Ashwell Molaba

Very interesting interview. The journalist posed very thoughtful questions. Glad, to see the journalist used my Christian Bible analogy. Akonteh appears not to have made up his mind. If he is trying to convey some principled maturity, then I fail to see it. I await everyone's comments.

rexon

Akonteh,

You (Lime Mbah Ndam) is one of the biggest criminals la republique du cameroun has doctrined from the southern Cameroons. As far as i am concerned, you will have many questions to answer in the near future when the southern Cameroons will be independent. You are those who stand to destroy our reputation as honest citizens even in the face of temptation in la republique du cameroun. It is clear in my opinion that you were corrupt. You used your vulgar nature to abuse the biya regime and became very popular among the grassroots. Then you used your position to made huge amount of wealth for yourself at the expense of the common man on the streets. Now, you have been used as a weapon to give the colonialist a motive not to leave power. you are guilty and we will deal with you.

Bangwa stupidity

Bangwa equation in
Contemporary politics

Since independence, beginning with the early Bangwa
politicians, Hon. Nkemcha, BTB Foretia etc, the
Bangwas have been basking in the political wilderness
of this country.
Definitely there are several reasons, a passive
observer would quickly question and may place the
blame at the doorsteps of the New Deal and their cry
of marginalization. In my humble opinion, the
responsibility for the political plight of the Bangwas
lies squarely on their shoulders. Each of them claims
to be omniscient and better than the other.
Caught up in a geographical and cultural quagmire,
the Bangwa vaccilitate between Northwesterners,
Westerners and Southwesterners, depending on their
interest at any given moment. And in the
circumstances, they conduct themselves in peculiar
ways, making it difficult for the rest of Cameroonians
to discern their roots.
So too has been their political thinking cap and
intelligence notoriously and derogatorily tagged “99
sense”. Anywhere a Bangwa finds his or herself, the
opportunity is exploited to manifest this cursed
intelligence, though there exist a few exceptions.
When Fru Ndi forced flung the doors for political
pluralism to blossom in Cameroon in the early 90, one
of theirs, Rtd. Ambassador, Henry Fossung saw this as
an opportunity to redeem his lost political and
diplomatic ambition from limbo. Hence, he rallied a
few of them to create his National Democratic Party,
NDP, in the early 1990s. Like a herd of sheep or
should l say ducklings, they queued up behind the NDP,
motivated by tribal instincts, although the now
moribund NDP had no political vision, the reason why
it could not go far. But the Bangwas, even the so call
intellectuals had no reason to believe in the
manifesto of the party, (if there was any), their
ambition was that a tribes man has also form a
political party.
But before long, considering that everyone in the
party had 99 senses, their purported intelligence
clashed and in the same spirit, they trooped out and
queued behind the SDF after failing to impose their
“intelligence” and “99 sense” on another 99. Together
with the SDF, they curse the CPDM for plundering the
nation into chaos since the birth of the New Deal.
This was championed by the likes of Martin Nkemngu who
today is donning in the very CPDM. What demagogy?
Others such as Anu Francis, a certain Nkemason etc
last weekend embraced the very CPDM they criticize a
few days ago. More are warming up to join the drowning
CPDM boat in Lebialem in the days ahead.
From the forgoing, it can be discerned that there is
something seriously wrong with the Bangwa people. If
you have had the opportunity of being close or working
with a good number of Bangwa people, then you would
bear me out on this. He says one thing and the next
minute, he does the opposite. He dines with you with a
spoon in one hand and behind he is hiding a gun. If a
Bangwa man tells you to wait, don’t listen, instead
move 5 km ahead and by the time you reach, you will
discover with dismay that if you had waited, you would
have been 5 km behind him.
Today, the Bangwas cry against marginalization in
the SDF, instead of promoting their kin to take over
the leadership of the party, they hide behind and are
projecting demagogues like Ngwasiri and Muna. Fighting
marginalization indeed! Or is it intelligence by half
or 99? Where is their Bangwa brother, Dr Boniface Fobin's JDP party which he used to dupe the government 30 millions as a presidential candidate in 2004? Weh Bangwa people! 'Overdone na Mbout' as the corrupted Lapiro would say.
Running to the CPDM will not in anyway help the
Bangwa people. This is the very regime they have been
accusing of marginalizing them for decades. It is now
clear that their “over intelligence” has been the arch
heel of their so call marginalization. They failed in
the CPDM, NDP, LDA and SDF because of their vicious
tendencies; they will continue to fail because they
are still to understand themselves.
While some are sheepishly queuing up behind the CPDM
now, some so call industrious sons, mostly from the
Diaspora are opting for a “new opinion” as can be seen
in write-ups in local Bangwa tabloids (a la radio
milles collines) and internet postings. They are not
courageous enough as usual to call it a party, but go
ahead to state that such an opinion can give them
representation in parliament to enable them play the
broker role like Dakole Daisala’s MDR in 1992.
Let them go ahead and create a party. It will go
like all others. I also hope that Ngwasiri and Ben
Muna, the evil forces behind this Bangwa equation are
lured into the vicious cycle.
It is high time the Bangwas take an introspective
view of themselves and the political road covered this
far and come out with positive resolutions denouncing
their tribal and nepotic view of contemporary politics
in Cameroon and the true Bangwa identity. This should
give them the opportunity to map out a blue print for
their future political survival.
If they fail to learn from the disgrace they got
from Father Etienne’s blunders and also from their
ongoing self-inflicted problems in the SDF, their new
exploits in the CPDM and “new opinion” will only lead
them to a bleaker political future.


