Dr A A Agbormbai

Where is the international community? They were supposed to pressure Biya to follow the law. They are the only body in the country that can truly make a difference in such matters. Instead, they've sat quiet and sided with Biya, to work against the best interests of the people of Cameroon.

When Niels Maquardt was US ambassador in Cameroon he was doing a remarkable job of pressuring Biya. Ever since George 'Bungling' Bush shifted out Niels Maquardt to some other African country, Biya has been left with a free hand to exercise his corrupt and dribbling mind.

The outspoken and pragmatic Maquardt was replaced by a new ambassador who is so tame that one hardly even knows his or her name. Well, Mr Bush, this is not the sort of US ambassador that can serve US interests in a problematic country like Cameroon. You have pushed electoral democracy in Cameroon miles in the wrong direction with your appointment of this ambassador!

Emmanuel  J. Ndi

Where is justice in Cameroon? Where is transparency? Where is the democracy that has been trumpheted by Biya and his repressive regime? I don't know when Biya will learn from other African leaders? Can he not see what happened in South Africa when Mbeki willingly stepped down? Can he not learn from Ghana where they have just finished with their elections? Biya has given a recipe for violence and war and it will happened.Biya thinks he is almighty. Time will come when God will pour his wrath on Biya and enough will be enough.If Cameroonians of good will can pray earnestly, God will bring Biya down as He did to Nebuchadnezzar of Iraq.

Dr Agbormbai, Politics is one of such issues that requires talented analysts. Western powers do not need to intervene for Cameroons problems to be solved. Even if we expect them to do that, they can never intervene for our own interest. As we speak, all the major countries, foreign organisations and diplomatic missions have embassies/offices in Yaounde. They have been witnessing all what has been going on like the constitutional manipulation, the theft of our resources, the illegal creation of Bowleven/Euroil and many other companies companies in the extractive industry sector to steal our natural resources, etc. If they did not report it as it is, then they know what they are doing. All those reporters with CNN, BBC, Bloomberg, Reuters, etc know what going on in Cameroon, equitorial guinea, Gabon, etc. However, they choose to report what interest them most and not us. The responsibility to bring change to Cameroon lies squarely on Cameroonians and not on the Neils Marquardt or any foreign power. Granting that Neils brought pressure to Biya, what has been the result of that pressure? What has changed and what did changed when she was there? Cameroonians are not fools, esspecially Southern Cameroonians.

Cheers.

Ma Mary

Dr Agbormbai, you are kidding right? I hope so, because such naivete has to be an act, and not a core belief.

mk the southerner

What worries me is that SDF will still play to this game knowing the results.
Southern Cameroonians please lets come together, this is not our fight.

mk the southerner

Christian Cad. Tumi

Brothers and Sisters:

Here we are again at the beginning of a New Year. This is an opportunity for us to thank the Lord for enabling us to see this first day of the New Year. Please forgive me for not starting, as I always do, by wishing you a Happy New Year. Be a bit patient so I can first of all present my New Year wishes to my Mother! I’m not talking of my mother, Mama Catherine, whom you all know is over a hundred years old already, but it’s about my Mother in Heaven, whose feast day the Church celebrates this first day of January, by giving her the most beautiful title of glory: Mother of God.

God knows that over the centuries Catholics (and Orthodox Christians as well) have added to her crown of glory the most precious jewels under the most enviable words: The Immaculate Conception, the Ever Virgin …. But, the most precious diamond on her crown, the most precious title, the one of which the others are a mere extension, is the one given at the Council of Ephesus on June 22, 431: Theotokos, that is, the Mother of God.

Yes, Happy New Year to you, Mary, Mother of God!

You became the Mother of God when your virginal body had the honour to truly give the Son of our Heavenly Father a human body, which enabled him to fully belong to the human race.

You became the Mother of God when you said “Yes” and received in you the Word of God, the Word made Flesh. Incredible though this may sound, God did indeed say “Mama” to a woman!

