 Alhaji Ngulefac

Welcome back again mr patriot from your hideout.I thought you went underground for good.You resurfaced only to make yourself even more stupid.Your so called political parties like SDF and CPDM in La Republique du Cameroun are all jammed with serious divisions.Those short-sighted Southern Cameroonians who thought they could have huge chunk of meet from Biya´s junta are now frustrated and lashing out their greivances.The hand writing has always been there for people of your calibre to see.When do you to start seeing things from the right angle.Wake up from your hallucination.
Alhaji

what does a political prostitude like Azong Wara, still got to say? He thinks he can make a good come back here?
Mr GCE man, you surely donot have any sense of reason, soon i will not be surprise to see you in the UDC... You are a mess and disgrace, you seem to be so confused that you rush from one place to the other to seek for what , i donot yet know tell us what you are up to...

Emmanuel B Tange

What is really wrong with cameroonian intellectuals, all over the world educated individuals are those trying to right the wrongs of government and soceity, but in cameroon the reverse is true, most of the highly educated cameroonians who should be social critics are members of the great CPDM, these guys routinely meet in conferences to deceive our local people and discredit the Ntarikon hero, a man with so limited education but surely has made history in cameroon, i challenge Achidi and his friends to tackle the real problems facing cameroon rather than sending very cheap shots to chairman Fru Ndi, though right now i am not a big Fru Ndi fan, i am 100 percent confident that posterity will remember his braveness in the nineties.

If there is anyone who has startled me so far in life,it is Asong Wara.I have really been cut off from what is happening in Cameroon.It is breaking news to me this day to hear that Azong Wara declared for the CPDM since 2004.I repeat,when it comes to politics,Azong wara is the first politician to shock me.
I can still remember vividly what Azong wara told us about the CPDM in 2000 when he and the family were assaulted in Buea because of his affilation to the scnc course,and for me to hear today that Azong wara is a cpdm militant is beyond imagination.
I write this with tears in my eyes.If someone reading this has the phone number of this man,let me get it,because I will like to chat with him,not to question his action, but just to know the circumstances that caused him to take this obdurate decision. I think if I talk with him,I will be able to learn much from him.
Is THERE ANY REASON TO TRUST ANY POLITICIAN IN OUR COUNTRY AGAIN?

Sammy

Where is the blood thirsty Peter Abbety who got his village(Bambili) entangled in a bloodbath with the Babankis and in his attempt to break up Babanki Tungo by instigating the Bororos stepped on the toes of the almighty Dan Poulu, Alias Ndawara, and got kicked out of the Mvondo gov't. Certainly, given that he no longer has a following even in his native Bambili, he can no longer stand in the public and talk CPDM. The evil that men do lives after them.

Fon in thru Backdoor & Azong Wara

Fon, how was the crying retreat? OK let's leave that. Don't worry. Now you're back. No matter that you crept in through the back door to give the impression you're coming from afar.

(So as you enter back you go you straight, straight, straight na for go dig da Azong Wara story for da cona? Saaah. Pa you too try oh!) Well, no problem. Wipe ya eye.

And don't you get out of one cry die into another. Don't be too mad at Azong Wara. And I hope you didn't include Ni John and Mbah Ndam among the politicians you can't trust anymore when you said, "Is THERE ANY REASON TO TRUST ANY POLITICIAN IN OUR COUNTRY AGAIN?"

It's easy to understand Azong Wara's political sommersaulting. Drum-majors easily become COMMERCIAL ACTIVISTS because of the temptations that follow them.

Na temptation, ma broda!

But sometimes some are just fortunate with time, others are not. Time could expose them, while time remains kinder to others... for a while.

The GCE board struggle ended too soon, making Azong Wara a hero in a short time. If it tarried, if it were protracted, maybe he won't have stood the course and won the acclaim we gave him. Or who knows, maybe he would still have been a hero in the eyes of the public now.

Poor teachers, they would still have been looking up to him. And who would have dared criticise Azong, the best activist in the whole world? They would lynch you! Or perhaps he won't have chopped soya by now, but who would have known what stuff he is made of?

He would still be seen as the man of steel who gave Mbella Mbappe sleepless nights; who mobilised Anglophone teachers and parents accross the country and won the sympathy of many Francophone bureaucrats. But now we can see he has turned out to be nothing but a COMMERCIAL ACTIVIST.

At least he has mustered the courage to come out clear. Others are still hiding; not succeeding to deceive the people anymore, but still trying to hide all the same. You'll see their colours when their doom is laid bare in the coming days. Then you'll include them on Azong Wara's list.

I'll be back on Azong Wara.

AZONG WARA

Azong Wara would be an SDF MP today had Ngwasiri not won the SDF primaries ticket he contested in 2002. So why would he prefer to join the CPDM only now?

After all, the 2007 elections are just around the corner and seeing that “Ngwasiri is out of the way” Azong Wara should have been eyeing that seat.