The decadence of Nkemngu Martin and his show of shame
in Lebialem

At last this news organ has been vindicated. In its
edition number 113 of Wednesday March 8 – 14, 2006,
the paper prophesied that Nkemngu Martin, Ben Muna,
Ngwasiri “Iscariot” and others were CPDM agents out to
hijack the party and auction.
The article was highlighted in the front page,
captioned: “Muna, Ngwasiri, Nkemngu openly trading SDF
to CPDM.” In it, the paper pointed out the dubious
intentions of these individuals. Nkemngu was singled
out as an archenemy of the SDF since inception.
Last weekend in his native Lebialem, he confirmed
the fears when he decamped to the CPDM. The news of
his decampment to the CPDM did not come as a surprise
to The UnExpected. All along he has been an agent of
the regime in the party. Having realized that the
party was too strong to infiltrate, he has decided to
go back to his house.
Martin Nkemngu has never been a successful
politician. In fact, he has confirmed himself as the
greatest political prostitute of the century, jumping
from one political platform to another. Only last
month, Nkemngu was on the air castigating the CPDM as
the worst political institution on earth, today that
very institution is the best and the SDF under which
he used to castigate the CPDM is now the reverse. What
hypocrisy!
Last weekend, Nkemngu and a horde of other kinsmen,
a good number of them riff-raffs carried their show of
shame to Menji where they disgracefully paraded
themselves before CRTV cameras as new recruits of the
ruling clique. Clad in CPDM attire, Nkemngu babbled
that he was quitting the SDF because Fru Ndi was
dictatorial. Another scallywag who even lack what to
feed on also had the guts to talk about the SDF
kingpin, Ni John Fru Ndi. After his Lebialem charade,
Nkemngu phoned some newspapers and lied that he
decamped to the CPDM with over 300 SDF militants. Can
Nkemngu tell us how many SDF militants followed him
into the CPDM? A CPDM source that attended the
conference made The UnExpected to understand that a
good number of those who paraded themselves before Tv
cameras as SDF militants decamping into the CPDM were
youths ferried in from various parts of the country,
mostly hungry youths from Dschang to deceive the CPDM
that Nkemngu was a strong force.
The UnExpected was reliably informed that Nkemngu
went to the prime minister’s office begging that he
was tired of being a proofreader in Cameroon Tribune
especially as he is near retirement. He was promised a
juicy appointment, which could take him out of the
ridiculous job he was performing as proofreader of
English adverts. These were some of the behind moves
that caused Nkemngu’s cross over to the CPDM.
However, read below a repeat version of an earlier
article published in edition number 113 concerning
Nkemngu’s attitude towards the SDF since the launching
of the party in 1990.
As for the likes of Nkemasong Sylvester, he is also
near retirement and having received severe physical
torture during the last twin elections in 2002, he is
not prepared for such beatings again. The other
so-called, former Southwest SDF Provincial Secretary,
Asaba Atabong is a non-quantity that was more of a
liability to the party than an asset.
In fact, Asaba was a pest to the party and its
militants. His resignation is highly welcome because
SDF militants will at least take their leave from his
constant harassment for financial help and assistance.
Lebialem CPDM militants have said there is no place
for the runaway SDF militants. “If these horde can
cause havoc in a democratic party as the SDF, how much
more of a dictatorial one like ours, a concerned
Lebialem CPDM militant observed. However, Nkemngu and
co. are jumping into a sinking boat. The CPDM through
its Patron, President Paul Biya has decided to truly
democratize and if the current trend of events is
anything to go by, then Nkemngu and co. should know
that the boat they think is going to anchor them
safely might likely be a dangerous one.