You became the Mother of God through your continual fidelity to your exceptional vocation, and, as Jesus will one day say: “My mother and my brother are those who listen to my word and put it in practice.” But who, better than you, did listen and put in practice these words of Christ?

You were the Mother of God when, as you discreetly “meditated all that was said in your heart,” you prepared your Son for his great mission of salvation, for his final sacrifice.

You were again the Mother of God when, under the impulse of the Holy Spirit, you were present at all the “births” marking the great history of salvation: Christmas, Calvary, and Pentecost.


It is therefore not so strange that, in this day’s Gospel, the shepherds should have noticed you first before Joseph, and even before the new born baby. And they left marveling at this new born baby, obviously, but also at the picture of a mother feeding her baby with love. Such simple maternal acts carried in them an unsuspecting grandeur since they were being made to the Son of God.

All the mothers of the world were thus promoted through you, and it is natural that they, in turn, have taken pleasure in calling their own infants as their loving “Jesus”.

But, do you think saying “Happy New Year” to Mary is something a little out of order? Mary is in eternity; she is no longer in time. She has nothing to do with the New Year, which cannot add one little wrinkle to her face.

Well, I’m not so sure. Mary is also the mother of humanity, and, by virtue of this fact, she continues to follow the story of each of her children. How can Mary be fully happy in her eternity if all her children are not united around the Father?

She is interested in the New Year, and that is why I wish that she would not be disappointed with her children, especially Christians, who together with her are responsible for bringing Christ into the lives of others.

In fact, Christians, and men and women of good will in our country, have disappointed the Virgin Mary, protector of Cameroon, throughout the past year.

Do we need to recall that ten months ago, in February 2008, our country faced one of the greatest crises of its existence; what has been termed “the Food Riots”.

These sad events, which no one would ever want to relive, brought distress into many families, whose children were killed as they took to the streets with empty hands to make themselves heard, to shout out their frustration against misery, unemployment, corruption and price hikes on our markets.

Companies and individuals lost several years of investments and sacrifices through looting. What lessons have Christians, sons and daughters of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who govern our country and assume heavy responsibilities before God and before man, drawn from these events?

It would seem that the promises made to reduce the prices of basic commodities were just wasted effort as the situation has deteriorated further, instead of improving.

Go to our local markets and to the super-markets of our big cities and you will find that the price of a kilogram of meat, fish and chicken has risen dramatically. Housewives are suffocating under the price of even a liter of oil. There, where we thought a solution had been found, the situation seems to have worsened.

The Cameroonian people seem to have been taken hostage in their own country because they can hardly breathe; they can barely obtain what they need at an affordable price. Everything is expensive. Which leads one to wonder who is making fun of who here.

I continue to wonder when Cameroonians would be able to earn a salary that can enable them to make both ends meet each month.

When are we ever going to feel secure in our towns and villages?

Corruption, which has been so openly denounced but timidly tackled, is now not only expanding but has become a veritable institution, even though laudable efforts have been made over the years to combat it.

Corruption, which earned Cameroon a “gold medal” on the list of the most corrupt countries in the world, even though we are “poor and highly indebted”, is a consequence of a greater evil, which evil, I stress over and over again, is called “impunity.”

Insofar as the laws of this country shall continue to be violated and stepped on by the same people who voted them and are charged with the responsibility of implementing them, the fight against corruption shall remain ineffective. Impunity remains a veritable cancer in Cameroon because it rewards the guilty – often the rich and influential – and penalizes the poor and the weak.

There, too, I wonder who is mocking who?

When shall we recover the billions of francs that have been embezzled, and which, we are told, the embezzlers have openly admitted embezzling?

When will the said money be restituted into the public treasury? And what guarantee is there that even when the said money finds itself back into the treasury other embezzlers of public funds will not siphon it away in turn?

