Atangana Kouna stopped net from jumping out of Cameroon for fear of the unknown, mostly believed to be Kondengui central Prison for his embezzlement charges Corruption and total abuse of Finances by Ministers in Cameroon are always that giant trap that catches up with them as nemesis. If Atangana Kouna was told that someday moving out this carelessly drawn triangle, called Cameroon was going to be a near impossibility, he won't have admitted even in his wildest dream.
Today Atangana Kouna was stopped from boarding a plane destined for France. It's saddening that most African Ministers are empty headed and so callous minded, so much so that they fail to understand that they are mere servants, called to serve the state in their various ministerial portfolio.
The case of Cameroon is so pathetic and regretting because most Ministers aren't audited by an external auditing firm so as to ascertain how much was granted as the budget and how much wasn't dispensed for use as credits? Struggling to smuggle himself out using the Turkish Airlines this morning.
It's certainly as a result of the development in the residence of his friend, brother and former minister like him, Mebe Ngo'o that had been placed on super surveillance, that he thought of jumping the boat of turbulent waves and troubled waters. Atangana Kouna has now been placed in a house arrest and prohibited from receiving well wishers in his residence. The entire frontier post and Police have been firmly instructed by the head of state through the Inspector General of National Security to stop these excessively illegal enriched moguls.
The concern were in custody at the Gendarmerie in Mundemba for questioning after an attack on the Brigade that took place on the 27th of February, 2018. These two presumed restoration forces were extra judiciary murdered on Sunday, a gross violation of human right. They are amongst some armed gang that has given trouble in Mundemba.
They were arrested after a very heavy gun battle erupted when they were attending the wedding ceremony of a soldier. It was during these fierce gun battle that these two presumed restoration forces were arrested with cutlasses, hunting guns and amulets. Those invited to the wedding ceremony had returned home,the two presumed restoration soldiers were then taken to the brigade and were extra judiciary murdered by the primitive and vampiric thugs had of LA Republique Du Cameroun.
Another presumed restoration soldier was arrested on Sunday with a huge stock of tramol that he was supposed to distribute. LA Republique Du Cameroun has trained her scouts in lies telling and fabrication of false exibites, so it's so difficult to believe anything presented by LA Republique Du Cameroun.
The President of Ambazonia was kidnapped in Nigeria breaching international protocol in Nigeria before being illicitly taken to Cameroon. This illegal transaction between Buhari and Biya void of any legal justification based by an extradition convention has placed Nigeria in hell. Her battered image has been made worse since Buhari chose the part of evil, sheepishly assuming that the case of Southern Cameroon's was just like that of the Biafra's in Nigeria.
Unfortunately for him, this isn't the case and Nigeria and Nigerians are sweating under this heat that has ruined the few chances that APC had in the forth coming Presidential and other elections in Nigeria. Diplomatically Buhari's folly has damaged Nigeria's image as the giant of Africa. Since their purported arrival in Cameroon as announced by the minister of Communication, nobody knows their whereabouts and lots of speculations have been made. Some persons had assumed that they had been killed, others assumed that they weren't even brought to Cameroon in the first place.
Sixty days incommunicado and without any information filtering out is cruel and inhumane. Illegally kidnapped to Cameroon on the 26th of January, national and foreign media had announced that thirty seven others were arrested in Abuja had been illegally incarcerated at the Secretary of Defence ( SED) There is nothing to this date to proof that they had been detained there. The other source of information that was given by Spokesman of the Cameroonian military, Colonel Didier Bandjeck, the mulatto claims that Ayuk Tabe and his close collaborators had been handed over to the Judicial Police for investigations to be conducted.
According to this arrogant and nauseating Mulatto, Colonel Didier Bandjeck,it's judged not to be necessary to divulge where they are detained. " I don't have the right to talk with somebody in custody , address all your supplications to the Attorney General of the Republic. All over the world, such instructions are sacred and the opportunities to speak are restricted by the Attorney General of the Republic" declared Colonel Didier Bandjeck, in charge of Military communication.
This case is giving Nigeria, the UN and LA Republique Du Cameroun sleepless nights as another wave of massive demonstrations have erupted against the Nigerian embassies, the seat of the UN and against Britain. This wave of massive demonstrations are planned to humiliate an already disgraced cow driver, Buhari Muhammadu and his vampire friend, Paul Biya of Cameroon.
Lawyers Ben Muna and Agbor Balla have complained about the lack of collaboration between the lawyers and Police elements that doesn't permit them to meet with Ayuk Tabe and his close collaborators. The wife of Ayuk Tabe, the leader of the restoration movement of the Southern Cameroon's has equally shown her frustration seeing or meeting with her husband as well as his release..