In order to safe face, he tells those who bother to
listen to his tales that the decision to go the soya
way was precipitated by the grassroot. These are false
and misleading claims. Who do these demagogues think
they are deceiving?
Another bogus claim by the horde is that the SDF
hasn’t got the Southwest province at heart. Warp
reasoning. For the over 15 years or more that Nkemngu
and co. militated in the SDF, is it only today that
they see Southwest marginalisation in the party?
Nkemngu and his “gang” should be old enough to know
that all those who have jumped from the SDF into the
CPDM have ended up miserable and frustrated. Thomas
Tabenyang, Willy Ekema, Chief Namme, Dr. Samuel
Tchwenko, Nja Kwa Leolin etc.
There are so many staunch CPDM militants in Lebialem
who are still grappling with their fate in the ruling
CPDM. There are still to find solace with the party.
What more of political prostitutes and adventurers in
the likes of Nkemngu, Formin, Anu etc.
There is no gold in the CPDM. All that it takes to be
a politician is consistency, loyalty and respect for
rules and regulations. This is how Lebialem CPDM
militants have been surviving, eventhough, they are
the most marginalized in that party. The Lebialem CPDM
should guard against the hawks rushing in now. They
are nothing but position seekers. Thank God, Lebialem
already has several dedicated militants who are
standing tall in the party and would always dwarf the
new recruits. We have the talented Nelson Fomenky, Dr.
Bernard Foju etc. Who will give Nkemngu and co. a
place in the CPDM? The so called mass resignation of
Lebialem SDF militants into the CPDM is a grave
political blunder and the end of Nkemngu politically.
Nkemngu Martin – Enemy of SDF since inception (The
Heron No. 113 of Wednesday March 8 - 14, 2006).
Martin Nkemngu is supposed to be the 3rd National
Assistant Communication Secretary of the SDF. Yet he
is masquerading that he is the national Communication
Secretary. How he became an assistant national
secretary for communication of the party was and still
remains a puzzle to all and sundry.
When Fru Ndi launched the SDF in 1990 in Bamenda,
Cameroon Tribune, wrote a defamatory article against
the party and the chairman. Fru Ndi did not take the
blasphemous publication by Nkemngu’s newspaper
lightly. He dragged the newspaper to court. Martin
Nkemngu, then chief of Sopecam for the Northwest was
the one standing for the paper against the SDF party.
Through out the hearing, he was defending the
government paper that tarnished the image of the SDF.
After the case, Bamenda was no more a safe ground for
him. He was hurriedly transfered to the Southwest, his
province of origin in the same capacity. But due to
his usual vaulting ambition, he attempted a putsch
against SWELA. But the wonder boy from K-Town, Caven
Nnoko Mbele floored him hands down. As it is his
habit, he created a faction of the association, which
the administration of the province banned and termed
it illegal.
Nkemngu continued to operate the illegal body
despite repeated warnings and threats. But he had to
pay dearly for it as he was sacked as chief of
Southwest SOPECAM and sent to Yaounde as a mere
proofreader of adverts. That did not mean any lesson
to Nkemngu that disrespect for hierarchy and
avaricious do not pay.
It is the same spirit of division that he is
attempting to implant in the SDF. But he should be
reminded that the SDF is not SWELA. This is a party
that precious blood of Northwest sons was spilled for
and no adventurer should attempt to toy with it.
Nkemngu is alleged to be the one who indoctrinated
and misled the learned Prof. Asonganyi to attempt a
coup against the SDF. His hatred for the SDF and Fru
Ndi is not an affair of today; it is an age-old story
since the creation of the party. He hopped into the
SDF after another failed coup attempt in the LDA where
he was a militant to oust Mola Njoh Litumbe. This is
not a man SDF militants should be bothering about.


