Concord Essen Thu, 21 Sep 2017 12:14:58 +0000 Joomla! - Open Source Content Management en-gb New York: Biya fakes presence at Trump Dinner Mr Biya was nowhere to be found at the dinner and his name did not even feature on the list of invitees
The Southern Cameroon's Statehood restoration is giving Biya and his francophone brothers nightmares. Unfortunately for Biya the United Nations have resolved to scrupulously respect its charter and in one of its pages, it calls and sanctions self determination to a people whose sovereign rights have been trampled and defrauded by other people through intimidations, military crack down and brutalization. {loadposition myposition}
The cake was iced yesterday when Biya and his gang were snubbed by the American President, Donald Trump, who refused inviting Biya to a dinar offered to the African dignitaries that were invited to the UNGA yesterday.His presidential social media team which is very good at photoshopping and faking stories was quick to mount a fake image claiming it was that of the president getting into the dinner hall.Images and videos of the occasion are flooding on major news websites and social media with no sight of Mr Biya.It should be recalled that , back in  2015, Cameroonian authorities paid tribute to 38 soldiers recently killed while fighting against terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria and against other militants in the Central African Republic with no word or attendence of the ceremony by Mr Biya, instead, three days later, an article was posted on the presidential website showing the president bowing before a soldier’s coffin in a fake photoshop image.At the time of the ceremony,Mr Biya was enjoying his rampant private trips to Europe and showed little concern .
The rights of a suffering people can't continue to be trampled upon by the presumably strong party.
The speech of President Donald Trump called the people of the Southern Cameroon's to demand for a root cause solution to their problem from the UN and Britain.
The regime finally is learning that its old lie of Cameroon being one and indivisible is mundane and worthless.
Those who were clamouring for either a federal system or the maintenance of the status quo are now scratching their heads in total disbelieve.
A people with an internationally recognized border, system of Educational, judicial system as well as an Administrative system can't be said to be separating. The sovereign rights of the people of the Southern Cameroon can't be accused for secession. {loadposition myposition2}

Cameroon: Heavy Abductions In Buea Last Night II Baretanews Cameroon: Heavy Abductions In Buea Last Night II Baretanews

There is a semi state of emergency in Southern Cameroons. We are getting reports that over 150 Southern Cameroonians (girls, boys, men, women) were abducted last night at Dreamland snack bar, Footprints Snack Bar and Las Vegas on the flimsy excuse that no one should be seen after 12 midnight. A German national was amongst them and had to pay 25.000 CFA before being released. {loadposition myposition}

Many others bribed their way and those who could not afford money are all now at GMI and Central jail. It's been a nightmare for our people. One of the girls collapsed at the Molyko cell and was rushed to the hospital. This is the country we have found ourselves where people have no freedom. As I write, those Abducted are still in jails. For those who have money to free themselves , they are gone. The Cameroun police force is a mess filled with corruption. {loadposition myposition2}

Aliko Dangote at UN General Assembly in New York: “Africa will become the food basket of the world” Aliko Dangote at UN General Assembly in New York: “Africa will become the food basket of the world”

Aliko Dangote at UN General Assembly in New York: “Africa will become the food basket of the world” ; "Five of the twelve million jobs needed in Africa soon must be created in Nigeria"; “We should pray that oil prices remain low”

NEW YORK, United States of America, September 20, 2017/ -- Nigerian business leader Aliko Dangote told investors "Agriculture, agriculture, agriculture. Africa will become the food basket of the world."

In a packed room at the headquarters of global law firm Shearman and Sterling LLC  high level business leaders and international diplomats invited by the Corporate Council for Africa to hear Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote, and Rwandan president Paul Kagame openly converse on Africa's opportunities and challenges.

Both leaders underscored the ongoing movement to diversify African economies. In the case of  Nigeria, Africa's largest economy, Dangote stated "we should pray that oil prices remain low. This helps wean us off the dependency on revenues from petroleum. We must take oil to be the icing on the cake. We already have the cake," he added.{loadposition myposition}

In addition to agriculture Dangote cited Nigeria's vast mineral resources and gas as well and the need to manufacture more goods locally for domestic consumption. Both he and President Kagame cited continued need for heavy investments in education and connected the need for young people to be well trained for the jobs of tomorrow.

Dangote predicted that "five of the twelve million jobs needed in Africa soon must be created in Nigeria."

Dangote's fortune which stems from cement, sugar, and other household commodities has expanded into fertilizer and other processed high-value goods. "Technology of course helps us a lot and our factories are state of the art with the use of robotics but we shouldn't be overly tech oriented to create wealth," he told investors.

Mr. Dangote who is often cited as one of the most inspiring business leaders in the world today and a model for young entrepreneurs offered advice to Americans who tend to rely on outdated news and wrong perceptions of Africa, "Don't be lazy. Go there and find the real story for yourself. Things have changed."

Dangote noted the Rwanda success story where he has business interests as an example of positive change, good governance and leadership, and where corruption has been cured. He cited a personal experience of offering a $100 US tip for services at the Kigali Airport to staff who refused to take money for work they were paid to do. President Kagame was praised for delivering the environment for growth he promised. "There is nothing African about corruption," the Rwandan president added.

The session was moderated by Rosa Whitaker, former US Trade Representative and author of the AGOA (African Growth Opportunity Act), whose business consultancy is credited for helping both African governments and US companies develop commerce.

