Che Sunday (Dr.)

I have one of those rare talent, one that seems to give me better retention of bad things. I still recall a pubic statement credited to Dorothy Njeuma when she was vice minister of education. She was on record as saying that anglophone students at the University of Yaounde often did poorly because of their poor science background. She failed to take into consideration the fact that these anglophone students do all their schooling in English and are required to pursue degree programs in a language they were just being introduced to. If Cameroon higher education institutions were not more of white elephants than centers for academic pursuit, remedial language centers would have been set in place and qualified students with language deficiencies are given an opportunity to start out their studies by learning the language(s)necessary to complete their studies. It is done in Germany, Japan and even next door in Nigeria. The likes of Mrs. Njeuma are opportunists who see themselves as indispenable, but in reality are stumling blocks to progress.The well-learned doctor was on record as saying young professors who were still starting out risk being sacked if they joined their tenured colleagues in a labour/management dispute or strike at the University of Buea.Instead of serving as a go between to advert the strike, she played the hand popularly used in Cameroon administration, i.e, play the bully. When armed illiterates do it, seasoned academics do it. There is no end in sight.Cameroon will be best served if private universities were given a chance to compete with these public intitutions. Yaounde II is located on the outskirts of Yaounde, but not a good road serving it. Year in and year out, students are killed in hurrific accidents and nothing is done. All what it takes is build two one way roads to the school and all head on collisions will be history. So long as no relatives of ministers get killed, nothing is wrong with the system.
Cameroonian students go through a gauntlet of adversities just to acquire an education, lack of hausing, educational materials, schooled on how to beat a dictatorial learning environment, vulnerability to crime and bodily harm, yet, some still make it through. Its a miracle.
