IT IS NO SURPRISE!
It is no surprise that Professor Asonganyi was sacked from the SDF party. We all expected this. We are now waiting to see how the party that is virtually in shambles would reorganise itself to merit the support of countless Cameroonians who still dream of change through the SDF.

The courts (NEC)as the post reports can turn white into red i knew That Prof will be shown the door for trying to talk againt Fru Ndi. NEC should try fru ndi for saying that there is nothing like Founding Fathers over crtv.For him to say that it was only Dr Asanga and Himself is wrong .we know that the two of them did sign .We also know that not more than 2 persons would have signed .Also the SDF has some in its constitution as founding fathers .For FRu Ndi to have redicule this body through his interview needs a saction against him.
Also the Founding fathers should not over dramatise their role as founding fathers.This doesnot mean that Ndi has the Gods to talk against them as he usually does.He has spoken against Mukong,CaLson Anyangwe Ngwasirri and is acussed of causing the death of Dr.Asanga whom he says they both signed for the party.

can he bring other in the house before his team comes to an end .You may be a good leader but you can only take one of your actions to distroy what your have built for years ,Ndi the bells are ringing leason to the sound od the bells else time will be against you

It really never came as a surprise.It is crystal clear that SDF is not and will never be a party to bring change in Cameroon.The Bamenda party is loosing it national strength and support.Instead of them securing members they are dismissing them.That's a way to show how immature those 'execu-thieves' are.

Who told Fru that he can ever,(even by mistake)be the president of Cameroon?The earlier the SDF look for a more competent man(If possible not a Bamenda man) before it's too late then I think it will be advisable for them.SDF is not a "Njangi" house where you take people from any walks of life without a clear set up programme to come and challenge the CPDM.

Someone like Asonganyi who can be a competent person to-be,is dismissed WHY?SO you think the whatso-called Jua can be the president of Cameroon a FAT LIE! All the present challengers of Fru are local farmers in Bamenda I bet you very soon SDF will be left to those who think it's their private property.....

Long Live Cameroon/Cameroonians

Mr. Kiki,

You don't seem to like the Bamenda man. You have your right to like or dislike, what is clear is that the SDF has been destroyed by Fru Ndi. Asanga was accused and dismissed, Muna, same thing and today Prof Asonganyi. Cameroon is too big for you Mr. Fru Ndi, let Mr. Biya continue with his corrupt Government, at least Cameroon is moving.

Hey!!

It is time out. Change! Change! Change! Who should change?Who should change who?In connection to Cameroon, any group of people who organise themselves under the banner of a political party should first of all clean their act-effect convincing change within your group or party before you think of facing the mighty regime.

How can a disorganise household promise positive change when they challenge change within the group or party.I am sure to them change is only for Biya.

They should be brave and face challenge and not be aclaimed as if a party leadship if traditional chieftaincy title which is usually for-unitl for ever anad ever!

Lets us not preach what we can not offer.

Long live our fatherland!

NjifenztB.D.(U.K)

As apolitical as always, my personal observation following the sacking of Mr.Asongwayi does not eradicate the impact of S.D.F as a veritable opposition to reckon with.
Resignations and justifiable or unplausible dismissals is not a new phenomenon.It still remains an opposition.This party wouldnot cease to oppose just because this man has been fired for whatever reasons.Such occurences are not uncommon.

MillaIsGod

Isn’t it strange to see a lot of people reacting as though they are surprise about the outcome of this case? It was inevitable that this guy was gonna get the sack. It saddens me to see what have become of this party which showed so much promise in the earlier years to descend into this movement of absolute corrupt and power hungry nonentities. The quarrels that is taken place in this party reminds me of a “quacha house”.
I have written on this forum before, criticizing Mr Asongayi, however he is a very intelligent man. He seem to be a very level headed and well informed individual who wishes to engage politically with the public at large, about the direction the party is heading. But the politics in Cameroon is not of dialogue but of back-stabbings and tribalism. Freedom of speech is out of the window.
Why are all the SDF people still living the past? This country has changed and the people are savvier and can see through most of the lies this so call politicians alter without looking at the consequences of such rubbish.
BIYA is the most corrupt man ever to lead a country but at least he has a well organised and movement feeding on his every word and actions.
If SDF does not unite it will die! That is if it already hasn’t.

Peace

There is no opposition party in Cameroon, we used to have one but it evolved and merged hahahahah!
We have only the RDPC and affiliates, playing us double card. Ni John is becoming worse than Biya, ans i persnally won't cast my vote for him. A cat that exposes it claws even b4 the mouse arrives, is the most dangerouse cat. Ni john is practicing dictatoship at this stage, what will he do if it were posssible that he rules Cameroon?

Camenji Linus

I am very embarrass with most of the comments and re-actions that have followed Mr, Asonganyi sacking.In every party there are rules and regulations. Why was he sack? As SG, was he supposed to make anti party declarations out of the house? By making those declarations, he knew what was going to happen to him. When he was suspended from his positions he seized party property and arrogantly kept them. I think he deserves what he got. If any of you guys think that it is easy to organize a party without rules and regulations, go and form one.

Bravo to the NEC memebers that took the decision.I look forward to a stronger SDF free of blacklegs like the former secretary general who went about stabbing his own leadership. The convention is there for anyone to be elected to what ever position to aspire for.

Southern Cameroons' nationalists must celebrate the decay of this French/LRC Trojan Horse called the SDF. It outlived its usefullness in 1992, and it's imminent collapse will have the necessity of fully engaging the peoples of the Southern Cameroons to the liberation of their homeland from the wicked and brutal colonial rule of France masquerading as la Republique du Cameroun.

The occupying colonial authority's sub-vassals in the SDF who have been part of the wicked colonial government in Yaounde for some time now (by taking part in the legislative branch of GOVERNMENT (parliament) and the judicial branch: Jua is a member of the Higher Council of the Magistracy - whatever that means) have been clearly exposed as having drank from the brew of francafrique's politics of the bush. They now practice it like the puppet of Etoudi.

As we know, GOVERNMENT involves three parts: Legislative, Judiciary and Executive. With the SDF in two out of those three, they are intimately part of the source of all the criminal and inhuman misrule of both the citizens of la Republique du Cameroun and that of the Southern Cameroons that have reduced them to dehumanizing levels of poverty and indignity while they eat fat and make self-serving deals. The rampant corruption, brutality and outright banditry of the most corrupt GOVERNMENT on earth must be ascribed to the SDF as accomplices, if not active participants in this French-implanted criminal petainiste enterprise called the GOVERNMENT of la Republique du Cameroun.

Isn't it a sad spectacle and quite telling to see John Fru Ndi and a colonial prefet, Jules Marcelin Ndjaga on the same side, as reported by Mutations (see http://www.quotidienmutations.net/ of Jan 31/2006 under the caption "Santa : La route Bafoussam-Bamenda bloquée") against the people of the Santa area whom Baba Danpullo (CPDM bulwark who was at the origins of the lynching of the Babanki Fon) is attempting to disposses of their land?

I can only imagine the colonial prefet with a wry smile on his face, saying "ah votre power to the people ..." Mission accompli!

Bravo NEC for a work well done.Those who are out to destroy the sdf should be sent packing. The sdf is a party of law.There is no democracy without discipline.The learnent prof went too far and merit the sanction.Go ahead NEC, condour with no body who carries out anti party activities.If the Bamilikes are complaining,then they should prepare themselves to grab the post of SG come sdf convention in May.The sdf has proven over time that it is the only party with discipline in cameroon. Have you ever heard of an executive member being sacked in the CPDM? The sdf is a proof of a democratic organisation where order reigns.

Celestine Nke Fosung

I will continually talk to the youths. We have got the learn a great deal of lessons here. While i am not interested in taking sides concerning this case, i will like to state that, those of us who aspire to make a contribution, must understand the task that awaits us. A task of selflessness, the moral responsibility of seeking to serve rather than be served. Above all the task to approach differing view with maturity and calmness. Ours is a long way ahead. That politics will immediately play into the hands of Cameroonians was far from my reasoning. The intent of the disciplinary committee could be good, but again, they should understand the inexperience that militants and NEC members bring into the game. If the disciplinary committee were to sit and revisit cases, Mbah Ndam, Fru Ndi, Mokouri, and a host of others would have departed the SDF. With the difficult political field in Cameroon, we shouldn't hold ethical rules to the apogee of standards while trying to set examples. By repeatedly firing members, even if they broke party rules is not in my opinion the best way. I am in my own way letting those who read in this forum to understand that no one holds absolute knowledge in politicking and democracy. That, we will all make mistakes, and differ in opinion is clear. But when we wouldn't be able to bring people together, when we are always suspect of others, when we think, it is only i who can make the best decisions is ridiculous. If i were to paraphrase statements that Mbah Ndam, Fru Ndi, and a host of others have made, then the SDF would have been extinct. These old generation have made their contributions and mistakes. Lets chose the right think they did from the wrong and concentrate on those. The lesson for us here is that, we have got to have that big heart, and be selfless when ever we get into politics. It is not for those whoe emotions run high, you may disagree with me, it is for the true intellectual-One who doesn't carry himself around, a regrettable situation in Cameroon.

Kennedy ejacha

Dear Brothers and sisters
Why do we maintain blindness? When you read this article by the Post where do you see Fru Ndi Chasing away Asongayi. It is well written that Fru Ndi left the hall and didn't take part in the deliberations neigther did he vote. Please why Fru Ndi's shadow in everything negative. Why do we Cameroonians want to scare away our nationlist? How long did it take for Mandela, Wade, Gbagbo to name just a to liberate their people. I just want to say that the enemies of the people are winning in this war of attrition that they engaged against the people of cameroon. If we don't succeed today it is because of our impatience. We are just behaving like the Jews who sacrificed their saviour Jesus christ when he came to liberate the whole of mankind. Please I want to tell you that if we don't repent from this visceral hatred against a man who staked his life for our course then we as a people shall receive no attention from God. I want to confess here that as an individual I wash my hands off those who want to sacrifice Fru Ndi.
Some of you stay far and make asumptions about things that happen in Cameroon. I want to remind us that some five months ago when chairman Fru Ndi during a NEC meeting raised a motion against Asongayi for alleging that Fru Ndi is spreading rumours that he Asongayi killed his wife the Nec Voted out Fru Ndi's motion. Nobody cried faul. Fru accepted the verdict without any propaganda though humiliating . It is this victory of Asongayi during that NEC meeting that gave him the guts to go along to organise that press conference during which he vindicated the entire leadership and not Fru Ndi alone.
Why are we blind? I have read none of you asking Asongayi to bring out the evidence of his allegations against the leadership. 27 votes against 2 is enough to push us to ask ourself concrete questions rather plunge into invectives that would lead us to nowhere. If you want Fru Ndi to go then offer us a reasonnable altanative who can rally the votes at the convention. Watch out that by his acts Asongayi pushed himself out of the party. Please note that by no magic can Fru Ndi bring change alone to our nation. Our enemies know that well. They know that without you Fru Ndi is nothing. That is why they want to sway you away. Please this is an ultmate cry from a fellow brother. Until proven otherwise I don't only presume but I believe that Fru Ndi still is honest to the course. As for you, I plead that you give him the benefit of doubt until you can have concrete prove beyond reasonable doubt on his betrayal.
God bless us all.

MR Ejacha and Khingala,

You guys have siad it all. Its better to look at the facts rather than being emotional. Why would a SG sacrifice the party for personal motives. I respect guys like Kale,Muna, Jua who do not agree with the chairman and the Mbah Ndam/Yoyo group in many instance but prefers to criticise the party from within. All Parties in Cameroon including the CPDM have internal problems. They have always prefered to solve their problem in the house. So, if you take the party dirty linen to the public, you better watch out because the rules will follow you there. Of course, I regret the fact that one of the sheep in the house is lost. Sometimes, its better to accept that mistakes have been made and tender apologies rather than engage in an emotional intellectual war to generate ethnic sentiments. Asonganyi joint the SDF as an individual and not on the platform of Libialem or the entire SWP.

