This sounds to me like someone is thinking ahead and in his own way trying to help promote democracy. Fur Ndi has clearly outlived his usefulness and all that is left of his actions is to get kickbacks from the dangerous regime in Cameroon.

All the opposition figure-heads seem to think that if you are a founder of a party, you have to rule it until you die.

It is shame that it is taken this long for people like Fru Ndi to be exposed. I have always suspected his aims ever since the SDF was launched, because of the violent demonstrations they carried out in which lives and property were loss.

People like the opposition figures in Cameroon are just like revolutionalist with confused ideas.

Nditam

Same old problem: always pointing fingers and making no reasonable recommendations.When Fru Ndi resigns(if at all he does), what next?That is the question everyone is shying away from.If its about pointing fingers and raising accusations I bet more serious accusations can be levelled against Fru Ndi, but the solution to Cameroon's problem lies not in the blames.This blame culture is what has taken us from bad to worse!!!!!!!

priso enoka

Your thinking explains why we have ditactors in Africa because we always seem to think no other person can run the country the way the current president is doing.

If Fru Nid were to resign today, you will see more vibrant people coming forth to run the party. What they are afraid of is Fru Ndi, because if they dare raise their heads, they will be kicked out of the party. You can cite the exmaples yourself.

You can't judge people when they have not been given the chance.

Looktwice

My father told me many years ago that Fru Ndi was no good. I did not accept but now I realise. My dear father, I can't stop wondering where he gets his wisdom from. The man has foresight.
Fru Ndi please hand over to a young vibrant person for the good of all.

Nditam

You are right Mr.Priso, but my point is there are more questions and accusations then there ever are going to be solutions, that we all know.If everyone were to write a letter pointing out the errors of this or that public official or politician, I bet a day, week, month or even a year wouldn't be enough to go through them all.But if everyone were to propose just one solution to the problem, more sense can be made out of that than it would from accusations.Does the writer of that letter want to take over from Fru Ndi?If he/she wants, good and fine.We are ready to give him/her our support so long as he/she can signal a major policy break from Fru Ndi's, which is what we want to know.

Fon.

"To the organisation, Fru Ndi ate his cake in 1992 when he refused to take SDF to the parliamentary elections. The letter wonders why Fru Ndi claimed that he could not go to the polls because of bad electoral laws but later led his party to the municipal elections in 1996 under the same laws."

Afanyi Ngeh has demonstrated his ignorance about politics. He does not know that in politics, we keep changing strategy.

"If Fru Ndi claims that the laws were so bad during the 1992 parliamentary elections, questions the letter, how did the NUDP win 68 seats, UPC 18 and MDR six? "

Only a naive person like Afanyi will think that the conduct of that year's election would have been the same if the SDF participated. If the SDF is to be blame for the boycott, lets ask ourselves why the Fru Ndi was not declared winner in the presidential Elections that follow.
"We believe that ELECAM, in spite of all irregularities, is a significant advance"
If Afanyi considers Elecam as a significant advance, one may also be tempted to think that he is in a secret deal with the CPDM.
I don’t know why Cameroonians think that only the SDF stand the chance to bring the badly needed change in our country. some people left the SDF claiming that their brilliant ideas were being suppressed by Fru Ndi; what have these persons achieved thereafter?
Nditam, I am with you on how we should approach the problem.
The political problem of our country is an obvious one. We don´t need lenses to look at it, but those who look at is superficially will never know the way to approach it. I have said it many times; that we should not under estimate what it takes to remove a dictator from power.
I have my own differences with the SDF hierarchy, but I put the responsibility squarely on Cameroonians.
Let’s look at where we are now. Can someone tell me if it is possible that Mr. Paul Biya, will manipulate the constitution to prolong his stay in power, then, at the same time, move forward to organise elections that will possibly not declare him winner? Only a very dull man will do such a thing, considering the shame that comes with it. If he has good faith, he would not have changed the constitution in the first place. The appointment of Elecam members came just to confirm this; again Cameroonians would have resisted, but they again failed
If Cameroonians wanted changed, they would have resisted the change of the constitution. We all know the efforts of the SDF at the time, that is, they tried to stop the dictator’s diabolic act. The only way the SDF would have succeeded is, if Cameroonians were ready to sacrifice. But we all know how Cameroonians have become docile. If Cameroonians are not ready to stake what it takes to remove a dictator from power, they should stop blaming individuals. No dictator has ever been removed from power through the use of the ballot box. Anybody who thought that after manipulating the constitution, Biya will organise elections that can make him hand over power is myopic.
There is no other miracle, apart of the fact that Cameroonians should stand up in unison and say enough is a enough.
If you send, the world's best politician to Cameroon now, and given the political terrain, if Cameroonians depend only on the ballot box, Paul Biya will still remain in power.
The major problem that the SDF has known is not leadership, that could be one, but it is not a major one. The major problem is how to rally Cameroonians to resist the dictator. Nobody should tell me that, Cameroonians can’t be rallied because they don’t still believed in Fru Ndi; because if that is the case, they can join another political force to see Biya out. Cameroonians just seem to be tired, probably because they still have enough to eat and drink, hence are not ready to pay the price that it takes to remove a dictator from power.

