Dear Cameroonian

No body is perfect, even the minister make mistakes. I strongly agree with the idea that what the minister is doing this to impress the international community.
What Cameroonian need do now is to declare war on POVERTY. Our suffering is cause by the white man (Develop nation) not the government.

HERE ARE THE FACTS. The hatred of Black man by the white people is similar to the hatred Hitler had on the Jews that resulted to the holocaust. This hatred is transmitted from generation to generation and the number of blacks kill by the white as a result of poverty had quadrupled the number of Jews kill by Hitler. Please a white man is not a Friend they are the people to fight.

Dr A A Agbormbai

This is highly unprofessional of the minister, to even think that he could get away with this. He's instead doing more harm to the prospects of the country reaching the HIPC completion point.

The Biya government must return to basics to learn the importance of being honest. On the other hand, it is likely that it was a fair attempt at good governance that has been exposed by the fact that 'old habits die hard'.

In that case, the government must work extremely hard to polish up its act. It must also realise that dishonesty is not the way to go about it, as there are many clever Cameroonians who would easily see through the plot. Good work, nevertheless, The Post.

Simon NL,
keep the whiteman out of this.How can Benjamin Amama please the international community at the expence of some people's reputation and wages?
It is worth noting that Amama is a thief. He announced 4.5 billion so that he and his team will deduct this money from the Cameroon budget and squander, and also to make the public think that thier statistics is authentic.Can't you see? I wish to ask what the authority has done since these people have proven thier innocence? Men, do not be confused cuz that's the corruption on the move.


This racket of fake salaries is an age-old and very complex issue. It has many facets, ranging from the deceased to those who have abandoned their jobs in the Cameroons for greener pastures but have continued to earn salaries with the complicity of their former bosses and/or family members.

The fact that this racket has survived this long suggests that people in very high places are involved. They are the "untouchables" with roots in the ruling clan or the CPDM party. They are immuned and have been given a free pass to steal indiscriminately so long as they don't pose any political threat to the almighty Biya.

Though some "foot soldiers"may be netted, the bulk of the "generals" involved in this scam are a no-go area and the PM Inoni knows his limits. So those who are expecting the list of the 500 ghost workers he announced at the beginning of his tenure might be in for a very long, if not indefinite wait.
INCOMPETENCE is the trademark of the Biya regime and what hurts the most is that the poor Cameroonians, especially Southern Cameroonians are the ones paying the price as our natural resources are being drained for the pleasures of these crooks.

To Mr Simon NL,
Do the names Mouchipou Seidou, Titus Edzoa, Ondo Ndong(Cameroonians) mean anything to you? What about Mobutu Seseseko(former Zaire), Sani Abacha(Nigeria), etc, etc. These are people, who, due to their rapacity have brought their respective countries to ruin. Were these white people? Don't get me wrong, I know that we have suffered enormously in the hands of the so- called white man but I think we've come of age and it's time to start pointing the barrel of our guns in the right direction.

King EL

It is extremely sad for the poor people who are chaffing because they have not been paid their money to find their names on a list indicating that they are thieves. That is the problem, we can not use corruption to fight corruption. It is like using death to fight a population shortage. How absurd for a minister to bribe journalists to make him look like he is doing something. We might have to learn to do business in a more intelligent way.

God help us!

lazarus atumche

Those inocent people should take the cameroon govt and the cameroon tribune to court.I prefer the international court of justice because there is no justice in cameroon.


I think what King El said is very correct. i propose those concern should come together and drag the Cameroon Government to court including the minister concern and why not CRTV. They should be taken to the International Court of Justice. Enough is enough in this country. we need the names of the 500 civil servants not the names of innocent 29 person. What have been don to a certain post mistress general who emptied the post office account to the tune of over 400 miliion and when taken to the "So call Kondegui" and detained for some few days to blind fool Cameroonians, the almighty Biya sign documents showing that she is sick and should go on treatment in Paris? Is it because this lady could dance to the rythm of biya's music? Its a shame.

Jean Pierre A

Thank you the Post. This is the kind of story that Cameroon Tribune will never publish and is real news.

Those running the country are better at planification and consumption than engaging in production or enquiry. The Minister deserves to be fired.

The Prime Minister should give an account and reconcile this error with the claims about success at lowering corruption.

What is the impact on HIPC completion point? Is the country going to achieve HIPC completion on paper only? Is that acceptable to the donor community?

Happy New Year in advance.




Happy Christmas and new year to all. I can see that the post news paper is at work now. You have to do your best to x-ray the useless government of la republic. crew of embezzlers.
It is so degrading and discouraging to hear that the ministers and journalist have resorted to blackmailing and defarmation of character of innocent retired people.
I here by urge those concerned ,that is the 29 people whose names are published to team up and approach the International court of justice for legal redress. The minister should be serve with an International warrant of arrest from the Hague. He has to faced trial on three charges i.e Bribery,defarmation,and theft.
These crimes by the minister cannot be considered misdemeanor.This is tatamount to Felony, severe crimes against the state and individuals.
The accused might be tried by an appeal of felony, i.e., personal combat with his accuser, the losing party to be adjudged a felon (see ordeal). The losing party here is the minister, because from all evidence he has no points to defent himself. I am a barrister at law and know what I am talking about. I may personally handle the matter for the plaintiff provided my services are requested
I will end here for now, while wishing all the online readers of the post the best and the entire crew of the postnewspaper.
I am in the united states and will be returing soon.


