BREAKING: Boko Haram Stops Yobe Governor Gaidam From Voting

Boko Haram terrorists have prevented the Yobe state Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam from voting.

This was disclosed in a statement by the Director-General for Press Affairs to the governor, Abdullahi Bego.

The governor’s decision followed reports of attacks on two communities in the early hours of Saturday.

The first attack occurred in Gaidam town while the second attack occurred at Bunu Yadi area of the state.

Mr Bego, explained that Governor Gaidam did not travel to his Bukarti ward near Gaidam town – and 230 kilometres away from the state capital – to cast his vote.

He said that it was because of the incident in Gaidam town early in the day, which has already been brought under control and voting is now underway there, the security agencies would naturally seek to reinforce and increase security around the governor for him to travel to cast his vote.

“That increased security around the governor will mean that vital security resources that are needed elsewhere in the state would have to be diverted and allocated to the governor.

“We reckoned that that is more appropriate at this particular time than devoting a large security contingent just to escort the governor to cast his vote.

“As things stand now, voting is going on successfully across the state and His Excellency Governor Gaidam is pleased and grateful to the people for the large turnout at polling units throughout the state”.

The Yobe government commended the security agencies for their commendable and continuing effort to ensure a peaceful and successful election across the state.

Revelation: Paul Biya and Niat spend billions to 'cure' old age

The Franco-Cameroonian political elites, including opposition parties in Cameroon, consider President Paul Biya and the Senate President, Marcel Niat's last impromptu visits to Europe-Biya in Geneva and Niat in Paris for medical examinations. as a sign that the two non-francophone francophone leaders can no longer cope and should resign and open the way for a new and energetic blood to settle in French Cameroon.

The Franco-Cameroonian political elites have recently claimed that President Biya, Senate Speaker Marcel Niat, and Speaker of the House of Representatives Cavaye Yegue Djibril were costly to Cameroon and their frequent visits to Europe for medical care. drained the state coffers already dry, because the trio including other barons crime syndicate CPDM spend millions of euros on each trip, and all this money is taken in a country where people die from the consequences of a mosquito bite and thousands are killed in southern Cameroon.

According to the Cameroon Intelligence Report correspondent in Yaoundé, Amadou Ali, who has been appointed Deputy Prime Minister in charge of Relations with the Assemblies, was forced to leave the cabinet because of numerous health issues. Martin Belinga Eboutou would have left the country for Canada and we had learned from family sources that his stay on earth was coming to an end.

After the celebration of his 86th birthday in Mvomeka'a, many Franco-Cameroonian barons of the CPDM were heard privately whispering that Biya had to rest because at 86, he could not cope with the demands of the highest country function.

We believe that Biya and Niat are coming to Europe for health care related to the aging of their patients and cost the country millions of dollars. Europe is the most expensive destination in the world, but the ruling crime syndicate, the CPDM, is spending taxpayers' money without fear.

Speaking after having recently seen a picture of the President of the Senate Niat on social media and that of President Biya, our international correspondent Chi Prudence Asong stressed that old age is incurable and that Biya, Niat and Cavaye should be account and serve themselves and Cameroon. by retiring now.

"Biya, Niat and Cavaye do not serve anyone right now. They do a disservice to Cameroon. They have become major national commitments and we say they should be called one day. The parents and the women of Biya, Beti Ewondo, loot with passion and he has no control over them, which is why they want him to die. "

During his 36 years in power, Paul Biya spent more time outside the country than it was a threat to national security, because Cameroon can no longer afford to have a commander Chief always absent.


Yaounde: Supreme Court Judge expressed dissatisfaction on misuse of social media in Cameroon

Cameroon Supreme Court’s Chief Justice Daniel Mekobe Sone on Thursday expressed dissatisfaction with “rampant misuse” of social media in the country.

“Cyber space has become an excellent platform for freedom of expression without law and faith. It has become a court where everybody is judged and condemned without recourse to courts of law. A veritable space for defamation.” Sone said in the capital, Yaounde, while opening 2019 Judicial Year.

He said Cameroonians especially in the political landscape have abused social media in defiance of the laws of the land. He stressed that the law must be applied without fear or favor.

“As much as we want freedom of expression, we must ensure that citizens act within the law,” he said.

In his traditional address to the youths on Feb. 11, President Paul Biya expressed concern that social networks have become “the source of worrying excesses” in the country and often induce people to adopt positions that are “offensive to the authorities” in violation of the law.


Cameroons Crisis: UN Seeks Resources to deploy staff in the Country’s troubled regions

As reported in our last week’s editorial, the United Nations is seeking to deploy its staff in Cameroon’s two English-speaking regions. A report by the global body released on January 31, 2019, has slammed the government and armed groups in the country’s two English-speaking regions for the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the two regions. Produced in collaboration with humanitarian partners, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs ( report states that the global body is seeking US$ 15.2 million to start humanitarian operations in the Northwest and Southwest regions.

“As of 7 January, donors had provided 35 per cent of the US$15.2 million required as per the emergency response plan, according to the Financial Tracking Service (FTS). This amount constitutes the $5.1 million CERF allocation under the rapid response window. Additional contributions were received by other donors but not yet reported on FTS,” the report underscores.

The reports points out that the socio-political issues in and concerning the two English-speaking regions of the country have been a matter of contention throughout the post-colonial period. Political protests against perceived marginalization intensified in 2016 and in late 2017 violence erupted in North-West and South-West regions prompting violent clampdowns by security forces. With the increased deployment of defense forces and proliferation of non-state armed groups, the crisis has increasingly become characterized as one of armed conflict. Increased insecurity, violence and consequent widespread injury and civilian loss of life have forced thousands of families to flee their homes. Displacement continues to have serious consequences on the livelihoods and living conditions of the affected populations, the report says.

It stresses that “vulnerability has been further compounded by lack of access to farmland, by deterioration in medical and water facilities and limited access to education for children due to a violently enforced ban on schooling called for by armed groups.”

