In Cameroon, the most recent arrestations orchestrated by the forces of Lawlessness and disorder within the ranks of embittered teachers has infuriated the opposition " There is a very large proportion of infuriated persons amongst the intended Presidential candidates of the forth coming Presidential elections that tentatively shall hold either on the 14 of September or the 14th of October 2018.
If Akere Muna presented by his militants as a serious alternative to President Paul Biya, who was the first candidate to postulate as a Presidential Candidate for 2018, has overwhelmingly condemned the arrestation of the teachers who are only asking for their rights. "According to Muna ,the arrestation of these teachers doing, revindication for their rights, demonstrates that the government hasn't learnt any lessons from the Anglophone crisis" "Using the strong primitive repressive hand to resolve a crisis invokes radicalism and the consequences are calamitous" After the declaration of Akere Muna then came those of Serge Espoir Matomba of Puts, Joshua Osih of the Social Democratic Front and Maurice Kamto who unanimously and unequivocally condemned the arrestation of the teachers as instructed by the brutish Minister of Justice and Keeper of the Seal and the Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization.
It's worth recalling that in the morning of the 27th of February, 2018, a group of teachers, members of a teachers Trade union made up of the newly recruited teachers of Cameroon, abbreviated ( NCEIC) had staged a public manifestation in Yaoundé. This manifestation was peaceful and was at the esplanade of the Ministry of Finance. These teachers were protesting against a protracted accumulation of their arrears and the non payment of their allowances as well as the non respect of the teachers status dating over 20 years. After the demonstration, 56 teachers were arrested, that is 49 male teachers and 7 female teachers.
Electricity theft is a common practice is well established or accustomed in Cameroon. As we can see from the image taken from a garage in Yaoundé. This garage is situated in the 1st District of Yaoundé. Located precisely in the Olembe Quarter that has operated for years without the proprietor paying a single bill and does not have a legal meter.
