Without giving undue credence to this classification, I still find it interesting and worthy of analysis. Here`s my first impression:

- Save for Ghana, the top 5 performers (A- to A+)are low-populated countries (less than 3 million), which presents a case for mitigated performance. However, with oil-rich, sparsely populated Gabon and Equatorial Guinea languishing at the bottom 3rd, this performance may as well be attributed to good governance.

- The central African (CEMAC) region is full of stragglers, with 4 of the bottom 10, from this region. Ever restless Cameroon is tagging along at number 44.

- I don`t know if Zimbabwe`s position is a reflection of international ostracism, but I was hoping it would at least make top 40. Equally surprising is Tunisia, considered an average student, shortly before toppling its government.

- Finally, of some interest and relevance to this forum, is Eritrea`s position at the bottom. For a country hailed by some, as a beacon for Southern Cameroon, it doesn`t augur well.

It is about time for a Cameroon Temperance Movement to help move the society away from alcoholism. Temperance movements are nothing new http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temperance_movement

Cameroon is not the first country to experience this degree of alcoholism, and social movements emerged to confront the problem head on. The first thing is a cluster of people to form who swear off alcohol by signing a pledge.

Egypt is undergoing revolutionary ferment just about now. People there are tired of injustice and oppression.

Mimbo-eye pupil for Cameroon, I di throway Salute.Are u guys watching TV? IT IS NOW OR NEVER. Are u guys sober enough such that we can rightfully reclaim what we've been deprived of for the past 50yrs? We must MOVE AWAY from the writig phase to the ACTION phase. Can we muster enough courage and free ourselves fom this bondage or have we given already given up and resign our fate to this bastard at Etourdi?

Dreambox

The implementation of the law of Namibia and communication of new cases of alleged harassment of the media has been ranked as some of the major setbacks Pohamba.
