Good Job Sir.
more need to be done, but this is already a step in the right direction.

Mr Police Boss. You are doing a wonderful job. But corruption in the Cameroon Police is not abaiting but rather getting worse.I suggest that Police ID badges must be worn and a hotline be created to report corrupt acts for investigation. Also plain clothe men be deployed to check irresponsible acts by your men as done in other countries.

Police Boss cautioned uncollaborative officers.
They have not been fired!!!

Tita Mofaw

Good job my foot.
Nothing is ever transparent in la republic. Police officers suspended for corruption.

By who? The police boss. Is he the court? So if I am a taxi driver and I extort money from the public it is sufficient for the president of taxi drivers union to suspend me for 3 months and after that I continue driving? The problem in la republic is that it is a state of lawlessness.

Muki StoneHall

Bullshit!!
Did these guys commit crimes or not.If so has the Delegate General become a magistrate?These guys are supposed to prosecuted and sentenced.All this suspensions are just all bullshit.

Ma Mary

In the Southern Cameroons, it was established practice for sting operations to be conducted against officers suspected of corruption. If a police officer tries to extort you, the internal affairs unit would provide you with marked notes, which would then be used to arrest and prosecute the dirty cop. It was a big deal to be caught like this, and takers of bribes could not hold their heads up in public.

When this tool was presented to la republique in the early 70s, they recoiled in fright and called it entrappment. This, is no big deal. It is being done for show. There is no followup, no system.

I thought they are not seeing what these theives in the name of public security officers have been doing in the Douala airport.It was almost during this period that I was returning to Asia when a prominent businessman in Douala came with 10 different passports with a 10 man delegation of young travellers to embark on a journey to Cyprus.I was in the office of this officer inside the Airport and I saw how he collected 'bribe' from this man letting all these 10 men and women to travel without a visa.

What strikes me much is his sudden suspension just about this period.I was there for similar purpose for my junior brother who was to travel to New Zealand on a student visa yet as they don't care whether you have a genuine visa or not they bring all sorts of motive and finally you cannot go without tips.99 days will always hold in most cases.Three months suspension is not enough because what these people collect per/day in that port is far more than their salaries,since it will only mean eating what they have reaped for the past years then resuming their nromal duties.Dismissal might be a good solution at the end of the day.

Mr. Police Boss,

What have you done to the forces of La republique who beat and even burn down innocent Southern Cameroonians, Killed students during the University of Buea student strike?, What are you doing to see that Police officers in Cameroon stop the abuse of human rights. It will be shameful if you think the Southern Cameroonian are left for death and la republique to live with corruption.
Fork you

Fritzane,

Which embassy/office in Cameroon is responsible for student visas for New Zealand? I will be grateful if you can give me this information.

Best regards.

Fritzane Kiki HK


Rexon,
Check out the requirements set out in the Application for a Student Visa Information Sheet.But visitor's visas can be obtained in Nigeria but South Africa takes care of Student Visas.Most of the forms for application can be found in their website. But that of Student Visas may be downloaded directly from their websites especially that of the New Zealand Immigration Service.

All Cameroonians wishing to travel should send their completed application form to the High Commission in Pretoria.Most often visas are granted within a week as was the case of my junior man and sent through express mail which is paid for.Send the completed file through this address as follows;

New Zealand High Commission

ALPHONSE SIYAM SIWE NAMES NAMES.

...Biya escapes the long arm of the law by the skin of the teeth.

...Vice Prime minister, Ahmadou Ali may find himself in Kongdengui including some world bank officials, if Cameroon is truly a land of the law.

...this information filtered out from an unquestionably reliable source.

Lawyers for Former Douala Ports Authority General Manager, Alphonse Siyam Siwe and Board Chairman, Edouard Etonde Ekotto now standing trial for the embezzlement of 42 billion francs have raked up a list of some 100 personalities and institutions whom they claim are also involved in the scam and should mount the witness box. The list released in two parts contains names of serving and former paliamentarians, ministers, and foreign firms. Even some World Bank officials have been cited in the very explosive document.Prominent among those cited are the Vice Prime Minister, Minister of Justice and keeper of the Seals, Amadou Ali, Minister of State incharge of Territorial Administration, Marafat Amidou Yaya, Minister of Commerce , Luc Magloire Atangana and Former Communication Minister Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo.

