A recent portrait of Paul Atanga Nji by Jeune Afrique has raised much dust in Cameroon and beyond.
Jeune Afrique took so much energy and space just to praise Minister Atanga Nji whose reputation has been soiled severely of late.
Jeune Afrique does not mention Atanga's stay at New Bell Prison.
No mention is made of his arrest ordered by CONAC, the body fighting corruption in Cameroon.
Jeune Afrique turns a blind eye on the fact that Atanga Nji would be in prison today in relation to an issue involving Campost if Cameroon were a serious nation.
For Jeune Afrique to claim that it was Atanga Nji at the forefront against SDF in the 90s without mentioning Francoise Foning and Gregoire Owona is really a pity.
To present a portrait of Atanga Nji without making reference to the trouble in which he is with his own people in Southern Cameroons is no serious business at all. In fact, Mr Atanga fell out with his hometown when he declared that there was no Anglophone problem in Cameroon last year .
Some pundits are even quick to suggest that Atanga Nji has paid Jeune Afrique to polish his bruised image , especially after reports that he contributed to Biya's humiliation in New York.
