Looking at their thumps the SCNC slogan come in mind. Still remember when late Ma Mangkefor was teaching this slogan. S CNC!!!! The people's voice S CNC!!!! The Southern Cameroons S CNC'''' Freedom freedom freedom S CNC'''' Freedom freedom freedom Now!!! How I miss all these. They must go because I can see the God of justice coming to our aid.
These frogs really think that Southern Cameroonians are really good for nothing. look at food ball and go across
They can never arrest any SCNC activist and charge him or her. This is because these frogs have no case. The more they arrest SCNC activist the more we see how handicap they are. God bless the Southern Cameroons
What is wrong with journalism in Southern Cameroons? I cant reconcile this caption and what I have just read inside. Can some one help me out?
Danny boy if I got Jesco very well, he is not in any way in support of the situation. He is just satirizing the base of the charges levied on the gentle man in question. "He reportedly wondered aloud what President Paul Biya is always afraid of." So this statement is synonymous to a plot to assassinate the president and 4 ministers". Does the above statement have anything to do with assassinating the president and four minister really? I think if he is on his rightful mine then that was just a satire.
Can some one in here tell me how significant this day is to the youth? What did the youths do on this day? Is this not a day that they remember because they had their annexed territory? Why do they celebrate this day and not also Fist October?. Is it because First October holds the truth about this falls hood Called Cameroon?. Southern Cameroonians does this day bring any joy to you? National Assembly: Anglophones decry marginalisation in appointments Say it is unacceptable that of a total over 50 senior officials appointed by house speaker Cavaye Yeguie Djibril, only three are Anglophones. They raised questions about regional balance that is much preached by authorities By Ojong Steven Ayuk in Yaounde Anglophone workers at the National Assembly are complaining bitterly over what they perceive as discrimination in appointments of senior officials of the institution. House speaker, Cavaye Yeguie Djibril, recently appointed over 50 senior officials at the general secretariat of the National Assembly, of which only three are Anglophones. “Where is the regional balance that government keeps trumpeting as criterion for appointments in this country?” one of the disappointed Anglophone workers was overheard saying. “Is regional balance not applicable to the National Assembly and its speaker? Otherwise how could he leave out Anglophones so glaringly?” Some of the fuming workers who requested anonymity told this reporter that apart from the anger directed against Cavaye, they are also annoyed with Anglophone members of the National Assembly bureau who did not lobby for fair representation of Anglophones in the appointments. “While bureau members from other regions were busy lobbying and grabbing posts for their people, our Anglophone bureau members were day dreaming and only fighting for selfish interests,” the disgruntled workers said, questioning what role Rose Abunaw (vice speaker) Bernard Forju (secretary to assembly), Nji Fidelis (questor) and Emilia Lifaka were doing in the assembly bureau. Some of the workers said if SDF members of the bureau could have their way, they would do much better than their CPDM colleagues. However, an Anglophone CPDM bureau member, who asked not to be named, said he too was shocked by the glaring marginalisation of Anglophones in the appointments. He said he confronted the house speaker on the issue but all Cavaye Yeguie could say was that they could not find any competent and experienced Anglophone workers. “Most of the Anglophones are young workers,” he quoted Cavaye as saying. During the installation of the appointed officials on 15 January, National Assembly secretary general, Louis Claude Nyassa, said the appointments were based only on merit, hard work and experience. Rose Abunaw, on whom the Anglophones counted most, echoed the SG when this reporter approached her. “The appointments were based on the CVs of the workers; the most meritorious were appointed,” Rose Abunaw said. But the angry Anglophone workers are not buying that explanation and say they are planning to petition President Biya over the appointments. Among the over 50 appointed senior officials are five technical advisers, three chargé des missions, six directors, a chief accountant, many sub-directors, heads of division and research officers.
Polo so the way is to let some one sign some boo shit in French? While they cry The Cameroons is a bilingual country? Those francos who supported him in the Taxi where are they? are they not as guilty? Should Cameroonians if at all not have a say as to what disturbs them? Man grow up.
Be sorry for Southern Cameroonians this poor teacher just represent us
Same song every election year. We heard of this same talking with election observers NEO etc. Fru go back to the real intentions of the SDF that you no you have but aside.
