Nkemngu, you carry nose like he-goat wey e want smell woman goat ye lass!!!!!

anyA

mr Martin, you are a big fool.

Tayong(Copenhagen)

No time for old crooks.

Elvis Tataw

i personally thinks you are making a fool of yourself however what ever decisions you make is for your own good.people like you should not be listened to because you have clearly shown to us that you are fighting for your stomach.i would have really applaud you if you would have resigned from the SDF(for whatever reasons) and from outside making your voice heard without acctually joining the CPDM.well hope you are having good time with your appointment since that is what you want.

kas

This man don choup sayer. He is not fighting for any good for the people of Cameroon.Even a child will know that you are looking for something good for yourself not even for your own children. When CPDM will die we will see which of the party you will join then. When you were first in CPDM why did you not get this appointment? Know that you got this post just because they want you to tell them more about SDF.

Fon  Lawrence

This Man call Martin Nkemngu is a disgrace who is shameless.

"He said he quit because the SDF has been derailed from its original mission of liberating Cameroonians from the socio-economic and political impasse."
From the quotation above,the question I want to ask this greedy man is,Who first brought Cameroonians to the socio- economic and political impasse? Is it not the same CPDM that you have decamped to? What an irony?The fool no longer reasons again

"Thus, the leadership of the SDF has betrayed and compromised the struggle for democratic change in Cameroon"
Which change is this monster talking about again? Is he insane? He is accusing the SDF of dictatorship and talking of democratic change against who or he is indirectly telling us that the ruling CPDM is dictatorial?.Readers,please help me because I can´t discern anything anymore.

"He said he did not want to be part of what he called the hypocritical macabre in the SDF, in which the leadership dines and wines with the CPDM regime at night, only to condemn them during the day"

Nkemngu,let me tell you that one who steals in the night,at least still has an ego to defend compare to a shameless dog like you who damps all consequences and decide to go looting in the day.Remember that an armed robber like you who defies all odds to go looting in the day is ready to kill anyone on his way.Hence,if at all some dine with the CPDM at night,there are far far better than you because they atleast know the CPDM to be evil;reasons why they "do it in the night" since they still have an ego to defend.

Teribobs

Folks,
Open your eyes. All of this decamping, crying aloud from inside by top ranking militants of the SDF should help and open your eyes. You are still blind. All these guys cannot be wrong. There is something seriously wrong going on. I salute all those writing from SDF held offices at the National Assembly. I can understand how you are protecting your jobs. Keep it up!. Look at how some of them are going to react after this write-up. From their fruits you can know them.
SDF is dead. Period!
Watesih, Fon Lawrence, Samleyin and cohorts over to you.

I am very happy that Mr. Nkemngu says there is freedom of speech in the CPDM. Please, somebody should convey this message to him if he is not familiar with this website.


Mr. Nkemngu:

Write a letter to Biya (and make the letter public) and ask him the following questions:

(i) why is it that there are no tarred roads to Lebialem despite his 24-year tenure as president?

(ii) Why is Ekok a slum and ghetto despite the fact that it is the only town in Cameroon without a seaport that generates huge amounts of customs duty?

(iii) Why is Muyuka still a subdivision even though resources from Muyuka generate more income for the country than resources from Mbalmayo, Akonolinga, and Bafia combined?

(iv) Why have Ekona Research and IRA Bambui been relegated to gardens instead of the top research institutions they are supposed to be?

(v) Why has Yaounde two public universities when Bamenda which has some of the best secondary schools and high schools in the country has none?

(vi) What happened to Tiko and Bali airports?, Cameroon Bank? Marketing Board?

(vii) Where did the Post Office savings of hard-working peasants go and how come no one has been held responsible?

(viii) With a population of 289 million, the USA has 15 cabinet positions, with a population of just over 15 million, Cameroon has 60 cabinet positions how come?

(ix) When shall biya come clean about the CFA billions he took from SCB? He should respond to Messy Messy.

(x) Instead of rationing electricity because of the insufficiency of the Sanaga why can't Yoke powercam be rehabilitated?

Mr. Nkemngu, use your suddenly gained free speech to ask these questions publicly and furnish the answers in a public manner.


We are waiting!

Bugiba

Teribobs,
Who the hell are you talking about when you say top ranking SDF militants are decamping from the SDF? Do you mean Nkemngu?, Ngwasiri?, Ben Muna? or who else? You should be out of your mind.Take note , the SDF is transforming gradually and very soon parasites and scavangers like those you are thinking about will no longer have a place in the party. Yes, let them find refuge in the CPDM or where ever.
I doubt if you ever knew at any point in your entire life that the SDF was alive before declaring it now dead. Don't forget this; that the SDF is not for these traitors who are always shopping around in yaounde to sell their brothers and sisters for their own puckets.

Please also help me to tell Nkemngu that dirty business with those guys over there could as well still be a risky thing as they could fill your stomack but soon turn around to use you as a sacrificial lamp, especially if you demonstrate beyond doubts (as he seems to have done) that you have an unlimted quest for money. By this I mean land you in Condengui.
I know the SDF is a rallying party but,it is imperative that greed should be flushed out because it is a seriouse threat to the party.

Bye Nkemngu and CU when you retire.You say this is when? Was this not one of the main reasons for your move? I mean so as to cheat young cameroonians by sticking on when your retirement is due. Yes the CPDM will give you a couple of years more but at the end you will still come to meet us here at home. Your family should be ashamed of you now. I would not take if my father was this rediculous. Forget it, God forbid.

LeBAMS

Congrats to Mr Nkemngu for speaking out.The SDF is a regional and tribalistic party.Please Cameroonians,leave that party to the Graafi folks to settle their scores.There is no true politician in the SDF.It is full with iliterates and the few who are a bit intelligent,take advantage.That is why,[the Bamenda folks] have not true minister in the present Biya's cabinet.Liars.

Watesih

Teribobs,
Deja vu et entendu!

Klemenceau

LeBams

Do you think trying to promote tribalism here will help to bring down the SDF? You are a fool. As a matter of fact you are so stupid to coin the SDF as a Bamenda party. Empty vessels like you, Teribobs etc will always try to cause divide in the SDF because of selfish reasons. What visionaries you are.
Terribobs will always wait for people to write for him to drop in two lines of non sense. Your master the creative writer BenB is still to come up with his parts I, II, III and episodes. Hope you will chip in two lines after he must have written. I never knew Cameroon had such creative, imaginative and fiction writers like BenB and the infamous Mukete. You better make good use of your talents else were because trying to run down the SDF is fighting a lost battle.
Mr Nkemngu it is good you have found real freedom now. Let's see how you will make good use of this new found freedom. I don't wish you anything bad but be careful because you might soon say had I known.
Shalom
Klemenceau.

Why I Weep for Asonganyi (I)


They had to go for Asonganyi’s head, those whose game plan he was going to obstruct. You here them already trying to explain why they are doctoring lists of candidates for appointment by Ni John after he would have been declared re-elected as Chairman. They’ve similarly already doctored lists of delegates who should “vote” in the convention.

Now, you’ll begin to understand why they wanted to kill Asonganyi. Poor fellow. And now we’ll see how serious we are when we make noise about the need for an independent electoral commission and computerization of voters’ lists.

You see that man Tazoacha Asonganyi? He isn’t only thick-skinned literally. He is thick-skinned by character and has a big heart. He is a man of character. As secretary general of the SDF he knew he was the heart of the party. Just as the National Advisory Council (NAC) is the custodian of the party’s ideals, values and objectives as originally conceived, the secretary general is the memory, monitor and standard bearer of the party.

As book-keeper of the party, Asonganyi knew that it was his responsibility to keep the party on track. He did that. For over 12 years, he kept his nose deep inside the SDF’s documents, understanding them and implementing them on a daily bases. Amid the rough times the party was going through, Asonganyi handled the books and kept order within the SDF in a dignified way that maintained the party afloat and helped it weather storms.

Very thoughtful, calculative and discreet, Asonganyi observed and understood the depth of the problem of the party. Without ruffling hairs, he made his point and without raising his voice he defended his point. With this he could keep his cool and weather many storms and where others chickened out easily, Asonganyi’s thick skin kept him resistant and “immune”.

With his discreet approach to politics, he succeeded to negotiate the much heralded reconciliation forum for the party in September 2004 that brought useful human capital and so strengthened the party and gave it an "honourable" performance though defeated in the presidential election even after many Cameroonians would normally have sanctioned the SDF for breaking up the Coalition.

You can’t find any better qualities than that for the secretary general of a party like the SDF. But we hated him for upholding values, because those values shame us. So we wanted him out. Now we have him gone. We can already see the trouble staring us and there is no Asonganyi to come to the rescue.

I’ll be back.

People,
Never mind, Nkemngu is so greedy that the dinner he had with the CPDM at night was becoming insufficent for his stomach so he had to decamp and get breakfast, lunch and dinner with the CPDM. He has simply accept the fact that they(SDF) dined at night with the CPDM and condenmed it during the day. Good news, Nkemngu, those who use to argue that the SDF doesnot dine with the CPDM can now attest there has been some open confession today.When i said here sometime ago that i was disappointed with the policitians in cameroon people sure thought i was being over critical Now tell me what u think about oligarchs, i mean politicians.