Good Job Mr Minister? Time will tell if this is another scam or not

Dr. Foncha's resignation letter. A telling document:
Dr. J.N. Foncha's Resignation Letter:
Yaounde, 9th June 1990
Your Excellency,

I have the honour to inform Your Excellency that after careful consideration and careful thought, I have decided to address to you my resignation from the Cameroon's People's Democratic Movement (CPDM) and my reasons for resigning are as follows:
- The CPDM which elected me as its first National Vice President is the party which forms the government of Cameroon and has been responsible for shaping government policies.
- As the National Vice President of the party, I have found it impossible to use my exalted position to help in any way shape or influence the policies of the party and nation because:
1) Demands by me for audience with the Chairman(President)of the party to discuss issues have been systematically turned down.
2) Several memos and representations I have made in writing on several important national issues have been ignored.
During my political career which spans over forty years, I headed the group that campaigned for and got the peoples of the then Southern Cameroons to vote for unification, after which I went from village to village in the then East Cameroon at the risk of my life to calm terrorism which existed at the time. I even housed some Cameroonians wanted in East Cameroon. I successfully had them reconcile with the Ahidjo government. I missed being shot down on my way from Bafang on peace making mission.
After unification, a lot of Cameroonians had confidence in me and when the first Presidential elections were coming up, many people urged me to stand against President Ahidjo. I decided to go for the Vice Presidency instead in order to avoid unnecessary conflict and further bloodshed.
When President Ahidjo decided to get rid of me as the Vice President, a lot of Cameroonians sympathized with me and urged me to make an issue out of it, but for the love of peace, I came back quietly to live in my village as a private citizen.
After settling in my village, I was occasionally consulted on some national issues and I accepted to serve the people of Cameroon in whatever capacity it pleased the powers that be to put me. When the leadership of Cameroon changed hands and Your Excellency became the President of the Republic and eventually head of the CNU, I assured Your Excellency that I was at your disposal and ready from my experience to give you advice you may need on national issues.
Unfortunately this was not to be as it became clear to me that I had become an irrelevant nuisance that had to be ignored and ridiculed.
- I was to be used now only as window dressing and not listened to. I am most of the time summoned to meetings by radio without any courtesy of my consultation on the agenda.
- All projects of the former West Cameroon I had either initiated or held very dear to my heart had to be taken over, mismanaged and ruined, e.g. Cameroon Bank, West Cameroon Marketing Board, WADA in Wum, West Cameroon Cooperaive Movement.
- Whereas I spent all my life fighting to have a deep sea port in Limbe(Victoria) developed, this project had to be shelved and instead an expensive pipeline is to be built from SONARA in Limbe to Duoala in order to pipe the oil to Douala.
- All the roads in West Cameroon my government had either built, improved or maintained were allowed to deteriorate making Kumba-Mamfe, Mamfe-Bamenda, Bamenda-Wum-Nkambe, Bamenda-Mom inaccessible by road. Projects were shelved even after petrol produced enough money for building them and the Limbe sea port.
- All progress of employment, appointments, etc. meant to promote adequate regional representation in government and its services have been revised or changed at the expense of those who stood for TRUTH and justice. They are identified as "Foncha-man" and put aside.
The Anglophone Cameroonian whom I brought into the Union have been ridiculed and referred to as "les Biafrians", les enemies dans la maison", "les traites', etc. ec., and the constitutional provisions which protected this Anglophone minority have been suppressed, their voices drowned while the rule of the gun has replaced the dialogue which Anglophones cherish very much.
The national media has been used by the government through people who never voted for unification to misinform the citizens about Bamenda, deliberate lies have been told over the mass media all in an attempt to isolate the Anglophone Cameroonians who voted for unification and subject them to hatred and more discrimination and harassment from other Cameroonians.
Embezzlement of Public funds in all forms and illegal exportation of our currency by the privileged class seems to go without reprimand but is rather condoned.
The constitution which I have held and preached as the supreme law of the land is in many respects being ignored or manipulated..... Let the CPDM not move towards the direction where it will find itself collapsing faster than many of the "strong" governments that have collapsed in recent memory. My resignation is effective from today the 9th June, 1990.
Thank You.
I have the Honor to be
Yours Respectfully,
Dr. J.N. Foncha

Andre Fokam

thank you Carlet Agbor Etchu
this was a very informative peace of history. this kind of injustice is pitiful and obviously revolting. Dr. J. N. Foncha is a great man who believed a great Cameroon and was shamelessly betrayed. giving up on his vision now will be betraying him a second time. a veritable democracy in cameroon is the best way to address our differences and establish a system that is good for all.

Andre Fokam

ken nteh

just for the record... is that the minister's picture on top of the article???
I just wanna know so that i can identify them when i bump on to them.
Slowly we are heading towards the right direction. Be it to impress the HI...what ever or to impress our bosses, it is the right direction. We cannot expect change to come up when half of us in the diaspora still earn salaries back there. like one person indicated up the line, it is a complicated scheme and unless we accept that we are partly responsible, aint no need to point fingers at any body... and my God stop blaming it on the WH**e man.