tita

my comment is mr fru ndi have tried to the democratic process in cameroon since 1990,we agree to the fact,but looking the other way fru ndi should resign as a patrotic cameroonian give way to young cameroon to express thier talent,through this he will be showing an example to other liders to follow.
take example of martin luther king he started the fight for freedom in america but obama is the one that have completed it,also look at moses in the bible he took the isrealis from egypt but didnot enter the promised land.
thanks

DR TAN OF CAMEROON

GENERATIONAL LEADERSHIP FAILURE IN CAMEROON
THE POST EDITORS SELECT THEIR ARTICLES ACCORDING TO SEASONS. THIS SAME REQUEST IS GETTING TOO MUCH. IT SHOULD STOP, THOUGH IT HAS AS MOTIVE TO KEEP SDF MEMBERS ALIFE.
PARTISAN AND OR TRIBAL POLITICS HAS CAUSED THE POLITICAL STALEMATE IN CAMEROON TODAY. IN THE NINETIES, SOME PEOPLE SAID CAMEROON,S POLITICAL PARTIES WERE FORMED AND HAD FOLLOWERSHIP ON REGIONAL[TRIBAL LINES]. SOME OF US FELT THEM FOOLISH.
WHEN EVER THIS QUESTION COMES UP, CERTAIN PEOPLE SAY , WE ARE BLAMING, THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ARE PROFESSORS , WHEN IT COMES TO BLAMING OTHER FAILED LEADERS.
IT,S THE SDF,S RIHGT TO HAVE CHAIRMAN FRU NDI FOR LIFE, IF THEY SO WANT. LET THOSE IN THE SDF ALSO STOP THIS POINT OF SAYING PEOPLE SHOULD GO FORM THEIR OWN PARTY IF THEY ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH FRU NDI. WHEN YOU CAN GIVE BACK ALL THE TAX PAYERS BILLIONS THE SDF HAVE USED IN THE NAME OF PARTY POLITICS, THEN YOUR STATEMENTS CAN BE REVIEWED. FRU NDI DOES NOT HAVE ANY PARTY, HE BELONGS TO A PARTY, SO TOO MR BIYA, AND NDAM NJOYA AND BELLOW.
WHY DID THIS N.G.O ALSO NOT TELL THE OTHER NATURAL LEADERS TO RESIGN, ARE THEY TOO NOT AS OLD AS FRU NDI. ALL THIS SENSATIONAL RUBBISH.
LET PEOPLE STOP SPEAKING IN DEROGATORY TERMS ABOUT CAMEROONIANS. DID YOU HAVE ANY OF YOUR RELATIVE IMPRISONED IN THE LAST CIVIL UNREST. DID YOU AND YOUR RELATIVES LOSS A FATHER OR CHILD OR BROTHER OR SISTER. WHEN WE WANT TO DEFEND STUPIDITY , WE CALL CAMERRONIANS, WHO ARE CAMEROONIANS? SHOULD ALL CAMEROONIANS BE KILLED BECAUSE OF CERTAIN IDIOTS.[CAUSEFUSION].
THE POST KNOWS WHAT IT IS DOING. WHY DON,T WE HAVE THE TYPE OF CRITICAL REPORTS WE HAD , WHEN THE STRIKE WAS ON? WE ARE ALL COWARDS HIDING BEHIND CAMEROONIANS.

DR [REV] THOMPSON AKWO NTUBA MDPh.D

Enanga Bisou

Good news there. I think it is time for this confusive party putting Cameroonians at loggerheads to be dissolved. The SDF has been condemned to be more or less a district party because it doesn't represent the opinions of Cameroonians anymore but those of FRU NDI and his party. Thank God that is is happening.

