A good article but with no conclusion.So what is the present state of matters in UB,I mean as you went to press? Is this story about four student dead true or false? Did the orals go to the end? Which list was finally followed? THE POST, these are questions we urgently need answers.Has anyone a better idea?

Akoson

I asked somebody to HIT traitors on the head. They didn't listen. Now they're rushing and crying around like a kid scared by a mere shadow.

I still state here that the students should come out en mess. Go to the streets. Capture all the colonial gendarmes and armies. Seize their weapons. Fight them and force them out of the UB campus. Slay lecturers and "profs" who're accomplices.

Then PRAY!

rexon

Lies, Lies, Lies and All Lies, These people are all thesame. They work like a remote control. The remote control is in their occultic chambers head office in Yaounde.

In a proper academic setting, Lambi, Ngoh, the Minister of higher education, Prime Minister, etc are not supposed to be directly involved in anything relating to the admission of these students. All they are supposed to know is if the best students who applied for positions have been admitted without any qualms. They are many ways to check these of course, they should sign the final list which in my opinion, should be a matter of a single minutes. The VC's, Registrar, Minister etc are supposed to be merely involved in strategic planning and admininstration of the University. When they decide on the resources available and the number of students to be admitted, they should leave the final decision to junion coleagues which are habitually directors of admissions for the respective programs. Once the directors of admissions comes up with a list, Lambi have to sign and send it to the minister to sign also and the students start their classes. All these stories that Lambi said this or that, Ngoh, Akenji, Achidi Achu, Musonge, Inoni, etc, have this or that name to put in, or is implicated in the case for this or that reason just explains the kind of criminals who are managing that Junta.

I call on all students not to listen to anyone. Let no one think that he has autonomy what is right or wrong in the Southern Cameroons. Strike, Strike and Strike untill all these criminals are booted out of power including Mr Biya.

sango

It is sad that students have been killed in another strike at UB?Are there still riot police in the campus?Are the students back in classes?We need to know these things. The students should alos learn from Nelson Mandela,Ghandhi, Martin Luther King about the wisdom and the power of non-violent demonstrations.If this is done, it will be to thier advantage because the administration will always act violently and this will give them the right amount of public support.The protest will then take a broader platform.

MOTABENAMA

ITS A VERY DIFFICULT DECISION FOR THE VC TO MAKE. BUT AS A LEADER, WHEN YOU DECIDED TO SERVE YOUR PEOPLE, YOU GO THE EXTRA MILE OF PUTTING YOUR INTEREST AT STAKE FOR THE INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE YOU SERVE. LAMBI IS A MAN I KNOW TO A CERTAIN EXTENT, HE CAN DO IT IF HE TRIES A BIT TO FOGET THINKING ABOUT HOW HIS CHILDREN AND FAMILY SURVIVE IF I AM THROWN OFF MY POSITION FOR ALL WHAT WE HAVE AS HUMANS HAVE BEEN ACHEIVED THROUGH HARD WORK. SO WHEN AN AVENUE IS CLOSED IT DOES NOT SIGNAL THE END OF LIFE. LOOK AT FRU NDI, HE STARTED A PARTY, WAS GIVEN A HOUSE ARREST, BUT SINCE HIS COURSE WAS A COURSE FOR THE PEOPLE, HE NEVER STARVED. LAMBI THE SAME WILL BE DONE FOR YOU IF YOU STAND FOR YOUR PEOPLE RATHER THAN YOUR MENTORS IN YAOUNDE. GONE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THEY WILL WANT YOUR HEAD FOR MAKING FIRM DECISIONS. STUDENTS FROM UB ARE HIGHLY RESPECTED ALL OVER EUROPE AND AMERICA. NOT UNTILL RECENTLY THAT THE POST DOROTHY NJEUMA YEARS HAVE BEEN MARRED BY LOADS OF FRADULENT UB TRANSCRIPTS FLOATING AROUND. BEHOLD THOSE OF US WHO GENUINELY PASSED THROUGH THE SYSTEM, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF THE POINEER BATCH ARE TODAY PhD HOLDERS AND WE ARE PROUD OF OUR BACGROUND AND WE SO MUCH WANT THIS TO BE THE SAME IN GENERATIONS TO COME. PROF LAMBI TELL THE MINISTER THAT YOU WILL USE THE OFFICIAL LIST OR ASK HIM TO COME AND CONDUCT THE INTERVIEW BY HIMSELF. THIS WILL PUT A SMILE IN THE FACES OF THE DEATH STUDENTS. AFTER ALL IN THE DEVELOPED WORLD PEOPLE DO RESIGN. WHY DO WE ALWAYS WANT TO DIE IN ACTIVE SERVICE IN CAMEROON? VC LAMBI, SPEAK YOUR TRUTH CLEARLY AND QUIETLY, AND IN PEACE THERE WILL BE SILENCE AND REMEMBER EVEN THE FOOLISH AND THE IGNORANT HAVE A CONTRIBUTION TO MAKE SO GIVE US A CHANCE ITS OUR TURN

The exam apparently was MCQ.This means that it was necessarily fair,no value judgements as sometimes happens when it comes to essays.The 1st francophone was 600th out 800! This is what the Minister and the Francophone community cannot stomach.Mr. Minister,Sir,your folks just did not make it.They have only themselves to blame.
Where the exams culturally biased? No way!This is science ,man.Anglpohones have been writing Francophone exams for long,and these are definitely biased and in favour of Francophones.They should have a taste of their own medecine.Francophones do perform well in UB,especially in the sciences.Those who wrote this particular exams were not good enough,and it should stay that way.Medical school does not produce SDOs,who are basically involved in corruption and rigging of elections.This is a matter of life and death.Doctor the list for the ENAM entrance if you like,BUT do not try to Determine who can become a Doctor!