Yaounde court adjourns SDF case indefinitely

The SDF case in the Yaounde court has been adjourned indefinitely. Joseph Mbah Ndam, SDF parliamentary group leader and lawyer for Fru Ndi, refused to have the same judge Simon Sone who previously passed judgement against them to handle the matter this time.

The president of the court called Mbah Ndam and Ngwasiri's lawyer into his office to get them to agree on a a new panel of judges, but both refused.

In a ruling on 24 April, magistrate Sone ruled in favour of Ngwasiri agreeing that NAC under Ngwasiri was now in charge of managing the SDF because the mandate of NEC and Fru Ndi had expired since 2003.

He thus cancelled all decisions taken by NEC since then, which of course included the dismissal of Ngwasiri and Asonganyi from the party and the convening of a convention for the SDF in Bamenda.

Proof of Fru Ndi's defiance of the court order is the most recent sanction by the suspended NEC dismissing three anti-Fru Ndi militants Ben Muna, candidate for post of Chairman; Odette Ngatoum, NEC member and member of the SDF communication team; and Zamboué Pascal, Centre Provincial Chairman who successfully frustrated efforts by Fru Ndi loyalists to participate in the 20th May march past on behalf of the suspended NEC to proof to Biya that they were still in charge and he can continue dealing with them. Zamboué's success so annoyed Fru Ndi/Mbah Ndanm loyalists that they decided to slam 8.2 on him and rest.

Observers say the acts by Fru Ndi and those loyal to him show signs of pannick even though they are deceiving the public that all is well simply because their planned convention in Bamenda may hold.

SDF militants and other members of the public are wondering why Mbah Ndam bothers to go to court on behalf of Fru Ndi if they won't respect court decisions. They say Mbah Ndam should simply forget about the court and ignore its decision if they don't recognise it.

This man is evil. This is the oligarch that used to put on all latest designs of jumpa. He is now dressing in suit, the jersey of `equipe nationale de sibap` as if there is anything reasonable he can contribute to Cameroonians. Just a numbskull miserable jew. If the SDf has maintained a dictatorial trend just for two years as he is supposing, what about the dictatorial trend in the CPDM for this period of 24 years that has driven the country to this down throdden bottom line. You know your bounty in the CPDM. I swear you know that you will never run your mouth the way you used to do in the SDF. You know where you will finally rest if you do the undo in that junta you are seeking refuge. You are an ass hole Nkemngu. What is it that you have been bashing in the cpdm for all this years. Why did you simply choose to join the Cpdm in broad day light rather than take a contructive move from within or as a relinquished social democrat and try to change the leadership. An abdicated opposition member could do better than selling your soul to this devil. You care very little about your legacy and the fate of posterity. You are a belly politician who cares very little weather people condemn your actions. Imbecile of the first order. Do you think telling us that you will go for retirement next year will buffer your actions. you have shown to us all that you were out for money rather than social justice. I don`t really blame you. You just got entangled in the web of cleansing. If we dont get rid of dirts like you, the future of our party wont be that bright. Eat your soyer in tranquility but keep it in mind that your political career have been decimated to almost nothing.

Terribobs,
you seem to be a jerk. You could not write anything because your mentor Ben B aka Ben Muna hasnt written about why he mind or do not mind people. Tell him that if he is Muna he should go to the political arena and leave this forum for commentators. He will never paint black and it comes out white. Tell him that his father soiled everything and we do not learn life`s lesson twice because we all got only one life to live. Y`all will never EVER succeed in dividing the SDF. Just never. I thought this Momo alias mumu guy is busy preparing for the Yaounde convention. Mr dual identity give us your own contribution at least for once rather than spending your whole life in praising people with two eyes and a brain like you.

Why I Weep for Asonganyi (II)


People have been told to leave Fru Ndi’s SDF alone. He SDF wey he make am, suffer dey sotey. Now oda pipo dem wan cam take am. Ni no fit gree!! No one day! Even if SDF finish sotey only Ntarikon ward remain, even if na only Ni he Ntarikon compang remain for SDF, e go still fine if only say na Ni be chairman. No problem. We be hear say Sofa Don Finish but e be lek say Sofa Dey Front. Sofa plenti for before, tam no dey! But as na Ni be chairman we dey we dey da so.


Asonganyi is a man of his word. His party was vocal in calls for the computerization of the voters’ register leading to the 2004 presidential election. That was a compromise in the face of stiff resistance from Biya against calls for the creation of an independent electoral commission.

We all remember that the SDF boycotted the 1992 parliamentary elections because of the absence of fair electoral laws that would ensure free and transparent elections. The outcome is now history. But we were somehow still proud of that decision because it showed our resolve to fight to the end to have an independent commission and have voters’ lists computerized to ensure that one man had only one vote.

Today the Commonwealth has pushed the Biya government to sign a deal to create an independent electoral commission and we are quick to boast that we (SDF) fought for that.

Asonganyi is a man of his word; a man of values. As secretary general of a great party, a party that makes a lot of noise, Asonganyi knew that the SDF had to march words with action. He knew that we should teach by example to shame the devil – the CPDM.

If we successfully computerized our voters’ register (list of delegates to vote in the convention) and held free and fair election in the convention, that could shame the Biya regime. Then we’d have the moral authority to shout on treetops calling for electoral transparency.

When we come back, we’ll discuss how the mere idea of computerization of list of delegates to conventions was like juju had entered the room. Evil people were terrified because that would expose their diabolic plans to rig elections.

That sent those people (you know them) using a hammer to kill even a fly, leading us to the crisis we find the party in today.

He who pays the piper calls the tune. How much is Mkengu the piper worth? How much credibility is he worth after chopping off his nose to spite his face?When will he realise that he has committed political suicide?When will he come to terms with the fact that he will for the rest of his life be seen as a "decamper", a traitor - unreliable and expendable like toilet paper? My brother,trust me, it is not going to be easy for you and -I dare say - for your children because their dad will be seen as having sang with the angels and, at the twilight of his life, now communes with the devil.What a way to end it all. It is never over until it is over!!

BenB

Why I Weep for Asonganyi (III)

Asonganyi began compiling and computerizing lists of SDF delegates in preparation for the coming elective convention. Little did he know he was playing with fire. If Asonganyi computerized the voter’s register, it would stand in the way of efforts by a certain click in the party to have ghost delegates (just like Biya’s ghost voters) to infiltrate the convention and vote for…

If you doubt it go to Boyo and find out why Boyo delegates to the provincial primaries were not made known while Ni John knew them. Ask yourself by what magic Jua, a two term MP from Boyo votesd by Boyo people, would lose an election without even one vote from his own constituency.

Those people rigged like fools. Leaving the loopholes so wide open for even the blind to see. The answer is that they accredited only people they had made to swear a pact of blood to vote for Ni John. That’s the type of electoral transparency we want to replace Biya’s election rigging. If we got power today will there be change? We have CHANGED change.

Asonganyi is a refined, gentleman. He knows the meaning of fairness. The stakes were high for the party. Something radical needed to be done to restore the party’s credibility. If he had to take charge with computerizing the list of delegates, he only thought is fair not to be player and march commissioner.

Asonganyi decided to withdraw from the secretary general race in order to carry on with the computerization in all neutrality. But as we’ve said before here, there are people in the party who don’t even want to see anyone set high standards for the party. Values shame them. It dwarfs them. They decided to chase Asonganyi out of the party all together. Ask yourself, my friends, man say he no want contest election, na problem again? They feared his withdrawal was a loaded tactical withdrawal and didn’t want to wait until the bomb exploded. So, 8.2!!

In our next slot, we’ll be discussing why even you won’t be so naïve as to go to a convention that has been already been rehearsed and executed beforehand, where everything you dared say there in the name of washing the party’s dirty linen IN THE HOUSE, not in PUBLIC, would be hushed down and if it went to a vote, they would “win” because, in the absence of a computerized list, they have only their people “accredited” as delegates.

BenF

BenB

Why I Weep for Asonganyi (IV)

Just a few observations before we begin the end of this Asonganyi series:

· Which province, electoral district or ward invested Elisabeth Tamanjong to run for the post of secretary general? Centre province or North West? Find the answer in the story on SDF banned from march past. They had since groomed her for the post and Asonganyi was an obstacle. Now she has to be brought in to block Kale. (They choose their people.)

· Who will finally invest candidates and validate them for elections? Remember that is the duty of NAC, sitting as the investiture committee. NAC whose members don’t need to face an election within the party, so they are not player and referee at the same time. And do you remember that Fru Ndi since overthrew Ngwasiri from that post? So though himself a candidate, Fru Ndi will be validating the candidacy of others, including those to challenge him. You bet that that Djamen man from France is a prop-up by Fru Ndi’s group to pose as a challenger so that in the end if his candidacy is validated, they’ll say, “You see? His candidacy, though irregular, was authorized thanks to Fru Ndi’s magnanimity.” In that way it will be said that it wasn’t Fru Ndi who blocked Ben Muna’s candidacy. Who will be fooled? Not you, I bet.

