What became of the famous Memo?

Who was it that took the famous Memo to Bamenda? Samleyin, knganjo or Langaison? And where have they disappeared to?

Don't they know that just for publishing that great magic wand Memo on this forum obliges them to also publish a report on the Memo's performance at the Bamenda convention? Let's hear how the Memo moved mountains in Bamenda.

Or did the Memo get missing between Europe and Bamenda like "coup de couer" money (dixit Kountchou Koumegni). Or maybe the Memo was the blueprint for all the wonderful things that came out of the Bamenda convention.

So, maybe the contributors to that Memo must be Bamenda heroes now. Their names must have been written in gold and placed in the Bamenda hall of fame, especially as most of them have scored outstanding marks dished out by LSE professor-in-waiting - my prayerful friend, the son of Ako, LSE.

Now those who didn't contribute to that great Memo must be regretting. See they had a chance and missed it; a chance to make history as those who said for the first time things that have never been said in the SDF. Genius bushfallers!

Who won't envy this great Memo writers here? They had good sense of judgement not to be distracted by calls here for us to seek common ground to solve this SDF crisis and prevent the holding of even one-and-one-hundredth conventions.

We said that would spell doom for the party. We urged them to keep aside childish praise-singing and look at more important issues as raised by various party leaders who have disagreed with Ni John.

What effort did we not make here? We ran a countdown to make us see the gravity of the problem. They said NO, na Ni John we want. Take party go, leave we Ni John. Here we are today. And they want us to clap for them?

What can we add when they already sent such a brilliant Memo with a golden touch? Let them put out the fire they started. Then at the end of the day, let them score 40/20. O shame o!

** When we come back, we'll be talking about the red carpet reception given to the famous Memo in Bamenda.

** Later, how the praise-singing on this forum stood in Ni John's way to seek common ground with his critics.

Diboule like Kohtem
(Le Messager)


Le Messager establishes similarities between Fon Doh's fate after the Kohtem assassination with the fate of those we understand assassinated Diboule. You know them.

Read on:

Après l'assassinat de John Kohtem à Bamenda il y a quelques années par la milice du tristement célèbre chef de Balikoumbat, les militants du Social democratic front avaient crié au scandale. Condamnant ainsi avec la dernière énergie cet acte barbare.

Aujourd'hui, ils ont fait la preuve par dix que dans les pseudo démocraties comme celle du Cameroun, tous les coups sont permis.

S'il était finalement démontré que les agresseurs de Diboulé Grégoire sont des militants du Sdf venus de Bamenda comme beaucoup l’affirment, le Sdf se retrouvera au banc des accusés pour une affaire d'homicide volontaire.

Les autorités gouvernementales qui sont soupçonnées d'avoir donné des instructions aux forces de l'ordre pour ne pas intervenir en temps réel pour secourir des militants en détresse, se sont empressées de rendre publique le communiqué indiquant le nombre de victimes et de personnes arrêtées.

Les autorités de la République disent également avoir ouvert une enquête, pour établir les responsabilités des uns et des autres.

PARLIAMENTARY IMMUNITY GOING...

Fon L.

Geerts,
The best teacher is one who uses examples. Can you boast of a posting of yours as an example worth emulating.Each time you make a contribution,it is solely to insult a particular group of persons.In your own school,were you taught only partisan or subjective judgment?
Do you think the maturity you expect from contributions can be reflected in your postings?

The issue at stake is about the socio-political crisis of our country;challenge those you keep insulting by making a mature contribution on this topic.

It,s sad to hear fru has been re,elected.However there,s much trouble ahead.

THE BEST VS WORST POSTINGS RECENTLY.

Dear readers,

I'd like to grade postings made recently. Note that this is a fair and balanced judgement I'm making. I don't fear anyone so there's no bias in the results. I think that making a weekly stop to assess what we write here is not unnecessary. I believe that the results should encourage us do more. To judge the neutrality of the results, readers could scroll up and re-read the comments of those I intend to grade.

Note that there's a GREAT DISPARITY between the PASSERS and the FAILURES. Those who passed did it well and those who failed failed woefully.

Here are the BEST ten and the WORST ten.

FAILURES - FIRST FROM THE BOTTOM:
1. Namondo Elangwe......0/20
1. Faked Mukete ......0/20
2. Momo ......0.5/20
3. Dr. Agbormbai ......1/20
3 SharpTalk ......1/20
3. Spako .....1/20
6. Teribobs ......2/20
6. Drogba ......2/20
6. Charles Ngu ......2/20
9.Sartmecalo ......2.5/20
10. Amin ......2.5/20
10. Chris Ngwasiri ......2.5/20


THOSE WHO PASSED - FIRST FROM THE TOP:

THE HONOUR ROLL;
1. Mbu B. .......17/20(GREAT MATURITY)
1. Watesih .......17/20
1. TEK .......17/20
1. Rene Murena ......17/20
1. Neba Funiba ......17/20
6. Aaron Nyankwe ....16/20
6. Knangjo ....16/20

OTHER PASSERS;
8. Fonchingong ......14/20
9. Ndi O. ......13/20
10. Fon Lawrence .....12/20
10. Klemenceau .....12/20
12. BenB ......10/20
12. ORIGINAL Mukete....10/20
12. Vally of England ...10/20
12. Fritzane Kiki ...10/20

Remarks: All those who failed failed cos they could not write independently without calling on some god to help them. Secondarily, they failed woefully to present facts that could help build Cameroon.
THOSE who passed atleast did well. Those who scored from 10-14 concentrated on hailing praises to a faction and or gave points without proofs.They kept on talking about themselves or kept repeating what they think they strongly believe in. All these do not solve the situation in Cameroon. THOSE who scored from 16-20 got themselves either entangled in a debate that forced them into providing solutions to the problems in Cameroon or they gave maningful debate that was void of insults and begged the forum to think deep on the issues that are.

NOTE: If you want to pass well next semester and or want to make the debate mature and living, CONCENTRATE on the issues and ignore persons faking names. And when you give a fact, give HARD proofs such that one will not be tempted for a second to raise their eyebrows. Hope this is helpful!

Also note that these are results presented based on discusions in the last few days. BenB would have scored more had he remained neutral and provided more solutioin to the problems. He talked about RECONCILIATION - yes! But he later diverted his attention. Inteligent Klemenceau RIGHTLY describes BenB as he summarises and I quote; "...I thought the chameleon you are was here to make sure that the SDF is not divided? You are now talking of delegates moving to Yaoundé because they finally saw into it that the Yaoundé convention finally was going on. I thought you were here preaching oneness?
This is somebody who started by saying "I love Fru Ndi". You are now castigating Fru Ndi openly unlike before. At first you were writing in coded language. You have now squarely embraced the great liar Mukete. This forum is now good for you guys to write as much as possible...."

Mbu B showed a high degree of maturity. Enjoy his recent arguments with Watesih and tell me if would've been able to count the successes should this forum would've been that matured!

SPECIAL CASES:
REXON , TAYONG , Ngembus Fonlon Mbock , MASSMOYO ...They've got a claim that EVEN the international community fully recognises. Biya and those who claim it doesn't exist latently recognise it but they're shying away from addressing it. The aforementioned names have all failed woefully in drawing a plan for the liberation of the peoples of Southern Cameroons. They're even worse than FAILURES. They keep citing successes made by other secessionists movement and fail to draw a road map to liberate their territories.

My hands are clean!

I enjoin us all to engage in CONSTRUCTIVE debate and the force of argument.

Akoson

Massamoyo and Rexon,

I rated you guys as worst cos the SCNC is the most important thing in the history of all Southern Cameroonians including Inoni, Mafany, Endeley, Mukete and their likes who openly declare that it doesn't exist. Infact, these guys will be the FIRST to vOTE if we've to go on a referandum. Forget about all the NOISE they make. Being the most important issue in our lives, we want it done soonest. But instead of you guys to keep informing us of the day to day moves we get nothing- WE GET INSULTS AND SDF. You guys have turned from your mission(discussing SCNC into discussin Mukete's ideas SDF).

Massamoyo, can you now admit that you guys have failed in your mission? When you talk of the status quo reached by the movement how do you mean? It goes to confirm my results. Many things happen in the SCNC but your group has failed woefully to get EAGER minds such as ours educated on every move.

I'll be the FIRST to be happy to see the occupiers leave our territories. No flatteries!

I rest my case!


Worried Son Of Ako, LSE.

gerald

Let me start off by apologising to everyone for posting my response to Ashwell here.

Ashwell,
Thank you for giving me the right to respond though I wonder whether you would be able to read this as it has come a bit late. Now my answer to your question of why I thought it was out of character for you the respond to Owona the way you did. I have been impressed with your previous postings chastising people for being tribalistic in their arguments; it therefore was out of place reading what you had to say in response to Owana’s piece.

You start off by laying emphasis on the names and point out they are curious. Then you put a label on the name – now these are your words: “With your names, I do not ….But may be you will observe, learn and enlighten the OTHERS.”

I had a feeling you interpreted Owona’s piece the way you did because of the names. I know for sure he is not the only one who has come on this forum to highlight the fact that we spend more time throwing insults around than discussing ideas. Let us go back to his original posting and read it as follows: “I wonder what will happen if ideologies/policies/laws were defended through insults in the House of Commons or in Congress.”

Now you see this as insulting us and comparing this forum with Congress or House of Commons. I do not see him comparing the forum to either of the Houses; rather he is saying we should learn from these two Houses to discuss ideas, not insult each other.

Whether anyone has a right to point to our shortcomings is another thing altogether. He might have used shock tactics to get people understand that insults would not take us anywhere.

Did Owona pick on one sentence you made to accuse you of tribalism? I can read out three separate sentences in your response to Owona that are labelling to me. When you say he should observe learn, and enlighten the others, one wonders which “others” you are talking of. And you rightly say “May” is a conditional term. It gives you room to interpret something one way or the other – which ever way you choose to could be right.

Let me say this, there is a lot of harmless banter in the House of Commons. There is name calling but there is always a fine line between harmless banter and hurtful insults. When the late Tony Banks described William Hague as being a foetus, he was asked by the labour party to apologise - which he did.

You may appreciate what Owona wrote or understand it fully when you read the whole paragraph rather than dwelling on the lone sentence where he talks about Congress and the House of Commons.

You said nothing about SDF in your right up but considering that he made his comment under an SDF article, would you then see why he ties your comments to the SDF? If he does not have any business in this forum, would you suggest which forum he should be writing on. Who by the way is supposed to be commenting on this forum?


This forum gives us the opportunity to discuss, argue, learn and correct each other. Debating is learning; I do not see it as a matter of winning or loosing because even people from the winning side of a debate still learn a lot from the loosing side. Sometimes we tend to make a mountain out of a molehill.

Willie

Guys and gurls.
All these long and brilliant discussions you folks are pasting on this site wouldn't help much.
1. Few Cameroonians at home are interesting in politics today.

2. A very tiny minority of Cameroonians read newspapers. Cameroonians have never been encouraged to read. At 350 fr.cfa many would prefer to by their ngangie than throw on some papers

3. Most people spend their time watching Nigeria movies and foreign soaps like Venezuelan, Brazilian and Pilipino and forget about events happening in the country.

4. All these guys in the SDF you are writing about don’t access the internet to read all these stuff you are filling here. By the way even middle class families in Cameroon don’t have access to the internet. Those who do, would rather spend the time to create links, marriages, visa, etc etc. what you call “Bush falling”

5. Most of you have no idea of what the common man in Cameroon does apart from what you read here.

Some go as far as quoting from political journals, argue, carry out complex analyses and conclude. Yes these is all nice sweety stuff but to whom is all these destined to? The same you and me, we diasporas who have no saying in present Cameroon politics. In fact it is like you get info from some where, analyse and argue about it and some draw conclusions. All of these amongst yourselves and in the end nothing is changed where the event actually takes place and again and again and again…
My advice is to address the people directly and the only way now is to get to the battle field. A lot of people might not see with this but, you would come back to this at some point when your ideas would have run out.
Alternatively forget about this bull shit Cameroon politics and make a change in your own way.

Ask yourselves this question
Where is Cameroon politics heading to?

mukete

Muna declared yesterday on CRTV that the UPC,UNDP sjoin hands with him to help the CPDM and Biya to fight corruption.
Like father like son. Adding salt to the injury the father opened on the flesh of Cameroonians.

Roki of Shanghai

SDF Fru or SDF Ngwa, anyone u choose is in a real dilemma.Which opposition party do we recognise here? The turn out of the "Yaounde" convention beats my imagination.Meaning that there are really issues in the party that need to be put on the table.If so, is the best way to solve a problem running away from it?How can you run away from your shadow?The fact that the Biya government recognises SDF Fru makes it clear that SDF Ngwa is living illegally.Ben Muna,Ngwasiri and co "may" be sincere but mistaken.I would still advice that they seek for true peace in the party.Let everything be addressed on the table.That's how it's done.Biya says it loud and clear that he banned anything that took place in Yaounde in the name of the SDF.But this really keeps me wondering.Is the SDF really this close to CPDM?Is there something with exhibits someone is not telling us? Hmmmmmmm.The mighty are falling.

TALKTRUE

Who say wonders shall never end!!!!
One cuttigrass with two tails? ? ? ? ? ? ?
Where are we leading the SDF to?
Well Mr Benard Muna and Mr FRU NDI, please it is time two of you sit together and repair the damage now else u both wish the total collapse of the SDF.
Mr Benard Muna, you have two options: choose between reconciling with your brother FRU NDI to let cameroonian enjoy a peaceful transition or CONTINUE with Biya to be made a minister and plunge cameroonianians in a warground as you started in yaounded by declaring that come rain or sun u were going to do this and u did.

Ben Muna : "I Foresee Fru Ndi Creating His Own Party"


Fred VUBEM
[30/05/2006]

Ben Muna was elected chairman of the Ngwasiri faction of the SDF. He maintains that their convention wasn’t illegal.

Why hold a convention without authorisation from the administration?

We had an authorisation from the Sub-divisional Officer of Yaounde II. It is a lie if anybody should say we held a convention without authorisation…

Why then did you change the venue from the Yaounde conference centre where it was initially billed?

It is true he (the sub-divisional officer) also issued an order banning the convention from holding in the Yaounde conference centre. Now if the authorisation was not issued, how did he ban the convention. He knew that the convention was going to take place, that is why he banned it.

How do you intend to win the support of the masses especially in the North West which Fru Ndi controls?

If you came to the headquarters of the party in Yaounde, you would have seen that the party is not owned by Fru Ndi. Fru Ndi was paying people CFA35000 to attend his convention. His people kidnapped the president of the party in the Adamawa Province and forcefully took him to Bamenda. He escaped and came back to Yaounde. We had 400 delegates from the North, 150 from the East, 400 from the Centre province, 150 from the South, 140 from the West, 50 from Littoral, 40 from the North West and 8 from the South West. Our figures are not exaggerated. We can call names. We arranged for their transportation to Yaounde and know all of them.

What is your plan of action?

Politics is about people. If what we are doing is bad, then we will not succeed. If what we are doing is good, then the militants will flock back to us. I can already tell from the number of phone calls I have received. Even some people who were not with us before, have called to congratulate me and declare their support for my leadership.

You are still in court with the Fru Ndi faction. What will you do should the court declare Fru Ndi the legitimate leader of the SDF?

We shall cross that bridge when we get there.

Why not create a new party instead of fighting with Fru Ndi over the SDF?

I foresee the possibility of Fru Ndi who claims to be so popular to create his own party to show his popularity.



Charles Forkwa

That was my first question too!
Why does Muna not form his own party if he thinks he has convincing following? When his father did not agree wit the KNDP he went on and created a new party.
This continued rift underscores my prediction, a year or so ago on tis forum, that the SDF will soon become ineffective.
All the elements are present: In-fighting, Greed, Ego, Accdepting funding from the CPDM, Problem with accountability and transparency and most of all inability to agree on the intepretation of its own constitution.

Tayong(Copenhagen)

After all the bickering we come back home


On May 6th 1972, President Ahmadou Ahidjo informed citizens of the Federal Republic of Cameroon, during an address to the National Assembly, of his intention to dissolve the federation (which consisted of the federated territories of West Cameroon [Ex-British Southern Cameroons] and East Cameroon [ex-French Cameroun]) and replace it with a unitary state.

According to the President, the reason behind this move was to do away with the costly and cumbersome federal system of government which inhibited development, and to also move to a higher level of national consciousness by harmonizing the different political systems in the two federated systems.

A nationwide referendum was therefore scheduled on May 20th 1972. The question was put as thus to the electorate:

"Do you approve, with a view to consolidating National Unity and accelerating the economic, social and cultural development of the Nation, the draft Constitution....instituting a Republic, one and indivisible, to be styled the United Republic of Cameroon?"