Ndi. O

Mr Afanyi Ngeh,
Am sure you and your organization also sent one letter to Biya in the line. Fon had raised some questions above for you with respect to "change in constitution first, and then ELECAM second." If you cannot see anything wrong with that, then you had rather joined Fru to resign just like you want him to.
Tita,
Who are the youths that you hope they take over and where are they? Are you one of them? If so, then you can come in through the main door and you will gain our support.
Cameroon is that country that keep looking at previous wounds. 1992 event is an old chestnut. The question then comes in " what have we learned and what is the way forward? When we fall, we do stand up. I think we must begin by realizing that everything is possible. Let us stop pointing fingers and do well to create awareness in our people who are suffering from an overdose ignorance when it comes to political issues. When acting as an Election observer in 2003, i realize an ignorance of the first order in places like Nwa Sub Div where a whole community had been made by their "belly politicians' to understand that the regime in power was the one approved by God and that those that opposed it, should not be given any chance to live in that community. There is ignorance, hatred, selfishness, etc among Cameroonians. We keep looking at doors closed long ago and refuse to see those that have been opened. We must therefore take a look into these issues if we must begin somewhere. You can also see those we look up to as intellectuals still telling funny stories to our people for their egoistic benefits. How can a young man in Berabe or Leke get their wisdom? We are therefore left with two options; to either wake up or to keep dreaming and meeting on post online year after year with the same old stories.

"We believe that ELECAM, in spite of all irregularities, is a significant advance. Urging for a boycott to the best of our knowledge reinforces the speculation that your calls to boycott since 1992 are the outcome of a secret deal with the ruling party"
This is the sentence that summarizes their aspirations.For those who choose to have short memories of what is happening in our political landscape,those pulling the strings in the background are the same guys who supported Ben Muna to organise an illegal convention in Yaounde.Amongst them is Hon.Nintcheu's younger brother.We don`t need rose coloured glasses to see the writing on the wall.Hear them:"noting that Hon. Nintcheu, the Wouri MP, was the only one who led demonstrations against what they call a constitutional coup".Just imagine how selfish this Afanyi Ngeh of a man can be.How would someone who says Elecam is the best option simultaneously praise an SDF MP who will never accept such a body?You will know them by their deeds!When Biya has successfully manipulated Elecam,witch hunters have been asked to come out and distort public attention now.In life one must have a scale of preference.That of the Cameroonian people now is how to deal with Elecam,and not who is the leader of SDF.The leader of the SDF was democratically chosen,and no amount of name calling is going to change that fact.The only person that can outplay Fru Ndi now is the one who can force Biya to remake Elecam,not one who tells us that Elecam is a SIGNIFICANT advance.

Watesih

"Urging for a boycott to the best of our knowledge reinforces the speculation that your calls to boycott since 1992 are the outcome of a secret deal with the ruling party"
Somebody who sees Elecam as a significant advance doesn't want elections to be boycotted in order to give a semblance of legitimacy to their planned rigging.They think they can scare Cameroonians into elections by talking about previous boycotts.During boycotts,they went on to win,without boycotts,they still did everything to win.Why are they afraid of boycotts now?

Delors

As someone puts it, Afanyi nget should set an example by resigning from the dead organization he is heading. What has been the impact of you shit organization on the gross human rights abuses in Cameroon.This your fake shit called FHRD was created to get money from people and now that you have gotten some from the government you talk about Fru Ndi. Have you guys forgotten that Cameroon has more than 300 political parties, why don't you talk of the other parties. Cameroonians are jobless, no good hospitals, school without teachers, corruption, tribalism, nepotism, marginalisation of the anglophones, no roads,high prices for food, constant power failure in cameroon, hiv etc etc., are these problems caused by Fru Ndi. Your pens asr so sharp when it comes to writing against Fru Ndi or other anglophones. This fool called Ngeh has as the headquarters of his fake organization Yaounde but he does not see problems in Yaounde, What did you do when Cameroonians were killed when they protested against high prices.