NEC well done we stand by you.

Nkemasong Philip,
Muyuka,

ASongayi is from SW and Fru NDI wants his currupt crooks from the NW there. Fru Ndi Shame on you. We are waitng for you in Washington DC. I wil never give $1 to the party again. I am an Independent. You cannot heal cameroonians and bring us together. What is wrong with Disent? Why do you think everyone has to argree with you. over the last 16 years, you have stolen from poor cameroonians. Go back to Ebibi. Illitracy is a problem.
S. Westerners should pull out of the SDF and not donate money and lets see if that book seller will survive.

Ashu Loveline

Asonganyi and I are from the SWP. Fru Ndi and the SDF have done a lot for Cameroon and Cameroonian. As others have said, a party must have rules and regulations and the SDF must do same. Fru Ndi and the SDF go ahead and continue the good work you are doing at home by checking the excesses of the regime in power. Of course, there might have been some errors but Asonganyi overstepped his bounds. Fru come to DC and I'll calvanize and organize the population of the SWP, anglophones and francophones to support our great party financially. As one other analysts has written, Prof Asonganyi joint the party alone. I have not only $1 to give the SDF but a few hundred dollars.

Che Sunday (Dr.)

Lets keep these divisional affiliations aside and look at the issue from a factual perpective.
1. From the management of the SDF, how many people really believe it is capable of winning and managing the affairs of state in a democratic manner worthy of the word democracy?
2. Was there anything non factual that Asongayi said to warrant his dismisal?
Was he given the chance to defend his position before the disciplinary body,(NEC) before getting axed?
Please note the pattern here.
Anytime you crictize the leadership of the SDF,you become history. From the Munas, to the Kofele Kales, and the Akontehs. Then, there was the lady who quit and cited tribalism as her reason for leaving.
At its height of popularity, the SDF saw the presidency as the sole possesion of an anglophone before it could truly claim victory. It would have been nice if that were to happen. But with a French phobia for anglophones and failing to restle the seat from Biya, Fru Ndi could have looked among some of its mayoral candidates from our franchophone cities and put them up for the next elections as the party's flag bearer. It missed out on this opportunity placed on a silver platter and ready for the taking.Such a move could have softened France's agitations and maybe also reduced the spectre of a probable military intervention.
Recall that this party had mayors in big cities like Douala. Was it really out of the ordinary to get one of these administartors and groom him/her for the presidency?
Why couldn't Fru Ndi chose one of its mayors as a presidential candidate? This would have divided the francophone vote and with popular support in the Anglophone part of the country, the SDF would have been the residents of the presidency today. Fru Ndi kept putting himself up against Biya. He has failed to re-organize the party hierachy to reflect a national image, and he is slowly losing support from both the South West and Western provinces. The dismissal of Asongayi has nothing to do with discipline, it has a lot to do with lack of vision. Can anyone tell me how the SDF resolved the matter of funds allocation after the windfall that the the Cameroon government gave political parties during the last elections? Mr. chairman took what would keep him comfortable and when askeds, he claimed it was money owed to him by the party? The treasurer did not prepare the payment vouchers, the secretary did dot authorize the payments, nor knew it exact amount. The row hit the press and Mr. Fru maintaned his calm and the issue died a natural death. Just because Cameroon is run by a rotten regime does not make it right to go out and bring in a school of gold diggers and opportunist to take over the mantle.

Amin

Fru Ndi and his tugs--Mbah Ndam and Moukouri etc need to be ashame of themselves. These guys have chased away anyone who tries to question the way this fraud runs the party.Fru Ndi thinks this party belongs to Mbah Ndam and himself.Fru, please, your time is up, you will never be the president of Cameroon.Cameroonians will mrather die in the hands of Biya than stand a guy like you.It was a blessing Biya took you for a ride in the 1992 elections. Fru will be a worse fraud than Biya and he will eliminate any opposition to him more than Biya has done in his twenty plus years.Cameroonians need a new party with people as ambitious as Prof Asonganyi,Muna,Anyangwe or Munzu.

Watesih

This is just the type of chaos Cameroonians like.Some people are only in a stronger bargaining position when the future gets bleak.When people say they are not surprised with the outcome of the NEC disciplinary committee decision ,they are right.Right not because they are going to stop calling Fru Ndi and the SDF names,but right because behind the scenes,they know and accept that Asongangyi went too far.We have said it time and again that a politician who has no personality and has to be spoonfed by others is not worth the salt.The Nyo Waikais and Ngwasiris have succeeded in their bid to destroy Asonganyi politically.They are still in the SDF,but he is out and has no political future.These people know that it is Fru Ndi who has single handedly transformed them into stars in Cameroon.Even having brought them to the limelight,most of them still look very akward.This is just a fitting end to someone who had become a songbird and was made to wash the party`s dirty linen in the market place.Let him launch his own party and prove his professorship now.We have seen people of his ilk before,who today are only licking their wounds.People should ask themselves why Fru Ndi is such a bad man ,but these political adventurers cannot keep away from him.Non of them has contributed in his notoriety as a political star,instead after working with him for sometime,they always erroneously nurse the idea that his academic background should be taken for granted ,thus pushing forward personal agendas.
If there`s dictatorship in the SDF,let all the DRs,Profs,leave the party and form a party of genuises ,with headquarters in any other city in Cameroon apart from Bamenda.Why do they accuse Fru Ndi of dictatorship and keep cosying up to him and a party he launched? Fru Ndi has the steadfastness of all good leaders.He knows how to say enough to these chalatans.When Winnie Mandela wanted to drag the reputation her husband had taken decades to build,he came out strongly and said no.When Jacob Nzuma tried to do same in Thabo Mbeki`s era,the axe fell.

Che Sunday (Dr.)

Watesih,
If you kick out those you believe are inept from the party but continues to go around in circles, you have done nothing. The case of Mandela-he kept the ANC in power. Fru Ndi has gained no grounds on Biya. If anything, he has lost ground. The only thing he has gained is making sure that the party is recognized, and as such, can receive stipends from the government. Just because one is an intellectual is no reason to look away from what is wrong in the interest of keeping a party united. When party unity supercedes national interest, that sets a dangerous precedent that must be challenged. If stepping up and pointing to those pitfalls mean being removed from the party, so be it. Asogayi may be an intellectual, but he is not alone the the shoving aside game that has typified the SDF. When you dismiss someone, prove that what he has done is wrong. Don't say 'as a member of the party, you are not allowed to say what you think the party is doing wrong.' That is sheer arrogance and ignorance. I am not against the removal of anybody from the party. But do so and prove to the public that the said individual has infact committed an offense. Mandela's wife was involved in a murder case. She had to go. Even our hated CPDM took steps to remove one of theirs, the fon of Balikumbat who is also facing charges of murder. Tell Fru Ndi to look around and stop acting like an island in itself.

Watesih

Hi Dr Che,
Bro, i`m afraid you want to take us right into Biya`s old antics of having your cake and eating it.What did you say ,Proofs? You misconstrue the point here.The problem is not that people are removed because they have expressed their observations about the party.It is that those who should in substance see to it that the party remains strong and undivided readily give into a tpye of flamboyance ,when confronting issues that determine the very existence of their party.When you are prone to making salacious declarations against others,know that the boomerang effect is often disastrous.Now he is even said to have illicitly accepted funds behind the scenes.If it were Fru Ndi,all sort of invectives would have been raining on him now.Asonganyi accepted publicly that he was a part of the failed policies of the SDF for the past 15 years,but kept criticising the party and its leadership.You can`t criticise something you have helped to destroy.Logical? I don`t know which grounds you would like to see gained.In spite all plots from all political chameleons,rigging from the CPDM machinery,is this not the only political heavyweight who constantly comes second in elections in Cameroon?
People are not kicked out from the SDF,they make themselves to be kicked out.The empirical proof of their treachery is that more often than not,they switch back to the CPDM.So just take a run down of all those who have been sacked from the SDF,and you will see the proof of not only undermining the SDF,but where they were really headed for.Mandela brought the ANC to power only after having served 27 years in jail.Fru NDI has been put under house arrest,shot at,pilloried,yet he has stood the test of time.Implicitly Mandela`s fight in South Africa was against Britain and America,here Fru Ndi`s fight is against France,so no French sponsored lackies are going to bring fear to the SDF.In places like South Africa,when you are removed,you fall from grace,but in Cameroon when you are removed,you still go about threatening people with bogus notoriety gained from the CPDM.That is just what Fon Doh is doing now.

ateba

The dismissal of Asonganyi has little to do with what was levied against him. The true story is that a SG fell out of the favour of the almighty Chairman of the party and this is the fate that awaits anyone in the party that opposes.
There is only one free thinker in the party - and that is the chairman. Any other person who thinks differently becomes a target.
Come to think of it - what is the SDF today compared to what it was in 1992? Sincerely, has it gained or lost popularity? What has caused it? Too much in fighting, dismissals, back biting etc etc. Fru Ndi can't bring any meaningful change in this country because he is fighting a war on many fronts - his enemies within the party, the CPDM, witchdoctors etc etc.
When I recalled in 1992 when Kontchou Komeni announced election results beforehand and we wanted to react on the spot, this idiotic chairman was the first person to call us to calm saying Kontchou had no right to announce election results. You may think he was being in favour of peace - no, money had changed hands. We are tired of the selfishness and greed of Fru Ndi. You oppose the French but give them your house to host Tierce- at the same time tell us not to buy French goods. Lunatics will take you serious Ni John, idiots like yourself will take you serious, you have outlived your usefulness and are of no value to Cameroonians.
And to Ndobegang, you may take the post of secretary general - it is just the beginning of the dismissal that awaits you from the party too. You should have learnt what happened to your predecessors. SDF, a party for a bunch of fools headed by an all-time idiot who cares only for what enters in his pockets.

Howard Mbeli


Oh poor Fru NDI Pa You said it on that rainny afternoon in 1990. Mandela spend 10.000 days in prison and still came to realise his dream. You are the play writer and the play hero of your play.
Even the people of America Respect you like wise me.

anya fred

Things like this will always happen in any democratic society. If will have to build, then the right persons should be put in the right places. Those who do not know, should know as from today, that once in power, they will always like to remaind there. To me, i do not think there is any true Democracy in Cameroon not to talk of those so call opposition political leaders. In the begining the did had a sense of purpose but now they too have tested monies. if you look at what is happening now in S D F all is because of money. Do not ask me why but go back to court decisions and you will agree with me that all is about money not power.
GOD SAVE CAMEROON.

Wonderful!!! Wondefull!!!
Feymania big time. Ask Lapiro de Mbanga.
SDF don finish. Pipo dem work Njokmanse.
You people take these happenings in the SDF lightly. Many people have died and lost their entire live savings, jobs, possesions and pride because of the SDF. All the members so far dismissed were at one time darlings of the party. As soon as they differ in opinion with the Chairman Fru Ndi and his cohorts, sooner than later they are dismissed.
Lapiro de Mbanga predicted what is happening in the SDF today, a long time ago.
I have a fearful feeling that this same party that mad Fru Ndi great will end up consuming him in a very unsavoury manner.
I am really afraid it is going bonkers as it is very clear that the SDF has got nothing to show anymore, apart from making news for entirely wrong reasons. Negative publicity.
Recently Cameroonians have developed a rather unfortunate reputation of duping people home and away of their resources be it human or financial.
SDF is practising Political Feymania.
My sincere sympathy to the families of all those who have lost loved ones in protecting the lofty ideals of that were put forward by the SDF inits heydays.
Now everything has gone to the DOGS.
RIP Martyrs. The SDF Party is on its way to join you forever. Adieu.

