Cameroonians are a docile lot. Elections are just around the corner, and I wonder what they will be telling Cameroonians this time around. Yesterday just like the writer said Mafany told Cameroonians to tighten their belts and sacrifice like never before because better days were around the corner come completion point. Now the much waited completion point has been achieved and Inoni is out telling Cameroonians again to continue sacrificing and wait for better days ahead. The questions now are: - (1) Are the better days for eternity?, (2) are Cameroonians waiting for another completion point?, (3) for elections next year when salaries will be increased, fuel prices decreased, and all other consumable prices brought down to earth by the CPDM government so that Cameroonians will be happy to vote and maintain them in power?, or (4) is there some hidden agenda by Inoni up his sleeve that will be sprung to stop Cameroonians from going to the streets?. The questions are so many with answers blowing in the wind. My brother, this country is a time bomb that will explode any moment. It will start from anywhere at anytime. Those pushing Cameroonians continuously to the wall will render an account when the time comes. GOD SAVE US. Emmanuel Chim.

The assessments are unanimous that the HIPC completion point is not yet being felt by the masses.

However, almost all the complaints are based on the destructive tendencies of inflation, fuelled by the monthly increases in fuel prices (in addition to bad roads). Without something being urgently done about this, I'm afraid that the economy is only going to get worse, and the poverty levels are going to exacerbate even more. I am curious to know what steps the government is taking to address this problem.

The second point that is very relevant here is the justifiable stringency that has been introduced into the project application process, in order to put a check on all the fraudulent activities that had bemoaned this process.

Project applicants now need more than adequate training in constructing rigorous and well thoughtout project proposals that can meet the required standards.

With many proposals currently failing the test, because Cameroonians are not yet used to rigour and morality, it is no surprise that HIPC-fund consumption has been poor. The guiding rule here is that all project proposals must be underpinned by honesty; and appropriate analyses, calculations, and explanations must be given as justifications for the project costs.

The population will have to be patient while it learns to cope with Western standards. All it has to do is work harder, as there is no turning back!
