Dr. Vacunta, unfortunately you are right. I have looked through every item on this list and, believe me, there is none I can eliminate. I often wonder how many of our fellow countrymen or women at home or abroad ever ask themselves why the date for a major election, such as the presidential is such a closely guarded secret, kept inside President Paul Biya's wallet like his treasure. And people talk of a level playing field? Who else can win on such a field? Who?


A short list of the effects of causes that need to be known, understood and analyzed. It's a long and winding road even to the default start position. Given that true change only comes through humans, it is going to require the awakening of the majority of humans in this context, to begin to move the current situation even by inches. Keep framing the pictures.

But Peter, what about Cameroonians themselves? Don't we deserve our lot? A bag of cocoa mostly becomes filthy, if and only if the cocoa pods that same bag is enveloping are filthy as well. Don't you think so?


So true Mallam Shehu,
there is a tendency to spare the general public from admonishment, either out of political correctness or in a bid to stay popular within the readership.

Some of the issues plagueing Cameroon are: lack of a professional blue colar work force; very low literacy treshold; cultures at odds with our developmental aspirations; high solidarity burden; lack of entrepreneurship; poor educational orientation; absentee parents... These issues indirectly hamper our competitiveness in later life and need to be addressed for a holistic solution to problems.

Mallam Shehu

Yeah limbekid, the alpha wolf leads the horde because it has proven its vigour and with the collective acknowledgement of that horde, it then leads. Meaning, no alpha wolf leads without its horde's endorsement. I don't think wolves ever went to school to understand that inborn instinct of theirs.
The day we shall acknowledge that we're all accomplices to our collective fiasco, then and only then shall we brood ourselves out of our various capsules.