Not only should such money be restituted into the public treasury, but it should be used openly for social needs that everyone can see and that are of benefit to all Cameroonians.

When will such stolen money, that has only benefited a handful of unscrupulous individuals, be used to build roads for our people?

When will we build low-cost houses with this money to benefit all those Cameroonians languishing in shacks while those pillaging the public treasury, and their accomplices within and outside the country, are building for themselves colossal and ostentatious mansions as if to make a mockery of the poor?

When will this stolen money be used to build new amphitheatres to ease the congestion in classrooms that make us ashamed of our universities where the young ones are packed like sardine to follow classes?

When will this stolen wealth be used to electrify public places in our cities and villages where bandits take advantage of darkness to steal, rape and kill with impunity?

Those are questions which each Christian, son or daughter of the Blessed Virgin Mary, cannot help asking, even if in Cameroon you are immediately branded an opponent of the ruling class by merely asking such questions?.

But who can remain indifferent to such a state of affairs, or who is not appalled by it, insofar as misery and poverty continue to progress? How can it be possible that anyone in Cameroon can be happy all alone, while all around him all he hears are cries of distress?

What we are condemning in our society is only the tip of an iceberg of spiritual poverty which has been consuming Christians and the authorities of our country. Pope Benedict XVI, who will be visiting our country over the next few months, puts it very clearly in his Message for the celebration of the Word Day of Peace: “We know that other, non-material forms of poverty exist which are not the direct and automatic consequence of material deprivation. For example, in advanced wealthy societies, there is evidence of marginalization, as well as affective, moral and spiritual poverty seen in people whose interior lives are disoriented and who experience various forms of malaise despite their economic prosperity.”

Then why are we surprised that our country is advancing on two steps? Some have it all, while others have nothing. Some have worked to get what they have, while others have acquired what they have illegally and fraudulently.

Material poverty afflicting the majority of Cameroonians is the result of this spiritual poverty, which renders the heart of the Cameroonian man and woman “complicated and sick”, as the prophet Jeremiah puts it.

I again turn to Pope Benedict XVI, who writes: “When poverty strikes a family, it is the children who are the most vulnerable victims: almost half of those living in absolute poverty today are children. To take the side of children when considering poverty means giving priority to those objectives which concern them most directly, such as caring for mothers, commitment to education, access to vaccines, medical care and drinking water, safeguarding the environment, and above all, commitment to the defence of the family and the stability of relations within it.”

Can we say that that is true of Cameroon? Is that what is happening in the city of Douala ?

How often do we hear promises such as: school is free, or will be free, and yet parents are being crushed by the weight of debts because they cannot afford to send all their children to school?

When then will this so-called free school become a reality for the ordinary Cameroonian? When will we have schools where each year the school books will not be changed in complete defiance of ethical and pedagogical concerns? Each year, parents have to buy new school books for their children. No where else in the world can such a joke be possible.

The Holy Father, whom I quoted a short while ago, says in the same message that “the gap between the rich and the poor has become more marked, even in the most economically developed nations. This is a problem which the conscience of humanity cannot ignore, since the conditions in which a great number of people are living are an insult to their innate dignity and, as a result, are a threat to the authentic and harmonious progress of the world community.”

I wish you, who do not want to disappoint your Mother in heaven, a Happy New Year.

Happy New Year to you during this year of grace. Yes, each year is a year of grace, that is, a year in which God’s grace leads us. That does not mean that we will have a year without deaths, without disease, without disruptions, without solitude, without inundations, without suffering. It is a year in which you are assured that, whatever your condition of life, Emmanuel, God with us, shall always be at your side. He will always be in the heart of the storms of your life, even if you think that he is sleeping in a cabin.

That was the secret of Saint Therese of Lisieux, whose relics – a bone from her arm – which is in the sarcophagus that is in front of you, had to endure during nine years of her monastic life at Carmel de Lisieux. She threw herself in the arms of the Lord like a small, helpless child entirely dependent on his Father. That is the small way, the secret of her spirituality: total abandonment of herself in the hands of God whatever difficulties she might face in life.