Foncha masterminded the campaigns with Jua and Muna. The results we all know today.
Now we are at the stage of education. These are the questions we are putting forth to all anglophones today?

Will you want another referendum today on same issue?
Will you want a third option added to it?
Will u want us to fight if this third option is not added?
In your own opinion was this referendum legal in context?

Résolutions du Conseil SDF-Europe

Résolution sur les attaques meurtrières de Yaoundé

Le conseil SDF-Europe condamne fermement les attaques criminelles et terroristes perpétrées le 26 Mai 2006 contre les militants du Parti au siége provincial de Yaoundé ; particulièrement l’assassinat brutal et ignoble du camarade Grégoire DIBOULE (Secrétaire administratif du SDF pour la Province du Centre) et exige des autorités compétentes que toute la lumière soit faite sur ces événements tristes conformément à la loi.
En s’inclinant humblement devant la mémoire du camarade et martyr, SDF-Europe
- exprime ses condoléances les plus sincères à la famille du compatriote Grégoire DIBOULE et son entière solidarité à tous ceux qui ont été touchés par les attaques barbares et criminelles de Yaoundé.
- Se tient fermement aux côtés des camarades de Yaoundé qui ont démontré par leur courage que les valeurs de liberté et de démocratie partagées par la grande majorité du peuple camerounais ne pourront jamais être détruites ou mises à la solde d’une minorité de prébendiers des hosties du pouvoir RDPC.

- Condamne avec la plus grande énergie la lassitude complice des forces de l’ordre et des autorités Camerounaises qui bien qu’informées, ont laissé les criminels tuer et blesser de paisibles compatriotes rassemblés à Yaoundé pour faire échec à l’ignoble complot contre le peuple organisé par John Fru Ndi au profit du RDPC
- exige des autorités compétentes la condamnation de la manière la plus ferme et sévère de ces ennemis de la démocratie et de la liberté.
- Exige des responsables du SDF que tous les coupables et commanditaires de ces actes barbares soient poursuivis en justice et purement exclus du SDF, qui n’est pas un repaire de criminels et de terroristes.
- attribue la responsabilité morale et politique de ce meurtre à John FRU NDI, estime que c’est a lui que le crime profite, et que ses déclarations récentes, dans les journaux ou des lettres, et indiquant que « ceux qui travaillent avec Ngwassiri le font à leur risque et péril » font de lui le suspect numéro 1.

- demande à la justice camerounaise de faire toute la lumière sur cette tragédie, et d’interdire à tous les suspects de sortir du territoire camerounais jusqu'à ce que justice soit rendue.

- demande au Parlement camerounais de procéder immédiatement à la levée de l’immunité parlementaire du président du groupe parlementaire du SDF dont les témoins disent avoir aperçu le véhicule sur les lieux du crime.

- appelle la communauté internationale, particulièrement le Commonwealth, l’International Socialiste, le Parti Travailliste Britannique, le Parlement Européen et tous les amis du SDF, à désavouer Ni John Fru Ndi et d’éviter d’inviter désormais un assassin aux grands rendez-vous internationaux.

- demande aux Missions diplomatiques accréditées à Yaoundé de geler tous les visas attribués ou à attribuer à John Fru Ndi, car les soupçons évidents de crime qui pèsent lui et les risques de prison qu’il encourt font plus de lui un potentiel demandeur d’asile en Occident.

- appellent à une grande journée d’action qui sera marquée par des manifestations devant les ambassades du Cameroun en Europe et aux Etats-Unis pour protester contre le soutien du régime RDPC au clan Fru Ndi, et qui sera marquée par une grande veillée à la Mémoire du martyr.

Résolution sur le 7ème Congrès du SDF tenu à Yaoundé
Le Conseil SDF-Europe
- prend acte de la mise sur pied du nouveau Comité Exécutif National (NEC) par la 7ème Convention Nationale du SDF de Yaoundé « Congrès de la renaissance » et félicite le camarade Bernard MUNA et son équipe pour leur brillante élection.
- félicite particulièrement le Professeur Clément NGWASSIRI pour son courage et sa détermination ferme à libérer le SDF de ses ennemis les plus virulents.
- salue toutes les initiatives énergiques et militantes prises par la Cellule des Conseillers depuis le mois de février 2006 et réitère son respect aux Statuts du SDF.
- invite la nouvelle équipe à se mettre immédiatement au travail et à attaquer les nombreux chantiers pour redresser le parti et lui redonner sa place sur l’échiquier national et international. Pour cela, il est indispensable de se réconcilier avec soi-même et avec la base dans le cadre :
• D’un Forum d’éthique et de Réconciliation National
• D’une tournée nationale d’explication et de sensibilisation à la base
• D’une tournée Internationale (en Afrique et dans le reste du monde)
Les prochaines échéances électorales quand à elles devront être préparer sereinement pour garantir le succès du SDF. SDF-Europe se propose désormais de participer plus activement et efficacement à ce processus maintenant qu’une équipe d’hommes et de femmes patriotes et fidèles aux statuts a été mise sur pied.
La Diaspora SDF solidaire aux démarches de la Cellule des Conseillers et au Comité Exécutif National nouvellement élu à Yaoundé demande que des mesures rudes soient prises pour empêcher au régime BIYA de protéger les coupables et les commanditaires de ces crimes odieux et crapuleux. Les Provinces du Conseil SDF-Europe devront veiller à la clarification de la situation actuelle auprès des autorités de leur pays de résidence et des institutions de l’Union Européenne.
Pour le Conseil :

The elective conventions of the two factions of Cameroon’s prime opposition party, the Social Democratic Front, SDF has come and gone, leaving party militants and sympathizers in total confusion.
It had been hoped that these conventions were going to do two things. The Yaounde convention, handiwork of the Ngwasiri-Muna camp, was expected to chart the political roadmap for the SDF. It limited itself to giving positions to opportunists and megalomaniacs. Muna was only interested in becoming the Chairman of the SDF. Now that he has that mandate, is he going to create a political party or simply going to usurp and maintain the name SDF. Whatever the case, he will be expected to register his new political outfit.
SDF’s legal and legitimate convention held in Bamenda with thousands of militants and sympathizers in attendance. From Bamenda, those who are frustrated with Biya’s political fraud, waited to see the reconciliation of the main opposition party with itself and the objectives for which it was created.
Of everything the Bamenda convention did, the worst was to give absolute powers to Ni John Fru Ndi. Mr. Ndi will henceforth appoint a Secretary General, loyal and subservient to him. The remaining key bodies of the party, NEC, National Executive Committee and NAC, National Advisory Council will be answerable to John Fru Ndi. Even if he was an angel, Fru Ndi is but human and can easily stumble over the foibles of survival. The Social Darwinism that is now strong in the SDF will lead some to fight for survival of self against survival of party.
Objectively, the Bamenda and Yaounde conventions were a true test of who had the political clout. Benard Achu Muna emerged as a militant without a constituency. Nobody from his native Mbengwi joined him in his Yaounde Convention. The closest persons from the North West, who made it to Yaounde, were Madam Margaret Nyah who was beaten at the Batibo primaries by Mbah Ndam, and Babila Frederic who lost his bid to become organizing secretary in Limbe district primaries. The only SDF militants at the Yaounde Convention were the 55 members elected into the National executive Committee. All the rest were riff raffs bought to fill the illegal venue of the convention.
Fru Ndi emerged as the candidate with a national support base. He had militants from all ten provinces and from the provinces of France and the USA. All the 55 members of NEC/NAC were in Bamenda plus all the 21 Members of Parliament. They marched pass in a show of force to the awe of pundits who had written off Fru Ndi as a dying horse.
The Muna phenomenon
Thirteen years have passed since the All Anglophone Conference, where the late Honourable Solomon Tadeng Muna apologized to West Cameroonians for being misled into taking them into a Union with la Republique du Cameroon. Southern Cameroonians have always been embarrassed that it were their kith and kin who were betraying them.
Looking at the National Executive Committee list from Yaounde, only 6 of the 55 members are Anglophones. The SDF must accept that its constituency is Southern Cameroons or the North West and South West provinces. It is political deception for anybody to think that the constituency of the SDF is National. The national dimension is an aspiration, which is challenged by other undemocratic considerations typical to the Third World. Geostrategists who abound in Cameroon will tell Muna he is mistaken. The provenance and not the programmes.of a party leader is the rallying force.
Barrister Bernard Achu Muna, has vindicated all those who have been reluctant to consider the Muna siblings, in their own right, independent of their father’s excesses and docility. Solomon Tadeng Muna is on record, rightly or wrongly, as the one who sold West Cameroon to la Republique du Cameroun. Today, when Southern Cameroonians are at a crossroads, trying to regain their stolen identity, autonomy and territory and rename themselves, Bernard A. Muna is a frightful reminder that we Southern Cameroonians still have a divided house. Muna has, through his callousness, qualified himself as the worst enemy of the Southern Cameroonian. As to when Southern Cameroonians will start forgiving his family, they will have to work extra hard for it.
The kid sister, Ama Tutu Muna has begun some damage repair in Meta, even though mounted on the enemy bandwagon, yet such shortsightedness from the 66-year old, prove two things. He is either becoming senile or has never been sensitive to the plight of those around him. He can emulate his elder brother, Dr. Dan Muna, who is winning hearts as a generous and dedicated medical doctor, ready to better his tribe and country.
The alternative
If by destroying the opposition, the Biya regime believes they are going to rule forever, then they are mistaken. With a strong and credible opposition, it is possible to keep the millions of dissenting voices under control. The absence of such an authority just sets the floodgates of terrorism wide open. This tsunami will sweep away the limping institutions already in place and those who are preventing them from working. Such a situation is unpredictable. Pandemonium will be total and Cameroonians will find themselves in a situation worst than that of Liberia for they have persevered for too long even though their hearts are aching sorely.
It is now certain that, through its failure to dialogue with dissenting voices, none of them is qualified to negotiate on behalf of the millions who are disheartened with the system. Neither of the political arrangements will free Cameroonians. When it comes to the Southern Cameroon equation, the SCNC believes in the Force of Argument and not the Argument of force. Those who are looking for a quick fix have nowhere else to look, than to the scary dark forests of Cameroon for a strong gorrilla commandant to emerge and show them the way to rid this country of the destroyers.

 Fru Ben

I have read the SDF ramblings for a long time.I hesitated at first sight to make a comment. But recent developments now compel me to do so.I invite every one to look at the issues raised here below:
1) On May 26, 1990. The Social Democratic Front was born in an atmosphere which all have agreed was characterized by, hostility, Tension and Polical assasination of 6 non-executive members/sympathisers of the SDF Cause.
2) On May 26,2006. Sixteen clear years after another SDF (Authentic) is born in a similar hostile and tense atmosphere that left one Executive member of the New SDF(Authentic) Dead.
From the above, I ask the following Questions:
a) Who assasinated the Bamenda 6?
b) Who assasinate the Yaounde 1?
I dare To ask the last Question;
i) Why is it that, each time we have a quest for genuine change in Cameroon we must loss a life (lives)?

This Suggest that if Fru Ndi had command of a military like his older brother Paul Biya does, then we would have had carnage in Yaounde last week end.
I rest my case.

Na Buea I commot,
But I dey for Bush Now.

I am in Europe and a member of SDF in Belgium. I will like to know where you got the memo you are claiming to be 'Résolutions du Conseil SDF-Europe' for there is nothing like that here. Make sure you are honest for I am part of the Exco here in Belgium.If you have done it on behave of SDF Europe, please state it that way.

Instead of using his Ntarikon Taliban Militia to force president Paul Biya out of power, Ni John Fru Ndi is using it to intimidate those who fight to replace Biya. It is a pity!

There is no more lie in the realities and misunderstanding plaguing the party.I am always free where I love and frank where I hate in adversity though I have been modest in my judgement and calculations in the recent past of what will befall the SDF party.What way forward???

We never expected this misfortune to occur but when events started reaching our forum about the dismissal of several SDF strong hold members, we had warned that this was not a good move by Fru.He even went as far as attacking Ngwasiri with his body guards.I don't see this as a good news to militants who are in the SDF party for a free and fair political atmosphere.Little doubt this situation amongst others has been the remote cause of this present delemma and division.We are sorry but it sounds a despondent note to any one who was more of supporting names than policies....

Cameroon. One Nation no future. The Exodus continues. We Cameroonians(Africans) all have the same Problems...getting out of misery. The Country is in a mess and it seems as if the worst is still to come. CPDM, SDF etc etc we have to combat this together. Get some stability, build up a foundation before going on with this multiparty ping-pong.
One Party-one Goal-One fight.

Charles F, Brussels

Dear Southern Cameroonians, it is high time we realise that the SDF is moving to the grave. We cannot fight the policies of the ruling party CPDM in fractions.

I advised all in the SDF to pack their bags and join in the struggle of the SCNC. SDF has failed in their assignment as leaders have started selling out the course of the fight of the people.

The Hour of Reckoning (I)

Na only start we start for cry so. We go cry pass so. Make man no run.

We wanted to fix this thing here in a no-winner-no-loser manner. You people said praise-singing is the magic potion. Let's see how far it goes.

Even as they only type to post on this forum, I can hear their voices wailing, I can see their eyes red with over weeping, i can see their noses running. They're frustrated.

Some are on leave. Please return. Your comrades need you because the terrain is now increasingly hostile. Others are now quarrelling among themselves.

What’s happening between Rexon and Tayong? Where is Washow? Now they are coming up with new names. But their voices remain the same. We know them.

They write one nonsense stuff and come back with a new name praising their own very stuff as the best thesis for PhD in LSE. They'll get all the more confused. Wetin wona don see?

We told them here. We begged, we looked stupid. We looked like weaklings, we looked ridiculous for pleading. They felt strong, invincible. Ni John this, Ni John that, Ni John everything, Ni John forever... Today they're crying. Let's see how long forever takes.

The fact that I attacked both sides when it was necessary and pampered both sides when it was necessary, was to show you, praise-singers, that in politics there is no devil and no angel, only evil (shameful) and good (noble) acts.

I still don't think Ni John is evil. He's simply been misled by a feyma, lawyer, parliamentarian. We have a catalogue of things to show.

I took a neutral position to give each side a chance to come to the table. They were disposed to come to the table - I have firsthand information to that effect. They had seen danger.

In fact, some of Ni John's closest associates who knew san-san was threatening to enter their garri if there wasn't common ground, were hard at work towards a compromise.

But our invincible idols read our praises and their ego swelled up all the more. They then shunned dialogue. We'll be coming back on that.

We proposed Cardinal Tumi here, you people said no. A magic wand Memo would do. We'll come back to that.

When things had hit rock bottom, when Yaounde and Bamenda were certain to hold and both sides had reached the point of no return, they started calling for Cardinal Tumi to come to their convention.

They were reading us and following our advice but you deceived them. Would Tumi's presence on one side (Bamenda) in one day have solved the problem?

Tumi knew the answer. He had been waiting for them to come for dialogue. They didn't. He knew they wanted to use him to give legitimacy to their convention. He refused to go. He knows who is formentinmg trouble and knows who can listen to good advice.

Feymen. After deceiving Ni John, they wanted to rope in the Cardinal too. He jumped their rope. All clap for the Cardinal's wisdom.

Ben Muna :

* "I Foresee Fru Ndi Creating His Own Party"

* Politics is about people. If what we are doing is bad, then we will not succeed.

* If what we are doing is good, then the militants will flock back to us.

* Even some people who were not with us before, have called to congratulate me and declare their support for my leadership.


Fred VUBEM (Eden Newspaper)
[30/05/2006]

Ben Muna was elected chairman of the Ngwasiri faction of the SDF. He maintains that their convention wasn’t illegal.

Qtn: Why hold a convention without authorisation from the administration?

Ans: We had an authorisation from the Sub-divisional Officer of Yaounde II. It is a lie if anybody should say we held a convention without authorisation…

Qtn: Why then did you change the venue from the Yaounde conference centre where it was initially billed?

Ans: It is true he (the sub-divisional officer) also issued an order banning the convention from holding in the Yaounde conference centre. Now if the authorisation was not issued, how did he ban the convention. He knew that the convention was going to take place, that is why he banned it.

Qtn: How do you intend to win the support of the masses especially in the North West which Fru Ndi controls?

Ans: If you came to the headquarters of the party in Yaounde, you would have seen that the party is not owned by Fru Ndi. Fru Ndi was paying people CFA35000 to attend his convention. His people kidnapped the president of the party in the Adamawa Province and forcefully took him to Bamenda. He escaped and came back to Yaounde. We had 400 delegates from the North, 150 from the East, 400 from the Centre province, 150 from the South, 140 from the West, 50 from Littoral, 40 from the North West and 8 from the South West. Our figures are not exaggerated. We can call names. We arranged for their transportation to Yaounde and know all of them.