BenB

Which way to go: Yaounde or Bamenda? Big dilemma facing many SDF officials and militants now at a cross-roods. Many would just stay home, many who like Akonteh want a settlement or nothing.

That's bad for the SDF and it's infortunate that some who think they love the party have their fingers crossed hoping THEIR convention, not the OTHER, would pull a bigger crowd. Bigger crowd to them would mean they won.

Little do they see that just two conventions, even if only Ngwasiri and his wife attended that in Yaounde, would imply the moral death of the SDF.

And what if Ngwasiri pulled more people to Yaounde? Would such spin-doctors then come round to see he was right?

Common ground, is what the warring factions need now. The kind of common ground which was reached just before the 2004 presidential election with some militants who had either been 8.2ed (EIGHT-TWOed) or had resigned, returning to the party, making the SDF look strong like a house at peace with itself ready to face the CPDM "enemy".

All that relatively good SDF showing in the 2004 presidential election even after its coalition gaffe, was, I think thanks to that September reconciliation.

And whom does the SDF have to thank for that reconciliation? Asonganyi!!

Now he's been booted out. Who will reconcile the SDF now?

Other elections (parliamentary & municipal) are just around the corner next year. Going for such crucial elections a divided house like UPC (K)-Kodock, (H)-Hogbe Nlend, etc?

Habba! Even SDF? Because of over done? Over done na mbut o mola. Be warned, SDF.

LA JUSTICE FRAPPE LE NEC

La chambre civile et commerciale du tribunal de grande instance du Mfoundi statuant par jugement avant dire droit le 24 avril 2006, a ordonné la suspension provisoire des mesures prises par le comité exécutif national du Sdf depuis l’expiration de son mandat en avril 2003.

Une décision qui fera date dans l’histoire des partis politiques au Cameroun et que les demandeurs considèrent comme “ un a.d.d. interlocutoire ”. L’audience ordinaire a démarré en présence d’un grand nombre d’avocats commis par les uns pour défendre les intérêts des demandeurs et les autres pour défendre ceux des défendeurs, les premiers ayant saisi le tribunal par assignation contre les autres pour s’entendre annuler tous les actes pris depuis trois ans en violation les dispositions statutaires. Côté demandeurs il y avait Clément Ngwasiri Nforti représenté par ses avocats Maurice Nkouendjin Yotnda, David Tamo et Charles Tchoungang plaidant également pour le compte de ses collègues Emmanuel Nguenang, président de la circonscription électorale de Yaoundé 2ème, Pascal Zamboué, ancien président provincial du Centre, Jean Jacques Ohandja Enama, ancien secrétaire provincial à l’organisation du Centre, Assaba Tabong, ancien secrétaire provincial du Sud Ouest, Denis Mballa, secrétaire à l’organisation de Douala 2e n°02, Zacharie Ngatom président de la circonscription électorale de Yaoundé 1er et Margaret Nyah, ancien membre du Nec.

