That is a good job done there. In fact you have tried your best but one thing.....I mean the only thing that you will impress me here in Germany and my friends is to honour your lost colleagues as heros and to declare the day they were killed by this undisciplined policemen a UBSU holiday.
That means no classes every year on the day...I think its the 29th April every year and students shout wear on black dresses whether a black shirt or trouser or skirt.
How do you see it mola?
Bravo to you all

You are right massamoyo,The 29th April should be made a mourning day in all state universities.I think all the students in Cameroon should dedicate atleast one day a year for their fallen colleagues.They died like heroes at the war front.It was a difficult battle but you guys fought it to the end.
Kudos to Walters, Gilbert and Martin.I hope you guys can now bend down on your books now and make it in grand style

Mola,
Please you and your friends answer the following questions:

1. What were the demands of the students?

2. Which of these demands were turned down by either the UB admin or the Ministry of Higher Education

3. On which of these demands did the students finally obtain "victory"?

When we answer these questions objectively, then we will realize that the "strike" was a waste of time, resources, and human life.

The real heroes are "not yet born"

massamoyo

NI
Ni please to be frank you are not current

NI

Well Massamoyo,

Since you are current, can you please answer the questions that I asked?. what was won and what was lost?

What were the original student demands, and how and why were they modified (if they were)? What were these modified demands and to which of these demands did the government respond favorably?

It is not enough to unleash an orgy of invectives or unwarranted praise on the Internet. We should be able to analyse situation and clearly articulate what the issue was and how it was resolved. Anything short of that is just playing to the gallery and following the mob.

massamoyo

Mr man look in any negotiation or dialogue each partner must give and take. A partner is not going there to obtain a 100% of his/her demands and the other 0%. That is not a negotiation.
Many demands were made by the students and they went into negotiation with the minister. Obviously some demands must be rejected by the minister and some accepted.
I hope this piece has answered your three questions and remember many prises to the students is because they are able to proof to their VC and the Gorvernor that intimidation and treats isnt the key in modern society.Period

JB Samba

Massamoyo. Don't mind him - I mean NI. He is a very narrow minded somebody and thus doesn't understand what has been going on (if he can be asking those baseless questions).

I think the students showed to the entire world that they could ask for something, stand their ground and moreso not intimidated by the forces of lawlessness and disorder we have in cameroon. Even if their demands were not met entirely, I think their show of solidarity and oneness means that some factions of Cameroonians can say "no" to the nonesense of some dictators like Njeuma.
I, as an individual, was thinking that the strike will not end without the head of Njeuma rolling. I mean she will be kicked out of the university and replaced with someone more abreast with solving problems. However, I hope my desire will be met.
I hope that there would be no victimization as the minister promised. I dont trust Njeuma, she can be up to many things.
I will end by saying bravo to the students and thanks again for your tenacity during the strike action.

massamoyo

Ateba CLaude,
Please my brain isnt like the computer memory.
Can you or someone recall my brain if it is not this very Njeuma who nearly destroyed our G.C.E exams in the early 80s and we striked back and said NO?

It is extremely exciting to hear that there is great Joy at the moment in the University of Buea. Thanks to the minister's effort to dailoque with students, not living behind the mayor's great deal to accomplish the mission of peace, unity and prosperity between UB students, and the entire Buea community. Moreover, may we all pray for the souls of our friends who were killed during this incident so that the good Lord grant them eternal rest. Besides, students should take their book work serious as they resume classes. God bless us all

PAOLO ROSSI

THE WHOLE ANGLOPHONE FAILURES STEM FOR THE FACT THERE ARE LESS UNITED INTO SPECIFICS AND FOCUS,
THERE HAVENT GOTTEN THE VISION AND THE PURPOSE OF LIFE, SOO AS TO SUM UP WHAT IT MEANT FOR THEIR BEEING HERE ON EARTH AND AS AFRICANS, AND WHAT AND HOW TOA CHIEVE HAPPINESS AND ALL IT PEACEFUL PURSUITS, IN LIBERTY, YOU CAN ONLY BE HAPPY , WHEN YOPU ARE A FREE
MAN, FREEDOM, CAMES WITH A PRICE TAG, IT ISNT FREE.
IT IS THE ABILITY OF ALL THE ANGLOPHONE PEOPLE TO
BOND TO TEGETHER AND KEEP AWAY THEIR TRIBAL IDENTITY
AND WORK HAND IN HAND AND HARD ENOUGH AS ONE PEOPLE TO
BUILD THEIR OWN CAPITAL, CITIES, UNIVERSITIES. FACTORIES, HIGHWAYS, AIRPORTS,HOSPITALS, SEAPORTS, FARMLAND, ETC, ALL THESE THINGS ARE WELL WITHIN REACH WHEN A PEOPLE PUT THE MINDS AND BELIEF IN IT.

bishop shentu

i don't believe Njuema trust God or even believe in Him
because i don't really understand how students who are part of her institution, were beaten, some were even shot by 'gendarmes' but she only wants student to go to school. isn't that abnormal? does she have a conscience or not to judge her each time she observes some silence.
why does she want them back to school? is it to hypnotise them and control them as she pleases? she has something behind her head.
