This is a glaring example that the govt of Cameroon (al least the Almighty SDOs and DOs)is not ready for democracy .

The civil society has to be more than prepared for more than just speech reading in order to defend the people they represent. Their voices need to be heard loud and clear in and out of Cameroon.

More from us soonest!



Most world leaders worth their salt are out in New York trying to sell their ideas to the rest of the UN members. What is our own absentee leader doing back in CMR, which he is visiting after a brief/long stay abroad? You guessed right. He is there to attract attention by moving a few (old) friends around the dining table. That is what is called a cabinet reshuffle in our own part of the world where public opinion does not matter; where people are brought back nearly from their graves to come back to dinner; where the youth (derogatorily known as the leaders of tomorrow) are sidelined, and the fruits of the whole basket are kept for a handful of friends of the mystical orders, etc.
Who will bring our CMR to the marketplace? Is it only going to be football whenever possible? Leaders of pariah states still go to NY and have their say on the way they see things. Who will speak for us? I weep for CMR. I am in tears, please help.

Eric Ngonji Njungwe

It is a pity that the government is still very determined to stall all efforts at democratic reforms in Cameroon. Perhaps this piece of advice for the government: civil society organizations must be allowed function because they are in most respects, the voice of the people. They are responsible for monitoring government actions, making inputs and guiding policy makers so that government can better serve the interest of its people. Preventing civil society organizations from holding seminars or from operating freely in the country is a step too far into autocracy. I wonder where Cameroon is heading to. Cameroonians must be strong in the face of all the hurdles of the government. We must continue to support civil society organizations and pressure the government into implementing the much needed democratic reforms in Cameroon. Progressive Initiative for Cameroon (PICAM) is an NGO established to strengthen civil society involvement in the affairs of the country. Visit to find out about PICAM.
