CAMEROON: A CAMOUFLAGE DEMOCRACY

The political parties themselves must reform and manage themselves in a democratic fashion so that they will be able to produce democratic, resilient, focused and patriotic leaders, who shall in turn lift this nation beyond the moment          *******************
Since the dawn of modern society, the basic responsibilities of government have been to ensure security of lives and property of its citizens, safeguarding the country’s territorial integrity, stability of the polity, to improve the economic and social wellbeing of its people. With this consciousness, those who control the levers of power and saddle with the duty of running the affairs of the country are burden with the not-so-easy task of formulating a political system and that of building institutions that they would consequently leverage upon in achieving their political agenda for the people, since every government comes to power with a clear-cut agenda. There are two operative words here for emphasis, political systems an…

Cameroon: Meet and Greet the New Teacher of G.H.S Dikome Balue

In our collective efforts to ameliorate the increasingly deplorable results of the General Certificate of Education (G.C.E) examination of Government High School Dikome Balue, which is a feeder school for fourteen (14) other villages in the Dikome Balue district, the leadership of DIDECO International, Inc. is beginning to address some of these ailing problems. For over ten (10) years now, the G.C.E results, which used to command an 80% and above has been on a steady decline. The responsibility to address these daunting issues rests squarely at the feet of the government of Cameroon and sadly enough, while the government has been extremely slow at addressing these problems, DIDECO International can no longer fold its arms. A few years ago, DIDECO International conducted a feasibility studies to determine the needs of our local schools. The study identified a bundle of issues: inadequate classrooms, lack of a library with locally prescribed books, acute shortage of teachers, lack of a …

Cameroon: Chinese Construction of a New National Assembly. What the Public needs to know

The new Cameroon National Assembly building project shall be in Cameroon’s capital city of Yaoundé. The building has been designated in a construction site area of ​​about 44,000 square meters, with a total construction area of ​​37,500 square meters. The main contents of the project include eight (8) major functions: main office building, semicircular conference hall, subsidiary room of the conference hall, celebration hall, fire guard building, guard room, equipment room and underground garage. The diagram above was designed bythe 6th Central Committee of the Chinese People's Liberation Army that won the bid to design and build the Legislative House. Rumor even has it that the contemporary design was already being circulated even before the building got burnt. Hmmn! The question that looms in the minds of many Cameroonians is, whether there are no Cameroonian-born architects who could have won the bid, design and supervise the construction of the new House of Parliament? Even tho…

One, United and Indivisible Cameroon: Beyond Language -two different nations, two distinct histories

The ongoing genocide in Southern Cameroons has dealt a devastating blow to any claim by those
propagating the big, fat lie that Cameroon is one, united and indivisible.

The regime in Yaoundé has totally lost the force of argument. Its blind use of the argument of force; the only option left for it, will fail because violence has never successfully prevented a people yearning for freedom from achieving it. It is important to remind French Cameroun politicians who hardly draw lessons from history that Cameroon was a union of two distinct nations involving two different peoples with two different histories and political culture, beyond French and English languages. Great efforts were made by East and West Cameroon to develop their resources and use same to better the lot of their people, as there was a sense of healthy competition among the two federating states. It is just enough to say that by unilaterally abrogating the federation in 1972, Ahidjo snatched defeat f…

One, United and Indivisible Cameroon – When Independence is worse than Colonization

No other territory in history has been so exploited and left to gnash its teeth in psychological and physical agony as Southern Cameroonsfollowing its recolonization by French Cameroun.

From 1953, Southern Cameroons was, to all intents and purposes, a country of its own, with almost all the appurtenances of a nation state, including self-governance, its own police force, parliament, and a senate known as the House of Chiefs. Despite the one, united and indivisible Cameroon hoax, the fact is that French Cameroun was a different country which gained independence from France on January 1, 1960 (as Republic of Cameroun) with international borders that did not include Southern Cameroons; which gained independence after a UN referendum on February 11, 1961. Even after the independent Southern Cameroons state joined French Cameroun in a two-state federation to form the Federal Republic of Cameroon on October 1, 1961, no Union Treaty was registered with the UN General Ass…

One, United and Indivisible Cameroon – The Myth, the Lies and the Truth

From 1884-1916, the Germans signed 95 treaties with various ethnic groups but there is nothing about German Kamerun that made the territory or the people one, united and indivisible.
By Ekinneh Agbaw-Ebai*
Amid increasing pressure for political restructuring in the wake of the ongoing Anglophone crisis, there seems to be a consensus among Francophone government officials and Biya regime apologists to echo what seems to be a new national slogan: “Cameroon is one, united and indivisible” and this unity is non-negotiable. However, despite the ubiquitous grandstanding, anchored on a willful misrepresentation and revisionist interpretation of history, the fact remains that, two distinct entities came together to form the Federal Republic of Cameroon in 1961. After 56 years of failed unification, the one, united and indivisible Cameroon mantra is a mere subterfuge for the parasitic affiliation for survival by French Cameroun on Southern Cameroons resources. The unity of a country is a structu…
