DR TAN OF CAMEROON


THESE CONTRIBUTIONS, INDICATE CAMEROONIANS WANT TO ENGAGE IN THE POLITICAL PROCESS.
ALMOST EVERY BODY SAYS CAMERONIANS SHOULD LEARN FROM X. WHO ARE THE CAMEROONIANS?
THE POLITICAL ELITE?
CIVIL SERVANTS?
SOME PEOPLE WENT ON STRIKE, AND ARE IN PRISON. ARE THOSE THE CAMERRONIANS TO LEARN.
POLITICAL SCIENTISTS ARE STILL DEBATING THE TYPE OF DEMOCRACY THAT IS GOOD FOR AFRICA.
THERE IS THE INCUMBENCY QUESTION?
SHOULD WE HAVE A LONG ONE TERM ONLY[E,G 7YS] NON RENEWABLE, WITH POWER OF PARLIAMENT TO TERMINATE , ON WRONG DOING?
WERE IS THE PLACE OF MILLITARY?
SHOULD ALL THE CITIZENS , LEARN TO USE FIREARMS?
WESTERN DEMOCRACY ITSELF IS DIFFERENT FROM ENGLAND TO FRANCE TO AMERICA, THAT IS WHY THE POWERS THAT BE ALWAYS HAVE , A WESTERN EXAMPLE TO SHOW FOR THEIR ACTIONS.
LOOK AT SOUTHAFRICA, I DID SAY THAT AFTER MANDELA , THE ANC MAY DISINTEGRATE, AND THE WHITE MAN WILL COME BACK TO POWER.
EVEN IF THE CAMEROONIANS APPOINTED AT ELECAM DECIDE TO PUT THEIR LIVES AT RISK, ARE THE OPPOSITION PARTIES UNITED. CAN CAMERONIANS FORCE THEM TO COME UP WITH A SINGLE PARTY?
IN CAMEROON PEOPLE RETIRE INTO POLITICS. SO THEY DONOT EVEN MASTER THE POLITICAL PROCESS.
THEY ARE TIRED, SO THEY END UP TALKING AND HIDING WHEN THE HEAT IS ON.
THERE ARE A LOT OF VOICES IN CAMEROON TODAY BUT NO MESSAGE. WE MOVE FROM ONE TALKING POINT TO THE OTHER, WHILE THE POWERS THAT BE , DO WHAT THEY ALWAYS DO. LEARN FROM GHANA, YES, BUT CAMEROON IS NOT GHANA .
WE SHOULD LEARN FROM CANADA MAYBE,SINCE WE MOST FORVER BE STUDENTS. CAMEROONIANS CAN RUN INDEPENDENT ELECTIONS , ALL THINGS BEING EQUAL. LET US REMEMBER, THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE CIVIL SERVANTS WHO GOT CAUGHT UP IN THIS CAMEROON NONSENSE. THEY HAVE CHILDREN AND FAMILY TO TAKE CARE OF TOO. NO BODY KNOWS THEIR SUFFERING STORY WHEN THEY GREW UP.
MR BIYA HAS THE MILITARY, AND NO MAN WHO IS UNARMED , IS CALLED A COWARD BEFORE AN ARMED TUG. THAT IS HOW PEOPLE PUSHED BERNAZE BOTTU, FROM AMERICA TO PARKISTAN, TO GO DIE AT THE HANDS OF A DICTATOR.
I HOPE POST BIYA CAMEROON WILL NOT BE THE SAME.

DR THOMPSON AKWO NTUBA MD .Ph,D

Amen! teacher Livinus Esambe.

We really have no lessons again to learn from Ghana not because their example is not worthy, far from that.

Cameroon can do even better than Ghana, but how do you conduct anything near transparent election in a hostage like situation.
You can't resign from the government if you work with it, because the next minute they will pull out your true or fake file of corruption and send you to jail.
You can't fight against it or try to help it as an opposition because if you score a few victories, next you will be framed.

Cameroon has been taken hostage by Biya and clique. We are approaching the Mobutu like situation just before Kabila came riding.

The worst part of us having nothing to learn from Ghana is the fact that Biya is going to be a life president.
So, I would be saying we could learn something or sing how Ghana makes Africa proud if we were heading to the same direction.

Like we all probably know, Biya has done so much harm to Cameroon ranging from uncountable slayings,raping and mismanaging our coffers, wrecking our constitutions,misdirected the nation, play ethnic divides, slashed our salaries, institutionalized corruption, constantly bribing the military with special treatment salaries to keep him safe. And he never stops giving high sounding speeches, he never stops putting himself above the frame of an ordinary president who can talk or pretend to commune with people down low or those who differ with him.

The long story is just to say Biya knows fully well from the moment he leaves power, he will be a guy on the run for one reason or the other, it wouldn't matter if his village brother takes over. He has done so much harm and can't be stupid* to leave power.

The ELECAM nonsense, ten administrative regions blah blah blah, Senate story,fright* against corruption is just to fool the people the government is working to make the country better or take it forward.
The true eye actually sees a dance in a circle around Biya, not going forward.

How I wish the Ghanaian election meant a thing to Cameroon.
