One can now understand why Mukete hates bushfallers but that is a broad smear brush, because even in this case many who live in America believe that driving a hummer is insanity especially given the astronomical rise in petrol prices. I can imagine the shock in Buea as if you woke up to see the great pyramid sitting where clerks quarters used to be. Even in America the Hummer is a shocking sight.

Agbor Arrey

Chop for ya sabbi bushfaller. Are sure say custom officers them hang for ya neck like santa clause is coming to Town (father Chrismas dong came from USA) HeHeHe. Make you no take all we UB girls them ma bro na beg are de beg you...

Mac Satan

Goods of ostentation. Real people donot drive a HUMMER even in America and Europe because of its damage to the environment.
I feel sorry for the owner, for there are better things for him to do with his money and I can bet the owner will not be a Bamileke. Chop for ya way.
Learn to embrace a sustainable life style.
Have you ever questioned why HUMMERS are owned by footballers, musicians and the good for nothing so called celebrities?
Simply. Most of them are hollow upstairs and can be exploited by multinationals.
Good day Hummer he goat.If you really did work hard for the money then you will doing other things. I hope you also have HUMMER CONDOMS else you may not drive the HUMMER for long. I am not jealous of you bruv.
I love my dual fuel Honda Civic.

Please why are we still backwards in Africa?Why is it that when someone does something good we never say 'well done'? I ask, why are we still envying our brothers and sisters for a job to be given a hand of applause.Look at what your own brother had done but yet people sya negetive things about him.It doesn't matter where his money is from,but how did it get the money, that's what we should be appreciating him.It's not easy to buy a Hummer today.

There are bunch of richer people in D'la and Y'de who do not express it through cars but houses.So he prefare to have his car.Life is very short and everyone want to amass wealth and have a car and a house to be called successful.

I am very happy to see this.This what parents will be happy to see their beloved son back from "white man contry" do.Why cry for those who will not cry for you.It's high time we start being mature enough to cater for our own needs and look before you leap.

I congratulate the author of the said piece.
Your eloquence and meliflousness is striking. you need to create your own column, u sure make a damn good writer.
Let men do what they must in life, its just normal for the unsuccessful and good-for-nothing to run their mouths.

People,
lets put this story in perspective. First of all, I don't understand why such a story will even be in the papers, its a shame and shows how backward our society is. Secondly, hummers go for $50K which is about CFA 25 mil. Now that is not a lot of money, there are landcruisers, benzs and land rovers which cost a lot more than that. I know we haven't seen hummers in pays but people shouldn't be blind folded to thinking it is that great. I love hummers for their mere size although in terms of performance, they'll be terrible in our Cameroonian roads.
Now we all know that the only reason this guy took a hummer back home is competetion, competetion amongst bushfalla's, many are trying to show who is who and what better way to show it than with a car or a huge house? Cars are all in vain cos we all know what a terrible investment they are. This story should never be on a reknown newspaper like the post though.
muna

NjifenztB.D.(U.K)

Bringing a Hummer to Buea certainly attracted the attention of some people who might not have seen such a moving 'House' before.Thus makes it news worthy.
Its size is self-publicising simultaneously with owner.This is what makes the man happy while enjoying his Jeep especially where i think, he grew up.The fabulous sums of money he paid to the custom Officers before pulling out of the ports barriers must not be minimised.
Everybody is free to do stuff like this if they chose to.whether it constitutes competetive flamboyance should not be a problem.Its a laughable piece of publicity though.


Atabong Christian

Ignorant people, pay a short visit to Lagos and back, then you'll understand why wealthy Cameroonians should not only buy and bring home Hummers but also private planes and ship if possible. This is a capitalist society and owning even a private ship is no crime. If you are happy with your Honda civic, be happy with it and shut your large mouth. I'm sure you'll like to have a 4runner tommorrow, why not contact this young hummer owner to show you the way to become big?

ben ako

Jealous Cameroonians.

Ideally, I would liked for him to spend that money on some form of business venture that would add value to his hometown and possibly employ some of the talented but unemployed youths. However, we live, though it doesn't seem that way, in a free country. So, the man has the right to buy whatever he wants. He has the right to spend his money on anything. That being said, such people should never complain about the lack of development or jobs for the umemployed.

Jose

Common, lets look for a better subject for a good debate. This is very cheesy!

Ticha

Though I got my reservations, that was a juicy article. People with opinions who know the art of writing should be allowed to write, whether or not it is of any reader's taste. I may differ with the writer on certain issues surrounding the mammoth jeep, but I say kudos for a well written piece.

Come on folks, it is just a car like any other. It works like every other common car . The price tag is just for expression of wealth which i see no problem with it . It is a matter of individual choice .
It is of no surprise to me that the writer was compelled to write the story because the arrival of the hummer is a new brand of ostentation car imports.
However,considering the price tag relatively to the other ostentation cars(fararis, mercedes 500>. bmws , royce rolls etc ) it is lower .
Nevertheless, i appreciate the effort and lavish spending of the owner , he deserves it , he surely work hard for his money . Nobody should question his choice of car .
If it is a Cameroon government official , eyebrows normally have to be raised .

Ely

The car was made, it had to be driven, it was bought (by means that really don't concern us) , let the dude drive, let him enjoy his Hummer H2, its a car. He'll come back to the US working double-shifts 7 days a week. So please, let him enjoy his stay love relationship with Hummer! Who knows, he may go back to Cameroon with a Mybach next time....

captainamerica

American here. You are very right. No one respects hummers here in America. The people that drive these huge trucks are usually very rude people. They endanger others on the road, pollute the air, and waste precious resources. Most drive them because the feel "safe" in case of an accident. However, the other cars on the road are not safe from the SUV and SUV tend to rollover, so even the driver of the SUV is not safe.

sinkond

Sad to see you all wasting enegy talking about A Car (Hummer) that was designed
for the purpose of military usage and operations in crazy terrains/roads such as those in the deserts,deserts,etc.....Watch the present War going on in Iraq on tv and you'll notice that most of the Military Vehicles use by the US Army are Hummers...People this isn't a car worth writing about..Now in Cameroon, there are far more better cars than Hummer hence I am puzzled why the post spent time and resources talking about Hummer! I am not in cameroon hence I can't understand why people are so crazy talking about hummer. As one writter said, travel to Nigeria and you'll come to see that Hummer is just like another ordinary Vehicle and not regarded a big deal like it is done in Cameroon

maya

to your greatest surprise the owner is a Bamileke man named Eric nganku in Atlanta Georgia USA.
A soban drop out and eager to become popular so let's not blame him for the stupidity
Let's talk about something important than a mere car

HiLoJayLo

Afrikans - not everything in America is worth copying.

HiLoJayLo

Sinkond we disagree. Hummer is a big deal. If Nigerians are following a stupid trend like dodos it is a shame. Oil is a scarce resource about which people are fighting wars and killing others. If it has to be used it should be used with care. That is what this is about.
