Kakistocracy: kakistocracy (plural kakistocracies)
Government under the control of a nation's worst or least-qualified citizens.  

Cameroun is a kakistocracy

J. S. Dinga

Under other skies this is the type of problem that the people's elected representatives - Municipal Administrator, Mayor, Government Delegate, Minister, Parliamentarian, Head of State - toil to resolve. In our Cameroon it seems to be that only those who wear the shoes worry about the pinching. How absurd! Even where these powerful politicians will not or cannot act, the people power is usually called into play. Where is the voice of the voiceless - the press? But in Cameroon again, this seems like a far cry. What a reversal of the natural order of things! Where did the Christian mantra of being one's brother's keeper go?

And what about the famous anti-corruption law which provides for those with ill-gotten wealth in excess of 50 million CFA francs to pay and all will be forgotten? Is Danpullo's legerdemain not worth more than this amount?

The author raises a very interesting point - the imminent celebration of the 50th anniversary of Cameroon's unification right there in Buea. Under this climate should all the citizens and their leaders and everybody not mobilize and stand like one man and torpedo this grandiose display of waste? When will the community around Tole and Buea and the South-West - and indeed the entire nation - wake up to realize that this fight is not just the fight of a handful of disaffected Tole Tea Estate employees but the totality of all those whose welfare was touched directly or indirectly by the cultivation and sale of Tole tea? Or has the fight between sons of the soil and non-sons of the soil dissipated every ounce of energy and wisdom, rendering the entire population unable to rise up to this challenge of politics-enhanced looting?

My closest friends and I baked cookies and breads and made dips and worked tirelessly on our little holiday party menu; we even had an annual ornament exchange. And aren't we cute?
