 The Cameroonian military saturated with Beti and Bulu elements whose academic credentials are empty, couldn't have done otherwise.

This was a gross violation of international law and threatens the cordial relationship that Nigeria and Cameroon has. The Nigerian military was placed on a red alert to preempt the illicit incursions into Nigeria by the Cameroonian scouts with junk heads. Assuming that they were persuading the separatist fighters who had attacked them on open and broad day light operation.{loadposition myposition} 

The close to 80 Gendarmes and BIR that had attempted crossing into Nigeria were pushed back in humiliation and disgrace. The Gendarmes that that because the Interim president and his collaborators were illegally kidnapped in Nigeria through the auspicious crooked dealings of Buhari, they could move into Nigeria at will. Little did they know that all that transpired were acts of illegally and today these acts of folly have terribly haunted the image of Nigeria and Cameroon.{loadposition myposition2}

Bamenda: SDF convention kick-starts in blanket mood http://cameroon-concord.com/politics/bamenda-sdf-convention-kick-starts-in-blanket-mood http://cameroon-concord.com/politics/bamenda-sdf-convention-kick-starts-in-blanket-mood Bamenda: SDF convention kick-starts in blanket mood

All the fanfare and the so much trumpeted Convention is now so low keyed and is shockingly shut down by the ghost towns. John Fru Ndi seeing stars in Bamenda after being refused convention halls by the Catholic and Presbyterian Churches, had to relocate to the Congress Hall. The new venue of the Convention being the Congress Hall was announced by Jean Robert Wafo, the Shadow Minister of Communication.{loadposition myposition}  John Fru Ndi today is bleeding blood because he isn't believing his own eyes of what he is seeing. Whether the Social Democratic Front holds this convention or not, one thing remains clear that John Fru Ndi buried the Social Democratic Front in Bamenda on the 22nd of February 2018. The elective convention is aimed at electing a new executive for the Social Democratic Front and those postulating to become the Presidential flag bearers are Joshua Osih, Joseph Mbah Ndam and Fobi Simon Nchinda.{loadposition myposition2}

Biya signs decree creating new military region in Southern Cameroons http://cameroon-concord.com/politics/biya-signs-decree-creating-new-military-region-in-southern-cameroons http://cameroon-concord.com/politics/biya-signs-decree-creating-new-military-region-in-southern-cameroons Biya signs decree creating new military region in Southern Cameroons

Cameroon has a new military region created to cater for security needs in the west and northwest region, the state-owned CRTV has reported.

President Paul Biya signed directives reorganizing the country’s defense forces leading to the splitting into two of the former military region [Région militaire interarmées – RMIARMIA 2 which is based in Douala.

The new region becomes the fifth (RMIA 5) and is headquarted in capital of the northwest region Bamenda.{loadposition myposition}  It is to be headed by General Agha Robinson Ndong while General Julius Caesar Ellie has been appointed commander of its Gendarmerie region (RG5).

The measure is seen as a clear plan to deal with the raging Anglophone crisis that has rocked the country since October 2017. Separatists in the region continue to engage in deadly clashes with security forces.

Under the banner of the so-called Ambazonia republic, separatists are pushing a breakaway of the Anglophone regions (northwest and southwest) from French-majority Cameroon.

The government has insisted that the region remains secured and has declared the separatists terrorists. Last month, Nigeria deported about 47 separatists to Yaounde, the deportees included a known separatist leader, Julius Sisuku Ayuk Tabe.

Nigeria has also been bearing the brunt of the crisis in Cameroon with the continuing influx of refugees. The United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, has reported that thousands of people have arrived in Nigeria over the past few months.

Major change: Military Region 2 is split into two. It gives birth to the military region No. 5 whose command post is in Bamenda.

Also, the army changes in the Generals:

RMIA 2 Douala : Saly Mohamadou

RMIA 5 Bamenda : Agha Robinson Ndong

12e BRIM Bertoua : Joseph Nouma.

RG 2 Douala : Toungue Elias.

RG 4 Maroua: Louba Zal Pierre.

