Fru Ndi Denounces Warmongers

9 Aug 2007, 8:37 PM
The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Front, SDF party, has denounced war advocated by many as solution to the electoral malpractices over the years that have been depriving the party of its legitimacy to power in municipal, parliamentary and presidential elections. The party, according to statistics gathered from the field, lost through rigging, about 60 parliamentary seats in just ended twin elections. According the SDF statistics, it won 74 seats but was ascribed only 14 as proclaimed by the CPDM government Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation, Marafa Hamidou Yaya.

In spite of all this, Fru Ndi argued at a press briefing at his Ntarikun residence, a few days after the elections, that he would not want to see a showdown that would be very devastating to both sides of the political divide and the Cameroonian people. He told journalists that: “There is no victor nor vanquished in any political armed confrontations,” in spite the anguish. The Chairman said the SDF is fighting for “… you the youths and would not like to see you perish in an armed confrontation like in Liberia and so on.”

Militants, who uphold the use of force, if peaceful negotiations and dialogue failed to resolve the matters of the day, blamed Fru Ndi for adopting a peaceful approach. Fru Ndi again argued that it is easy to start a war but difficult to end it.

“I don’t want to increase the plight of Cameroonians plagued by bad governance,” he stated. He told the press that the Santa electoral hold–up was orchestrated by administrative authorities and elite who wanted to twist the election to favour the ruling party for selfish aims. He said it would be a political blow if “… I am defeated in my village.” He averred that the vote count from his village, according to CPDM report, was even more than the entire population of his village.

Fru Ndi condemned in very strong terms the role played by elite, front line communicators and lay preachers of the churches. He regretted that Biya will again use the smoke-screen election to rob international financial donors and use the money to keep himself and members of his oligarchy afloat but debit the economy and mar the future of the present generation and generations to come.

He deplored the “come no go” syndrome reintroduced by the Prime Minister, Chief Ephraim Inoni, during his campaign tour. He said the PM instructed Southwest administrators to frustrate Northwest SDF militants and deprive them of victory in the elections. In the same vein, Minister Etame Massoma was quoted as telling Cameroonians in Nkongsamba that the SDF was an Anglophone party that had nothing to do with francophones.

A few weeks ago, I talked of the "winter of discontent" which brought down James Callaghan's government here in Britain in 1979. It all started when refuse collectors went on strike. London was worst hit. Soldiers were brought in but they could not cope. Other unions joined in and the economy was crippled. This forced Callaghan to call an election which he duly lost!
Who said the common worker has no powers? What is happening in Buea could just be the opening we need to oust this regime from office.