It is true that Azong Wara has been wandering like a lost soul from CPDM in a lower profile around 1997 to secure his threatened GCE Board job, to SCNC when he lost the GCE Board. In the late 1990s Azong Wara posed as the father figure to bring together disputing SCNC factions.

Ahead of the 2002 parliamentary elections, he positioned for the SDF but lost the ticket. Yet that was his last stop. He hasn’t openly carried any political colours until his latest announcement in the CPDM. So why didn’t he instead jumped at the “opening” created by Ngwasiri’s “destitution”?

Simple. He knows Ngwasiri is still in control and is even the one to supervise the investiture of SDF candidates for parliament and others.

One problem a “cross carpet” of Azong Wara’s caliber is likely facing in the CPDM is lack of trust. After all the radical positions he has taken against Biya’s CPDM government, they’d hardly trust him. And he made too many enemies in the government when he gave government officials sleepless nights with his TAC activities not to talk of SCNC/SDF activities. He is certainly one of those whom Fon Agwafor refers to as “seen during the day dressed in CPDM uniforms and at night you are SDF”, not really because he is still in the SDF but because they just can’t picture him as a CPDM member. He might however be rewarded with an appointment somewhere in one of those ministries.

But I won’t throw insults at him for changing camps, he is just as hungry as the other Cameroonians, one has to eat. He still deserves credit for his wonderful accomplishments with TAC and the GCE Board.

Fon

Ben B,
Indeed, Azong Wara has taught me a big lesson.The only thing I can do now,is to behave like that driver who on his way from Yaounde to Douala,met his fellow driver who had an accident and died,but he still had the courage to continue the journey. However while I continue to drum for Fru Ndi, I must also behave like that man who had a beautiful and loving wife,but who had learnt bitter lessons from other women,and in order to avoid a future heart attack one day,had it in mind that it is possible for another man to date the wife.

In your analysis of Azong Wara´s drama which you linked to Ngwasiri,you failed to understand as I have understond from this article that Azong Wara decided for the worst since 2004. It is not today that he decided for this suicide mission as you linked it to this your day dreaming statement which I have quoted below.
"So why didn’t he instead jumped at the “opening” created by Ngwasiri’s “destitution”?

Simple. He knows Ngwasiri is still in control and is even the one to supervise the investiture of SDF candidates for parliament and others"

My fellow Cameroonians,my personal convection is that all of us should strive to make positive name in Life. I believe that a positive name in life,especially one that is made in a struggle to redeem a suffering people is a remarkable achievement far far greater than riches.

For Azong Wara to declare for the cpdm today,no matter the circumstances that triggered it,he has not only destroyed the name,but all that he has so far achieved in life. What can Azong wara gain from the cpdm which will be more that that name he made and which he has completely destroyed today? Even if he is made minister of education today,his popularity will never climb to 1/10 of that which he has destroyed. If I were to meet him today,I will have just one question for him. I will simple ask him,what do you real want in life? Money or ....?

Fon,
You made some explicite write-up but when you are castigating Azong Wara for 'crossing the carpet' as a sign of blunder or failure, then you are derailing from your standpoint.Just have that conviction that party politics can be played in any play-ground and you become victorious so far as you are determined to achieve your aims and objective set-aside.Azong Wara could not sit to wait for his own doom as he has been and a true witness to the wranglings going on within the SDF.Many have crossed the carpet to the CPDM who honorably host the guests from the SDF.

Ask yourself why the CPDM never dismisses but accept and warmly welcomes militants from the SDF and other defunct political parties nation-wide.Not everyone can withstand with that rapture, the system if conflict resolution NJFN is implimenting in eliminating his rivals, who wants to come to the political limelight.NJFN has transformed the SDF into a diction of voilence, maimed with uproars,accusations and counter accusations and confrontations.Let alone those who publicly declared their stance of crossing the carpet, there are many notorious SDF political critics who are very scetptical with the success of the party under it present leadership.And what do you expect from them;lack of trust to the heirarchy.

While the SDF looses a member to the CPDM,they are ready for them.What are we left with; political quakes and civil insubordination amongst members,unfortunately promting many militants to disappointed,loose hope and remain divided into where to go,politically perplexed,in an ecstacy of fumbling.Let's wait and see.....

'Power to the People' 'More power to Fru Ndi'

Fon

Fritzane Kiki,
Your hatred for Fru Ndi has rendered your brain numbed.In fact,you have ceased to reason.So according to you,every wrong step someone takes today should be justified by the fact that Fru Ndi is a dictator or that people are dimissed from the party? According to you cpdm is the best party because it doesnot dismiss militants?
Have you ever tried to reflect and ask your numbed brain why those who cry foul in the SDF,when they moved to the CPDM,nobody hears them complaining again? You think they don´t complain because the leadership of the cpdm is perfect and democratic? I am startled with your reasoning.