If you want to head the Sdf, we will support you but to head the party and bring the change all cameroonians want but just writing because you have been paid to do so, it makes no sense. Unfortunately some of us want to effect change in Cameroon by writing from abroad. Fru Ndi would have been a good man to some of your parents if he became the president.Those who saw Fru as a bad person decided to sit instead of chasing him away. Could we sometimes tell our parents that they are wrong. I hear some of the former MPS have resigned, At what time????? when they were in the glass house eating money it was so sweet and now out the party is bad what an Irony. Frustrated anglophones are confused and not knowing what to do. Go and sell your brothers to Biya and his francophones and get some money.Lets come out with solutions to cameroon's problems and not spend time talking about someone who is not in power. Some of you leave your villages and spend a week before arriving Yaounde but what you see is Fru Ndi. Some of you went with MUNA BEN thinking that you will create history. Ask what Muna did in Tanzania and you will know. Was Fru Ndi there. How many billions has Fru Ndi stolen from the government and kept in France like others. Talk to Ndam Njoya, Jean Jacques, Bello, Hameni etc. they are also political leaders who want to be in power. Shame

Klemenceau

"Fru Ndi has outlived his usefulness" yet the SDF under his leadership is still the number one opposition party in Cameroon? How strange this can be.
Noise makers and people who only see but money in politics will continue to jump from one party to another as some former SDF just did.
This human right guy has left uncounted human rights abuse in Cameroon to make a name about Fru Ndi. While human rights activists around the world go to the streets to protest human rights abuses, he (Afanyi) puts his little tale between his legs only to write on news paper columns asking Fru Ndi to resign.
Biya's changing of the constitution among many others was a human righst abuse. How many protest marches did this Afanyi guy organise? Or Afanyi didn't see when innocent Cameroonians were killed by Biya's forces of lawlessness during the recent protest due to high prices, unemployment and etc?
Why can those who think Fru Ndi has outlived his usefulness not form their own political party or join the SDF and genuinely challenge Fru Ndi in an election? Better still you can join the likes of Ben Muna in the AFP, apply your youthful ideas and chase Biya out of power.
All those who keep on having sleepless nights because of Fru Ndi and the SDF are just gold diggers. They are those who will not think twice before joining the Biya gov't and the CPDM if they had the opportunity.
The SDF under Fru Ndi's leadership is a force to reckon with in Cameroon politics and if Cameroonians were not so selfish and money-minded, they would have joint hands with Fru Ndi and the SDF to kick Biya and his gang member out of power before now.
Shalom
Klemenceau

People,

Before we proceed to take apart this moribund, archaic, idiotic and loopsided way which symbolizes Cameroonians and their way of tackling simple problems, we should ask some questions.

1. Are there any passages in the Cameroonian constitution which says that the liberation or future liberation of Cameroonians from the hands of the CPDM or mr. the devil von Mvog-Meka must be initiated and solved by NJFN...??

2. Are there any laws or a single law within Cameroonian laws which states clearly and equivocally that the sole responsibility of changing the Cameroonian political, economic & social landscape must be carried out by NJFN....??

3. Did God decree that we must wallow in our own filth, smear ourselves dirty with our slothfulness, apathy, ignorance and deceit and hold NJFN responsible for the predicaments and political impasse which Cameroonians have been facing for the last 2 & half decades today...??

4. The man and entourage, the people solely responsible for destroying Cameroon and Cameroonians hold their sessions at Etoudi, what is it that is stopping all the critics from not storming Etoudi and liberating their country...??


Who are the actual architects of the tragic demise of Cameroon...??

Is anyone actually barring youths or other eager Cameroonians from not forming their own political parties and taking up the challenge of dislodging mr. the devil von Mvog-Meka...??

Or is it that some Cameroonians are only good at profiting from the sweat and hardwork of others..?? to profit without any effort from the ground work that NJFN has laid.....??

Question: What is the business of a human rights defense group in the internal affairs of a political party? Well, I hear some former MPs are resigning from the SDF. Hmm. How I wish they had resigned when they were still MPs. I remember 8.2 being applied during their tenure in parliament. We heard nothing then. Now that they are in the cold, they cry foul. If I were them, I would account for what I did for my people when I had the chance to represent them instead of weeping over 8.2. Self-weeding is going on in the SDF. At the end of the day, the true militants shall stay. Fru Ndi is not the problem. The people who go out and vote for the CPDM are the problem. The sophisticated rigging machinery, fraud and corruption put in place by the government party is the problem. I read someone complaining of the 1992 legislative elections boycott. Ok. The opposition was in the majority in parliament. What did they do? They blew it big time. I believe there is a Fru Ndi derangement syndrome getting hold of these losers who at each turn would love to blame Fru Ndi for the failure of the SDF or the opposition to win a majority in elections. Go figure it out.

