Ntumfor Nico Halle Calls for befitting reception For Biya

By Chifu Edward - Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle, the pacifist and illustrious son of the region, has called on all and sundry to reserve a befitting reception for the Head of State, President Paul Biya on his visit to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Armed Forces in Bamenda. He said Biya deserves kudos for the relative peace Cameroon enjoys in spite of minor social hitches which are but normal for any emerging economy.

He averred that if President Biya was not a shrewd and peace-loving Head of State, Cameroon and Nigeria would have had bloody confrontation over the Bakassi Peninsular. He also hailed the former president of Nigeria Ulosogun Abasanjo for pacifism. He was speaking at the Presbyterian Church centre.

Fight against all forms of societal ills
Beside that, he challenged The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) National Committee for Men’s Work (NATCOM) under over-lordship corroborate Cameroon government vigorously fight against all forms of societal ills, election rigging, corruption, embezzlement and unemployment in the country. This was arrived at during the 2010 PCC NATCOM meeting in Bamenda from Wednesday August 25.

He regretted some of his members
I the NATCOM meeting which has as theme; In Times of Crisis Seek God’s Power – Daniel 2:20-22, the CMF National president, Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle, emphasized that government has been fighting corruption alone “…And if the church is the conscience of the society, it ought to champion the fight against corruption, bribery, election rigging, embezzlement and unemployment”. He regretted that some of his CMF members were very involved in these societal ills and so the fight against these ills and should holistic for them to be nib in the bud.

Mobilize CMF
NATCOM, Ntumfor said, will mobilize CMF and other facets of the PCC to fight the societal ills “So that tomorrow we will have a legacy to hand to our children”. It beat his imagination that Cameroon which is known by all as the Switzerland of Africa with all natural resources and intellectuals was plugged by poverty and misery.

Peace reigns
Ntumfor promised that CMF and the PCC will be involved and do all to ensure that peace reigns before, during and after the occasion. “We will wage a war against anybody who shall attempt to disrupt that special occasion”. He lauded the army who managed the Bakassi crisis in such a way that it did not escalated into a full-blown war which should have led to the lost of lives and property.

NW Basic Education boss replaced

By Nyassah Julius - The North West Regional Basic Education boss, Mr Boma Christopher, was recently replaced to enjoy a befitting retirement after a virtually whole career of bossing all institutions to which he belonged. Boma Christopher wrapped up the Regional Sectoral Conference meeting and about an hour later he was replaced by the Mezam Divisional Delegate for Basic Education, Mrs Fon Susan, who herself was in the Sectoral meeting.

Although Boma Christopher’s replacement was long awaited because he was due retirement a year ago, participants at the Sectoral meeting thanked God that news about his replacement did not meet him when he was presiding over the meeting else he would have collapsed. Just like John B Ndeh, who got the greatest shock of his life some years back when he was fired from the post of Transport Minister en route to Bamenda to launch North West Development Organisation so was Boma recently.

Foresaw his retirement
While John B Ndeh’s ill fate was masterminded by his political adversaries who saw his launching of the North West Development Organization as a political threat to their Prime Ministerial post, Boma Christopher was caught by his age. Although retired Boma is not tired. As smart as you can think Boma foresaw his retirement and started preparations by creating a Teacher Training College ‘St Andrew’.

Biya regime: replacing people
Replacing people while they are presiding over meetings is nothing new in the Biya Regime. One time Minister of National Education was replaced during the 1 p.m. news when he was presiding over a meeting. One time North Delegate of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr Mbipe Pius Sidiki was sacked when he was busy distributing fertilizers to farmers in Santa. His coup plotters are now enjoying his position.

Prepared for the retirement
However, the North West Basic Education Personnel at the meeting told The Vanguard that Boma Christopher was well prepared for the retirement. They said he is proprietor of about three private teachers training colleges all in the North West Region including mansions he has to his credit. “He therefore has anything to worry about during his retirement but for the fact that he will no longer manage millions of FCFA.

