“Less focus and rambling, chatting without a purpose of direction, tired and uninformed of events in his country” US Diplomat qualifies Paul Biya of Cameroon

In a recent Wikileaks cable released in September 20011, the former US diplomat to Cameroon says he discussed with president Paul Biya for over an hour on vital issues. The chat which took place in April 2009 focused Cameroon politics, security forces, corruption and the impact of the economic crisis. According to the US diplomat, “Biya was less focused and more rambling than in previous meetings and did not seem fully seized with the numerous pressing challenges his government faces”. He further states that Paul Biya look tired and was visibly not informed about what is happening in his own country, Cameroon. He chatted “unhurriedly and without purpose of direction”.

WikiLeaks Cameroon: CONFIDENTIAL and EXPLOSIVE; The Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization confesses

 In another confidential and  explosive WikiLeaks cable on Cameroon, the  Minister of Territorial Administration (MINAT)  and powerful member of the ruling party polit Bureau , Marafa Hamidou Yaya in a discussion with  Elisabeth Janet Garvey, former US Ambassador to Cameroon, the former  bares his mind about some burning issues in the country.  His disdain for Elections Cameroon-ELECAM, his worries on the fight against corruption among other issues are revealed. It should be noted that the declarations of these ministers, like the case of Amadou Ali of the Justice Department may be considered their personal opinions or views. However, these views are really not different from state policies implemented by them or   their ministries and the government at large.

Impunity in Cameroon: When ministers “have not stolen enough to be arrested”

A recent Wikileaks cable on Cameroon has revealed to the bewilderment of Cameroonians that in the course of a discussion with former US ambassador to Cameroon HE Janet Garvey, President Paul Biya literally admitted that inertia and impunity in Cameroon have destroyed the country under his watch for the past 29 years. This is supported when he is quoted in the cable as saying some ministers, and notably Inoni Ephraim “have not stolen enough” to be arrested. The questions are how much, must a minister steal to be arrested. Despite the ongoing selective arrest of suspected embezzlers, corruption continues as before.

Lebialem-Cameroon: The untold part of the curious journey

By Aloysius AGENDIA                                  

 In a bid to tell the world about Lebialem, The Post on its website published an article titled The Curious Journey to Lebialem laced with generalised utterances, hasty observations and loose statements.  Without questioning the prolific, imaginative, and creative skills of the writer, the article which was an excellent prose though, failed to paint a real picture of Lebialem and at best, it could be said it was misleading. This might have been as a result of the writer’s lack of knowledge on Lebialem and its history and certainly because his journey to the division was meant for something else. This is supported by the fact that the article was not accompanied by any picture. The picture used online in a different website to promote the article was not taken by the writer or a photographer of his media housed despite the fact that he had been there for a couple of days.

Congo 1961- Cote D’Ivoire 2011: Lessons from the UN, European backed coup d ‘etat

By Aloysius AGENDIA

Just as in 1961 when the Congolese nationalist and Pan Africanist Patrice Lumumba was arrested with the complicity of Belgian forces and UN troops and handed over to  Moise Tshombe, and subsequently killed under the auspices of CIA, Belgian forces and neo-colonial agent, Mombutu Seseko, on April 11, 2011 the president of Cote D Ivoire Laurent Gbagbo was overthrown by French troops in an assault at his residence that also included UN troops and rebels forces of Alasane Ouattara. This coup d ‘etat was the completion of the earlier failed coup d’état of 2002 and 2004.  Just as President Laurent was being humiliated on television, two French ships were already about leaving Abidjan sea port with millions of barrels of oil. And that is just the beginning of another drama that risk making Cote D Ivoire take the shape of DRC today i.e. a banana republic.  That is certainly not my wish.

Libya: An Ivorian scenario lurking: Allied forces and the Allied media- My suggestion

By Aloysius AGENDIA

Co-incidentally, the first American president who has continuouslyColonel Gaddafi pounded an African nation with bombs and in the process allegedly killed hundreds of civilians and destroyed non military targets is an “African American”, and again, the first African American president of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama. 

