Minister of water and Energy, Basile Atanga Kouna, says his hands are clean in a case wherein he is accused of swindling 200 billion FCFA, money which was meant for the development of water schemes in Yaounde so as to reduce water shortage. The State's man was recently called up at the Presidency of the Republic to give his own part of the story.
The La Republic Minister is suspected to have over budgeted the project which was in his charge, so as to have a swell in his bank accounts. The project was estimated to cost 450 million dollars but it was discovered that, the figures had shifted right up to 800 million dollars.
Cameroon is said to have made available just 15% of the money needed, that is 125 million dollars, 86 billion in FCFA. Even at that level, nothing has been done on the project since January 2017. But rather, the sum of 1 billion Fcfa has been spent on the construction of parking lots, and tracks for Biya's helicopter.
Till date, the population is facing water crisis. A good number of them have contracted water borne diseases such as typhoid and some even die, while morons of the dictatorial regime embezzle money whenever it wills them.

For some days now, there have been rumours about Samuel Etoo, the Cameroonian international, making a move to some Turkish teams especially Fenerbahce. With all of this, he still has a year with Antalyaspor and the team’s president says he is not ready to let go of the indomitable lions’ former captain.
When spoken to, Etoo’s agent Wilfried De Happi, reacted saying his player has done so much for the Turkish team, scoring 38 goals in two years and registering 11 assists. “Now at the age of 36, he thinks he deserves better than what he gets” the agent explained.
Antalyaspor’s club president does not want to hear anything about transfer especially not concerning Etoo. He said that he might favour his departure out of Turkey, but if it is within the country he is unlikely to consider it.
Looking at how Etoo’s future could be with the Turkish side, his agent explained that, it will be difficult for someone to give in their best, if they don’t have a free mind. So Etoo might not still perform as good as he did for the past two years with the club.

4 September, noticed that the turn out of students and pupils was not as effective as
