Two points in this article grab my attention. (1) Civil servants who use admnistrative vehicles are being asked to "sacrifice" and pay for official windshield stickers, which may not be too much to ask in times of financial shortfalls. Is buying a new plane biya's way of sacrifice? (2) I am very aware of aspects of the HIPC Initiative--The Initiative does not call for a government of largess and/or selective implementation of its requirements. What the neopatrimonial regime should do is to allow localities to elect their leaders (governors and mayors--disband DOs) who will be answerable to the people and not to one person. Also, as part of the move to decentralization, independent provincial councils should be set up to monitor the affairs of each province. This is Political Science 101--Why is this so hard to understand in Cameroon? Cosmetic changes meant to lure foreign donations do not serve any purpose.

In the then southern Cameroons,all administrative vehicles would be parked at the administrative garage or the police stations after work.In present day La republique,civil servants use their official vehicles like they own them.When you now ask them to buy windscreen licences,the 'ownership' is being legitimised.The state should be able to pay its own taxes.In international organisations operating in cameroon,management staff pay for all extra mileage as a cosequence of private use of vehicles.Indeed, why do simple things always become so complicated in Cameroon?

It will soon be 50 years, and we have no essential point of agreement with franco-cameroonians except geographical proximity. The ethinic similarities are irelevant to the operation of a country in 2004, meaning irelevant to feeding and educating everyone, providing health care, safety and a good economy. Time for them (francocameroonians) to go, don't you think, Mr Eko?