Qtn: What is your plan of action?

Ans: Politics is about people. If what we are doing is bad, then we will not succeed. If what we are doing is good, then the militants will flock back to us. I can already tell from the number of phone calls I have received. Even some people who were not with us before, have called to congratulate me and declare their support for my leadership.

Qtn: You are still in court with the Fru Ndi faction. What will you do should the court declare Fru Ndi the legitimate leader of the SDF?

Ans: We shall cross that bridge when we get there.

Qtn: Why not create a new party instead of fighting with Fru Ndi over the SDF?

Ans: I foresee the possibility of Fru Ndi who claims to be so popular to create his own party to show his popularity.

The Hour of Reckoning (II)

Those who know conflict resolution (I know nothing about it, but some of you POLITICAL SCIENTISTS here do) will attest to the fact that you don't resolve conflicts by giving undue advantage to one party over another.

We did all we could to put the warring parties at par, knowing that one side had been unduly stigmatised because of an early pro-democracy euphoria that we now see was unmerited political capital for Ni John whom, time has proven, has wasted it.

Our intention was simple: to caution Ngwasiri-Muna against holding the Yaounde convention, but we knew that that could only be possible if the determined ploy by Mbah Ndam and co to exclude Muna and others from running for office was reconsidered.

Mbah Ndam and co stuck to his guns. They who shot the door against others and dug their feet into the ground to keep others out, should be held to answer for the fate of the party today.

Or would anyone expect a child denied his birthright to clap for his tormentor? No he fights back. In any legitimate way necessary.

You've read me here in and out, and you know when i want to lash I hold the whip FIRM. I don't mince words. When I want to fondle you'd fall asleep within a second of my fingers touching you.

I am a great admirer of Ni John. But I am a free thinker and I feel free to tell him his truths. I can sing praises to Ni John more than you. But I won't be a prisoner of admiration.

Ni John's qualities are only as good as they could move the SDF forward. They haven't. They instead moved he and Mbah Ndam forward, to the detriment of the people. He let himself be misled by a feyman. I can't stand that.

Ni John became a Number 9 who instead dribbled his own defence and scored against his side. Mbah Ndam was crossing the balls from the Number 7 position. We'll come back to that.

By being neutral didn't mean i didn't know the truth or the formentor of trouble. I know the truth and I'll keep vexing you with it on this forum - bitter truth.

Sorry friends if that makes you angry and sends you losing your temper and saying things - just anything to get the fire out of you.

The race is not for the swift, not for the mighty but for the resistant. You'll have to do with my bitter truths for a long time on this forum or maybe can you please try another forum. Why not create one? Aren't there any computer engineers among you? What are you guys even studying abroad? It doesn't show.

Some of you thought The Post had opened a forum for a few ill-informed fellows to spend time romancing each other with lies, half-truths and fiction about Ni John - , outdated stuff from the early 1990s when euphoria blinded everyone to the truth.

Sorry, time's out for pampering. Now is time for plain truth. Welcome to the debate. And please continue singing love songs for Ni John. He loves them and needs them now more than ever before, to uplift his spirit seeing where Mbah Ndam has landed him.

And you know more trouble is ahead. Diboule is eyeing them.

Why are you still crying? The Yaounde meeting appointed your pay master Ben Muna as chairman. Why are you still talking about Fru Ndi? Is it because of the "I Love Fru Ndi" that is making you to be that worried about him or what? I thought your Yaoundé meeting finally took two hours to appoint Ben Muna and Zambou as chairman and SG? Why are you still beating about the bush? No one was interested about your cunning moves. We are contented with Fru Ndi and the Bamenda Convention. Follow you band wagon and you guys should continue to run your lying mouths in Yaoundé with Ben Muna and Ngwasiri.

Klemanceau,

Leave this man alone.Have you forgotten he is the self proclaimed chief mourner of the forum? We are not in a position to say anything to him.All he has been doing of late is shouting at the top of his voice about the memo as if he can raise any idea constructive to take Cameroon forward.BenB, instead of mourning for us can you concentrate on ideas which will help Muna Iscariot succeed in his mission of doom? We do not care for the end will always justify the means.Choosing Muna or the cpdm is not a crime for that is your right.That too is democracy.We are all in the forum.It is often said that those who love liberty love the people why those love power love themselves.Does Muna love power or liberty? Guess for yourself. Do we call the Yaounde drama a convention? That to me was a sham of a show and history will prove me rightly or wrongly on this forum.Can someone tell me why the Bamenda convention was jamed full by former dissidents who had left the sdf and created their own parties? The Yaounde drama was just history repeating itself because people refuse to learn from it.Here Muna Iscariot announcing they paid transportation for delegates from the North West and the West to attend their convention.What do we call this? Corruption? BenB, when you would have presented the resolutions and your contributions to the Yaounde convention we would show to the forum the magic of the memo.Stop behaving like a kid.Are you also in the club of the insane that have invaded the forum of late? Many thought Mukete was alone.As a twin brother you have superceeded expectations.Mourning every dead and castigating even the innocent.As chief mourner do not forget your role on the forum-mourning the corrupt.

Watesih

BenF,
You have really smeared yourself with feaces and you are now carrying a heavy head.You started up by being very demagogic,
'I love Fru Ndi",after you went ahead to call on Fru Ndi to storm the Yaounde convention.Later ,you sang the name of Cardinal Tumi,to come in and put out the fire.Today ,you are telling people that the Cardinal was wise enough not to have heeded to your calls.
Two days ago ,you jumped in with your pidginistic sophistery and proclaimed to the world that Mbah ndams car was spotted at the SDF party house when thugs attacked there.Don`t think that you have to do with blind people ,you are dealing with millions of Cameroonians and your bareface propaganda and lies are taken note of.The Mercedes car that was found on the scene of the crime was that of Orlando Monju,SDF Ekounou ward leader ,immatriculated CE2461,
and it was badly damage.
All these lies telling are not going to help you.You cannot sell your intergrity cheaply like this.There are guys like Fritzane and Vally who will argue on a particular point and stand their grounds.They have been repeating this on daily bases,but i have not seen them embrace lies ,in order to pass for what they are not.
We as Cameroonians who have been writing here for a long,thought we could make our voices heard on the numerous problems bedevelling the SDf.This is how the idea of the Memo was born.Our Memo was a series of proposals ,as to our view of how things should be done in the SDF.It does not suffice to tell lies here and pay lip service ,but unable to share your thoughts with others.Your treating of the Memo now as a play thing shows the divisive entity you`ve always been here.This is not surprising to Cameroonians ,because at one point here you championed the course of reconciliation,but people were taken aback when you called on FRu Ndi to storm Ngwasiri`s convention.
Get it clear ,that our Memo was not a political gamble to seek for fame or position ourselves,but proposals from cameroonians far-flung around the world.You even saw how we were looking for somebody here on-line to convey them to the Convention.As far as you keep flipflopping here and not being able to come up with something like this one day ,then your song will only be for the winds.You started celebrating Muna and his dissident ideas here a long time before the convention,and it is no doubt you are so estatic about the turn of events now.But the SDF has a logo,and a letter head,which your master Muna was not given by those he claimed elected him.Any tampering with this will be infringing on the intellectual property rights of the number one opposition political party in Cameroon.
We can have solace with the fact that we ay least put our thoughts in written form,but you are unable to make a convincing argument on this forum without entangling yourself in a tug of war with yourself.Sir,don`t pretend to be what you are not!

SAD MAY 26TH

“A lie cannot live”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Most of us have been taken unaware by the sudden turn of events. I swear by your righteousness that even for those proponents of split in the SDF, a majority would never have imagined events will take this apoplexy. A priori reasoning told us, it was nothing short of a menace from those seemingly in political wilderness, as they looked more like impostors.
It turned to be a sad day for all sympathizers for the opposition in general and Anglophone Cameroonians in particular. Even diehards of the SCNC had their minds flirt with the leading opposition at sober moments. The most dreaded scenario has occurred.
As much as I know Cameroonians, we have learned not to count our eggs before they are been hatched. We shall try not to be prophets of doom for SDF center or north. We will wait to see how much confusion we will be able to bear or how many mountains the factions can move.
Like Dr. Martin Luther says; a lie cannot live, so too will I re-echo the same. Sometimes ago on this forum I intimated that we have lots of surprises in stock, I guess I am proven right. If you will dwell on the fact that the Muna faction was helped in creation by the sometimes `big-titled` press reports, you will fail to see how much benefit or damage they will bring to our lives and history as Anglophones.
Was this an act of revenge and or frustration by the Ngwasiri-Muna couple or some very vehement political belief?...Time alone will tell us, especially observers shouldn`t get too impatient.

Before I take off my fingers, there are a few worries that I would like only the inspired to help get me enlightened.
Dr. Martin Luther still holds:

“Everything that we see, is a shadow cast by that which we do not see”

I beckon your indulgence not to wait too long in divulging the unseen in this imbroglio.
 Is Muna an instrument for Biya`s revenge on Fru Ndi, for all the sleepless nights the latter gave him during the ghost town campaigns and calls for a national conference?
 Do you feel the Yaounde SDF has legitimate political convictions that can move the party to successes or they are adventurers who do not care about what could happen next.
 Should the government open doors to the new formation, would it be another plot by Biya or his French mentors and Godfathers to keep Anglophone Cameroon in perpetual confusion or just leaving things happen like at the UPC?
 I sum up all the questions in this: Who does this conceived split profit?
1. The Biya regime: do they rejoice at this divide,are they against it or it`s none of their business?
2. Muna-Ngwasiri: Is it the accomplishment of a well planned political fight for freedom and democracy or some kind of ‘we shall not be put to shame or remain subordinates to a leader that we can do better?
Dear all I trust you will most certainly throw some light on the nonetheless meaningful rhetoric I placed above.

Cheers!

remember brother mal FORBI and those in america had stop helping the sdf until last week when the true sdf emerge.he is very happy and has promise to bounce back for the true sdf.this is true information because he is my business partner.
some one ask me to say if the cardinal is for the true sdf.
right tayong remember some here are not kid who just say thing without facts.
remember he refused to take part in the bamenda convention after being invited many times ask why?cos he is an honest man and knows that fru ndi is a cheat.he said he is for the true sdf and not for propaganda.
we are on.shame to the jealouse ones for they will never be born in great family like the muna family
even biya wanted to be born there.great people from first to the last
how i wish i was born there.

Mbu.B
The debate you are throwing here has nothing to do with iinspiration.It all has to do with the people long suffering and aspirations.We are inherently part of the explosive political situation in our country and one doesn`t need to be an astrologist to read the writings on the wall.
Before i delve into pertinent issues,permit me make a retrospection on some of the issues Muna,one of the Legal luminaries Cameroon has got raised in his Interview.When quized on the raison d`etre of organising an outlawed convention,he shot back,'If the authorisation was not issued how did he ban the convention.He knew that the convention was going to take place ,that is why he banned it".The big question to Muna now is ,accepting here that he banned it how does he expect Cameroonians to believe in something that was born out of illegality.When asked how he intends to win the support of the masses especially in the Northwest which Fru Ndi controls,he starts enumerating the number of delegates who attended his imaginary convention.If people of the North /South axis in Cameroon,the Northerners and people of the Centre Province readily responded to Muna`s call,what does this imply?He tells us the North had 400 delegates ,the Centre 400,but that the Northwest had 40 and the southwest 8.Do cameroonians new telescopes to read through this treachery,granted that Muna has always forcefully put it across that his constituency is in Yaounde and not in Mbengwi the seat of his ancestors.When asked about his plan of action,he hadn`t non
and started saying politics is about people.Of course Cameroonians are aware that politics is about people ,but how are you going to change the lot of this people ,is the question the once hard-talking campaign Manager of the SDf could not answer.He seems to be more excited about the phone calls coming in from fellow
dissidents.He is posed the question why he cannot create a new party,he insteads start talking about Fru Ndi`s popularity and how Fru Ndi should be the one to do so,knowing fully well that he is the one joining the Marquis and not Fru Ndi.
Mbu.B ,the first set of questions you posed are a type of answer to the second set.Cameroonians are not reading the present dispensation with rose-coloured glasses that will make them unable to know the truth.The answer to the first question is that Muna is naturally and fittingly the
lightning rod at the disposition of the French and their pimps in Yaounde to continuously enslave the Cameroonian people.
You would recall that when Fru Ndi stood up to Biya and was confined under House Arrest,
this slippery maggot of a Muna,went about his activities and even programmed an audience with Joseph Owona in Yaounde.People
like Samuel Eboua,Ekindi have been weeped in public by the forces of disorder ,until they almost forgot their names and looked like frightened school boys,but Muna ,in spite all the gibberish he poured on the Biya regime has never been intercepted anywhere.It is therefore no surprise that his fictitious highest number of Delegates should come from the two provinces that are responsible for the plight we find ourselves in.
Mbu.B,your guess will be as good as mine
regarding the legitimate political convictions of the Yaounde Convention.If Muna had joined the Cpdm government ouvertly,the betrayal would have been unprecedented.It would have shown him as somebody without a following,who has just been handpicked.But ,becoming the Chairman ,even if it meant crushing the militants on his way,as we saw with the death of Diboule,he now erroneousely have the impression that there is enough backing to go after his long cherished post of Justice Minister.It is therefore not surprising when he immediately starts telling the Cpdm that they will work hand in glove to bring about the long awaited change in Cameroon.
Mbu.B ,i told you your questions have an affirmative undertone.By opening the doors to the new formation,will not be another plot by Biya and the French.It is the continuation of the subjugation that has been and is still in store for us.You cannot isolate the UPC case from this one.
You should rather put all the two situation under a general picture of annihilation,
wiping out the History of a people,and enslaving them forever.
Mbu.B,of course the authorities in Yaounde only have their teeth to laugh,because they have been brought closer to the SDf they even used guns to quell to no avail.Intimidation has not worked for 16
years and anybody who can bring the SDF to their slaughter house will laugh last.This is the gist i have for the moment.If my ideas a bad throw them away,but don`t throw me away,because we should live to try another day.

Ben B.,

I am not that type who will attempts to write with a different identity. I am interested in my own opinions and will be proud to identify with it. For the past periods, i have been moving towards a new direction in life on a personal basis, thus, did not have the time to engage in one or two frolics like the SDF saga.

So to say, i cannot hide behind another identity.

Can you please forward any comment here that you feel has been pasted by me with another identity?

SDF Living Martyrs
We lied – why haven’t they joined Biya? (I)

There are those who lost their lives standing up for freedom, supporting the SDF like the pioneer six of the first bloody 26th May (1990) and the landmark Diboule of the second bloody 26th May (2006).

In between, there have been other unsung martyrs. Some of them were our own very friends felled at our feet. We wept with their blood in our hands, trying to rescue them.

But here we are not going to be talking about how their spirits cry out of their graves against the abuse of their blood by those who turned the party they died for into a business centre; a self-fulfilling, self-enriching bargaining platform.

Here we are talking about living martyrs, people who gave all for the struggle – ruined their lives, their careers, their families but were politically “massacred” by enemies of the revolution who sneaked in without notice and stole the revolution, derailing it from its original ideals and values.

We are talking here about those who were hushed down, 8.2ed, victimized because they dared to remind militants – the backbone of the SDF - that their leaders were misleading them into a long march to nowhere; a long march to their doom.

Those people were disgraced, called names, labelled as agents of France and Biya and nearly lynched by misled masses. Today, a full decade and more since they were said to be playing into the hands of France and Biya, they haven’t joined Biya.

We are not asking ourselves why. We only continue to be misled when our thieving leaders say so. We don't examine our thoughts. For how long shall we be fools - led by their nose?

Our living martyrs have remained civil society critics or taken a distance from politics. They have done everything except join the Biya regime, the false allegation for which they were nearly lynched. They haven't joined Biya. Are they waiting to do so in their graves? Can't we ask ourselves questions? Are we cursed with fanaticism, my friends?

Siga Asanga and Samuel Tchwenko were living martyrs until they died. Still around, we have Mahamat Souleymane, Kandoum Basile, Ben Muna, Tazoacha Asonganyi, Ndiva Kofele Kale, Andrew Akonte, Orlando Monju et al… You can extend the list as best you know. They are living martyrs.

Like the dog we want to hang, we gave them a bad name. They have been watching from the fringes, waiting to see us go it alone.

Now that things have crystallised and everyone can see that we lied against them; now that everyone can see that we bedevilled them because we wanted to dine with Biya and feared their prying eyes, we owe those Cameroonians an honourable remembrance and an apology. We’ll do that here. We have to.

Just like the spirits of the dead martyrs haunt us from their graves and cast ill-luck at all our endeavours, so too the angry thoughts of our living martyrs stand in the way of the progress of our party and will continue to haunt us until we make peace with them.