massamoyo

These idiots would have been fair in their letters by writiing to the various people according to this order
1st-To Mr Paul Biya who has stayed for 27years in power to resign
2nd-To Paul Biya who has been the leader of Chop People Dem Money party for 24years
3rd-To Fru Ndi as above
4th-To Bello Bouba MyGari who has been the leader of his NUDP party for 18years
5th-To Adamou Dam Njoya who has been the leader of his party for 17years
6th-To Koduck who has been the leader of his party UDC for 20 years.
7th-To himself who has headed that so-called human lefts organisation for 11years

Forumnites,

I have been strategically out for a while doing some work. Just wish to let u know whats truly going on masterminded by La Republiques diplomatic missions abroad. Mr Biya and his gang are all focused on an expensive PR campaign to suppress their negative image. They have spent billions bribing people all over the world. When u hear commonwealth and the EU shying over the appointment of a bipartisan leadership for an electoral commision (ELECAM) that is supposed to be independent, u know there is something going wrong. In some countries where they already have CPDM wings including USA, Britain, Germany, etc, they have created new organisations masquerading as NGO's that goes around preaching their rhetoric. Recently through their embassy in London, they invited and bribed some of our friends living in Sweden to create the CPDM party for them. People, the fight is a very difficult one than we initially thought.

We could have easily helped La Republique du Cameroun remove that dictator from power if they were ready to give us guarantees as to what the future will be for our people. Nations states must be governed along cultural lines. The Czechs and Slovaks decided to split their previous republic of Slovakia because they found out that they can effectively govern the two nations as independent states, Canada is governed as two autonomous provinces because of their dual cultural heritage of English and French. Each controls its own economy, foreign policy, immigration, Switzerland is also governed as a federation with the German, French and Italian section each having some form of autonomy, etc.
People, until we are assured as to our status as Southern Cameroonians after Biya us out, lets dont risk our lives for regime change in La Republique du Cameroun. Let the Milla Assoute's, Jean Bosco Tagne, Monga Celestin, Achille Mbembe, Tene Sop, Adamou Ndam Njoya, Jean Jacques Ekindi etc all political and opinion leaders in La Republique du Cameroun tell us what the future would be like for the people of the Southern Cameroons before we can risk our lives to engage into this very dangerous mission of removing their dictator in power.

We need to unite to remove this dictator from power, however, we can only do this if French Cameroon's political leaders guarantee us as to the future of our own country. It was not Biya who masterminded the constitutional manipulation in 1972 through the fake foumbam conference, it was not Biya that closed the Limbe deep sea port, Tiko port, Wada, Santa coffee estate, powercam, Mamfe River port, etc that completely brought our economy to our standstill. It was Ahidjo. Biya only came to complete the destruction started by the Francafrique government. Lets wait for these guarantee's.

Many thanks.

rexon

correction: czechoslovakia was created after splitting czech and slovakia.

Ted

Rexon,
Are you suggesting that the Biya regime might have engaged in bribery to clean up its image abroad or are you telling us a fact?... which in that case, i see no reason for you to hold back names of the recipients. This is your insinuation "Mr Biya and his gang are all focused on an expensive PR campaign to suppress their negative image. They have spent billions bribing people all over the world. When u hear commonwealth and the EU shying over the appointment of a bipartisan leadership for an electoral commision (ELECAM) that is supposed to be independent, u know there is something going wrong. In some countries where they already have CPDM wings including USA, Britain, Germany, etc, they have created new organisations masquerading as NGO's that goes around preaching their rhetoric. Recently through their embassy in London, they invited and bribed some of our friends living in Sweden to create the CPDM party for them." Would you please try to be specific with facts that can lead us to the recipients?

Watesih

Rexon,
These two statements contradict each other:"lets dont risk our lives for regime change in La Republique du Cameroun. Let the Milla Assoute's, Jean Bosco Tagne, Monga Celestin, Achille Mbembe, Tene Sop, Adamou Ndam Njoya, Jean Jacques Ekindi etc all political and opinion leaders in La Republique du Cameroun tell us what the future would be like for the people of the Southern Cameroons before we can risk our lives to engage into this very dangerous mission of removing their dictator in power.
"We need to unite to remove this dictator from power, however, we can only do this if French Cameroon's political leaders guarantee us as to the future of our own country"
This seems to be the worst statements I've heard you make here.Are you waiting for a road map from French political leaders in order to remove Biya from power? How feasible is that? I hope you haven't forgotten the fact that if Southern cameroons need a state of their own they don't need to waste time removing Biya from power,because as they say in French,"Un Biya peut en cacher un autre".When Biya is not there ,another one will slip into his shoes,and this is not going to weaken the French-engineered grip on power.