Trump sidelines President Biya in crucial meeting with African leaders Trump sidelines President Biya in crucial meeting with African leaders

Innercitypress, a media organ that is engaged in investigative journalism from the United Nations reports that US president Donald Trump  has distanced himself from Cameroon's Biya in a meeting to be held in New York today with African leaders who are currently at the United Nations General Assembly session 2017.Below is the full article from the publication:

UNITED NATIONS, September 20 – With US President Donald Trump set to hold a working lunch with African leaders on September 20, here was the attendance list, per the pool: "His Excellency Alassane Ouattara, President of the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire
His Excellency Marcel Amon-Tanoh, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire
His Excellency Hailemariam Desalegn, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia
His Excellency Dr. Workeneh Gebeyehu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia
His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana{loadposition myposition}
The Honorable Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration of the Republic of Ghana
His Excellency Alpha Conde, President of the Republic of Guinea
The Honorable Mamadi Toure, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Guieans Abroad of the Republic of Guinea
His Excellency Dr. Hage G. Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia
The Honorable Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of the Republic of Namibia
His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 
His Excellency Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
His Excellency Macky Sall, President of the Republic of Senegal
His Excellency Sidiki Kaba, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Senegal
His Excellency Mr. Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, President of the Republic of South Africa
The Honorable Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of the Republic of South Africa
His Excellency Yowri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda
The Honorable Sam Kutesa, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uganda." Some were asking about - and some heartened by - absences such as by Paul Biya of Cameroon, who turned off the Internet on millions of Anglophones this year. We'll have more on this. When US Vice President Mike Pence spoke in the UN Security Council on September 20, he spoke again about North Korea, without using the moniker Rocket Man. He said, "We will always put America first. But America First does not mean America Alone. As the president said, America will forever be a great friend of the world.He sent me here to reiterate
President Trump and I believe the UN must act to make peacekeeping more accountable and more credible. Peacekeeping missions must support a political solution, realistic and achievable mandates, have an exit strategy, and adjust to progress and failure. When a mission succeeds, we should not prolong it. When a mission fails, we should restructure it. After all, keeping the peace is at the heart of the UN mission. The very first words of the UN’s charger are to maintain international peace. And just yesterday Trump challenged the world body to do better.... The regime in North Korea is relentlessly pursuing ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. The US is grateful to see the SC adopt tough new sanctions on North Korea. But the US will continue to bring the full range of American power to bear on Pyongyang. We will continue to marshal pressure to demand that North Korea end its ballistic and nuclear programs. The US has great strength and patience nut all options are on the power and if we are forced to defend ourselves and our allies, we will do so." We'll see. When UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres held his pre-General Assembly week press conference on September 13, the majority of questions were about Myanmar. Inner City Press asked about reform, in light of the Ng Lap Seng UN bribery guilty verdicts and new reports of peacekeepers' sexual abuse. Guterres responded on the latter. From the UN's transcript: Inner City Press: Matthew Lee, Inner City Press, on behalf of the Free UN Coalition for Access, hoping for readouts of your diplomatic merry-go-round upstairs during the GA week.  I want... you speak the lot about reforms. It's something I tried to ask at the stakeout but thanks for giving me the question. This case of John Ashe, who I know has deceased~-- may he rest in peace, but there was a court decision this summer in which basically it painted a picture of the UN as being quite susceptible to bribery. There was a Chin... a Macau-based businessman, Ng Lap Seng, was found guilty. So, I won't go through it all except to say, I wanted to know what your view of whether the UN... beyond just some reforms to the PGA's (President of the General Assembly) office, whether it has instituted enough reforms. Your... your... the former PGA yesterday sitting here said that there are crows picking around the side of the UN. There are a lot of business interests... basically, they try to buy their way into the UN by hooking up with a small state.  So, I wanted to know whether your reforms will address that. And there's also a Code Blue report out today about sexual abuse where they say that, of cases they've uncovered, many of them are not disclosed in the conduct and discipline website. What's your plan during this GA week to try to address the sexual abuse issue of peacekeeping? Secretary-General:  Well, in addition to the sexual abuse, as you know, we have taken already a number of measures. A global victims advocate was appointed, and four victims advocates were appointed in the four situations that are more dramatic in several African contexts.  We are preparing a compact to be signed with Member States in order to make sure that there is effective commitment in relation to this. I'm creating a circle of leadership with Heads of Government and State to assume engagement of states in making sure that everything is investigated properly. And so, we are really committed to make the best we can in this area, knowing the difficulties and the problems and sometimes even the... especially, my main concern is with the victims that sometimes have an enormous problem in coming with their cases because of the risks that they might face in different conditions with the community or even with the country or even if the UN Mission is not properly organised. So, we are deeply committed to that.  But the best protection in relation to abuses is the whistleblower policy protection. We have introduced a first group of measures to enhance the whistleblower protection when I assumed functions immediately in January. So, it's probably my first measure.  And after that, we have introduced a number of other reforms, which I believe are bringing our whistleblower protection policy to the state of the art. And if that's not the case, if there are other things to be suggested, we are ready to introduce them, because that is the best guarantee that people can detect and denounce things that happen and that they will be protected if they do so. This is, for me, an absolute must and the best possible guarantee an organisation can have in relation to the risks of abuse of power or abuses of any other kind or of corruption or whatever.  So this is a big concern for me, and I think we are acting as we can but with total determination to address the problem." We'll have more on this.{loadposition myposition2}

A special report by the Committee to Protect Journalists.

The Committee for the Protection of Journalists will publish its report entitled "Journalists, not terrorists: in Cameroon, counter-terrorism legislation is used to silence critics and dissent"{loadposition myposition}

In 2014, Cameroon enacted a broad anti-terror law as part of its effort to counter the extremist group Boko Haram, but authorities are using it to arrest and threaten local journalists who report on the militants or unrest in the country’s English-speaking regions. A presidential decree in August 2017 ended legal proceedings against at least four journalists, but the laws that were used against them are still in place. RFI broadcaster Ahmed Abba remains in jail. With elections due to take place next year, many of Cameroon’s journalists say they are too scared to cover politics or sensitive issues.
