R. DeSouza

This is a really lame story. And I bet there will be no follow-up. Are journalists not meant to do some investigative work before writing up their stories? Talk to the parents, neighbours, friends, or whoever! But try to get a true picture before you feed us with stories told in 'mbuh' clubs!

NUBIA

THE PROFESSIONALISM THIS NEWSPAPER PRESENTS IS BELOW EXPECTATIONS, THE JOURNALIST DO NOT SPEND ENOUGH TIME RESEARCHING THEIR STORIES OR EVEN NARRATING THEM TO US.

THE EDITORS ALSO NEED TO PUT MORE TIME INTO EDTITING THE SCRIPTS BECAUSE THE SPELLING AND GRAMMAR MISTAKES ARE TERRIBLE, I KNOW WE HAVE GREAT EDUCATION IN CAMEROON AND ARE BETTER THAN THIS.

STEP IT UP A NOTCH GUYS, THANK YOU

joe tanyi

What exactly is the problem with DeSouza and Nubia? This is a fairly straightforward story; girl kidnapped, parents tipped off, police intervenes, girl is rescued... Why on earth should the Post have interviewed everybody on the face of the earth? Not every story is investigative; sometimes just reporting the facts is good enough. This story did not want anything more... not even a follow-up. The girl is back where she belongs. End of story!!!

As for the alleged spelling and grammar mistakes in this paper, I will be happy if Nubia could provide us with 10 of these errors(since they are so many...) in the current edition of the paper...

bernard baiye

Ladies and gents of The Post,sincere thanks for feeding us with grass root and all round info. Frankly the guys, trying to paint bleak and red the credit of the info you provide need` look around them a little.I`m in total accord with Tanyi, why should you see failure everywhere and even where there seems so little or none you try to conjure one.
Now, i beckon your indulgence to say thanks to The Post. We`ve online news from Cameroon like no other Cameroonian newspaper does online. Check this link www.onlinenewspapers.com and brouse to newspapers in Cameroon and from there, you`ll be able to tell which online Cameroonian newspaper does better.It`s not a question of comparing with mediocrity but simply saying what`s real. You navigators,readers, call it anyway, The Post`s doing a marvellous job, aren`t they?

Ngange Nfor Ngala

Fellowmen Baiye and Tanyi, I appreciate your comments, but let us be realistic here. This story is told as it is, ending with the suspense of investigations to be done, but as professionals in the field of journalism, a proper reporter has to take a story to its end, and such an end will be only when the result of the investigations are known. You never know, though flimpsy it seems, but the conclusion of it being kidnapp is not proper. No motive for kidnapp is established, ad te girl seems to have been comfortable when found, with no restriction of movement. So she could escape, but didn't, why, you have not questioned that. How old the girl was, not mentioned. Suppose she is a grown-up, it could be presumed he intended marriage or something, which I won't term forceful, because there is no prove of resistance on the part of the girl, merely her saying she was threatened, which is discredited as she was not restricted, nor tried to escape. Actually, the safety of the girl is important, but finding her does not mean the story ends there. The reporter, and or police shoould go further to establish the reasons bei=hind such an act, and this might relieve the claimed kidnapper from crimibal responsibility. we are not here to argue, but we should not equally criticise others in the manner you criticised the distinguished ladies- De-Suzie and NUBIA. This forum is given by the news organisation, and just like you, they have the right to give out their comments. These comments would help the journalists correct any errors they might have made.
