The Cameroonian star is set to lock horns with Paul Biya in a case which comes as a result of an incident which occurred a few weeks ago. Bona could not attend his late mother’s burial due to the fact that he was declared persona non grata in Cameroon.
In that situation, he learned about a video that was circulating on social networks which displayed the cultural diversity of Cameroon. He equally noticed that he featured in the video initially posted on the Head of State’s account on 11 July 2017.
Not being happy seeing himself in that video, he immediately asked the Cameroonian authorities to withdraw his image from that video.
He even went further to get himself lawyers to face the government. Sources say some of his lawyers are coming from Nigeria, Uganda and England to fight his battle.
It was thanks to Essombe Tiako Joseph Emilienne, who fought against a Senegalese adversary on Sunday 23 July, that Cameroon can boast of a Gold medal in this competition.
Weighing just 58kg compared to her opponent who weighed more, as Essombe revealed, it was skill that earned her the position. The Senegalese was experienced and stronger but that did not help her in their ferocious fight.
“I daunted the task that I had before me this time around, which is more than what I showcased during the last games in France where I finished with a Silver medal” the athlete said.
She went further “I succeeded because luck was on my side too, given that the fight was so fierce. One other thing that helped me was the familiarity which we had had with each other. We have once trained together back in my opponent’s Country and we know the weak points of each other”.
The Gold medalist thanked her team mates, family members her coach and above all God who saw her through all of what she experienced.
The date for the distribution of Biya’s gift has been shifted to December after students have spent their whole school year saturating space in their brains needlessly with thoughts about some bait machines.
If the computers are really coming, then the regime surely tactically wants to give them out at a time not too distanced from elections. So that at that time, the gifts should still be fresh in the minds of students, some of whom will vote for the CPDM as a result of the laptops they have received.
Tongues are restless as many are wondering what could possibly be the reason for this delay. An excuse cannot be given related to insufficiency of money because the government had signed a deal with the Chinese Exim bank, which loaned them 75 billion FCFA. Equally, they saw the company Sichuan telecom, which had to manufacture the laptops and claimed the cost per machine was fixed at 150, 000 FCFA.
This delay means there is something behind which is not clear and the authorities involved do not want to let the public know.
On the eve of the National youth day (11 February 2017), during a TV program organised by the CRTV which took place in the Amphi-700 of the Ngoa Ekele university campus in Yaounde, students were given the opportunity to ask Ministers who were there present, questions. One of them asked about the laptops, willing to know when they shall be available. The Minister of Communication, Issa Tchiroma who never lacks what to say, responded unconvincingly and defending his Head of State as usual. He said the students should not be afraid, that the President had promised them and will definitely keep to his words. Everybody whether they liked it or not, had to take it that way, even though it was not straight to the point
After the symposium which CAF organised on 18 and 19 July 2017, a number of innovations were reached at. One of them was the increase in the number of teams participating in the African Cup of Nations as from the 2019 edition.
Cameroon’s position as the host country is very shaky , even though the government is doing everything possible to ensure that the organisation of this prestigious African football event rests in Cameroon. If they remain the hosts, they will be the first ever country to organise the competition with 24 teams instead of the usual 16 Nations.
It was equally decided that the host country presents 6 stadiums for the competition, a requirement which Cameroon is still struggling to meet.
Another decision which was taken and which is to the advantage of Cameroon is the shifting of the month of the competition to June and July. This means that Cameroon has six extra months on their side.
According to information revealed by reliable sources, the Cameroonian Minister of Transport Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o is involved in shady deals which the French forces of law and order are investigating.
They plan to arrest him on his next visit to Paris after they must have gone far with investigations and had enough proof of the crime he is being accused of. If he is arrested, it will be on charges of corruption and fraud.
Sources say that, he had been followed up on this matter for four years now. It has finally been concluded that he is one of the most corrupt Cameroonian authorities that have been visiting France.
A Gabonese top state official, Maixent Accrombessi the former Director of Cabinet in Ali Bongo’s administration, was arrested in a similar situation by the French Judiciary police in 2015, before being released later on.
As a sign of appreciation for the great job which the fishermen did, President Paul Biya thought it wise to give the men some money which was handed to them by the Governor of the Centre Region, Naseri Paul Bea.
Among the beneficiaries, was the Malian Fisherman who found the corpse. He was the one to whom highest credits were given. He saw the corpse after three days of intensive search by both members of the National Marine and local fishermen. “I thank the government, we all are happy” the Malian expressed his feelings.
The amount in the envelope was not disclosed but the content of the envelope was obviously heavy.
While the fishermen are being appreciated, the Bishops of the National Episcopal Conference of Cameroon, are cracking their heads on how to lay hands on the person or people behind this assassination according to them, as they don’t believe the state’s verdict on Bishop Jean Marie Benoit’s death. Government says the man of God got drowned.