Appointment was not a surprise
As for his successor who hails from the PM Philemon Yang’s Village – Oku in Bui Division, her appointment was not a surprise to many who read newspapers. The CHRONICLE newspaper, had earlier on tipped her as Regional Delegate for Basic Education after Boma Christopher. Beside her level – headedness, she is God-fearing and hardworking nature. The CHRONICLE Newspaper saw her as possible replacement of Boma Christopher given that her God-father, Prime Minister Yang Philemon, also hails from Oku and wouldn’t have been indifferent to her appointment.

Fon narrowly escape lynching in Lanad Clash

By Tandap Samuel - The Fon of Ngarum in Ndu Sub Division and his seven followers narrowly escaped lynching in a land clash. The unfortunate incident occurred as a result of land dispute between a Mborroro family, who had lived in Ngarum for over 40 years, and the villagers. The Mborroro family headed by Ahmadou bought this piece of land of close to 1900 hectares from the late Fon of Ngarum for rearing cattle.

Following the recent out break farm land crisis, the new Fon wrote to the Divisional Officer of Ndu Sub Division on the land crises in his village. The Divisional Office reduced the Mbororo’s piece of land by about 70%. The Mborroro family did not complain, since their cattle had over the years reduced.

Fon instructed to demolish compound
A few weeks later, the Fon came back and this time around demanded to have the whole area for himself and his people. He did not care this time to consult the administrative authorities of the area; neither did he even consult the owner. He ordered the natives to demolish the Mborroro man’s compound.To add salt to injury he instructed the natives to butcher six bulls before burning down the house and 14 sheep.

Reinforcement from relatives
Ahmadou solicited and obtained reinforcement from relatives from neighboring village. A serous scuffle break out and Ahmadou sustained several wounds and his son’s left ear was cut off by a machete.The Fon of Ngarum narroely escaped a bullet directed at him. Peace only returned with the intervention of law enforcement officers from Ndu.

At press time there was an uneasy calm.The Mborroro man vowed that he was not move an inch out of the land. Opinions however are divided on the Fon’s action. The Administration is yet to decide the fate of the matter.

Angry mob drives 6-inches nail into alleged thief’s head

By Tandap samuel - Shey Weyi, from Luh Village in Ndu Sub Division was recently beaten and a 6-inches nail driven into his head before he died. The man was a prison graduate from the Bamenda Prison and had been in jail several times. He had become a real headache to the villagers as he stole just anything that came his way.

Shey Weyi, who was married, discovered an abandoned house belonging to one dead man in Kufluh village in Bui Division. There he succeeded in doing away with 50 sheets of corrugated iron roofing sheets (commonly known as ‘zinc’). Surely another command came after he sold the first fifty sheets and he equally needed some school fees for his children as well as a drink.

Mother awake
As fate would have it, he returned to the same compound for another deal. This time around he was not as lucky as before. Although it was drizzling one nursing mother was awake, awaken by her baby who needed some breast milk for its feeding.

Pleaded to be beaten
The strange noise from the dead man’s compound did not leave her indifferent. Immediately she heard the noise, and recalling that some sheets of the roofing sheets had previously been stolen, she woke the husband from his sweet slumber. Courageously the man tiptoed and alerted the neighbors who instantly laid an ambush. Noticing that he had been caught red-handed Shey Weyi pleaded to be beaten and allowed to go but not killed.

Dumped the corpse
He was allowed to climb down but the adrenaline in the mob had already risen to an uncontrollable level. They gave him a snake beating before driving a 6-inches nail through his head from the left ear to the right one. When he finally died they carried his corpse out of Kufluh and dumped in nearby Luh village.

Missing dead body
Unfortunately, and perhaps for fear of the unknown the ‘killers’ decided to hide the corpse. When the relatives were informed by a passer-by of the death they rushed to collect the corpse for burial but did not find it. At press time they are still searching for the missing dead body.