Côté défendeurs, il y avait Ni John Fru Ndi, Joseph Mbah Ndam, Emmanuel Yoyo, Annembom Munju, Odette Ngatom, Martin Nkemgu, Odile Mengue Mballé et Emmanuel Tchokongoué représentés par leurs avocats.
Les défendeurs ont d’abord présenté une demande de renvoi, au motif qu’il y avait une nouvelle constitution ; mais les demandeurs ont soutenu avoir communiqué les pièces aux défenseurs et que, à la suite de huit audiences devant le juge des référés, tout était déjà dit dans ce dossier en état d’être retenu. Plusieurs objections du côté des défenseurs. Les demandeurs trouvent un autre angle d’attaque et sollicitent que, sans aller au fond, le tribunal sache pourquoi il est saisi et prenne une mesure conservatoire pour sauver le Sdf de sombrer dans le drame de l’Upc, en suspendant les mesures prises par toutes les deux tendances jusqu’à l’aboutissement de la procédure lorsqu’il aura vidé sa saisine. Pour les demandeurs, il est question de sauver le principal parti politique de l’opposition camerounaise et de mettre fin à la cacophonie actuelle où il est difficile de dire qui représente effectivement le Sdf.
En réaction à cette demande Me Mbock estime qu’en décidant dans ce sens, le tribunal aura sonné le glas du Sdf en paralysant ses activités. Mais, pour les demandeurs, Me Tchoungang renchérit : “ Il s’agit d’interpeller nos hommes politiques et dire qui a raison et qui a tort ”. Il ne comprend pas que le second parti du pays cherche à se dérober au droit.

L’affaire mise en délibéré pour une heure de suspension d’audience est enfin tranchée dans les sens voulu par les demandeurs Tamo, Nkouendjin et Tchoungang.
Par jugement avant dire droit, le tribunal constate qu’à l’expiration du mandat du Nec en avril 2003, il n’a pas été renouvelé. Il constate par ailleurs que conformément aux statuts, la cellule des conseillers est le seul organe compétent pour prendre des décisions en période de crise. En conséquence, le tribunal ordonne la suspension provisoire des mesures prises par les deux parties.

A la fin de l’audience, Me Tchoungang ne cachait pas sa satisfaction : “ Nous venons de gagner au Cameroun le processus de l’alternance par le droit ”. Pour Me Nkouendjin, il s’agit d’un exemple à suivre, car lorsque des membres d’un parti constatent la violation du statut, ils ont le droit de saisir le tribunal de grande instance. Pour lui, il s’agit d’un add interlocutoire.
Du côté adverse, Me Tchokongoué, Me Mbah Ndam ou Me Mbock estiment que cette décision n’est pas celle qui convenait, car le tribunal ne peut pas ordonner la mort d’un parti politique. Le juge a pris une décision attaquable et non-conforme à la réalité. Et pourtant, avant de rendre son verdict, M. Sone a expliqué qu’il agit sans pression aucune, dans intérêt des parties et dans le souci de préserver la paix au sein de la famille Sdf.

STUPID AKONTEH...Confusionist!

That was a very thoughtful interview. Thumb up Mr. Charly Ndi Chia & Walter Wilson Nana. You tried your utmost best to get that guy cough out his mind. He's just playing a Chameleon. This is the way journalists should hold their interviewees tight down. I love those questions. It showed that Akonteh is a politician without principles. There's a divide and as a member of the party "which side do you think is right"...that's all. You go beating around the bush. Who do you want to believe you. Nonsense!

Son Of Ako - LSE.

Ashwell Molaba

I don't see anyone condemning the tribalism being preached in this forum. Am I the only one with eyes to see? What has this article got to do with tribes? People read, see that tribalism will only tear us apart.

rexon

Ashwell,

The writer above is sick. Why then should we condemn a sick person? We should instead strive to cure him.

Hope you understand.

Atangha

Honorable Akonteh is living in his past! He can't come out clear and tell the world what he wants or where he's heading to. We know all these people that have been contaminated by the MUNA's virus - politics of in-betweenism and betrayal.

We should not distract ourselves by the so-called courts verdicts in Yaounde. On the other hand, we should intensify preparations towards this roundez-vous. We should continue to teach other Cameroonians that we brought democacy to Cameroon.

Since Hon. Akonteh is still doubting, it is the convention in B'da that will hold. If he has finally repented, we will accept him. All I can advise him is to continue his militancy in Bafut. He should see how Hon. Fopoussi is fairing.

