I hope this project will be an asset and not the curse that successive projects in the Southern Cameroons have been over the years. As far as i know, there is something called corporate social responsibility, that prioritises local environmental concerns and promotes the welfare of the community of which the main economic activity is based. In the Southern Cameroons, La Republique Francaise Du Cameroun brought in Sonara, Plantecam, Brasseries bottling plant but directly used these companies as a tool to enhance their colonial agenda. They persistently destroyed the sorrounding environment of the Southern Cameroons and have done little or nothing to showcase their presence or to benefit the locals. In Limbe and sorrounding areas, Sonara have destroyed the waters around through indiscriminate waste disposal and others thereby hindering the economic wellbeing of the locals who are mostly fishermen and farmers. This is thesame with Plantecam that destroyed the wildlife of several areas behind the Buea Mountain before local NGO's and international environmental pressure groups forced them to close down. All these companies paid their taxes to Douala Urban council and never employed Southern Cameroonians except as housekeepers or security men and most of their employees were exhibiting apartheid styled lifestyle. Sonara for example would habitually host colonial thugs for French gerndarmes who would be brought in from time to time to terrorise the local populace. They built secluded French and American schools for their children, and lived in secluded areas where the workers had no contact with the local population. The time has passed for Southern Cameroonians to be used by these colonial agents. If this company fails to employ the locals, does not contribute to the development of local infrastructure, they should be booted out as quick as possible. Southern Cameroonians are asked to watch carefully as this same Koreans that built Sonara might still use thesame tactics to bring in this company to work for the interest of La Republique