I appeal first of all to the youth to answer the call of the Church in various ways and in groups that will be organized throughout this year in preparation for our Diocesan Synod.

The youth will become adults in a world where materialism, individualism, egocentrism, shall endanger peace and democracy. One spiritual writer once said: “When the youth become cold, the rest of the world gnash their teeth.”

Our world has become an immense supermarket where one shelf is completely empty, that of values. Economic considerations hold sway over the spiritual; private interests supersede the common good. Are you then surprised that corruption should reign supreme, even in areas where the youth are the most active, such as sports?

Speaking of poverty, the Pope, whose message for this year, I invite you to meditate on, raised the disturbing problem which touches both adults and youth alike, but especially the youth at the most active part of their useful life in society; we are talking of diseases that are wiping out whole generations: “Another area of concern has been the pandemic diseases, such as malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDS. Insofar as they affect the wealth-producing sectors of the population, they are a significant factor in the overall deterioration of conditions in the country concerned. … It is especially hard to combat AIDS, a major cause of poverty, unless the moral issues connected with the spread of the virus are addressed. First and foremost, educational campaigns are needed, aimed especially at the young, to promote sexual ethic that fully corresponds to the dignity of the person.”

May the youth reject the superficial world where the talk is more of Miss Cameroon, Miss World, than of young men or women who live morally upright lives, in solidarity with those who suffer, fighting there where he or she opposes all forms of moral and material corruption.

I now wish you all, Christians of today, who live in a secularized world in which you are in the minority and are not very visible, not to become the “fake” ones of tomorrow; but to be the neon light, like those thousands of lights that brightly light up our streets during festivities.

Nditam

I will never dare tell anyone life in the Western world is all bread and butter, it remains a hell for us poor Africans, especially those of my good friends who managed to get out here, like say the UK as students.But what hurts me most is I hardly, if at all, dream of getting myself back to Cameroon because of the course the country is taking, though I'd very much love to get back and inject my entrepreneurial passion into the economy and see if I an contibute my little bit of say some jobs to my beloved country.I'm happy a good number of my brothers and sisters have pointed out here the West is after their own interests and not ours.So long as dividing us benefits them, they will forever ensure any unpopular moves by our stupid leaders go through.Brood of vipers they are!!In a country with no opposition, I don't know what Cameroon of tomorrow looks like, or what our children will grow to inherit.I still live with my belief, the same TIME which brought that devil to power will take him out.We all are not blind or foolish, Biya, go ahead, your demise aint far.

Fon.

Can someone out there help me if he or she can! What is the purpose of Pope Benedict XVI visit to the land of dictatorship/corruption?

mk the southerner

Mr Fon, Jesus came for sinners and it is only the sick that needs a Dr. The pop is not coming to a holy land. He knows he have to visit hell.

Fon.

Mk the southerner,
Thank you. But,are you sure the vist does not have an ulterior motives? Even if there isn´t any ulterior motives, are you sure the visit will not be interpreted differently to the advantage of the Devil(Biya)? Again, are you certain that the pop will not offer communion to the Devil without first asking him to repent?
I am worried!

WE THE PEOPLE OF SC

THERE IS NO POINT FUMBLING IN THE AFFAIRS OF A PERSON WHO HAS PROVEN BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBTS TO BE A TYRANT. THIS IS ANOTHER MANIPULATION TO INSTIGATE A "PROXY WAR" BETWEEN THESE PEACE LOVING PEOPLES AND TO IMPLANT DIVISION. WE CAN DISCERN IT ALREADY. ONCE MORE YOU FAILED TO DIVID THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY. THOUGH TODAY THEY ARE STATELESS, IT CAN ONLY LAST A SEASON. IT IS NOT A CRIME TO FIGHT FOR WHAT IS OURS. FREEDOM FROM COLONIALISM IS OURS! DIVISION IS THE LAST WEAPON OF THE WEAK. WE ARE COMING TO TAKE WHAT IS OURS. I IMPLORE THE PEOPLE OF THIS PEACE LOVING COUNTRY, ESPECIALLY THE YOUTHS TO OVERLOOK THESE MANIPULATIONS AIMED AT INSTILLING FEUD AMONGST US AND START WINNING OUR ANTICOLONIAL WAR
REMEBE! THAT WHICH DOES NOT KILL US CAN ONLY MAKE US STRONGER