Momo,
Remember that we are all Cameroonians & we are inform on all that is happening in Cameroon. What makes you think that Cardinal TUMI not being in B'da was for your hide-and-seek palavar in the name of a convention?

Knowing fully well that most Cameroonians especially the diasporans get inform via The Post, you guys are hell-bent on misinforming them. We are here & we will keep telling the truth. SDF is not divided as you guys are claiming. The hide-and-seek event on May 26 in Yaounde was not an SDF convention. Rather, it was an event to satisfy Ben MUNA long term dream of being called "chairman". It is not a bad thing to be called "chairman", but "chairman" of what? Certainly not the SDF which millions of Cameroonians are militants and sympathisers!

If politics is a dirty game, then, it is because the likes of Ben MUNA are in it. Ni Ben (as he would like us to call him) resigned from the SDF on the eve of an important election with the impression that we were going to be badly defeated. To his greatest dismay, we did beyond his expection.

Not too long ago, it was being wispered that BIYA is willing to quit & the ONLY viable alternative is the SDF. Within the BETI orligachy, they needed someone to weaken the SDF so that the CPDM can still remain in power. This BETI orligachy sought advice and were directed to a certain Southern Cameroonian who then proposed Ben MUNA to do the trick. This is the beginning of of the so-called SDF crisis.

I'll be back.

Teribobs

Watesih, Stop calling SDF number one opposition party. It used to be not now. The authentic SDF might help us regain that position.
Momo, Watesih is not Fon Lawrence. His level is evident. Watesih is most probably a grade 3 teacher who made use of his 'goddass' and became an SDF(the dead faction) parliamentary secretary. He has every reason to defend his garri. Fon Lawrence is still to convince me that he is not an elderly student out there in Germany who benefitted from JFN's largesse and found himself out there. Atangha and Samleyin(the other dullards) have eclipsed from the scene. I am still trying to figure out why Klemenceau is still a blind disciple.

Rene Murena

I do not think the more power bestowed upon the chairman, the better the SDF becomes. Given that the crisis in the party erupted from conflict of obligations and allegations of dictatorship and the absence or banning of dissent, the SDF should have cut down some of the powers on the Chairman, and Secretary General and give it to a third authority. The more there is power sharing, the less the propulsion of individualistic ideas and the more party hierarchies concert.

The SDF has come a long way but has grown less mature as the days go by. Unfortunately, it has not learnt from the experience of other governments. With respect to allegations of bribery and corruption at high levels within the party, the party should have equally elected its own anti-corruption unit to fight corruption so that rumors of fraud and bribery would be critically looked into.

Some party officials state that these powers given to the party chairman will ensure a smooth running of the party. One question that comes to mind is, "What are the party structures that ensure checks and balances on the chairman?"

In addition, some democratic values were not upheld at the recent convention. The SDF has always called for a meaningful debate at all governmental levels, in parliament etc, but in the adoption of its recent constitution (Ni John’s Faction), one did not find any debate to ensure that all decisions adopted were closely examined. The post reports that it took Mbah Ndam half an hour to persuade the delegates. Is half an hour sufficient time to convince all the delegates if some did not feel intimidated? Unfortunately, all party officials who were strongly opposed to these excessive powers had to break away or were dismissed as a result of the intolerance that exists within the party.

Moreover, I am strongly opposed to the recent move that allows for the appointment of the Secretary General than electing him solely for the fact that,” When a new SG is elected, he works well for a while and later on tends to assume the role of the chairman." If this is the case, then why not reduce the term of office of the SG?
The SG could be elected by delegates within their localities and the results sent to the central district every half the period of the current term while the Chairman is elected at the convention if financial constraints do not permit the holding of many conventions.

No human being is perfect and when individuals begin to assume such great powers, it indirectly stifles dissent within the party as party members become intimidated thus putting a limit to new ideas. Also, the notion that this enables the chairman practice how to rule as a president is the most ridiculous ever. Is the chairman contentment to becoming "Like a president for the party" Worst still, what body can reject persons appointed by the chairman without fear of compromising its position towards dismissal.

It is time for the SDF to come up with a clear cut democratic agenda that satisfies the test of the 21st Century. The 21st century should be a period where everyone is capable of assuming leadership. A period where everyone leads and where there are no inferiors or superiors. It should be a time for collective leadership.

Atangha

Teribobs,
I am here & even stronger than before! Schroll up & read from me, please.

That said, I know Ni Ben a million times more than you. He's not an opposition! He wants to use the SDF as a stepping stone to become Minister of Justice. Unfortunately he failed as he's been doing in the past.

Teribobs, go tell Ni Ben to form his political party & launch it in Ngyen-mbo. By doing that he may repair the negative image the people of 'his constituency' have about them, especially his person. Don't they say charity begins at home???

I'll be back.

Reading through the policy speech of Fru Ndi, Chairman of SDF(Bamenda faction), this statement caught my attention.

"Fru Ndi disclosed that during the period 2001 to 2006, the SDF received "some funds from the government to manage the party and for various national and council elections. "These subventions though helpful, have equally been the cause of our financial problems."

Sincerely I never expected this especially after reading so much on this forum for months now.

The questions I ask now are these
-could those "allegations"of financial and late nite dealings with the CPDM be TRUE"
-How much therefore could the governemnt have been given and to WHO?
-What therefore was those monies used for?
-Are these subventions given to all the more than 150 parties in Cameroon?

Surely by now these are belated questions, but the answers to why the "child was divided" will soon in days, weeks or months ahead be made clear to us all.

The CAUSE as to WHY the child was divided is equally as important as WHO divided the child. So why we look at the "WHO" aspect why should also Look at the CAUSE. For all you may come to know, the CAUSE might even be the culprit, but until then, the we wait for time to tell

Klemenceau

Teribobs

Don't worry much about me. With time you will know why I have decided to remain a "blind" supporter of Fru Ndi. Don't you think that I am also fighting to be sponsored by Fru Ndi as you purport he has done for Fon Lawrence?
Would you please wait for your master BenB to write and you confirm? Or better still don't you realize that you are wasting your time addressing Fru Ndi's "blind" supporters? I would advice you to meet your new found chairman Ben Muna and you guys should see how you would switch to the CPDM. Mind is to see that the SDF under Fru Ndi remains the opposition party it used to be before Ngwasiri, Ben Muna and co brought in confusion.
Your master BenB (maybe the new version of Ben Muna) is still fighting tooth and nail to uphold your chairman's image through the internet. Maybe you can try to advice him BenB. He should know that Cameroonians are not fools. You guys should tell Ben Muna that Cameroonians will run behind him to have their own share of the money and then abandon him. I know you can't have this courage to tell him else you might not be paid for the job you are doing here.
Muna is so childish to say that an SDF ward leader or so was forced by some people to Bamenda. To him some people carried this man from the North if not mistaken to Bamenda. Even a five year old child wouldn't say such a thing.

Watesih

Momo,
Welcome back from your misadventure.You still seem to be in the stupour you found yourself in in Cameroon.I told you that it is very difficult for somebody who can hardly tap on a keyboard to start emulating what others are doing.I
am still sampling many ways on how to wipe the tears on your cheeks .You know you came here wailing that Mukete had pushed you into something you could not comprehend,until Agbormbai nearly pulled off your ears to have let the cat out of the bag.I`m thinking of writing a cheque for you,and may be after you will calm down and be able to know that the no nonesense
Fon Lawrence is not the same person as me.I
am even surprised that the blind terrorist Terribobs ,who went on his knees begging for Fon Lawrence`s telephone number to be given to him,can know that Fon Lawrence and i are not the same person.
Teribobs does not want me to call the SDF the number one political party in Cameroon and starts procrastinating that what his congregation of factional leaders and French sponsored segregationists came together in a backyard to put together might help you people to be heard and seen.
Teribobs,you people are cold blooded murdered!After bringing about the death of Djiboule,your masters could not even shy away from that spot.Africans always respect the dead,but this is the first time i see people sell someone like Djiboule and still have the guts to continue holding terrorist
activities where he was murdered.Ben Muna
and zamboue planned terroreist acts all together with Djiboule,but they had their plans and sold him off.Or else how do you explain the fact that after being together all along ,the two putchists Muna and zamboue stole away and allowed Djiboule to be murdered.
If your party is called authentic SDF,there would have been papers deposited at the ministry of Territorial Administration,legalising the activities of this movement and then giving the leeway for it to organise public manifestations. But this was not the case.They keep cosying up to the name SDf and start calling themselves chairmen.Haha!This is somebody who headed the Cameroon Bar Association.He has brought all the work he did there to nought,because his colleagues in the legal field are ashamed of this type of idiocy.
When the Assistant SDO for Yaounde 11 first banned their manifestation,they went round making a mockery of Mbah Ndam,for having secured the written authorisation from the D.O banning the farce.But today Muna turns round and tells us that the D.O banned their convention because he had given them an authorisation.Granted that he had given them an authorisation and later decides to ban it ,judging that it is a meeting point of terrorits,why can a lawyer like Muna not respect the institutions of the Republic?When the courst stopped stopped both NEC and NAC from carrying out whatsoever,the SDF went the legal way,and got a stay of execution,and its convention was only held after the courts had postponed the hearings.
When somebody like Muna has this disregard for the Laws of the land,why should he be calling on the same authorities to investigate and punish those who murdered Djiboule.We all know Djiboule was murdered because Muna trampled the Laws and went ahead to assemble people!
Teribobs,Momo,all of you these blind bards on this forum,should now see how another so called intellectual has been humbled by events,because he wants to offset
the laws of nature.Every intellectual in the SDF,especially the bad breed ,has a peculiar way of smiring himself in disrepute .
Teribobs ,Momo,i don`t need extra time to write here.The two of you,Mukete in particular,Vally ,Fritzane will take two weeks to come up with a write up.All what i post here is written during my lunch or super breaks,and done in at most 30 minutes.
So don`t keep pretending that i`m giving you sleepless nights, because i`m idle.I don`t need to write things on pieces of papers and start tapping on one key for a century as Momo does.When ideas are part of you and you don`t have to distort facts,there`s no way you will wrack your brains for a century coming up with little writeups.

Ashwell Molaba

Here we go again. Interesting news from the Post and everyone says what they feel like. After all is said and done, I will repeat what I wrote more than a month ago.

THE SDF WILL SPLIT UP.

By the way Gerald, I honestly couldn't understand your response above. But I do agree with you on the essence of debate. Some of your inferences on what I said are inconsistence but I will continue the debate with you elsewhere.

Fon Lawrence

Klemencean,
Teribobs is a boy without his own conviction. If there is anyone on this forum who is found most wanting,it is Teribobs.

When he first surfaced here,he was comparing the SDF with the CPDM and saying that he will prefer the Devil(CPDM) that he knows better. But when he saw that nobody was talking openly in support of the CPDM on this forum,he immediately switched to take cover on the pretext of supporting Ngwasiri´s camp.Deep in him as his other cohorts,they know that if a faction emerge,it will enervate the SDF to the advantage of the CPDM.Indeed, their intention is not to support Ben Muna.They belong somewhere else.

If Teribobs discloses his identity and one goes into details,it will be obvious that at least one of the parents is a member of the CPDM.
I have been on this forum for sometime and I know their intentions,remember when we exposed Micheal who was pretending;whose grandfather was the ex.SDO of Kongi (If the name is not correct Watesih will correct me) and whose father is a member of the CPDM,he finally disappeared.
In that their group,the only person that I don´t yet know why he is so bitter about Fru Ndi and whom I believe has nothing to do with the CPDM is Vally of England.The rest,either they are fighting for the CPDM or there are close relatives of Ngwasiri,e.g Momo who Ngwasiri is the uncle.

Tita Mofaw

Hey Fon Lawrence!
You make me want to laugh out my lungs.
So you have been digging the "true identity" of folks here.

Some of them seems to be related to the cpdm through the bags of rice and bones of death cows/pigs that they receive during elections.

This is something that they should be grateful to the opposition for(eventhough the goodies is coming form the cpdm) because without a viable opposition the cpdm would not waste any franc to buy the votes of hungry people like them.They will just stay in power forever and do what they like without letting anything trickle down to the hungry hand clappers and senders of motions of support.

If you should dig even further lawrence you would realise that the parents of some of the guys you have mentioned above are professional senders of motions of support each time that paul biya does something:

when paul biya says there is no such thing as corruption in cameroon (when cameroon was first classified the most corrupt in the universe), they send motions of support. Five years later when paul says he is fighting corruption,they send motions of support.
When he buys a new plane for billions of cfa just for his private use,they send motions of support,
when chantal is pregnant,they send motions of support,
even when he goes to europe for his private issues and stays there for months in some of the most expensive hotels on earth they are sending motions of support.
hahaaaa
The next day when paul says

Teribobs,
You call Watersih a grade three teacher? Woders will never end.Many in the forum have been wondering if your likes and the Momos ever passed through an elementary school.Most readers on the forum get confused with most of your postings because they do not make any sense at all.Read through your postings and those of Watersih and then make a comparism of the two.The childish stuff you guys post on the forum are a disgrace to many.If man pas you carry ye bag.Watersih na rock.Do not dare raise your finger.

BenB,
Your chairman Muna Iscariot says someone was kidnapped from Ngaoundere to Bamenda? What a joke.What are these political bandits taking Cameroonians for? Kidnapped from Ngaoundere to Bamenda? God forbid.Chief mourners sometimes reason beyound their noses.Well maybe I can interprete this type of reasoning as fatigue that might have resulted from excessive weeping.Sorry about that.You want to know what became of the Memo? Right? Maybe you have gone through the resolutionS of the wonderfully successful Bamenda convention.As a reasonable person do not draw conclusions from the air.This exposes your naivity to the punblic.We are all observing the political development in Cameroon.Let's see how far a judas can go this time around.Those who love liberty love the people while those who love power love themselves.Tell me where Muna Iscariot belong.

BenF,
Please tell me what had become of the United Africa's Association, UNAFAS created by Ni Ben?

If UNAFAS died just when it was created then, this fiction called "authentic SDF" had died before its creation. Is Ni Ben destined from one failure to another?

I'll be back.

It is unfortunate that the SDF criticises the Soviet type of absolute power, yet in today's world they still give the chairman absolute powers. Are we going forward or backwards? It is a shame to Democracy.

Why I Admire Ni John (I)
I’ll say later why I chose today, doomsday-9, for this tribute to Ni John.

You see, my friends, I am a natural person. I am generally informal and simple with people, especially people I feel are less privileged than me, one way or the other.

If I were a politician, I believe I’d be a man of the people. But, I never will be a politician, so I admire man-of-the-people politicians. I feel like they’re doing it for me. Unfortunately we don’t have many of them around.

Most of our African politicians are from modest backgrounds but once on the high seat, they adopt strange attitudes you won’t recognize them anymore. You’d be lost for ways to reconcile their new attitudes to their background. You'd expectd that because a man's background is supposed to form his character.

Once in power, most African leaders become distant to their people, even their old friends and comrades who in some way or other were the ladders through which African leaders accede to power.

Worst of all, most of them, after obtaining the people’s votes, disappear from sight to be seen again only when next they need votes from the people.

Usually poor, hungry, psychologically battered people cannot resist the temptation of trading their precious votes for a few pieces of silver or cups of rice, salt and cooking oil. And thereafter, they are forgotten again. Till next time.

I am back to base watesih, you should know that i don't edit my stuff i just seat and write,that's it,why should i edit stuff writen about dictator Fru ndi.

Mbu B,
Your rhetorics deserved a good look at.
The cpdm/biya must be happy at the turn of events.Remember during his press conference prof Asonganyi said 'rumours abound that the sdf hierarchy is feeding freely with cpdm/biya'.We are all witness of what the sdf hierarchy did and the consequences today.Asonganyi,must have been talking some of these in private to the chair who was busy enjoying his new found comfort.

The advisers that Fru ndi is suppose to have around him, is to draw his attention when things are derailing.I am sure prof ngwasiri,Nyoh wakai and the rest must have tried too,but you only know a leader when he is capable of identifying danger,this is fru ndi's greatest weakness,failing to spot the threat others around him pose to the party,he is only interested to threat to his person.I am also sure late ma Rose heart attack must be linked to all this,seeing the changes to the husband and noticing some questionable largesse of abundance from the cpdm must have given her worrying times.The rest is history.

Cpdm is happy,for finally they have caged fru ndi.Long before prof ngwasiri's challenged on Fru ndi,he was already seriously cornered,for he depended too much from their largesse hence his criticism of cpdm/biya was ebbing away.

In these circumstances,sensing that his subordinates too are noticing him change,Fru ndi move from the listening chair of the sdf to the terrible dictator we now see him.Dismissing those who have worked tiredlessly for the sdf all their life.Things then move from bad to worst.

