This is laughable indeed. The Post, are you kidding me? are you guys serious? why are you running this as your front page story? you run a front page story based on oral testimonies? even in the 21st century? you run folklores and myths as front page stories? This is laughable. These are "Quartier stories" and they do not belong on covers of The Post.

There is turmoil in Chad with very serious implications in Cameroon in terms of the flood of refugees and the fact that Idris Deby angered his people in 2005 by changing the constitution in order to retain power--like what is about to happen in Cameroon but instead of providing in-depth commentary on such a hot topic, the Post is publishing a laughable and irrelevant story. Those who have stolen the country's money fly in-and-out of the country frequently so when will the witches go after them so as to safe the masses from endless misery? I know the Post has the right to publish whatever it wishes but what about integrity and credibility? Wonders shall never end.

Hahahahahhahahahaha.Dr. Neba,you are cracking me up. That was well said. I couldn't agree more.

his is outrageous and a ridicule to readers of the post. The post seems to be employing guys who know nothing about common ground reporting. Cameroonians and especially those of the diaspora expect to be informed of important evolutions in Cameroon and not be told such old fashioned stories propagated by voodoo and feymen in the guise of pastors.Please, yours is an online publication read worldwide and stop publishing nonsense that further ridicules our society. We have been ridiculed enough by the political leadership in Cameroon.

Dear all,
You are damn right! It appears to me that the post is a regional newspaper reporting on very local or tribal issues. They hardly touch on hot news and i feel they need to be current with their reports.

Such news could be interesting but as Dr. Mentioned, should not not be on the headlines. It is better to keep such stories unpublished because it sullies our country. Do we use witchcraft to kill innocent civilians. As suggested go get those burying the economy of country.

My opinion? It's all crap and those involved might not only be delivered but will have to bring their leaders into justice.

I prefer crtv online at www.crtv.cm where one can get hot daily news on issues in Africa and the all time best : luncheon date. The post suks!!!!!

Squinty

I'll definitely say there is something very wrong with anglophone journalism in cameroon. Is charlie Ndi chia still the editor and publisher of the Post? I've always known Ni Charlie to be a seasoned journalist and fire brand reporter, but to read this sad and pathetic narrative sounds like a frustration.do something before you loose your audience.

Ejang, next time you want to write a story like this put in journalistic english. and the publisher next time you want to publish a story like this put it under the human interest section of the newspaper.

This ia all about Business, 419 Dealers turn pastors are bank rolling advert cash to the Post.So what do you expect??. "CAPTION on The Front Page saying "Prayers use to produce Goods and services thus increase Productivity and reducing porverty,cuting curruption,improving Good governance and Granting Visas to Heaven.
The manager of the post will surely dismissed credibility and current events as the conner stone of the Post ethics.Money is Money, it doesn't matter if it is use to spread the wrong Ideology or to hide the Truth.
The post seems to be desperate for cash

FRITZANE KIKI

The post just want to be frank here which is good sometimes in journalistic works,but if they are acting as court judge then that will be wrong as far as the norms of jurisprudence is concern.

I think this caption just indicates how our system of values and belief is greatly impeding development:as we still recourse to unscientific explainations for solutions.

Nsahlah

Just one question.
Why does the Post choose to print such stupidity? This is a medium aimed at educating and informing Cameroonians world wide. Is this the kind of news one has to read from the home front? Ridiculous!!!

Salem witch trials
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Salem witch trials were a series of hearings before local magistrates followed by county court trials to prosecute people accused of witchcraft in Essex, Suffolk, and Middlesex Counties of colonial Massachusetts, between February 1692 and May 1693. Over 150 people were arrested and imprisoned, with even more accused who were not formally pursued by the authorities. The two courts convicted twenty-nine people of the capital felony of witchcraft. Nineteen of the accused, fourteen women and five men, were hanged. One man, refusing to enter a plea, was ordered to be crushed to death under heavy stones. At least five more of the accused died in prison.

Despite being generally known as the "Salem" witch trials, the preliminary hearings in 1692 were conducted in a variety of towns across the province: Salem Village, Ipswich, Andover, as well as Salem Town, Massachusetts. The best-known trials were conducted by the Court of Oyer and Terminer in 1692 in Salem Town. All twenty-six who went to trial before this court were convicted. The four sessions of the Superior Court of Judicature in 1693, held in Salem Town, but also in Ipswich, Boston, and Charlestown, produced only three convictions in the thirty-one witchcraft trials it conducted.


On a similar subject, Joan of Arc also suffered the same fate. In her case worse, for she was burnt at the stake for heresy!!

These young girls should count themselves lucky. I would however recommend the stakes for them and Massock

red flag

have anyone ever ask him/her self, where
these journalist gets their training?
now adays. SINCE THE COLONIALISATION AND
BASTARDIZATION OF OUR ANGLOSAXON TRADITION AND CULTURE BY THE MILITARY JUNTA OF FRENCH CAMEROUN. JOURNALISTS, DOCTORS, MARGISTRATES, PROFESSORS ARE ALL TRAINED
AT THE SUB-STANDARD, SUB FRENCH ,CAMEROUNS. ASMAC, IRIC, CUSS, ENSET. ENS, BAMBILI, ETC, THOSE SCHOOLS WERE SETUP BY THE FRENCH AS A CAMP FOR POLICTICAL INDOCTRINATION RATHER THAN A PLACE TO ACQUIRE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPAND ONE HORIZON. I AM NOT SUPRISE EVEN UB IS NOT FREE, WITH THE BLACK-FRENCH ACULTURIZATION?

Homme

I presume you expect everyone to agree with you because you signed your name and added PhD; Dr. Neba Funiba? You describe the article, "a laughable and irrelevant story" The role of a paper is to give information. Read what you are interested. Make constructive criticism. I have read alot of information from The Post. There is the existence of an active spirit world and anything can happen. The only sure security is in the One who came to destroy the works of Satan; JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF GOD. We all have to consider where we will spend eternity instead of being puffed up with arrogance because with think "we know to much"; and educated. We should not let knowledge get to our heads. Be prudent!!! God bless you all.