I am not worried about those appointed to Head the ELECAM. However, those appointed to head the ELECAM should be very worried because this is a setup. Biya is setting them up and the reasoning around this is that when all hell break loose, Dr Fonkam's head (A North West elite) will be on the platter and not a person from the Beti or Bulu tribe. Those appointed at the top of the ELECAM body should be wise enough to know that Biya is using them as the sacrificial lamb. They should gracefully resign for their safety and for the safety of the Nation. However, if they fail to step aside, then they must be truly convinced within themselves that they can deliver without bias a Free and Fair election in Cameroon which will be historic. At which point, they will be hailed as the group that brought true democracy to Cameroon. Dr. Fonkam and your team, We are watching you and we are not laughing. May God bless you and your team members to make the right calls and save Cameroon.

mk the southerner

Mr Fon judgment before communion is not ours. It is for the Lord.

Howard2005

I think Biya is begging to be overthrown and has been doing this for some time. He makes one outrageous decision after another hoping that cameroonians will say enough is enough but nothing happens. He is probably thinking of his next outrageous action to taunt cameroonians with.

God help us if there is one.

Tekum Mbeng

Who then should the President have appointed?.

For the 1st time in living memory, Mr Biya has appointed an Anglophone (Dr Azu'uh Fonkam) as Chairman of something substantial! Dr. Fonkam is CPDM but possesses one of the most astute legal minds in the country.

Next, is Mr. Biya going to appoint the First Anglophone ever to lead the UN Delegation or serve as Ambassador in London?

Nkem

DR THOMPSON AKWO NTUBA

I don’t know if people took the time to read your lines. I immediately see your facts. Yes you are correct in your citation. I use to tell my folks that Biya does everything “constitutionally”. He had a plan to strip the SDF naked so that the aspiration of the Cameroonian people will be invalidated at the 2010 elections. Those are the wishes of Biya and Pa Fru is very aware there is little or nothing the SDF can do. So, it will be same; one person saying”my hands are tied” – another saying or singing our usual song “I have been cheated” and the last person saying “the Cameroonian people have decided.” You know who don’t you?


Dr A A Agbormbai

Honestly sir, I continue to say this, the international community has nothing to do with Cameroon. Cameroon is a sovereign state under the charter of the UN and there is nothing anyone can do except Cameroonians themselves. International law provides for fewer instances where another country can intervene in another mans state of affairs. Take the case of your household and a problem between you and your wife.

We have gone a long way to produce intellectual giants like yourselves… but there is something wrong about some of your peers… no matter the school they obtained their Ph.D from, they decide to be passive about many things. For instance how many of you take pride in posting as you guys are doing right now to contribute to the growth of this country? Instead Cameroon continues to produce intellectual giants who are morally dwarf and hence become themselves obstacle to the development of this country. Am I wrong to say? ... If so…

I remember your peers calling CPDM the way, the truth and the light; I remember another prominent so call elite always thanking Biya and pledging his allegiance to him, I also remember our chiefs and so call elites always sending motion of supports without roads or even community hospitals, yet when things don’t work for their own appointment or micro project allowances, they want international support. You will bear with me at this point it is insane for the international community to hear us out.

