Very poignant. I wonder if things have changed.

That was a wonderful piece there boy Tande! But you left out one sellout villain the sacrificed generation of that period will live to remember. Do you still recall this blackleg called NGOUFACK? What of the student who was roasted in his minicité room by the socalled autodefense only to turn round and hang the bame on the student's parliament? What of our famous Massa Yo with his 'coups bas' against the student demonstrations? Have you also forgotten this lacklustre Agbor Tabi who challenged the students not only to stop at walking but run?Then in a lighter mood our turns at the oasis: The RESTO. This refraim may inspire you to reformulate the poem into a master piece in memory of the unsong fallen heroes of that era. "Je reviens vers toi Resto! Oui je reviens vers toi..." Then His Majesty Ayatollah Kontchou Koumegni would open his fangs to declare "Il y a eu zéro mort! Je vous dit qu'il y a eu zéro mort! Vous pouvez le vérifier!" And you see him staring at you like a blinking bastard.

You see, people in Cameroon have already tried what took place in Egypt, but these francophone African countries are like information black holes and the world did not notice. France did not encourage Cameroon army not to shoot unlike in Egypt. They encouraged them instead. It is very disturbing, all the double and triple standards. Biya's government has adapted very well to demonstrations and protests. The moment there is an inkling of something, they send brutes with clubs. They have informants everywhere. They must be taking lessons from the Chinese and the North Koreans. Ahidjo trained some of his brutes in North Korea. Biya's guards got their training from Israel, and they have that Israel thing down, right to the uniforms, and surely will use the same tactics employed against the palestinians. No matter, change is gonna come. Just keep hope alive.