Mbu B, i still beleive a compromise can be found,but it should be done quickly.In politics you are not given power but you take it.You should also understand when to hand power over,else it will be cheaply and easily taken from you.This is what is happening to fru ndi.He is loosing power fast, the bad thing is, he has not planned all this,and he is getting nervous,too bad.

Beleive me the cpdm will be changing their strategy soon,Mbah,ndam/fru ndi will be finding it difficult to get all their new found priviledges because cpdm knows fru ndi is weaker with two sdf,but Muna must raised his game, he must move to the people with what he has at stock and start reconciling all the disgruntle factions going far aback as he can to rethinkle the party and move on,with or without fru ndi.

Onething is very certain the sdf must start planning without fru ndi,for his time is up,the likes of yoyo/mbah ndam be send to where they belong for they don't look like political big weight and will all demised with fru ndi.

Fon Lawrence and Klamenceau, dear Readers,

You people are hypocrites of the first order. You are the only people thinking that I write lies. Whenever you want to prove me wrong, please kindly address the issues one by one.

Why have you people not responded to the many pertinent questions I have raised?

1.) By ignoring the many questions I have asked surrounding the death of Mr. Makoge inside the compound of Ni John Fru Ndi, do you people want to say my reasoning makes no sense? Do you want to tell this forum that the murder of Makoge in the compound of Ni John Fru Ndi was given the proper attention it deserved? Where there any detentions made after the murder? Were there any trials and judiciary investigations made? Was the gun that was used to murder Makoge inside the compound of Ni John Fru Ndi consficated or examined? Has the killer been tried or cross examined? Has the SDF as a political body set up any commission of enquiry? Has any reports or judgments been passed on this murder in cold blood? Would Ni John Fru Ndi had abandoned this murder the way he has done if someone else like Mbah Ndam, Yoyo, Sama, Dr. Cornelius Ndi or any of his children was the one killed in cold blood by someone from an enermy camp?

What are you people calling lies? Why are you people avoiding very important questions? Who do you people think you are deceiving? Can any civilized organization or country treat the muder of Makoge inside the compound of Ni John Fru Ndi the way it was done?

If you find this particular topic very challenging, can you please contact Ni John Fru Ndi himself and then give us answers to all the questions I have been asking on the cold blood murder of Mr. Makoge inside the compound of Ni John Fru Ndi.

2) Look, I want to remind you people that your main aim in writing that Memo was to bring a temporal peace and calm in this forum, until the Bamenda convention completes its deliberations. The heat was too hard for you people to withstand and you found the position of Ni John Fru Ndi on the balance. You people tried all means to sing your normal praises to Ni John Fru and even used primitive and outdated methods to do this. You intimidated readers, insulted them, told lies, blackmailed and even used people’s names to write out false stories. After exhausting all means to intimidate readers into not writing, you finally germinated the notion of writing a Memo that could push us into a wait and see position. You people miscalculated and failed woefully. Although some readers considered your move worth appreciating, I immediately dismissed it as fake and having a dubious intention. I clearly demonstrated that there was nothing new in the Memo you people wrote and asked if Ni John Fru Ndi with his gang of confusionists do not know what they are doing. Events have demonstrated that I had all reasons to completely reject it.

Now to make this Memo issue childishly simple for you the writers, I want to know if you people could have forwarded such an “important” document without a cover letter accompanying it. Do you people want to force readers into believing that you people merely forwarded the Memo alone? Readers are convinced you people sent the Memo with a cover letter accompanying it, but the problem disturbing everyone is the fact that you people have refused to publish the cover letter, even despite many requests for you people to do so. Even if you people decide now to publish the cover letter, readers would still want to understand why you people have taken so long to release it in the modified version that may be published.

3) When I stated that the events leading to the death of Gregoire in Yaounde give us reason to hold Ni John Fru Ndi responsible, I was merely stating something for even the blind to see. Had Ni John Fru Ndi not issued a public document openly warning anyone dealing with Professor Ngwasiri and that that person would be doing so at his or her own risk? Where is the lie in my write up? Was Gregoire not dealing with Professor Ngwasiri? Did the open warning from Ni John Fru Ndi exclude Gregoire? Was Ni John Fru Ndi not interrogated by the security Department in Bamenda because of this death threat he issued? Mindful of the existence of the public warning from Ni John Fru Ndi, is someone completely wrong to accuse Ni John Fru Ndi for masterminding the attempted murder on Professor Ngwasiri?

4) Concerning the election in Fundung against Jua, you people are pretending not to see reason in my analysis and you people have refused to answer the questions I raised. You have been crying fowl when readers write on the “private life” of Ni John Fru Ndi, despite the fact that I have done everything to educate you on the fact that there is NO boundary between the public life and private life of a public figure like the chairman of the SDF. I even went further to back up my arguments with the Presiodent Bill Clinton and Monica Lewisky sex scandal and court case and asked you people if Americans were stupid to have spent BILLIONS OF AMERICAN DOLLARS on this case.

As you people were dancing “bottle-Dance” in this forum to celebrate the victory of Ni John Fru Ndi in Fodung,, I asked you people if Ni John Fru Ndi and his campaign team were not using the private life of Jus to buy over votes. One of Ni John Fru Ndi’s campaign directors even went as far as stating that Jus was attending the elections in traditional attire but without the traditional cap. What has his wearing a traditional cap got to do with elections in the SDF? Another campaign director of Ni John Fru Ndi cried out why Jua should be coming to the elections with rubber shoes. Why are you people blind when things you complain come up from your camp? And then, as if to express his highest degree of illiteracy and primitivity, Ni John Fru Ndi mounted the podium to tell the world that instead of attending to SDF assignments, Jus preferred attending to his private contracts and was giving out a hundred thousand frs for any member who carries out the assignment. Should Jus put all his energy into the SDF basket? What would happen if he one day leaves parliament and has to live on his private contracts to feed his family? Why didn’t you people criticize Ni John Fru Ndi and his congregation of doom for going so low in Fondung?

Look Fon Lawrence and Klamenceau, you people have been trying to prove as if you people are objective while in reality you people are one-sided. Either you people pretend to see some faults in Ni John Fru Ndi when the current is too strong for you to handle or you people pretend to see his faults only when you people want readers to go to sleep, while Ni John Fru Ndi swallows the entire nation. You may say that I have taken a radical stand against Ni John Fru Ndi and I agree. We supported Ni John Fru Ndi when he took a radical stand against Paul Biya. That was the moment we were all prepared to die behind him. Today, he had taken a U turn and is instead maintaining our thief president Paul Biya in power. Not only that. Ni John Fru Ndi is doing everything to chase out able people who can chase Biya out of the president. For Ni John Fru Ndi, it is either “I as the Chairman or no one else.” He has done this many times inside the SDF, where he has set up a propaganda and blackmail machinery against all those who have committed a crime by going to school and becoming intellectuals. He has also been doing the same outside the SDF. While other political leaders like Late Samuel Eboa, Jean Jacques Ekindi and many others would surrender from the race just to push Ni John Fru Ndi, Ni John Fru Ndi was the only opposition Leader who refused to support Doctor Adamou Ndam Njoya as the opposition’s candidate for the presidential. Mindful of the secret deal he has with President Paul Biya, Ni John Fru Ndi decided to break away from the coalition of opposition parties and then paved a bright way for president Paul Biya to match back into the presidency.

What disturbs me most is the fact that some of you blind supporters are now saying that you agree with me on some points and that some of my points are justified. Akoson even went as far as scoring me the “prestigious 10/20 mark in his worthless evaluation. You people see some sense in what Mukete the Madman is writing? You people can even grade the “Fiction” that mukete the CPDM-sponsored agent is writing? You people agree with the mukete who wants to take the post of Ni John Fru Ndi? May be you people thinking that by seeing sense in what I write, my mind will be softened. You people are making a big mistake. Readers expect you people NOT to see any sense or logic in what I write. Readers expect you people to award me a – (minus) 20/20. Readers expect you people to continue to call my write ups “FICTIONS.” I personally do not feel flattered by the fact that you agree with me or with my right to reason in my own way. When I see you people agree with me, I feel red hot bile flowing into my brain.

I have given you the green light to go on trying to drag me into mud, as Ni John Fru Ndi is doing to other Cameroonians. The only difference is that you lack the means and budget to see me into my graves earlier than the day that the Almighty God has prepared for me. Go and offer sacrifices in your Ntarikon palace against mukete; go and force old takubeng women into opening their sacred things into the air to curse mukete; go and ask Ni John Fru Ndi to mobilize this Ntarikon Taliban militia against mukete; go and tell Ni John Fru Ndi to request tear gaz from his fried president Paul Biya to send mukete to heaven; go and offer special prayers agains mukete. But be contented with the mere fact that my shield is the Almighty God. He considers me too precious to be left at the mercy of killers who have conspired with the CPDM government to throw the blood of innocent people. It is this same God who saved professor Ngwasiri from the hands of evil men.

I insist and maintain that history will judge Fon Lawrence, Klamenceau, Akoson, Watesih, Aaron Nyangkwe, Knganjo and those who have used that your worthless Memo to give instructions on how innocent freedom should be dealt with. No amount of pretentious hypocrisy will save you people from the judgments that await you. It may take long but it will surely come.

Look liars, do not push me onto the wall, because readers know that you are the people who forced me into taking the radical position I now find myself. I couldn't fold my arms and lower by voice while you people tell the world that white is black. No way!

Why I Admire Ni John (II)

So, as I was saying, most African leaders are like apparitions. They appear and disappear. They come. They go. But John Fru Ndi remains.

I, of course, don’t mean here that Ni John lives (or will live) forever. But he doesn’t come get the votes and disappears. He is almost always with the people.

He has toured Cameroon more than a dozen times, touching not only the provincial headquarters as most politicians do. He goes to the hinterlands, into the most remote areas and communes with the people. He is most at ease with the people. Just look at the rest, you’ll see the difference is clear.

Ni John is an incredibly informal person. Go visit him at his Ntarikon home and if you don’t know him well enough, if you expect to recognize him by seeing the BIG MAN of the house (the Ntarikon Palace) you won’t figure out who the man Ni John is. He is simple.

The way he comes across, both in Ntarikon and on his tours and other informal outings, don’t be surprised if some day you met President Fru Ndi (if/whenever destiny landed him at Unity Palace) buying cocoa yams at your local market all by himself.

And you’d be able to go to Unity Palace and ask to see the president, the way it goes presently at the Ntarikon Palace. He would give a human face to politics.

Imagine the psychological booster, if nothing else, that could have on poor suffering masses and market women. It would uplift them and energise them to be even more productive.

It is that demystifying change that Ni John could bring to our presidency that makes me regret till date that his victory was stolen in 1992.

He would have shown by now, I hope, that a president is not a king. He won’t have been as distant from the people as our great King Paul Biya is. Unity Palace would have been the people’s palace.

Why I Don’t Mind Mbah Ndam (I)


The years when the SDF was at a crossroads whether it was a political party or pressure group are now gone. The party is fully in politics. That is POLITICS. In both senses, if you understand.

However, as old habits die hard, the SDF maintains its notoriety as an activist group; the one political organisation in the country that still gives the CPDM sleepless nights, even with its official shrunken national spread and low rank and file morale.

This double status, of POLITICAL party and barefaced pressure group has become an asset understood only those who know. It’s a very creative hybrid status.

Internal SDF blunders and perpetual rigging of elections by the Biya regime have left prospects for the SDF ever getting to power looking bleak by the day. At the rate, it looks like it will take another age before that ever came to pass.

Faced with this frustration, many have seen the option of the SDF taking seats in government as the next realistic step while waiting for an appropriate time when the playing field would be sufficiently level to accede to power on merit.

Seeing the catastrophic effect joining the Biya government has had on other parties, that option has become a dilemma to the SDF. Left to a group of influential militants of the party, most of them in parliament, the party should have given the damn, faced the stark reality and taken its seats in the government BECAUSE TIME IS RUNNING OUT for some of them of a certain age.

Never mind that they point accusing fingers at others. They know that we know the truth.

Conscious of its lack of legitimacy, the Biya regime faced its own reality that it can’t have its peace to eat quietly if it doesn’t pamper the SDF in some way. The thieving rich can’t enjoy their meal if they don’t throw some crumbs to quiet the wailing poor.

Biya has found a way to make the SDF to tone down without muscling. That way, the SDF can be patient and WAIT for its time, while the Biya regime went about its business without having to be looking over its shoulder. Biya is telling the SDF, “Look, you have the potentials but you have to wait for your turn. In the meantime, let’s be friends and…well, you know what friends are for.”

Fru Ndi, left to himself, his old radical, intransigent self that many criticized in the mid-1990s, would have been in difficulty to make a sudden about turn to UNDERSTAND the terms imposed by this new realism.

It takes one who understands the system to make the Chairman see. It takes a young talented lawyer who knows how to read the signs, to advise an early day headstrong crusader like Ni John the name of the game.

Why I Don’t Mind Mbah Ndam (II)


You must be cynical not to admire this young man whom people swear their lives is dining with the devil yet delivers the goods. The question would be, Do you want the goods or the good? Is it a good heart you want (no one sees the heart; not even their very own) or the goods from the hand?

In politics you must deliver the GOODS, that is, make things happen and bring out tangible results even where things look impossible. No room here for the GOOD, or talk about values, morality, justice, fairness, equal opportunities, human rights… continue the list. The goods not the good, my friend. If you want the good, go to church. The political arena is soapbox not pulpit. Period.

Everyone can see the work of the good hand – good or bad. People can only speculate on the content of the heart. So, when a political party is in dire straits, faced with a determined Biya monster regime as some of us here have rightly said, what but facing the reality makes sense? Reality will deliver the goods. Morality, values may look good, so what?

Look, you must doff your heart to Hon. Mbah Ndam for bringing in much needed realism into this SDF politics that took off with an overdose of HEART (emotional politics) and forgot the HAND (realpolitik).

Why I Don’t Mind Mbah Ndam (III)


Now see the goods from the hand – the fruits of Mbah Ndam’s realism:


1.) At every vote counting at the Supreme Court where Mbah Ndam has been representing the SDF since 1992, files for the best SDF petitions have always gone missing. Mysteriously. From Mbah Ndam’s briefcase.

Or interesting technical “errors” have been made, like filing a case for candidate A in constituency B so that it is outright rejected even without a hearing. That then paves the way for a CPDM candidate to carry the day.

Someone wants to say, Whatever the case judges would still rule in favour of CPDM candidates. As if some SDF candidates haven’t won before. Didn’t Kwemo win his seat in court?

2.) After each of those mysterious disappearances or technical “errors”, obvious camaraderie, not anger as you’d expect, increases between our smart lawyer and the people you would expect him to scorn for stealing the files to ease victory for the Biya regime or CPDM parliamentary or municipal candidates.

3.) You’ll understand this better when you know that Mbah Ndam’s vote counting commission sparring partner on the CPDM side has often been …(who?) Emmanuel Gerard Ondo Ndong, the famous chop money of FEICOM.

4.) And now you’ll understand why Mbah Ndam sent a motion of support to Biya after Ondo Ndong was arrested over embezzlement.

Someone who hates Mbah Ndam said it was Mbah Ndam’s way of saying to Biya: “Papa, I beg no gree make that man call my name for dat palaver. Even if my name comot for documents dem, cover am for me. Na beg I di beg you, Papa Biya.”

Someone said he could easily believe Mbah Ndam was tapping from Ondo Ndong because SDF Mbah Ndam loyalists had in the past couple of years suddenly toned down and abstained from criticising Ondo Ndong’s embezzlement where that would otherwise have been their sing-song.


5.) Now, if you could be fooled to scorn Mbah Ndam for enriching himself, would you not clap for him when he knocked on just the right doors to make the “wicked” Biya regime suddenly became compassionate and without holding the obligatory evacuation commission meeting, summarily granted 23 million frs for Ma Rose’s evacuation to Switzerland. Didn’t he do well?

Ma Rose was dying. Ni John was rushing to Bamenda to collect his old bankbook. He needed cash for Ma Rose’s treatment. Ni was all confused, his face full of tears when the darling wonder boy Mbah Ndam called him to say, “Ni no worry. I don press di correct button. Pepper don comot.”

Won’t you doff your heart to Mbah Ndam for making this politics thing interesting when by now, with all the huddles placed on our way by the Biya regime, this politics could have become so frustrating and boring?

Put yourself in Ni John’s place. Even if some idealists were crying foul that Mbah Ndam has sold the party won’t you, in Ni John’s place just say to Mbah Ndam, “Boh you be trong pikin”?

So, don’t blame Ni John for FOLLOWING, instead of LEADING, Mbah Ndam. Ni had to face the dynamics of politics. Na condition make njanga e back bend.

