So sad to learn about the exact and worst corrupt practices in Cameroon. This method of corruption is liable to put down a giant economic country in a day. Sacking 500 desperate workers as the government claims is just blindfolding the innocent and poor Cameroonians. The guys who are damaging this country are those top fraudulent percenters in the name of ministers, directors etc. None of them has the interest of the country at heart. It's unbelievable to see the inflation of bills but it's just real. May God come to our rescue.

The debt relief they are pretenciously passing for now to get will be for their benefit and only their benefit alone because it will only help to increase their bank accounts abroad. The real fight against corruption in Cameroon is still to ever start. A war should be fought in the battle field. The top officials in Cameroon should be targetted, then everybody will stand up. Apart from that, Cameroonians should have no other choice but to peacefully mourn for the gradual decay of Cameroon. So sad.

Indeed, Business in Cameroon fits the description of the 'Balancoire' described above. I Kumbringu, i have personally faced hundreds of corrupt practices in Cameroon, yet i still hold on because Cameroon is my home. The government is stealing from itself and from her citizens. The economy in Cameroon is hanging on a balance and will drop at any time. We, need to come up with new economic strategies and programmes for a counrty like Cameroon. I really see all economic programmes used by the IMF and the World bank, inapplicable to Cameroon. S.A.P, and the others have failed because of the dishonesty of our government, and of the citizens of this country. I bet you 99% of Cameroonians are corrupt, and will not change much if put in positions of responsibilities. Those out always make a hell of noise, about changing things, but often follow the foot step or even become worse than their predecessors. We, the other 1% are struggling in a battle, that is almost impossible to win, but however, we will succeed, afterall who thought David will knock down Goliath. The few of us decent and well cultured business individuals will succeed in this hostile environment. Forward ever Cameroon.

Don Sinsai

In reaction to the part on corruption, I urge all readers to join in saying the following prayer at least once a week, imploring Our Heavenly Father to change the hearts of our leaders. The prayer is already current practice in Bamenda Archdiocese, from where it originated. It is as follows: "Heavenly Father, You always provide for all your creatures, so that all may live as you willed. You have blessed our country Cameroon with rich human and natural resources, to be used to your honour and glory, and for the well-being of every Cameroonian. We are deeply sorry for the wrong use of these your gift and blessings through acts of injustice, bribery and corruption, as a result of which many of our people are hungry, sick, ignorant and defenceless. Father, you alone can heal us and our Nation of this scourge. We beg you, touch our lives and the lives of our leaders and people, so that all may realise the evil of bribery and corruption and work hard to eliminate it. Raise up for us God-fearing people and leaders who care for us, and who will lead us in the path of justice, peace and prosperity. We ask this through Christ Our Lord, Amen."
About torture, the "balancoire" and the like, let us hope that the newly created International Criminal Court should get to hear more of these stories and see into Cameroon's case of human rights abuse along with Sudan's. The SCNC Brief in Banjul against la République du Cameroun already contains some of these gruesome stories. Again, let us hope that the right person will take note of them and act.