At the time of printing some 100 personalities had been implicated. The matter which came up for hearing last Tuesday and Wednesday is being bogged down over procedurial objections being raised by the defence and was adjourned to March 6. It should be noted that on Tuesday the Court Registrar collapsed when the matter was called up. Some top officials of the World Bank and foreign companies have been implicated in the financial scandal at the Douala Autonomous Port as a new list of suspects has been established bringing the number of suspects to 51. The head of the World Bank mission to Cameroon , Madam Florence Charlier and an expert with the Bank, Koyasse Faustin have been cited by judicial sources as potential suspects.

Five foreign companies have also been cited for investigations. Among them is the notorious French company Group Boller? whose founder is highly blamed for provoking the civil war in Ivory Coast. He is accused of signing non-tenable contracts to clear the bed of the dockyard. A Dutch naional Renier Vanherel is also expected to answer questions
related to the role of his company, Damen Shipyard Rotterdam in the scandal.

Three Japanese companies, including the Japan Bank of International Cooperation (JBIC), Mitsui and Co LTD, 2-1, OTHEMCHI 1-CHOME, CHIYODA, TOKYO , Ocean Consulting Japan (OJC). All these companies are suspected of trafficking money.The sources say most of the new suspects (40) are likely to end up in jail giving the compelling incriminating evidence against them.

The list which The Sun got, also contained the names of former ministers, serving
parliamentarians, highly placed business persons, foreigners, and banking institutions as well individuals of high standing, including the president of the Bar Council Barrister Charles Tchoungang, who will bear testimony to a colleague's involvement in the scam. A former minister likely to be jailed in the long run, is Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo who The Sun was told got his hands soiled while signing a contract, at the time he was Chief of Cabinet in the Prime Minister's office with a Japanese company, METSUI to clear the bed of the dockyard. It is alleged Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo made kick backs and render the contract fishy. Christopher Nsahlai, one time Minister for Transport, and currently board chair of the Douala autonomous port, is also suspected of shady deals with Siyam Siewe the detained former Managing Director of the port. Another outstanding revelation was the involvement of one of the Deputy Speakers of the national assembly, Jacob Fosi who is CPDM Member of Parliament for the Menoua, in the west province. As manager of SAFRIC, a company involved in clearing the bed of the dockyard, he is thought to have signed out unjustified sums of money. Another MP, Bernard Forju of the Lebialem constituency will also answer charges.

One of the suspects Zibi Frank Martin was arrested recently with several millions of francs cfa on him. He is even said to have stocked some of the money in his pants. Officials of the World Bank are also being sited in the scandal. Sources close to the dossier did not say when the new suspects will be heard. But it is highly expected that Cameroonian authorities would seek help from the international community to bring those of them who are abroad to answer the charges at the Wouri High Court.

We shall get you posted as development unfolds.

The worried Son!

wiseman

Well Mr Police boss,i will like to say thank you for a job well done for setting a very good example on such un trusted and corrupt nationals and i do hope that is juts the begining of a new life for all the Cameroonian cops.I do hope this will also send a very strong message to all especially the so call traffic police men and their coddupt leaders as well.I espect more better sanction next time and if possible such corrupters should even lost their jobs,be trailed and even send to jail because for some of them that bad blood is already in their blood streams and even after the sanctions,they will still continue with their normal routin.So next time i espect more hasher sanctions.And from what LIZ has written above i will also like to say if all he said is true then all those involved need to brought before the law,trailed and jail as well so that the others will learn.Thank you

THIS IS A GREAT STEP TOWARDS AMMELEORATING THE DEVASTING AND SHAMEFUL ATTITUTE OF THE MEN IN UNIFORM IN CAMEROON. THESE GUYS ARE PAID WITH TAX PAYERS MONEY TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS YEST THEY ACT AS WEAPONS AGAINST THE PEOPLE WHOM THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT. IF MORE OF SUCH SUSPENSIONS CAN TAKE PLACE THEN I AM SURE WITHOUT ANY DOUBT THAT A POLICE OFFICER IN CAMEROON WILL MAKE SURE HE OR SHE ACTS WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE LAW AS STIPULATED IN THE CONSTITUTION. VERY BRAVE STEP MR DELEGATE GENERAL AND I HOPE MORE OF THE BAD SEEDS WITHIN THE CAMEROON POLICE FORCE WOULD BE BROUGHT TO ORDER. THIS IS BECAUSE ENDING YOUR PLAN OF CLEANSING THE POLICE FORCE FROM THE FEW WHO HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED WILL NOT DO YOU RADICAL PLAN OF CORRECTING THEM ANY GOOD
