Buea Diocese is indeed in tears following the death of Rev. Father Denis Ndang, former Chancellor of the Buea Diocese and Parish Priest of Manbanda. The late Rev. Father Denis Ndang went home to rest last Wednesday 15th of April at the Mt. Mary Hospital in Buea after a protracted illness. Cameroon Concord’s cream of reporters answered present during the vigil masses and of course the requiem mass celebrated in loving memory of Father Denis Ndang. It was indeed shameful, disgusting and disgraceful to be there as a Roman Catholic Christian. We of this publication can now reveal to the world and to the Holy Father, Pope Francis that the Rt. Rev. Bishop Immanuel Banlanjo Bushu is heading a sinful church.
The disorder and darkness that characterized the vigil masses painted a vivid picture of the division and alacrity that currently prevails in the Buea Diocese. All the 143 photos that our camera men took during the vigil masses came out blurred. There was no organization, no traffic control, no proper lighting system; no priest took responsibility, no proper co-ordination, to be sure, no nothing. It was evident, the late Rev. Father Denis Ndang was a fly in an oilmen. Our cream of reporters led by our Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, participated in three of the numerous vigil masses and we can proudly tell the world that the Buea Diocese was only interested in making money judging from the manner in which Christians were constantly reminded to offer mass intention for the late Rev. Father Denis Ndang.
What is the difference between Buea Diocese under the late Bishop Pius Suh Awa and Bishop Bushu? It has not defined itself in relation to the Holy Trinity and the mystery of faith. There is a complete and total absence of leadership and the Christian faith and these could lead to a catastrophic collapse of the Roman Catholic Church in the South West region. Nobody, not even the clergy in the Buea Diocese has learned to be tolerant yet. So, during the requiem mass in loving memory of the late Rev. Father Denis Ndang, the Vicar of the Buea Diocese told mourners, the Bishop House was not aware that over a period of four years, Father Denis Ndang had been seriously ill. According to the Vicar, the Bishop House was also NOT aware that the late Father Denis Ndang had been moved to Mutenegene-where his family struggled to foot his medical bills.
During a private forum prior to the vigil orchestrated by some concerned Christians who paid a courtesy call at the Bishop’s House to expressed their condolence to Bishop Bushu, His Lordship recounted how he made so many attempts at getting to the late Father Denis Ndang to report to Buea and received treatment. Our intelligence officers could easily establish that the Vicar is saying one thing and the Bishop is saying another. You will find a truth only when you are looking for it. Such an artificial quest for the truth from the Bishop House is doomed to fail. The Homily delivered during the requiem mass will live in infamy. The Vicar left the subject of death and spoke lengthily on the fact that some Christians do not dress properly to attend Holy Masses!! A frustrated Bishop Bushu had to intervene regularly to prevent the homily from going out of topic.
Cameroon Concord believes that there is only hierarchical power in the Buea Diocese and the absence of any real teaching or any religious culture. With too many Roman Catholic Christians in the Buea Diocese only interested in their jobs and personal gains at the Catholic University in Buea, it will take time for Bishop Bushu and his henchman Rev. Father George Nkeze to realise that the Buea Diocese is slowly but surely losing its spiritual authority over its parishioners. The Buea Diocese needs a new idea!! Not that of publishing books attacking other clergies who helped to make Buea Diocese what it is today, but a new idea that should evolve to express the realities and the teachings of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. It wouldn’t be wrong to assert that Bishop Bushu needs a decent religious pragmatic adjustments-not the one that decrees transfer of priests every three months.
