...in addtion to the unecessary waist of time,i am pretty sure they also asked u give them some kickbacks.Rotten country!

marcel

dear friend getting annoyed in cameroon because of govt and his employees will only make you more annoyed. immagine that you are a cameroonian who haved lived abroad and you come back home as they say and then face such a situation. can that explain why some people go and when they come back they go back and never come back again?

Dyna Ngoy

I have a friend of mine who has been trying to set up a company since June 2009. She has not yet completed the registration process up until today, 19 October 2009 (four months after). She is being tossed from one government office to the other In Yaounde, Douala and Bamenda. On va faire comment??? Cameroon na we country.

The Entrepreneur Newsoline

You have not told your readers what was the content of your package. Was it cocaine? Was it a commodity for which you must pay customs clearance? Remember that sending a good by DHL does not exonerate you from custom clearance and fees! It is even suspect that your package came from India via Nigeria - countries that have a propensity to snuffout laws and regulations.

If it were a commodity that required customs clearance, then mindful of the timelines you present here, you got your package in pretty good time. Its lightening to read from you that the Cameroon DHL and customs, etc. telephoned you about your package. Isn't that good news? Please, be honest to yourself and country. And stop exploiting the thoughtlessness of hundreds of Cameroonians who read what you write!

Louis Egbe Mbua

Entrepreneur Online,

You are mistaken. The DHL is a reputable international service. They check their goods before they are sent. It is therefore impossible for the aggrieved gentleman to send illegal drugs through DHL.

I do not believe the gentleman is "thoughtless" as you say. On the other hand, I believe he is thoughtful since he was able to compare more than one situation.

Mr. Dipoko, comparing two bad situations does not solve a problem. To compare a computer freeze in Seattle to that of what Mr. Timah experienced in Cameroon is a non-starter. It appears some wish to wallow in mediocrity while others want excellence. Mr. Timah avers for excellence. Respect that.

Is there anything remotely illogical or out of place with a parcel taking 4 days to cover 13700km and 5 days to cover 20km?
I think we should be comtemplating on how we can improve our beloved country rather than searching the globe for what is worse.
Do we deserve the worst?
And what has that got to do with anglophones, Muna, Foncha et al ?
It appears till Muna ,Foncha and the rest get up from their graves and right thier "wrongs" anglophones are not allowed to express themselves.
If you have a job(s) to offer and a military helicopter to fly you when roads are bad that is wonderful, and hopefully should be of interest to someone .

Dr M-A Kumbongsi

Who is this tunnel vision 'visionary' of Alain Dipoko pouring out invectives of misrepresentations and untruths about what he calls anglophones? He should be properly schooled about what former British Southern Cameroons was like in several endeavors before the 'unholy marriage' in 1961 with La Republique Du Cameroon, the name the former french trust territory acquired on January 1, 1960 when it attained 'independence' from France. There is a lot for him to learn and be properly enlightened first about the true history of what he refers to as francophones, secondly the anglophones and thirdly the evolution(call illegal transformation)to the current state of affairs prevalent in the place.

Enow

Mr Alain Dipoko, by the way i really lack words to describe you with your comments regarding our fellow brother's parcel from India. If you had a presentation to talk on this topic and a specific time, you would have gone out of topic and your time limit. Even if computers get frozen in Seattle, they always make sure that their customers are satisfied as fast as possible. And that will not take more than a day to get the job done. Our brother is talking about his parcel, you are talking about fermanism, corruption, the construction of a prison and how you even took an helicopter to travel over a bad road. The only thing i will say is that, you are nothing but a BIG COWARD and at least you are trying to show us how francophones react to situations. You are really a BIG FOOL and sometimes it will be better if you close your dirty mouth instead of writing rubbish. ASSHOLE

TANGWA LIVINUS ACHA (TLA)

It is no strange thing anymore in Cameroon my friend. We have been so used to the system so much that when we see such situations, we only make this usual comment, "NA CAMEROON AGAIN?". It is rather unfortunate that our leaders still pretend not to know what is gong on in the administrative set-up of the country.I had a similar problem with documents I had to certify at the Nfou DO's office. Dear friends Its time we team up and make a change. We really need. We need to implement social Justice in our society.

The Entrepreneur,
hear you,
"You have not told your readers what was the content of your package. Was it cocaine?"

"If it were a commodity that required customs clearance, then mindful of the timelines you present here, you got your package in pretty good time".
So it was not cocaine then?
I think you owe an apology to this forum! The blogger is a reputable Cameroonian who does not need "blood money"! Will leave it here for now!

entrepreneur online has to be one of those softheaded CPDM stooges waiting for good things to come from his highness biya. I have been taking note of his insane comments.

The Entrepreneur Newsoline

Even in America there is power outage, Isn't it?

The Entrepreneur Newsoline

Some years back, Cameroonians required exit visa.
It no more applies. Even sons and daughters of naked peasants too can now fly. And when you do fly out do so in peace, just as Irish imigrants did then, and chinese do today.

