Fotso Divine

It's nice to read an inside perspective of the opposition's failure to chose a common presidential candidate in the last election from one of the main actors within CNRR.Except for the SDF and UDC to some extent, our opposition parties and leaders are constitutive of people without vision and principles.What do you expect from administrators cum politicians? Nothing.The One-Party system instilled in these people the sense of power and personality cult. They see themselves as future presidents as a right but they lack the merits. Hear them talk...No iota nationalism. They think first of their tribes and families than Weber's utilitarianism.In fact, they are in search of a political niche and space of their own. What can people like Tchiroma and the rest offer? Do they have political constituencies? I suspect the way forward is for Ndam and Fru Ndi to mend their personal differences and create a new path for the future of cameroon. In doing so, they should strive for political reforms than personal political ambitions. For example: what is wrong in radicalising for two rounds presidentila elections etc

Che Sunday (Dr.)

"They were an ill-sorted group of men, most of whom came from parties where colleagues are regarded as subordinates who [most] give unquestioning loyalty."
This quote literally sums up the plight of the Cameroonian people who thought salvation lay within the opposition. The question now is, have our people become any wiser? How long will they continue to support political parties that are not open to public scrutiny?
I also like to differ with Mr. Fotso where he tries to exonerate the UDC and SDF. If these two were any different from the rest, how come they failed to form a coalition of theirs? That might have swayed the others some what.
How can these opposition parties spend so much time trying to woe the international community to see reason with them, yet fail so woefully in building a simple coalition? Are they fighting tooth and nail to get to the presidency to continue the legacy of plunder, or do they have the slightest desire to do any differently?