That’s not all, but that will do for now. Or you too may say more on why we badly need Mbah Ndam around to move the party forward in this newfound realism (realpolitik).

One word for Mbu.B:

It is escapist to always blame Biya for the troubles we face within the party. Biya is a politician and in politics you want greater space to manipulate.

Like a football player, every politician needs the greatest space possible to score goals without having to dribble too much. Dribbling is straining.

If we create that space for Biya and let him play with ease, that's our own undoing. If you make yourself a banana monkeys will eat you.

It is escapist of us to always say the troubles in the SDF are caused by Biya. We always want to throw the blame overboard. Let's introspect.

We ourselves disagree over principles and acts, and instead of harbouring our differences as democrats (social democrats for that matter) we use the hammer (8.2).

Is it Biya who applies 8.2? And you think victims of 8.2 will forever stand by and watch their sweat and blood be spat upon and washed down the drain?

Don't blame Biya. Blame ourselves. Blame 8.2.

This SDF introspection is the substance of the series "SDF Living Martyrs". Watch out.

Ebongue

In an interview to the French language Nouvelle Expression, retired colonel Chi Ngafor, head of the "SDF Vanguards" says the following:

"on that friday, I dispatched SDF vanguards, on orders from my superiors, to prevent the holding of Ben Muna's convention."

COMMENT: The violence and subsequent deaths stem from this preventive deployment of the vanguards. So please, let us stop playing the ostritch and accept that this death was an internal SDF matter and not some machination by Biya regime or the CPDM.

Once the SDF asked security forces to deal with the Ngwasiri faction, they should have left the Muna convention to fall or stand on its own merits rather than try to physically prevent its holding.

And if, Colonel Chi is right that he was acting on orders of the "hierarchy", then Fru Ndi's reponsibility is not only moral and political, but also criminal.

Here are the colonel's exact words to the question "Justement que savez-vous de ce meurtre?"

"Je n'en sais pratiquement rien. A la date indiquée, ce vendredi là, j'avais envoyé les "vanguards" du Social democratic front [service d'ordre du parti] sur instruction de ma hiérarchie, pour empêcher la tenue du congrès de Me Muna. Vous savez que depuis quelque temps ils occupent illégalement le secrétariat du Sdf à Yaoundé. Je me suis plaint à plusieurs reprises par nombre de correspondances au gouverneur [du Centre] et au préfet [du Mfoundi], pour leur demander de faire libérer le secrétariat [siège du Sdf dans le Centre, situé à Olezoa, non loin du lieu du crime]. Malheureusement, ces autorités n'ont rien fait. Mais avec l'annonce du congrès bis du Sdf, la hiérarchie de mon parti m'avait demandé de faire occuper les lieux pour les empêcher de s'y installer. Ils avaient en effet dit que dans le cas où on les empêchait de tenir leur congrès au Palais des Congrès, ils allaient le faire au secrétariat. Il s'agissait de s'installer sur les lieux le plus tôt possible..."

Why wasting your precious times discussing party politics. Only an independent southern cameroons can solve the problems of the southern cameroons. Sonara is still paying its taxes in douala, southern cameroonians are still being raped, exploited, our poor parents are still being harassed, etc.

Dylan

Ebongue,

Could you please stop pointing fingers and read between the lines? The colonel said, the party hierarchy asked him to have the party premises in Yaounde occupied by Vanguards, so that the convention won’t take place at the party headquarters, this is standard procedure. And this was in anticipation of the fact that Muna and Co. might hold their convention at the party headquarters if they are prevented from holding their convention at the Palais des Congres. The Colonel said Vanguards were sent empty handed (no knives, stones, guns etc) and he told them if they were attacked by Muna’s supporters they should find wooden material at a nearby carpentry store and “defend themselves”. I didn’t read anywhere that they were asked to molest or kill anybody.


Ben B

Le Messager is comparable to CNN in the United States they have lost track of what it means to be good journalists (being able to report objectively). They are more of advocates than journalists. Pius Njawe’s Le Messager supports the Ngwasiri camp, everybody knows that. Pius Njawe is a victim of Prof. Ngwasirri’s “misinterpretation” of a constitution he took part in drawing up. Mr. Njawe forgot he was first of all a journalist and couldn’t hide his hate for Fru Ndi.
As for SDF’s article 8.2, it is a necessary tool in a young democracy like Cameroon’s. And there are checks and balances. Anybody who feels he/she has been unjustly subjected to article 8.2 can appeal the case to party instances. I don’t think anyone of these guys did that. Instead they went and organized their own convention. The Yaounde convention was a “Convention of ex unrepentant SDF members”. Others have been kicked out of the party and they did what was required for them to be rehabilitated into the party. Evariste Fopoussi won’t deny this.

Ebongue

Dylan, don't defend the indefensible.

The fact is that the SDF camp took the law in its hands by trying to occupy the disputed party premises in Yaounde. This is the single event that precipitated the confrontation, irrespective of whether it was started by pro-ngwasiri or pro-Ndi factions.

It was not the duty of party vanguards to try and stop the Muna convention - that was the role of Mfoundi administrative authorities who had already banned the convention from taking place at the Congress center. All the SDF should have done was draw the attention of the SDO for Mfoundi that Muna and co were planning to hold their illegal convention at another venue.

Again, Fru Ndi's vanguards should have left the Muna convention to stand or fall on its own merits or let the administration handle the matter as it saw fit..

In the end, the inevitable confrontation occured, one person lost his life and the convention still took place IN THE SAME LOCATION!!!

So please tell me what was gained from the action of the vanguards...

Politics is not just about being right; it is also about how we go about exercising our rights.

On this score, the Pro-Fru Ndi camp failed to think strategically; its actions inadvertently focused attention on the events in Yaounde instead of the Bamenda convention.

At worst this is gross incompetence, and at best, poor politics.

This is the view of a disinterested observer who has nothing at stake in this fight. If you want to continue to be stupid that is your prerogative.

Dear Readers, People of God,

As I have stated on many ocassions, we shall know the truth and it shall set us free.

You will all agree that I was one of the very first readers to comment on the murder case in Yaounde. When I did, people like Watesih, Akoson, Klamenceau, Knganjo, Aaron Nyangkwe, Fon Lawrence and their gang members immediately started insulting me and telling this forum that all what I know is writing fiction and telling lies. Since the day Gregoire was murdered, and as they continue to distort facts - even trying to accuse the CPDM in this order-, I kept praying and praying that the Good Lord should bring the truth to light. Convinced that the SDF hierarchy was directly involved in the murder, I only looked forward to the day that the truth will come out. Normally, human blood is so precious that one can not throw it and go unidentified for ever.

And as Klamenceau, Fon Lawrence, Aaron Nyangkwe, Watesih, Akoson, Knganjo, continued to cover the SDF hierarchy, they promised to withdraw their support for Ni John Fru Ndi if it is provened that his faction of the SDF ordered the attack in Yaounde that killed Gregoire. This is what they have been telling us today, and thank God that the confirmation for the involvement of the Ni John Fru Ndi faction of the SDF is coming from within the Ni John Fru Ndi circle itself.

Retired Colonel Chi is the man that Ni John Fru Ndi hand picked to replace Mr. Zamboe as SDF central provincial president. It is therefore acceptable that what Retired Colonel Chi says concerning the SDF faction of Ni John Fru Ndi MUST be taken seriously and as true. As God would have it, following his interrogation at the security Department in Yaounde, Colonel Chi - the right hand man of Ni John Fru Ndi in Yaounde - was interviewed on the murder case in Yaounde. People like Klamenceau, Fon Lawrence, Aaron Nyankwe, Knganjo, Watesih, Akoson and the others who want to hide the truth, should be informed that Colonel Chi was under his normal senses during the interview; he had not consumed any beer or used any drug; he was not under pressure as simple Journalists were those interviewing him; he had not met with the CPDM government since the sad incident took place. This is clear enough to tell us that NO ONE should doubt the credibility of what colonel Chi told the journalists who interviewed. Since someone like our "Journalist hors categorie" Aaron Nyankwe would always want to reject anything from French Newspapers or French Journalists, we would like him to find out from Colonel Chi if there is any additional or fake information in his interview that has been published (From Mutation Newspaper, Pasted after this analysis).

And before people like Klamenceau, Fon Lawrence, Akoson, Knganjo, Watesih and Aaron Nyangkwe start to plan strategies on how to twist the brain of readers, I would, for now, comment on some points FROM WHAT COLONEL CHI has said. Mine is a logical presentation and I would like them to honestly address them.

1)Colonel Chi accepts the fact that HE SENT THE SDF VANGUARDS ON THAT DAY, UNDER INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE SDF HIERACHY TO STOP THE CONVENTION OF MUNA FROM TAKING PLACE.

Hear Colonel Chi:

"A la date indiquιe, ce vendredi lΰ, j'avais envoyι les "vanguards" du Social democratic front [service d'ordre du parti] sur instruction de ma hiιrarchie, pour empκcher la tenue du congrθs de Me Muna."


"Mais avec l'annonce du congrθs bis du Sdf, la hiιrarchie de mon parti m'avait demandι de faire occuper les lieux pour les empκcher de s'y installer. Ils avaient en effet dit que dans le cas oω on les empκchait de tenir leur congrθs au Palais des Congrθs, ils allaient le faire au secrιtariat. Il s'agissait de s'installer sur les lieux le plus tτt possible..."

2)The action od premeditated as the Vanguards were asked to descend very early in the morning so as to take their victims unaware.

"En dιcidant d'y descendre trθs tτt, ΰ partir de 5h30, nous espιrions ne trouver personne comme d'habitude, en attendant qu'ils viennent dans la journιe. "

3) The instruction from the SDF hierarchy was far beyond preventing the holding of the Ben Muna convention in the SDF secretariat. It was intended to kill. Prove is the fact that the colonel sent 60 (SIXTY) Vanguards. In Cameroon, if someone like Colonel Chi who has been trained by the CPDM mafia military tells us that he ordered 60 vanguards to attack people, then we have to multiply that number by about five (5). By mobilizing such a high number of fighters, Colonel Chi took the instructions from Ni John Fru Ndi very seriously.

Hear him:

"Au sujet de ceux qui sont venus d'ailleurs, je n'en sais rien. Je sais que j'y ai envoyι au moins une soixantaine de "vanguards"."


4) From this interview, one understands that from the instructions given to the Vanguards, they understood that the operation they were going to carry out could lead to serious physical confrontation and that they was the possibility of body injuries. Since the operation was to take place very early in the morning when people were normally expected in bed sleeping, the Vanguards couldn't have been asking what they should do if attacked. They understood their mission fully well.

Also, the Colonel could not have been asking people to use pieces of wood to defend themselves, since they were going to a place at a moment that no one was expected to be there.

Hear Colonel Chi:

"Ils m'ont posι la question : "Et si nous sommes attaquιs ?" Je leur ai dit il y a lΰ un atelier de menuiserie: "Prenez les morceaux de bois pour vous dιfendre".

Linking the SDF secretariat to a carpenter's workshop makes no sense because even if there were Ben Muna's people in the Secretariat at 5:30 in the morning, none of them would have been keeping pieces of wood or arms in the secretariat. The authentic SDF central provincial EXCO were already in full command of the secretariat and were legally occupying it following the verdict of the Yaounde court of law. They never felt thier position in the secretariat threatened and so were working in it unarmed.

5) To say that the over 60 Vanguards went emty handed is false. What did they use to pull out the eyes of Gregoire? What inflicted injuries on the many victims undergoing treatment in Yaounde? Their shoes? Papers in the secretariat? Computers in the secretariat? The pens they were using?

Hear Colonel Chi:

"La preuve : ils sont partis les mains nues. On ne savait pas qu'il y avait quelqu'un au siθge c'est pourquoi ils sont partis les mains nues.

6) To say that it was the supporters of Ben Muna who attacked the supporters of Ni John Fru Ndi is a lie becuase everyone knows that that secretariat was fully occupied by supporters of Ben Muna. If Ben Muna's supporters were those who attacked the Vanguards, then one might be tempted into believing that the Vanguards were already occupying the secretariat when the supporters of Ben Muna arrived. This ios not clear. Since the vanguards visited the secretariat very early in the morning with EMPTY hands, and mindful of the fact that President Zamboe of the Ben Muna group were those keeping the keys to the secretariat, WHAT DID THE VANGUARDS USED TO OPEN THE SECRETARIAT AND OCCUPY IT? Their empty hands or their teeth?

Hear Colonel chi:

"Ce qui s'est passι lundi, c'est que les militants fidθles ΰ John Fru Ndi ont ιtι attaquιs par les partisans de Muna."

7) To show that Colonel Chi never regretted the death and distruction caused by the instruction from Ni John Fru Ndi, even after the death, he was insisting that the supporters of Ben Muna who were inside the secretariat be sent out. He failed to understand that legality had been given to the Professor Ngwasiri group and that they were legally occupying the place.

From the point of view of legality, the Ntarikon Talibans were tresspassing in the SDF secretariat because according to the Yaounde court verdict, the secretariat was to be under the control of Pascal Zamboe of the Ben Muna group. Had the court not suspended all the decisions taken by NEC since 2003, including the decision to dismiss the elected executive of the central province?

Hear Ni John Fru Ndi's Colonel Chi:

"Le commandant de compagnie de Yaoundι II qui se trouvait sur place m'a dit que c'est son territoire et qu'il avait pour mission d'empκcher qu'il y ait des troubles ΰ l'ordre public. Aprθs beaucoup de nιgociations, j'ai demandι ΰ ces officiers qu'ils fassent sortir tout le monde, afin qu'il n'y ait plus de scθnes pareilles. Il m'a rιpondu qu'il a saisi sa hiιrarchie qui allait prendre la dιcision. Ils ont dit qu'ils allaient rester sur place. Depuis ce jour je n'y suis pas repassι. J'ai ιtι ιtonnι lorsqu'on m'a dit que les gendarmes avaient quittι les lieux et qu'il ne restait plus que le camp Muna sur place."

8) While did the attack take place on the day it did when the Bamenda convention was going on in peace? Are there no supporters of Ben Muna and Professor Ngwasiri in Bamenda who could also attack the Bamenda congress hall to disrupt the convention?


Now, over to those who go on singing that I have been writing fictions and telling lies. Is there any sense in what I have presented above?

Stay tuned for more.

Le coordonnateur du Sdf (pro Fru Ndi) dans le Centre prιsente sa version des faits au sujet de l'assassinat de Grιgoire Diboulι.
Propos recueillis par Jean Baptiste Ketchateng

--------------------------------------------

L'on vous annonce arrκtι dans le cadre de l'enquκte sur le meurtre d'un militant du Sdf, Grιgoire Diboulι. Mais apparemment vous κtes libre de tout mouvement. Que se passe-t-il ?
Vous me voyez bien en chair et en os. J'ai cependant ιtι interpellι, mais je suis libre.

Qui vous a interpellι ?
C'est la gendarmerie, parce que je suis un ancien militaire [colonel ΰ la retraite] et tout ce qui concerne les problθmes que je peux avoir avec la justice, c'est a priori la gendarmerie qui est compιtente.

Pourquoi avez-vous ιtι interpellι?
Il s'agissait des enquκtes sur l'assassinat du nommι Diboulι [Grιgoire Diboulι, militant du Sdf assassinι vendredi 26 mai ΰ Yaoundι autour de 5h du matin]. C'est ce qu'on m'a dit. On voulait savoir si je connaissais quelque chose ΰ ce sujet.

Justement que savez-vous de ce meurtre?
Je n'en sais pratiquement rien. A la date indiquιe, ce vendredi lΰ, j'avais envoyι les "vanguards" du Social democratic front [service d'ordre du parti] sur instruction de ma hiιrarchie, pour empκcher la tenue du congrθs de Me Muna. Vous savez que depuis quelque temps ils occupent illιgalement le secrιtariat du Sdf ΰ Yaoundι. Je me suis plaint ΰ plusieurs reprises par nombre de correspondances au gouverneur [du Centre] et au prιfet [du Mfoundi], pour leur demander de faire libιrer le secrιtariat [siθge du Sdf dans le Centre, situι ΰ Olezoa, non loin du lieu du crime]. Malheureusement, ces autoritιs n'ont rien fait. Mais avec l'annonce du congrθs bis du Sdf, la hiιrarchie de mon parti m'avait demandι de faire occuper les lieux pour les empκcher de s'y installer. Ils avaient en effet dit que dans le cas oω on les empκchait de tenir leur congrθs au Palais des Congrθs, ils allaient le faire au secrιtariat. Il s'agissait de s'installer sur les lieux le plus tτt possible...