Ahadji

Fru Ndi May have outlived his times but what next?
Resignation is not the option. Can the said Human right organisation challenge Fri Ndi in a fair election within the SDF?
We love to read but lets read sense and not nonesense.
Someone needs to defeat Fru Ndi as chairman of the party in a fair election. Fru Ndi is head of the SDF democratically unlike the case with CPDM.
So, you need to shut up if you cannot beat Fru Ndi in an Election within the SDF.

anthony nsom

Birds of the same feather flock together. Biya has changed the constitution of the country to permit himrig another term in office. Fru ndi has changed the constitution of the SDF to permit him reign all powerful and for life. Biya is justified to continue his malpractices. Is the SDF party, the once viable and looked-up to alternative justified to do the same things the CPDM is doing? Can anybody win Fru Ndi or his candidates in any election in the SDF today?

Abdou

Anthony Nsom,
You know one thing with you people? Lies. Learn to speak the truth. Fru Ndi is not the writer of the constitution of the SDF, so grow up if you really want to contribute to the national discussion.
Thanks

felix

Are you internet fighters too afraid to call for arms???.
After 25 years or so, is there no lesson we have learn??.
Before you contribute in this forum you must first of all consider yourself(including me) a coward. we have been dying for more than 25years and we are still afraid to die???.
Our Big brother Nigeria and Ghana times and again has shown us how to terminate a tiger regime, but yet and yet and yet.......... We are just as happy to show our degree of fear and cowardice, when one of us(FHRD)is pointing at the ruins of a Brave man(FRU NDI).
Perhaps we should keep on dying, while the Lion man continues to rape, loot and plunder.

Bob Bristol

The chances of ousting Biya from power through an election is as slim as that of defeating Fru Ndi as leader of the SDF. This equally applies to leaders of the other parties. Democracy has been crucified in Cameroon. However, mobilisation remains the only option. Some guerilla attacks may be of help. I'm sure Cameroonians will not hesitate to provide the funds for this.

ftroit

We lead by example. I previously noted on this blog (at the time when the SDF party ran wild with it infamous ejection article), that if Fru Ndi won't allow for alternation of power in his party, there is no evidence to show that he won't do the same if he ever acceded to the helm of the nation. The problem is that many Cameroonian politicians, albeit African politicians still cling to this now obselete "I am the chief" form of leadership. I believe that the influence of chiefs should substantially be reduced. Heck, or take the radical move to abolish them all together. We could learn a few things from some other African nations where the chiefs don't wield as much influence (see: Kenya). The notion of House of Chiefs to me, i think is also obselete. Well, that's another story and will reserve my comments on this for a proper forum.

Until this "chief" mentality is rooted out of our political system, we'd continue to see the likes of Fru Ndi and Biya clinging to power forever.

Jake

I taught I wasw the only one seeing this. fru ndi has no plan, no vision as an opposition party, that is why he has to step down and let some dynamic leader to continue the fight with CPDM following elections within the party. He is short of ideas, I do not trust him anymore. The only thing he knows is let people match on the street, lets boycott. This has happen over and over and nothing has change. So we need a new leader with a new vision and new strategy. Fru ndi has no strategy going foward. CPDM is comfortable to rig elections over and over because of no repercautions, they are not scared of anyone, now they rig elections at 100%.
FRU NDI IS DONE, LETS GET A NEW LEADER FOR HE IS VERY CORRUPT NOW.

Klemenceau

ftroit

You have never said anything good about Fru Ndi and the SDF. You were among those who stood behind late Ngwasiri and co here when they were causeing confusion in the SDF.
I don't believe Fru Ndi is the only opposition leader to have stayed long as the leader of a party. Think of other cases like the ANC and Mandela and even other opposition parties in Cameroon. Why only Fru Ndi?
You guys will never succeed from your bias against Fru Ndi and the SDF. You are doing this to Biya and his junta's advantage.
You guys should join Muna and his AFP or whatsoever and allow the SDF alone. The SDF is the peoples party not for adventurers.

There's still much time between now and the next SDF congress where the popular candidates with brighter ideas can challenge Fru Ndi in an election.
Until they do that, Fru Ndi will continue to lead the SDF. By the way, there's a body of advisers and other execs who draw up party strategy.
I hope we don't just get fed up with Biya and his gendarmes then we start to scream Fru Ndi.
