I dig Khaddafi's African king attire

He is the only North African leader who self identifies first and foremost as an African.

Bob Bristol

When it comes to speeches, every continent or western nation is the friend of Africa. But we are not fools. We know our friends or partners from their policies. Any country that endorses the candidature of idiots like Biya, Bongo, etc is not our friend. But would America want a Cameroonian president who would block deals that are not beneficial to America? So Biya is still their favourite choice; just like the other idiots.

We do not need obsolete computers and preservatives as aid. If we must have assistance, then let it be in the form of diplomatic sanctions. We need just conscientious leaders to launch a speedy recovery.

The Ngwa Man

Western foreign policy is very hippocritical when it comes to 3rd world nations in particular African countries. But its not easy to be fair when you are addicted to getting raw materials and natural resources for next to nothing. They talk about good governance openly but don't encourage it openly. This helps to breed unrest in 3rd world countries and eventually resentment towards western nations and the attacks against western interest.
Leaders like our Paul Biya have stolen so much from their countries and ammassed a rediculous amount of wealth one wonders when they would have had enough money to satisfy their appetites and instead start using the money from the selling of natural resources to the development their countries.

The next president of Cameroon will hopefully be someone who will be selfless and willing to adjust the constitution on the first day to one which strips him/her self of so much power and divides it amongst the parliamentary, judiciary, and the executive branches.

The next president needs to understand that absolute power corrupts absolutely and must from the first day rid him/her self of this absolute power and spread it out for the country to be succesful and progress.

Concerned Downstation Reader

While I appreciate this reading this letter, I am concerned that you guys are often taking posts from other blogs and posting them here, without their permission.

This is not appropriate, it is not ethical, it shows disrespect to the original author, and it is also illegal based on international copyright laws. Shame!

The proper way to do it, which shows respect to authors and also provides something useful for readers: Write a summary about the original blog post (including maybe a small quote) and then provide a link to it.

Adolf A Agbormbai

You can see why Rwanda is doing well. A President who can write like this!