The report also points out that “little political progress has been made to resolve the conflict. The ‘Anglophone General Conference’ had been set to discuss the crisis on 21 November 2018 however it was postponed with no new date yet to be announced. Efforts continue at regional and national level and with the diaspora. The stay-home ‘Ghost Town’ protest continues to be observed every Monday across the two regions. There were heightened tensions on the 10th of January as the second day of the trial of the ex-leadership of the opposition movement was held in Yaounde. Numerous incidences of violence took place across the region. In some areas, particularly the Buea-Kumba axis, an effective ghost-town was observed between Monday 7th and Thursday 10th. The trial was adjourned until the 7th of February.

The global body is also concerned about the country’s political situation. “Escalating tensions in Francophone Cameroon including protests in Douala and Yaounde included the Anglophone Crisis in their discourse. Maurice Kamto leader of the main opposition party, the MRC, was arrested on 30 January in connection with these tensions. Tensions increased as the month of February approached with the stated intention of some armed groups to declare a ‘lockdown’ for the month which would prohibit movement similar to ‘Ghost Town’ Mondays. This was subsequently reduced to a ten-day period from 4th to 14th during which significant days for the opposition forces would fall. Namely the trial of the leadership, National Youth Day and the anniversary of the plebiscite which joined Southern Cameroons and Cameroon.

Regarding insecurity, the UN stresses that “Insecurity in the affected regions remains high, with continuing armed attacks and confrontations between the military and armed groups. The crisis further worsened from mid-2018 onward due to increased hostilities ahead of the presidential election. Movements continue to be restricted in the two regions due to a curfew in the North-West, a “No Movement” declaration by non-state actors and the increase of both official and informal checkpoints.”

“In the South West, on 3 January CDC workers of the Rubber Plantation in Tiko, Fako Division while at work were attacked by Non-state armed men (NSAG). They were tortured, and their toes and fingers cut off for working in the Plantation against the policy of armed groups. In January, troops clashed with armed groups across the two regions with ensuing fatalities and destroyed properties and vehicles. Military operations increased in both regions to counter armed group plans for February ‘lockdown’. Preventive displacement and stockpiling was ongoing at the time of writing of this report. Declining security situation during the month is expected,” the report says.

Hostilities have continued to claim civilian lives, from indirect fire and from disturbing reports of targeted killings. Urban attacks have resulted in deaths from cross-fire and civilian casualties have been reported as a result of raids on villages. In late January, large scale military operations were launched in the Bafut area resulting in numerous casualties for both combatants and civilians. On 25 January, the military killed 11 people they suspected of being armed separatists in Mpundu-Balong in the Southwest region. Incidents were also reported taking place in Marumba and Tiko amongst others. Abductions continue to be an ongoing concern.

The violence has uprooted 437,500 people from their homes and forced over 32,000 to seek refuge in neighbouring Nigeria. Humanitarian organizations are striving to scale-up their presence in the conflict-hit regions. Shelters, NFI and Education have been identified in the North-West and South-West regions as the most urgent needs. Almost 50 per cent of the displaced have settled in rural areas and have an increased need for shelter and non-food items. More than 80% of girls and boys no longer have access to schooling on a continuous basis because of the crisis, the report says.

The outlook for 2019 is one of emergency response as displacement continues due to the ongoing conflict. Vulnerability is compounded as services deteriorate and resilience is eroded. Access remains challenging as poor levels of understanding of humanitarian action persist and infrastructure is damaged in armed conflict related operations to deny mobility to opposing forces. Armed fighting and insecurity continue to be the principal impediment to the provision of assistance as well as a barrier to those in need in terms of reaching areas where they can receive aid, the report says.

The majority of those displaced are women and children. Protection is the principal humanitarian concern as the ongoing conflict is the main cause of human suffering. Food and shelter are also of concern as displacement continues apace. Needs across all sectors are high and are being further compounded as the conflict deepens. Of particular concern is access to water for areas requiring water transportation during days when movement is limited. Many of the conflict-affected populations are growing more vulnerable as the violence persists and humanitarian assistance remains inadequate, the report stresses.

The deployment of humanitarian actors to the field continues. A further allocation of CERF to Cameroon will in part support humanitarian activities in the North-West and South-West regions. As of 7 January, donors had provided 35 per cent of the US$15.2 million required as per the emergency response plan, according to the Financial Tracking Service (FTS). This amount constitutes the US$5.1 million CERF allocation under the rapid response window. Additional contributions were received by other donors but not yet reported on FTS.

The report states that the Humanitarian Response Plan will be launched on 20 February 2019. The number of people estimated to be in need of humanitarian assistance in 2019 has increased by 31 per cent compared to 2018, from 3.3 million to 4.3 million. The number of people who will be targeted for assistance has also increased from last year, from 1.3 million to 2.3 million. This increase is mainly attributed to emerging needs in the North-West and South-West regions. More than a quarter of people targeted by the response (28 per cent or 820,000 people) lives in the North-West and South-West regions, which are now priority areas of intervention. Sectors need US$ 93 million – or 31 per cent of the total appeal – to support 437,000 IDPs in these two regions, the West and Littoral, and 376,000 vulnerable host communities due to forced displacement and disruption of social and health services.

On the 22 January, the Ministry of Territorial Administration held the first meeting of the Emergency Humanitarian Assistance Coordination Centre in Yaounde as decreed by the Prime Minister on 21 November. The UN is expected to be invited to the next meeting. Antenna meetings in Buea and Bamenda have been indicatively planned for February. The humanitarian community continues to work towards a coordinated approach to ensure upholding of humanitarian principles while delivering urgently needed assistance.

The inter-cluster capacity mapping for the South-West Region has been completed and that of the North-West Region has been initiated. The Access Working Group reinitiated its activities in the New Year and continued its efforts on an access mapping. A repository of administrative requirements and procedures is being created and ground rules for field staff are being developed with the objective of strengthening a unified principled approach of all humanitarian actors vis-à-vis both parties to the conflict.

The report also stresses that six of the eight activated clusters, and the Areas of Responsibility (AoR) for Child Protection and Gender Based Violence were functional during the month. Education and Logistics were not staffed. Several clusters and AoRs were able to also implement coordination activities in the North-West and it is hoped that the others will follow in late February following the ‘lockdown’.