Ma Mary

GGE 'A' level science is a lot more rigorous and indepth. It it is the baseline for the entrance exam, it puts people with a bacc background at a strong disadvantage. Back in the day, it was impossible for Southern Cameroons candidates to get admission at the LRC engineering school (Polytechnique) although they did just fine in UK, Nigeria, India or USA. If LRC would like some affirmative action spots at UB, they should do it properly under clear, transparent guidelines and not by colonial diktat.

Southern Cameroons top secondary schools (Saker, Sasse up to Sacred Heart, Bali etc) are being turned into mini incubators to prepare LRC children for the real world outsidee of the francophonie enclave. In the process they displace our children.

Why do they not just cut to the chase and phase out the French system completely? Open their own schools teaching their children in this system that that they evidently recognize as better? Nice business opportunity. No they must enslave us; steal our resources, destroy our institutions.

They would not phase out a system that has served them badly, for political reasons and for fear that France would come in and nuke them. If you jokers give up france, there might be something to talk about. Otherwise, adieu.

Kumbaboy

Ma Mary,

There is a simple solution: All students, East and West of the Mungo should boycott FRENCH. French is the language of slavery, annexation and global disadvantage.

There is not a single industrialising Third World country in the Franophonie.

BOYCOT! BOYCOT! BOYCOT! BOYCOT! BOYCOT!

1.This recidivist attitude of the
bloodsuckers in Yaounde must not go
unpunished this time around!
2. ANGLOPHONE PARENTS should holdback all
their children from attending school,from
nursery to University levels.
3. ANGLOPHONE PARENTS should stay away from
work for as long as the students demands
are not met in UB.

MORE IDEAS ARE ON THE WAY!
REMEMBER! If you kill an Arab in Iraq,more
keep flowing over the borders
from Lybia,Egypt,Syria etc

ALL MEMBERS IN THIS FORUM SHOULD TRUMPET THIS MESSAGE FOR THE ATTENTION OF THE
ANGLOPHONE COMMUNITY!

It never rains but it will pour on those UB administration who thought they could join the government to manipulate the results.They will pay for the price.This will set a good example for the rest of La Republique to copy as an eye-opener for corrupt practices in all the sectors of the country.

It has begun.The students of UB have thrown the gauntlet.The fight to reinstore our anglophone identity and pride has started.True to the spirit of democratic militancy,the universities,like all other universities in Africa which began the fight to liberate their people's from predatory regimes has begun.Politicians and politcal parties have failed us and the students of UB have proven that they safeguarding the future of that nation,by standing against the most putrifying ill in that society and which has eaten deeply into its fabrics.I am proud and relieved that the youths are conscious and ready to let history's sanction on the totalitarian regime in place.I am indeed proud of them.KUDO's to those young patriots.We shall join them when the time comes.

Every good University has an active student union and an Alma Matter. The student union should have a student newspaper to encourage informative debates.

IF Paul Biya & Inoni had learnt a bit of leadership experience, including standing up for something much greater than themselves and in the face of flying bullets, Cameroon would be a better country today.

Viva UB Students!

ADAMA KWIKEH

ALL ANGLOPHONES, SOUTHERN CAMEROONS AT HOME AND ABROAD, UB STUDENTS’ UNION AND UB GENERAL STUDENT BODY.

We already have the facts at hand.

The exam was organized and supervised by the GCE Board.

The scripts were corrected using computer technology.

A little over 800 students sat for the exam.

60 students slots were available in the Medical Faculty.

The first FROG came in the 600th position on the written part of the entrance exam.

127 applicants all of Southern CamerOOnian extraction thus meritoriously were selected for the oral examination.

Fame Ndongo decided to add 26 FROGS who didn’t sit for the exam.

UB students rejected this outright corruption and Lambi (theVC) accepted.

Hell broke loose and 11 student lives were lost directly or indirectly.

Fame Ndongo didn’t know what to do and decided to be speaking via Lambi.
This is the reason why Lambi vomited rhetorically that the Minister’s list will be maintained.

Fame Ndongo not knowing what else to do, decides to increase the slots from 60 to 84 to accommodate the FROGS who never sat for the exam.

WE ALL KNOW THAT UNTIL THE NUMBER OF SLOTS IS INCREASED FROM 60 TO 6OO CAN ANY FROG FEATURE AMONG THE LIST OF THOSE TO BE ADMITTED i.e. IF THERE WERE TO BE NO ORALS.

Drawing from the facts that we all know, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE shall there be any FROG on the list of students admitted into the UB Medical Faculty at least for this year.

LET EVERYONE BE ON THE WATCHOUT WHEN THE FINAL LIST IS PUBLISHED.

TO THOSE WHO WILL BE ADMITTED AT THE END OF THE DAY:
If you notice any FROGS at lectures deliver them to the public to be stoned to death.
For they are the reason for their parents to be doing what they are doing to the detriment of the unfortunate you and I.

WHAT A SHAME - Lambi

I have never known academics could sell themselves so cheap.