CAMCUL Building Inaugurated In Nkambe

By Ngah Benjamin - The Cameroon Credit Union League recently inaugurated its new building in Nkambe the capital of Donga Mantung Division. The population of this Division in general and the civil servants in particular saw this as a blessing especially at a time when the Division was almost cut off from the rest of the region by poor roads.

Presiding over the occasion the S.D.O for Donga and Mantung, Mr. Nseke Theophile thanked CAMCUL for such a lofty realization. He said the building should serve as catalyst in the development of the area. He called on the population, especially stake holders, to make maximum use of such an initiative by CAMCUL to better their lives.

On his part Nfor Musa Shey president of CAMCUL and BAPCCUL in his usual eloquent and charismatic manner told the people that the building will meant nothing if they don’t make use of the services it provides to better their living conditions. He further told the people that the gift was there already and what could make the givers happy was a judicious use of the structure.
The two-floor ultra modern structure was quickly nick-named ‘Queen of Nkambe’ by others. It is a magnificent structure ornamented with ceramic files just behind the grandstand.

It is worth noting that the structure also houses the office of the Bamenda Police Credit Union’s (BAPCUL) newly opened Branch in Nkambe. This branch which provides all banking services will surely serve and save businessmen and civil servants the hazard and disappointment of moving to and from Bamenda for salary and banking transactions.

The extension to this area will apparently boost economic activities and encourage creation of more cooperative credit Unions in the area. The official launching of the branch also saw to opening of Bamenda Police Cooperative Union branch in the area. Although some myopic economic operators saw it from a negative perspective all because of egocentric tendencies, both traditional, administrative and religious authorities alike gave kudus to their illustrious son of the region Shey Nfor Musa for assiduity and commitment to the development of the division.

The occasion was graced by several dance groups notably the Dajo of Binju, the Mfuh and the palace women choir. The events wrapped up with a gala night in one of the halls of the structure. Present at the launch were the Lord Mayor of Nkambe Council, Mr Mangoh Jones and a cream of Donga Mantung Fons.

Kumbo Development and Orientation Centre (KUDOC) Assists Orphans

By Ngah Bejamin - The Kumbo council hall was on Friday September 2, 2010 jammed to capacity by over two hundred orphans from all corners of Kumbo to receive financial and material aid from the Kumbo Development and Orientation Centre (KUDOC). The co-coordinator, Hon. Dr. Banadzem Lukong was there to do what has become a tradition. This year the assistance was over 2,472,000 francs in some basic school needs to over two hundred yearning orphans ready to go to school.

The occasion was graced by the S.D.O for Bui Division, the Lord Mayor’s deputy, some service heads, religious leaders, traditional leaders and a cross section of the population of Kumbo. It commenced with prayers seeking the love and mercies of God to bless the orphans.

All the speakers at the occasion were unanimous that orphans were not impediments to life but a driving force towards the realization of one’s dreams. They showered praises on KUDOC and its coordinator Hon Banadzem Joseph for the hand of fellowship to orphans. The beneficiaries were exhorted to make good use of the things offered them.

Hon. Dr. Joseph Banadzem, on his part, said he was spurred by the slogans ‘Being an orphan is not a crime’, ‘Make orphans schoolchildren’ and ‘Helping an orphan now is helping our society tomorrow’, to do more and more. He challenged those present not to forget the orphan but to always give the widow’s mite to help them.

He then recounted the history of KUDOC and presented a positive report card of its activities since inception, promising that their aim was to cover the whole of Bui Division in the coming years. He also expressed gratitude to groups which, in one way or the other, made commendable efforts to better the conditions of these orphans.

They included: the Family Life Association of the Diocese of Kumbo; the Baptist Fund for Vulnerable Children; the Chalice Organization, Tobin; the Capuchin Priests of Shisong and Melim and the Navti Foundation. The contribution of Bui family UNIC – USA (BFU – USA) to this success story was also emphasized and commended.