Tayong(Copenhagen)

Can someone help me out? Guys if you agree with me there is an anglophone problem(no matter how you think it should be solved) please I may solicitate even in English from you a comment at Cameroon-info.net .There is an article that has been published about the dangers of Paul Biya's sudden death if it happens. I have left a comment there that has infuriated all francophone ,I said the first danger will be the anglophone problem that will spark off.
The whole forum is on my head.Can someone here back me up?Remember you might not be a supporter of SCNC ,for i too may not,but if you agree there is an anglophone problem please do leave a comment there and let these francophones know we are united .

2 CONVENTIONS IN 2 DIFFERENT PLACES ON THE SAME DAY WILL BE GOOD.

It's not a good think per se. But i feel it will be good for people (party members, sympathisers, observers, etc, etc).

After such a situation, people will then understand who is who in the SDF.

It will teach many people a big lesson. Some will be disappointed wjile others will be hailed.

So, for me it will be better for the 2 conventions (Y,de and B,da) on the same day.

Stupid things will be said and done. And inteligent things will be equally heard. But from which camp? That will be the question.

You might be as bad in politics as I am (if at all i am)
Failure to convene a single convention spells doom for this party

Ben Muna was not readmitted by NEC. He was readmitted by the Reconciliation Forum of September 2004 in Bamenda.

So the decision by the Yaounde court cancelling all decisions taken by NEC since its mandate expired in 2003, cannot annul Ben Muna's readmission, though it cancels the dismissal of Ngwasiri and Asonganyi.

Therefore, Muna, Asonganyi, Ngwasiri and any others maliciously driven away from the SDF for challenging bad politics are bone fide militants today. It also means that Zamboue Pascal remains Centre Provial chairman. Only Nkemngu has voted with his own feet to leave. Or would he want to return now?

And NAC under Ngwasiri is now recognised to be in charge of the SDF.

We now call on Ngwasiri, Muna, Asonganyi, Zamboue and their associates not to use their victory vindictively.

They should stretch a hand of fellowship to Fru Ndi, Mbah Ndam, Yoyo, Awudu Mbaya, Anembom Monju, etc and follow Asonganyi's prescription for a return to the original platform to reconstruct the SDF.

Ngwasiri, Muna, Asonganyi , if they became vindictive, would be proving to be just the other side of the same spoiled coin as the people they've been condemning.

Now is time for them to prove that it's the interest of the SDF and Cameroon they want not the head of Fru Ndi, Mbah Ndam, etc.

The truth shall always set you free, especially if you strive earnestly as Ngwasiri and his group have.

The Mfoundi High Court has finally given its interpretation of the SDF constitution.

It is an interpretation and for all those politicians who say they are trying to promote democracy,should now show their leadership by not claiming victory for themselves. This should be an opportunity for the different SDF factions to reconcile and not for others to jubilate as winners.
In a crippled country like Cameroon, those who have the ordinary man at heart should call for calm and a forum for reconciliation while those who misinterpreted the party's constition should apologize and not see themselves as giving in too quickly.
Every party growing is bound to make mistakes in the interpretation of the constition that is supposed to bind them, and given a situation like this, lovers of democracy should concert and take the beloved SDF party forward by not claiming victorious. A true leader does not claim victory over his opponents when he succeeds in his democratic endeavours since he knows this will cause futher divide than unity. His success serves as a platform for him to bring all dissidents together. The SDF is bound to move forward but who is capable of taking it forward?
I strongly condemn Jua for saying that he does not belong to the Ngwasiri camp. It is obvious from the interview that he does not know where he belongs. An aspiring leader who does not know where he belongs, does not know where he wants to take the people to. He is just dabbling with politics and does not know where to place his next step. Please, Jua it is high time you apologise for your comments if you want to prove to be a true leader.
Ni John, Mbah Ndam and the rest should equally apologise to Ngwasiri and stop playing the African tradition where "losers never accept defeat". This quote is an overstatement.
Fru Ndi had done great to the party, for all his sacrifice, hardwork and ardent desire for the party to succeed. I equally admire Ni John's courage but he should also remember that "the courageous mouse that does not want advice from the experienced might land in the cat's mouth". Again, this is an overstatement.
I am neither for Ngasiri nor for Ni John, I am for the legality of the SDF. If Ni John had exercised a bit more leadership, this crisis would not have come to this point.
If the ruling by the High Court is true, Mbah Ndam should immediatley resign as legal adviser to the chairman and parliamentary group leader for his incapability to lead the party. I would say, Mbah Ndam brought Ni John into this.

