Interesting statements from an SDF Stalwart:

"Why would MPs be forced to cut part of their micro project funds and give to an individual? These are state funds. These are public funds and you make such contributions to individual pockets, who accounts for that? Is that not the embezzlement of public funds?"

"We know that within the party, we are guilty of worst fraud than the CPDM."

"We are all too interested in money with very little interest in the welfare of the masses."

"What is the difference between the 25years and 17years? Are we saying that there is no room for change in the SDF?"

"If the SDF decides to go into government, and I am invited to be part of it, I will accept it if that decision is predicated on the party's sacrosanct resolve to serve the masses. Joining government should not just be a decision to meet embezzlers of state funds on the dinning table. "

"I advise him to be a servant of the people and not a servant to certain individuals."

"Considering what is going on in the party at the moment, it is time for them, if they really think well of the interest of the masses, to step aside and leave these things for us to go back to the authentic, original SDF and start from crash."

Time is the best judge. Greed, Greed, Greed and the greedy attitude of these hypocrites will be exposed with time.

I usually support the SDF but I feel that Ni Fru should come down from his high horse and be a man of the people again. Even Biya started out with good ideas for Cameroon but was corrupted by power and became a corrupt dictator.

Challenging Fru Ndi in the SDF should not be tantamount to treason and inviting Article 8.2.

The SDF has become the same thing it stood against 17 years ago. Cameroonian politicians treat their party leadership like cults, or the mafia, where the personality comes before the policies where the chairman is God, where being a founding father means you can never do wrong or where leadership is for life. I am sure a lot of people are as disillusioned with the SDF as I am for the ideals they never stood up to. I do not have a problem with a politician who stands up for his people in the face of pressure from his political party.
As far as Micro project funds are concerned, I am particularly dismayed by how MP's especially of the SDF utilize theirs. An MP is supposed to represent his people in parliament, not his party. But many a time, we hear how much of a percentage MP's are supposed to contribute to their party from their Micro Projects funds. That money is supposed to be for your people, not your party!
If I had to choose between voting for the SDF or the CPDM in the current climate, I would just void my vote. The difference between them is what Chinua Achebe refers to as " the difference between a broken calabash and rotten palm nuts".

M Nje

"The immediate lesson I learnt from it is that the party should work on that which is true and that which is good. If you work on falsehood, you suffer the consequences. The truth must always prevail."

"The leadership is making us feel that there is no difference between the SDF and CPDM."

"Definitely, the amount of fraud that I suffered is not one that can easily be waved away."

GREED, GREED, GREED, and GREED is what is keeping the SDF in La Republique`s politics. But thinks are catching up with you.
