This criminals should stop pretending as if only issues relating to the southern cameroons are faked. In cameroon, all official documents are being faked, by those issuing them and by others who have the courage to fake them. This include all major certificates, driving licences, birth certificates, bank statements, insurance, etc. You can only be unable to have it if you cannot afford to pay the right persons who can fake it for you. Many students have got degrees from the University of Buea and other state Universities through the backdoors protected by those in authority.In the databases, those degrees are genuine but in reality, they are not. They are fake degrees issued to them by those in power. So we should not pretend as if the students here did a murderous crime by trying to cheat on others. Cheating has become a culture in la republique.

Zandré

Well It's a pity,that we don't wanna accept any wrong doing.Is the GCE boaard being run by la replublic.We should stand up and take responsiblilty for our deeds and crimes and not point finger at others as if we're crime free.The Board is simply doing it's job.So far as education is concern The anglosaxone system has proven to be the best.Our "O","A" Levels and UB degrees are of higher quality than those from the other site of the mungo.putting a deft ear on the malpractices taking place at both the GCE boar n UB will be ashame to us,this is only what we have to prove our worth by producing folks who'll bring the change we need infuture.Our System is the best,check the influx of Francophones into our english schools and UB.
last time it was the fake degrees,now it's fake A n O levels,where are we heading to if action isn't taking now?And if fake stuffs do exist on the other site it doen't mean we should let it exist on our site.two wrongs don't make 1 right.Let this go free will be very bad,if u start faking from "O" level ,it is certain u'll spend 80% of your life doing fake(fake certificate,fake work,fake wife,fake family,fake life= no happiness,no future),the other 20% is just because you can't have fake oxygen to breath. Bravo to the GCE board,Keep it on.Changes will come from your action.others will copy you very soon.The effect will only be fell if does who really practice this cheating are punish not the innocent hard working students.

Zandré

sorry 4 any uncorrected english mistakes on my above posting,was in a hurry to go out,so never did recheck my spellings.Thank god it's not a fake posting.Thanks.

My good friend ,I know your frustration with the regime but then charity begins at home.
The GCE Board is an anglophone heritage which must be protected from all odds

I for one will love to see these students mercilessly sanctioned, then UB chancellor should dig into the fake certificate affair, all those involved in the mafia brought to book, then a goodwill anglophone comissioner should swoop on Kumba to cleanse it of fake certificate deliverers, then Mutengene should be cummed for "419 dealers" etc etc ......

..and let the anglophones be shining examples to those on the other side of the Mungo. Martin Luther was said "if you are fighting against a course, you will succeed unless you fall victim to that same course"

Thats the way I see it'

I am very embarrased for what my good friend Mr RIXON has just written above. We faught for the GCE BOARD in order to improve the credibility of our exams and since it's creation,it has been doing a good job to maintain this standard. The door to intelectualism.progress, development and nation building is examination and anything or anybody that compromises the success of this institution is an enemy to progress. We all today are crying out of fraud and maladministration within our country, if we therefore allow these kind of poor atitudes to prevail then where are we heading to or what kind of future are we preparing for our children? Universities abroad are aready loosing confidence and trust to our certificates because of all the fake certificates most Cameroonians are using to seek for admissions.What kind of an immage are we painting our beloved country? This so call principal and his clique should be given heavy penalties if found guilty. I also strongly recommend that the whole of that institution should be closed down in order to wipe out all these crookes and their upsprings. I strongly believed that my friend Mr RIXON did not buy his own certificate to be what he is today.
GOD BLESS MY BELOVED COUNTRY

I don't know the hell of a Southern Cameroon you guys have been preaching on this forum: a Southern Cameroon with no definition, a Southern Cameroon with no objective(s), a Southern Cameroon with no vision. You blind Southern Cameroon preachers are like a blind christian yelling for Christ to come and when Christ comes, the yeller will run away, saying Christ hasn't come. Southern Cameroon is being born but you are just too blind to notice it. I will advise you guys to come home and take care of this new born, it is not a question of fighting, not a question of insulting people, not a question of writing trash but a question of coming home to develop your land. A baby in the womb never waits for all conditions outside to be made before it comes out.

rexon

Zandre, Tayong and Akamembulle,

Thank you guys for your reaction. When ephraim Ngwafor was appointed as rector of Yaounde, and he wanted to screen from the University Database all fake certificates, what was the result? was'nt he having problems because the computer techician has been making millions from such illegal practices for several years? And he was connected to high places in la republique's corrupt junta in yaounde?


My concern is that Cameroonians should avoid all fake things, not "SOME" fake things as is always the case. If we turn to avoid some fake things and recognise others, then we are merely joking. The fight must start from the top and not from the bottom. History has proven that the best way to reduce corruption is to fight from above. If those faked degrees were possibly being issued in Yaounde for kickbacks, La republique du Cameroun would never have published any name. Take for example the issue of fake bank statement or driving licences. Those who issue fake driving licences are being appointed by their booses in yaounde in such strategic positions for kickbacks. have you ever heard Yaounde publishing a list of fake drivers licences? Also bank statements discredited by foreign embassies are those that the victem (docky man) did not pay the appropriate authorities (Bank Managers) to fake. Have you ever heard banks publishing a list of fake bank statements that have been issued by their employees.

