When there shall have established real democracy, independent judiciary and an independent parliament whose budget shall not be decided by the presidency,and when the security forces will have learned to protect and serve the people,not one man,legitimacy would engender confidence, participation and investment flows. Until then,both Cameroonians and foreigners shall continue to be apprehensive about investing in Cameroon.The inpspectors of taxes descend on new enterprises like flies over shit. That scares off investors.

Where is the road to Nigeria, which is potentially our biggest trading partner? Not France, not China!

In order for people to take control, they need to behave like Iranians. They have tried it before and there was a backlash.

Dr A A Agbormbai

A great speech!

Ras Tuge

Hmm, seems like the Ambassador read my mind!This is exactly what i have been trying to remind my home boys and girls about, but many still take me for a simpleton. Well now, see the way Babylon people think! Since Africans in general and Cameroonians in particular never believe in people who look like them, i hope they'll take this lady seriously. I have said this many times before.

The tide has turned folks. TA new era of responsibility is upon us. A new wind of change is blowing over Africa and the world.

Be wise and listen up. Hers was a clarion call for action. Empower yourself now and take control of your destiny.

The lines have been drawn it is now up to you. You, who has ached for change in Cameroon.

This is a hard one. And a call for cameroonians to wake up from their slumber.For more than 30 yrs cameroonians have been larmenting in the hands of the french government.I solemnly invite all cameroonians to borrow Obama's words we can do it and rise as one man and say no to corruption,no to ethnic politics, no to political vandalism.No to the french government and military pact. Cameroon is not in war with any country, why military pact. On a positive note we should be talking Economic coroperation, the building of hospitals, Roads,No to political dynasty in Cameroon etc.

Bob Bristol

A great speech indeed! But let this not sound as if Cameroonians have been very dormant. The All University strike of 2005 and the February 2008 general uprising were not only meant to address the plight of the students or to topple the regime. We need a fair taxing rate and a conducive business atmosphere. I think Cameroonians are very willing to exploit investment opportunities but continues government measure are being used to render the people POOR and LESS FOCUSED.

With a heavy heart, I'll urge the people to take on the streets once more. This time not in a radical manner but in a mournful portrayal of disgust over the deterioration of a BELOVED COUNTRY at the peak of destruction. A revision of the fiscal and economic policies should be at the centre of their requests.

Facing the fact,Cameroon politics is divisive and repressive,lifting all trade barriers will provide dynamic boost to cameroon fortunes. Infact cameroon has not been a victim of globalisation. Government does not encourage foriegn and private investors. missmanagement of everykind,has murdered the image of the country.A dizzying taxes,outlandish regulations, administrative inertia. The legal systerm very corrupt,The labour code very complicated,for instance jobs for life still rampant in cameroon. Monopolies,Dishonesty amongst government officials, indiscipline ministers and their head of state.Solution is, we all should be patriotic and love Cameroon.

asafor valentine

Hey boys, am a southern cameroons,and very much in support of the struggle. However lets be a little serious,I abandoned my job after working for 8yrs because most of us southern cameroonians were treated as secondclass citizens in the company. Promotion was base on who you know, and not on what you know.I left for Nigeria,spend a month in nigeria, hoping to meet the Niger deltas guys, for us to negotiate on how to liberat southern cameroon from the bondage the ransom the guys demanded i could not afford it. I abandoned the project and embark on an unforseen trip, to come back for the liberation of the beloved country. Remember, the world is talking globalisation,and cameroon cannot be left out.We are fighting a war on two front.We have done much to inform the international community on this sensitive issue. What is left now should be an arm struggle,freedom is never awarded a word to a wise is enough.

When cameroonians are beaten and murdered on the streets as they protest injustice, when students are shot death, brutalized and raped on their campuses as they protest corruption and when Biya and his ethnic oligogues empty cameroon's treasury and stash their offshore bank accounts and the US and it allies stay silence, then cameroonians cannot be blamed for not taking responsibility Mrs Ambassador. You know how cameroonians have and are still sacrificing with blood and tears to establish democracy in cameroon, but France wouldn't let them.
So help us God!

ERYTHREAN G.

Asafor, if u want to be serious, ur unforseen (sic)journey should lead u but to Erythrea and learn liberation warfare from them: they were in same position like you, attached to and subjugated by Ethiopia, they chose the argument of force and the worldd heeard them as u rightly know. there was east timor and there was kosovo just yesteerday: nothing came on the negotiation table, the battle front does it! koffi annan told/advised your seccessionists that they should treasure the peace reigning in cmaeroon, that he & the UNO were bbusy with other hot potatoes! meaning: become a hot warring potato and the UN & international community will listen. force on with argument and you will be indulging in you own monologue. and curse ur own self forever if ur people dont understand this!

Walah Kah

I hate when people mention the case of Erythea because that country has become one of the most repressive and despotic countries in the world. If that is the example that a "Free" Southern Cameroons will use as a model, then I'll rather stay put with Biya or even prefer to join Equatorial Guinea.

Southern Cameroonian

Correctimundo, Mrs Ambassador. Southern Cameroonians have no stake in la Republique and Eritrea is not our model, no thank you sir Walah Kah. There are many other beautiful models of countries that broke out of the embrace of colonial annexation.

Peter Ngosa

Madam Ambassador: Thanks for your activism.
Cameroon's history should reveal to you that
English Cameroon was stolen by tricking Dr. Foncha
and Mr. S.T. Muna & others were killed like Mr. Jua
To we need permission of the franco-phones to oepn
even a common school in the English parts.
We have been 90% marginalized . We are the
only formal British United Nations Protectorate
that is yet to become an independent country.
WE WANT OUT OF FRENCH CAMEROON