· If Asonganyi didn’t believe in the SDF, why didn’t he quit like Maidadi and the rest? Clearly Asonganyi was allies with the rest but he always thought the battle should be within. (Washing the party’s dirty linen in the house.) Together they fought within, but the rest got frustrated and left. Asonganyi, believing in the SDF even against the odds, stayed on just in order not to go wash the party’s dirty linen in public like the others did. He even tried the most he could to dissuade Maidadi and the rest from quitting. And even in limbo, even after 8.2, Asonganyi still shows his love for the party. He makes no damaging statements against the party. He only says what he thinks can move the party forward. He even takes up fights against the party’s enemies like he did against the declarations of CPDM’s Hon. Foju.

· Was it not within the party (in a socialist youth conference of the party) that Asonganyi exposed and challenged the Yoyo plan to give Fru Ndi absolute powers to hire and fire NEC officials? How, in doing that, did Asonganyi wash the party’s dirty linen in public?

Let’s talk about this Bangwa man. 99.9999 sense langa man looking for langa money. Forgetting the old saying that arata die na yi mop. What a bangwa man always fail to understand is, they might be so intelligent, yet lack that 0.00001 percent to complete their dominance over others.Unfortunately that’s their down fall. Grid, tribalism, self centeredness just to give you a tip of the ice burg is classic behaviours of theses people. How can someone who spent years in the opposition advocating for freedom from this barbaric government make such unfounded statements. I am not and will never be a tribalist, but when it comes to a bangwa man, bana looba nika so, there is always something to say. Examine his eye closely and what do you see? Money.
A Bangwa man is calm when you give a blind eye to their two side cutlass characteristic. They’ll go on chapiering on the right and on the left and stay in the middle, finding a point of neutrality like some one who comes out of water dry. And you wouldn’t know which side chapier where. Once you point out to them that, that is not right, they all come out of their hive and sting you in chorus like a Manawa. And that is it political prostitute, in search of what? “Nkap”. When people start making statements like graffi party etc etc.. that’s where you see the real colours of a Bangwa man. Nkemgu tried to bring his 99.999999 sense to the SDF, unfortunately he was challenged by the lack of .000001 sense and now he uses flimsy excuses to back his cross carpeting to the CPDM. Kunyam.

SDF = Sdf Don Finish

motto

Countrymen.

Could we leave the name Nkemngu just for a moment and try to ANALYSE what he has said.

Is there ANYTHING important in what ever he has said as "reasons" for Decamping and joining the CPDM?

Until we in this forum, learn to look at facts as presented and not who presents them, then we will remain in this dark period. On the other hand, we could choose to analyse "person", then what they say differently, for if we combine them as is been done above and elsewhere in this forum, then we shall be missing alot of facts and sensible things to learn about.

Could Somebody enlighten this forum on the various candidates for post of office and how their candidacy was validated? also of note, the forum will like to know various candidates for various post(now talking about the Bamenda SDF convention).

Do we just want a convention or a convention that will make meaning to the few remaining militants?

We wait for answers

We know those who come with a hidden agenda.... at one point they may claim to be neutral. But as days go by you see the true nature of their minds - the trus nature of their VERY SELF. You see sheer hatred, malice and jealousy they've nursed for a particualr person...Only God knows why??? They cry foul days to the convention and develop tactics to fool ONLY fools sympathise with them..."why I don't mind this...why I pity... that..." You all are witnesses to the fact that when an enemy comes into the house with a motive to indoctrinate my dearest fellow readers, I wouldn't know rest until I neutralise this bad intension. Like I've always made mention of, I stand for the truth. You all can bear with me that when someone has a good motive I side with them. When BenF just came into the forum and cried RECONCILIATION, I was the FIRST to talk for him. Little did I know that he'd a hidden agenda. This also happened between Mukete and I...Klemenceau, Ftroit, Watesih etc can bear me witness! I don't have grudge with anybody but I frown at the bad things they write and at the same time smile over the good ones which can contribute to meaningful change. I therefore urge all forumites not to be fooled by sponsored guys...they may be the guys themselves...who knows???

BenF,

When you write literatures void of strong arguments, who do you wanna fool? The think factory or momo et al? For your information this forum has thinkers who do not only think but they think hard. Just listen to some nonsense you wrote; "...And even in limbo, even after 8.2, Asonganyi still shows his love for the party. He makes no damaging statements against the party..." Now my question is that do you know the meaning of damaging statements?? Someone who went to the media and asked SDF militants rally behind the "original" SDF? What does that suppose to mean? Can't you reason that such a statement encourages divide in the SDF? I always admire Asonganyi and even want him back to the party but that he talked of rallying behind a faction and not RECONCILIATION is the worse mistake he's ever made since his political history. I urge him to withdraw that particular statement.

Hear you again; "...Was it not within the party (in a socialist youth conference of the party) that Asonganyi exposed and challenged the Yoyo plan to give Fru Ndi absolute powers to hire and fire NEC officials? How, in doing that, did Asonganyi wash the party’s dirty linen in public?..."
Oh my God! "I seh eh, na who you wan fool for dis forum?". Did Asonganyi not hold a press conference in Yaounde during which he made anti-party declarations? Didn't he say there were RUMOURS that Fru Ndi's "eating" soya and that he, Fru Ndi has got shady finacial dealings with Biya? Do you think that with your strong writing skill in arresting readers' sympathy you can fool them? I don't believe that anyone here sympathises with liars! That's why you can see Mukete in serious hibernation. He lacks a different approach right now. I'm just sorry for him cos his pay package has been reduced by the CPDM since he's failed woefully to deceive this forum with his fiction. I got from very reliable source that he's now at a trance with the CPDM and vowed not to resurface until "dem add e small thing un top weh dem kut'am". I'm sure they'll dance to his tune since the "dough" is there - tax payers' money. Moreso, he'd really held this forum spellbound.

Listen to your shit again;"...If you doubt it go to Boyo and find out why Boyo delegates to the provincial primaries were not made known while Ni John knew them. Ask yourself by what magic Jua, a two term MP from Boyo votesd by Boyo people, would lose an election without even one vote from his own constituency..." Do you want us to tell you again that as an MP Jua has never worked for his people? Who do you wanna deceive? Let me just remind you of what happened in Boyo in the last primaries: Listen to Fru Ndi's campaign speech which Jua couldn't deny and tell me whether you would've voted Jua if you were a delegate. Infact, the 7 votes he got were by chance. He doesn't even deserve it. Before I get to this speech why has Jua not gone on air to say that he was cheated? You're the first to cry for others! Keep crying!....Listen to chairman Fru Ndi ;"The SDF Chairman touched on issues that portrayed his rival as an obstinate MP. Hear him: "In my capacity as National Chairman of the SDF, I assigned SDF MPs to follow-up SDF activities in the provinces and bring back reports to be read at National Executive Committee, NEC meetings.
But when I assigned him (Jua) to tour the Centre Province he told me he was going to meet with one Minister for his contracts. Instead of taking the lead to go where I assigned him, he came and gave me FCFA 100.000 to re-assign some other person to do his job. Is this a man you can elect as Chairman?" Fru Ndi asked. Fru Ndi said after two years, Jua has not presented results of his assignment to Mfoundi Division and other parts of the Centre Province.

Now tell me, whether you would've voted Jua even as he did not bother to back himself up after all these allegations. Tell me...or do you wanna say that he was denied to make his manifesto? Nonsense!

I don't want to dwelve into all the POOR and NAIVE reason you've been posting in the name of contributions. Just this for now. Before you write, think that forumites THINK and THINK HARD. You'll go back as you came - not long from now!


Rexon, I thought the May 20th celebration wouldn't have taken place. What happened? Serbia's up there now. Where're we??? You guys should better do something before some of us start cursing the movement.


I love positive thinkers.

Don't go away. Be right back!

Martin may be a betrayer, a spy, a political prositute but he has touch some points in sdf party that need examination. Dictatorship have hijack the sdf for more than a decade. The present leadership have reach her level of incompetence. Party head dinned with government in the night. The good ideals of the party formation have been covered. It is time for sdf members and world wishers to reason with their heart rather than their head. Our goal is to unite cameroonians and rule rather than divide cameroonians and rule. By doing the later we shall never have our goal. I don't thing the present leadership is bad, however it is time to change hands. let's try new idologies.

Ashwell Molaba

As we stay eating our week old stale bread of rubbish comments from the likes of Akoson and the Mukete's, I wonder what poor English-Speaking Cameroonians are thinking of this SDF-debacle. I suspect they all know it is taking us no where. And as for us the supposed intellectuals, we do not even realise the futility of discussing such a topic that is relatively inconsequential to the plight of our own people. Of course the supporters of tribalism like Ebai James and the recently declared tribalist Akoson have hijacked this forum to denigrate Bangnwa people or Bayangi people as they see fit. At the end of the day, how does that serve us? Some cry foul, when their favourite candidates are criticised but immediately turn around and pour venom on other people. And we all can pretend that we are emancipating our people by teaching them what rubbish we have learnt in insults. Atomic bombs and all sorts of medical procedures to wash people's brains. Where are we going to? Alan Patton, Cry the Beloved Country. As long as the likes I see in this forum continue to voice their base emotions shameless, Cameroon will remain in those dark ages it finds herself. Only people like these can be manipulated and subjugated by the morons in la republique.

BTW! Neba Funiba: Excellent Suggestions. Hope more could think like you.