The orphans on their part beamed with joy as they pocketed five thousand francs (5.000) FCFA each for their school fees and at least a text book in a government school, four exercise books, two pens, one ruler, one pencil and a sharpener to start this academic year. ‘Beri ven foyi’ meaning ‘thank you very much’ as they departed to their various homes.

Security guards fail to stop launch of new political party in Yaounde

By Ndi Eugene Ndi - A new political party known as Republican Forum (FORE) has been launched with the major challenge to outset the CPDM in the 2011 presidential elections. Legalised last April 7, 2010, the party was officially launched in Yaoundé recently during a Press Conference by the executive members.

Speaking at the Press Conference the National Moderator of the party, Roland Roamin Kouotou said the Republican Forum party is a new political platform with a vision of making Cameroon a new powerful and emerging nation with new moral values and new socio professional structures.

“We have given enough time.
50 years proves maturity and one has to tell a story. 
But what story can someone tell about Cameroon 50 years after independence?”
Roland wondered in conclusion.

A country with more than 60 percent of its youths unemployed, Roland Romain Kouotou added that his party has emerged to find solutions to problems these youths face which has turned out to be a collective cry of all Cameroonians.

The Press Conference was also an opportunity for the National Moderator to denounce the tribalism that exists in Cameroon since the ascension to the Supreme Magistracy of President Paul Biya. He vowed that his own party will have to abolish it as Cameroonians are one.

Roland Romain Kouotou also used the Press Conference to condemn the ‘independent electoral body’ ELECAM. He said no free and fair elections could be chaired by ELECAM as its members constituted CPDM militants. Thus one of the challenges of the party would be to fight out ELECAM from managing any future elections.

The National Moderator of FORE called on Cameroonians to cease from being passive observers of a dying Cameroon and accomplices to mediocrity but to rather be actors who will take the challenge. “The desire to change and the destiny of our nation is in our hands, it is then our challenge”, Roland said.

2011 presidential elections: CPDM goes on the offensive

By Ndi Eugene Ndi - Following instructions from the National Chairman, the Secretary General of the CPDM Central Committee, René Emmanuel Sadi has been holding meetings with the party’s Central Committee Delegates from all the ten Regions of Cameroon.

-Central Committee delegates hold indoor meetings
-National Congress and 2011 presidential elections feature on agenda

The meetings began on Tuesday August 24, 2010 with Central Committee delegates from the Centre and South Regions. After the Centre and South Regions, the scribe of the CPDM Central Committee who was accompanied by some senior officials of the party like Gregoire Owona, Jacques Fame Ndongo, Francis Nkwain, Pierre Mokoko Mbonjo amongst others invited Central Committee Delegates from the East and Littoral regions who were proceeded by delegates from the North West and South West regions.

Talking to the press after meeting with the party’s Central Committee delegates from the Centre Tuesday August 24, 2010, the Secretary General revealed that the consultations were instructed by the National Chairman of the CPDM, the president of the Republic, HE Paul Biya.

Emmanuel Rene Sadi added that their deliberations centred on the upcoming presidential elections given that the party has to keep on preparing. Another focus during the meetings that ended on Tuesday August 31, 2010 is on the stakes and challenges of the CPDM as well as the projects of the country as a whole as delegates of the CPDM have a role to play in handling the challenges that the party and the country in general is facing.

They also considered the cases of some Central Committee members who were no more living in accordance with the texts in force. Given that some of the Central Committee members have either died or are not more Central Committee members, the Yaoundé meetings was also an avenue to discuss their replacement as the party is aimed at mobilising grass root militants for the 2011 presidential polls.

A Central Committee delegate from the North West region told this reporter at the end of their working session with the SG of the Central Committee that their aim is to see the CPDM scoring a hundred per cent in the 2011 presidential elections.

The third congress of the Cameroon Peoples Democratic Movement will be holding 14 years after the second and yet when journalists inquired to know why it is holding so late and the precise date of the ordinary congress, the CPDM scribe decided to keep it as a secret saying it is not up to him to declare the date.