Mais vous y ιtiez lundi et le jeudi au soir, le siθge ιtait occupι par le camp Muna. Vos "vanguards" sont venus ΰ quel moment ?
Nous ne savions pas qu'ils avaient dιjΰ occupι les lieux. Nous savons par contre que de temps en temps ils recrutent des loubards au marchι de Mokolo pour les installer au siθge et nous empκcher de tenir nos rιunions. C'est quand nous constatons qu'ils ne sont pas lΰ que nous nous rιunissons. En dιcidant d'y descendre trθs tτt, ΰ partir de 5h30, nous espιrions ne trouver personne comme d'habitude, en attendant qu'ils viennent dans la journιe.

Ceux qui venaient ce matin lΰ n'ont-ils pas reηu un renfort du Nord-Ouest, compte tenu de ce qu'il s'agissait d'empκcher l'autre congrθs ?
Absolument pas. La preuve : ils sont partis les mains nues. On ne savait pas qu'il y avait quelqu'un au siθge c'est pourquoi ils sont partis les mains nues. Au sujet de ceux qui sont venus d'ailleurs, je n'en sais rien. Je sais que j'y ai envoyι au moins une soixantaine de "vanguards". Ils m'ont posι la question : "Et si nous sommes attaquιs ?" Je leur ai dit il y a lΰ un atelier de menuiserie: "Prenez les morceaux de bois pour vous dιfendre".

Compte tenu de la tension qui montait, lundi il y a eu une bagarre, n'ιtait-il pas prιfιrable de recourir aux gendarmes ?
Ce qui s'est passι lundi, c'est que les militants fidθles ΰ John Fru Ndi ont ιtι attaquιs par
les partisans de Muna. Les gendarmes sont venus, je n'ιtais pas informι. C’est par la suite que j'ai ιtι informι de cette attaque. Le commandant de compagnie de Yaoundι II qui se trouvait sur place m'a dit que c'est son territoire et qu'il avait pour mission d'empκcher qu'il y ait des troubles ΰ l'ordre public. Aprθs beaucoup de nιgociations, j'ai demandι ΰ ces officiers qu'ils fassent sortir tout le monde, afin qu'il n'y ait plus de scθnes pareilles. Il m'a rιpondu qu'il a saisi sa hiιrarchie qui allait prendre la dιcision. Ils ont dit qu'ils allaient rester sur place. Depuis ce jour je n'y suis pas repassι. J'ai ιtι ιtonnι lorsqu'on m'a dit que les gendarmes avaient quittι les lieux et qu'il ne restait plus que le camp Muna sur place.

Ebongue,

The ideal situation would’ve been to look up to the authorities to get this matter resolved, but these authorities you’re looking up to are more concerned about their personal interests than the safety of “opposition members”, maybe you forgot. Both camps had repeatedly warned the SDO, Governor, etc. All the authorities did since the SDF saga started was help create more division

- The high court was in favor of Ngwasiri’s camp, who clearly misinterpreted the constitution
- The SDF was not allowed to march on May 20 under the pretext that there could be some wrangling between the opposing camps, indirectly recognizing Ngwasiri’s faction

I don’t think it is strategic in any way to look up to the authorities for a solution in a situation like this. These authorities don’t care about the well being of Cameroonian citizens, especially if you’re in the opposition. I have never been for violence but sometimes it is necessary. Too bad somebody died but I guess both camps would learn from this experience. I

I have no interest at stake in this SDF saga and my family is apolitical, I am just an observer.

I didn’t mean to be stupid and I’m sorry if I offended you by not throwing praises at you for the poor comment you posted, I was just making a contribution to the debate.

Teribobs

Watesih, Fon Lawrence, Atangha, Klemenceau and partners in crime,

I can see that you are really having nightmares whenever you read from my humble self or from BenB/F the savvy free thinker. If you were half his worth you could have been enjoying the fruits of your labour rather than rely on crumbs from the table of JFN and his gang.

Watesih, that was comic relief. So you write during break? Hmm Wonders shall never end. Man sell groundnut go break. So you are contented with being the scum of the earth? Instead of getting a second job to ameliorate your living standard you spend time on the net defending those feymen. I earlier advised that you should not waste our taxes. Use the free internet services at your disposal to look for a better job. I guess Samleyin and Atangha are doing just that. They should be taking some basic grammar lessons as well. Aaron doesn't dare mention the pseudonym Teribobs coz he knows I'll not only spit fire but will flow like lava.

Fon Lawrence, call me another Mukete and think that will attract sympathy from disciples of the SDF-JFN(the dead faction). NO WAY!!! They are decamping in their numbers.

momo

ask them TERIBOBS.
MAN SELL GRANNUT GO BREAK.
THESE GUYS ARE SO IDLE AND THE JUST NEED TO TAKE THE ADVICE YOU HAVE GIVEN THEM.their fake fru ndi sdf is doom to die.who is with them .mbah ndam and yoyo the feymen are now crying.everybody is living.
DID YOU HEAR THIS TERIBOBS.
FRU NDI IS NEW SEC. GENERAL OF SDF.HE WILL TAKE CONTROL OF THE CHAIRMANSHIP,SEC.GENERAL,AND CHAIRMANSHIP OF NAC.
POWER TO THE PEIPO.
MAN SELL GRANNUT GO BREAK HAHAHAHHA

Klemenceau

We Fon Lawrence and others keep insisting that this old crocket fellow Mukete is a visionary and a potent liar, people don't believe. He has came up now with another cry "cover letter". He amplified it and it is certain that the praise singers Teribobs and co already believe him.
Before now I use to ask him to bring proofs of his allegations against Fru Ndi and others but I have realized that this Mukete is an expert in fiction. I rest my case against Mukete and my conclusion is that he is not only the greatest liar but an evil incarnate. Even Hitler's propaganda minister, couldn’t be compared to you Mukete. That you are forcing readers to believe that a cover letter accompanied the Memo, just confirms that you are good at fiction writing. You take a situation and amplify it to suit your purpose. Jesus, help us!!!!!!
You shamelessly go back to the Makoge case. Why can't you take upon yourself to judge Fru Ndi and sentence him for killing Makoge? You claim you are in Fru Ndi’s inner circle yet you do not to know that the administration investigated the case of the death of Makoge. I know you are aware of this but how can you say something good about Fru Ndi? Do you think the Makoge's family is that blind or afraid to establish a case against Fru Ndi? Why do you want to tell the world that Fru Ndi is above the law so much so that he can kill and the government will be afraid to punish him?
The shameless coward that you are is still able to nurse the courage and talk about blood drinking in Fundong. Are you not ashamed? Despite the fact that your blind disciples were disappointed when you came up with this story, you are still going back to it. Why do you make yourself so stupid sometimes? Why have you allowed hatred for Fru Ndi to render you useless and silly? Why must frustration make you to sell your manhood to the devil? Why have you decided to bring your immediate family to shame? Why not try to safe the faces of your two wives and children from the shame of the murder of Esseme? What will you do when you finally don't succeed to kill Fru Ndi? Fall in the Mungo River, commit suicide at home in front of your two wives and children or apologize to Fru Ndi and the entire SDF family?
I would advice you as a friend to repent and apologize to Fru Ndi and the entire SDF family. You should denounce the devil and all his deeds and repent. God loves a repentant sinner and the host of heaven rejoices for a single soul that repents. God help you my brother.
Shalom
Klemenceau.

Chei Mukete,
Na which day wey u go answer the question about lawyer Eseme? How many times we go pull yr ears for remind you? Na wa-oh. U go play maradona witi this one end for whoosai?

Correction

When Fon Lawrence and others..........crooked (not crocket)

Mukete and Teribobs correct the rest.

Mukete,
Can you go ahead and publish the cover letter which accompanied the Memo on the forum.I have asked you over and over to comment on the killing of laywer Esseme by your father Mfon Mukete.The killing in Yaounde is not different from that which was exercised by the Mukete thugs in Kumba.You are a shameless bastard.Do not think your lies and intimidation can scare anyone from the forum.You are waisting your precious time.We are aware of your mission on the forum.Go ahead.That you pronounce God's name is beyound human comprehension.Does anyone doubts the fact that the woman who brought you into this world was demon possessed? Your writings project the spirit of demonism in the whole of your family.Yes Fru Ndi has betrayed the course of the opposition in Cameroon and so what? Do not forget a member of your family was once given the opportunity to promote freedom and democracy in Cameroon.Tell me what became of Ndoki MUKETE a one time Provincial Chairman of the sdf in the South West? Did Fru Ndi send him away from the sdf? This political prostitute jumped from the sdf to the scnc and from the scnc to FECAFOOT.He is now dining with the cpdm. Can you dare talk about this idiot? All you see is Fru Ndi.When your father kills an innocent soul in Kumba,steals government money and terrorise the population of Kumba all is attributed to Fru NDI.One of these days you will announce on the forum that Fru owns your mother. With Mukete everything is possible.

Valley of England,

Welcome back my brother.Though your trip was useless and worthless,you at least had fun and waisted the whole of your convention day of Saturday waiting for the indefatigable and the no nonsense Atangha in a bar at MELEN.You know sometimes when people talk Thomases won't believe until they take your their very eyes to witness the events.The Yaounde gathering was real drama.You were a witness and can now bear with me.In the mist of confusion you were at one moment spotted reporting from a beer parlour at Melen thinking you were at palais de congres.This is typical of Cameroonians my brother.However, I commend you for this worthless adventure to Yaounde. Your move was courageous.

Akoson


NI JOHN FRU NDI did NOT order VANGUARDS.

...His orders were;"try to make sure that the Yaounde convention doesn't hold so that our baby we fought for shouldn't be killed in a second by belly politicians".

...BREAKING NEWS:I forecast this forum becoming more mature if we do better!...as the SCNC group led by Tayong breaks all records.

BenF, Klemenceau, Fon Lawrence and Mukete accelerate to Honour roll. When the final results are released this weekend for the second semester we'll know why. Note that Mukete's new come back has been very wonderful as it's almost void of abuses and he without fiction, analyses Colonel Chi's interview. That's great! That's what we want in here. I personally will be making a response to his reaction. I enjoin all his detractors to react to his posting. BenF, my God-son is making remarkable progress. He's trying to be neutral against all odds while Watesih and Mbu B slightly improve by +.25 giving them 17.25/20 each.

As Tayong now hits the ISSUES they stand for, he catapults that group, SCNC as the best recently. This group is breaking all records. They now top the forum with 18/20. Wonderful score!

Momo too is not left out. He now at least writes lengthly and manages to reason. However small his contributions're his improvement is worth my comment. He's improved by a tiny +.00001.

There's one sad case, TERIBOBS. He goes down the bottom to 0/20. We all know why. Read and read the comments again.

The full results for this semester will be published over the weekend.

Keep thinking!

Mukete remember that I'm coming to respond to your reason which I consider amature. Remember that as the head of the SDF, Ni John Fru Ndi has the prerogative to have asked his suburdinate, Colonel to make sure that the Yaounde convention doesn't hold as the law states. He didn't advocate using force. He'd meant that Colonel, being in Yaounde should dust the corners and remind the administration prevent the convention. This is what colonel failed to understand. Instead, with the poor doctrine he's got for ages from the Biya government he interpreted Fru Ndi's words to mean VANGUARDS just as he interpretes the words of his commander in chief as TIRER. Where did Fru Ndi go wrong? Tell me! When something gets wrong in the SDF, Ni John Fru Ndi suffers. When NEC says "A", it's Fru Ndi who said it. Let's think, men! I pitty this old man who's struggling to see Mukete's son in Sacred Heart College becomes something tomorrow.


You guys shouldn't forget keeping your contributions short, avoid insults and give HARD facts.


Will be right back.

BenB,

I`ll gladly urge you to modify your appraisal of our political landscape. Biya inevitably takes the total blame for Cameroon`s present calamity, as well as a huge quota of the sorrowful state of our political parties.
Like most have echoed, when a house is in a mess, the leader takes the blame, just like when things go well he takes the praises.
Biya is a politician...very true. A politician will take advantage of other politicians weaknesses...also very true. The big difference it makes is that Biya is the president of Cameroon and none should rule a country without an agenda for development.
BenB, I am a proponent of devolopment, more precisely infrastructure building. Sometimes I find it regrettable politics and infrastructure building are so related in Cameroon.
Have you asked yourself why we`re been looked like subhumans sometimes in Europe and elsewhere...infrastructure, poverty,sickness,corruption etc is the answer. But I`ll always say it`s all about infrastructure. We don`t have them and we`re been looked like some primitive or worthless civilized monkeys. If Cameroon had the stadia and roads of South Africa even with the same HIV prevalence we would be placed under a different optic.
How would you compromise the fact that Ahidjo took two decades to build the manageable structures we have today and for morethan two decades Paul Biya does not even succeed in painting these structures. I mean painting, talkless of building others.
Man, our problem is not even who rules, but who elevates the standard of living.This is the mission of the president and he`s not even got to kindergarten with regards to this.
If you ever become a politician like Biya I`ll recommend this tactic; the best way to dribble your opponents is to build infrastructures,improve the standards and they will be quitened forever.It`s not by using taxpayers money to run down or manipulate them, this same money would be better used elsewhere.He cares much about destroying other parties for his survival than building and that is really retarding us.
Most importantly note that, the SDF had always had the ART 8:2, but it`s only recently that some egocentric politicians saw the defect it has and started swearing hell about it.Ofcourse they see the incentives at the Biya`s end.Possible appointments to ministerial posts, sponsorship to crack the once invincible political party and ofcourse it`s a corrupt mission they won`t ask for the change or verify if the budget was well spent. I hope you really get to see his responsibility better than me.
Moreover the general atmosphere of the SDF is a perfect reflection of the funeral Cameroon finds itself.
If this argument doesn`t digest, I`ll get some digestives very soon.
Cheers!

Teribobs

FL and co,
For your information I do selective reading on this forum. I don't have time to read the novels Mukete write.

rexon

Akoson,

If you go through the SCNC website, you will recognise ideal steps and successes being suggested and achieved by the SCNC. It is where you can presumably get realistic information about the SCNC. I think you may have come accross such links before.

Jimmystan

This party is becoming a greedy party, i think this party is becoming more a Bamenda Party

Akoson


Rexon,

To interprete what you just suggested in my own lil knowledge I guess you mean that the existence of SCNC activists in this forum is useless. Yes!...If everyone has to go to www.southerncameroonsig.org to read the daily progress of the SCNC then why should you exist in this forum? Secondarily, most guys here are busy and we sought this site hoping to meet guys like yourself to summarise whatever thing which has been happening to that GREAT struggle, in one sentence...I for one feel loath to go through the long novels posted on that site. Also remeber that the many Cameroonians outthere who happen to read on this site may NOT know the SCNC official website. I bumped into the site by chance and when I gave it to some of my friends who sympathise with the struggle, they were so suprised if at all such a thing exists. It is therefore the responsibility of this Forum's faction of the SCNC led by yourslef, Tayong and Lecigah,Massamoyo etc I guess, continue to discourage guys in this house who think that the struggle is a sham and or doesn't exist. I shouldn't also remind you that suppressing the forum and making it entirely become an SCNC forum is a mission you must strive to achieve if at all you hold the struggle in high esteem. I guess that's a difficult task but I think that should be one of your missions here.

Do you think that you'll be able to count your successes by the end of the day should you transform discussions in this house TO CENTER about the SCNC? Do you know the number of people you'll placade over should this forum adhers to the SCNC believe. Common on guy, you need a strategy and nomatter how small it may be such as this one, I bet things could happen. Nomatter how minute a thing that has been caused to happen, it is for the general good of the struggle, however small. Dismissing Mukete's views of the SCNC with a sigh or insults doesn't do the trick. Use your high level of persuasive skills to tell him and others why you think the SCNC struggle is paramount. If you make your case convincing enough, I think that the sky'll be your limit! One of Mukete's cry about the SCNC now is the legitimacy of the leaders. Leaders who just enjoy pleasure trips abroad...leaders who just want to satisfy their belly. Now go ahead and tell this forum and even the Presbyterian boss, Rt. rev. Nyansako( a man who doesn't even know the TRUE leadership of the SCNC - does that disturb you?) that the SCNC leadership is organised and working hard and what you need from them. Their support counts!

Massamoyo and Rexon, over to you both.

I humbly rest this case. But before I go remember that the present state of the SCNC is where it is today and not better cos all the youths who would've contributed the last drop of their sweat relly on a fragmented SDF that WILL NEVER TAKE POWER IN CAMEROON as the French swear. The SDF is there cos an opposition must exist.

Rexon

Akoson,

What i mean is that whatever we write here, whether for Ni John Fru Ndi, the SDF, CPDM, etc, is presumably our opinion and "May" not represent the position of the organisation and values we represent.