It is aether you are drunk or you are still sleeping. So you are still thinking of the election that has already been won? The sooner you realize that you dont know the game you are playing the better for you. Let the Frogs do their election and pls stay clear from it. Fight for your own country.
Motabenama Will you please take your time again and re-read what Mr Thompson have written? If you do, you may be ashamed of what you have just said.
I was really being carried by you Dr, but when you stated talking about Southwest/Northwest Regional struggle. I saw some limitations in you. Solve your problems without bringing our two provinces into it.
Is just unfortunate that the child was not that of CPDM maggots. Not to talk of being a Southern Cameroonian child with few people on the top to cry for his immediate evacuation.
Clandestine immigration: Fonkam Azu’u implicated in forgery scandal! But the new ELECAM board chair refutes all. He told this reporter that his signature must have been forged. But the immigration culprits claim they paid him three million francs each. The matter is with the police. By Roland Akong Wuwih in Yaounde Samuel Fonkam Azu’u, the newly appointed board chair of ELECAM, has more than one war to fight to keep his job. Having been appointed to a position that required a politically neutral person, the CPDM Central Committee member has multiplied public statements about his intention to resign from his party which hardly fulfils the requirements of neutrality. But while the debate about the political neutrality of many other ELECAM members is in full gear, Fonkam Azu’u appears to now have to fight yet another battle, that of proving his personal integrity, which is also a requirement for his job. Fonkam Azu’u in his capacity as assistant secretary general at the National Assembly has been involved in a forgery to facilitate the clandestine immigration of four Cameroonians. The four were held at the Nsimalen airport from boarding a flight on their way to the United States. They presented mission warrants apparently signed by Fonkam Azu’u, pretending to be workers of the National Assembly travelling abroad on official duty. This reporter confronted Fonkam Azu’u with the story which was carried by Mutation newspaper yesterday. The new board chair of ELECAM vowed that he was not part of the scandal, and that if his name appeared on any such documents, it must have been a forgery. He even challenged this reporter to verify with Assembly documents if he could find any duplicate of such mission warrants bearing his signature. But the four men, Dominic Nkongho Ewang, Gana Franklin Ndaga Cyril Kpuye and JC Akina, held at the airport admitted in separate police statements that they had in fact been aided by Fonkam Azu’u who claimed three million francs from each of them. The police have since taken up the matter which is now under investigation.

Mr Fon judgment before communion is not ours. It is for the Lord.
Mr Fon, Jesus came for sinners and it is only the sick that needs a Dr. The pop is not coming to a holy land. He knows he have to visit hell.
Christian Cad. Tumi Brothers and Sisters: Here we are again at the beginning of a New Year. This is an opportunity for us to thank the Lord for enabling us to see this first day of the New Year. Please forgive me for not starting, as I always do, by wishing you a Happy New Year. Be a bit patient so I can first of all present my New Year wishes to my Mother! I’m not talking of my mother, Mama Catherine, whom you all know is over a hundred years old already, but it’s about my Mother in Heaven, whose feast day the Church celebrates this first day of January, by giving her the most beautiful title of glory: Mother of God. God knows that over the centuries Catholics (and Orthodox Christians as well) have added to her crown of glory the most precious jewels under the most enviable words: The Immaculate Conception, the Ever Virgin …. But, the most precious diamond on her crown, the most precious title, the one of which the others are a mere extension, is the one given at the Council of Ephesus on June 22, 431: Theotokos, that is, the Mother of God. Yes, Happy New Year to you, Mary, Mother of God! You became the Mother of God when your virginal body had the honour to truly give the Son of our Heavenly Father a human body, which enabled him to fully belong to the human race. You became the Mother of God when you said “Yes” and received in you the Word of God, the Word made Flesh. Incredible though this may sound, God did indeed say “Mama” to a woman! You became the Mother of God through your continual fidelity to your exceptional vocation, and, as Jesus will one day say: “My mother and my brother are those who listen to my word and put it in practice.” But who, better than you, did listen and put in practice these words of Christ? You were the Mother of God when, as you discreetly “meditated all that was said in your heart,” you prepared your Son for his great mission of salvation, for his final sacrifice. You were again the Mother of God when, under the impulse of the Holy Spirit, you were present at all the “births” marking the great history of salvation: Christmas, Calvary, and Pentecost. It is therefore not so strange that, in this day’s Gospel, the shepherds should have noticed you first before Joseph, and even before the new born baby. And they left marveling at this new born baby, obviously, but also at the picture of a mother feeding her baby with love. Such simple maternal acts carried in them an unsuspecting grandeur since they were being made to the Son of God. All the mothers of the world were thus promoted through you, and it is natural that they, in