Good to read material written by someone with an amount of inside knowledge, backed by years of news coverage.

However, it is necessary to expand how we view the present predicament by giving it a much larger perspective. To do so, one must take a few steps back in time and revisit the type of "secret deals" the late John Ngu Foncha made with the late Ahmadou Ahidjo at the time of the Foumban Conference, their ramifications on national odyssey over this time period. In what language, for example were the deals made and what guarantees were put in place to forestall any breach? Should those going in for today's deals not look at their notes and learn one or two things about similar happenings in the past? Why did John Fru Ndi reduce a people's fight into a one-man show?

As for the future of the SDF, all remedial measure will lie in revisiting its Constitution.
It is manifestly clear that cumulating the functions of party chairman and main candidate to challenge the CPDM has not helped either Fru Ndi or the SDF itself. A change of strategy is called for. All the cry about Fru Ndi stepping down would have been unnecessary if the SDF Constitution had not blundered in making this cummulation of functions possible, to its own detriment! To stay relevant and still keep some of Fru Ndi's lustre, let those who matter amend the founding constitution of the SDF and watch the return of new blood into the dying machine!

Good comment here Mr. John Dinga. It's a shame that those asking Fru Ndi to leave the stage cannot offer any single option that would take the SDF forward. Does anyone think that some one else replacing Fru Ndi, given the current political playing field, would easily drive out Biya? The problem is not Fru Ndi per se; the field is not level for all the participants.
