Economic plunder is a crime worse than mere murder because of the cascading effects. It traps populations in poverty, ignorance and disease. It shortens lifespans; it causes social chaos and dislocation and war. What is the role of the West (or North) in this. They condemn corruption, but look away and smile when these crooks purchase properties on Cote D'Azur or Palm Beach and stash the money into their banks.

Plunder is a capital offence in the Phillipines. That is a result of their suffering under Ferdinand Marcos.

When Professor Kale in his contribution to The Post Newspaper suggested what he called a debt-franc swap, many were those who raised their voices to condemn it outright. They rather thought those who have embezzled state funds be punished outright. I would like to note here that Professor Kale, a man of repute and a fine connoisseur of issues like this has recognised their worries. Yet on my part I see alot of foresight in this debt-franc swap proposal. It has become increasingly recognised today that sometimes one virtually has to coax criminals into submission.

Interestingly enough, at the moment of this interview, word has it that the government is tabling a proposal to parliament with the view of building an operational text for the famous ARTICLE 66.
May I crave the indulgence of the legal luminary-Professor Kale to make for us an "AVANT PROJET", for a working mechanism of article 66 based on models like that of Ghana and several others he has studied.


Kudos for this great both by the interviewer and the intervieweee! This is the difference betweeen a journalist who studies his or her subject before an interview session, and the one who just shows up with a microphone with the hopes that "the questions will come as we speak" (the common practice in Cameroon) ...

I hope every Cameroonian journalist reads this to understand the meaning of an "interview".



You are a True son of Cameroon. I hope people who hold political power and decision makers of Cameroon should listen to your suggestions.
May God Bless You.