The report also underscores that the food security situation of internally-displaced populations and affected host and local communities in the North West and South West regions remains critical and continues to deteriorate as many of them cannot access their farms for crop production. The findings of the ongoing VAM/FSMA are expected to provide a clearer picture in terms of the severity levels and the geography of food insecurity. Preliminary results of the IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Analysis in the regions have indicated that poor households (with little or no income from both host and local communities) and IDPs could move from being moderately/borderline food insecure (Phase 2) to having acute food and livelihoods security needs (phase 3, Crisis) from February 2019.

In January, General Food Distribution by WFP took place in in Meme and Manyu Divisions in the South West region. As of 26 January, Food distribution has reached 17,000 beneficiaries for the month. WFP organized a Training for Rapid Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) on 4-6 January. Data collection was also conducted. The preliminary results are expected to be released in early February.

At the same time, FAO’s emergency livelihoods projects are underway. The poultry project which aims to reach 1,000 households, targeting both IDPs and affected host and local communities, has completed its inception phase in partnership with a local NGO. Cluster coordination meetings took place on 17 January for the South-West, and on 31 January for the North-West.

Regarding health, a large proportion of health structures have closed completely or open only sporadically to provide services. Most middle level and senior health staff (medical doctors) have abandoned their posts as they face increased security risks including kidnapping and retaliation for treating patients belonging to parties of the conflict. In many structures, service continuation is only guaranteed by lower level staff with higher level of acceptability as they are usually long-term community members.

Provision of supplies, including vaccines, and medicines to health structures is dangerous. Violent incidents and attacks on health care are widely reported and shared on social media. Since the end of January, partners can report attacks through the health care platform ( to increase visibility and acknowledgment of the problem and advocate for change.

With the sustained level of violence and displacement, mental health needs have dramatically increased while available services are limited. There is an urgent need to build capacity of all health care providers to provide mental health first aid to patients, as well as to be the recipient of these services for their own wellbeing.

The disease surveillance system has collapsed for more than 70 per cent of the territory putting the population at risk of epidemics with late detection and limited response capacity. WHO plans to address this gap by the roll-out of EWARS which has proven to be effective in numerous emergencies.

Data from partners and the HIV program indicate that the whereabouts of a large proportion of HIV positives enrolled in the program is unknown. The interruption of ARV medication puts HIV positives at risk to develop AIDS. With an overall HIV prevalence of 5.1 per cent in the North-West and 3.6 per cent in the South-West (CAMPHIA, 2018) there is a high risk of a dramatic increase of new infections.

Two Health cluster meetings took place in the South-West, and one in the North-West region, with the active participation of up to 29 organizations, including local and international NGOs and UN agencies. A sexual and reproductive health working group was also established. Coordination with the three largest faith-based organizations (Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian) providing primary, secondary and tertiary health care in the two regions is ongoing. Overall the medical teams in the faith-based structures have long historical presence in the communities they serve and a higher level of acceptability than health services provided through the public sector.

UN agencies are finalizing partnership agreements for the implementation of health interventions with local and international partners in their respective areas of expertise. Several INGOs have presented proposals to donors to start health interventions in collaboration with local partners. Some have started implementation preparation, including the establishment of presence in the region with the expectation to be funded soon.

This report is proof that the United Nations has been working behind the scenes to get things under control. Internally displaced persons and those in the two regions should therefore be advised that they can seek help at the nearest UN office in their region. For now, there are two UN offices in the two English-speaking regions of the country – Buea and Bamenda.

The UN’s presence on the ground will help the world to have a better picture of what is happening in the regions. It will also help to reboot the economies of the regions and create many indirect and direct jobs for people living in the two regions.

Maurice Kamto along side with all supporters arrested face the death penalty

Opposition leader Maurice Kamto will today be summoned by a military court on charges which carry the death penalty, as the Cameroonian authorities intensify their post-election crackdown on critics, Amnesty International said today.

Kamto, the president of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (Mouvement pour la Renaissance du Cameroun-MRC) is the first of a group of 131 people arbitrarily arrested last month and charged by the military court with rebellion, hostility against the homeland, incitement to insurrection, offence against the president of the republic,  and destruction of public buildings and goods, to be summoned by an investigating judge. They all face the death penalty which is the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment and a violation of the right to life.

It is horrifying that the Cameroonian authorities are considering sentencing Maurice Kamto to death simply for daring to participate in a peaceful protest. He is one of many people who have been caught up in a wave of mass arrests as authorities attempt to silence their critics. Marie-Evelyne Petrus Barry, Amnesty International’s West and Central Africa regional director

“As well as having their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly crushed, many of Cameroon’s opposition members are now facing unfair trials by military courts. We are calling on authorities to end this ruthless assault on dissenting voices. Civilians should not be tried by military courts and should not face the death penalty for exercising their human rights.”

International and regional human rights bodies including the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights consider that military courts should not, in any circumstances whatsoever, have jurisdiction over civilians. This is also recognized in the Principles of fair trial in Africa.

Following his arrest on 28 January, Maurice Kamto, who was also a presidential candidate, spent two weeks in detention, during which time his lawyers and family saw him only once. He is detained at Yaoundé Principale Prison along with six MRC supporters and officials. The rest of the 131 are detained in a different prison. Amnesty International considers that they should have never been arrested in the first place.

On 19th February, 12 of another group of 15 opposition members arrested on 26 January in Yaoundé appeared before an ordinary court. According to the prosecutor they had been arrested for attempting to participate in a banned demonstration. The hearing was postponed until 25 February.

“Authorities should stop being less and less tolerant of criticism and take concrete actions to promote human rights,” said Marie-Evelyne Petrus Barry.

Cameroon Crisis: the urgency of special measures

This is apparent from the first biannual conference of governors of Regions, held February 14 and 15 in Yaounde.

"The administrative authorities must spare no effort, to ensure, throughout the national territory, the safety of people and their property." This recommendation formulated by Paul Atanga Nji, the Minister of Territorial Administration (Minat), at the first semiannual conference for the year 2019 of the governors of Regions, organized in Yaounde, from 14 to 15 February 2019 under the theme "Administrative authorities and strengthening the security of people and their property", responds to a socio-political context marked by the war against the terrorist sect Boko Haram in the Far North, the Anglophone crisis sprayed with acts of terror perpetrated by separatist forces in the North-West and South-West, and the phenomenon of hostage-taking with ransom demands in Adamaoua.

