This is really disheartening. Seems our theatres could rather cause more infections - and contrary to our commentators statement -shutting it down isnt a viable solution.
If there is one thing to learn, it's that our democracy isnt working for our advantage.
Change of strategy -try communism with capitalist strains.
Otherwise, let's re-route to country medicine.

I was born in this hospital. It used to be one of the best in the north west and south west regions of cameroon. medical doctors and nurses stole everything and went and opened thier private hospitals. almost all the private clinics in Limbe have Bota Hospital beds, bed pans, chairs, oyegen apparatus and what have you. we know them and now their kids come and express shock. the medical doctor in the video is a liar because no operations take palce here anylonger. the hospital used to serve people from Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon. See what Doctors did-THIEVES

This structure was constructed by the Cameroons Development Corporation in the 1930s or 40s, since colonial days. CDC handed over the hospital along with the Tiko hospital and Ekona hospital in the 1970s to the Cameroon government and it has been downhill after that. mamiya mboa was likely born there during the CDC days when they were well managed and provided great services to the workers. Conditions have really become awful for CDC workers. CDC was run like a welfare state on behalf of workers. They had pension plan, subsidized stores, housing, health care, transportation and schools for the workers. Now it became a cash cow for Cameroon government and some big bosses in the CDC, to remain unnamed. The workers conditions became progressively worse. The CDC also had a powerful union, even during the colonial days which negotiated for workers rights and even had strikes. What is wrong with us?

This is not a common occurence in Cameroon as this eyewitness account by an American medical intern in Bamenda shows: http://meginbamenda.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/so-many-prostates/

It is always a question of interest and inclination. If we are unwilling to be responsible for our own destiny, for the basics of our existence which is simple enough, who is going to be responsible for us....?

We are a people plaque with multiple neurotic disorders, unwilling to acknowledge that we are diseased and in need of urgent & immediate solutions to our deep deep multifaceted problems, but we continue to deceive ourselves that we have no illnesses.

The question is, who should resolve these problems for us...?

The problem of self enrichment, self aggrandizement, self glorification, the pursuit of the ME, ME, ME, ME, ME, ME, ME and its never ending interests are pervasive in our society and not only limited to PAUL BIYA, almost every single Cameroonian is caught up with these essentially ego-centric activities, therefore it is killing our society at all levels of life.

PAUL BIYA & his entourage have been only the catalyst precipitating and accelerating the swift process of decay and denigration of everything.

If we are interested in transforming Cameroon, then it is a task for every single Cameroonian to be awake to what is wrong with "US".
It is that simple.

Thanks.

To Alain Dipoko: I know Victor Anoma Ngu personally. He tried to do the things you mentioned but never got authorization from the presidency. As for Musonge, even as Prime Minister he has no powers. You see in Cameroon Administrative law there's thing thing called "status du force d'Acte Administratif emanant du meme pouvoir" It's a french invention which basically means that if one authority carried out an executive act such as appointing a minister or prime minister, all the subjects of that decision are equal especially where no other legal instrument authorizes one to control the actions of the other. That is, the prime minister of Cameroon falls on the same level as the regular ministers because they were all appointed by the same authority (the president) and in the same decree. The duties of the prime minister in Cameroon per the administrative code are vague and none of those duties authorizes him to overturn decisions made by his ministers. The only thing mentioned is that the Prime Minister is Head of the Government period. Whatever that means is up for interpretation and no law or arrete clarifies what that means. That is why Akamefoumou clashed many times with Mafani Musonge. Joseph Owona also refused to follow the directives of the prime minister and Owona being an Adminstrative law professor (he taught me all these things I am telling you) refused to obey the PM's directives and cited the above explanations. Long story short, Musonge was a figure head and the French-influenced and dependent system couldn't let him do a single thing on his own. Every directive had to come from Etoudi!.

Commenter Dango Tumma explains above, the problem is not with the will of certain goodminded people, but rather the system. Commenter Dango Tumma stresses on the fact that it is the french system in our area that is the issue. You know what, prior our legal systems being combined, while we were still a federation, our court systems in the English parts of Cameroon worked very well. 9 times out of 10 civilians won cases against the government, the police and our Justices were fair minded individuals drawn from a pool of "LAWYERS". Nowadays, our English culture and system of justice has totally been eroded. Back in the day, all a family needed to do was to bring an action in negligence against that damn hospital and the government that operates it and this could be done in a local court. Deadlines were respected and if anyone didn't timely respond a default judgment was entered. But nowadays, suing the government is a pain the ass. Not only do you have to file so called 'recours gracieux prealable' at the Supreme court all the way in Yaounde, but the waiting periods that have been set for the government to respond are not even respected! To make matters worse, one of the most important legal instruments in every Common law tradition called the "Writ of Mandamus" which allows citizens to compel the government to act IMMEDIATELY has been discarded from the Cameroon legal system. Now, if the government does not act, there's nothing u can do other wait. Thank goodness they have retained the other landmark instrument of Habeas Corpus. I won't be surprised that this is tossed out soon. In fact, the government is not even respecting current Habeas Corpus applications and continues to detain citizens longer than 3 days without providing any explanation! What we want is our tradition back. And shame on every English law maker whether in the government party or opposition and to English speaking lawyers for sitting back and letting folks take away our culture, especially our legal culture. Now they all want to send their kids through the English-speaking education in Cameroon. For me, any act to remove any part of our culture would have been tantamount to ending this foresaken union, which should be ending soon anyway.

Iwill like say the person behind the name Dipoko is not a frog but one of you and not to say,the point he mentioned are of very high concern to our comunity because there has been so much a talk about the state and nothing about the private sector.So we as a people if we want to move forward,then we should start solving our own problems our selves.As mention by the repoter of the said video,shorting down the op ward is not a solution but rather a katastrophy,I would rather prefer it be a comunity afair and the comunity should look for a means to raise funds and upgrade the stand of the op ward.Belive me or not without a sound private sector,there is no administration