Suprisingly, Cameroonian natives will not go in peace. They go, and want to wreck havoc, rather than positioning themselves in the economy and politics of their new lands, like Jewish imigrants, they look back with destructive nostalgia. Very strange indeed.....

Its basic: If you have nothing to contribute to move Cameroon forward, and all you have is destructive distraction, then rest in memoriam.

If you lack information, on how you could be an agent of positive change, then request for one, and assignments will be given to you....

If you are inside, and have no ideas, then graaaaaab and go join your countrymen partying in all the nooks and corners of the earth......

Perhaps, Chinese selling puff, Indians, Nigerians etc will build Cameroon...and you folks and like-minded bandwagon could return then, for then its costs nothing....to inherit Cameroon....Who ever told this boisterous bunch that nation building is cheap....

The women who give birth at home in America and cannot afford hospital bills, etc.... are they in Cameroon?.........Those who survive in soup kitchens in America are they in Kumbuo? The homeless in London are they in Batibo?

Some of you easily get carried away with illusions and because you lazily seek to inherit were you did not sow - the glitters of the west that others toiled for, now you run your mouths, pens and inks as if you could manage even a soup kitchen.......or your personal lives, wives....

The building of Cameroon is in progress. It will take years, but the task is on...some are etching their names on the pillars of construction. If you cannot be part of that effort, in the million and one ways where you could fit yourself, then graaaaabbbbbbb from here.....Its basic....

....Just for the sake of justifying your falsified asylums, you rain havoc and destruction..and scare away tourists that could bring income even to your abandoned villages...very strange indeed...SELF DESTRUCTION...

TABOT

WOW! WHAT A HEATED DEBATE. I ENJOY ALL WRITERS, GOOD ARGUMENTS AND COUNTER-ARGUMENTS; NOW, CAN WE GO BUILD OUR COUNTRY AND STOP POINTING FINGERS?PLEASE....

The herald

The Entrepreneur you seem to be saying something reasonable but not in its right context.The bone of contention here is that the existing structures are not maintained or well catered for. Accidents due to ailing or dilapidating structures occur on a daily basis.Take for instance,the two ghastly train accidents that occured recently.They were accidents that could well have been avoided if proper care was taken on the rails.We do not ask anybody to provide a brand new train route but to maintain the existing ones.Similarly,degraded or bad state of roads have contributed immensely to some of the worst accidents ever realised.

If you go to the Douala International Airport,you will see that it is a skeleton or the remains of what used to be there.Woe betide you if you try to move round some of our cities.Some of the ailing or dilapited structures will remind you of an inner city decay."The building of Cameroon is in progress" as you said.Let us maintain the existing structures before thinking of building castles in the future.

Good enough,Douala is beginning to regain some of its beauties or splendours due to repair works that are going on helter skelter.

That in a nutshell,is at least what the people are yearning for.

We critise to alert the leaders and to make them come out from the doldrums and effect change which at least is their duty from which they have deviated.
Thanks.

Louis Egbe Mbua

Mr. Entrepreneur Online,


You can write all you want, the fact of the matter is that the gentleman did not receive his parcel in time; and that the system is inefficient. Has he no right to be angry? Or you want to define when and where Cameroonians must be upset? This is Totalitarianism, when one man wants all to bow to his whims and caprices. Well, it will never happen.

You tend to assume, errorneaously, that living in Cameroon makes one Cameroonian more Cameroonian than the other living abroad. Wrong! Living abroad is a matter of choice which is entitled to all; and you have no way of quantifying their contribution to Cameroon. Do you have the data? Furthermore, they have every right like any one living in Cameroon to involve in debates concerning Cameroon. Do they not have relatives there? And what makes you think they do not want to return? The land of their birth is just that. It can never be withdrawn buy any form of fiat.

And please, write in a civilised manner: there are no "naked natives" in Cameroon.

The Entrepreneur Newsoline

We can never know if Mr Njei got his parcel in good time, if we do not know the content of his package...basic!

We have all received DHL packages in Cameroon in record time, so why not him?............

Herald..so what?....
There have been train derails in Europe & America, was it Camrail that manages them? Air France, United Airlines etc have plunged into oceans uncountable times, is it ....who manages them....

You seem to think a stumbling block in Cameroon is the end of the world.....We want Cameroon to be Paradise in our lifetime....It can never happen...If only you know the machinations that traspired and still transpire for Europe and America to have the resources to be where they are now....Maybe African states too should start undermining governments and states far afield to snatch their resources.....and rebuild themselves...

You cannot expect to take out more than what you have put in....what have you put in?....

Bush stole elections twice, never heard his damn media refer to him as Bush Regime, etc...But here we are Africans using the most derogatory words to describe ourselves.....and our land....

The herald

It is true that we have disasters everywhere but most of our disasters are those that could have been avoided,if things were done the way they are suppose be done.So, the difference is that our disasters occur through negligence.you got the point Entrepreneur Online?