Akoson,
Let me ask some few question while getting ready to live for cameroon, my next mail will be coming from home.

Why is Fru ndi not willing to let others do the organisation and moderation of the cobvention?why is he doing all?why has the computerasition of the convention delegates a taboo topic to fru ndi.

I have just read the press conference Asonganyi gave again in yaounde.He said rumours that the sdf party hierachy is dealing with the cpdm is news to him but that he cannot refused the allegations because he has no knowledge.

Asonganyi said he will not be standing again for the post of SG, but will stay and complete his term to the next convention.That he will computerised the convention list.

Fru ndi is really not popular,the Fru ndi of yesterday is not the Fru ndi of today.Most sdf members know this in private,free and fair election Fru ndi can not win.

Who do we want to lead the party?ANY COMMITTED MEMBER, if fru ndi the book seller can lead the party for 16 years i beleive others can it does not matter who.The problem is the constitution and it applicability,respect of party rules,get a powerful NAC,with this he who leads the party will have to watch out.

That Fru ndi is the only best candidate is history.The party has to move on with or without Fru ndi.

Vally

Ebai James

Ngum, Come out of your shell. We are no more in the soviet era or present day North Korea. Write objective arguments rather than trouncing about the bush. Can you make sense of what you wrote?

Ateba Francis

Which Mukete?

Where is Mukete? The living, the sick or the dead. Which Mukete are you talking about?

Ashwell Molaba

Ebai James,

The resurrected pro-eminent tribalist. What connection does the Soviet Union or North Korea have with your Lebialem ideas? Do you want Ngum to join you in condemning Lebialem people? Ask him to do so without confusing yourself with Soviet era bullshit. And let me remind you, you can keep shooting your mouth and sticking those ugly feet into your mouth but at the end of the day you would remain where you are. Intellectual obscurity. When people are struggling to build a nation, when people are analysing a nations problems, morons like you show up and talk about 999.9999999. What else will you contribute to the emancipation of Cameroon? We have heard this 99.999999% percent story of yours too often. Can you tell us something else? Like how do we cure Lebialem people? Should we ship them through Akwaya (no seaport) to Nigeria; or should we drop them at Menchum Falls? Until you have something sensible to say, I suggest you keep your tribalist nonsense to yourself. But then again, you can write, your brother Akoson has taken to fancying your lovely write ups. Whatever tickles your empty skull, write.

Tita Mofaw

Interesting development!
Hahaaa.
What are "they" talking about? I know so well that it is not about me.No,it cannot be about me because they don't even know me.Ahaa.But does it really matter? Who gives a damn?
What do they really care about?

Atangana Owona

I am just an observer. Please do you think that using insults is an appropriate way of bringing your ideas forward? I wonder what will happen if ideologies/policies/laws were defended in this way in the house of commons or in congress.

Shows how backward some minds really are although we can all read and write. Sorry if anyone feel offended

Atangha

Good riddance to Ben MUNA et al! Their activities of recent have shown that they have all along been a liability, than an asset to the SDF. Like I said yesterday, and to those who know the SDF-Centre, Zamboue has destroyed what his predecessors did. Thank God we are there and we will redouble out efforts to make SDF better in the Centre province than what Zamboue met.

AS for NKEMNGU, he has nothing new to tell the world about the SDF. It is an old song that has been sung for almost two years now. We know him very well; he is just trying to justtify the unjustifiable. All I can say is that he should keep quiet and enjoy the crumbs being offered to him. No one will trust him in his new outfit, the CPDM. I hope he will be willing to come on TV to defend these new-found CPDM 'values'?

I will be back.

JTS

It is regretable that this forum has been hijacked by clowns of very low quality indeed. I think any seríous person should no longer comment on these childish, idiotic, primitive and uninformative comments posted or which are yet to be posted on this forum.

BenF, you are certainly not included in this list.

Unfulfilled Aspirations:

This is a typical example of the political frustration and discontent ushered in by the inability of our democratic process to fulfil the aspirations of the masses. In most of Sub Sahara Africa, just like in Cameroon, democracy has failed to deliver the goals it promised the masses during its re-birth in the 90s. This will ultimately culminate in a huge return of the masses to the ruling party since our shallow democratic process and the Opposition have failed to satisfy our raised hopes and aspirations. Voter apathy, a massive nonchalance and a non participatory approach in our democratic process by the masses will result in our democratic process taking one step forward and ten backwards. Economic and not political issues have gripped the minds of the masses since politics has failed, but whether economic issues can be distilled of politics is another angle of the debate. Come to think of the huge and massive turn- outs at opposition rallies and meetings characteristic of the 90s, I just wonder how many people will even boarder to attend these today.

This melodramatic story hasn’t been different in countries where elections ushered in a change at the helm, as the very problems of corruption, inertia, mismanagement of public funds, embezzlements, repression and economic exploitation still torment and stir at the masses like hunger stirring at Richard Wright. This very vicious cycle has continued with and after each election. Our people are really tired of politics, unfulfilled aspirations and empty promises, democracy or call it “democraczy” has failed them with its madness, they now need just a development-oriented and an economic empowering strategic vision from whosoever the devil in power.

Ashwell Molaba

Atangana Owana,

Two very curious names. Observe and learn. You use two houses (Commons and Congress) that are beacons of democracy. But I have a feeling you have never heard anything said in those houses. With your names, I do not want to jump into conclusions that you have no business in this forum. But may be you will observe, learn and enlighten the others. Let me give you a quote from the House of Commons: Lady MP to Prime Minister Winston Church "Sir if you were my husband, I will poison your tea." Churchill's response: "If you were my wife, I will drink it."

Is that an insult?

Akoson

Look here you thing of a person, Molaba Ashwell,

Why do you seek my notice? Can you tell this forum where I, Akoson, the SON OF AKO has ever been tribalistic? Why do you want to make a case where there isn't? What's the meaning of all this? Me and tribalism? Where did that ever happen? Look here man, you must tell this forum where and when I've ever made a tribalistic comment.

Secondarily, you talk of poor English-speaking Cameroonians. How do you mean? When we write simple English you'll be the first to cry that people are bombarding others with political terminologies. When we try to keep our field of studies out of the forum and write in clear, simple English so that your grandma can better appreciate, you have the guts to challenge the "English". NOnsense! What do you know about English? Don't you know that some of us can teach you English? Who told you that English means big words? If you don't tackle the ISSUES in your next edition, I'll NEVER respond to your querry. Idiot!


I remain the simple English writer, SON OF AKO.

If there is any comment not to read on this forum, I think it is that Ebai James. His ideas are meant for destruction. He has made a series of contributions on this forum which I have bothered to read. And each time, I find him leaving the subject of the matter to chase after shadows. What is the point over generalizing the mistake of one man to an entire tribe. Why does he remain so adamant to suggestions calling on him by readers to make more meaningful contributions. What image of yourself are you trying to put across in these tribal ridden articles? What is in your that pricks you always to fan the ember of tribalism whenever you bring ugly self to this forum? Are you really Cameroonian? Do you think Cameroon for one second? What is really your problem? Will you be happy if a person came up all the time and wrote against your tribe this way?
You may not have known that by preaching tribalism, hatred for one another, and planting discord among tribes and regions, you are in effect showing how narrow minded and "lowly educated" you are.Very few people will agree with what Nkemngu has done, but as far as I know, he does not represent the thinking and behaviour of Bangwa people. If so, tell us others who have done the same.
From your contributions, I think your best home should be in a lunatic asylum where you will be chained up and be treated by psychiatists. You are really sick. Sick of the tribalims cankerworm. This goes for you and for all those who preach tribalism on this forum either by calling the SDF a Bamenda party etc etc. As far as we have intentions to make Cameroon a better place, we must try to leave tribal sentiments in the backyard. This is a reality.

Fobete

The SDF is passing through a political revolution and in many revolutions most are wiped out. Not all will stand the test of time. if Mr Martin feels he can be satisty with the CPDM whom he has been critizing for almost a decade; good and fine, but let him remember, one day the CPDM shall reverse the clock.
Mr Martin is just saying the same story of politician, as rightly said, politics is a dirty game, unless you come out clean before one can say you are a good politician. Mr Martin, you need special prayers, to heal your body, soul and mind. I remember when i wrote my long essay on the role of Political Parties in the democratization process in Cameroon, Mr Martin greatly helped me as he sabotaged the CPDM and gave me some inside into the democratization process which the CPDM is hindering. I wonder if i met him today what will he render to me, that CPDM, has foster democracy in cameroon i mean democracy "ADVANCEE". One thing i know which i certain, that our country Cameroon, is at the cross root of change that is why you see many confused.
WOE UNTO THOSE WHO ENGAGE IN CORRUPTION; FOR THE SEASON IS FAST APPROACHING FOR ACCOUNTABILITY ON EARTH.
Peace be to Cameroon

Daniel Ewang

If fru ndi is reelected chairman of the SDF, it will be another Sad decade for Cameroon's history and front runner opposition party. Fru Ndi has nothing new to offer but his wisdom. So, please, SDF look for a middle ground person and FRU NDI please don't put your candidature, we don't want you to be like BIya who has been in power for ever. SDF must show the difference.