As for the US style of diplomacy, I bet you it is complex to understand as there is no honest hand given without another one waiting to receive. Do you see that giant building at Avenue Rosa Park?

mk the southerner

Have you at one point look at the Holy See on TV… you will be moved by the splendor of gold and diamonds that characterized the place. Yet there is total misery and suffering in the Africa with no one to give an ear. Don’t worry yourself thinking so much about the Pope’s role in a country like Cameroon it is even out of proportion I recommend he go to Sudan and Gaza where people are actually dying and need help.

We have been characterized by homosexuals and freemason who cares? The bible makes us to understand that down on earth it is man that rules not God. So if you labor most about what you see, man I give you 46yrs if you have not yet reached. Be at peace with yourself and your God whatever you consider him to be.

Lets keep the spirit up, be the change you want to see.

rexon

Tekum Mbeng, I do not agree with you. Why should an anglophone be appointed to head such an illegal post? I believe our best brains are supposed to be focused on the restoration of our independent statehood. Instead, Biya have been succesfully recruiting some criminals with brains from the Southern Cameroons into mediocre terrorist positions like Elecam. Dr Azu'uh Fonkam is a mess.

Fon.

Tekum Mbeng,
You missed it completely. If Achidi Achu was appointed, you will also be happy that he is an anglophone.
Do you know the kind of derogatory statements that Fokam Azu'uh made about the SDF in the past?

red flag

rexon, our people wear coat and tie but
reason like dogs, just throw them a bone
and you would bait them to steal their wives and household, they are not concern with their citizenship, with their own country to rule from,which is their natural
birth right, but asi said words wont turn a stone intto bread, not untill a wilfull effort is made to establish a military force outside this country to engage in a force take back of our country s(southern cameroons) all our crying would be in vain.

Watesih

Tekum Mbeng,
How substantial is Elecam? Is your problem astute legal minds or integrity? Your living memory must be playing games on you.Nico Halle is an astute legal mind,and also from the Northwest.How different is Elecam from Onel? If your Dr.Azu`uh Fokam was a legal luminary,he would have withdrawn his name from this buffoonery of a thing called Elecam,rather than pretending to resign from the Cpdm after having been appointed.His staged resignation from the Cpdm shows him as a legal dwarf,because it is neither going to dent his sympathy for this party nor prevent him rigging for his master.To answer your question as to who Biya would have appointed,I will call on you to read the law creating election,then you will come across the answer.

Bob Bristol

I have said this before and I'm going to say it again. People accept Biya's appointment either because they have been threatened, because they have some stain in their career,because they are very optimistic that they can effect positive change in their own little way or because they want to enjoy the benefits of the office.

The main problem is the eligibility of the person doing the appointment. I don't think Biya's records warrant him to do such appointment. If Dr Fokam has not stain his hands already, he should watch out. He would be trapped and the next thing will be Kondengui.

JEW-MAN

Blood Must Flow!
The talking is enough, I have come to realise that cameroonians only talk. They dont act. Some body is inviting you for a battle and you seem not to understand the language.
Pick up your guns please!I am ready!

Tekum Mbeng

Fon,

Are you saying the SDF did not deserve punishing words from Dr Fonkam or you wanted him to praise the SDF?

ELECAM IS A CREATION OF BIYA, THE CRIMINAL
WHO IN HIS RIGHT MIND WILL EXPECT ANY THING GOOD TO COME FROM THIS MAD DOG?