Fred,
I differ with your ideas with regard to the SDF.Can you cite me a country in Africa where democracy was acheived without lost of lives and jobs.Why should the case of Cameroon be so alarming to you.
Asongayi was demissed for his deeds and not because of any personal conflict. Many poeple in the Party still opposed the views of Mr Fru Ndi but like in every soiciety and institution, order must be install at a given period. Is Asongnyi the first person to be dismiss from a political party? Some synical poeple even go as far as linking his dismisal to the the fact that he is from the SWP that is really rediculous.
I might not share the political opinion of the SDF but still think that they have done alot to Englsih speaking Cameroonians and if they should continue to do that , then internatl order must be respected. Politic should never be confused with education and intellectual strength.
Asonganyi should take up the challange and re-do the wrongs and jion back the party like B. Muna did.
I lost quite a lot in the early 90s because of the SDF but do not regrate in any way.so stop inciting people with your emotional thoughts. SDF should be encourage in moments of hurdles like this.

SDF is a real opposition party. It opposes the regime, then, opposes itself!!!
What a mess!!! Remember in politics, not every bad thing is wrong and not every good thing is right.We strive for a good right thing, but we can`t always kill any bad right thing or any good wrong thing. None is perfect!!!

Discipline is an integral part of democracy - no dispute about that. But when differences in approach or reasoning or better still political problems are met with disciplinery measures, then discipline is lacking in democracy. Uneasy lies the head that bears the crown. Whether Fru Ndi was present in that meeting or whether he voted or not, he has failed again in uniting his people. One has to ask whether NEC exhausted possibilities of diplomacy (dialog) and listen to the opinion of Asonganyi before deciding to dismiss him from the party. In other democracies, people are not just sacked like that. This method of blocking diversity in ideas in the SDF is not a positive contribution to the growth of the party. The political platform on which the SDF is fighting is changing. So it is time for those big names to make way for change within the party, because the SDF is not able to meet with the rapdly changing political platform with this Fru-Ndi approach.

Brenda

I took time and went through the above commentaries. My conclusions are the following:1) There is a lot of emotional war going on. 2) Cameroon does not need that
3) Almost all those who voted for Assonganyi's dismissal from the party think exactly the same like Assonganyi. To be moderate, say even worse things in private about their so called leader, Fru Ndi. I lived in Cameroon for five years, met some close people to Fru Ndi, thier public language contrasted in a spectacular manner thier private one. We should not pretend to behave as if we are not aware of the fact that, a president/leader is generally told only what would please him. If I where FRu Ndi, I would vote against excluding the former SDF scribe from the party. When some one argues that Fru Ndi was out of the meeting before the votes were cast, I see how ignorant we could be at certain times. Mr Fru Ndi has done a lot to push the democratic process in Cameroon forward, there is no one disputing this. I beleive Paul Biya thinks the same, BUT Nih John, the greatest minds get saturated at one time and leave the front scene, push others ahead and offer their experience to ensure that what they built continues. After 16 years, after reccurent dismissals from your party with obvious consequences that instead weaken the party, I think it is time that this outright dismissals stop.Reducing Assonganyi to an ordinary militant was Okay, did you and your team needed to have proceeded with this dismissal(even though you pretended to go out during voting)? Whether Cameroonians like it or not, dismissing people from parties to which they freely adherred to and worked for nothing is not a good politics. Instead of doing this, develop strategies that would push people to take the last decision to leave the party. In so doing, they do not only take responsibility for their actions but the world equally sees them as shaky minds. Whether you like it or not, Assonganyi has become even more popular that he really is. The comments of those "public slaves" to Fru Ndi's ideas will not break the chain.

Dear NEC members, I hope you understand the consequences of your blind support for Fru Ndi's egocentric adherrence to the leadership of the SDF. Do look for somebody else, come your convention. Fru Ndi beleives he can rule the SDF/Cameroon as a family Head would rule his home, no matter the number of kids and the plantations he might have. You all know that Fru Ndi is not a good listner.

Dera FRu Ndi, do an honour to you and to Cameroon by not being a candidate to the SDF leadership come, the next convention. I happen not to be you but if I were you I would put forward, the one I had been nurturing to take up leadership, ah! that is, if you had thought about the furture of your party beyond you, except of course you beleive you would remain for ever.

Dear readers,
Let us refocus the discussions. Let us forget about SW and NW. Let us not insult our Francophone brothers and sisters. Let us give ideas that would not only push forward the democratic process in Cameroon but equally make cameroon a place to live in. The above contribution, that is if considered such, goes to all political parties including the CPDM. Where Fru Ndi's name is written (except of course with regard to dismissing fellow comrades) any other political leader's name could be conviniently put in. Biya, you are the number one. Discourage those comrades who are fighting to make you be a life Head of State. You actually gave Cameroonians the freedom of speech, but it is equally time for you to call it quits

I stand to congratulate the N.E.C for the wise decision they have taken to rid the SDF party of dangerous,unscrupulous and uncompromising zealots like Asonganyi.In one of my reactions in this forum(Constitutionality in the SDF:A Farce),I had stated the reasons why Asonganyi should be booted out of the party.I had carefully reviewed the words he used in that infamous interview and those are the points N.E.C has used to rid the party of an old sore.
No individual no matter his political stature within the party can go on air and voice out calumny against the party and go scot free.This is tantamount to 'treasonable felony',moreso as it comes from an individual who had occupied a strategic post as Secretary General.It is clear beyond reasonable doubt that Asonganyi wanted to take advantage of the NW/SW feud that has rocked the party for long now and whose flames he has secretly fanned.Once more those sages in N.E.C have averted an oncoming danger.They have once more proven that constitutionality within the SDF is more of a reality.Let it go forth from this time and place that all those disciples of Asonganyi who are still clutching to the demented hope that they can secretly fan the flames of civil strife in the party will face the same fate.
We must prove to Cameroonians that though the SDF machinary is facing functional problems,discipline will be used to instil order.We have come a long way and we have a long way to go.We are students in the school of democracy and the learning process is far from being over.So no one should sit on the false hope that we are going to attain democratic prowess by the wave of a magic wand.The fight must continue and we must overcome.Cudo's to N.E.C.

When we play politics, nothing is impossible, hence the famous English saying that a day is a very long time in politics. For those who see nothing wrong with the idea of giving more powers to the chairman of the SDF power, their reasoning may be right but we should not forget the environment in which we are asking for such powers. They say power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. If you look at the African case of Democracy, there is a litany of abuse of power. When Yoweri Kaguta Museveni came into power in Uganda, his diagnosis of African leaders’ reasons for failure was that they always stayed too long in power; today we know exactly what he has done to correct that. It will soon be happening next door in Nigeria (extending the president’s mandate). The logic that a country’s or party’s constitution be changed to suit one individual is wrong irrespective of what ever justification we may want to give. I certainly do not believe that any one is indispensable. Neither do I see any individual as whiter than white. We all know what Mandela did in South Africa (standing down at a time when he was very popular and famous). Hanging on longer than necessary in most cases end up marring whatever good one may have done. Being unbeatable in elections should not be a justifiable reason to stay on; we should practice what we preach. People are becoming disillusioned with politicians because often than not they say one thing and then act as if it only applies to the masses – George Orwell’s Animal Farm Syndrome. As much as people may attack the party leader, every neutral Cameroonian would agree that Fru Ndi has done his bit. The danger is that he may end up as the legendary King Ozymandias of Egypt - http://www.cs.rice.edu/~ssiyer/minstrels/poems/22.html. We should not be too passionate and fail to see that whatever change we demand of the ruling CPDM government, we can also ask same from all the main political parties that aspire to advance democracy in our country.
NB: This comment was posted under the article about giving more powers to the chairman of the SDF party.

Fritzane Kiki H.K


It is crystal clear that a party with presidencial aspirations should learn how to conserve its die-hearted supporters.We will not deny the fact that those who are sacked or were sacked are genuine intellectuals who have been at the fore-front to boost the party.And from observations the whatso called NEC never judged Asonganyi because of his 'crime',it was because of sentiments amongst the members and their strife for power.

This said, SDF with a national prowess of coming 2nd always in the elections,should have policies that will favour all members and others that vote for them.Fru Ndi is not the owner of SDF, but the chairman and if he is not capapble of leading the party to the presidency, then another one, competent enough within the party ranks, should replace him.Fru got enemies from within the party and in the CPDM, a proof of his unpopularity in the leading of the party to its goal.

You cannot be planning to rule SDF like a dictator, then you expect the common man(those who vote for you) to support you.We don't want to say that Asonganyi is from the S.W.P but we say his dismissal is and a host of others will bring much disorder than imagine.Fru should learn how to keep his long term members like Muna and Asonganyi.Mandela stuggled for many years and imprisoned for 10.000days 'Yes', but not with this kind of acaic policies of Fru.He claims to have been the opposition leader to the French and still go behind taking tips from them.If he says he doesn't like them why is he giving his home for rent to the French Tierce company?

This is hypocritical...!He should step down for young breeds to take over...damn!

It was certain this is what Fru Ndi wanted.
If he is guilty of count two, "all criticism, even constructive, is considered a crime against the chief", why did those bamilikes wait for Fru Ndi to leave before making their complains?

knganjo

One wonders if the only way of discipling the former SG was through dismissal.This weapon by the sdf needs to be reviewed.There is no organisation in the world without problems.Is the sdf saying that if your brother or your child does something wrong he/she should be thrown out of the house? This in my humble opinion is wrong.Petty disputes in the sdf should be a uniting and not a divisive factor.The Chairman needs to rethink this method of discipline.Just like there is no party without discipline,we can also say that there is no party without militants.The leadership of the sdf must understand that democracy means the acceptance of differing opinions.To disagree with the chairman does not mean you are an enemy of the sdf.That to me is democracy.Are they saying that in the sdf there is no room for reconciliation? Does discipline in the sdf only means exclusion? The sdf should practice politics of inclusion and not the politics of exclusion.What are they preaching and practicing? Virtue or vice.Godforbid.

kennedyejacha

Please I seem not to understand your narrow mindedness in all this brouhaha about Fru Ndi doing this or that. You talk about Mandela. Do you know a bit of the story of Mandela's ANC. Do you know the number of exclusion that the ANC faced in disciplinary matters when they had to include their arm struggle. Friends this is a historic fact. During the struggling years of the ANC at times for opposing the leadership you were not only dismissed but you were executed. You know the court case that almost rocked Winnie Mandela's political career? See you should not be passionate about this things. Asongayi helped spread false informatiom. For a revelutionary moevment that the SDF is suppose to be he merrited worser than that dismissal. Too much democracy has watered down our efforts for change in Cameroon. When Asongayi was suspended on the 8th of october they gave him the chance to appear before a disciplinary committee to defend himself. When it was decided that the committee meeting shall hold at its usual venue ie the Chairman's residence Asongayi came up with an objection that was plausable and for the sake of equity the NEC postponed the hearings to two weeks and changed the venue as requested by Asongayi. It was now decided that the hearings shall hold at a neutral ground owned by the clergy. Let us be serious. You better ask Asongayi what his problems are with the SDF. In a press conference not only did he accuse Fur Ndi but he went as far as insulting the entire leadership of the party. He made an accusation against the SDF. What we want from him are the facts. You who say that Fru Ndi is the cause can you please give the facts so that I may as well see with you. Under chairman Fru Ndi the SDF stand out as the most democratic entity in Cameroon.

Man Beti

Shame on SDF and their followers. A small librarian of Ntarikon named Fru Ndi is building an empire and you are serving him like slaves. No one can dissent. If you do, he gets rid of you like slave owners used to do to stubborn slaves. SDF is now a sect led by a guru named Fru Ndi. He takes bribe from Biya, everyone is scared to question him. HE IS NOT EVEN IN POWER AND IS HOSTILE TO CRITICISM....IN POWER, THIS LIBRARIAN WILL BE MORE DANGEROUS THAN ABACHA, BOKASSA, DOE AND IDI AMIN PUT TOGETHER.

It seems those doing politics now in Cameroon are those who see an opportunity to amass wealth for themselves at the detriment of the masses.Mostly those with poor and unfortunate status take politics as a means to make themselves richer and richer.The poor Librarian of Fru Ndi don't want to resign from power, until he has taken enough from parliamentatians and mayors.


