Boris Judicaël Nganou,Senior Executive at Cameroon Telecommunications (Camtel, Cameroon's leading public telecommunications operator),  is involved in an alleged scandal of misappropriation of a sum of 3 billion in the Camtel Mobile Network (CMN) project of which he was the Director, the time when the latter was Minister of Economy, Planning and Spatial Planning (MINEPAT) ).{loadposition myposition}


He was already part of a group of Camtel leaders and former leaders banned in March 2018 from leaving Cameroon by a decision of the General Delegate for National Security, pursuant to the instructions of the President of the Republic.

It is therefore possible that in the days to come, the two officials will be taken to one of the prisons in Yaoundé, as has become a custom in Cameroon where the slightest questioning amounts to a presumption of ... guilt and leads on a detention pending trial, even the "justice" is embarrassed too much of the rules of criminal procedure to wring havoc on the rotten Republic who know too well make their shenanigans undetectabe.

The case of embezzlement of public funds to Camtel could lead to life imprisonment for its actors and protagonists if they were convinced of the crime, considering the exorbitant amount of the sum at stake

Cameroon: Gambling,the other addiction of the youths. http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-gambling-the-other-addiction-of-theyouths http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-gambling-the-other-addiction-of-theyouths Cameroon: Gambling,the other addiction of the youths.

More than thirty years after the arrival of the first casinos, PMU and other slot machines, gambling experiencing real success with the Cameroonian youth with the arrival of "Pari Foot".{loadposition myposition}

The kiosks of " Pari Foot " have invaded the streets of the big cities of Cameroon and even those of small remote localities.

We now find slot machines in almost every bar and dozens in almost every neighborhood.
 
During the day and in the evening, students under the age of 10 or more, high school students young people with no jobs and sometimes women scramble to win and "become a millionaires."

It is 9 o'clock this Wednesday morning at a place called Pétrolex d'Olembé (a district of the first district of Yaounde), Stephen and Andy in their early twenties watch the results of meetings the day before.

Both lost in Tuesday's game. Stephen bet for more than 2,000 FCFA and Andy says he lost 1,500 FCFA. They are going to bet again this Wednesday.

"It's the game. One day you lose, another day you win. One day I will win. My friend earned 800 thousand FCFA the other day, "says Stephen.

The young clothing salesman, spending 10 to 15 thousand FCFA per week to play "Pari foot."

Our attention is attracted by a young student of about 15 years in high school uniform of Nkozoa. He goes quickly to the manager of the kiosk to whom he gives 50 FCFA to receive in exchange the list of matches of the day.

"He's a regular," says the kiosk manager. However, there is a mention that proscribes games to minors under 18 years.

"The principle of the game is simple. We play from 300 FCFA. You can choose up to 15 matches, "explains the kiosk manager.

"There are people who often bet here 15,000 FCFA per day," he adds.

Many Cameroonians are addicted to gambling. They hope to make millions and get out of their poverty.

In these games rooms, we meet women, police and military but especially young people.

Until 2016 there was only one sports betting company in Cameroon. Mutual Urban Cameroonian Bet (Pmuc).

Since the liberalization of the sector we have seen the appearance of the " Pari Foot " and Cameroonian football fans have become notorious snags with the hope of winning every day.

Open Letter to: The Ambassador of the State of Israel Yaoundé, République du Cameroun http://cameroon-concord.com/local/open-letter-to-the-ambassador-of-the-state-of-israel-yaounde-republique-du-cameroun http://cameroon-concord.com/local/open-letter-to-the-ambassador-of-the-state-of-israel-yaounde-republique-du-cameroun Open Letter to: The Ambassador of the State of Israel Yaoundé, République du Cameroun

From: A Collective of Anglophone Cameroonians in the Diaspora.

 

Shalom, Your Excellency!

 

We, a collective of Africans from Southern Cameroon, the English-speaking part of Cameroon, which is going through a bloody civil war and refugee crisis, have the honour to address this letter to you. We are friends of Israel. Some of us live legally in Israel, some of us have studied in Israel or visited Israel on business or attended academic conferences there, while others have paid religious pilgrimages to the holy sites in Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, Bethlehem, Nazareth, the Mount of Olives, the Jordan River, etc.

