People should not start jumping about Ondo Ndong being jailed because once upon a time, Saddam Doh Gah Hussein of Balikumbat was jailed but has since gotten out on a false ill-health pretext and has become more dangerous and a menace to society than ever. Ondo Ndong blundered when he said he gave money to Chantal Biya's Charity; had he not step on Biya's toes this case would still be on trial with endless adjournments. By the way when you look at the list of those who crippled the banks in Cameroon in the 1980s and 1990s (published by Le Messager sometime last year) and the list of those who have been embezzling outrighly, there are hardly many Anglophones included; which is one more proof that the marriage is not working. A divorce is inevitable. Check this BBC story about Nigeria's new President declaring his assets and showing that he has no "holdings" outside Nigeria. Biya should do same and then we can talk.


Nigeria's new leader 'worth $5m'
Story from BBC NEWS
Published: 06/29/07
http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/1/hi/world/africa/6252442.stm

The new president of Nigeria, Umaru Yar'Adua, has publicly declared his assets, in an effort to combat official corruption, his spokesman says. Correspondents say it is the first time in Nigeria's history that a sitting president has done this. Public officials have to declare their assets to authorities by law, but are not compelled to make them public. According to Mr Yar'Adua, he is worth about $5m (£2.5m). Transparency International, which monitors corruption in different countries, says Nigeria is seen as one of the most corrupt countries in the world. "President Yar'Adua intends to work with the leadership of the National Assembly to see what can be done to make assets declaration an effective weapon in the fight against corruption and abuse of office," AP news agency quotes presidential spokesman Olusegun Adeniyi as saying.

YAR'ADUA'S ASSETS
House given by brother: $940,000
Inheritance from brother: $820,000
Two farms: $196,000
Savings, salaries, campaign funds: $40,000
Furniture: $23,500
Cars: 31
No assets outside Nigeria
Source: Presidential statement

Mr. Adeniyi says much of his wealth was inherited from his late brother Gen Shehu Yar'Adua, who was second-in-command when former President Olusegun Obasanjo was military ruler from 1976 to 1979. He says he has some $40,000 from his salaries, savings and campaign donations. He is a former university chemistry teacher and state governor. Meanwhile, attempts by Mr Yar'Adua to form a government including opposition parties have received a setback.

Probe demanded

A large faction of the Action Congress (AC), led by former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, pulled out of talks with him on Thursday. The AC wants the government to investigate the workings of the state-owned electricity and petroleum companies, as well as a review of how state assets were privatised. Mr Yar'Adua is reported to have been willing to consider this, but only if the AC withdrew all its legal challenges to his election in April, something they refused to do. International observers described the polls as "not credible". Earlier, Mr Yar'Adua reached an agreement with the largest opposition party, the ANPP. It is not yet clear how many ministerial posts the ANPP has been offered and party leader Muhammadu Buhari condemned the decision to join the government. A month after taking power, the president has not yet appointed the members of his government.

simplice

Doh Gah in my opinion cannot be paralleled to Sadam(a tragedy).Neither should we call him a Bin Laden(He's still fighting between dead and life in hidding;not a free Man).Fon Ndoh in a sentence is the ultimate George Bush:despite his attrocities,Biya's regime still sends elements of the CPDM central committee to apeace him.

Che Sunday

This man is a genius. Once in a while, Osama Ben Biya sacrifices one of his maffia cohots to get the public silent, then the thieving frenzy gets underway again. Watch out Cameroon, you are in for a sweep.

Ma Mary

Some may recall that Mr Paul Biya declared his assets at the beginning of his inheritance of the presidency of Ahidjo's United Republique of Cameroun. People were impressed that he kept and produced his original paystubs.

He equally declared that forthwith there would be "Rigour and Moralisation". Does he remember at all? One wonders how his assets, truthfully today would compare with what he declared at the beginning.

espoir

declaring of assets by public officials is a good sign and a determination and a mile stone of genuinely discouraging officials from stealing and being corrupted.cameroon needs this as an active part of its constitution.as ma says, these people would need to declare there assets before and after their term of offices or if posssible on an annual base.monsieur le president might been reluactant on motioning this asset declaration to paliament.reasons being unaccountability.but he needs not worry because we dont know his salary if at all he has one.we hear he lives on state budget,so maybe he starts by telling the nation what was his salary from 82 till date.if no salary and he lives on the states budget then we got no right to judge him if he owns half of cameroons wealth.we cameroonians gave him the right to live on this budget.
talking about jailing the corrupt official,we must give credit where its due,be it under pressure or what,this is good for cameroons image and for fighting corruption.what would u have said mr.Che,if this guy was acquitted,foul play i guess,now the system is showing signs of independent effeciency and we dont want to admit that at least some thing is being done to jail corrupt officials.to my opinion we just have to watch and only criticise and out-cry if these man doesnt end up in jail and then hope that the government does more in the future to effective implement its corruption and embezzement fighting mechanism and come hard on corrupt officails,until then lets support our government on the fight against corruption.cameroons number one enemy.peace

IF SOMEONE STEALS MY MONEY,SUBSTANTIAL MONEY, I WILL TAKE HIM TO COURT (NOT WITH THE INTENTION OF GETTING HIM JAILED). I WILL TAKE HIM TO COURST SO HE AGREES TO PAY MY MONEY GRADUALLY..PUTTING HIM IN PRISON SHALL NEVER FETCH BACK MY MONEY.


I WONDER HOW SENDING ONDO NDONG TO PRISON WOULD BRING BACK THE BILLIONS HE STOLE.

THEY SHOULD INSTEAD TAKE HIM TO CENERM SQUEEZE HIS BALLS AND ...MAKE HIM TALK..MAKE HIM BRING BACK THE MONEY.


ALL THIS IS A FARCE.
