The skillfulness of a Musango Bus driver saved the lives of the passengers he was carrying in the Matomb locality of the Centre Region, even though three people got wounded.
Sources say that, the Musango driver struggled to dodge a truck that was trying to overtake a car coming from the opposite direction which would have collided with the 70-seater bus if not for the swiftness of the driver.
The Eseka gendarmerie officers went to the scene to find out who was on the wrong so as to mete out sanctions accordingly. Their boss Jean Baptiste Bokam, has been singing about road safety campaigns which most of them do not take seriously. They only come to the scene when there is already a situation at hand. When it is still at the level of prevention, all they care about is the money they are bribed with.
CRTV is becoming a centre of discontent for some of its workers who think Charles Ndongo might have been a good journalist but a mess when it came to managing people.
This disgruntlement got out of hand when the Director General of the CRTV signed a document on 26 July 2017, slashing down the salaries of its personnel for no good reason.
Before this reduction in pay package, he had employed more workers than expected. People whose incompetency could do nothing but call for a salary reduction, due to the increased number of employees.
Just like Paul Biya, he extended the retirement age of some of his workers, so that they could work and die in service.
On Friday, early in the morning, an explosion was heard in a locality called Meme some 13km form Mora, which killed four female suicide bombers.
Reports from Cameroon-info:net reveal that, according to security sources, the women made their way into the small village without being noticed. One of them at a point detonated her own bomb which killed her and two of the others. The fourth woman was shot by a police man before she could make any dangerous move.
Meme is a small village not too far from Mora which has equally been troubled by suicide bombings. One of its heaviest attacks from Boko Haram was on 19 February 2016, which left 20 people dead and over 50 others wounded as related by info:net.
The village is equally said to be a centre of the multinational task force which is fighting the Nigerian based terrorist group
Le Jour newspaper, in its July 28 edition, reported that the Head of State Paul Biya, has invited the President of the African Football Federation (CAF) Ahmad Ahmad, to his country Cameroon.
The very sources say, Ahmad is expected in Yaounde by mid-August, after he will have been through with his pilgrimage in Mecca.
It will not be an error for observers to suggest that the main purpose of the visit will be the 2019 AFCON which will be hosted by Cameroon. Fingers still remain crossed about Cameroon’s competence to organise this competition, given that they still have many requirements to meet up with such as, stadiums, lodging facilities and roads.
While Cameroon is struggling to remain the hosts, Algeria and Morocco are waiting for the least chance to take over.
The National President of the Cameroon People's Party (CPP), Edith Kahbang Walla, wrote a letter to the President of La Republique, enumerating a number of issues she thinks Biya needs to look into and fix within the shortest space of time. In this Letter she called on Paul Biya to give Southern Cameroonians what they want.
Kah Walla laid much emphasis on the right of our children to education, which the regime in power is doing nothing to guarantee.
"According to estimations, over 3 million children did not go to school during the 2016-2017 academic year in the North West and South West Regions, despite threats and use of force by your soldiers to make them go to school.
"Your government is calling on school resumption in a month's time... In what class will the children be, will they repeat or move to the next class? What measures have been taken to ensure smooth studies?
"It is clear that parents do not want to send their kids to school due to insecurity and arbitrary arrests that characterize the two English speaking Regions" the CPP President outlined.
She went further to say that, before schools even resume all the illegally detained Southern Cameroonians must be released.
Other key issues were mentioned in the letter like the Boko Haram insurgency in the Northern part of Cameroon and financial crisis that are plaguing the Country, which Biya was asked to give an account for.
"World financial institutions have so far been according us much confidence which is gradually helping us to attain our plan in terms of growth.
It is no doubt that we are facing falling prices of basic commodities of which fuel is not an exception, especially in the world market.
The sum of 667 million dollars, has been loaned to us by The International Monetary Fund. This collaboration is aimed at stabilising our economy and increasing job opportunities" the president explained.
According to him, much progress is being witnessed in Cameroon. He keeps on borrowing but we don't see what is being done with the money. It remains a wonder how it will be reimbursed to the lenders.