The Yaoundé meeting had the appearance of a council of war, in view of the presence, alongside the Minat, of several members of the government and authorities in charge of security issues, including Martin Mbarga Nguélé, the delegate general to the National Security, and Emmanuel Nganou Djoumessi of Public Works. All determined to make prevail the republican order and the rule of law, through interventions, the pooling of forces, the reinforcement of the capacities of the forces of the maintenance of the public order and the announced recruitment of 5000 policemen to support the Special Rapid Response Team (ESIR), Etc.


Paul Biya had already sounded the alarm on December 31, 2018, during his presentation of New Year's greetings to the Cameroonian nation 2019. "Since security is the sine qua non of civil peace and economic and social progress, it must have priority". "If the call to lay down the weapons that I launched to war contractors remains unanswered, the defense and security forces will be instructed to neutralize them. I am well aware of the desolation that these insurgents inflict on the populations of these regions. This situation can not continue".

In a spirit of national harmony, the President of the Republic decided, in order to avoid the use of extreme measures, to create a "National Committee on Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration". This body, under the authority of the Prime Minister, has the mission of organizing, supervising and managing the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of the ex-combatants of Boko Haram and the armed groups of the North-West and South-West. West willing to respond favorably to the offer of peace made to them. According to the president, this initiative offers "an honorable way out for these ex-combatants as well as a perspective of social reintegration". It should allow a return to calm and a normal life.


And yet, the tension in the North West and the South West has not diminished. On the contrary, in recent weeks, these regions have been the scene of violence of a rare intensity. Twelve (12) "light" wounded were registered on 12 February 2019 in Muyuka, during the attack on Southwest Governor Okalia Bilai's convoy heading to Kumba Station, where the district hospital suffered an attack attributed to the separatists, on the night of 10 to 11 February. Attack that killed four people.This is the second time that the delegation of the Governor of Southwest is attacked. The secessionists' first attempt was recorded in April 2018. On July 12, 2018, the procession of the Minister Delegate to the Presidency of the Republic in charge of Defense, Joseph Beti Assomo, was fired on by separatist groups in Kumba, a town located in English speaking area.

An attack also attributed "to the secessionists who attacked the elements of the sweeping patrol of the minister's convoy," reported Colonel Didier Badjeck, head of the communication division at the Ministry of Defense. This other attack left several injured including a journalist from the daily Cameroon tribune who accompanied the ministerial delegation. Six (06) secessionists were neutralized by the Cameroonian defense forces. In the face of these hordes of criminals, the government is starting to react. On the instructions of the Head of State, 130 elements of the polyvalent intervention group of the National Gendarmerie (GPIGN, an elite unit of the gendarmerie specialized in the fight against organized crime and the fight against terrorism) were deployed in the 'Adamaoua shaken by hostage-taking perpetrated by armed men, with a balance of nearly 2 billion FCFA and 8 thousand heads of oxen carried between 2015 and 2018.Despite criminals who would benefit from complicity among the populations who keep the silence for fear of reprisals.


Cameroon Crisis: message to the entire Cameroonian army

In this period of political crisis as our country has never known for decades, the

CCT through my voice comes officially to address all the armed forces and police regardless of rank, from the junior soldier to the superior officer to invite them to choose their side. This camp is none other than that of the sovereign people for whom it assumes the sacrifices of honor and fidelity.

Indeed, it is worth remembering that since the outbreak of the Anglophone crisis and the other political crises that followed because of the rigging of the last presidential election last October and the bad dictatorial governance exercised by the tyrant Biya Paul,

Cameroon has become embroiled in a spiral of violence whose consequences, at once material, socio-political, economic and above all human, are unspeakable.

It is no longer a question of endorsing this state of affairs. It is questioned that you make a choice. The choice of the republic. The choice of the sovereign people who decided to take their destiny into their own hands.

My dear Comrades,

It has been 37 years since this regime has continued to use you to stay in power. It has been 37 years since this interested and incompetent regime began to sell you privileges that you owed to you simply because they managed to corrupt some old generals thirsting for privilege. How many of you have not been approached to buy internships both inside and outside the country? How much have they not minted for their own advancement and how many are today in the esoteric, satanic sects and others forced to become homosexual simply to benefit from the benefits due to your services. .WHAT MISERY !

Dear comrades,

Do not fool yourself. Your main enemy is indeed this pyromaniac and corrupt system that has only instrumentalize you to sock their benefits. Today, do not you see that they are holding you through blackmail? How many of you have already bothered to reflect on what has become of their ideal of the army when joining this body and what they have become now?

The truth is when Without you knowing it, you have become criminals, thieves, arsonists who set fire to some institutions at night to recover or destroy evidence charged to their packages and at the same time they have make you sellers of human organs to satisfy their networks of ritual crimes and satisfy their unbridled urge to consume fresh human blood and human organs.

Yes, my dear comrades,

As you look directly into your eyes, I tell you that you have become child abduction specialists in order to supply their pedophile networks. Yet it is unfortunate that this is not the mission for which you have been trained. Your mission has always been to protect and secure citizens and the Cameroonian territory. You betrayed him.

My dear comrades,

do you know that those you serve today are all double-nationality and ready to go at the slightest shot? Do you know that their fortunes give them life insurance at least until the 4th generation without them, their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren never miss anything? And you then in all this? Why continue to accept this voluntary servitude that slowly kills you and enriches your executioners?Do you realize that this is an 87-year-old great-grandfather who has nothing to gain and who sends you to put your lives and those of your families in danger? What will become of you in the near future when things have changed and the same people that you fought will ask you to account since Biya will not be there anymore?

My dear comrades,

Do you see where our country fell? A country where software is developed injustice, abuse and all

kinds of trafficking in influence with arbitrary imprisonment as was the case of Professor Maurice Kamto and his allies without forgetting the case of this young the name of Jules Omer Tchuenkam forgotten in the prison of Yaoundé without judgment for 10 years.

