There is nothing wrong with Cameroon that cannot be cured with what is right in Cameroon. Things are falling apart and age is telling on the men and women running the CPDM crime syndicate. Every factor that indicates the collapse of a regime has signaled in Cameroon. Yet the nation has no one to take responsibility and free the Cameroonian people. It is a nation that things have turned upside down and inside out, and the only morality that prevails is that of evil over goodness. Cameroon might fall into the wrong hands-and this is what President Biya and his family wants.
Cameroon has the most irresponsible executive, the most vicious and most corrupt judiciary, the most inefficient national assembly, the most useless press, the most disorganized and idiotic opposition in the African continent. Above all, a diaspora that is tactless and reckless in all its endeavours. There reason is simple we do not have men who are committed to nation building. Cameroonian politics is simply cults, money and women. This is true of the government and the opposition. Isn't really ill-luck to have Roman Catholics and Protestant Christians in power since 1982? Has Christianity actually failed in Cameroon? Do we still have genuine Muslims in the country? What is the role of the press. the traditional authorities, the Bishops Conference, the Synod,the army and the elites? What is really the matter?
Is it possible that for the last two decades, Fru Ndi, Ndam Njoya, Justice Ayah, Bello Bouba Maigari and Gaga Haman Adji have failed to come together for the interest of the Cameroonian people? From advance democracy, Cameroon is slowly but surely going back to the UPC years of terrorism. Candidates selection in all the 150 plus political parties is no longer by democratic primaries but by consensus. A pattern that was born in Cameroon when President Paul Biya chairman of the ruling CPDM crime syndicate decided unilaterally that party's candidates for municipal and parliamentary elections would be chosen by consensus. The Cameroonian elite applauded and even lectured the common man on the streets that our forefathers operated on the policy of "consensus" and had peace in abundance. Some pro Fru Ndi comedians noted that the idea of consensus is smart and evoke peace and harmony and even blamed the internal division in the SDF to the primaries that were held during the 1997 parliamentary elections.
So, no one not Sultan Mbombo Njoya, not Peter Mafany Musonge, not Issa Chiruma, not Fru Ndi, not Joseph Owona not even Biya and Yang Philemon can think that by denying militants their fundamental right and inalienable aspiration to compete and win in a free and fair election holds dangerous consequences for generations to come in Cameroon. Where is the logic and common sense displayed by the founding fathers when they noted that in any elections those who win are glad that they were freely chosen in a fair competition. Those who lost equally accept in spite of their pain at losing, that they lost in a fair game. Those who voted for the winning or losing candidates also enjoy having exercised a right to vote and determine the ballot.
Elections in any country run by genuine intellectuals and politicians are widely believed to be a process that leads to the fulfillment of the deep-seated and natural longing within every human being (the political animal) to make a contribution to the process that determines who controls the power by which he is ruled. Scrimmages,bickering and disappointment are only temporary. The fulfillment deriving from an electoral process is so enduring that it can only lead to reinforced loyalty in the long run to the nation. This is very great and irreplaceable value that the wiseacres of the ruling CPDM crime syndicate and their opposition acolytes have denied the Cameroon people.
Everybody knows how very hard it has been for the Biya regime to share power even though it preaches democracy everyday. Change in Cameroon can only come from within the CPDM and progressive Beti-Ewondo elites who should be looking at the bigger picture. CPDM militants should openly reject President Biya as chairman of the party and clamour for a political process geared towards getting a new head of state for the country. In this rebellion, the highly placed militants should rally behind men of exceptional standing and moral rectitude such as Jean Atangana Mebara who is perfectly bilingual and had made known his vision for the country.
