When employment is based solely on bearing the right-sounding tribal name rather than education/training/qualification/merit, such things do happen.


Prof. Vakunta,

While I completely agree with the thrust of your article, I take great exception to the language that you use which is unbecoming of a professor of your standard and of the readers of this site. To describe someone as a "son of a bitch" on such a public forum shows a complete lack of self control and a judgement clouded by animal emotions. Your readers are best served when you simply state the facts or present your opinion is a simple and straightforward manner without all these invectives. Please elevate your game for the sake of your message and your stature. Thanks!

Why is it that only names like Ondoas, Etoundis, Mves, Esombas will always future in post of responsibilities? Is it that the Ngwas, Ambes, Frus, Wirnkas, Nfors have started adopted other names like ondoas just for the sake of a job?

Please don't tell me names have got a part to play on the managerial skills of individuals especially cameroonians


Shusi, you are what is wrong. You forgot to mention the Ashus, the Njies and the Muketes. Are you just as tribalistic?

Jacob Eben

I read the article with great interest. It is no surprise that we claim to be Cameroonians for the sake of finding fault with its administration.I should bring to the attention of this writer that he is no Cameroonian and I have no problem with the Cameroonian administration retrieving their Property (passport). If he thinks otherwise then I do not know his nationality (for no law abiding Cameroonian national should have two passports). I appreciate his concerns but take exception to to him throwing insults at my countrymen for retrieving their property. With such unruly behavior I should say he is just a disgruntled and confuse Human being complaining because nothing in that article state otherwise.

John Dinga

When in doubt, it is usually safer to ask questions than pontificate. Obvioulsy the laws of Cameroon cannot and should not be a selectively applied. Rather than pick quarrels with a citizen expressing frustration with the way he felt unjustifiably treated by the diplomatic representatation of his country, it seems more prudent to ask by which law such an embassy staff sought to retrieve his passport when it is known that many Cameroonians, from the Head of State, through many members of government and highly placed heavyweights down to soccer players featuring in many countries abroad are owners of dual nationality and therefore two passports.