turn, have taken pleasure in calling their own infants as their loving “Jesus”. But, do you think saying “Happy New Year” to Mary is something a little out of order? Mary is in eternity; she is no longer in time. She has nothing to do with the New Year, which cannot add one little wrinkle to her face. Well, I’m not so sure. Mary is also the mother of humanity, and, by virtue of this fact, she continues to follow the story of each of her children. How can Mary be fully happy in her eternity if all her children are not united around the Father? She is interested in the New Year, and that is why I wish that she would not be disappointed with her children, especially Christians, who together with her are responsible for bringing Christ into the lives of others. In fact, Christians, and men and women of good will in our country, have disappointed the Virgin Mary, protector of Cameroon, throughout the past year. Do we need to recall that ten months ago, in February 2008, our country faced one of the greatest crises of its existence; what has been termed “the Food Riots”. These sad events, which no one would ever want to relive, brought distress into many families, whose children were killed as they took to the streets with empty hands to make themselves heard, to shout out their frustration against misery, unemployment, corruption and price hikes on our markets. Companies and individuals lost several years of investments and sacrifices through looting. What lessons have Christians, sons and daughters of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who govern our country and assume heavy responsibilities before God and before man, drawn from these events? It would seem that the promises made to reduce the prices of basic commodities were just wasted effort as the situation has deteriorated further, instead of improving. Go to our local markets and to the super-markets of our big cities and you will find that the price of a kilogram of meat, fish and chicken has risen dramatically. Housewives are suffocating under the price of even a liter of oil. There, where we thought a solution had been found, the situation seems to have worsened. The Cameroonian people seem to have been taken hostage in their own country because they can hardly breathe; they can barely obtain what they need at an affordable price. Everything is expensive. Which leads one to wonder who is making fun of who here. I continue to wonder when Cameroonians would be able to earn a salary that can enable them to make both ends meet each month. When are we ever going to feel secure in our towns and villages? Corruption, which has been so openly denounced but timidly tackled, is now not only expanding but has become a veritable institution, even though laudable efforts have been made over the years to combat it. Corruption, which earned Cameroon a “gold medal” on the list of the most corrupt countries in the world, even though we are “poor and highly indebted”, is a consequence of a greater evil, which evil, I stress over and over again, is called “impunity.” Insofar as the laws of this country shall continue to be violated and stepped on by the same people who voted them and are charged with the responsibility of implementing them, the fight against corruption shall remain ineffective. Impunity remains a veritable cancer in Cameroon because it rewards the guilty – often the rich and influential – and penalizes the poor and the weak. There, too, I wonder who is mocking who? When shall we recover the billions of francs that have been embezzled, and which, we are told, the embezzlers have openly admitted embezzling? When will the said money be restituted into the public treasury? And what guarantee is there that even when the said money finds itself back into the treasury other embezzlers of public funds will not siphon it away in turn? Not only should such money be restituted into the public treasury, but it should be used openly for social needs that everyone can see and that are of benefit to all Cameroonians. When will such stolen money, that has only benefited a handful of unscrupulous individuals, be used to build roads for our people? When will we build low-cost houses with this money to benefit all those Cameroonians languishing in shacks while those pillaging the public treasury, and their accomplices within and outside the country, are building for themselves colossal and ostentatious mansions as if to make a mockery of the poor? When will this stolen money be used to build new amphitheatres to ease the congestion in classrooms that make us ashamed of our universities where the young ones are packed like sardine to follow classes? When will this stolen wealth be used to electrify public places in our cities and villages where bandits take advantage of darkness to steal, rape and kill with impunity? Those are questions which each Christian, son or daughter of the Blessed Virgin Mary, cannot help asking, even if in Cameroon you are immediately branded an opponent of the ruling class by merely asking such questions?. But who can remain indifferent to such a state of affairs, or who is not appalled by it, insofar as misery and poverty continue to progress? How can it be possible that anyone in Cameroon can be happy all alone, while all around him all he hears are cries of distress? What we are condemning in our society is only the tip of an iceberg of spiritual poverty which has been consuming Christians and the authorities of our country. Pope Benedict XVI, who will be visiting our country over the next few months, puts it very clearly in his Message for the celebration of the Word Day of Peace: “We know that other, non-material forms of poverty exist