KT man

Mr Alain Dipoko should be told the hard truth about corruption in cameroon. It is a francophone thing not anglophone. Direct Mr Dipoko to the city hall in Paris under Chirac and his cronies-alias Alain Jupe. Does Mr Dipoko know what transpired in the city hall in Paris under the leadership of these gentlemen. Are these guys anglos or francophones. Ok, I know you will assert that they are in France and not cameroon. But Who is indirectly ruling cameroon and all other francophone countries. The sourbone in paris where every thing is learned is also in in yaounde. In yaounde it is called ENAM. Origin of all frudulent mischiefs in cameroon and beyond. The last time I checked, there was no branch of ENAM west of the mungo. How about this for the origin of corruption in cameroon.
Bonjour monsieur le professeur. Hey, if you're really a professor, why are you in an anglophone country. Something must be really spukky with the francophone system and thats why they are all streaming to the US and Britain. Oh cameroon thou cradle of ENAM. Makes sense to ya buddy.

Gan Charles

Mr. Alan Dipoko: If Anglos are so corrupt and you blame Cameroons problem on them why no let them go? Anglos now know the pact with Francophones is not working. We want to govern ourselves. LET US GO!

Subject: [wimbum] Embezzlement at Cameroon Embassy in USA



September 12, 2009


Mr. François Ngoubene
Percepteur
9001 Gettysburg Lane
College Park , MD 20740


Dear Mr. Ngoubene,

It has been brought to our attention that you and your family have been involved with squandering an exorbitant amount of money and resources from the Cameroon government and its taxpayers. Over the years since you were assigned to the Cameroon Embassy in Washington , DC , your embezzlement of public funds has been enormous. This was made possible by the huge payments for unrelated official expenses like the following:

a) Life and medical insurance for your family and your girl friend, Ms. Angeli Abitangbina from WAMSI Life and Health in the monthly amount of $8,402.08.
b) Monthly mortgage payments for your home, $4,061.73 and that of your concubine $761.59 both withdrawn from the Embassy of Cameroon’s account with Sun Trust Bank.
c) Tuition and other ineligible expenses for your children who attended Georgetown University .
d) Money laundering for Cameroonian officials and others, a very serious “criminal offense”.
e) Purchasing and building of homes in the United States and Cameroon for you and your above named concubine.

Your withdrawal of money from the Embassy’s accounts for your PERSONAL use and that of your family, concubine and friends in just 2007 alone, amounted to over US$1 million dollars. We have verifications for documents from Citibank and Eagle Bank to substantiate and defend our accusations.

Could you explain why the bank account of the Cameroon Embassy has your home address and not that of the Embassy on 2349 Massachusetts Avenue? In our research, there is evidence to prove that no other diplomatic representation in Washington, DC , except Cameroon , has an employee using his home address for official and business accounts. Is this why the Cameroon Embassy’s accounts with local banks were closed for illegal activities? Can you also justify having seven (7) cars registered in your name and those of your family members with the US State Department with diplomatic licenses.

You have been engaged in these dishonorable practices since you transferred from Belgium to the United States with impunity claiming that you are “untouchable” because of your connections with some government officials in Cameroon . Please note that these illegal activities have not gone unnoticed. They have indeed been documented and reported to both the governments of the United States and Cameroon .

Below is an example of some of your monthly expenditures out of the Embassy of Cameroon’s account:

1) Check # 5178 to your wife, Therese Ngoubene US$ 5,000.00
2) Check # 5000 to your daughter, Caroline US$ 5,000.00
3) Check # 5176 to your son, Dany US$ 3,738.83
4) Checks # 5179, 5168 & 4126 to your driver, Assoua Jean
($5,000 each) US$15,000.00
5) Checks # 5170 & 5173 to your friend, Metuk Charles US$10,000.00
6) Check # 5170 to your Adm. Asst., Mbassa Patience US$ 5,000.00

As for your concubine, Ms. Abitangbina Angeli, you can recall that in 2007, she received among other checks, the amount of US$40,000 for home leave to Cameroon which was deemed unacceptable by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. The following monthly checks, #5188: US$3,194.44; # 5087: US$3,028.74 & #5207: US$4,352.00 were also issued to her.

Please be informed that these illegal activities of yours have been brought to the attention of the Cameroon government and its citizens (taxpayers), and the US government for prosecution. We can no longer be silent especially about the most serious crime of “money laundering” in the United States and other developed countries that are providing donor funds to countries in Africa that people like you and others are misusing to enrich yourselves.

Sincerely,

Concerned Citizens of the Republic of Cameroon

I believe that by DHL calling to inform u abt ur parcel was a good sign. I also think that the content of ur parcel should not have been a source of worry, considering that it succesfully passed the customs checks of several countries without incident before arriving cameroon. However sir,la republique du cameroun can be a very disorganized and unreliable place to be honest with u. This is why Southern Cameroons must break off if they should have a future, otherwise they will continue to row backward in time, in the same boat with la republique.