Journalists who remained at the Conference Centre after the departure of the delegates of the Centre wondered why the information about the CPDM ordinary congress was averred when the date will not be made known.

Authorities maintain their position on newspaper editor's death in prison

From our international desk - Amsterdam - (RSF/IFEX) - Reporters Without Borders is appalled that an enquiry ordered by the president into a journalist's death in prison in April 2010 has come to exactly the same conclusions as to the cause of death as the explanation originally offered by the authorities.

The findings of the investigation into the death of "Cameroun Express" editor Ngota Ngota Germain (aka Bibi Ngota) in Yaoundé's Kondengui prison on 22 April were presented to a meeting of journalists on 14 September by justice minister and deputy prime minister Amadou Ali.

Quoting from an internal report by Norbert Francis Ndi, the chief doctor at the Kondengui prison infirmary, Ali said Bibi Ngota died "as a result of opportunistic infections linked to HIV, in a context in which his immune system had completely collapsed." No signs of torture were found on the body, he added.

This is an almost exact repeat of what communication minister and government spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary said just four days after Ngota's death, when he insisted that it was linked to his being HIV positive and not to any mistreatment. Bakary said Ngota voluntarily underwent an HIV test when admitted to the prison but died before follow-up tests could be carried out. Cameroonian doctors and human rights organisations criticised the disclosure of his personal medical details.

Reporters Without Borders deplores the position taken by the Cameroonian authorities and refuses to believe the version they are trying to impose on the public. The investigation was biased and there are no grounds for thinking that the truth has come to light.

The authorities are embarrassed by Ngota's death in connection with a story linked to the president's chief of staff and clearly want to close the case as quickly as possible, especially as it involves serious procedural violations, including violation of the presumption of innocence. Ali's refusal to take questions from journalists at the news conference was further evidence of this.

Bibi Ngota's widow, Georgette Ngo'o, told Reporters Without Borders: "I am traumatised by this case. I knew my husband perfectly well. We lived together for 13 years. Bibi was ill when he entered the prison. He had high blood pressure and diabetes, but he did not have the AIDS virus. I cannot accept the official version. All this has been staged in order to hide the underlying fact that my husband and his colleagues were arrested and placed in provisional detention although no complaint had been filed against them."

Bibi Ngota and two other newspaper editors, Serge Sabouang of the fortnightly "La Nation" and Robert Mintya of the weekly "Le Devoir", were jailed on 10 March. Sabouang and Mintya are still being held on a charge of forging the signature of the president's chief of staff.

Mintya's health is extremely worrying. He was physically attacked in his prison cell in August and had to be hospitalised for several days.

Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the provisional release of Mintya and Sabouang. After more than six months in provisional detention, they must either be brought before a judge as a matter of urgency or they must be released without delay.

Far North cholera epidemic preoccupies MINEDUB officials

By Ndi Eugene Ndi - The 2010/2011 academic year began some weeks ago for pupils and students in Cameroon. Prior to the official re-opening Monday September 6, 2010, officials of the central and external services of the Ministry of Basic Education met in their traditional annual conference in Yaoundé.

One of the preoccupations of the participants at this two days meeting was the cholera epidemic in the Far North Region of Cameroon. The epidemic had already spread to other regions like the North with several deaths registered most of them young school goers. Apart from the fact that young school goers were affected, primary schools had been transformed into treatment centres and at two weeks to resumption, officials were fine-tuning measures on how the pupils of these affected regions could resume classes. In order to do this, the ministry had embarked on raising awareness among pupils and parents that was why the slogan ‘No Cholera in Schools’ was immediately adopted.

Youssouf Hadidja Alim, the Minister of Basic Education indicated that emphasis should be placed on hygiene especially in areas with limited access to pipeborne water. All schools would be quipped with modern toilets or latrines, water points and pupils educated on waste disposal.