Those who say Fru Ndi should not be criticised and checked are very wrong.He is not a demi-god in SDF!We are here to check those vices of those who are making Cameroon what it is today.If there is no change at the level of the parties, there will be none at the level of the government and the masses who are in a deteriorating living conditions and getting poorer and poorer everyday.

Look at Fru wanting to take all the powers in SDF to his hands and also negotiating on how to amend the constitution for his own personal benefit.What changes will he bring if he stays in power for life.In 15 years he did nothing than preaching thesame sermon like his brother Paul B.We are sick and tired of being sick and tired of those false promises.

SDF is the only opposition party that have the population support and so Fru should not have the Gods to dismiss and admit like in a "quacha" house in Ntarikom.Dismissing will not help.He is too dictatorial to his members who are his pillar and support.

N:B; Fru try and bring back those you have been dismissing before it's too late for you.

"When I recalled in 1992 when Kontchou Komeni announced election results beforehand and we wanted to react on the spot, this idiotic chairman was the first person to call us to calm saying Kontchou had no right to announce election results. You may think he was being in favour of peace - no, money had changed hands" (Ateba).

Ateba,
Do you have any proof for this statement of yours?

"Lunatics will take you serious Ni John, idiots like yourself will take you serious, you have outlived your usefulness and are of no value to Cameroonians" (Ateba).

Ateba,
Comment without insulting. As far as I know if given the position of chairman of SDF, you will not be fit to handle circumstances like what is happening in the SDF now, let alone take the party to where you want it to go in the time you want Fru Ndi to. A least Fru Ndi has tried. WHO is the idiot here?

"SDF, a party for a bunch of fools headed by an all-time idiot who cares only for what enters in his pockets".

Ateba,
This statement means that PROFESSOR Asonganyi whom you support so much was also part of the bunch, right?
Who really is the fool and idiot here?

"why did those bamilikes wait for Fru Ndi to leave before making their complains?" (Jean)

Answer:
Because they are like Asonganyi.

Che Sunday (Dr.)

Njoya, my brother,
Never start a political argument on the premise that what has happened in other situations is the noirm and should apply in our own situation. People die in the democratic process not because its a standard practice to die, but because they come up against obstinate individuals like the Fru Ndis who would rather be brutes than yeild to reason.
I have seethe changing of the guards in most western countries without blood shed. The likes of Che Ghandi who paid the supreme price for the SDF, did so believing they were supporting a party that will adhere to democratic ideals to govern itself, and hopefully govern the nation as well. They will be turning in their graves today if told of the direction the party has taken.

Ashu Loveline

Che Ghandi died because of his personal problems with Achi Achu. Of course 6 Cameroonians and many others have died because of the SDF. I maintain my position that the party has to weed out traitors like Prof Asonganyi and all the useless intellectuals from the party. Intellectuals like yourself think that party politics is writing Thesis. You guys are proud for nothing. Ahidjo never went to Sorborne, yet he was a better leader than your useless Biya. Fru Ndi remains a man of the people. He's been to all villages in Cameroon. He might have his weaknesses in the sense that guys like Hon Mbah Ndam/Yoyo Emmanuel from Ngokentungia are there to derail him.
He remains a true grass root leader for our Country.

ben

We need Prof Assonganyi in the CPDM. He has spent all these years serving our country in CUSS. It is just normal that he continue this good work, may be in the ministry of health. Wasn't it once said that a good player never lacks a team?

Che Sunday (Dr.)

He has been to every village in the country...he reamans a true leader..."
Where exactly is he leading everyone to? Nowhere precisely. And when you have followed him to all his sojourning, you will come home to find out that you actually went no where. Academics have nothing to do with leadership. Hopefully, it helps you charter a meaningful course action to pursue. Just because Biya happens to be a flop is not indicative that all educated individuals make poor leaders.
Fru Dni was savvy enough to target a market sector, (bookselling) to excel in. One would have thought that he will transfer that know-how to manage his political ambitions with. Unfortunately, competition to him means antagonism.And when he makes a mistake and some one points it out to him, with the help of blind support he gets from diehard supporters, he keeps shooting himself in the foot. If you think the complaints coming from the SW and W provinces are just empty noises coming from no good academics, then wait and revisit this topic when Biya is set to go and the Fru Ndi puts on his presidential aspiration and go canvasing villages in quest for votes. Lets see how well he will fare then. In politics, you form alliances, seeking middle road points of consensus, and compromises. Its not always a winner take all approach. I am not an apologist for us worthless academics. I believe my education has given me a chance to evaluate situations critically and hopefully offer an unbiased perspective. I refuse to be led by the nose in any euphoric endeavour be it politics or otherwise. So Ashu, I am not as worthless as you may think.I offer views which I think can help Cameroon be a better place for both you and I. Its not an attempt to demisish anyone's achievements, nor elevate myself above anyone. Lets keep the discusion civil.

Dr Che Sunday,
Which complaints are going to come from the south and northwest that Fru Ndi has`nt heard of before.Some Cameroonians have been reading through most of the comments on this forum and one can easily come away with the idea that you Dr Che Sunday with about 3 other commentators on this forum have done nothing ,but entertained yourselves with filthy Fru Ndi bashing.It is only today that we have learnt your raison d`etre for doing so.You should know that the passing on of Che Ghandi ,a supposed kin of yours during the difficult days multipartism was introduced is not an isolated case .Fru Ndi`s wife stood for hours cooking food for delegates ,fainted and gave up the soul.I see you expect Fru Ndi ,a bookseller to bring his expertise in bookselling to bear on political issues,one would expect you an academic to bring your academic credentials to bear on the way you analyse issues.You are outrightly biased.Not only did you say there`s no proof of what Asonganyi said publicly about the SDF,you`ve made it very subjective,that when Fru Ndi is wrong he doesn`t want to be told the truth.As an intellectual one would have loved to see you criticise Asonganyi and Fru Ndi turn in turn ,and come out with a synthesis at the end.See Dr Che,the literacy rate in Cameroon stands at 75% and nobody is unfaced with all those little titles of Profs,Dr and so on.I know you would want to shout your lungs out ,but take a look at most of your articles and see how some of us intellectuals can reduce ourselves to petitmen.If you want to feed fat the ancient grudge you bear Fru Ndi on this forum,then be ready to defend yourself.The senseless drivelling you are used to is not going to frighten some of the other DRs you don`t know.

Navigae Dungta

What is all the Hype about SDF and Fru Ndi about? Before you get so emotional, try to think and reflect properly; ask yourself a few questions, then a least give us your colleagues and your fellow audience at least your way forward. Solutions, solutions, Solutions; it is so easy to criticise but please make it constructive.

We have 100+ political parties in Cameroon; some made of husband and wife, some husband, wife and children. Some is a group of friends etc.

I do not agree with much of Fru Ndi and SDF approach and will immediately support any viable alternative;but there is none!! For now I will say congrates to them for being the biggest and stongest opposition party in Cameroon for all theses years despite the heavy handed government maneuver and interference.
Where are the rest of the opposition parties?I mean those experts in criticism? You will sse them one month before elections.
I came to the conclusion that, SDF may be far from what we want but the few people in Cameroon who are not 'deep throats' find a lot of comfort in the SDF.


How can we dare compare CPDM with the SDF? who knows what even happens within the CPDM? the party chair intimidates the hell out of all members. Will Cameroon Tribune carry a story on disagreements in the CPDM with the chair? I think the democratic values of the SDF are far from ideal but the best that we have in the country now.

If you disagree with me, try the other 100+ parties in Cameroon. If you think SDF is a regional party, try some of the family ones.

These debates are however good and I wish the SDF will listen to SOME.

Che Sunday (Dr.)

Watesih,
Point of correction. I did not say complaints were coming from the South and Northwest. I said Southwest(SW) and Western (W) provinces. That said, lets get to your post. If Cameroon is 75%literate then you must be running out of luck since there is just a 25% left which both you and Fru Ndi can continue to try to mislead. The 75% educated is not being trained to stand at attention and answer "yes sir" to anybody just for the sake of it. Its a population of free thinkers, which is schooled at asking questions and expecting answers. Not the bullying that is the modus operandi of the SDF. My raison d'etre is not, and has never been to bash Fru Ndi. Its more of a lament for someone with so much potential who ran a race and gave up at the end just to be perfectly satisfied coming in second. Why do you think his wife was so committed to his cause? You think she would have been happy seeing her husband bumbling around the way he is doing now? It was not only his wife who showed her mettle in defending the party. Women from the North west rallied around him in time of distress to protect him from Biya's goons at the height of political tensions in the country. In Kenya, the opposition parties took more than four years to plan and put in place, a coalition to oust Moi. It succeeded. In cameroon we wanted to do in the week prior elections. The SDF enjoys the role of being the largest opposition party in the country. Did it take the lead to draw up its own guidelines soon after losing the first elections to present it to the other parties and say, this is what we stand to offer you if you care to form a coalition with us?
No! It waited to have an all inclussive jamboree that never materialized. If fru Ndi was such a great leader, how come he wasn't taking the lead in forming the coalition, instead he was complaining of the coalition not following agreed upon procedures. The SDF did not need to have all the opposition parties in its corner. All what it needed was a few more parties with good following.
"Bashing" is too strong a word to classify my attitude towards the chairman and his party.
Recall that the feud between Ahidjo and Paul Biya was not because of a failed coup. It started because after Ahidjo resigned, he continue to hold unto the chairmanship of the CNU. Biya questioned and pointed out that when Ahidjo was president, he was the chairman of the CNU. Now that he Biya was president, it was his time to also hold onto the chairmanship of the party. Ahidjo took offense to that and thought it was an afront to his person. The same thing happend within the SDF. After Fru Ndi ran unsuccessfully for the presidency, Muna wanted to know if the Chairman of the party was always going to be the party's presidential candidate? He wanted the party to draw up bylaws that will clarify the matter. He was subsiquently removed from the party. Who is right here, Fru Ndi or Muna? If you live near a library, please go search the Washington Post's index going back to the year Muna was expelled from the party. You will find a lengthy article questioning the ability of the SDF to run a democratic nation, with a very diversed population when it could not resolve its internal problems. If I had the time, I would have done the home work for you. This litany of expulsions has characterized the management of the party since then. I have no personal axe(s) to grind with the the chairman, nor are my an Asongayi larky. The chairman was brave enough by forming a political to challenge the status quo. I give him that much credit. Its just his direction on national concerns I am worried of. I don't hate him. Period.

Che Sunday (Dr.)

Navigae,
No one could have said it better. If only the SDF could listen to some of the criticsms. Its not the ideal thing, it could get better. Lets not measure our aspirations to a failed system such as the CPDM and the fake opposition parties that are awash in the country. Lets look to the success stories all across Africa, Kenya, Ghana, and to a lesser extent, Nigeria. Look at Benin, a much smaller country that could have incumbents beaten by opposing parties. Our political system is rotten to the core. This gives no reason to try and become near do wells. Fight a clean fight even if you don't win, you would have left behind an honorable legacy.

Dr Che
Continue paying lip service on this forum .It is here that you want to try your hand at arm-chair politiking.Criticisms that can come from the West province would not be different from the ones that can come from the Northwest.The problem is your desire to project what you think will be disadvantageous to Fru Ndi when Biya subsequently leaves power.I and Fru Ndi have been misleading only 25% of Cameroonians ,yet you are having sleepless nights trying to analyse what we are up to.Why would you not talk about people who are able to mislead 75%.You are a butterfly who thinks himself a bird.How many questions have you asked and answered about Asonganyi on this forum? We did not say his wife was the only woman who did something for the SDF,but this was to show you that Fru Ndi himself was touched ,not only you who lost Che Ghandi ,and is doing everything to hang it on Fru Ndi`s neck.
I told you you were going to shout your lungs out,thats just what you are doing.Your writeups about Fru Ndi are not short of anything bashing.What are you lamenting about? When NEC says Asonganyi illicitly accepted funds ,where did you post your lament? Fru Ndi has been with his wife for a long time and they have worked hand in glove for the wellbeing of the SDF,i don`t know how few months after her demise you would have expected her to be a role model for MR Ndi.You just throw words around.When and how did Fru Ndi run an election and given up only to be contented with second place.All Cameroonians are fully aware that the 2nd place in reality is the 1st in any fair elections in Cameroon.What do you want to tell Cameroonians about Muna that they don`t know.Is this not the same person who at that time was waiting in Y`de to be appointed Justice Minister? You want to delve into things that are above your head: coalitions,alliances.So Muna wanted to emulate what Biya had done to Ahidjo? Was he out to propose bylaws to ameliorate the situation or did he want to become chairman? Today how comes he is dying for it? Whom do you take me for? I should go to the Library to read about Muna! Keep on contradicting yourself:you give Fru Ndi credit ,after having said that if he were such a great leader how come he did not enter into alliances with others.I think you are the one who is such a great leader.From all indications you are Meta and a mouth piece for Muna and his friends.You say you don`t hate Fru Ndi,even if you do,that is completely insignificant.Readers have already been made to see your bias attitude for particular opinion leaders ,so common!