So that's where we are. A country devoid of all human and moral values. A country of countervalues ​​or members of the government praise the genocide, terrorism, insult the memories of the dead including those of the friendly countries and call for insurrection.

Dear comrades,

You are the army. You are supposed to be neutral. You must not be complicit in the actions of a diabolical and illegitimate regime. Refuse to associate yourself with the ongoing genocide in English-speaking areas by now disobeying the illegal orders of tyrannical power.

You see, they give orders from their muffled offices in Yaoundé with their children abroad and it is you they send to the cauldron of death.

With the foregoing, I invite you, dear comrades, to put you firmly at the service of the people. It will concretely neutralize this satanic regime of Biya and her clique who will not skimp on any means to sacrifice to protect their interests.

Choose your side now which is that of the sovereign people and the people will be grateful to you forever. GAME IS OVER!


Long live the CCT

Partnership: Algeria now eyed in Cameroon

It is in this wake that this February 20, 2019 to Promote, the intervention of Ambassador Merzak Bedjaoui. This is to enlighten the Cameroonian public opinion, especially the community of economic operators on the opportunities for partnership with Algeria.

Because of its African dimension, Algeria today has an economic policy firmly focused on sub-Saharan Africa, and it is constantly increasing its efforts to establish economic and commercial links with African countries. It is in the prospect of reconnecting with its natural geographical extension, that Algeria organizes seminars, fora and fairs to expose its assets to potential partners.

After North Africa, West Africa and the Sahel, Algeria plans to deploy economically in Central Africa (CEMAC), and it is Cameroon that is selected to be the pivot country and the plate its economic partnership with this subregion, which includes Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Chad.

The choice of Cameroon to establish a sustainable economic partnership with the countries of the Central African region is not fortuitous, because it remains the most important in terms economic, geographical, strategic and demographic in this region and is his heart beating, as well as its opening door. Algeria and Cameroon are driven by a strong desire to enhance their economic partnership, considered weak and unsatisfactory in view of excellent political and diplomatic relations between these two friendly countries.

The Algerian Embassy in Yaoundé, in consultation with the Cameroonian officials concerned, has drawn up a concrete roadmap to strengthen the bilateral economic partnership and make 2019 "a year of Algerian-Cameroonian partnership".

The intervention of the Algerian Ambassador to Cameroon will focus on the regional importance of Algeria and Cameroon in economic and strategic terms, the state of play and opportunities for economic complementarity between the two countries, the consolidation and updating of the legal arsenal governing bilateral economic cooperation, the particular interest accorded to transport and logistics, the revival of the great Algerian-Cameroonian Joint Economic Commission, the organization of specific economic events in Cameroon, the creation of a commercial counter in Douala, the accompaniment and encouragement of the economic operators of the two countries in their partnership quest, and the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) as a bona fide opportunity for increase of bilateral economic exchanges.

Cameroon: how Nkotto Emane and his networks want to bring down Camtel

You have certainly noticed the copper and fiber optic networks are increasingly vandalized. The city of Yaoundé knows since last December an upsurge of the vandalism of the wired copper network as well as the optical fiber. It does not happen a week without a sector is vandalized and the cables multipares carried away. The quality of Internet service has been poor since last December.

In the same CAMTEL has no telephone products to market in its agencies and commercial points for a year. Dramatic situation. There are no MiFi modems, CPE modems, telephone sets, Out of stock that paralyze the numbers. The vehicles have been parked for several weeks for lack of fuel. Some sites are at risk of dry out because there is no fuel to supply certain sites that have reached the critical threshold in the tanks. There is no optical equipment (terminals, cables, connectors, ...) And brass (ADSL modem, cables and contactor, ...) To install subscribers.

Faced with the wind of change blowing in the box, some managers of the box do more fully assume their missions because they know they will not be renewed. To date, CAMTEL has no master plan for the year 2019. Because everything is blocked by the current PCA and libom Likeng, the current Minister of Posts and Telecommunications.

No mission letter has been established.No contract of objectives has been drawn up. Since the last council held on 29/01/19, the climate between the two is slightly tense.

But in reality, this situation is due to the crisis between the current CEO of CAMTEL and the PCA. The PCA wants total control over CAMTEL. Ms. ACHIDI ACHU inherited a poisoned gift. DG NKOTO left a mafia network on the spot. And Minister Minette Libom Likeng pulls the strings behind the scenes. She has placed many of her sons in CAMTEL. Among which dissack Ezekiel who is director whose departure is announced. He is in charge of the restructuring mission. Since November 15, 2015, this mission is on its feet. Nothing concrete has happened.

Ms. Achidi Achu faces the high mafia. She has a plan to reduce the number of directors, vice-principals and the like who are paralyzed. They are currently 135. Yes 135 directors at CAMTEL. The CEO has reduced to 60. That is to say 10 directors and 50 under directors and assimilated.That is a reduction of 75% of directors, under directors and the like. When we know that the hardship premium (weighting) of its 135 people costs nearly 300 million CFA francs per month to CAMTEL. We do not count the fuel of 300,000 to 500,000 FCFA each month. And others. Imagine the war.

Let's go on. The appointment of a director automatically entitles an equipment bonus of up to 10 million CFA francs. The appointment of a deputy director and equivalent entitles him to 7,500,000 CFA francs. The CEO wants to reduce these unnecessary expenses by reducing positions of responsibility. But the PCA wants that 08 of the 10 directors who will be promoted will come from the minpostel. That is to say, the domination of Libom Likeng on Camtel.

At the same time. Since last December, CAMTEL no longer manages to publish invoices to customers because of the lack of papers. The main supplier who is none other than Ms. NKOTO EMANE claims the payment of unpaid. She wants to be paid before continuing to supply the business.

It's hot in Baghdad. The invoices of December 2018 and January 2019 could not be edited and printed by the Billing Control Center and the Reprography Department. All this because of the PCA, Mohamadou saoudi who is also the Sg of minpostel. But behind him lies Libom Likeng, the sister of Claude Abate, the fake graduate of the London Buisness School.Voyeurism is decidedly congenital in this family. But at least they can boast of having one that looks like them: Kouanne Kerosene.