which are not the direct and automatic consequence of material deprivation. For example, in advanced wealthy societies, there is evidence of marginalization, as well as affective, moral and spiritual poverty seen in people whose interior lives are disoriented and who experience various forms of malaise despite their economic prosperity.” Then why are we surprised that our country is advancing on two steps? Some have it all, while others have nothing. Some have worked to get what they have, while others have acquired what they have illegally and fraudulently. Material poverty afflicting the majority of Cameroonians is the result of this spiritual poverty, which renders the heart of the Cameroonian man and woman “complicated and sick”, as the prophet Jeremiah puts it. I again turn to Pope Benedict XVI, who writes: “When poverty strikes a family, it is the children who are the most vulnerable victims: almost half of those living in absolute poverty today are children. To take the side of children when considering poverty means giving priority to those objectives which concern them most directly, such as caring for mothers, commitment to education, access to vaccines, medical care and drinking water, safeguarding the environment, and above all, commitment to the defence of the family and the stability of relations within it.” Can we say that that is true of Cameroon? Is that what is happening in the city of Douala ? How often do we hear promises such as: school is free, or will be free, and yet parents are being crushed by the weight of debts because they cannot afford to send all their children to school? When then will this so-called free school become a reality for the ordinary Cameroonian? When will we have schools where each year the school books will not be changed in complete defiance of ethical and pedagogical concerns? Each year, parents have to buy new school books for their children. No where else in the world can such a joke be possible. The Holy Father, whom I quoted a short while ago, says in the same message that “the gap between the rich and the poor has become more marked, even in the most economically developed nations. This is a problem which the conscience of humanity cannot ignore, since the conditions in which a great number of people are living are an insult to their innate dignity and, as a result, are a threat to the authentic and harmonious progress of the world community.” I wish you, who do not want to disappoint your Mother in heaven, a Happy New Year. Happy New Year to you during this year of grace. Yes, each year is a year of grace, that is, a year in which God’s grace leads us. That does not mean that we will have a year without deaths, without disease, without disruptions, without solitude, without inundations, without suffering. It is a year in which you are assured that, whatever your condition of life, Emmanuel, God with us, shall always be at your side. He will always be in the heart of the storms of your life, even if you think that he is sleeping in a cabin. That was the secret of Saint Therese of Lisieux, whose relics – a bone from her arm – which is in the sarcophagus that is in front of you, had to endure during nine years of her monastic life at Carmel de Lisieux. She threw herself in the arms of the Lord like a small, helpless child entirely dependent on his Father. That is the small way, the secret of her spirituality: total abandonment of herself in the hands of God whatever difficulties she might face in life. I appeal first of all to the youth to answer the call of the Church in various ways and in groups that will be organized throughout this year in preparation for our Diocesan Synod. The youth will become adults in a world where materialism, individualism, egocentrism, shall endanger peace and democracy. One spiritual writer once said: “When the youth become cold, the rest of the world gnash their teeth.” Our world has become an immense supermarket where one shelf is completely empty, that of values. Economic considerations hold sway over the spiritual; private interests supersede the common good. Are you then surprised that corruption should reign supreme, even in areas where the youth are the most active, such as sports? Speaking of poverty, the Pope, whose message for this year, I invite you to meditate on, raised the disturbing problem which touches both adults and youth alike, but especially the youth at the most active part of their useful life in society; we are talking of diseases that are wiping out whole generations: “Another area of concern has been the pandemic diseases, such as malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDS. Insofar as they affect the wealth-producing sectors of the population, they are a significant factor in the overall deterioration of conditions in the country concerned. … It is especially hard to combat AIDS, a major cause of poverty, unless the moral issues connected with the spread of the virus are addressed. First and foremost, educational campaigns are needed, aimed especially at the young, to promote sexual ethic that fully corresponds to the dignity of the person.” May the youth reject the superficial world where the talk is more of Miss Cameroon, Miss World, than of young men or women who live morally upright lives, in solidarity with those who suffer, fighting there where he or she opposes all forms of moral and material corruption. I now wish you all, Christians of today, who live in a secularized world in which you are in the minority and are not very visible, not to become the “fake” ones of tomorrow; but to be the neon light, like those thousands of lights that brightly light up our streets during festivities.