SDF : hypothèques sur le congrès de mai


ESSAMA ESSOMBA
[26/04/2006]

Une décision du tribunal de grande instance du Mfoundi suspend les résolutions du NEC (comité exécutif national) et du NAC (cellule des conseillers).

La crise qui secoue le SDF (Social Democratic Front), le second parti politique représenté à l’Assemblée nationale, s’aggrave au fil des semaines. La chambre civile et commerciale du tribunal de grande instance du Mfoundi, au terme d’une audience tenue le lundi 24 avril, a décidé de suspendre aussi bien les résolutions du Comité exécutif national de ce parti que celles de la Cellule des conseillers. Conséquence immédiate : les résolutions du NEC convoquant la convention du SDF à Bamenda les 26, 27 et 28 mai ainsi que celles du NAC annonçant un congrès du même parti à Yaoundé le 26 mai sont toutes suspendues. Le tribunal a décidé de renvoyer l’affaire au 22 mai 2006 pour examen au fond.

Pour tenter d’apporter un éclairage sur cette phase de la crise qui secoue le SDF, il faut remonter au mois de février dernier. En effet, au cours d’une conférence de presse tenue après une réunion du NAC à Yaoundé, le président de la cellule des conseillers, Clement Ngwashiri, explique que le mandat des dirigeants du parti et notamment ceux du NEC est forclos depuis 2003. Conformément aux statuts du SDF, dit-il, c’est le NAC qui doit diriger le parti jusqu’à l’élection des responsables lors du prochain congrès. Ces déclarations le mettent évidemment en conflit avec le NEC et plus particulièrement avec le Chairman John Fru Ndi. Exclu du SDF par le NEC, Clement Ngwashiri convoque cependant un congrès à Yaoundé le 26 mai, jour où le chairman entend faire tenir la convention à Bamenda. Par ailleurs, Clement Ngwashiri et d’autres membres exclus du parti saisissent le tribunal de grande instance de Yaoundé qui vient de rendre un premier jugement.

Cette affaire " Anciens du SDF contre Ni John Fru Ndi et autres " constitue une phase de la lutte de leadership au sein du parti. Qui a le droit de convoquer le congrès ? Qui contrôlera le SDF après le congrès ? Sans attendre la réponse du tribunal à la première question, Ni John Fru Ndi a rendu public hier à Bamenda un communiqué confirmant l’organisation de la convention dans cette ville dès le 26 mai. Réagissant hier par téléphone, à la demande de C.T, sur la décision du tribunal de grande instance de Yaoundé, Clement Ngwashiri a exprimé sa satisfaction sur la suspension des résolutions du NEC depuis 2003, tout en regrettant que les résolutions du NAC ne soient pas confirmées. Par ailleurs, il estime que Ni John Fru Ndi devrait respecter et non contester la décision du tribunal et par conséquent s’abstenir d’organiser une convention le 26 mai à Bamenda.

L’issue de l’autre phase de la guerre de leadership est connue. La démission de l’ancien secrétaire général du SDF le Pr Asonganyi et celle de Nkemgu Martin, ancien responsable national de la communication ont été suivies par le ralliement de plus de 350 militants du Lebialem au parti au pouvoir le RDPC. Rien n’indique que la crise touche à sa fin.

BenF & Rene Murena,
Brothers, thanks for the postings! I expected you guys to acknowledge that Prof. NGWASIRI had long resigned from NAC and that Mr. FRU NDI is now chairman of NAC, but you guys tactfully avoided it. Nonetheless, a true lover of democracy knows that leadership is not got thru the Mfoundi high court and that the SDF is not only in Mfoundi but all over the Cameroons.

Unfortunately for Prof. NGWASIRI and co., the people have appealed against the judgement and it has also been suspended. So, the convention will hold in Bamenda as programmed. If Prof. NGWASIRI feels that he has a cause, he should go on with his convention in Y'de & can count on the likes of Mr. NKEMNGU to bring him militants.