" In a missive widely circulated on the media, she categorically states that her husband isn't a terrorist but a humanist who saw the misery and frustration of Southern Cameroonians, illegally panel beaten by francophones and treated as slaves in their own land" She equally requested that the vicious regime of LA Republique Du Cameroun should show a video of her husband and his collaborators to attest that they are still alive.
The unfortunate victim got missing after the very fierce battle that took place on the 27th of February, 2018 at Ikassa that saw the death of three restoration forces. The corpse of the gendarme was recovered on Friday, the 2nd of March,2018, not far off the locality of Mundemba, Ndian division of the South West Region.
The sub officer of the Gendarmerie was presumably killed by the restoration forces before dumping his corpse into the steam. According to media reports, there was a bloody confrontation between the restoration forces and scouts of LA Republique Du Cameroun in Ikassa. Two Gendarmes were missing since the 27th of February following an attack on the Marine by close to fifty restoration forces.
Gendarmes were therefore deplored in Mundemba. It was after this incident that these two Gendarmes got missing. Three presumed restoration forces were killed on that fateful day.
The allies of the Cameroon Peoples Democratic Movement have rallied towards the upcoming Elections. Six members of Government under the auspices of the Minister of Communication, who are not members of the CPDM are involved. According to Mutation daily of the 5th of March 2018, the President of the Republic, following the cabinet rebrand, has reassured all the allies of the CPDM that the nation is on a good footing. According to our correspondent, the head of state has allowed election issues in the hands of the six ministries of allied Political parties.
They are in charge of the upcoming elections. The closest election that is on schedule is the senatorial election, previewed for the 25th of March, 2018. It's worth noting that on the 7th of February, 2018, the President of Republic signed a decree summoning the electoral college. Granted on this day and after Election Cameroon, ( ELECAM),the body that has been empowered to register, conduct and proclaim the results of Elections in Cameroon. Only nine political parties have indicated their willingness to participate in the Senatorial election that has on offer of 70 senatorial seats.
Coming back to the most recent appointments and cabinet reshuffle, it can be noted that Bello Bouba Maigari, the minister of Tourism and Leisure( MINTOUL) president of the National Union for Democracy and Progress. ( UNDP),a political party allied to the CPDM, remains as the minister of that ministerial portfolio.
It was in 1997 that Bello Bouba Maigari signed a platform with the CPDM. In 2004 and 2011, these political parties have made special appeals to their respective militants to vote for Paul Biya as their Presidential candidate. Mutation recalls that according to this platform, those who had signed an alliance with the CPDM, were handsomely rewarded with ministerial portfolios. In 2011,Marie Rose Dining militant of the party was appointed Secretary of state at the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development. Another political party that have envisaged the Senatorial election but is so quite is the ( FSNC) of Isa Tchorima Bakary, the minister of Communication.
This minister is amongst members of government who have beaten longevity records as members of government, according to the press. The National Alliance of Democracy and Progress ( ANDP) a break away faction of UNDP is also preparing quietly for the senatorial elections. Having a senator in the just ended Senatorial mandate, they are aspiring to improve on their membership. In order to do so, they have registered to contest in South West and Far North Regions.
The Minister of Transport was sacked when he was expected to officiate the opening ceremony of the new Port in Kribi. According to information from French Newspaper Nouvelle Expression published on the 5th of March, 2018, Edgar Alain Mebo Ngo'o felt humiliated following the cabinet reshuffle.
He was in charge of the ministry of Transport since the last cabinet rebrand of 2nd October 2015. He was replaced by Jean Ernest Messana Ngalle Bibehe. Paul Biya's Presidential decree as stressed by our correspondent came when the erstwhile Minister of Defence would have presided over the opening ceremony of the new port of Kribi.
Invitations and ceremonial gadgets and badges had already been printed and highlighted "Under the distinguished patronage of the Minister of Transport" In the supposed official opening of the Kribi Deep Seaport, that was programmed for the 2nd of March,2018, the Minister of Transport was supposed to officially launch the epic opening of the Kribi seaport.
Instead it was the Senior Divisional Officer for the Ocean Division, Antoine Bisaga, who had to officiate the opening ceremony of the port. The Kribi Deep Seaport nevertheless remains a white elephant project harnessed from borrowed funds that won't generate the much trumpeted returns. Lack of foresight and insight has ruined a beautiful project that was carried out without adequate environmental analysis as well as checking at their respective neighbouring countries, so as to see what kind of projects that are being carried out. If this was meticulously done, the Kribi Deep Seaport project would have been shelved for another lucrative project with ascertain financial returns.
The Senior Divisional Officer did the opening ceremony following very strict instructions from the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon. The opening ceremony was bizarrely done void of speeches as many onlookers and public opinion that deems such occasions to merit speeches. This presumed grandiose occasion was to remain an illusion because it would have been officially launched by President Paul Biya.
The Governor of the East who was on his way to Kribi was obliged to make a u-turn back to Ebolowa.