RG 5 Bamenda : Essoh Jules Cesar.

DG Eiforces : Bitote André Patrice.

The above changes comes after more than 210 soldiers were killed this week by well-armed Ambazonia soldiers in Ambazonia. Biya's terrorists are disoriented and weakened by the Ambazonia soldiers and some Generals in Biya's army opted to resign from Ambazonia, arguing that they are ill-equipped to face our soldiers.

La Republique current has 64 army Generals. Ambazonia has only 1.

Cameroon: Biya signs presidential decree to reorganize Cameroon Water Utilities (CAMWATER) http://cameroon-concord.com/business/cameroon-biya-signs-presidential-decree-to-reorganize-cameroon-water-utilities-camwater http://cameroon-concord.com/business/cameroon-biya-signs-presidential-decree-to-reorganize-cameroon-water-utilities-camwater Cameroon: Biya signs presidential decree to reorganize Cameroon Water Utilities (CAMWATER)

On February 20, 2018, Paul Biya officially ended the privatization of water production and distribution in Cameroon. That day, a presidential decree was signed to reorganize Cameroon Water Utilities (CAMWATER) which was till then in charge of drinking water management.  The company is now in charge of the production and distribution in urban and semi-urban areas.{loadposition myposition} 

Indeed, for ten years now, Camerounaise des eaux (CDE), a private consortium of ONEP, MEDZ, DELTA Holding and INGEMA, has been in charge of the production and distribution. After these years of privatization, the result was not that bright (the water service interruptions have been more frequent in Yaoundé in the past few months). The government then decided to end the privatization and return the water sector to a public company as had been the case for decades.

For the record, water production and distribution service was taken care of by Société Nationale des eaux du Cameroun (Snec), before it was privatized in the 2000s.

Cameroon: Biya's Geneva and trips amount at 90 billion FCFA to the Cameroonian taxpayer so far http://cameroon-concord.com/politics/cameroon-biya-s-geneva-and-trips-amount-at-90-billion-fcfa-to-the-cameroonian-taxpayer-so-far http://cameroon-concord.com/politics/cameroon-biya-s-geneva-and-trips-amount-at-90-billion-fcfa-to-the-cameroonian-taxpayer-so-far Cameroon: Biya's Geneva and trips amount at  90 billion FCFA to the Cameroonian taxpayer so far

The President of the Republic of Cameroon has been aptly described as the absentee Land Lord. This is because he spends a greater chunk of his days out of Cameroon and in Switzerland in particular or sometimes in France. However his excessive bills spent in the Continental Hotel have drawn international condemnation and a lot of people can't understand how a relatively poor Country like Cameroon can allow such extravagant expenditure of the President of the Country?

Spending a walloping some of 65 million dollars( 32.5 billion Francs CFA) This walloping sum does not include what is kept monthly in the black account that carters for the payment of air tickets,chartering of planes and advertisements. This picture is negatively presented by an International Association of investigative Journalist, abbreviated using a French acronym OCCRP.{loadposition myposition} 

It's assumed that 855000$ was wasted to foot the bills of 50 passengers in a round ticket from Yaoundé to Geneva. Other expenses that were incurred by Paul Biya and his ballooned entourage of fifty persons include 117million Dollars. This body of investigative Journalist tagged in English as " Organized Crime and Corruption reporting project" has revealed how Paul Biya and his wife Chantal Biya waste state resources in private trips abroad, excluding the official trips.

In 2009 Paul Biya passed almost the whole year out of the Country in the Swiss Continental Hotel, often occupying the last four floors at the expense of the state of Cameroon that can't tar her roads, build bridges, state of the art hospitals as well as make life affordable as well as comfortable to the citizens. Whenever he is out or is coming back nothing even bothers him.

The train Accident that saw the death of 79 persons in Eseka including pastors and other Clergy or the ugly confrontation of the state Police, Gendarmes as well as Soldiers on the 22 of September and 1st of October 2017,reveals an unrealistic President completely cut off from the reality on the ground or an Elitist President.{loadposition myposition2}
