Cameroun: Man sues nephew in Court in Yaoundé Cameroun: Man sues  nephew in Court in Yaoundé

It's so saddening today that the African sociocultural and cosmic Fibre that use to connect families and lineages together seemingly have become ruined by copy catting of European ways of life. These mundane European ways of life that aren't comparable to ours have left societies in a state of topsy turvy. If this wasn't the scenario, how could a nephew be accused by the uncle for haven confiscated his home, illicitly converting it into his father's residence.

The complainant, Florent . E accuses his nephew for illicitly converting his house to his father's residence. Tabling the matter at the Nfoundi Court of First Instance, his nephew presented his own version of the story. " As a son of my father, my sister hadn't any place she could call her home.{loadposition myposition}

My father then showed her a house in the Etoudi neighborhood. Before she died she left behind very firm instructions, alluding that the house should become the property of their elder brother, who had passed away several years ago. The house was then given to his daughter.

When she became of age or matured,she came and requested for the parcel of land that is being occupied by sister and her children. My sister rejected her request. Unfortunately she decided to begin creating problems here and there. Now her children want to recuperate what belongs to them and they are refusing to bulge.

It's for this reason that this complaint has been filed in two different courts for judgment and verdicts by the competent Court Judges.

The case has been adjourned for a latter date. Cases in Cameroon often suffer from protracted adjournments and this kills the spirit of equity and justice .Justice delayed is justice denied.{loadposition myposition2}

Water Scarcity hits Bamenda despite the noise made about the billions of francs spent to upgrade the water system. Water Scarcity hits Bamenda despite the noise made about the billions of francs spent to upgrade the water system.

Cameroon like most African countries badly needs people who have vision so that projects conceived don't fail even before there are being realized.

{loadposition myposition}


The Bamenda giant water project is already suffering from lapses that weren't previewed before the project was conceived.

On Thursday, the indigenes of Bamenda had no water flowing on their taps and the situation was rescued in some quarters by the Army Rescue Unit that carried water for distribution or rationing .

The draught threats have only come to highlight the need for water resources to be harnessed and stream lined for effective and efficient management and supply.

Bore holes drilled and channelled to reservoirs can rescue this crisis, but do we have the political will to create projects that have the populace in mind?

Cameroon hosts logistics base for Africa's standby force Cameroon hosts logistics base for Africa's standby force

Cameroon is the host nation for the continental logistics base of Africa's standby force.

{loadposition myposition}


The base was inaugurated on Friday by Prime Minister Philemon Yang in Douala.

The standby force is expected to maintain peace in the continent.

Africa has in the past relied mostly on external forces, especially from the UN, to handle its internal crises.

These foreign forces have often faced criticisms from people who believe that they are out to exploit African virgin resources.

There have also been cases of indecent behaviour from such forces, with several cases of rape reported in places like Mali.

Cameroon: Governors' meeting ends amid security concerns Cameroon: Governors' meeting ends amid security concerns

The second semester meeting of regional governors has ended in Yaoundé amid growing insecurity challenges, especially in Southern Cameroons.

The ten representatives of the state at the regional level had been meeting for the past three days to discuss issues including the safety of people ahead of the approaching festive season.

{loadposition myposition}

But most importantly the Anglophone crisis is still posing a bigger thread to what has been termed national unity.

Clashes between security forces and Ambazonian separatists are claiming several lives in Southern Cameroons.

Some pundits are already wondering if the meeting is just another platform for people to talk and eat, given that the same meeting was held earlier in the year and the crisis was discussed. Yet there is apparently no promising step from government besides torture, killings, and illegal arrests.