During the two days meeting, officials evaluated the just ended 2009/2010 academic year and fine-tuned strategies for the proper resumption of the 2010/2011 academic year which according to the officials would be characterised by many stakes that had to be overcome.

Speaking at the opening of the two-day meeting, the Minister of Basic Education, Youssouf Hadija Alim, expressed satisfaction with the results of the 2010 edition of examinations organised by her Ministerial department. The CEP scored 82.58 %, FSLC 81.78 %, Common Entrance 72.25 % and CAMPIEMP scoring 99.30 %. She was happy with all her collaborators for the fact that the road map assigned to her ministerial department for the academic year 2009/2010 was realised.

Holding under the theme “The 2010/2011 academic year in the context of Decentralisation”, it was an opportunity for the Inspector General of services in the Ministry of Basic Education, Nanga Charles, to elaborate on the decentralisation text relating to the Ministry of Basic Education and the state of Advancement by the Ministry of Basic Education.

In his exposé, Nanga Charles made it clear that despite the transfer of competence to councils, the nature of school buildings, location, classroom sizes, and transfer of teachers amongst others will be decided upon by the Ministry of Basic education.

Speaking at the closing, the Minister of Basic education urged her collaborators not to go slumber due to the fact that the results of the 2009/2010 academic year were satisfactory but they should continue to work harder to ameliorate the results.

Talking to the press, the South West Regional Delegate for Basic Education, Njika Joseph, was optimistic that the transfer of competence will facilitate the award of contracts as this will no more be done at the central services. He said the minimum packages being disbursed to schools will come in on time as the process has been decentralised.

When you are in Kondengui, you don’t sleep

By Ndi Eugene Ndi - The Administrator of Cameroon’s maximum security prison in Kodengui Yaoundé, General Nkemanda Lebule Francis was recently promoted to head the Regional Delegation for Penitentiary Administration in the South West Region. His departure from this dreaded area created waves of distress among inmates who had held this gentleman in very high esteem. He acknowledged that when you head this place you hardly sleep.

“Papa is going, papa is going…” were echoes heard from a crowd of prison guards at the Kondengui Central Prison in Yaoundé last Friday September 3, 2010 during the installation ceremony of the new Administrator of the prison. Inside the prison the cry was not different as inmates sang the same song like the prison guards. An inmate accosted by this reporter who craved anonymity said he doubts whether they would have any other administrator like Nkemanda Lebule Francis.

Appreciating
Presiding at the ceremony that took place at the esplanade of the Kondengui Central Prison, the Regional Delegate for Penitentiary Administration for the Centre, Tekam Joseph, appreciated the outgoing Superintendent for his services rendered to the prison for the past three years that he has served there in his capacity as Administrator.

You don’t sleep
The Regional Delegate noted that Nkemanda Lebule Francis was a serious and hard working prison administrator “that we are going to be missing, I hope his successor will also be like him” the regional delegate cautioned. Like the delegate, a subordinate of the out gone Administrator reaffirmed that we hope the new man is going to be down-to-earth like Nkemanda “without which I will just look for my transfer from this prison” the inspector of prisons said. To the out gone Administrator, who has now assumed the duties of the Regional Delegate for Penitentiary Administration for the South West region, he will remember Kondengui for several things prominent amongst which will be the fact that when you are in Kondengui, you don’t sleep.

The smile on Nkemanda’s face could tell how happy he was leaving the Kondengui prison after three years of relentless services and to him “I am very satisfied” he told reporters.

Foot pints left in the prison
Satisfied, he said, for he has left his foot prints in the prison. As colleagues and inmates would be missing him, the man who will not want to see any thing go wrong will be remembered as having created a library, his down-to-earth manner of treating inmates, his efforts at educating inmates, the respect of human rights in the prison, the judicious use of prison equipment amongst others. General Nkemanda Lebule Francis handed over the command baton of the Kondengui Central Prison to Senior Administrator of Prisons, forty-nine years old Tiwa Jonas.