Ebai James

Ashwell Molaba,

Well each time my ink flows it hurts, hurts hurts and hurts you bitterly. Why because it’s the truth and it’s bitter.
This same you have tried unsuccessfully to silence me on numerous occasions using all forms of bullying and intimidation thinking that will deter me from voicing the truth. And that is the typical characteristic of a bangwa man. You claim to be university educated, but when one reads your write ups the ego to continue reading through generally dies down.
This same you tried to teach me what spectroscopic is by citing Oxford dictionary definition.
The analogy here of Soviet era and North Korea is to compare systems where coming out boldly to express your thoughts was heavily suppressed. Any criticisms in these systems were generally anonymous for safety reason. So my point was for Ngum to reveal her identity and have her say. Please put that in your head. We have to chew it each time for you to swallow. And for your info using that analogy here is based on my travelling to both places and not just reading from history books.
This same you kept saying we continue to blame this or that people with your same Menchum falls which I wonder what it’s got to do with all of these. Who has blamed who.
My dear friend, I will like to draw your attention here that, it is not written any where that this is a forum for solutions. And before you even start fumbling to source out your worthless solutions you must analyse the facts. I will continue to point out where the bugs are. No forms of intimidation will scare me.


Ngum, Stop writing one sentence.

Inconsistency is becoming a major phenomenon on this forum. What has a name got to do with what soemone has to say. Today we decry some people for being tribalistic and in our very next write up, we show those same tendencies. It would be nice to know if this forum is for a particular group of people. I say so because people here are fun of telling others they do not belong here. When we start grouping names under tribes and bunching people up into Lebans, graffi and what have you or just pointing out that a name is Atangana Owona (and by dint of that name, the person may not belong to this forum), we are being just as tribalistic as the guy who says Bangwa 99.99 sense. It is about time we discuss ideas and not tribes or names. Let us carry on with this name calling and see where it would lead us. It is really unfortunate!!!

Why I Weep for Asonganyi (V)a


The conclusion here is that within or without, washing the party’s linen in the house or in public, there is a bottom-line. A certain clique within the party has decided that YOU ARE EITHER WITH US OR AGAINST US. Just like George Bush.

And what they are saying is SDF no bi wonna. SDF na we. Na we get SDF. Wonna opinion no count. Wonna dey here na for follow, swallow and wallow. As we tok na so e mus be. If you tok ting wey we no like am da mean say you don kush de party. Just like de Gaule said La France c’est moi...

That’s why Asonganyi’s criticism of an individual is called an ANTI-PARTY statement. Do these LSEs and other big book people on this forum even think before they write? If I say for example that the head (VC, president, chairman or dean of studies) of LSE is corrupt, is it the same thing as saying LSE is a useless school? I think that these loudspeakers on this forum are a liability to the great LSE. That school should feel sorry for itself that numbskulls are using school’s name so dishonourably on this forum.

...Back to Asonganyi and washing linen in private or in public.

So, you make your point within the party, they frustrate it. You make it from outside... 8.2! because – chorus all – YOU WASHED THE PARTY’S DIRTY LINEN IN PUBLIC. No one is saying who dirtied the linen in the first place.

Ngwasiri and co know the party they created. They watch the compass and could tell how far adrift the party has been washed by the storm off its original path. They know that the party is heading for a wreck. They know that they owe it to posterity and to the people drawn to the party believing it was their freedom forum - the panacea to Cameroon's problems. They know they have to awaken the people to the dangers ahead.

They know they must carry out this fight. It will certainly be a difficult fight, because reactionary forces - people who have skeletons in their cupboards seek to kill before they are done with. It will seem to cost the party a lot but like smelting in the blast furnace can testify, the fire only burns out bad stuff.

At the end of this process, whichever way it twists and turns, those who mean well for the SDF will bring out the best for the party after fake metal would have melted during smelting in the blast furnace.

We only wished Ngwasiri and co would let it be, just let it be so we don’t have a split (a home split for that matter) within our darling party.

We expressed the fear here that at this rate even one-and-one-hundredth conventions (that is one giant convention in Bamenda and another that groups only Ngwasiri, Muna and their families in Muna’s chambers) would spell doom for the party.

Why I Weep for Asonganyi (V)b

Now it looks like there isn’t even one-and… conventions. At the rate things are going, with the information about lists of candidates and lists of delegates being doctored by one province and being re-doctored by another province just so that we have something that resembles a convention, it looks like even the GREAT Bamenda convention won’t be up to ONE convention.

(Where does Elisabeth Tamanjong militate? Yaounde or Bamenda? Wonna tell me, SDF don crase?)

So we may end up with ONE-QUARTER convention in Bamenda and maybe NOTHING in Yaounde (clap) or one-and-one-hundredth convention in Yaounde. That’s where our SDF is today.

Those who can pray and fast like Akoson, LSE should begin a three-day fast for the SDF as the last three days count down to doomsday. By the grace of God, the party will survive the grip of evil people. All say Amen!!

Beginning doomsday-3, we will be explaining the numbers we attributed to each SDF personality in the series and what the future holds for the party. Siga Asanga’s tormented spirit haunts this party. Asonganyi’s tall personality will perpetually shame us.

Why are you so shameless? Must you exhibit your ignorance, bad english, lack of education in public? What is the excitement about? When this forum did not exist, how many articles did any of you contribute to the post or any other newspaper be it in Cameroon or abroad?. Please if you are anglophones then this is a disgrace. The quality of english you write does not show that you are anglohones. Some of you on this list reply to articles even before you have read them, some of you talk about SCNC even when the article to which you are responding had nothing to do with the subject. I am surprised that most, if not all of you are abroad. What examples are you showing our brothers back in Cameroon? Is it because you have access to internet that you must continue to write rubbish on a public forum like this one?. You have turned away many reasonable Cameroonians who would have wanted to express themselves in a more mature way. I know some of you will accuse me of taking sides. Please look at the list and what each of you have written in the past before jumping into senseless conclusions. There are people like samleyin whose ideas I do not agree with, but at least he writes maturely. Some of you go as far as trying to identify the person behind an article. Is this important? Is it the idea expressed or the person who expressed the idea that is important? Some of you even ask your frinds to write in support of your idea or to attack another person's thinking. This is rediculous. Please stop this childish and unecessary excitement. I believe most of you are above 18. This is not reflected in the quality of articles you post on this forum. May God bless all of you.

From LDA to SDF and now to CPDM,Mkemngu is a political prostitute and I believe he is simply prospecting for gold, which he didn't find while in the SDF. If he had any political convictions, he would not have been wondering around like a man infested with 'sukugu'(wondering illness-from Burning Grass by Ekwensi).

Fellow forum mates,

I'd like to thank you all for your patience and the wonderful ideas some people take time to push forth in this forum. At the same time i'll want to challenge others to drop their political bigotries and embrace a purposeful approach towards resolving the impasse that years of political inaptitude has plunge our homestead.

Let me tell Martin Nkemngu something some one once said to some people sometimes ago: QUITTERS ARE LOSERS. Martin, you are a loser. I don't want to replicate the arguments others have put forth here already but if you Martin Nkemngu stand today to say:..."[I]... was right to have jumped out of the boat of a party that was sinking deeper in the abyss of intolerance, dictatorship and tribalism", then I will simply add that you jumped from a sinking ship with leaving live jackets on board into an already sunken ship with no hopes to offer the people of Cameroon,which it has drawn into its own shadow of greed, misery, corruption, dictatorship, murder,tribalism, nepotism and COLONIZATION. QUITTERS ARE LOSERS.

Martin Nkemngu, by leaving the SDF and joining the CPDM you have simply confirmed the bribery and corruption politics that SIMON ACHIDI ACHU, with whom you used to dine at night and whom you constantly visited at ROCK FARM Santa, the politics of "scratch ma back i scratch ya own, the politics of jangi" used to preach as the CPDM doctrine.

I don't condone the lapses of the present SDF leadership and I have pointed out in this forum before that if this impasse in the leadership class continues, the SDF am afraid is set on the road to moribund. I have called on the CHAIRMAN, who for ages will remain the fore-runner of Cameroons democracy to hand over the baton of leadrship to a new generation. That he should learn from the simple saying of the stars that: QUIT THE CROWD BEFORE THE CROWD QUITS YOU.

ALMA ABAH

Mr Fomukong was burnt to death in his home in Bamenda on the 24 October 1992,because of his Political convictions. Nobody was punished for this, but as long as God is above the universe, divine justice will be done,and the culprit will get their own punishment, just wait and see. Starting with the convention.
His spirit has risen back to fight against the SATAN DEMAGOGIC FIGHTERS,SDF and group of selfish politicians.

Today, we have allowed the political big necks to divert us from the quest that will set us on the part to our political freedom as English speaking Cameroonians. As a minority in a culturally pluralistic political society we should understand that the future is NOW.

If the CPDM is as democratic as Nkemngu will want us to believe, let them organize a referendum on the Anglophone Question as the SERBIA has over the week-end allowed for a referendum on the MONTENEGRO question. Let France urge BIYA and his croonies, let AMERICA hear our cry, let the EUROPEAN UNION hear the songs of our sorrow.