Almost all asylum seekers and those who have travelled abroad have in one way or the other faked one or two things to hand over to other authorities. We know of rampant fake driving licences, Bank statements, Health Insurance certificates, Recommendation letters, Police reports, SCNC card, Newspaper stories/articles, etc. Those who went away with their fake documents should not smile when someone else is caught. They should instead refrain from doing it. Those who want to take the authority to start publishing names like the GCE board should publish all names even if their children or relatives are involved. I recently asked a friend who was blasting a feyman last weekend in London if his Asylum case is grounded on a true story/documents, if his working documents (fake french citizenship) are genuine. He could not open his mouth for one single minute. But i have never been guilty of these things, neither do i support them. We should all know we are guilty and we have to work very hard to clean the place. How many of us abroad have sent money home for driving licenses to be sent to us? Who issue those licences in absentia? Is that not something fake? Why should we be concerned about those who discredit our certificates?

We should also publish the names of all those who have won scholarships to study abroad from la republique, all those in ENAM, EMIA, ENS, police officers,CUSTOMS, etc.

Asylum seekers all over the world, most of who write in this forum have a long history of presenting false stories about their asylum case. I remember a judge in the UK have to inform a cameroonian asylum seeker that you can only lack documents to present to a court here when you dont have money to buy them in Cameroon. That is true and we cannot deny it.

My solution to all these problem is that, we should overthrow la republique's colonial government and prepare a corrupt free society in the southern cameroons. We cannot clean a house that is built on falsehood. As things stand, i dont still find any of these guys guilty unless Mr Biya and his gang of criminals recognises their own crimes against humanity.

rexon

Tayong and All men of Goodwill,

We really have a great job to do if we want to wipe out fraud in our new government from all sectors of the economy. This story really portray the kind of gangster life in La Republique Du Cameroun. Parents even translating the scripts of their children at home and paying authorities to fake their certificates.

IMPASS is built on falsehood and that is why we see all these hapenning. Mr Mbu (a CPDM pundit) will be fighting hard to turn around the decision and like Doh, i am afraid, he will succeed.

rexon

For those who dont know, from my previous investigations some London/UK based commentators of southern cameroonian heritage in this forum were campaigning through the backdoors to become ministers in the forthcoming Biya regime. They have already been contacted by henchmen of the regime and are waiting anxiously. We will see if they will be appointed in the next few days or so.

Le Premier ministre Ephraïm Inoni, nommé en décembre 2004 après la réélection de M. Biya à la tête de l'Etat, reste en fonction et l'essentiel des alliances politiques et des équilibres entre les régions est préservé.

Jean Marie Atangana Mebara et Laurent Esso permutent leurs postes. Le premier devient ministre d'Etat aux Relations extérieures en remplacement du second, nommé ministre d'Etat, secrétaire général de la présidence de la République.

Spako

Hey Folks,
Why is the post not deleting comments about this scandal. Or are we waitinf for Sweden to raise the alarm before we come to realise that the GCE Board's certificates have flooded the Scandinavia. Why are they tongue tight when it comes to responding to concerns raise by many Swedish Universities?
Why were they (the Post) so quick to delete the comments about fake certificates from UB. Protecting friends?
Or was it because we were calling the names of some of your friends?
Sorry! If you want to be veritable champions of positive change in Cameroon, you should not be afraid to name and shame. It doesnot surfice for you to publish the list from UB Authorities. Carry out your own investigation and publish your findings without fear or favour.
The fraud taking place in that Institution is too much for your newspaper to turn a blind eye.
What is good for the goose is also good for the gander.
Except you guys mean the word 'Slander' only comes to light when it concerns UB Authorities.
Affaire a suivre!

Spako

rexon

Spako,

The post was trying to protect those connected to the system. Those of us who know the system very well knew that the list were just names of scapegoats.

rexon

Information reaching my newsroom is purporting that it is a common practice now at UB for rich students to buy their places into departments that they do not have sufficient requirements to study into.

Additionally, it is also a common practice now at UB for foreign students to bribe the authorities to be classified as home (Cameroonian) students.

If the authorities in la republique are really serious about curbing fraud, they should investigate these issues.

fon lawrence

This is the GCE Board that we fought for in the North West province. Today, the very South West province enjoying from our sweat are those trying to destroy the image of our Anglophone GCE. What is happening with the GCE in the South West province will never happen in the North West province. If the proprietor and principal of the school involved in this shameful act were North Westerners, then hell would have fallen. Since only South Westerners are involved, people like Agbormbai are not talking clear enough. In fact, the South West province should join with Littoral province and leave the North West province as the only Anglophone province. Anglophones can only win if and only if this distinction is made. When Dr, Yembe was GCE registrar, no one could hear this mess.

Hello Fon,

You don't need to panic. When we write we know! Your writings always conjoures images of greatness, excellence, standards and impeccability.