It was in these regards that i humbly referred you to our website as that will give you the best and up-to-date informations about our struggle. I did not say that we should not comment here or convince guys of the ideals of our struggle. You know, realistically, we are supposed to comment here only on articles pasted and not on other/abstract issues.

Akoson


Rexon,

Hear you; "...You know, realistically, we are supposed to comment here only on articles pasted and not on other/abstract issues..." Do we have internet police in this forum to hunt you for not commenting under a subject. Remember that you must press and press hard. Except you're JUST telling me that your presence in this forum is JUST to present YOUR OWN OPINION and not to dissect people's brains and force some sense in. Ok, I see!

SDF Living Martyrs: Souleymane

We lied – why haven’t they joined Biya?

The next time you’re in Yaounde, go to the department of taxes of the ministry of the economy and finance on the backstreet running from the Cinema Abbia-SHO Junction to the former U.S. Embassy (American Cultural Center). There, you’ll find a casualty of the SDF revolution. Well, if the person you hope to see hasn't been transfered.

Also, if you’d recognize Mahamat Souleymane, erstwhile 1st vice chair of the SDF. I fear you won't. Look, I tell you, that malam is now a ghost of himself.

Lanky he has always been even when the going was good, but now it’s just another thing. If you hold out your finger, it can measure Souleymane’s neck. Even his tiny trousers look like baggy that sweet sixteens were.

Before embracing the SDF revolution, Souleymane was Director of Personnel at SONARA. Need we waste time here to guess on the salary of a SONARA director? Just imagine any figure, then exaggerate it, and you’ll still not be far from the figure. Simply said, the man be dey he fine.

Then he joined this thankless thing called the SDF and at its maiden convention in Bamenda in May 1992, became 1st vice chairman. He had signed his death warrant. Not long after, Souleymane was returned to his ministry of origin (a euphemism for sack from SONARA).

From millions per month at SONARA, he had to begin managing with less than 300,000frs which would, in a couple of years, be rendered useless by devaluation and two salary cuts. That meant in one year, Souleymane’s pay slip couldn't sum up to what he earned in one month at SONARA.

All of that didn’t matter. He had embraced the revolution and had to face the music. If Cameroon would change at the end of the day, a few years of pain won’t be too much a price to pay. But was Cameroon changing or was it heading towards change?

The stolen victory of 1992 had come and gone, failed attempts at forcing the Biya regime to effect meaningful change on the constitution and reform the electoral law had brought more frustration and dampened hopes for eventual change.

While SDF militants viewed the Biya regime with disdain for standing in the way of their progress, internal developments were rendering the SDF less accomodating.

To make a long story short, Souleymane had the “misjudgement” of taking his responsibilities as leader of a certain opinion within the party to correct derailments at the helm of the party.

By that time the wrong thing was happening within the party unknown to the madding crowd of militants. The intolerance we see today had germinated and quickly taken root. By mid-1990s 8.2 had already felled a few.

The ill-feeling among party cadres was so strong that there were apparent simmers and a determination by progressive forces to put a stop to the drift.

Fearful of the consequences, conservative forces within the party became reluctant to hold an elective convention long scheduled for Yaounde. Just like now.

It is hard to imagine that the Colonel who sent his militants to the battle front is still free and is even granting interviews to the Press. Why did he send his so called vanguard to confront the Muna sdf knowing very well that the potential for violence was real? Why was he not in Bamenda? Can he produce copies of the letters he wrote to the administration or Police warning of possible clashes with the other sdf supporters? And even if the administration did not take action, was he right to take the laws into his hands? What this retired Colonel is saying is anonymous to a situation where Paul Biya sends troops to defend Bakassi and when violence erupts in the course of them doing their assigned duty, he then turns and says he is not involved. I am of the opinion that the so called Colonel is directly responsible for the death in Yaounde. He cannot prove that the militants he assigned to "protect" the sdf headquarters were not armed. Moreover he showed them where to get arms and kill anybody who stood on their way. This guy should be in prison while investigations continue.

BITTER AND PAINFUL MOMENTS!!!!!!!!!

The path to the unitary state of Cameroon began in 1959 with a difference of views expressed between the Premier of Southern Cameroons and the Prime Minister of Cameroun at the UN. Addressing the General Assembly, Premier Foncha of Southern Cameroons stated that he preferred a federal system of government in the event of Reunification. Also speaking at the United Nations in February 1959, the Prime Minister of Cameroun, Ahmadou Ahidjo, stated that the people he led desired Reunification and that he had taken note of Foncha's statement. Nevertheless, the people of Cameroun did not wish to impose a unitary system (which he called integration) on their brothers under British administration by the sheer weight of numbers. However, if the Northern and Southern Cameroonians desired Reunification, the people of Cameroun were ready to discuss the method of achieving it with them on an equal footing.

WHO WAS THE REAL BETRAYER??WHAT LESSONS 2DAY?

The views of Augustin Ngom Jua, Foncha's deputy, were representative of the Kamerun National Democratic Party (KNDP) as a whole. He considered that Southern Cameroons should first sever its links with Nigeria and become an independent state before opening negotiations for Reunification on a federal basis. Consequently, he was determined to make Integration and Secession the sole issues in the plebiscite. Thus, when Foncha was pressured at the UN in September 1959 to compromise his position by agreeing to substitute Reunification for Secession in the plebiscite, Jua and his closest collaborators seriously considered replacing Foncha as Leader of the KNDP. This was symptomatic of a more general unease. The UN's decision to exclude Secession from the plebiscite was, for the most part, badly received in Southern Cameroons where it flew in the face of popular expectations. The majority of petitioners condemned the restriction of the plebiscite propositions to Integration and Reunification and demanded a third option that would provide for a separate Southern Cameroons State, preferably with the Commonwealth membership. Some of them threatened to sabotage the plebiscite if Secession was not made part of it or if it was not cancelled in favour of a separate Southern Cameroons State. These protests, pleas and threats struck no responsive chord at the UN, and the clamour against the plebiscite options subsequently became more vocal and widespread

I fear history is about to repeat itself . (1)Can we afford to be fooled twice?
(2)Can we learn from our mistakes our those of fahters?
(3)Do we anglophones actually know our borders today?
(4)Do realise we are just marking time on the same spot?

For those who love the TRUTH!

I find it unacceptable and too funny for people trying to blame Col. NGAFOR & Chairmain FRU NDI for the death of Mr. DIBOULE. The Colonel had also granted an interview in The Herald of Wednesday May 31 - June 01, 2006. You all should read it. It does not need to be translated or interpreted, it in English!

The genesis of this death: Mr. Ben MUNA & Co. wanted to hold an SDF convention in Yaounde. Remember, these people are no longer members of the SDF! And since they are no longer members of the SDF, they have no right to SDF properties let alone using her secretariat. Also, the administration had long said NO to any gathering whatsoever in the name of SDF from May 26 to May 28 in Yaounde. A few days to May 26, the SDF hierachy had informed the administration of the intention our former dissidents to organise an illegal convention in Yaounde in the name of the SDF whereas there is a legal convention of the SDF billed for the same day in Bamenda.

Knowing the government very well, the SDF was right to send people (Vanguards) to prevent whosoever from using her secretariat for the said illegal convention. The one million dollar question is what was Mr. DIBOULE (a resident in Yaounde) doing at the secretariat all night long? BenF, Mukete et al, where were the forces of law and order when they had been alerted by the SDF and her former dissidents of a possible confrontation?

I do not believe in killing people to settle political scores. However, I want to blame the assasination of Mr. DIBOULE SQUARELY on the administration and Mr. Ben MUNA et al. I even want this matter to go to court so that the likes of Ben MUNA & the administration can be exposed. Mr. Ben MUNA et al even kidnapped delegates from the Centre, South & North heading to Bamenda via Yaounde (SDF secretariat) to boost their so-called convention.

Well Teribobs, I am not on the net to search for jobs! Am employed! I have realised that a lot people visit The Post website. People like you are misinforming them especially the maestro of fiction - Mukete. And so I am here to tell truth & nothing but the truth! What I would tell you guys is that you people should form your political party & forget about the SDF. No court even a kangaroo court would give you people the SDF and her logo - I know you guys are thinking of June 22. Far from that, the judgement of April 24, didn't say Mr. NGWASIRI is the one to manage the SDF. Though controversial, it said both NEC & NAC were illegal since April 2003, and so its decisions too are illegal. Unfortunately and with the complicity of a large segment of the Cameroonian Press, you guys started saying that SDF has been handed on a platter of gold to Mr. NGWASIRI. If you are in Yaounde, go and read the judegement at the Mfoundi High Court. Maybe you guys didn't know that the judegement was suspended (stay of execution) and appealed against. That is why we were able to hold our convention in Bamenda.

A controversial individual like Mr. Ben MUNA will never beat the peoples' spirit - SDF. He should go back & revive UNAFAS and start uniting Africans beginning from Ngyen-Mbo!

I'll be back.

Greetings to the forum. Just want to advice those who write long contributions. I am very certain about the fact that not more than 50% of the readers do read your messages. That was my point of view.
Thanks

Vally

Knganko,Atangha is an ass hole,big mouth for nothing.

Mukete,boy do not worry about fru ndi's supporters, they are getting the message it is bitter but they are painfully swallowing.
I can assure you that i was very surprise to fine sdf members in yaounde with some of your stuff printed from the postnewsline,they might not have the money to sit down write and read,but they can afford to print them and read.Continue the good gospel,you can't hide any thing good.

Benb,one of the reasons why fru ndi abondoned the struggle for joly ride with cpdm,is seeing the likes of souleymane,in the nineties we all knew the journey would be difficult,fru ndi was busy preaching this in rallies,but what he failed to do was developed a party strategy to compensate his disciples,those profs,Dr,directors, chief of service,principals,headmasters etc, who were sacrifing,turning down promotions,and sticking for the party must be look after if you can't in the short run,then leadership must be very very clean to continue the struggle.

Abandoning these technocrats and dinning with the devil,cpdm, was too much of an insult from fru ndi,there was bound to be revolt from the rank and file.
Another handicap with fru ndi is his level of perception and ability to strategise,you do not run a political party by only organising rallies and telling people what you can not do long term,time will always defeat you,as fru ndi is realising,you must keep long term party techonocrats to move forward,you must even at time refuse humiliating them by discipling them in private.

Some would ask me how does he compensate his disciples?when he is not in power.Share the little.In the late Nineties,Nelson Mandela gave the sdf $5 million US,if i am not mistaken the money ended being a private donation to fru ndi,i have personally waited for private audited account of the sdf over the years to no avail,even during the bamenda convention i have ask folks to say something still to no avail,fru ndi can not keep shying away from this,it only further raised unanswered questions.Even in his just ended bamenda convention he still shy away from finances only to tell delegates the sdf problem started from subvention and donations,does he think people don't know what they are doing?

I must admit i have never been a fan of Ben Muna,in democracy you do not kill but plan to keep away the enemy,Ben Muna has won something out of fru ndi's stupidity, this might long term cause the sdf dearly.The two fighters are from the NW it is not a good omen, for even among the delegates in yaounde the NW has dominated for too long.The sdf is a national party and wants power she must have a national philosohpy,we can hide from this.Muna got the day because he was the best of all the options available on the day,he need to prove himself,even though he is too elitist for the sdf,but what do you do that's democracy you give people the chance.Muna has to clean that image quickly,now that he's got the chance you never know,lets watch.

Unfortunately at the moment there is no reliable candidates from out of the NW that can do the trick,the only candidate i still look up to is prof Asonganyi,i still do not have confidence in lots of the bamileki up there within the sdf,they have not been tried and tested,they might completely damaged the situation.But we seriously need somebody neutral to limit the conquences of this historical split.

Some might say why this Asonganyi all the time,yes,he did not live the sdf because cpdm bought him over but because he saw Mbah ndam/Fru ndi eating at his expense,he was doing the work and they were eating.When he protested the badly used art 8.2 came out.

BenB,

I really feel sorry for the Souleymane person,such a loss he incured. However, take note that true party stewardship centers on ideological conviction.
Also when you join a struggle like that of the SDF especially at that moment of heat,it`s synonymous to going to a battle front. You hope more for victory, but a defeat might just be waiting for you.
Souleymane, isn`t the most unfortunate person the SDF registered, there are those who even lost their lives in Kumba, Bamenda,Muyuka etc.The martyr title is too heavy for him to bear.
Finally you didn`t say if he was kicked out by ART 8:2
Let me quote you: "By mid-1990s 8.2 had already felled a few"
Please name them and do not forget to elaborate the motives which led to the application of 8:2.
Man, we talk facts here,This time,I`ll kindly ask you to say the facts rather than taking people in a no destination ship.
If everybody were to start crying for Souleymane like you do, then nobody will think of joining a political party.
I repeat people are frustrated by the general stagnation of Cameroon and it has only little to do with the SDF. We have a country that has been stagnant for two decades like Ni Nku says and every part, every entity is feeling it. People are frustrated by their ambitions joining the parties they felt it would be an easy ride. So disappointed the positions and money is not entering, fingers are been pointed at all directions. But like they say; When you point a finger at somebody,four of your fingers are point towards you.

Look at this big fool of a Geerts who came here correcting people`s English,but the first time he writes more than ten lines,he completely disgraces himself.Here him,"what this retired Colonel is saying is anonymous
to.....".Next time put it this way,"What this retired Colonel is saying is synonymous
to..." Readers should excuse me for pointing this out to this blind bard who placed my name here one day at the top of those who write bad English.I warned him that i love being mean when slighted by nitwits,so he should know there are more darker days ahead for him

Watesih,
I am not sure that Geerts is the author of that article.May be Momo wrote it and used his/her name to disparage him/her.

Not only is the English deplorable,but the ideas do not reflect someone who went to school. How can somebody be sent to prison before his crime is still being investigated? May be she/he wanted to talk of detain!!!

His/her first posting has just comfirmed where he/she belongs,giving the reasons why we were being insulated.This shows that he/she is a big coward;he/she could not face our ideas and resorted to insults on the pretext that our English was bad.
I stongly encourage him/her to stay on.

Francis Njinjoh,
That was a timely reaction. Novelists will read the novels they write on this forum. I wonder if the time they spend writing short stories doesn't affect their productivity at work. At least BenB is writing sense and I know he must be writing from a well equipped office so he is at ease. Category E secretaries like Atangha, Samleyin, Watesih and co spend all the time telling authentic SDF militants to go and form another party.


Fon Lawrence and co, I think you need deliverance. You have been bewitched. Tell your cohort Akoson to start fasting and praying for your deliverance.

Watesih

Teribobs,
You are just doing what a youngman should not do;relinquishing your manhood to another person.So the analysis of the heated political debate in Cameroon now should centre around BenF being the intellectual of the century,our being grade 3 teachers and category E secretaries.Please
this disgrace of yours should not be carried to the face of the world.In this forum ,i always forwarn people who erroneosuly think they can shout some of us down and make us stop bringing to the fore the dubiousity of our leaders.We have had victims here before you like Michael who dispeared into the thin air out of shame.
What Michael did with Mukete is exactly what you are doing with BenF.While he sings others praises ,you a young man who should be independent of your ideas sings his praises.We have incessantly told you that we also want to read from you,but instead of enlightening Cameroonians about the situation back home,you pretend to come to the rescue of BenF when he is put to task.If
you are the same person playing out the impersonation you people excel in,then you are just waisting your share time.Your catcalls bring nothing to the political debate in Cameroon now.When you see your master BenF avoiding me,its because he knows that he is not what he wants to pass for.Let him choose any political topic of his liking in Cameroon and engage me in an open debate,then you will see what lies telling can bring to a man`s life.Teribobs,
your master BenF said two days ago ,that he knows what is right in Cameroon,but that he is just writing to offend certain sensibilities.So what does this tell you about his mind and style? Of course biased and subjective! Nobody forces me to write,Fru Ndi cannot even try and i have practically no contact with him,so why should i be writing to offend people rather than telling the truth.Your master BenF knows i`m here and whenever i kick against his ideas,he always melts away,because he knows his lies cannot stand the taste of time.He keeps on waisting his time cutting articles from the Messager iciccenet.com to buttress
his lies here.Le Messager now is not different from Cameroon Tribune.Le Messager
,La Nouvel Expression are out to fight for friends and brothers either thrown out of the SDF or living in France and trying to fake everything like their French masters.
But the SDF will live on.This party was not created by newspapers and for newspapers.
By constantly cutting and pasting articles from this web site,which is greatly subsidised by Ben Muna,BenF always thinks that he is bringing in the scoop here.That is laughable,because inundating an English speaking forum with articles written by French speaking pimps really show how people can sell their birth right.I`ve not been reading articles from the Postnewsline on the French speaking web site some of us here contribute to.What can we read in the Messager that we cannot read here in the Post? Why are we then contributing here ,instead of going over to Le Massager and enjoying its "Omniscience".