We continue to urge for a peaceful resolution of this crisis but as the regime and the rest of the world continue to be resilient to finding a peaceful solution to the stalemate gradually are we descending to another somalia, Darfur, Rwanda, Eritrea, Ethopia, Liberia, Angola, Congo. We watch with admiration the way politica transistions and transformations are acrried out in Europe yet the disdain with wich our leaders hear our voices remains a mystery to comprehend.

Today I tell Martin Nkemngu and the other losers that they should join the right ship and lets stair Southern cameroons to its own fulfilled destiny.

They've also tried to use insults and accusations to dissuade us from ur FACTS. I hope they do not slam 8.2 on you. You know JFN and his GANG are always using that as a trump card. They are mis-using the powers entrusted them. I pray these Fru Ndiists repent. Some of these disciples are just defending their 'garri'. I can't blame them as I pray God opens their eyes to see all the deception in this 'SDF Don Finish'. Keep up the good work BenB.
Watesih, Samleyin, Fon Lawrence, Klemenceau, Atangha and crew, OVER TO YOU.

Fon  Lawrence

Greerts,
The main point expressed in your posting above is your disgust for the bad English of a particular group.
May I know if those who lack the acumen English on this forum belong only to the group you have isolated. When you respond to this I will come back for a detail respond to your insult. Let it not be that you have something to hide and use English as a way to attack some particular persons.
I am waiting.

Geerts

Fon Lawrence,

I am waiting for your commets. Make sure you do better than your friend rexon by at least expressing yourself in readable english. I am not perfect myself, but I try to minimise the errors so that readers can get the message the way it is.

LeBAMS

Let me tell you Mr geerts you shouldn't be the one to correct people's mistakes in this forum.Everybody has his or her opinion and if you don't agree with mine,please go join the SDF party for that's where only the opinion of their leader is the best.The SDF will not even accept the verdict of the judgement passed in favour of Ngwasiri.You people are preaching justice and fairness,yet you cannot practice it.The mandate of the NEC expired 3 years ago and nobody was there to point it out,when Ngwasiri did,he is brandished a traitor,a fool and a sell out.If the SDF ever wins the presidency in Cameroon is that how you gonna govern? No way.You can do that only in the SDF and in Bamenda.
Let me tell you why I termed the SDF a bamenda party,the illegal and fake convention will be held in bamenda,the entire NEC is made up of bamenda guys,they have more seats in parliament from the Northwest,Nec meetings are held always in Fru Ndi's compound,Mbah Ndam,Sama,Sendze will always defend their fellow Graafi brother when ever he has probs because he is an illiterate and cannot defend himself.Those voting for SDF in other provinces are Graafi folks.
You fooled Pa Achidi Achu a lot and the prime ministry was taken away from him.You cannot fool Inoni and Biya anymore that's why you got no true minister from bamenda.You guys have to adjust before you can have the sympathy from fellow cameroonians.you can fool some poeple sometime but you cann't fool them always.
Nkemgu has changed his strategy and it worked but not personality,that's politics.

Just Thinking Aloud

I am really worried by some of your reactions to Nkemngu"s interview and would like to let you know why. I was shocked when one of you said "democracy is failing" in Cameroon. The core of democracy is freedom. This explains why Nkemngu is free to exercise his freedom the way he thinks and not the way we would want him to. When people abuse him for exercising his freedom makes me think that we are the ones failing not democracy. We are not yet mature for it.
I hate to see people judging a case from one piont of view. At one time the SDF chairman rejected Ngwasiri's proposal on the grounds that he(Ngwasiri) had resinged from his post. I was tempted to believe him but listening to Ngwasiri's side of the story proved the chairman wrong.
Nkemngu raised a number of issues about the SDF and what I expect members of the party to do is to try to debunk them. One of them is that no SDF member has criticized the chairman and gone scot free meanwhile there are so many in the CPDM who criticize their leader and are still there.
When folks go to the extent of abusing him makes me wonder whether we actually know what democracy is.
Another issue worth mentioning here is that of people displaying their schools and trying to intimidate others by challanging their grammar. Some of us are in elite universities but we think that politics is not academics because if that were the case.....


Think-Man

the polititical storm in the SDF has given Democracy a chonic fever. Ideology is no longer the platform of focus. Individuals have become the major mdeterrents. Can someone remind my people that democracy has cut through ages. Why is it in captivity? Remember: big minds talk ideas, little minds talk people. Where are we.

LeBAMS,
By responding to Geerts doesn't help. I think it would have been better if you ignored him. I am made to believe that there are people who have been sponsored to derail us. This note should also serve as a piece of advice to folks like Mukete, Akoson and others with good intention.

Fon  Lawrence

Geerts
You did not respond to what I asked you and therefore you should not be expecting my comments.I asked you to defend your tenuous excuse of bad English as a basis for your attack by telling this forum whether those you isolated are the only ones who write bad English here.Of course Momo`s English is excellent because he writes what you want to read?
This is the first time I am reading a posting from you and you claimed to have always minimised errors.
I still withhold my comments until you comment on what I have asked you, without which I will simply ignore you. Most important don´t act in disguise.
I remain an ebullience person and take no pride in insulting others.

Eat your Dinner granted by CPDM,before it gets cold.

You better keep your mouth shut.

Type comments first on Microsoftword, where "spell-check" can help in making some corrections. Edit. Then copy and paste.

Geert,
If I take on you,you will simply abscond from this forum.
You have just two contributions above,all not void of errors.

"Make sure you do better than your friend rexon by at least expressing yourself in readable english"
I want to challenge you that there is nothing as "readable english".One can talk of readable English text.Readable has to do with clear and easy to read (legible),e.g.readable book or article.We can talk of American English,British etc and not readable English. Is that O.K? By the time you will make the third contribution,I will point out to you how enervated your English is.

Geerts,

As mad as you are. Where have you studied and how many variants of english and englishes are you aware of?

There you come again with 'Watch your English'. Hope you are watching yours before writing. We can also come after yours as usual. Hope this time around you will not look for a short-cut like you did last time.
A luta continua

Bugiba

chiefmboe,
I find it rediculous for you to think that it is democracy when Nkemngu decamps to the CPDM and makes damaging remarks about the SDF, and at the same time you turn around to crucify those who made thier own remarks on this political action and declarations. You demonstrated that you are a dishonest person by declaring them 'those who are failing democracy in Cameroon'. Tell me if in your opinion democracy has meaning only to some people and not to others. By the way, where have you been all this while? Jonny-just-come seeking for notice from the just crowned Nkemngu? Surely,another vampire looking for blood. This is really unfortunate for this country.
Oh God, Please help Cameroon.

Watesih

Geerts,
Deja entendu ! Mr English,allow
Cameroonians to use even lingua franca to pass across their ideas.Geerts you are treading on very slippery grounds!
By and by there`s nothing in English as: "rediculous".We the poor users only know of "ridiculous".Hahahahaha!

Akoson


Vally Of England,

I think everyday. It's you who may refuse to think at times cos prof Kale has nothing to worry about. From what you said last time you'll be on the road now and you'll probably get this reaction when you arrive.

Vally, if you're lucky to get my mail before the convention I advise you to attend the Bamenda convention. Stop being confused for ones and become responsible. I wish to re-iterate that prof has nothing to worry about...if two wards accept the candidacy of a particular candidate you should be rather happy that that candidate has been hardworking and will be able to lead that office very well.

I hope you understand.

Son Of Ako, LSE.

Akoson

Look here BenF,

Your sole job's reacting in this forum and trying to BEG others sympathise with you. You may be the Muna in disguise. I want to make it clear to you that most of us have many more important things to do other than sleeping on the internet to NICELY coin languages - screaming and pleading with all and sundry see with YOU. No..that's not my job but it's YOURS. LEAVE LSE out of this! Are you jealous of this institution?

You took pretext cos I didn't go in depth to analysing all the anti-party declarations your god has been making. Without hoping to engage into any debate with someone of your type I leave you with this question to ponder about; "if you're an illiterate old mama in Ekondo Titi what would you do when you hearsay a bigwig in the SDF says Fru Ndi is "chopping" soya with Biya?" Look here man don't twist facts, when we say something ugly about the leader of a political party including shady financial involvement with a common enemy(and not heads of academic institutions like you claim and try to derail our reason), what image are you painting of the party??? You accuse the hierachy of corruption and betrayal, what do you want us(the street and REAL militants) to do? I don't want to get into lectures - educating you on the VERY MEANING of anti-party activities cos you resemble a twister like Mukete. Specialised in twisting facts.

I'd already fasted for the party long time ago but I still pray fervently. Don't force me into fasting and prayers. The good Lord has always done things good for me. If you accept Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour sincerely, be sure to receive rewards in abundance. Don't ask people why the SON OF AKO never fails...wherever I'm or whatever I stand for, always wins except there's fraud. And mark my words...the SDF will win the next presidential elections in Cameroon. Quote me after then!

One last word; STOP INDOCTRINATING MY DEAREST CAMEROONIANS. Give points with hards proofs as we do.


See ya,

From La Nouvelle Expression

For those who don't mind reading the French version while waiting for the English translation. Can a translator help out here?


SANCTIONS DE NOUVELLES EXCLUSIONS AU SDF

Le Comité exécutif national du parti a procédé à l’exclusion d’une vingtaine de ses membres à l’issue de son conclave de Bamenda. Parmi les victimes, Bernard Muna.