Mr Watesih,
Does it really matter if Dr Che Sunday is Meta?
We are all looking into the quality of the arguments and proposals. Do we also need to know all the doctors on this forum.
How you use you doctorate or whatever titles you have is up to you. Donot always believe that they are the best.
While Fru Ndi has proven to be very popular for a couple of years now, it doesnot mean he is always right and people have no right to question his motives. While it is important to maintain discipline in the SDF, it is also crucial for the party to accomondate different opinions on many issues. Fru Ndi can have a good appeal to the masses but donot under estimate the need for experts and academics when it comes to policy issues.
The only reason all those who have been dismissed from the party and declared persona non grata are stiill alive today is because the SDF and Fru Ndi donot yet have the power to do so....... eliminate opponents.
The only thing separating the SDF from the CPDM as of now, in terms of dictatorial tendencies is that the SDF lacks the power and tools that the CPDM has got to intimidate, silence, incarcerate and even kill those with different views. Until that time, the best the SDF can do is to keep dismissing.
I am sure NEC will have to convene again before the year's end to dismiss again because while the Bamilekes didnot speak openly this time around, soon one of them will.
The fate of Cameroon lies in our hands.
Either we stage a complete revulotion to purge the country from this mess or rely on ethnocentric, egocentric and dictatorial leaders, be them in the ruling party or in the opposition to continue to deceive us.
Whether you accept it or not, the SDF is fast losing popularity, especially with the poor who have always been there for the SDF.
For the sauveteurs, market women, farmers, youths, etc, life is becoming more and more unbearable while the SDF bigwigs like their CPDM counterparts are getting richer and securing a better future for their children.
Like their CPDM friends, all their children are flown to Europe and America, while we stay behind to be manipulated and exploited for their personal benefits. Like the CPDM parliamentarians, SDF ones have nothing to show from the parliamentary grants they receive for their constituencies.
These people donot have us at heart. They have failed us. We need a rebellion.
I know there are many of you out there who are dying for it. The question is ....,and when.
The doors of dialogue and reason have all been shot. Where do we go from here?

Vally

Fru Ndi walk out during voting. what was he doing there? Is he not part of the defending team?and why Nec when they are accused of failure.
The Sdf should practice what they want Biya doing.

It's very contradictory that,an opposition party with plans of becoming a ruling party, cannot manage petty issues amongst its members.To be on the opposing side means you have to uphold to your policies and bylaws to favor the entire party,and these laws should not favor only the chairman,who can dismiss,sacked and punish without appeal!

Those who say others should go and look for another party,are just sick in the head.I repeat SDF is not and will never be a regional party.I see most of those from a particular part of Cameroon claiming to own the SDF, to the extend when one says.. "there is no right to question Fru Ndi's motives".Damn!Who is Fru not to be criticised.If you from that part of the country see Him as your Almighty God,then that is your problem.He has to serve those who vote for him.The party is not his property!!

We should not be blind to what is going on wrong in the party.Because Fru's wife died in the kitchen while cooking for delegates Fru should have all the powers confered to Him? What for?!!There is no room for pitying anyone who doesn't want to pity others.If you have made your mind to free the people, you must do it with a free and fair rule.If the CPDM is a corrupt party this is no guarantee or chance for SDF to follow suit.That's why we are out for change.

Fru's powers are more than a normal chairman of a party.He wants to add more to his glory by changing the constitution but I think we the(SDF) militants will like to see a leader with a pro-democratic rule and policies to suit the government to-be.

Ndiks

This local colonial party's woes has much confusion and individual dissenting targeting in stores.God help open the eyes of those who still trow in this sdf, the party subtly working for colonial LRC.It is good to open ye eyes.The sdf cabinet knows what their motives are,after 92 hijacked Victory for Mr Ndi?This sdf club is yet to put pressure to the colonial LRC to arrest and punished the gun toting troops that killed two unarmed students in Buea.Haba opposition party!SDF is in collusion with LRC's Annexation of Ambazonia,and also helping in the rule of lawlessnes.See with ye eyes ladies and gentlemen.See you later.

Fritzane kiki,
If it doesn't please you what you should do is that you quit. We formed our thing and six of our bright children died and you want that we allow it to you. See I want you to understand that the time has come for us to tell you that enough is enough. If you care you can go and create your own. At least we have the credit that we created some thing that even people of your region talk about. You what have you created? Nothing. I don't know from what region you come from. But I want to tell you that people from my region are trailblazers. That is why we only could be capable of launching something that went veritably national. We give a damn to you. If you care don't vote again for us. We have enough votes from our region to give us a comfortable position at the National assembly. We are the best or the least better than you. You can't challenge us in anyway. We have made you our tenants in your land. That is probably what makes you jealous of us. Watch out if you continue in your headiness we shall even buy from you your ancestors graveyard and exsume out their lazy bones and throw in the ocean. Then we shall make you homeless people. We have the financial capabilities to do it. So stop insulting your masters or else you pay the price.

T-boy

SDF ma foot.

There is no serious opposition leader or party in Cameroon. The opposition parties are all birds of the same feather with CPDM. The actions and reactions of these opposition leaders are in no war different from Biya and CPDM. Thank God by their fruits we shall know them, "2-side-cutlas them all".
To hell with this SDF nonsense.
The right opposition party in Cameroon is to be conceived by the chosen parents.

Che Sunday (Dr.)

Watesih,
Where I come from or my academic status are not on trial and are not germain to this argument. I am not Meta, and even if I were, that will not be reason for me to simply support Muna just because we come from the same clan. I have been equally harsh on the late Dr. Foncha, if you have followed some of my writings on this forum. I expect my leaders to be visionaries, not people whom after committing a plethora of mistakes will sit back and say, "did my best." That best was not good enough, and was found wanting primarily because he did not listen to the constituency he was representing. Ni Fru Ndi has had the support of people across the Cameroon landscape and beyound. Asking people to form their own parties is very much akin to a response he gave when questioned as whether SDF parliamentarians could account for the stipends granted them to carry out micro-development projects in their constituencies. He said, " people now want to know about funds given to parliamentarians for development. If the SDF has not come to power, would any one had known of the existence of such fund?" Mr. Watesih, what is wrong with this statement? Please, lets keep the name calling aside and you tell me, if you were the public relations officer for Fru Ndi, would you go on the air and provided that response? Well, maybe you would to keep your job or even your membership in the party. A seasoned politcian would have said, "give us a chance to look into this and will make the facts available to you in due course." The answer he gave simply means, the system is corrupt, give us a chance to have our share of the spoils.
To Chi Elvis,
Money is not a common denominator to every- thing.Just because the system is corrupt does not mean everyone is willing to sell their birth rights. See what happened to the fon of Babanki whose gruesome end was published on this forum. Democracy is a game of numbers, not an exercise in arm twisting. You must be willing to market you ideas in order to get people buy into them.Bullying gets you nowhere in this game. Be polite to all members of the forum. We may disagree idealogically, but not enemies. Let leave that to the CPDM.

Watesih

Hey Mac satan!
Its not my intention to disagree with you on every aspect of your write up,but i must say accomodating differing views and tearing down the party it has taken so much to build is unacceptable.There`s a popular dictum in English which goes thus," Tell me your name and i will tell you who you are".This has to do with how Space determines and brings out our character traits and view of the world.We can even break this down to the name you use on this forum," Mac Satan" .By adopting a pseudonym like this, one is given the impression that this is somebody who can be very conservative.It is therefore no doubt that you think if the SDF is given the weapons ,it will start killing political opponents.Talking about people killing others brings out the primitive desire to kill in you.
As long as people keep manipulating perceptions and want to pass for angles to the detriment of the SDF,NEC will convene as often as possible.In the SDF`s quest for power,the party now and then is going to get distracted by hand-wringers and naysayers,but it must pursue its set goals resolutely.
No major political party in the world ,especially one that is still in the opposition will stand tall when its very foundation is being disintergrated by moral prostitution.It`s a pity it has only dawned on you now that there`s corruption in the SDF. A palpable example has to do with the illicit funds Asonganyi received and which NEC highlighted last week.I know you are too scared to take up this idea because you will not come to terms with yourself.I also know you will not want Asonganyi to be seen as a man of terrible vices ,but impressive vanities.I repeat Fru Ndi has been shot at,calomnied,pilloried,held hostage,but he has refused to spill the blood of Cameroonians.Biya is going to come to an end just as Pieter Botha did.

Hi Dr Che
At times the idea of forming parties is always put into Fru Ndi`s mouth by this people who are eternally mobile.Foupoussi Evariste threatened and left to form one,but he came back.Politicians at times get very blunt in order to survive.These parliamentarians are voted by the people,and it is really ridiculous and even practically impossible to think that Fru Ndi will carry a wip and go after each of this people who always promise heaven to the masses.I think as a political scientist who is out to analyse Fru Ndi`s speeches ,you should also do same with Biya`s ,especially,"Quand Y`de respire...",
" Me voici donc `a ..." and " Il faut que cela cesse!". Don`t also forget you have not said any single thing about the allegations NEC made last week ,about Asonganyi`s alleged reception of illicit funds.

Che Sunday (Dr.)

Watesih,
It would be unthinkable of me to expect the chairman to go around monitoring his parliamentarians on how they use government funds in their repective constituenceies. All I pointed out was the unprofessional nature of his response to the question. If the party had put in place a checks and balance unit, then more compliments to it. But I was not calling for such a thing. I simply tried to point to the unacceptable nature of the response. It is the duty of Cameroonians to approach their elected representatives and demand to have some accountability from them.
I have not bothered to criticize the likes of Asongayi and the Muna because they are not the movers of the party. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. The chairman is at the head of the party. He has demonstrated a propensity for seeking the presidency. It is him who is seated in the eye of the horicane and must receive public scrutiny because if the Gods of Cameroon politics were to smile on him, he would be the one at Etundi, not the Asongayi's and co.
In the case of Biya, we all know what his resume entails. Whats the point wasting precious time trying to change him.
If the NEC has proven that Asongayi has received illicit funds, I believe he should be put on trial, asked for a jail term or make him return such funds to the party and have them used for some charitable purpose. He rose within the party's hierachy to almost next in command. He knows too much of the party's internal workings to be let go. He is a political liability outside the party. Keep him, monitor him, but make sure his position is further down the party's pecking order.

