Mr Delegate,
I might hate your office because of it not being electable but I praise you personally for daring to dream. If national leaders could even dream just a bit of that Cameroon would have been years ahead.
I don't know how often you have flown over Europe in the day and glance out of the aircraft's window and take just a peak of the beauty below.I am a frequent flyer and do that all the time but always end up broken hearted because I just wonder what is going on in the minds of our leaders who criss cross Europe every time. Flying over continental Europe to the Mediterranean you see an example of visionary development, order and magnificence. But living in Europe itself is more intriguing. You see how in their major cities streets are constructed and maintained on a daily basis. The curious thing here is that much of the work is done by hand and slowly too. It might take more than a month to do up to a kilometer of tarring in the city but they keep on doing it in an orderly manner allowing traffic to flow albeit slowly side by side with the work. No street is left to decay to impassable levels before repair work is started. But when your plane crosses the Med. sea into continental African, apart from the natural hostile sahara desert that you see below, th degradation of human habitation meets the eye immediately. The situation worsens as you descend further into equatorial Africa where apart from utter chaos in city dwellings the filth that accompanies it is beyond belief.
Delegate, sir, what I cannot understand is the willingness to apply even few existing laws in the cities and country at large concerning planning and general order. Why should any official bother if any citizen gets angry when he/she is cited of violating city planning law? Why should his or her anger be of concern to anybody? The answer is simple. This citizen obviously sees himself or herself as a victim of a double standard application of the law. And that is why since officials refuse to respect our own laws,or apply the laws objectively across the board citizens have the reasons to complain as victims of laws they might even be conscious they have violated. That is why an official feels guilty or uneasy about citizens' reaction about any laws.
But Mr Delegate, sir, accept my congratulations for even daring to dream about a place which is above everything else your own home. If many like you can even go that far then there is hope. But what we see is what looks like a brain dead government on self imposed life support which carries a nuclear bomb detonator on the machine which will go off if the machine is turned off. So we are at the mercy of a vegetable on life support.
Once again congratulations to the GD of Victoria Urban Council daring to dream.
Fon E.