Le Comité exécutif national du Social Democratic Front, qui a siégé, le 22 mai dernier à Bamenda, a curieusement très peu cité, dans ses résolutions finales, la préparation du congrès national qui doit se tenir dans cette ville, le 26 mai prochain. L’instance a plutôt planché sur le nettoyage au sein du parti.

Et, pour la première fois, une résolution dudit comité a prononcé ou entériné l’exclusion d’une vingtaine de cadres du parti, dont de hauts cadres du Comité exécutif national (voir liste ci-contre).

Le Comité exécutif national “ souligne la gravité des actions de ces militants et la menace qu’elles constituent pour la sauvegarde de l’unité du Sdf ainsi que la paix, la stabilité et l’unité du pays ; prend acte, comme stipulé à l’article 8.2 des statuts du Sdf et en conformité avec les résolutions du Nec du 26 février 2006 mettant en garde que tout militant du sdf qui soutient activement la tentative de coup de force de Ngwasiri, subira le même sort que lui… ”

C’est la première fois aussi que le Comité exécutif national de ce parti prononce une telle exclusion massive au cours de la même session. En ramassant, dans la mêlée, les militants de base et les membres du Comité exécutif national.

C’est aussi, pour la première fois, que le Social Democratif Front exclut une femme à un niveau de responsabilité de celui de Odile Mballa mengue, vice-présidente nationale encore en fonction. C’est dire que le camp de Fru Ndi a décidé de frapper sans faire de quartiers. Advienne que pourra.

“Un non-événement
C’est ainsi qu’à Bamenda, on est presque sur le pied de guerre. Parce que les membres du comité exécutif, qui s’y sont rendu, pour la réunion du 20 mai dernier, ne sont presque plus retournés dans leurs villes respectives. Et doivent visiblement attendre le congrès sur place.

C’est aussi la première fois qu’ils séjournent aussi longtemps dans la ville de Bamenda.

Joint au téléphone, Youdom Ivo, un des exclus, a éclaté de rire. Pour lui, “ c’est un non événement ”. Avant de préciser : que “ c’est un acte de folie et de dérive. Parce que ceux qui nous excluent, relève-t-il, n’ont plus de mandat pour le faire ”. Il était d’ailleurs sur la route pour Yaoundé où il va prendre part au congrès organisé par le Pr Ngwasiri.

Aux dernières nouvelles, les deux camps se préparent activement à tenir leur congrès. A Bamenda et à Yaoundé. La suite promet bien des rebondissements.

Akoson,

To you first. You call me a thing of a person, thanks a million. To respond to your specific comments: In a posting above you praise the good writers in the forum. You specifically name Ebai James as one of the good writers. But all I could see from Ebai James was "Lebialem people 99.9999". Tell me what else you were praising in Ebai James? That is why I call you a tribalist.

I use the words "English-Speaking" instead of "Anglophone" but both mean the same thing. "Poor English-Speaking" has absolutely no reference to the language spoken but to the people in Akwaya, Ndian, Nkambe, Bakingilie etc. I am talking of the poverty our people live in, rather than the language you or any one speaks. But it does not surprise me that you completely misunderstood what I wrote.

Are your questions answered now?

Teribobs

Netters,
SDF don really craze. I strongly believe JFN and his GANG are out of their senses. I am sure some of those blind followers are waiting for a translation. Who says Prof Ngwasiri hasn't got a following? SDF Don Finish. JFN alias chairman for life like his bedfellow Bi Mvondo is already celebrating as he awaits the usual play-acting come 26th May.

wISH YOU THE BEST.

Ashwell Molaba

SDF this, SDF that! For how long shall we waste our time on this good for nothing organisation? We cheered and jumped and celebrated. We thought finally, the Anglophone's day had come. We signed petitions. We marched on the streets. Sacrificed blood. We were tortured, in the name of democracy and change. In the end, what did we get? Nothing! Another guy who thinks sixteen years in power is not good enough.

Did we stop the exploitation of our resources? Do we have roads going to Ndian? Eyumojock? No! Are we recognised as full citizens in the land of our birth? No. We have been turned into refugees and economic migrants. We have abandoned home and family, fleeing fear and tyranny. Because of what? Because we sacrificed the blood of our brothers and sisters, so that SONARA can pay taxes in Victoria. Now, tell me why, I should sing Fru Ndi or Ngwasiri. Tell me why these people who seek their own interests should hijack our discussions. Tell me why we should not be looking for solutions. Instead we should be turned into morons discussing the obvious day-in-day out. What is the story here? For months news to us, is some god-forsaken-idiot who leaves one devilish party for another. What difference does that make in the lives of millions of our people. May be it is the talk in this forum that makes a difference. Lets grow up.

Geerts

Some people on this forum have reacted as if the correct use of the english language was my main and only concern. Take a look at the following statements and tell me how intelligent they are. What can any of you learn from these types of comments? Will any of you be proud to let your school age child read these? I still think people who write this type of rubbish are either not well educated, badly brought up or are just stupid.

Geerts,
The use of English was one of your concerns.Let me make it emphatically clear to you,that we are not here in a classroom,nor are we in a monastery.Even if we were in an English language classroom,i don`t think you can stand the heat.You are new here and instead of going headlong into the problems plaguing your Country as others have been doing ,you came telling people about English not being your main and only concern.By the way what do you understand by,"...from these types of comments"? Those in cambridge will say," these type of comments".Keep speaking from the moral pedestal you have placed yourself!

Fon Lawrence

Geerts,
Is that enough to make a generalization? You still owe an apology for your approach.

"What can any of you learn from these types of comments? "
Can you identify what is wrong in the above expression with regard to proper English usage?
"Will any of you be proud to let your school age child read these?"
I can´t make sense out of the above question.
Again you are snared in your own trap.

Fon Lawrence

Watesih,
What a coincidence?

Akoson

Ashwell Molaba,

Thanks for your answers. I was just crazy about the term you heaped on me - TRIBALIST. Well, I may not have gone through Ebai's posting from top to bottom. Like I've always said in this forum I hardly read through long postings.

If Ebai is tribalsitic then that's too bad.

Hope you understand.

Legal challenge to Zanzibar union

A court in Zanzibar has begun hearing a case challenging the legality of the treaty that created the United Republic of Tanzania in 1964.
The move was taken by 10 Zanzibaris who are seeking to invalidate the union of mainland Tanzania and the archipelago.
As the court set 28 June to start hearings, top officials from Zanzibar and the mainland met in Dar-es-Salaam.
They were discussing islanders' claims of alleged injustices in the union treaty that led to the legal action.
"I believe that many problems facing the union can be solved and the best way is to discuss them transparently," said federal Vice-President Ali Sheni, as he started talks with Zanzibar's Chief Minister Shamsi Vuai.
Correspondents say many Zanzibaris feel that the union favours the mainland.
Recent elections on Zanzibar have seen violent clashes between supporters of the Civic United Front, which gets most of its support from the archipelago and the ruling CCM party.
Zanzibar, with its long beaches and colourful history of trading spices and slaves, is one of Tanzania's main tourist attractions

If we the southern Cameroonians can stand as one people and carry our case to all nooks and crannies it will one day happen.

Cameroon: "The SDF Leadership Has Become Dictatorial"- Nkemngu

Cameroon Tribune (Yaoundé)
May 23, 2006
Posted to the web May 24, 2006
Effa Tambenkongho
In a press briefing in Yaoundé over the weekend, he said the CPDM is Ready for Democratic Change.
"While the SDF has derailed from the democratic options laid down by its founding fathers, the ruling CPDM has demonstrated much readiness for democratic change" This, according to Martin Nkemngu, is the reason why he moved from the SDF to the CPDM. He believes that with the creation of the new audit bench of the supreme court, a new criminal procedure code, the law on declaration of assets, the talk of creating an independent electoral commission, and Cameroon's admission to the HIPCI completion point, much is changing within the CPDM.
In joining the CPDM, Nkemngu said he also exercised his freedom to choose, which freedom he has defended for 16years. "Politics is a dynamic game and individuals, parties and countries change positions from time to time depending on their interests and situations". He went further to cite Fru Ndi contesting parliamentary elections with Achidi Achu on the CPDM platform in 1988, only later to join the SDF in 1990. "That was his right to choose", he said.
The erstwhile SDF Communication Chief said since 1996 when he joined the SDF, he has faithfully and diligently served the party because, according, to him it showed adherence to the democratic principles of freedom of speech and opinion, respect of human and individual rights and the freedom of association. He said the recent deviation from "these lofty democratic principles and the attempt to establish a dictatorship convinced me and some members of my constituency to reconsider our relations with the SDF".
Nkemngu remarked that there was an on-going process to amend the party's constitution and make the leader an all powerful dictator with the powers to appoint and dismiss members of NEC and to single-handedly choose candidates for various national elections. "Thus the leadership of the SDF has betrayed and compromised the struggle for democratic change in Cameroon".
Responding to the allegation that he crossed carpet out of frustration in Sopecam, he said he had no reason to be frustrated at SOPECAM, because he was very comfortable. He had held the position of provincial chief for 18 years and was satisfied. He said he did not cross-over to the CPDM to be promoted a senior journalist. If it were so, he said, he would not have waited all these years He said he believes in his independence of action according to his convictions. He said with the present dictatorial leadership of the SDF change would never come as Cameroonians expect.
Asked whether he was not bought over, Nkemngu said he was a man of conviction who acts according to his conscience and in the interest of his constituency and people.
Asked whether he will be able to freely express himself in the CPDM, he said the changes taking place mean that the CPDM government is beginning to listen to public opinion. He said it was his hope to join in making his modest contribution to democratic change in the country.

