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

Limbe chiefs vomit embattled Motanga amidst corruption scandal

Published

on

Report from the city of Limbe says 7 chiefs have written a memo calling on Andrew Motanga – government delegate to the Limbe city council to resign

The leaked letter from the chiefs which TeboPost has a copy says the chiefs are not happy with the embezzlement allegations hovering over the head of the embattled government delegate hence,he should resign immediately

Motanga is due to appear before the special criminal court in Yaounde on the 5th February 2020 to answer to charges of embezzlement of 9 billions francs CFA at the Limbe city council

The money CONAC (Cameroon’s anti corruption agency) says was stolen over a 9 years period and the government degate has been occupying that seat for almost a decade.

Motanga is running as Councillor of Limbe II council and was widely expected to be the new city mayor of limbe following special status granted to Anglophone regions.

The positions of government delegates are expected to be scrapped and be replaced by city mayors who will be exted by other councilors

But his political future now looks shattered amidst biting allegations which risk sending him behind bars for a very long time if found guilty

Cameroon teachers under attack: Why is everyone beating up teachers?

Published

on

The latest shocking incident in a government high school in Ayos where a divisional officer unchorograhically brutalized a teacher in front of students comes to cap a month of ceaseless attacks on teachers and indeed the noble profession

Reports there (Ayos) say the Divisional Officer was momentarily blocked from entering a class in the school she was visiting because students were taking exams.

But the teacher’s plea for the DO to give more time to the students to complete their evaluation was met with brutal force from an administrative official whose superiors have been noted for reckless brutality against the people

Earlier this year, a teacher was stabbed by a 15-year-old student in a class to dead for violating school rules and bringing a phone to class, the attack shocked the nation and sparked an on-line debate about the safety and security of teachers in school.

Teachers have therefore been the laughing stock of the Cameroonian society; lately as many have been subjected to ridicule and their once revered status disappeared.

On Thursday, September 29, 2019, a military officer, adjudant Boris Djouledem, got a teacher in government school Garage Militaire in Bafoussam almost beaten to death for punishing a form five student who happens to be his son who failed to do his assignment.

According to the ministry of secondary education, teachers have been attacked at least 15 times in the past month alone by parents, begging the question of what is happening?

Records of administrative officials and powerful parents beating up teachers with the complicity of some reckless law enforcement officers are not new but becoming rampant lately

The rich and powerful are wasting no time to benefit from Cameroon’s lawless system to beat up teachers, lock them up for very basic reasons as correcting their kids in school in a manner they do not like.

It’s no news that the rich and powerful in the country are themselves the law. Most of them have the powers to incarcerate the poor and underprivileged even for no crime for as long as they are satisfied, but what is surprising is the fact that this culture has been brought even to the people responsible for their children’s future-teachers were once seen as noble and secondary parents of kids

For a profession once admired and regarded as one belonging to the morally upright and privileged few who are charged with the colossal task to raise future doctors, engineers, scientists, and all other professions, the long respect and ‘adoration’ teachers once enjoy is now history.

Some argue the teachers are partly to be blamed for their own misfortunes in a brutal and increasingly hostile workspace, arguing that teaching profession has been ridiculed, filled with incompetent workers who can afford to buy their way through government entrance exams to the teaching profession even without the passion for the job, committing unacceptable mistakes in the process thereby attracting the rod of brutal and powerful parents and administrators.

But even that argument will not justify the latest aggressive onslaught against teachers by those who should be protecting them-after all; everybody was once a pupil or student under a teacher

The latest incident in Ayos involving a DO brutalizing a teacher for protecting the right of students have sparked debate in the country about the state of the law in Cameroon as   attacks from present and current students increases and salary stagnates, making them a laughing stock of the society

There have been calls for the administrator to be sanctioned by authorities. The secondary education minister has expectedly maintained sealed lips over the incident…but this is Cameroon, Some DOs are more powerful than some ministers and the business of sanctioning can be quiet tricky.

Students in the Ayos high shool today January 24th, 2020 staged a protest earlier in the morning calling for their teacher who was locked up for defending them in the hands of an overzealous administrators, some teachers announced a protest of their own, calling for no chalk day-But many of them will be consoled by the fact that at least they still have the rights to protest. Other Cameroonian doesn’t seem to posses even that basic right to protest against what they think is wrong-Excerpt, of course, it’s to support the regime in place

Faced by multiple crises, armed conflict in Anglophone regions, rebels in the east and terrorists in the North, many say the state of Cameroon is gradually fragmenting and losing hold of its strength, as everything seems to be wrong at these moments.