But.....guess what??? You're missing so much from the Liberator's forum. You'll be shocked that before you join you'll find Biya and his oligarchs answering criminal charges like Saddam and his gang.

We're waiting for you comrade. Come one guy!

Akoson,
You just said the right thing to Fon,because i was just telling Rexon,Spako,and Tayong to hold themselves together ,because Fon Lawrence will never stoop so low.When i read the article the first thing i did was to throw an eye on the name.I immediately noticed that Fon was written with a small letter,so i did no longer pay credence to the story.Even the language is that of a hitman,out to weep up sentiments.

Justice

IMPAAS Proprietor, Henry Tabe, Principal, Fidelis Enow, Dean of Studies and the Bursar, Ebot Tabe, through legal Counsel, Barrister Francis Bache, responding to a report the Board published on the June 2006 Examination malpractice at accommodation centre

079-IMPAAS Tiko and 107 Tiko External on September 15, 2006 noted inter alia: that on August 16, Miss Manyi Ria Abangage, during one of the EEC jury sessions, indicted the Board in the following words: "…some of you here, are involved in the act I have committed…" which the Board did not contradict.

The school authorities thought that there was a well-calculated plan by the Board, to conceal the truth, as Mr. Johannes Mbong, Deputy Registrar in charge of examinations, expressly requested the Board Superintendents and the Principal of IMPAAS not to carry out any investigation with regard to Manyi Ria Abangage on the reason that "her case was not two scripts but one script with two different handwritings".

That Mr. Abangage admitted in the State Counsel's office in Tiko (and indeed re-echoing Mr. Mbong) "that the wife gave some money to someone at the Board…" They, therefore, argued that Mrs. Abangage had direct links with the Board.

Denying Authorities' Involvement

The Board's report had stated in part: " The Proprietor of IMPAAS, Mr. Stephen Takang Mbu actively obstructed the investigation by preventing his nephew, Jovalis Mbeng Mbu, one of the masterminds of the malpractice from telling the truth.

The letter said the report, supposedly obtained from a penetrating investigation contained many factual errors and was based on rumour and speculations and that the conclusions were convoluted and grossly exaggerated. The IMPAAS Counsel also viewed the report as mean, vicious and tendentious.

Barrister Bache's argument is that there is an ongoing Preliminary Inquiry, PI, being conducted by the Deputy State Counsel, Legal Department Tiko, wherein Mbu is a star witness for the prosecution. That Mbu lodged the complaint of the examination scam at the Legal Department Tiko and actually caused the arrest and incarceration of Jovalis Mbeng Mbu.

That the Board, which claimed to have uncovered the forgery, did not lodge any complaint with the authority. He questioned if it was not a contradiction that Mbu who caused the investigation was at the same time obstructing it as the Board claimed in its report. To the IPASS Counsel, the Board is not clean and has a case to answer.

Concerning the other administrative authorities of IMPAAS implicated by the Board in the scam, the lawyer questioned if it is not preposterous that the Board hastily concluded that the Principal, Dean of Studies and the Bursar were involved in the malpractice.

According to him, there is incontrovertible evidence that Ebot Tabe, the Bursar, was out of Cameroon during the period from June 8 to 24, 2006 and that it was impossible him to have provided the answer booklets from abroad.

The letter stated that during the visit to IMPAAS by the State Counsel, investigator and others, Jovalis Mbu declared that Fidelis Enow, Dean of Studies, was not party to the examination fraud perpetrated by him and others.

He stated that the Bursar gave him three answer sheets in April 2006, which were for the 2005 session of the GCE exams, but was not aware of the purpose of the request. Bache argued that nowhere throughout the investigation was the Principal mentioned for aiding and abetting the scam.

The letter noted that the Board based its report on extra-judicial confessions, in which case, Board officials extracted the statements from the suspects.

Inconsistency At Stage of Fraud Discovery

The IMPAAS legal Counsel noted that there was a discrepancy as to whom and at what stage the racket was unveiled. The Board, he wrote, claimed it was at the booking-in-stage while it was clearly stated in the Board's result booklet that the source of the discovery was the Chief Examiner's report.

That two GCE Board Superintendents, Justin Fomanka and Winifred Atemnkeng signed at the end of examinations declarations stating: " We further declare that all irregularities were adequately reported."

That the Chief Examiner only marks coded scripts where all personal data are sealed and that it would be humanly impossible for any examiner to identify a candidate who has two answer sheets.

The Board, it should be recalled, had on September 15, published a report indicating that the Principal, Dean of Studies and Bursar of IMPAAS Tiko, had aided and abetted malpractice at the June 2006 GCE examinations.

The report faulted the Proprietor of IMPAAS for actively obstructing investigation, by preventing his nephew, Jovalis, "one of the masterminds of the malpractice" from telling the truth. The Board then, suspended the Proprietor, Principal, Dean of studies, Bursar and the school from all examinations organised by it.

Nenali Ebot Tabe

Thank you Justice for telling the entire world what your findings were concerning the above GCE fraud. I am consoled that the judiciary still has some integrity because I am a living witness to the fact that MR. Ebot Tabe was in Nigeria as from the 8th to 24th June 2006.