A lot has been written in different forums on the right and wrongs of the decision of  the USA, France and UK to lead an invasion force into Libya under the bogus claim of averting a humanitarian disaster.

The first democratically imposed “President” in Africa.....The New Trend?

By Aloysius AGENDIA

On March 10, 2011 Dramane Alasane Ouattara, the Ivorian unofficial rebel leader since 1999 ( father of the 1999 coup d' etat and the 2002 rebellion), and the one time closest ally of the former Ivorian dictator, Felix Houphouet Boigny entered history as the first democratically imposed ruler in Africa, to take charge of Cote D Ivoire. This was the outcome of the meeting of an AU Panel after months of intense lobbying, campaigns and interest negotiations following the controversial second round of presidential elections of November 28, 2010 in the West African country. The AU thereafter urged the Ivorian Constitutional Council which had been rejected by the rebel leader to again “constitutionalise” Ouatara by inaugurating him. The  Constitutional Council headed by a confidant of  incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo had annulled provisional results published under controversial circumstances by a confidant of Ouattara who headed the Electoral Commission. On April 004, 2011 over 1500 French soldiers and 7000 UN troops alongside 10.000 rebels supported by UN and French helicopter gun fire  bombarded Abidjan and kiilled several hundreds in the process. This was the last move to finally imposed Ouattara as president of Cote D Ivoire.

Lessons from North Africa: Rising up for ourselves and counting on ourselves

By Aloysius AGENDIA

The current wave of events in North Africa indicates that true freedom can only come through a genuine popular revolt and not tele-guided by some external forces who claim to love us more than we love ourselves. The streets spoke and the Tunisian dictator, Ben Ali, a hitherto darling of those who claim to speak for the international community fell. The streets again are speaking in Egypt and another dictator who has oppressed his people and supported by the same group of external forces is about falling. These two events if totally successful in bringing about radical changes in the most facets of the Egyptian and Tunisian society according to the wishes of the people, would be in no way different from the Iranian 1979 Revolution that brought down the “international community” backed dictator or again the revolts could be likened to the 1879 French Revolution that transformed France.

Wikileaks: France to intervene in Cameroon and Gabon in case of internal unrest

By Aloysius Agendia

In another secret diplomatic cable of US Embassy in Paris, France dated September 09, 2008 and released on January 09, 2011 by WIKILEAKS, it has been revealed that France has the obligation to intervene militarily to defend the neo-colonial government and secure its interests under the France Afrique secret deals signed with Cameroon in 1960 and later modified in 1974 and that which was signed with the Gabonese Government in 1960. The cable titled “France’s Changing Policy in Africa part III”, states, “Equally troublesome and outdated are certain
"secret" portions of some of the Agreements. According to
Marechaux, the Defense Agreements with CAMEROON and Gabon,
for example, contain "absurd" provisions obligating France,
upon request, to provide internal security in case of
domestic unrest in those countries”

WikiLeaks: How Francophone Africa gets indebted through theft and manipulation

As we continue to deplore the continuous manipulation of Francophone Africa  by successive colonial administrators  and their master France, we also urged on the need for us to come together and take our own destiny into our hands. Among others, we have to cancel the so called “debts we owe” these vampires, as well as nationalise all their assets and related unscrupulously-privatised corporations in Cameroon and the rest of the continent. We express the urgent need to cut all monetary (FCFA) ties with France and implore on our imminent future leaders to work with them as partners if we must continue collaborating. Anything short of  this, we must also add and accentuate deals with potential partners like  Brazil, Turkey, Argentina, Venezuela, Iran, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Mexico, South Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia etc. Below is a WikiLeaks  US Embassy-Cameroon confidential cable released on December 28, 201o and dated July 07, 2009. It reveals how the vampires ruling the Central African sub Region (CEMAC)  through the regional bank BEAC, connived with France to steal billions of our funds to fund French politics. Soon the same guys ruling us will go after loans from this same France and her allies with fabulous sums as interest rates. Read on
