LIKE MANY ANGLOPHONE SCHOLARS, THEY ALWAYS
MISPLACED THE PRIORITY. IE. WHICH CAMERON,
THEY ARE FOCUSING. SOUTHERN CAMEROONS, HAVE NEVER BEEN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED AS A
PROVINCE OF LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN, AND LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN, HAVE NEVER GONE BACK TO THE UN, THE OFFICIAL REGISTER
SOUTHERN CAMEROONC AS IT PROVINCE SOO, WHERE
IS LAW AND LOGIC. IS IT SIMPLY BECAUSE A
NATION HAVE ARMED FORCES, THAT IT CAN WITH
COMPLETE ANOMNITY, OCCUPY ANOTHER, AND USE
ITS MILITARY TO CONTROLIT?
NO BODY CAN TALK ABOUT CORRUPTION WITHOUT FIRST TALKING ABOUT THE, TWO-NESS OF THESE
WEST AFRICAN STATES.

This interview definitely passed you by, Mr. Paolo Laurent!! Prof. Kale is an international lawyer who deals with corruption at International lawyer. That means he is free to give his opinion about corruption issues in any country in the world. Which is why he has written about countries as diverse as Chile, Ghana, and the Philipines. So there is nothing wrong with him talking about corruption in Cameroon, especially since it affects your dear Southern Cameroons directly...

Please clarify me here; Southern Cameroon's nationalists don't want any Southern Cameroonian scholar to talk about anything other than Southern Cameroons? Your country will not have any expert on Arab, US or European affairs? No understanding of world affairs to map a place for your country on the international scene? Even the "evil" Biya has never made such an outrageous demand!! Southern Cameroons shall be free? I doubt it with folks like you running the show...

Ma Mary

Every cause has its share of hot heads and shallow actors like poor Paolo. Do not let that deceive you for one moment, loko. Southern Cameroons shall be restored like a dozen other occupied countries around the world.

I will like to thank pr.Kale for such brillant ideas about anti corruption plan. Even though his plan sounds a bit complicated, he is just playing the role of the intellectual in the society.This should sound as an example to most of our intellectuals in the diaspora that instead of just condemning the system, they should give proposals on how the country can come out from the economic crisis.If the government fails to listen the almighty God will atleast be their witness.I stongly believe that if Pr. Kale organises a press conference in Yaounde with the asistance of the american embassy in yaounde the government may be forced to buy his ideas.

Ma Mary

Sure Wasaloko, some of us intellectuals are working overtime to split from la Republique. We actually do not believe that the marriage with la Republique is a done deal. It only looks so on the surface. Back in in its hey day, British colonial rule on Gold Coast (Ghana) looked like a done deal. There is no such thing, only perception. This is a message to those of you Southern Cameroonians who are wasting their time. Francophones and French will never listen They think you are fools for being so serious about probity.

Managers Soon To Declare Assets, Property

Two draft bills were tabled at the National Assembly yesterday during a plenary sitting.

Members of Parliament will henceforth engage in serious work for the March ordinary session of the 2006 legislative year. Since the official opening ceremony of the session last March 9, they have been comparatively busier with putting in place the National Assembly bureau, Committees and their executive so that work on examining draft bills can start.

Yesterday, March 16 during a plenary sitting presided over by the First Vice President of the National Assembly, Etong Hilarion, two draft bills were tabled. The highly awaited draft bill was that relating to the declaration of assets and property
...
Chapter one of the draft bill specifies persons liable to the mandatory declaration of assets and property to include all authorising officers of public funds within any partnership or any private body receiving public funds as subsidies or grants. The draft bill is clear in its chapter two as procedures for the declaration of assets and property and the type of property are stated. In this way, the declarants must, within three months of their election or appointment and at the end of their tenure of office, report on the status of their property to the competent Committee. It further specifies that declarations shall concern the assets and property of persons liable as well as those held in community with spouse or in co-ownership. An Assets and Property Declaration Reception Committee shall receive the declarations. The draft bill provides the possibility for declarants to request a compromise, as well as various sanctions for refusal to declare their assets and property of false declarations.

Brother Kange William,

You have said it all. Many Cameroonians live abroad, enjoy prosperity and peace but are eager to call for hate and division the Country. They have no ideas to offer but they dream of creating their own Kingdom.
Pof. Kale is a True Son of Cameroon. He is a Progressive Cameroonian who has been working very hard to help his country to move forward. I have met him personally in Dallas and I have always known him to be a TRUE PATRIOT.
He is someone CAADIM and the people of Cameroon respect.
Prof. Kale makes Progressive English and French Cameroonians very proud.
Progressive Cameroonians are winning and we will take back our Country with ideas not ethnic cleansing, tribalism, division, hate and creation of another Corrupt Kingdom.

May God Bless him!

Riccardo
CAADIM

Profesor Ndiva's analysis is very timely, given the magnitude at which funds are leaving Africa for clandestine destinations in Europe and North America. There is a catch though, embezzling Africans are not likely to repatriate their hidden loot without some punitive measures facing them. The process also needs the cooperation of nations where these funds are hidden. Recall the case of Umaru Diko in Nigeria where Nigeria tried kidnapping him from Britain only to have Britain rescue him? The money was hidden in British Banks, there was no incentive for the British cooperating. Switzerland has created enormous wealth for herself by encouraging foreign investors to steal. She allowed all currencies into the country and charged interest on foreign accounts, with the promise of safeguarding your wealth as well as confidentiality. Africans can only speculate as to how much their governments have stolen from them. The receiving countries make no effort in helping. They chastisize Africans for corruption, preach a lot of anti-launering rhetoric to who cares to listen, yet, the bulk of the stolen loot sits in their Banks. How do you reconcile such double standards? The profs. hypothesis is well founded, its the forces that have been instrumental in our misery that will be hard to deal with.
