Abesong John

Cameroonians are now talking. Fighting from the bottom makes no sense. Until Yaounde starts a tough fight, there and then shall the fight be considered serious. One Ondo Ndong out of a hundred will not rescur Cameroon. Only God alone knows when Cameroon shall be saved from the fangs of gullible leaders. Colonizers were even better. After all what can Cameroon be proud of since independence apart from narrow delapidating roads, airports, and others that destroying the lives of human beings on a daily basis. It's a pity.


12 Gendarmes Fired For Corrupt Practises

Some 12 Gendarmerie officers of the Melen II Brigade in Yaounde were on June 20 fired from service for collaborating with men of the underworld and indulging in criminal and corrupt practises. The 12, headed by the Brigade Commander, Adjudant Chef Pierre Ewane Messape, were dismissed on June 12 and relieve of the duties for being unscrupulous and extortion. They were found guilty of collaborating with bandits and selling arms to them. They were also accused of not respecting the hierarchy and not working to protect citizens and their property.

The Brigade Commander was also accused of using his unit as hideout for men of the underworld and of sending out some of his boys to operate with robbers and of illegally releasing criminals in detention. Installing a new team, headed by a new Commander, Biagne Abedegue, the Secretary of State in charge of the National Gendarmerie, Jean Baptiste Bokam, called on them to shun acts of banditism and arms smulging. He said such acts only attract imprisonment and summary dismissal. He called on the new Commander and his 12 collaborators to work with the population and in the interest of the state and the people. He reminded them of the rules and regulations of the Gendarmerie.

The move to remove and fire the old team was saluted by many, especially the population of the neighbourhood as a step towards eradicating corruption in the country and especially within the armed forces. It should be recalled that in November 2006, another Gendarmerie Commander of the Effoulan II Brigade, still in Yaounde, was removed from his post for similar reasons and transferred to Ngaoundere.