Watesih

Dr Che,
Hey bro,I was just thinking of ending somewhere ,so it wouldn`t seem as if Che and Watesih are monopolising the space here,when your last contribution made me to shout in disbelief.In fact you got it completely wrong now!You have not bothered to criticise Asonganyi and Muna? Too simplistic! You have only bothered to praise Muna for trying to introduce by- Laws, and you even went further to ask us to go to the library for more research about it.If you are blind to all other crimes committed by all other party memebers and only have selective memory for Fru Ndi`s ,is that not why we term it bashing? It seems to you the chairman`s quest for Etoudi is for personal aggrandissement and not for the people,so people should inflict all types of pain on him because he is in the eye of a huricane.There`s a better way to look at things!I see why up to now you still considered Asonganyi and co.as infallible.Do you know what is meant by the executive body of a party?What on earth do you understand by mover? The secretary General of the SDF is not a mover? Do you know how many times the name Asonganyi has fallen from people`s lip or been written in the columns of newspapers? Muna has always demonstrated the suppressed desire to be chairman,minister and president,yet has never got scrutiny from people like you.If you knew the SDf well,then you would not be doubting about checks and balances ,yet you see people being sanctioned everyday.You have the impression that the crown in the SDF should be made even more uneasy to wear by forcing it tight on the head of one individual,so why all the fuss about dictatorship.

gerald

Some of the arguments put forward in this forum are actually ludicrous; but however ludicrous they maybe, it would be wrong to start attacking individuals rather than countering the arguments put forward. To say to every critic of the sdf to go form their own party is in a way childish. If every dissenting voice were to leave the party and create theirs then I wonder just how many militants the party would be left with. Most of those critical of the chairman have always acknowledged the fact that he has done his bit for the party. However, most think it is about time he stepped aside for someone else to try and move the party forward. To have the idea that anyone critical of the sdf is a blackleg is far off the mark, people do because of their passion to see the party move forward. When we start nursing these tendencies of defending even the wrong things our leaders do, we risk nurturing dictators. In real democracies, not everyone toes the party line; this does not however result in people being thrown out. How many times have we often heard of Republicans in the US opposing a bill, of labour members of parliament in the UK voting against a bill tabled by their own party? Is doing so an indication that they oppose the party? Does standing up in the House of Commons and deriding Tony Blair over a particular policy make the labour backbencher a traitor? Mature parties often accommodate dissenting views. To say that sdf is someone’s party and that anyone who does not agree with the chairman and/or a party line should leave the party is political suicide. Without the masses’ support, sdf would have gone nowhere. It was due to the pressure from the masses that multy-partism was realised.

samuel

is the SDF Fru Ndi's property? that party belongs to cameroonians and to no one so telling people to go form their own party is really a develish act.was this party handed to him by his parents.this pârty was made to exist due to sacrifies made by cameroonians .some lost thier lifes others hands and property.this only goes to show us what Mr Ndi will do just ond only just he finds him self at etudi.God help us.

DEMOCRACY IN THE ABSENCE OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IS OF A CONFIRMED DICTATOR, WHILE POWER TO THE PEOPLE IN THE ABSENCE OF GOODNESS AND VIRTUE IS OF A DEVIL


I want to state right from the start that, with the current leadership of the SDF, militants should be expecting the birth of a CPDM-SDF Monster. Militants should be prepared to be offering praises and thanks to the devil. All the expulsions within the SDF is done with the sole intention of maintaining Paul Biya in power. Paul Biya is using Ni John Fru Ndi and other overzealous NEC members as a Buffer to all possible challengers to his candidature to the presidency of the republique.

In the following write up, I am not saying that Paul Biya is a LION. Neither am I saying that Ni John Fru Ndi is a DOG. Cameroonians also cannot be SHEEPS. I simply want to make a TRUE PICTURE of the actual relationship between Paul Biya, Ni John Fru, and Cameroonians. Bear with me for using this metaphor! However, my account on the process of victimization within the National Executive Council (NEC) of the SDF is even underestimated. Any one who brings up an idea contrary to what SDF chairman, Ni John Fru Ndi thinks, is considered a traitor and is kicked out of the party by NEC members, whose blind submission to the chairman and to the undemocratic SDF constitution has made them the most confused and unreasonable slaves south of the Sahara. Today, and believe me, any SDF member who looks up to the current leadership of the SDF for our salvation deserves to be laughed at. Before, Ni John Fru Ndi was aiming at the presidency of the republic, but today, he is aiming ONLY to remain the chairman of SDF for life. Not only that. Pa Jean is actually helping Cameroon’s number one enemy – Paul Biya- by blocking all able challengers to Paul Biya’s candidature.

The whole disgraceful issue surrounding the NEC and the SDF is not something to be attributed to a particular province. Oh no! In this mess, we have selfish people from other provinces who are conspiring to use SDF supporters and the party as a means to enrich themselves. True, it is important to realize that most of these destructive elements are from the North West province and the Western province. But what have those NEC members from the other provinces done? Why can they not speak out and be identified, even if it means signing their expulsion out of NEC? Ben Muna, Jua, Akonteh, Nyamseri, and others from the North West province have also voiced their disappointment with the leadership of the SDF. Ni John Fru Ndi and his gang of opportunists and exploiters should understand that people come and go but the SDF remains. They should understand that they are going to stand judgment one day, be they alive or dead.

Cameroonians are mere SHEEPS of various species and Biya The LION is the predator of sheeps. Paul Biya The LION has been eating up Cameroonians The SHEEPS day after day. So Ni John FRU The DOG was selected to watch over Cameroonians The SHEEPS and to bark whenever Biya The LION comes looking for Cameroonians The SHEEPS. Those who selected Ni John Fru Ndi The DOG fully understood that he (Fru Ndi) could do nothing to Biya The LION, but that when he (Ndi), at least barks, Cameroonians The Sheep will be awake and Biya the LION will run away.

At the beginning, whenever Biya the LION came, Ni John Fru Ndi The DOG would bark and bark to awake Cameroonians The SHEEPS. Soon, Biya The LION started approaching Ni John Fru The DOG with pieces of SOYA (roasted meat). Ni John The DOG refused Biya the LION'S bribe (SOYA) because he fully understood the consequences of he accepting. However, whenever Biya The Lion came with the SOYA in his mouth, Ni John Fru The DOG started producing and swallowing saliva. Unfortunately the saliva started reducing Ni John Fru The DOG's voice. Ni John Fru Ndi The DOG started barking with a low voice because his mouth was full with saliva.

Many times, Biya The LION would come around, with its tail winding from left to right as an invitation to love making. In the night, especially when Cameroonians The SHEEPS were sleeping, Biya The LION would come over, with the SOYA in his mouth and his tail inviting Ni John Fru The DOG for lovemaking. One unfortunate day, Biya The LION came when Ni John Fru The DOG was sleeping. He was thirsty and hungry. As Ni John Fru The DOG got up, Biya The LION was actually sitting in between the legs of Ni John Fru The DOG and his piece of SOYA just a few centimeters from Ni John Fru The DOG's mouth. The volume of saliva in Ni John Fru Ndi’s mouth increased and Biya The Lion The Lion could hear him actually swallowing it. Ni John Fru Ndi’s hands started moving down south and their pants started dropping down! And as this was taking place Ni John Fru The DOG pretended as if nothing was taking place. Biya The Lion went many rounds, with Ni John Fru Ndi pretending as if nothing was happening. His eyes were still closed as he went through the lovemaking exercise, but his waist kept moving from left to right, while his premolars and molars crushed the SOYA he was eating. Innocent Cameroonians The SHEEPS were fast asleep, with all trust and confidence in Ni John Fru The DOG.

Guess what took place. As soon as Ni John Fru The DOG opened his eyes and saw the beauty of Biya The LION'S nakedness and got the rich odour from the SOYA, Ni John Fru The DOG immediately found his mouth on the SOYA and started making love with Biya The LION. That was the beginning of the sad relationship. Selfish as he is, Ni John Fru Ndi started climbing on sleeping Cameroonians in search of his accomplices. This is how people like Mr. YoYo, Mbah Ndam, and his many other slaves in SDF NEC, too, ate the Soya. And as this gang of exploiters eats, they open their eyes to intimidate others.

Since that day Ni John Fru The DOG ate the SOYA and made Love with Biya The LION, whenever Biya The LION came looking for Cameroonians The SHEEPS, Ni John Fru The DOG would NEVER bark. Instead, he would also be winding its tail from left to right to tell Biya The LION that he, too, was prepared for lovemaking. And they would make love and make love, with Ni John Fru Ndi’s mouth right inside Biya’s mouth, and while Cameroonians The SHEEPS sleep. Before leaving, and after losing energy in the love making exercise, Biya The LION would consume as many Cameroonians The SHEEPS as possible. As Biya prey on Cameroonians, Ni John would bark no more.

Ni John Fru The DOG and Biya The LION continued to make love and Biya The LION continues to give him SOYA on a daily basis, and especially just before important elections are held in Cameroon. This has given Biya The LION the green light to prey on Cameroonians at any time. And as Ni John Fru The DOG grows fatter and richer, Cameroonians The SHEEPS are dying every day.

Many Cameroonians tried to expose this unholy relationship between Paul Biya The LION and Ni John Fru Ndi The DOG, but Ni John Fru The DOG used all means to blackmail and victimize them. He uses his accomplices in the SDF NEC to apply a particular article in the SDF constitution to chase out those who are against his selfish and dictatorial behaviour. That is how he kicked out Asanga, Ben Muna and others. For fear of victimization from Ni John Fru Ndi, other NEC members who actually found him making love with Biya, left the SDF. Presently, Ni John Fru The DOG is pregnant, after diagnosis by a medical specialist by name Professor Asongagni. Ni Jonh Fru The DOG is carrying the baby of Paul Biya The LION. That child Ni John Fru The DOG is carrying will be born one day, unless reasonable Cameroonians ensure that the baby is aborted. Just imagine a baby from Ni John Fru Ndi and Biya! If Cameroonians allow Ni John Fru The DOG to give birth, then Cameroonians The SHEEPS will become extinct (disappear completely). It is possible, indeed very probable that the baby Ni John Fru The DOG is carrying is a monster.Instead of standing solidly behind Professor Asongagni to ensure that Ni John Fru Ndi does not deliver the MONSTER, others have conspired with Ni John Fru Ndi to kick Professor Asongagni, too, away from the mafia clique in the NEC.

Do not say we were not warned. This is not a fiction; it is the reality we are going through. We should be expecting the birth of a CPDM-SDF monster. When that happens, the SDF shall be lighting candles to the devil and worshiping Satan. I pray that the Almighty God save us from this congregation of manipulators who are merely using the common man to enrich themselves.

Let us look critically into this hostage taking by Ni John Fru Ndi and his NEC supporters, without looking into the province they come from. Let North Westerners stand up and condenm that which is wrong without struggling to defend their brother or to attack those from other provinces who dare criticize Ni John Fru Ndi and Co. Let SDF supporters from other provinces also criticize Ni John Fru Ndi and his gang of confusionists as individuals. Until the North Westerners confirm FINALLY that they do NOT see anything wrong with the leadership skills of Ni John Fru Ndi, we should not hold his province of origin responsible. True, he might be fighting to put his brothers into strategic positions to protect his selfish interests, but even there, he is selective.

But where is the “power to the people” that these exploiters used to preach? But where is the democracy that Ni John Fru Ndi preached when he encouraged six poor children to sacrifice their lives during the launching of the SDF in 1990?

The impossible is not Cameroonian ...

Dear Mukete,
I seem to believe that you reason through your ass. How can Fru Ndi block challengers to Biya? Why you mystify Fru Ndi that way? can bello bouba not challenge Biya. What blocks Muna from challenging Biya. Is there any stated rule that Biya's challenger must be from the SDF. Cameroonians want somebody who can oust Biya. Peroid. So excuse us with your metaphores. You instead are helping Biya by wanting cameroonians to believe that Fru Ndi is the problem and not the bad electoral system. So please close your ass and use your brain to reason.