I HAVE READ VIA THE COMMENTS AND HAVE JUST THIS TO LAMBAT ON. IT IS A SHAME. CAMEROON IS IN A STATE OF ANARCHY. THIS IS AN OPEN ACT. HOW CAN YOU CREATE A LAW AND OPENLY VIOLATE THAT LAW WHILE SIDELINING 20 MILLION CAMEROONIANS. WE SAW A SIMILAR SCENARIO IN THE ARTICLE 6.2 OF THE CONSTITUTION AMMENDMENTS .THE FATE OF CAMEROON IS IN THE HANDS OF A LIVING TYRANT PAUL BATHELOMY MVONDO BIYA.LET US JUST SIT AND SEE WHAT BECOMES OF HIM IN THE NEAR FUTURE. PLEASE LETS AVOID WAR AND DIVISION AMONGST OUR FELLOW COUNTRY MEN. THE WEST HAVE A VESTED INTEREST IN ALL THE SO CALLED AFRICAN OR LOW-INCOME COUNTRIES. WE SHOULD RATHER STRIVE TO LIBERATE OUR SELVES FROM THE SHAKLES OF COLONIALISM IN THE DISGUISED FORM OF NEOCOLONIALISM. BATHELOMY MVONDO THINKS HE IS IMMORTAL. THE SHOW BEGINS WHEN HE IS NO MORE. AS OF THE MOMMENT LET US RESERVE OUR CONTRIBUTIONS AND PLUNGE THEM IN WHEN THE SHOW BEGINS. APRES LE MORT DE MVONDO BATHELEMY PAUL BIYA.LE DIABLE.
RESPECT TO ALL MY FELLOW COUNTRY MEN OF GOOD FAITH.
PEACE AND A PROSPOROUS NEW YEAR 2009.

Mr. XXX the unknown

Is there no hope for democracy?
where are we? the only thing i know about democracy in Cameroon is that democrarcy has gone crazy and it is time we do something about it.
Young people where are we???
We have no future in our own fatherland. it about time we wake up from the fields of thoughts and face reality. If we leave our country in the hands of "OLD MEN & LAW BREAKERS" It will fall apart before we know it. while their children are enjoying the fruit of our labour overseas here we are drowning in the sea of uncertainty, curruption and deprivation. let's think and act fast before a foreighner comes to tell us what to do in our own country. think fast! the time is now.

Tekum Mbeng,
Just 24 hours ago,I was asking you whether you would prefer somebody who has integrity or an astute legal mind.I was very prophetic talking about integrity,because it has now turned out that Dr.Fokam Azu`uh is another feyman Biya has dragged out of his hiding place.Infact,four young Cameroonians: Gana Franline Ndaga,Cyril Kpuye, J.C Akina, and Dominic Nkongho Ewang were stopped at the Yaounde Nsimalen Airport on December 26 2008,bound for the US.They possessed Mission orders delivered at the National Assembly.Police interrogations have proven that the young men each gave three million francs to Mr. Fokam Azu`uh who opened up the way for them to study in the US.It was further said he is at the head of a scam,that has been feeding fat on this type of business for long.The story is still unravelling.

Watesih,

You can remember i have been calling these people of the CPDM bandits and i have never believed i am misusing my words. Now, it is unfortunate that we cannot talk in private because not all information are for public consumption. Now i call on you guys to keep an eye on this company Bowleven/Euroil, delta petroleum Cameroon, etc with operations in Cameroon. They are now secretly fighting themselves all over the place. These criminals, crooks, feymen, etc go by many colours, bankers, lawyers, businessmen, politicians, clergymen, etc but we know them. Forget about anything CPDM, it is a criminal organisation.

Cheers.

They have quite recent been passing around as philantropists also.

Once a snake, always a snake! Ngia Paul has defied all Cameroonians! Let him defy death as the superman. Let the grass around him prepare to suffer when he crashes in the likes of mami doro and pa Fokam.

Watesih,
Hope shame will not stop Tekum Mbeng from reacting to this latest scandal. It must be the work of God if that story comes out true.

To repond to his childish question above: Tekum Mbeng,I was not expecting Mr. Fokam Azu`uh, a CPDM staunch member to praise the SDF. I was simply pointing out to you that it stupid to welcome him in Elecam becase he is a northwesterner. In addition, to make you also understand that if he has been castigating the SDF, it means he is politically inclined and does not deserve the possition by law.
By the way, does his ulterance that he will resign from the CPDM in order to take the new job ring a bell in your mind?
