To refer to the courageous Independent Press in Buea and Douala as "smaller private papers" smacks of sneering and jealousy by Dr. Shey Peter Mabu – Assistant GM of SOPECAM.

The Assistant GM is a prolific journalist but his mind is being corrupted by the temple of Julius Caeser. Is Dr. Mabu referring to the courage of the private press or its circulation volume as small?

The most misinforming paper today in Cameroun is Cameroon Tribune. The paper failed to accurately report the birth of the SDF in Bamenda. Despite enormous resources at its disposal, SOPECAM is unable to maintain an interactive and current website for Cameroon Tribune, with provisions for public commentary on its editorials and articles. SOPECAM management is either shielding itself from public censure or is caught in a personality cult under the spell of its erstwhile unknown female GM.

Shame on these heads of dysfunctional corporations who occasionally visit the provinces with an inflated superiority that is not backed up by demonstrable performance at the places they lead.

Cameroon Tribune continues to fail to report accurately on events in Cameroon. In recent commentary, the paper seems to be at a loss why Nigeria has not pulled out of Bakassi. It failed to correct the revisionist theories of Dione Ngute and Philemon Yang!

Cameroon Tribune may have a larger print volume per run but most of it is not read but used as packaging material for batons, soya and puff-puff.

If anything, Dr Mabu should visit the Post in Buea to learn how a modern provincial newspaper has evolved to capture and communicate interactively on all media and at full blast around the World.

The Postnewsline has become the standard of reference. Cameroon Tribune on the other hand is slowly becoming the Fib’une of Yaoundé - complacent, moribund and detached.