Kamto case: French criminal lawyer to drag the Biya regime to international forums

After Paul Ayah Abine, a French lawyer is involved in the case of Maurice Kamto which experts say contains huge irregularities and procedural flaws.

Famous French criminal lawyer, known for the number of acquittals he obtained on French territory, he examines the Kamto case. Dupond-Moretti wants to drag the regime to international forums.


Situation of Mr. Maurice KAMTO, Cameroonian political opponent victim of an arbitrary detention Mr. Maurice KAMTO, of Cameroonian nationality, university professor, lawyer registered at the Paris Bar and politician, is the president of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC), the main opponent of the ruling power in Cameroon. Officially in second place in the presidential elections of October 2018, Maurice KAMTO claimed victory, and challenged the re-election of President Paul BIYA.

Today, along with more than a hundred other opponents, he is persecuted in the form of legal proceedings leading to arbitrary detentions. On January 26, 2019, the MRC organized totally peaceful marches to protest the practices of the Cameroonian authorities. Many activists and protesters were then injured by live fire by law enforcement officers, others arrested and held since then in illegal conditions and severely detrimental to their fundamental rights.

On January 28, at around 7:30 pm, Mr. Maurice KAMTO was arbitrarily and illegally arrested in Douala during a meeting at the home of a supporter, as well as nearly 80 people, relatives, executives and supporters of the MRC. and journalists, on the basis of a search warrant signed by the Public Prosecutor of Douala Ndokoti. He was then taken overnight to the Special Operations Group in Yaounde, a service attached to the General Delegation of National Security, without any notification of any act justifying detention. His lawyers were unable to locate him and to access him until two days later. Indicted for insurrection, group rebellion, disturbance of public order and hostility against the fatherland, Mr. Maurice KAMTO is now arbitrarily detained, and must be heard by the investigating judge of the Military Court of Yaoundé on February 26th. Mr Maurice KAMTO denounces the persecutions of a political nature of which he is the victim, and the repeated failings of his most fundamental rights. Mr. DUPOND-MORETTI should meet soon with him during a visit he will solicit from the Cameroonian authorities.

Beyond the remedies that can be launched before the Cameroonian courts, on which the recent analysis of international observers note the control of political power, Mr. DUPOND-MORETTI intends to seize any international body likely to note these violations, and call on the international community to intervene to ensure the respect of the fundamental rights of Mr. Maurice KAMTO and his release.


I am a civilian and doesn’t deserve to be tried and charged in military court, Maurice Kamto tells court

Cameroonian politician and opposition leader Maurice Kamto has told the military court that he is a civilian and doesn’t deserve to be tried and charged in a military court.

The court later postponed his trail until next week in order for court to make a decision about the legality of his trial.

Kamto and his supporters are being charged of insurrection – a crime punishable with the death penalty.

Other charges include holding illegal gatherings and disturbing the peace the peace of the country.

Kamto, a leader of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (MRC) and his supporters contested last year’s elections claiming that the country’s decade’s ruler Paul Biya had rigged the election.

He then called upon his supporters to hold protests in four major cities across the country which according to authorities distorted the peace and security of the nation.

Additional, authorities accuse the opposition leader of behind the master mind behind the recent attacks on Cameroonian embassies in Europe.

Kabuubi updates

Kamtogate: the new strategy MRC applies ahead February 23rd

If the RCM was a woman, she would already be dead by stoning. The blows and aggression we experience on a daily basis literally resemble the hail fallen on Egypt in the myth of the Exodus. It is impressive to see that we are more opposed than those who for 37 years, bear the only, the only responsibility of the Cameroonian chaos.

And I say it's a reason to be proud of it.

Because, as the saying goes, "We throw stones only at a tree that bears fruit". In other words, if we are attacked so much, it is because we have become a real political challenger that threatens the interests of the powerful. If there is such a forceful policing on each of our outings, it is because they know that the people support us and that the only way to prevent them from going out is to muzzle them by force and intimidation.

Then they repeat themselves to convince themselves of their own lie: "Kamto is not followed when he calls for mobilization"

For Saturday, February 23, we have launched a great day of recruitment RCM in the cities of Yaounde and Douala, open to all compatriots wanting to obtain a membership card. The event starts at 15:00 sharp and simultaneously. You are greatly invited, to demonstrate in fact, the interest seen in the thousands of people who confirmed me in their messages.

Because you will be denied the right to walk peacefully or protest, you will never be denied the right to become a member of the party you want.

But precisely, since we made this announcement, and the great success of Saturday that is emerging on the horizon, the attacks have increased. They create fake profiles in the hundreds to disrupt our live exchanges, as well as fake dialogues where members and sympathizers of the MRC insult each other and scuttling President Kamto.

Some good people have even taken on them to publish everywhere "The father of Wilfried Ekanga is CPDM ". Yes, because in their logic, if your father is a serial killer, you deserve prison with him, because you too are a serial-killer. For 37 years, they have been prevented from thinking for themselves, and it surprises them that others are free in their minds. So do not blame them. This is the Biya method: ZOMBIMORPHOSIS.

And to give nonsense all its splendor, they criticize everything and its opposite. We hear them say "Come to Cameroon yourself, we can see. Nevertheless, I leave 5 months in Cameroon where it is rather them that I did not see. The logic would rather recommend to them to say to Biya: "Go a little in the English-speaking area we see", since he claims to be the president.

But logic among the jealous does not exist. Never forget: the extent of your strike force is measured by the degree of hatred of your enemies.

Because the same, when we will walk well, rejoice shots in the legs of unarmed women and they ask: "You first walked why? ". When I tell you we are in the all and its opposite. Galactic nonsense.

But needless to dwell on them. I suggested to all MRC friends around the world to stop responding to our opponents, and to dedicate this week to promoting our special memberships day.We have no time or energy to lose with those whose only dream is to harm us. Our only challenge is to make February 23 a memorable day.

Because a party must continue to live, even in the temporary absence of its leaders. It is in this that his greatness is measured.