It puzzles me when I read here that the NEC members are blindly supporting Fru Ndi. I don't want to believe that they are that dull or naive. Again I think most of them if not all were not poor or jobless before joining the SDF. Most of them will still leave their normal lives even without the SDF. In fact some of them are even contributing financially to see that the party functions well.
With the above in mind, I don't think the NEC members will eat Fru Ndi's shit because they want to stay in the party. I believe most of them if not all are there to see that the party survives. Even illiterates as some people will always address others can some times organize better than those who claim to be Harvard graduates.
Prof Asong-Asongyi has been dismissed because he made some great mistakes. (But I believe the SDF will not ignore the great contribution he made to the party). I don't think all the NEC members except two will vote against Prof Asong-Asonyi because they fear Fru Ndi. Fru Ndi will never dismiss any one for talking against him (Fru) because the other members have to vote. I don't agree with those who think the NEC members take actions depending on Fru Ndi's opinion. Someone said the NEC rejected a complaint tabled by Fru Ndi concerning the news or rumors that Prof Asong-Anyi was behind Fri Ndi wife's dead. What have we got to say about this? Did Fru dismiss somebody because they refused to take to his opinion?
We should be objective and stop being emotional or say negative things against the SDF or Fru Ndi because it has not brought the change we all badly need in our Country. The party has done a lot and we should instead try to contributing ideas on how we can change some of the things we think are not going well in the party. I know Fru Ndi is a problem to many of us. We have the opportunity to replace him in the next coming convention. The SDF is not like the CPDM where there is no election to get a new leader for the party. Let's wait and see the out come of the coming elections with Jua and Muna standing to challenge Ndi. Those who hate Ndior his leadership should stop talking and give their support to any of the other candidates so as to oust (him)Fru Ndi.
Cameroonians!!!!! Pleasssssss we should stop hating each other and try to stop this NW versus SW stuff. It doesn't pay. There are many S. Westerners married to N. Westerners and vice versa. Why hate your own brother/sister?

Shalom
God bless you all.

However, whenever Biya The Lion came with the SOYA in his mouth, Ni John Fru The DOG started producing and swallowing saliva. Unfortunately the saliva started reducing Ni John Fru The DOG's voice. Ni John Fru Ndi The DOG started barking with a low voice because his mouth was full with saliva.

Many times, Biya The LION would come around, with its tail winding from left to right as an invitation to love making. In the night, especially when Cameroonians The SHEEPS were sleeping, Biya The LION would come over, with the SOYA in his mouth and his tail inviting Ni John Fru The DOG for lovemaking. One unfortunate day, Biya The LION came when Ni John Fru The DOG was sleeping. He was thirsty and hungry. As Ni John Fru The DOG got up, Biya The LION was actually sitting in between the legs of Ni John Fru The DOG and his piece of SOYA just a few centimeters from Ni John Fru The DOG's mouth. The volume of saliva in Ni John Fru Ndi’s mouth increased and Biya The Lion The Lion could hear him actually swallowing it. Ni John Fru Ndi’s hands started moving down south and their pants started dropping down! And as this was taking place Ni John Fru The DOG pretended as if nothing was taking place. Biya The Lion went many rounds, with Ni John Fru Ndi pretending as if nothing was happening. His eyes were still closed as he went through the lovemaking exercise, but his waist kept moving from left to right, while his premolars and molars crushed the SOYA he was eating. Innocent Cameroonians The SHEEPS were fast asleep, with all trust and confidence in Ni John Fru The DOG.

Guess what took place. As soon as Ni John Fru The DOG opened his eyes and saw the beauty of Biya The LION'S nakedness and got the rich odour from the SOYA, Ni John Fru The DOG immediately found his mouth on the SOYA and started making love with Biya The LION. That was the beginning of the sad relationship. Selfish as he is, Ni John Fru Ndi started climbing on sleeping Cameroonians in search of his accomplices. This is how people like Mr. YoYo, Mbah Ndam, and his many other slaves in SDF NEC, too, ate the Soya. And as this gang of exploiters eats, they open their eyes to intimidate others.

Since that day Ni John Fru The DOG ate the SOYA and made Love with Biya The LION, whenever Biya The LION came looking for Cameroonians The SHEEPS, Ni John Fru The DOG would NEVER bark. Instead, he would also be winding its tail from left to right to tell Biya The LION that he, too, was prepared for lovemaking. And they would make love and make love, with Ni John Fru Ndi’s mouth right inside Biya’s mouth, and while Cameroonians The SHEEPS sleep. Before leaving, and after losing energy in the love making exercise, Biya The LION would consume as many Cameroonians The SHEEPS as possible. As Biya prey on Cameroonians, Ni John would bark no more.

Ni John Fru The DOG and Biya The LION continued to make love and Biya The LION continues to give him SOYA on a daily basis, and especially just before important elections are held in Cameroon. This has given Biya The LION the green light to prey on Cameroonians at any time. And as Ni John Fru The DOG grows fatter and richer, Cameroonians The SHEEPS are dying every day.

Many Cameroonians tried to expose this unholy relationship between Paul Biya The LION and Ni John Fru Ndi The DOG, but Ni John Fru The DOG used all means to blackmail and victimize them. He uses his accomplices in the SDF NEC to apply a particular article in the SDF constitution to chase out those who are against his selfish and dictatorial behaviour. That is how he kicked out Asanga, Ben Muna and others. For fear of victimization from Ni John Fru Ndi, other NEC members who actually found him making love with Biya, left the SDF. Presently, Ni John Fru The DOG is pregnant, after diagnosis by a medical specialist by name Professor Asongagni. Ni Jonh Fru The DOG is carrying the baby of Paul Biya The LION. That child Ni John Fru The DOG is carrying will be born one day, unless reasonable Cameroonians ensure that the baby is aborted. Just imagine a baby from Ni John Fru Ndi and Biya! If Cameroonians allow Ni John Fru The DOG to give birth, then Cameroonians The SHEEPS will become extinct (disappear completely). It is possible, indeed very probable that the baby Ni John Fru The DOG is carrying is a monster.Instead of standing solidly behind Professor Asongagni to ensure that Ni John Fru Ndi does not deliver the MONSTER, others have conspired with Ni John Fru Ndi to kick Professor Asongagni, too, away from the mafia clique in the NEC.

Do not say we were not warned. This is not a fiction; it is the reality we are going through. We should be expecting the birth of a CPDM-SDF monster. When that happens, the SDF shall be lighting candles to the devil and worshiping Satan. I pray that the Almighty God save us from this congregation of manipulators who are merely using the common man to enrich themselves.

Let us look critically into this hostage taking by Ni John Fru Ndi and his NEC supporters, without looking into the province they come from. Let North Westerners stand up and condenm that which is wrong without struggling to defend their brother or to attack those from other provinces who dare criticize Ni John Fru Ndi and Co. Let SDF supporters from other provinces also criticize Ni John Fru Ndi and his gang of confusionists as individuals. Until the North Westerners confirm FINALLY that they do NOT see anything wrong with the leadership skills of Ni John Fru Ndi, we should not hold his province of origin responsible. True, he might be fighting to put his brothers into strategic positions to protect his selfish interests, but even there, he is selective.

But where is the “power to the people” that these exploiters used to preach? But where is the democracy that Ni John Fru Ndi preached when he encouraged six poor children to sacrifice their lives during the launching of the SDF in 1990?

The impossible is not Cameroonian ...

Those who have taken this opportunity to through insults at Fru are making an error.Ansongayi´s dismissal is through a vote.I regret the fact that Prof.Asongayi has been dimised from that SDF.On the other hand he bilitled himself.He has not shown maturity in politics.In politics,if you are a senior member of a party,you only make public crititisms of that party when when are ready to resign from that party.If any one disagrees with this point,then quote where in the world a senior member of a party openly critized his or her party and continues to be a member of that party without immediately tabling a resignation letter.Only a useless politician will do such a thing.If Prof.Asongayi´s crititisms were within the SDF,one would have considered it constructive.But to do it over the air,it is destructive and I consider it shameful for him not to have table his resignation after the public crititisms.
Politics in Cameroon is now at a cross road.Cameroonians now simply react emotionaly to issues.Most comments on this issue are too biased.Where are we leading to? Let us all reflect!

Fon Teku

Biya's election was also through a vote, but does that mean it was legitimate? Table his resignation after public critisim? Which critism, the same one advanced by the executioners? Fon Teku, Colin Powell was critical to the republican party, so are many high officials of the democratic party. You see, a party most have many voices because it represent many different peoples. The only think that must be the ame is its mission. That is not the case here. People complain about unethical practices, they get fired. That is the case here. Fon Teku the only reason a seemingly smart and sensible man like you would post something like this is because you are graffi. SDF is doing the same thing the CPDM is doing. How you can't see that mean you have closed your eyes. The only way to close your eyes to this is because you consider the leaders of the party your country people. Sad to say, today the SDF is a graffi party. It will never come to power.

"Fru's powers are more than a normal chairman of a party.He wants to add more to his glory by changing the constitution but I think we the(SDF) militants will like to see a leader with a pro-democratic rule and policies to suit the government to-be."

You seem to reason like a child in all your postings. Can you propose one candidate to lead the sdf. You amongst alot can ONLY criticise because you are abroad with no proposals but the real politics is in cameroon.

you go further to talk about fru ndi's wife. wat a pathetic prat you are. a man's wife dies in active service and you take it for granted and use against him. You alike most cameroonians on this forum are very selfish and hypocrites. wat fru ndi has done in cameroon no one has achieved yet. he may only be a librarian but with much wisdom though. how about the ndam njoya, ekindi's garga and more. they're better huh.. it's only fru ndi. there's much hatin and contempt in this forum which doesn't help. no constructive criticisms put forward.

another stupid wanker " sharptalk" says he will never contribute a $1 to the sdf.do you it goes to fru ndi's pocket. when frundi comes to the usa what will you do. you keep throwing comments coz you're in the diaspora. you're such a pervert.

yes let fru ndi go back to ebibi.other leaders today have been on biya's pay roll but how many have served the people from their pockets, faced the risky tumoils fru ndi has faced for the cameroonians. he has served from his pocket, his hard labour with his wife of blessed memory but what people see is he is a dictator.

there's has been excellent democracy in disciplining asonganyi who didn't seem to know his role.

well done nec.

CAN SOMEONE NAME ONE..I MEAN ONE PERSON WHO CAN DO WHAT FRU NDI HAS DONE OR BETTER STILL CHALLENGE BIYA.

GUYS, INTELLECTUALS, DR SUNDAY USE YOUR BRAINS. WE NEED TO CHANGE CAMEROON NOT FRU NDI.

CRITICISE AND PROPOSE.. DON'T BE LUNATICS.A LOT OF PEOPLE CHAT RUBBISH.

OPEN LETTER TO PROFESSOR ASONGANYI,
FREE MEMBER, SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC FRONT

Through : Readers of The Post Online.


Dear Professor Asonganyi,

People come and go, but NEC and the SDF as institutions will remain. Even Ni John Fru Ndi will one day quit NEC and the SDF – whether naturally when the doors of life close behind him or otherwise. Peace be with you.

What is, perhaps, most important is that during your tenure as Secretary General of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) the majority of SDF members have the strong feeling that you are genuinely concerned about Cameroonians and the destiny of the party, and that you have a vested interest in seeing to it that our beloved country is taken away from those dictators who have conspired to pull the SDF and Cameroon into mess. Party militants have also the strong feeling that you are interested in seeing that all those on whom the success of the party depends act with determination, so that everyone should feel the results of our joint efforts and constructive ideas.

Within the SDF, more than 98% of militants get the strong feeling that you encourage concerted efforts in order to open up broad vistas for the party’s advancement. The whole Cameroonian nation has talked enough and you have done everything possible to put their collective reasoning into action. Under your leadership, more practical deeds were the slogan of the day. You have stood the test!

Unfortunately, despite all your good intentions to take the SDF out of the moral stagnation that Chairman Ni John Fru Ndi and his defeated National Executive Council (NEC) have selfishly pushed it into, we still continue to hear criticism levelled against you by the chairman himself and those whose blind submission to the chairman has made them hungry slaves. This destructive criticism, unfortunately, has attained alarming and dangerous proportions, with the chairman and his blind NEC defenders blowing it out to the entire nation, of course with the intention of presenting you as a misfit and a potential danger to the party. When anger, jealousy, selfishness, allergy to openness and criticism, open hatred, lust for money, power and property become the guiding principles of the Chairman of a party like the SDF, then reasonable SDF members start questioning why the chairman encouraged six poor and innocent Cameroonians to sacrifice their lives during the launching of the SDF in 1990. Why did the chairman encouraged very old Takebeng women into exposing their sacred nakedness, if within him he fully knew there was a secret agenda in his mind? Why should NEC and the chairman keep blackmailing and vomiting poison against people with good intentions? Why are they taking the SDF hostage?