What worries me is that SDF will still play to this game knowing the results. Southern Cameroonians please lets come together, this is not our fight.
Reaction to New Year’s address: Tumi launches wholesale attack on Biya! Using his mass of New Year’s day the Cardinal castigated the regime on wide ranging issues:- elections, corruption, crime, galloping prices of basic commodities, etc. He concluded “God is gravely upset with Cameroon’s leaders.” By Ntaryike Divine Jr in Douala Christian Tumi, a legendary critic of President Paul Biya took the first opportunity to assail the president in reaction to what was believed to be the latter’s New Year’s address to the nation. The Cardinal and Archbishop of Douala used the homily of his New Year’s day mass at his jammed packed Cathedral to take up the president on a wide range of policy issues, many of which were contained in President Paul Biya’s address to the nation on the eve of New Year’s day. Without referring neither to the president nor to the speech directly, the Cardinal left none of his audience, estimated by the thousands, in doubt as to who and what he was addressing. He attacked the government’s record on elections, democracy and good governance, crime control, rising prices, unemployment and corruption. Noting the failure of the regime, the Cardinal declared that “God is gravely upset with the leaders of Cameroon.” The Cardinal who has often rejected calls to stand elections against Biya lamented that he would have been tempted to go into politics had the playing field been even. At points during his 30 minutes sermon, the Cardinal almost came to tears lamenting about the future of Cameroon which he said was edging inexorably towards wholesale chaos. In response to President Paul Biya’s optimism about future elections in Cameroon with the putting in place of ELECAM, Tumi regretted that the electoral system in Cameroon had only become worse and that even in the one-party days elections were better orgnaised. Tumi had even harder words for corruption and the government’s inability to eradicate it. “It is now only expanding and has become a veritable institution; a culture… Corruption, which earned Cameroon a gold medal on the list of the most corrupt countries in the world… is a consequence of a greater evil – impunity. We know all those pilfering state funds, but they are arresting banana thieves,” he said. The Cardinal also castigated the government for its inability to check the ever galloping prices of basic commodities on the market. “Do we need to recall that 10 months ago, in February 2008, our country faced one of the greatest crises of its existence?” he rhetorically queried. He said promises made by “those who govern us and assume responsibilities before God and man” to check soaring basic commodity prices have amounted to “wasted efforts as the situation has deteriorated further.” The archbishop attributed the high crime rate in Cameroon to high unemployment among school leavers. He regretted that Cameroon would have such high unemployment inspite of its rich endowment in natural resources. The cardinal’s sermon lasted half an hour. It was the first time ever that he attributed his unwillingness to go into politics to “unlevel paying field.” He has usually in the past only said that upon becoming a priest he vowed to stay only a priest. Tumi has for many years been an unrelenting critic of Paul Biya and his regime. He once said in a press interview that it was his way of showing love to the president.
You call your self a Southern Cameroonian and yet vomit this rubbish, as if you are a blind monkey. If you dont know the difference between your compound and that of your neighbor? then a pig is better than you. Be wise bro and write wisdom. Happy new year
You guys are funny why do u keep responding to this idiot? Talk other things men other wise you are dancing his dance.
United what? it looks to me like you know this popomustgo or if not. Then he knows you. Gentlemen in the days of the Southern Cameroons was there anything like North West and South West? Dont you see that fathers have been pitched against sons and sons against fathers? You are talking and blaming Foncha. I will ask all of you to read the two alternatives again, and you will thank Foncha. Foncha faced two evil and chosed the laser evil. If we hard join Nigeria the story would have been a different thing. But you see on the part of joining La Republique it is written in the two alternatives that we are joining to form a federation. You would be right to have said Foncha could have joined his friend and ask for the third alternative. But also have your eyes on the situation too per that time.
Thanks Mr Bobga you are a real humanist. God bless you now and for ever.
It is very very uncontainable that some Southern Cameroonians still see themselves as Anglophones. At the same time blaming other Southern Cameroonians that we do not reason as one. Its a pity if you are only an Anglophone. Start shaking the dust of your body and some one will be able to help you where your hand can not reach.
