This is an example of a True Son of Cameroon giving his own critical point of view of the Biya's Regime.
Thank you Prof. Asonganyi.
Please keep on opposing the Regime for a Real Democracy in Cameroon.
Progressive Cameroonians are needed today more than ever.
With constructive criticism, we will weed out all evils in our society.
Democracy is coming and your work will be remembered by all Cameroonians.

May the Almighty God Bless you!

I wish you merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

CAADIM (CAmeroonians Against the DIvision of our Motherland)

Wilson Lobe Eseme, MD

It takes a courageous mind to say the things Pr. Asonganyi is saying. While we appreciate this fine criticism, we would love to hear more about proposals for change.
Sir, your seat is certainly not enviable at this time, but you are not known to submit to demagogy.
Lead on Sir, lead on!

Asonglefac Nkemleke


You spoke our minds. You reviewed the year so eloquently we barely have anything else to add. Helas, "cry the beloved country". But then who is listening? Those upstairs remain adamantly immuned to their positions: cling onto power and use the power to boost personal egos not solve the nation's problems. Yes, the nation is adrift on the turbulent waters of today's world: leaderless, hopelessly tottering towards the brink. The absentee leaders are so full of themselves they ignore the judgement of history...if a history there is to look up to. As we enter a new year, can leadership sit up, take a long hard look at the path it traced for the nation more than 20 years ago, and do something to make things better? Can leadership revisit its own self-proclaimed road map of the 1980s? What really went wrong with those lofty promises of "new deal", "rigour and moralisation", "the higher interest of the nation"? Yes, we remember the early days. We remember the euphoria 23 years ago that drowned the nation and unfortunately turned a promise into a nightmare. But then, the road to development, a corruption-free society, and a fatherland in which selfless service is primordial cannot come riding on the back of good intentions alone. Good intentions like dreams are only as good as when we wake up from sleep after the dream, roll up our sleeves, and go to work to make the dream a reality. Can Cameroon's dream ever become a reality given the same dreamers? The answer is not blowing in the wind. The answer is in the hearts and minds of all of us: Cameroonians from east to west and from north to south. Cameroonian sons and daughters,speakers of English as well as speakers of French. For, who else but us Cameroonians are Cameroonians? Do we expect some Martians to take us out of the abyss into which we have so shamelessly let ourselves into? Power is sought with a purpose: in the general sense to serve the goals of ensuring prosperity of the people by the people and for the people; not power of the self, by the self, and for the self. Yes, we remember the early days: not nostalgically though, but with a sense of purpose, the purpose that the nation, the fatherland, "this good old country" (to use the late Etub"Anyang's words) is the home of every Cameroonian not some Cameroonians. It is not too late. But those upstairs must emerge from their comfort zones and face the realities confronting every single citizen. For the nation only exists because there are the people. And who are the people other than Cameroonians?

"Age or longetivity in power should breed wisdom and action not indolence"_Asonganyi.

That is the most grounded and effective statement I ever heard throughout 2005 from a person who needs to apply it to himself.And why not, to all the octogenarians in power.Long live Cameroon.
Happy X_Mas and a Proserous New Year to all patriotic comrades of our motherland,in the Motherland or the Diaspora.



A true picture of the Country.
Thanks Prof. I hope you will be able to propose solutions to the failures you raised.
Where is the voice of the people?
My best wishes to Mr Asonglefac Nkemleke and his family where ever they may be. And to good old Zachary Nkoh. Its been a long time since i last heard your voices but it is equally very hard to forget the last time, some 20 years ago.Oh dear Cameroon, where art thou fathers.
'Truely the beautiful ones aren't yet born'(KA)
Let us pray ....................... Amen.