For many years before you were elected to save the SDF from the hands of its dictators, many other SDF officials have also gone through similar victimization from the Chairman. The list is long! In the months leading to the elections of SDF National Bureau members, Ni John Fru Ndi always identify and blackmail all those he considers a threat to his position and interests. Today, he is dismissing the very founding fathers he had, for long, be praising and using to maintain grip at the head of the SDF. When Ni John Fru Ndi went into the air to shamelessly declare that he, Ni John Fru Ndi, personally created the SDF and that the so-called intellectuals simply came in with the notion of Founding Fathers, one begin to question why he allowed them intervene into his private party project? His utterances are simply confirming the mafia within the SDF. One of his enslaved NEC supporters even went as far as stating that Ni John Fru Ndi created the SDF in his bedroom. If his bedroom had such a potential and power for the creation of a political party, then why did Ni John Fru Ndi pushed innocent souls to die before his party could be launched? Why did Ni John Fru Ndi walked on dead bodies to position himself infront of his master, Paul Biya? Why did he need the services of other people who wrote, printed and transferred the SDF manifesto from Yaounde to Bamenda? Why did people like Akonteh and others shipped him out into hiding after he read the manifesto? How can Ni John Fru Ndi be exposing his inferiority complex by always trying to use his low level of education to buy support from the public? Why is he so scared of “intellectuals”? Who prevented him from attaining greater heights in education? Does Ni John Fru Ndi know that in today’s modern society, there are head of states still taking private courses? If he thinks Cameroon and the world do not need the services of intellectuals, then why does he send his children abroad to become intellectuals? Why did he not ask his children to be booksellers or to take over the Ebibi Bookshop he managed before becoming Chairman of the SDF? Why is he spending huge sums of money to educate his children abroad, and not even in Cameroon? Since 1990 when he started fighting to be President of this bilingual country, it is sad that he cannot pronounce a single word in French. If he cannot learn the simple way, then we all wonder what a teacher he will be as president. Thank God, the probability of having Ni John Fru Ndi as head of state of our country is ZERO. This he knows! We await another SDF member to aspire for this high office.

Naturally, at a time like this, especially with more than 98% of SDF members realizing that there is NO difference between Cameroon’s number one enemy (Paul Biya) and Ni John Fru Ndi of the SDF, everybody in one way or another turns his thoughts to the destiny of the SDF, the past, future and of course, the current problems that have been created by the weaknesses of Ni John Fru Ndi. We strongly believe that under your leadership moral stagnations in the SDF gave way to openness, lively debates, understanding, co-operation and the determination to make the party successful. Your only crime before the chairman and his selfish NEC members is that you set the grounds for openness within the SDF and that you put, firstly, the Nation at heart. You exposed his unholy relationship with the person he had presented as Cameroon's number enemy - Paul Biya. Unable to use these clear facts in nailing you onto the cross, they invented all odds to present you as a misfit, and even went as far as actually climbing on the death of his wife to throw pure shit on you. How can Ni John Fru Ndi be so mean to feel that his wife is more important to the whole SDF than the wife of a simple SDF militant in Bali for example?

As befits my tradition and culture, I want to thank you heartily for your excellent job as Secretary General of the SDF, and for standing up high to demonstrate to the nation that the path through which Ni John Fru Ndi and his supporters like Yoyo want to take the SDF would take the party into shame and total disaster. My humble upbringing – excuse me – urges me to give credits to those who deserve them. You stood the test, and despite all the unnecessary blackmail from the confused Ni John Fru Ndi’s camp, you passed the trials. It is very sad to finally discover that Ni John Fru Ndi who was aiming at the PRESIDENCY OF THE REPUBLIC is now AIMING, ONLY, TO BE THE SDF CHAIRMAN FOR LIFE. What a betrayal! How can the man Cameroonians were foolishly looking up to for salvation go so low and too mean? How can the very chairman who had asked Cameroonians to close their stores and businesses, and to boycott all French goods and business, be doing open business with a French Lottery company right in the heart of Bamenda, at the centre of the place where six innocent Bamenda children freely gave up their lives in supporter of Ni John Fru Ndi? Where is God indeed?

In this transition period in the life of the SDF, you have devoted your knowledge, talent and energy to the ideals and cause of successful democratic achievements. You have used the reservoir of creative dynamism that you possess as a strong catalyst for the development of the SDF. In fact, I would say that you demonstrated a great endowment of administrative abilities of co-ordination, leadership, decision-making and co-operation. You have shown great proficiency and assiduity in your work, and you have made a priceless contribution to our endeavours in making democracy a reality within the SDF. For sure, Ni John Fru Ndi and his overzealous NEC members have been rejoicing over your unjustified dismissal from NEC. For them, they have finally kicked out the troublemaker from their Njangi group. They will all stand the judgment of history. Those who have been sacrificed to make Ni John Fru Ndi the person he is today will turn around in their graves to curse him and his perpetrators of failure. Those Takebeng women couldn’t have displayed their sacred nakedness for nothing. These hostage takers will pay bitterly for their actions. These payments may take long to come, but they must come one day.

I thank you for trying to change the SDF into a progressive democratic environment. With you out of NEC, the road may look dark and long. However, I want to encourage you to do everything to ensure that we clear off any future shocks that may result from the poor leadership of Ni John Fru Ndi. Now that you are a free SDF member, out of the bondage in the NEC, you should use all the resources, documents and information you possess to release the cat out of the bag. It is now that Cameroonians are expecting you to say the plain naked truth, even if NEC has to dismiss you from the party. SDF members are now looking up to you as an eye opener. You have to demonstrate to the world that you did no wrong in trying to bring order in the SDF. This is the time, for if you falter in exposing the mafia within the SDF, it will be a failure of heart and spirit. It is believed, and rightly too, that goodness will always prevail. So take heart!

Rest assured, more than 98% of SDF militants stand behind you. The private press stands for genuine change and it will always support anyone who stands for it. If NEC couldn’t physically harm you when you were dinning with them, then rest assured that they cannot harm you now. They will only promise you with the prospect of evil that will NEVER take place. The fact that some NEC officials cannot talk openly and be identified clearly shows how dangerous they consider the victimization process that has been installed within the SDF.


Sincerely yours,

Reports are rife that the interim SG too has resigned because of similar comments made by the previouse. Something is wrong within the party. Every member, every citizen of Cameroon who loves the progress of the country should be deeply concerned about this situation. It doesn't matter to me, what you think democracy is. It matters to me that in politics mistakes can be made, but shouldn't be the bedrock for sacking. Such actions are counterproductive. I wonder if Chairman Fru Ndi and all his yes men will be members if we go on to apply their infamous article.

The Imminent Death of the Advanced School of Translators and Interpreters, ASTI Buea! By Fon Christopher Achobang, Buea Cameroon

When the memorandum of the Advanced School of Translators and Interpreters was made public on 30 May 2005, the school hierarchy and the University of Buea, quickly reacted with a condemnation of the document and issuing warnings to the President of the students’ association who oversaw its drafting. The authorities refused to listen to the cry of the students, instead setting up a formidable edifice for witch hunting and victimization. There is no question that the ASTI memo was the most consistent and incisive list of grievances from the state universities. This was the document that departed from the initial riotous nature of the April-May 2005 students’ uprising. It was like a shocker to Dr. Charles A Nama, Director of ASTI, and Dr Dorothy L. Njeuma, former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buea, dead and resurrected as Rector of University Yaounde I. Both had so many skeletons to conceal in their closets.
Many students called on their ASTI president to withdraw the memo they had signed because the Director of ASTI was threatening them with sanctions. He refused to bend saying the fight was a fundamental fight which must be fought in the interest of posterity and principles. The stage was now set for witch hunting. The learned Dr. Dorothy L. Njeuma refused to solve a problem, which had earlier been presented by the president and focused her cabinet reshuffle. Cabinet reshuffle, because she managed the University of Buea as her personal cabinet that she could twist and bend at will. She sacrificed the erudite tested science scholar Prof. Vincent Titanji, and Prof. Chia who thought he was serving MADAM. At ASTI she recommended the maintaining of Dr. Charles A. Nama as the Director, and the promotion of the recalcitrant Mr. Moїse Ateba Ngoa as Head of Division 1. The students went to all length to point out to the hierarchy of the University of Buea, that this duo, Nama- Ateba was a bane to ASTI. Unfortunately, as insensitive and impervious as most state authorities in Cameroon are, the destroyers were crowned and they quickly engaged in the dance of the zombies to trample on good. They refused to graduate the student president and instead recommended his suspension.
Today, as free persons, free from mental slavery, and as objective as possible lets visit ASTI eight months after the memorandum. An administration trapped in inertia, still lords it over this pearl of Cameroon’s professional education. They have imposed their personal style on the institution, which is becoming a graveyard of academic excellence and the mortuary of humanity. All the part time lecturers contacted from Yaounde have turned down the invitation to come back to ASTI. They are still bruised by the nasty treatment they have always received from Dr. Charles A Nama and his cohorts. There is still an acute shortage of lecture rooms and students are still being sent away from the halls because the faculties are already occupying them. The advanced deterioration of technical equipment in the interpretation and language laboratories has not been reversed. ASTI has no computers for Students and only tries to improvise sharing with the Information Technology Centre, a business centre of the University of Buea. There is still no respect of any programme of study at ASTI and if they are dreaming up one, it will not see the light of day this academic year. There is acute shortage of lecturers. For now, ASTI has only three professional translators; one into English, one into German and one into French. The school is still hiring the services of a burnt out lecturer who has never touched a computer keyboard, in this computer age, and somebody who is known to be an icon of the fraudulent practices replete in our educational system. The library is still to place orders for titles in translation and interpretation.
Score sheet. For the first semester 2005/2006, TRA 503 General Translation I; TRA 507, Specialized Translation I; TRA 603, General Translation III, which are some of the corps subjects in English translation have not been taught at all. Each of these subjects is supposed to be offered for 39 hours. TRA 509, History of Translation, taught by the Director of the school has never been taught for 10 hours. For this year he has appeared in class only once for about an hour. But as Director of the school, Dr. Charles A Nama collects his pay as a lecturer without effectively lecturing. This was the same thing his protégé Mr Moїse Ateba Ngoa has been doing. Since Cameroonians are hypocrites most folks in ASTI and UB will not raise a finger. It is incredible that we live in an environment, and everything around us is crumbling and we do not dare to stand up and arrest the situation from festering. It is most intriguing that those who stand up and raise their voices are crucified.
Effects: The calendar of activities of the University of Buea reveals that examinations for the first semester begin in this institution on February 13. The question is whether, this time around, like in the recent past, ASTI will start exams at the same time like the faculties. Under Dr. Dorothy L. Njeuma, ASTI was said to be part of UB and had to respect its calendar of activities. If they are obliged to respect this calendar this year, in what are the ASTI students going to be examined? Considering the acute shortage in space and lecturers, why did ASTI admit 35 students, 5 more than usual? It is certain that non-pedagogic and improvised planning will be used in awarding credits in the untaught courses to students. It is a shame to pedagogy and death of professional education.
Why is there no single natural Anglophone occupying a duty post in ASTI? Why does the State not appoint professional translators to administrative posts in ASTI in such a way that we will have a Director, Secretary General, Deputy Director who are translators and who can step in and teach translation courses? Tested and proven translators head most renowned translation schools, in the world. For instance, the Graduate School of Translators and Interpreters of the Monterey Institute of International Studies has a translator as its dean.
May I remind the authorities of this land, who have sealed their ears with wax and veiled their vision with black clothe, that eminent disaster looms over ASTI. If things continue the way they are going UNESCO will be invited to disregard ASTI. New, good translation schools are being created every day, all around the world. The monopoly held by ASTI is slipping. Let me invite the Director of Academic Affairs, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of Teaching, Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of research and Co-operation to go to ASTI and probe into this advanced stage of decay.
