It would be nice to know that the US ambassador was being interviewed by a human being, a professional with title and associated news organization. As it stands, one senses a ghost asking the ambassador questions.

Addressing this poaching issue without dwelling on the totality of the wellbeing of those poachers themselves is a pipe dream. Yes, wildlife is a revenue generator but does the poacher see the revenue in any way having an impact on his lifestyle? Unless the answer to this basic question is in the affirmative, poachers will continue to want their own piece of the pie. Brainstorming should center on how to get poachers on board, make them have a sense of belonging and see what it is they stand to gain by letting the wildlife roam freely in nature. This is doable and ought to be part of the rescue plan, not just well armed officials who are here today but gone tomorrow, for the vicious cycle to recommence.

Adboul

JS Dinga, in case you missed it, the poachers are coming from Chad and Sudan and are part of Asian networks that are exploiting the huge Chinese thirst for Ivory. So I don't see how Cameroon is now responsible for creating a "sense of belonging" among foreigners who have literally invaded and taken over huge swathes of Cameroonian territory with using heavy artillery.

Yes, this is first and foremost a national security issue; too bad that Cameroonian authorities are using the same indifferent approach like you. One day you guys will wake up to find marauding Chadians and Sudanese on the doorsteps of Yaounde. But who care all you Cameroonians deserve each other; no sense of urgency as your once proud country goes down the lattrine...

J. S. Dinga

Sorry to have fallen short of your higher sense of judgement, Sir Abdoul. But it seems to me that even if the culprits are external invaders, nationals who are invested in their patrimony shoud be able to raise the alarm to their government for rescue. That was not the impression I got before I gave my remark which failed to meet your very high standard.
