This is actually a step in the right direction by Dr Mrs Dorothy Njeuma. I am glad all angles of academic fraud is being handled by the University Authorities. The main problem i find here is whether children of bigmen who happen to be involved in such malpractices are being disciplined also. Recently, Ngoh and Co of UB published a list of 127 students that they claimed have forged UB degrees after editing and removing the names of their relatives, big men children and acquiantances. Also, of the several students who were alledged to have forged UB degrees, the names of children of these Bigmen was removed and only those of the poor and helpless given to the security services. That is what some of us do not understand. It is very important that when anybody takes up the challenge to fight corruption, they should not do it with fear and favour. I hope and believe that is the step Njeuma and Co are taking and some children will not be protected and others are sanctioned. That in my view will not be a fight against corruption

Tita Mofaw

I can trust you Njeuma when it comes to this type of fights (one that does not implicate the government). Anywhere I think Yaounde 1 should be lucky to have you around because from the look of things u seem to have succeeded in enforcing some order in that institution.

To The Post

I think this news organ has international recognition and some repeated errors shouldn't be tolerated. I should be the nth person correcting this error here . We dont "write" exams but we either take an exam or sit for an exam. I hope the Post takes this gentlemanly since we hold them in very high esteem.

As for the corruption unveiled I think I will like to corroborate Rexon here very highly. We take a thorough bath or shower with water flowing from head to toe and not the other way round. Commendable initiative by Njeuma and co but where is the brain behind the network? The teacher in question!

Until big heads starts rolling all these may simply be some window dressing in my view. This is similar to the case of Ondo Ndong swindling whopping fortunes with the help of accomplices from the Presidency but all efforts have been made by the judges to delete any link with the Presidency.

As long as the cankerworm that eats up the maize isn't removed all insecticides pouring simply washes off but dirts. Njeuma, thats a good job but if you must have to make a name in history for fighting corruption then you'll have have to bite even the finger that feeds you! Njeuma can you do it?
If yes then , you would have added another wonder to the seventh wonders existing now.

Well countrymen thats the country we all belong to .
Hey! Can someone help out there?Where the hell is this fellow of a man called Randy Sa'ah , reporter for BBC in Cameroon? What is happening with this guy? Please anyone in contact with this guy should please help with his contacts. This guy needs a real reprimand for keeping the world uninformed about the horrible things happening in Cameroon. Please we need his contacts.

I graduated from Dschang since 2002 and that was a common practice. Mr Seino in the department of Zoology is a specialist in selling marks and sleeping with the desperate anglophone girls for marks. If you are a guy dating a girl that Seino likes, you will never graduate. What is actually wrong in Cameroon? You struggled 24/7 to study genuinely and still you can't get anything above 10/20. At last students are forced to go to Bonas in Yaounde to forge certificates to be able to study abroad. Cameroon to me is worse than hell. I have a very strong conviction that Cameroon will never see day light with all these malpractices from the topmost down to the students.
Another professor in Dschang is Dr Focho of the botany department. These guys need to know they are married and should let people's daughter have their self dignity and the right to choose who to date. In one girl's words "if you no sleep with Focho, you go do na how?" Imagine! That is not all about the corruption in Dschang. In the scularite of the science faculty, there was this Mitchelle who took right down to 500frs just to print out your academic profile already stored on their system. something students need absolutely free. The stories are endless and one can go on and on. This tell you how long we still get to go. I am really ashamed and I feel like never mentioning anywhere that I ever got degree from Dschang. If I had a way, I could have trashed that nonsense and gone back to school. Afterall you can't even get a job anywhere with that nonsense.

rexon

Abesong John,

We need courageous people like you to help clean the system. Unfortunately, our own Southern Cameroonian detractors here will tell you that you are blaspheming in calling names. A typical Example of that Focho Type is Ngoh in UB. what a shame?

Danny Boy

Mr, Tayong, are you still there? I deliberately refused commenting on this story earlier because you and I know that this question of "sexually transmitted marks" is an old one indeed.
I remember during my primary school days, after a mock Exam at a school in the adjoining village, we the pupils from my school stopped somewhere as we were travelling home and decided that none of us would return that very day to our school for the evening classes that had been instituted in preparation for the First school leaving certificate Examinations. Next morning when we returned to school, we could not believe our ears. The Headmaster was able to tell us who said what.
Apparently, he had his mole(lover) within our rank, our classmate whom he married a year later! 40 years on, I still take a slight dig at her for the treachery.
Did she benefit from this dalliance whilst still a pupil? Of course she did. While some of us were being sent to till the school farm, she and the other girls will be assigned to some menial task in the staff quarters.
There you have it. Power corrupts. Would have loved to qoute from the Good Book, " Let ye who is without sin, cast....." I wonder how some of these persons got to where they are today! Meritocracy? The jury is out.