So be aware that all these stones are the hallmark of our success. The stamp of our strength. Do not react to insults. Do not insult in return. Delete or block those that hinder. SAVE TIME.

Doumaintang: the people disown the mayor

According to a close associate of the current mayor of Doumaintang commune, in order to evaluate the achievements of a municipal executive, a distinction must be made between the powers transferred by the State (the BIP, the general staffing of the decentralization and other complementary subsidies from public authorities.), agreements signed with development partners and other institutions (FEICOM and PNDP.) and investments from the municipality's own resources. The evaluation to be objective must only concern the achievements of the own resources of the decentralized territorial collectivity.

In Doumaintang, we can look at the revenues from the exploitation of the communal forest: the income from taxes subject to equalization and communal taxes. According to the same manager, "no project on own resources of the town has ever prospered in Doumaintang on a whole mandate apart from the acquisition of a pick-up vehicle at CAMI and whose clearance of the debt is very far from the term ".

He pushes the point by taking as other examples, "the construction of the place des fêtes and central roundabout with the financial support of the Urban Community of Yaounde and whose sites are abandoned. Moreover, the construction sites of agropastoral product marketing sheds are stopping in several villages. And more than 30 less staff salary arrears over the period from 2015 to 2018, with the corollary non-payment of social security contributions and other taxable deductions".

According to the annual ranking of the performance of the PNDP in 2018, the town of Doumaintang is 29th out of 33 in the East and 13th out of the 14 communes that account Haut-Nyong. All things that demonstrate the weaknesses of the mayor.

Dagoumé Ngamba Lazare, municipal councilor of the village Mbaguempal expresses concern about the situation."We find that after 6 years as a city councilor, nothing works in Doumaintang.The municipal executive is more involved in the loop of Woulbiam where he is from.

A few months from the end of the outstanding mandate, the achievements under the municipality's own funds are invisible in the rest of the municipality. We are hard pressed on the management side of the communal forest. When we seek to understand what is happening, we are intimidated by the prefectural authority which forces us to sign the documents blindly.

At the end of each session of our municipal councils, we are always embarrassed in front of our populations.What to say to those people who ask so many questions? As a city councilor, I tell you with certainty that the term of Mr. Charles Mbola Ndjas is a dismal failure and a crash all the way. Even more, our mayor is not visible, in Doumaintang. He lives in Yaoundé. The gates of the town are closed to users, "he denounces.

Zam Clovis, a young farmer from the locality does not feel sorry: "Concerning the management of the town of Doumaintang, we regret bitterly. The management of Mr Mbola Djas Charles is opaque and calamitous. We learned that the city of Mbaguempal benefited under the BIP, a staffing in the classroom and equipped latrines. But I can tell you that we have never had any realizations on the ground for years. Logging has already told us what benefit? Where did the road maintenance go? Where did the achievements made by the municipality come from, with the exception of the municipal inn whose equipment is invisible? We are in tears.

He goes further in wishing that the public authorities act, "We are penalized in the district of Doumaintang following the closure of the services of the town hall. In fact, the municipal agents, accused several months of unpaid wages.Moreover, the city hall is in a sorry state and the town is excessively indebted. Who will bear this burden after the next election since Mbola Ndjas Charles will be hunted here as a bush rat by local people.Besides, he does not reside here. We call on the government to open an investigation that will shed light on the current mayor's management. I invite our political elites to let us freely choose at the polls, our own mayor".

Interpelled several times to answer the facts, the mayor of the town of Doumaintang did not wish to speak on the subject. Accusing rather, our colleague Jean Jacques Zé to blame him for no reason. "There are 33 communes in the East but why are you particularly interested in the commune of Doumaintang? I am aware of your maneuvers and I let you do your job and know that journalists are not my constituents.. ", he warned.

Charles Mbola Ndjas before we hang in the nose, told us by the way, the visit of a member of the government in his commune on March 16 to touch the finger of his achievements.

Would he be trying to manipulate a minister of the republic to polish his image with his electorate? Let's wait and see.


Ambazonia: the institutional measures of Paul Biya on Anglophone crisis

Since the beginning of the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon in October 2016, Paul Biya the President of the Republic has resolved to respond to the solicitations of the plaintiffs. In first place, there was the creation of the Ministry of Decentralization and Local Development during the reorganization of the government that occurred on March 2, 2018. On February 6 and 7, 2019 in the capital Yaoundé, were held the first general meeting of the commune.

Decentralized territorial communities have been placed at the heart of the challenges of local development. The creation of the ministry that presided over these foundations was the fulfillment of Paul Biya's desire to solve the problems related to the crisis. It should be remembered that during his 2017 end-of-year speech, he stated "the consultations I conducted, but also the many opinions and suggestions I received, reinforced my belief that our fellow citizens wish to participate more fully in the management of their affairs, especially at the local level ".

The President of the Republic has also created the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism (Cnpbm), now headed by Peter Mafany Musonge. In his address to the youth of the 52nd edition of their party, Paul Biya said that this Commission is there to "tackle the heart of the problem."Since then Peter Mafany Musonge and the other members of the Commission have initiated raids in public administrations and structures to ensure the effectiveness of bilingualism. It should be remembered that, among other things, one of the missions of this structure is to work to promote bilingualism and multiculturalism in Cameroon with a view to maintaining peace and consolidating national unity.

Paul Biya also created the National Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Committee currently headed by Fai Yengo Francis. The structure that began on November 30, 2018, recently held its first meeting to evaluate its work in the field. This Committee is in charge of organizing, supervising and managing the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of Boko Haram ex-combatants and armed groups from the North-West and South-West wishing to disarm as wanted by the President of the Republic.

Another institutional response of the Head of State is the establishment of an Emergency Humanitarian Assistance Plan.It is June 20, 2018 that the said Plan was launched by Philemon Yang the Prime Minister at that time. The overall cost of the operation is just over 12.7 billion FCFA.On July 13, 2018, the official launch of the distribution of the aid took place. To date, according to the authorities, more than 60,000 people have benefited from these grants.

