Southern Cameroonians should be on the lookout for these kinds of shady deals. They are already selling drinking water to us.

Bob Bristol

No rationally thinking person will lobby in support of a complete baring to the sales of land to investors of any origin. What is needed is transparency with terms and conditions arrived at after consultations with the local population. What government policies have been put in place to regulate the sales of land to foreign investors?

Chief Ayuk  Arrey

Africans will Never Learnt.

Useless Gov't what else can they do? No land should be sold to the so-call foreign Investors.
Never in my life have I seen Useless, Dull and Stupid Leaders like those of Africa. I am not convince if Africans had learnt anything from Colonization.

If our lands are being sold,what then is left for the future generation? When will Africans stop making themselves a Laughing stock in the World ?
The Bakweri people of Fako Division have atleast had an experience on the naive sold of their lands, this should serve as an eye opener to all Cameroonians.

Pres.Robert Mugabe is there fighting to reclaimed Zimbabwean lands from Foreigners while some Useless African Leaders are there selling the peoples lands with impunity.
S.Cameroonians should not be deceived to sell their lands.

Woe to those people conniving with foreigners to sell the peoples lands.

On December 13th,2009 I posted a poem at this site decrying the wanton sale of land to foreigners. For those who did not read it, here it is

Ewusi Kale

Globalization by inundation-
Gravitas of the nouveau riche
Roils hope for the wretched of the earth.
Here comes the orient express-
Chugging gung-ho across Africa….
Tugging boat loads of minted Yuan;
Nothing is beyond negotiation…
Beyond the scope of coercive take over.

Spurred by a frenzied mercantilist zeal
To leap - frog her western juggernauts…
Confucian capitalism is on the loose.
Anointed with cryptic endorsements
By malevolent African Coco nut heads;
Chinese moguls blithely brandish
Licenses to operate massive cesarean operations…
Africa – spread eagle; they incise……
Scrape – abort fetal gems - commodities galore!

What’s going on? Africa, talk to me!
Who ate the fruit that bequeathed this broken Eden?
Sliced and diced by European conquistadors….
Sucked to the bone….hung out to dry
Like a dirty rag for the next marauder to wipe his feet-
Trapped though in the throes of these assaults…

Here come the orient express……….
Spreading yellow fever across the land,
Compromised systems bereft of immunity-
This brand new pathology, alas may hasten doom;
Yet there are those who taut Sino-African alignment
As the way out of our economic doldrums-
Conscious autochthons however, query the merits
Of this pseudo symbiosis…………..
An all African initiative they claim, is the rightful
Way forward…stay tuned for Afro-vision

Chinese government will arm the tiff tiff class that has ruled Africa since forever to kill the people in case of resistance. The way the Chinese government brutalizes its own people is an abject lesson. If they can treat their own that way, what makes anyone think they give a damn?

Dr A A Agbormbai

These sort of backdoor agreements are very dangerous. Behind closed doors, Paul Biya and his cronies will sell away the whole country to foreigners.

We've got to be very careful here, or we are going to end up in big trouble.

The people have every right to fight back, particularly if their livelihoods are threatened.

Any land sale must have clear benefits to Cameroonians.

Mburli

Paul Biya Kparanaka oboso.
The one and only who has cameroonians at heart

OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS

CAMEROON - ON THE ROAD TO MADAGASCAR...

Again, this is why Southern Cameroons must search for its own future. We would forever be subject to all these destructive winds blowing from Yaounde and these people of the equatorial forest. That's why I find the divisions between Southern Cameroonians so baffling. How will you not begin to console yourself of the fact that you have the citizenship of another country, when so much senselessness is happening in your country, and you have detractors that would drum the regime on, until the country gradually settles in the banana republic that's Madagascar today?

It won't be long that Madagascar would cease being a 'quartier' in Cameroun. It would be the country itself, with garbage all over the cities and the fertile lands of the countryside in the hands of foreign agricultural corporations.

Biya, thank you for giving so many Cameroonians foreign citizenship! You can do whatever you care with that animal farm until it is done.

Jesco

Mathew, this is not a site for scammers. Don't fool Cameroonians with your getting a loan blablah! A credible financial institution will never have a hotmail account. Either you are throwing your scamming net or the whole institution is not credible at all!!

People Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS

Mathew's some mean little thieving idiot somewhere. Instead of using his education to find a decent job, he will rather throw little tattered nets to catch other idiots unwary and filch from their pockets.

These are the products of Biya's regime and of devil's with bright teeth like Bababgida and Abatcha. Mathew, 419 is like a habit. Once you're into it, only DEATH will be your medicine.

And it will come. Start counting your days, worthless soul.

Va Boy

Matthew should be ignored. He is one of those who troll sites placing little ads at the expense of website owners. .

No land should be sold to foreigners as my friend said we must learn from our pass stupidity
not repeating the same mistake over and over.I still strongly opposed any sales of land to any foreigner, infact we must start to educate our people about the danger of doing this lets stand as one people and say no to this potential eveil.
