Published

on

The first bi-annual Conference of Regional Governors in Cameroon opened on Monday, January 13, 2020 in Yaounde at the city’s council hall.

This was presided over by the Cameroon’s Minister of Territorial Administrations Paul Atanga Nji.

The meeting rallied all the governors from the ten regions, their collaborators, the Secretary of State in Charge of National Gendarmarie and the Delegate General for National Security.

Top on the agenda wwas the forthcoming twin elections scheduled for February 9th 2020 and the security situation in the restive Anglophone regions albeit calm and serenity.

During the meeting, Minister Atanga Nji says those boycotting the elections are simply exercising their constitutional rights and privileges even as he regrets their decision

However, the MINAT boss wares no time to issue a stern warning to those calling for elections boycott in what appears to be a red line, saying they will face the full weight of the government.

“What we can never accept or tolerate are statements like: I will not participate in the elections and I will do everything possible to stop other Cameroonians from exercising their civic right. That is when the State will display its might against whoever shall attempt to create disorder before, during and after the twin elections. Regardless of their social status, trouble makers shall be dealt with firmly and squarely in accordance with the laws of the Republic” he dates

Minister Atanga Nji continued without evidence to statethat those calling for elections boycott are not even up to 0.0075% of the national electorate.

In a rare moment of spiritual inspirational within government circles the minister quoted from St Pauls letter to the Romans 13:1-5 which credits submitting to authority as it is given by God and equally talked about punishment from those who go against hierarchy

In his general message, he was forcefully optimistic that all will be well as far as elections and security issues are concerned in Cameroon.

The seminar also saw presentations from national security and national Gendermarie bosses.

Ambazonian fighters on red alert as repentant “general” Nambere spoon-feeds government with vital intel

Published

on

It was a betrayal many described as shocking and heavy blow for the Ambazonian cause when former fighter “General” Nambere left the struggle to join forces with the government to help end the crisis. He was one of the highest profile defectors at the time.

TeboPost CEO described Nambere as an intelligence goldmine in an article published on this platform, saying his defection will provide vital information badly needed by the government to combat the separatist fighters

As one of the kingpins of the separatist fighters, Nambere was reportedly very much involved in high level decision making within the Ambazonian  circles.

His forces were active the better parts of Kupe Manenguba division and in November 2019, images flooded social media showing the former fighter dinning with some French diplomats and government officials in Yaoundé

Some activists took to social media to ridicule his defection, saying he was no longer influential on the ground, even though there have been multiple reports of infighting between Nambere and the leadership  of the Ambazonian movement for moths leading to his defection

The former Ambazonian fighter disappeared from the spotlight ever since, only to be seen among the 700 refugees who were brought back home by government from Nigeria earlier this January 2020.

On the official page of his website on  Monday January 13th 2020, renowned activist and Ambazonian frontline social media general Mark Bareta warned all activists and fighters who had contacts with Nambere to quit immediately as the former fighter had given vital intelligence to the Cameroon and government and Nigeria governments concerning the mode of operations of the fighters.

According to Bareta, Nambere had given key information related to supply routes for weapons and munitions by their fighters as well as supplies to both Cameroon and Nigeria government

He writes “important Alert

Anyone who has dealt with Nambere before in any capacity especially in purchase of sticks and Gnuts must change numbers and locality and be extra careful. Nambere has now officially activated the Nigerian security network in collaboration with French Cameroun embassy to pick up all those he worked with to stop the flow of Gnuts. Routes of movement must also change as well as staying alert. One of us was almost picked in G1, today, if not of our intelligence, it could have been sad. Please let’s share widely”

The two English speaking regions of Cameroon have been in crisis since 2016 in what is known as the Anglophone crisis. More than 3000 persons have been killed and hundreds of villages razed as armed groups  are fighting for the restoration of their state called Ambazonia

They decry endemic discrimination by the Francophone majority and have refused any form of direct dialogue with the state without third party.

The international community has called on both sides to negotiate and find peaceful solution to the crisis

The government has given given special status to the two regions in an effort to resolve the crisis but critics say it’s not enough

Motanga’s special status ambitions in wrecks as 9 billion goes missing in his council

Published

on

In a damning and indicting annual report by the national anti-corruption commission CONAC released yesterday December 19th 2019, the Limbe City council is thrown into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons

The Dieudonné MASSI GAMS’ 2019 CONAC report has put the entire Limbe city council on the entire edge as over 9 billion francs CFA is reportedly missing from the South West council

The report is sure to give the government delegate Andrew Mutanga and his inner circle and unwanted Christmas gift while the damming findings will sound like Christmas carol in the ears of his enemies as special status fallout looms.

Considered as one of the best government delegates in the country for his innovation and political foresight, the 9 billion thefts from Motanga’s council will surely dent his political ambitions and ruined his reputation he has built all this years

The business tycoon cum politician is widely considered as one of the political godfathers of the region, reigning large in the moist juicy city council in the entire Anglophone regions for a decade now and has indeed transformed Limbe into a small beautiful seas-side city

His City has been one of only two major towns (Nkambe in the North West region being the other) which has not been seriously affected by the Anglophone crisis and the peoples government delegate as he is fondly called has been highly credited for that

On the wake of the news that city councils would be dissolved as part of the resolutions to grant special status to the agitating north West and South West regions, the Limb city council government delegate quickly filed for the position of mayor of Limbe 2 council, with many expecting him to win and run for the position of city council mayor in the nearest future.

But Mutanga’s political cards seem to be crumbling with this report, news of missing 9billion under his care seem to have all but open the floodgates of Kondengui to a man many had seen as the Mr. Clean in the region and a political shining star. The report does not indicate he personally stole the money or is directly involved but very few would believe such a huge amount can go missing without the knowledge of the head of the institution

The weeks and months ahead will be pregnant; CONAC doesn’t not have the powers to prosecute its reports in the past have been ignored by the government especially when those concerns are in the good books of the regime, drawing criticism from critics who say the government is not serious to fight corruption.

But with the country’ endless political problems in front of the international community and the die need for foreign banks and government to give loans to Yaoundé, Mutanga might be sacrificed to tell the world the fighting against corruption is real in the embattled West African nation-Cameroon