Abesong John

Mr Tayong,

Randy Sa'ah might have been corrupted by Ondo Ndong to sell the image of Cameroon positively to the outside world. Remember Ondo Ndong confessed he used part of the 52 billion to buy a good name for Cameroon through the international media. If Randy Sa'ah got his own share of the money, he should be turning his back to anything negative about Cameroon. And since everything about Cameroon is negative, Randy has gone mute for years in Cameroon. I wonder if BBC pays him and for what job. Just wondering aloud.

tayong

Abesong John
The worst thing about Randy is that three weeks ago, to my greatest dismay I followed this guy reporting for BBC from Cameroon. And what was his story? Goodness! " Cameroon govt gives marriage licences to polygamists to avoid adultery". So you wouldn't be joking to say this guy's lips might have been oiled by The Ondo Ndongs.

Come to think of it, The twain Buea University masacres, Brutal arrests and detention of Southern Cameroon leaders, The Ondo Ndongs billions theft trails , The Killings in Ndu, The Killings in Tole, etc etc etc...but all Mr Sa'ah was interested in was the award of marriage certificates to polygamist! What a disgrace. If a thatched house collapsed in Nigeria or ´Ghana and killed cows not even humans BBC or CNN or the major news organs will carry it live but come to Cameroon, if it's not Chad-Cameroon Pipeline Project you wont hear anymore.

Guys
I have a suggestion . I have contacted a trained journalist from UB to act as an anchorman for a website which we intend to create christianed "Minute by Minute" in memory of the late Akwanka Joe Ndifor´s CRTV MBM in the 80s. He shall post videos of live events as they happen in Cameroon for the whole world to see.But as poor as the nation is , this guy needs financial support to start off. Ads from this website shall go for his salary and the rest for Freedom movements or so. Can anyone support this initiative?
Tayong waiting.

Kudos ma'am. I know that fighting fraud in this system is like fighting against nature.

Aunty J.

Madam,

Keep fighting and crushing the njangas and the mololos while the sharks and dolphins keep prancing happily like dogs released from their chains. What sultry degrees one even gets from State Universities !!!! Inshallah

Tita Mofaw

After all the more njangas (njanja motto) and mololos that are crushed the better for my daily okro soup and garri. Wherfe on earth will take money to buy shark and dolphins?

lionking

This is in no way connected to fighting corruption.The source of this malpractice is the lecturers.The student got no when they are forced and toned to used crude methods to may it history in this unrespectable institution.If this should therefore have the face of fighting corruption,then Njeuma has to carefully select this lectures and make them known to the public without any exception.

lionking

correction,students got no other choice.

M Nje

1) Corruption is a systemic problem. When ever there is a bureaucratic system with power in the hands of very few, corruption is all but certain to exist. People are tempted to bribe their way up to met those who have the power in order to get favors. You cannot even talk about fighting corruption without putting in place a system of check an balances and openness in management of public funds. In this country government financial records are secret. Secrecy gives room for corruption.

2) Any highly regulated system gives room for bribery. People are tempted to just pay anything to avoid the cumbersome regulation. When you have a tax code like the one in Cameroun for example, a code that is a nightmare, people turn to look for short cuts. DEREGULATION will held reduce such a temptation.

So madame Rector is just touching the surface of the problem. There is no other important place to start any fight against corruption than to obey the laws in Cameroun. Let every public service declare their asset as the constitution of La Republique Francaise Du Cameroun states.

IN THE MIDST OF STINKING CORRUPTION
THEY COME UP YET WITH SOME DIGRESSION
TO STEER THE PUBLIC AWAY FROM THEIR CONCENTRATION

IN THIS BELOVED COUNTRY, OVER WHICH MANY HAVE CONTINUED TO CRY, WITCHES AND WIZARDS CONTINUE THEIR CRAFT IN DEFIANCE OF THE SCORCHING MID DAY SUN.

THEY HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE ANON...NO THEY NEED NOT WAIT FOR DARKNESS TO COME BEFORE PRACTICING THEIR NOCTURNAL CRAFT.

IT IS GOOD TO HEAR THAT LIMUNGA NJEUMA HAS TRACKED DOWN GRADE MERCHANTS AT UNIYAO.BUT IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT NAMES MIGHT/SHALL NEVER BE BUPLICIZED. SO WHY MAKE THE ASSERTIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE, IF YOU WONT GIVE TO THE PEOPLE THEIR DUE.?

I SEE BEHIND THIS A DIGRESSION...YES THEY WANT THE PUBLIC TO REMAIN FOCUSED ON THE WISHFUL THINKING THAT A LIST OF NAMES WILL SOMEDAY COME OUT, WHILE THE WICTHES AND WIZARDS QUIETLY CARRY OUT THEIR WIZADRY WITHIN THE STATE MACHINERY.

I HATE POLITICS, AND THE MORE I SEE BEYOND THEIR GIMMICKS, THE MORE I GRASP THE HYPOCRICY OF THEIR ACTIONS...

IF MBAMBA IS SERIOUS , LET HER READ THE NAMES OR ...
LET HER STAY QUIET
