to meet him,to thank him for the good job. If its you lets go and meet him"
- " For sure we'll agreeon one thing:there are two worlds back home as well as overseas. I`m blessed to know both sides of the world in or out of cameroon.There`s no place in this world I'll travel to without having the treament i RICHLY deserve independently of my temporal stay"
-" My dad is Francophone, my mother is Anglophone.I was raised in Yaounde...and as long as there is God in heaven,and as true as our forefathers,and ancestors fought for wht they believed in , Kamer will survive"

nahjela

I don tire this Ambazonia (what kind of name is that by the way?) rhetoric. Only blah blah blah. All talk and no action. Repetitive use of that name does not make it any truer. Just toothless bulldogs. So-called Ambazonia can never be handed over to you, it has to be fought for. And having realised that the most are a bunch of cowards, if you continue in this manner (all talk and no action) it will NOT HAPPEN and I refuse to have be a part of such a movement. Another thing, not being neo-SCNC is NOT synonymous to being unpatriotic. We just don't share the same vision for saving the average Cameroonian from this mess. So Rexon and co. when someone has a different view from yours, I find it very foolish, condescending and ignorant of you to label her/him as Frog or any such shite