 

We wish to state that we followed with interest, the widely-disseminated press release of February 4, 2019 from the Israeli Embassy in Yaoundé, Cameroon, condemning the televised anti-Semitic and tribalistic comments of Cameroon’s Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Justice, Hon. Jean de Dieu MOMO. The minister implied that the Jewish victims of Hitler’s monstrous and unspeakable genocide were in fact the culprits of the genocide.We condemn in the strongest possible terms, terms this attempt by Mr. MOMO to make light of the massacre of millions of innocent men, women and children for personal political gain.{loadposition myposition}

 

We therefore welcome the decision of the Cameroon government to apologize unreservedly for these ignorant and extremely hateful remarks which were in fact a veiled attempt to justify crimes against humanity directed at minorities in Cameroon.

 

Honorable Ambassador, while we condemn historic crimes against humanity, as well as diminishment of those crimes, we must not turn a blind eye to contemporary human rights violations and crimes against humanity, even though these crimes do not rise to the level, scope, or magnitude of the Jewish Holocaust.  We are talking about well-documented crimes against humanity being committed in the English-Speaking Southern Cameroon as we speak by the Cameroon military, and specifically, the elite military unit, BIR (Brigade d’Intervention Rapide), which is trained, equipped and commanded by former Israeli military officers.

 

 

On February 7, 2018, Israeli human rights lawyer, Eitay Mack, and 15 other Israeli human rights activists wrote to the Israeli Defense Export Agency, Israeli Ministry of Defense, complaining about the massive human rights violations of the BIR in North Cameroon as well as Southern Cameroon (North West and South West regions).  The Israeli activists ably and accurately presented the historical and political dimensions of the on-going Anglophone problem in Cameroon. They documented the crimes against humanity committed by the BIR, and reproduced denunciations of these crimes by the African Union, the United Nations Human Rights Commission, the European Union, Amnesty International, and multiple other governments and organization.

 

http://bamendaonline.net/report-isreali-lawyers-call-ban-arm-export-bir-n-demaging-report/

 

According to human rights observers, the Israeli-supplied Cameroun army and BIR have attacked and burned down more than 100 villages, and killed thousands of civilians. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that more than 50, 000 Southern Cameroon refugees have so far crossed into Nigeria, while more than 200,000 people are internally displaced. Many of these refugees will head to Europe, others will head for the shores of Israel

 

In the light of this human right catastrophe in which Israel is directly and indirectly involved through its training and equipping of the notorious BIR, Mr. Eitay Mack and his colleagues called on the Israeli government to stop exporting Israeli weapons to the BIR. They concluded that:

“The citizens of Israel, the State of Israel or the Knesset have never declared war on the residents of the English-speaking provinces of Cameroon, and have never voted to support the eternal reign of an aging dictator.”

 

The Collective of Anglophone Southern Cameroonians in the Diaspora, which considers itself afriend of Israel, associates itself with the sentiments of Mr. Eitay Mack and his Israeli human rights activist colleagues, and call on the government of Israel to refrain from being a partner in crimes against humanity in Southern Cameroon.

 

Your Excellency, please accept the expression of our highest consideration

 

The Collective of Anglophone Cameroonians in the Diaspora.

The Minister of Communication Issa Tchiroma Bakari organised a press conference on Thursday 14 June 2018, in order to debunk the allegations of Amnesty international concerning the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon, which according to them, are false.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Since the begining of the unrest in the English speaking Regions of Cameroon, Amnesty International, an organisation for the fight of human rights has written several reports about the issue from 2017 to 2018.

In their reports, the organisation holds the Cameroonian army guilty of causing havoc within the population and merciless torturing of alleged secessionist terrorists.

in reaction to the accusations, the government as usual through their communication minister Issa Tchiroma Bakari, organised a press conference on 14 June to give their own part of the story and prove the human rights organisation wrong.

The public outing of Tchiroma on Thursday was meant to tackle Amnesty International's report of June 12 2018.
