RE: IF PM INONI WERE TO COME VISITING AGAIN....
Bhoudih Adams has sure done some justice to the populace by raising petinent issues that should be addressed by the regime immediately or at least in the short run. But knowing what the short run means in the Cameroonian context, no need to think of it, if you know what I mean.
It is surprising and shocking to see how much effort is put on "Repairs" or "Reconstruction" when there is a government guru heading into town for what ever reason culled up to waste some tax payers money. I wonder why such effort put on such occassions can not become a constant hap so as to attain better communication and transpotation network.
Millions are spent on such visits in order to "Wet the Lips" of greedy old men, so they could come up with flirmsy excuses in the name of motions of support, so as to help rob the masses of the little that is left. Inoni's last visit to Buea was surely one of fanfare and all that....Of course all addresses to the Head of Government were rather indicators of support to the "Chef d'etat" than addressers of the plight of the masses.(Who no wan chop too?)
Projects of benefit to the masses have never been completed in Cameroon. Or if they have, their complition look has always been short lived. The cases of foundation stones laid in Victoria(Limbe)without any industries springing up is just a few of the many in Cameroon. Most often than not, this is always a cunning method to grab some funds from the international community and foreign donors, of which the money is then diverted into private pockets or accounts. Mr.PM, when you visit the Buea area again, do try to see things from the common man's eye.
There is a lot of talk about poverty alleviation. Pretty much, I'll tell you that in the Cameroonian context, poverty alleviation means empoverishing the masses. For what justifiable reason then, is there, to give people licences to operate petty businesses, and then turn around and pull down these structures for the lame excuse that a dignitary is visiting town?. If you are going to pull them down on every visit, why give the licence to operate a business then, if not to empoverish the man trying to make a living?
It's high time, our leaders start playing the roles for the positions that they represent, instead of spending much time in addressing motions of support and listening to these motions of support, while the masses suffer. Motions of support should not be the order of the day.Instead, action and rehabilitation of the structures of government should be enforced so as to better the conditions of we the masses.
Sure we are together.