Dear Readers!
Let's not be distracted by this teacher of English on this forum. He should understand that we are here to inform, educate and entertain Cameroonians especially the Diasporans.

If Geerts was an intelligent person, he/she should have understood that most of us here are still learning to use the keyboard effectively. By so doing, we make typing errors.

Back to issues: the convention in Bamenda is on course! Everything has been put in place to have a hitch-free convention.

Our former dissidents were hoping to use the provincial secretariat at Olezoa Yaounde for 'their convention' but the place for now is under the custody of the forces of law & order. Too bad for them! They started this disorder before May 20 and continued on May 22. They would have hid there & brought cameras to shwon how Ben MUNA is their new chairman and Secretary General Zamboue. They have all paid the price of thuggery.

They are numbering over 20; they can form a political party. They way has been paved for them to do so - since they are no longer members of the SDF. May God bless them in their new outfit.
Amen

Agborarrey(DC)

Nkemngu you just got the post u were looking for. How about the people you have carjoled to join the SDF you've now left them to suffer right? I now understand why some poeple described u as 99. Had u still been with the SDF will they have appointed you editorialist? Just to let you know that the CPDM you claim is better is also as bad as the SDF. You are a black leg.

Ashwell Molaba

Geerts,

It is interesting that you throw an angle to this whole debate. I must admit that reading SDF stories and comments everyday is absolutely boring. Many a commentator in the forum have spiced things up with artful insults. But you Geerts, you have topped it all. You write comments full of language mistakes lambasting others for mistakes.

Fon Lawrence, I can see and understand what he/she means by would we let our school age child read such comments. I doubt why you don't understand it. Honestly, I agree with Geerts on that comment. Though I think he is speaking because he feels compelled to say something. I wonder what he is doing in the forum if he thinks the comments are too bad. By the way, this is open to everyone. If a child is old enough to read, they are allowed in here.

I like people who nicely try and characterise the forum like I have often naively done. Some seem to think it is a forum to educate and entertain. Therefore what does not fall under that should be scrapped. I doubt that, let people voice their opinions. Whatever tickles their balls. Let the tribalist speak too. Do not get me wrong; when I criticise you for writing "Lebialem 99.9999", I am not trying to intimidate you. Write what you like, sensible people will see you for what you are and idiots who know nothing will not be able to tell the difference between you and them. But please can we find something else to write about. Surely someone is as tired of this SDF debacle as I am.

Mukete

This is Mukete with the light!

BREAKING NEWS!

We have got from a very reliable source that results of the Bamenda convention has been released "underground" even as the convention is still to hold. Fru Ndi gave a landslide victory. The figures are not yet available. Where is the future of Cameroon? Where are we heading to? Shame! We will publish the result very soon.

Some of you say I am making weapons of..., atomic bombs etc. You can say what you want. And look here Akoson don't think that this forum is for kids, ok?

I will come back with my findings. You can start making noise and describe it the way you want. I don't care. I bring the light as usual.

I am coming!

What else do expect from a paper edited by this moron. Little does he know he is amortising the goodwill this paper has been bearing all this while so eloquently. A man with a dead conscience.

Geerts,

There you are still pulling on with the struggle to adjust the Queen's language. If I may ask you, does this really matter? It does not matter in this forum. what matters is getting the message through. Please others have come and gone in thier struggling to correct English. In my earnest plea, drop this flag you are carrying and participate in a constructive debate. You even ought to show some tolerance in your comments which were kind of primal that I will honestly call allegations. We are cameroonians and everybody's contribution counts.

JTS,

In your ability to qualify people, what is it that you always contribute? I have been looking up to learning from your comments since you branded me - the most primitve, yet I have found nothing to learn. Mr urban, using your hollywood super-star name and even with the heats coming out of your ears will not dessever you out to be more cameroonian than the rest. When you carefully select those whose comments give you an obessive inclination of joy, know that it rouse ss well, the impatience of others. It actully chafe the inside of others and set it in flames. Apart from telling people that Biya's speech has been a blow to civil servants, what is it that you think you are Mr Numbskull that you consider yourself and others so important and request them not to participate in this forum? You have refrain from branding people 'java man' and you are now embarking on retreating with your most important batalion consisting of headquaters and companies of important Men. What shall you read if the primeval ones don't post? Gentleman, we do not live in a caste system anymore. You can equally withdraw without seeking notice and I believe that is the attitude a gentleman should put on. if some of you find your self and surely by means of magic, in a political power position, Shaka zulu will be better. If you should involve very little with the ancestral and primeval type of people, then go and stuck your mouth with shit, buy your own land mass and develop your own 'republique'. You are just another assimilated jerk. Why don't you identify comments in your important capacity and instruct those writing to change their ways thereby helping to develop their moral and mental growth. Grow up fella.

LeBAMS, Ebai James, Banwaman and co.,

Tribalism will only help us to use our metronome very efficiently. We will find ourselves in the same spot no matter how hard we try to improve our socio-economic conditions as long as we condone tribalism. LebAMS Nkemgu has demonstrated an ill-fated demonstation but he said one thing right ie branding the SDF a Bamenda party is an excuse for political weaklings. That is true Mr man. This bamenda party statement has been the fountain of tribal flow in this forum. Try to realise that.

They are numbering over 20; they can form a political party. They way has been paved for them to do so - since they are no longer members of the SDF. May God bless them in their new outfit.
Amen

Dear Fon Lawrence and Watesih
Never mind Geerts. May be is on mission as insinuated by Akoson. I can see from your postings since yesterday that you really are masters of the English language.

I am therefore offering both of you positions in our only University: The Bamenda International University. You will be free to teach what you like best but make sure English is one of them. There will be no interviews because I do not want you to decline these offers. If Geerts applies, we will not be able to recruit him. First, he is too demanding. Why does he think that everybody should be a native English writer (or is it speaker?)when clearly he is not one?. Second, I do not know if he is a pastor or a pharmacist? Why is he so concerned with foul language on this forum? After all, according to your friend Ashwell Molaba, anyone who can read is at least 18 years (hahahahah, wonders will never end). Why I my laughing? May be this is what obtains in Europe or America where this guy is seeking refuge.

The reasons why we will not hesitate to recruit you are several. First you are very patriotic Cameroonians. Second, unlike Geerts and Agbor Mbai , we know that we would be able to keep you for as long as we wanted since no other university in Cameroon or abroad will be interested in your CV.

The only other university that you might consider moving to is the University of Buea, but those guys are crazy. I hear they are now screening certificates and worst still you will be subjected to an interview. No, we don’t want you to go through that because you risk not answering the tough questions. The last and most important reason is that even if for the sake of our students we decided to stop your contract, you may not be able to travel back to Europe and America because by then you must have received a negative result from the almighty high commission for refugees for abandoning your refugee case. So you see, you will become permanent staff of our international university. Your job will be guaranteed because we do not require our staff to publish papers in order to be promoted or to stay in their job. You just need to support the right party. We are also afraid that being very patriotic citizens, your dismissal may provoke a showdown between the university and the naked women in your village.

Did one of you say Agbor Mbai is a criminal? That reminds me of something that happened many years ago. This ‘criminal’ took the entrance examination, commonly known in our land as “concour”, into Polytechnic Yaounde. He was almost taken to Kondengui because he had 100% and had answered the question in order of appearance. What saved him was that when the GCE A level results were released, he was still the best. May be the same fraud was repeated. He must be a “criminal” indeed. As for Geerts, I do not know where he is coming from. I hope he will not kill me for all the English language errors. No, I know you are there to protect me.

And to you Fon and Watesih, this is an opportunity you cannot afford to miss. Come home and serve your fatherland. Who knows, if your party wins, you may become the next minister of homeland security.

Yours sincerely.

Samleyin,
You are making a mistake. When the heat was turned on, most of you chickened-out and that is why you can scarcely react to my write-ups. I be put pepper for wuna eye and i go come back with the pepper. Watesih, Fon Lawrence, Aaron(1st victim), Atangha et al take note. I have gone back to FIRE FOR FIRE so I am coming after you. You plead with others to avoid insults and you carry on. You got just the tip of the iceberg. The real thing is going to come now. I know many of you will have to heed BenB's advice and go to MsWord in order to spell-check. That will not completely solve your probs. I write at the spur of the moment and you can feel the flair. It is innate. Pick out the typographical errors and omissions and it will still not work. Many of you tried and got a taste of me. If a MBANGWANA, CHIA, BOBDA or those of that calibre come behind my language, it will do me some good. Not those I can challenge 'aller-retour'. Like Geerts rightly mentioned nobody is perfect. In his second reaction he was very objective and somehow apologetic but little minds could not understand. They can understand only the language their master taught them.
MAN NO RUN