This is my advise to those who believe in Prof. NGWASIRI & co. "Each age has its beauty and its strain, its pleasure and its pain and with any piece missing, we are not the same".

It was NEC that created the reconciliation committee.so if its decisions since or before then have been cancelled then Muna is not an sdf.I hope you will understand this simple analogy.You would also bear with me that even if he is elected by the Ngwasiri convention in yaounde it would be correct because they would have elected another cpdm comrade.It's a cpdm gathering.

Mr Christopher Ngwasiri,

I am not an SDF militant or sympathiser, but a concerned southern Cameroonian.

I will like to answer to some of your previous claims in this forum and highlight some other concerns.

1-Your critique of watesih’s "illusion" (as you may want to classify it) of “boycott of French goods”.

Citing from SJ, France is the virus that has caused us this malady that is leading us to all this clutter. Once we can intimidate and steer France out, then we are some steps presumptuous to a solution to our problems.

Why do you think the Arabs are boycotting American products? They preach it and they keep preaching it. The more they do it, the more they have more followers. I will keep asking similar questions here and will encourage watesih’s and others to do the same as long as I do not find a lasting solution to my problems. I will encourage watesih’s to keep preaching what he believes in as long as he has not got a solution to his problems. Why do you think we should stop discussing what bothers us when we have not got a solution?

About fru Ndi’s renting his house to the PMUC and the money he received when his wife was sick and died in Switzerland from the SDF. Don’t you know that is the biggest political blunder that Fru Ndi has made in his life? Fru ndi and the SDF is a fad of ancient times and I will advise you guys to sample communal opinion before you hang on this SDF frolics. Politics work by the majority and once you have lost their confidence, you have no raison d'être to verbalize for them.

2- Your constant writings to defend your brother and his supporters in the SDF;

The Watesih’s, Ashwell, Rexon, Klemenceau, Ma Mary, Akoson, Agbormbai, Samleyin, Tayong, etc has been writing on almost every single topic that is of the interest for future generations. Be it SDF, CPDM, SCNC, Education, Sonara, etc. That shows that they have genuine interest “at least” in the future of African children. We may have different approaches to a solution to our problem but we share ideas on how to provide a solution. On the other hand, you registered and starting putting long articles here only to defend your brother or relatives in the SDF.

Your earliest comment in this forum was to acclaim how ngwasiri clement is a very good man and what he has done for your family. Who then is a TRIBALIST, ANTAGONIST or NEPOTIST? Many in this forum have made realistic comments that permits us learn from different directions and ways of how to trim our ideas. But all what you say here is this or that in favour of the ngwasiri camp, this or that about Mukete, watesih’s, etc.

Your use of words like antagonism, nepotism, tribalism, Cameroonians etc, to describe other peoples attitude in this forum is what I have described before and will describe now as “Choice of words” that is merely meant to intimidate and drive some writers out of this forum. If there is someone that should be described with these words, it is you. You came to this forum simply because you wanted to defend what belongs to your brothers and pals. Almost all your contributions are based on the internal wrangling in the SDF.

You aver that some members here are hiding their identity in this forum speaks for itself why you are in this forum. Are you interested in reading what has been written by the watesih’s or in knowing his identity? That goes to demonstrate that you are one of those who have been employed to hunt for people’s identity.

You seem to stand against what you see as the SCNC antics and you want to take a viewpoint that seems like you are not a tribalist. My own elder brother is a CPDM and I am SCNC but we still help each other during hard times but do not discuss politics if we want to have peace. So to say, there is nothing wrong if you come here to support your brother but you should do that because you think he has something to offer to whatever you called la republique du Cameroon. You should not come here to discuss about how good he is to your family, etc. that is and has never been our concern.

Yes, we can be all Cameroonians as you claim but I will like to ask you to defend in this forum your constitutionally rights as a Cameroonians, I will like you explain some of the issues I have been raising like why sonara, delmonte is and has been paying its taxes in douala, why mundemba cannot have a road, etc. I will advise you take a rest and go out of this forum.