Paul Biya has also reformed the Supreme Court. The purpose of this action was to ensure respect for Common Law at the Court. There was therefore the creation of the section of the said Common Law in this jurisdiction. There was the promulgation of Law 2017/014 of 12 July 2017 amending certain provisions of the Law of 29 December 2006 on the organization and functioning of the Supreme Court. To these institutional measures should be added the reform of the National School of Administration and Judiciary.

In this interview, he talks about the work of the Committee he heads, which includes, among others, the Ministry of Secondary Education, Basic Education, Employment and Vocational Training, Youth and Civic Education, Sports and Physical Education, Civil Service and Administrative Reform. , Labor and Social Security.

"The Government of the Republic has made remarkable, visible and tireless efforts, together with all components of the educational community, to provide pragmatic, effective and consensual solutions to these problems. Without pretending to be exhaustive, I can quote the establishment by the government, on very high instructions from the Head of State, of a program of emergency school intervention for the Far North region, costing more than four billion CFA francs to allow closed schools, because of abuses by the Boko Haram terrorist sect, to accommodate displaced students and to function normally, the provision of teaching staff in refugee camp schools in the Adamawa, Eastern and Far North regions, and the organization of remedial classes for pupils in the North-West regions and from the South-West, the mobilization of the administrative authorities, the Defense and Security Forces, the municipal authorities, the elites, the unions, with a view not only to strengthening the security apparatus around schools and universities, but also the mobilization of parents and partners, the construction, rehabilitation and equipment of several classrooms in public primary and secondary schools, the publication by the Minister of Commerce of measures to prevent speculation of prices of textbooks and other teaching materials during the school year, the improvement of infrastructural supply in public university institutions ", says Fame Ndongo.

Chantal Biya: Jeune Afrique comes under attack

A consortium of French Cameroun media houses have denounced the pan African newspaper Jeune Afrique for fabricating lies against first lady Chantal Biya. Most of the French Cameroun publications that constantly receive bribes from the Yaounde regime recently observed that each year the Paris-based Pan-African magazine attacks one important individual in the Biya regime.

In some of the editorials, the Francophone publications noted that, ignorant of the political realities of Cameroon, Jeune Afrique indicated in a web of lies that it is the first lady Chantal Biya who is running the nation by imposing her kinsmen and women on the head of state.

In addressing the crisis created in Yaounde by Jeune Afrique, Le Journal showered praises on Chantal Biya and pointed out that she remains an icon of the Cameroonian nation.  Marie Claire Nnana, who now heads the CPDM government’s daily “Cameroon-Tribune”, stated that accession to power in Cameroon is governed by constitutional rules.

“L’Anecdote” and “L’Epervier” both reported that Jeune Afrique has been recruited by enemies of the Biya regime to destabilise Cameroon. For all these French Cameroun newspapers, Cameroonians are not superficial and know how to avoid the pitfalls.

A Jeune Afrique investigation had revealed that first lady Chantal Biya was positioning her kinsmen and women in leading government departments. Among them, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, Minister Secretary-General of the presidency of the republic, the most powerful member of the Chantal Biya galaxy who was made minister of state on the 4th of January.

There is also Pierre Ismael Bidoung Mkpatt Minister of Sports, (his wife Habissou Bidoung Mkpatt is in the circle of the closest to the first lady) and Oswald Baboke, (originally from the East and not Nanga-Eboko as the wife of the Cameroonian president). Oswald Baboke is the deputy director of the civil cabinet, responsible for the private affairs of the first lady. Baboke is currently one of Cameroon’s most influential leaders.

Last month, a large number of Cameroon government ministers appointed on the 4th of January 2019 traveled to Nanga-Eboko, Chantal Biya’s hometown and stronghold of Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh for a meeting of thanks to the head of state for appointing them into the government.

At least two people were killed in an attack blamed on Ambazonian Restoration Forces in Douala, the country’s economic metropolis. Cameroon government sources hinted that unidentified gunmen staged an attack late on Sunday in the locality of Mombo, (Littoral) bordering the Southwest region.

“Two people were killed in a shooting incident in the night on Sunday in Mombo. The attack was perpetrated by gunmen who came on board motorcycles from the Southwest region“said Samuel Ivaha Diboua, governor of the Littoral region in French Cameroun.

The governor further noted that a massive response from the defense and security forces sent the armed Ambazonia fighters away from the region.

Paul Biya is the best president in the world, see reasons

Why do I support Paul Biya? Because he did what no other president of the CFA zone could do. In 2009 he refused to renew the colonial agreements that the French had forced President Ahidjo and the other presidents of French-speaking Africa to sign in 1960. This means that since 2009 Cameroon has been an independent state. I say INDEPENDENT.And can dispose at will of his goods.Unlike Senegal, Mali, Niger or Gabon that will have subways, highways but all this is on credit and belongs to France and France will continue to loot their country. But we in Cameroon are now an INDEPENDENT country.

We can have partners of our choice and sell our raw materials as we please ... in Côte d'Ivoire, Laurent Gbagbo had tried to do as Paul Biya but he did not succeed. The French caught him and sent him to Prison in Holland and they placed Ouattara to continue colonization and looting. In Central Africa President Bozizé had tried to rebel, France has destroyed the Central African Republic since it is the war with our Central African Brothers.

Understand why since 2009 Cameroon, which had always lived in peace, already has several security problems Boko Haram, the crisis of Ambazonia and consort that France uses to destabilize our country. Paul Biya is the father of our nation. Whether you like it or not. And it is he who will choose the one who will have to continue his work so that France does not infiltrate us with cases, spies like Kamto, Alassane Ouattara of Cameroon.

Paul Biya Ayop Ayop Ayop.

Our grandfather is a hot guy for life. He told us that Cameroon is an agricultural and livestock country. My brothers and sisters are going to work the fields and raise livestock. The work of the land pays. Let's start in entrepreneurship. It is there that there is money. Not everyone is going to work in the department or the office.Even in France everyone does not work in the office it is the private sector that most jobs among whites.

Our country is a young country that has 60 years of existence, and it's only been 10 years since we were truly independent. Do not follow marabout wizards like Kamto who has already finished eating money from ministries, now just the same wants to hear that he is president he went to sell our country to French. Cameroon offers us opportunities to seize them.
