At the time when the Prime Minister of Cameroon is back in the North West Region for a second round of visits to persuade parents and stakeholders to reopen schools, students in Anglophone Cameroon have lost almost 50% of the time allocated for effective teaching. If we consider 1st November 2016 as the effective start date of the strike in government and lay private schools then it is plausible to conclude statistically that as of 3rd March 2017 (which marks the end of the 4th Sequence)- Children have lost part of Sequence 2, and all of Sequences 3 and 4.
– Children have lost 16 of the 36 weeks mandated for effective teaching.
– The number of weeks lost represent 400 hours of effective teaching
– 400 hours is 44.44% of the time allocated for effective teaching and learning
When one considers Article 33.2 of the joint Ministerial Order establishing the 2016/2017 Academic year, it would be credible to argue that the Prime Minister’s effort may not be worth the resources. The Ministerial text explicitly states that “Under no circumstances shall the sum total of lesson hours per pupil/student be less than 900 hours, excluding the time set aside for assessment”. Assumedly, the Prime Minister’s hope is to extend the academic year and provide ample time for students to receive the lesson time required. What are the possibilities? To regain the lost 16 weeks,
– Classes would need to begin effectively on 6th March for the 5th Sequence.
– Classes will have to be extended till 29th September 2017.
– Official Exams will be written from 2nd October and 17th November 2017
Implications: The 2017/2018 Academic year will start in December after the release of Official Exams results. Admissions to University and other institutions will be in January 2018. The next academic year is in jeopardy.
What John Creiter (a one time Peace Corp Volunteer to Bamenda) said about Cameroon is nothing but the Truth.:
“I worked and lived in Cameroon for 16 years. I ran my own private Research, Interviews and Experiments from 1982 until 1998.
Two million of the likes of John Fru Ndi cannot change Cameroon Anglophones’ Plight.
Everything is wrong with the Anglophone Political class. Anglophone Political Class have become so corrupted that it will only take a revolution to change the plight of Southern Cameroons .
Here is what you experience where even an Anglophone is In Charge. The Director won’t give you contract except you pay up front .
The banks won’t give you loan except you concede a certain percentage. The man supervising the contract won’t pass the job except you pass the ball. The Secretary won’t pass your file for payment except you rob his or her palm. The accounts department won’t raise your payment voucher or cheque unless you see them. I can go on and on.
The worst thing is that it has become a norm that nobody sees anything wrong with. If you think otherwise, they begin to think you are sick and not normal. If you try to stand in their way, you put your life at risk. If you get killed there is no justice system in place to seek redress and bring the perpetrators to book.
The Police, Gendarmerie, Military is corrupt; with the Judiciary leading the bandwagon. Even the religious circle is not spared. Everything in La République du Cameroun revolves around corruption. Nobody cares about anybody talk less the nation. There is No law and order. I looked from my left to the right, everybody is only desperate about one thing “Money”. They will kill anybody and anything that stands between them and money.
The system doesn’t care about Qualifications. Distribution and Transmission and Contracting of jobs favours only Cronies, Friends, Relatives and Laughable enough, even Church heads, generally have no basic skills or experience in the jobs assigned to them. I overheard a man in Kumba telling his elder brother, “Brother, most times I ask myself, how do I convince my kids that education and hard work is rewarding?” When Fools, Moto-park Loaders, Thugs and Touts are running the country from the Subdivisions to the Presidency, what can we expect from such a system? Is this what my two children will also go through?
In year 2000, the man in question decided he had had enough. He decided to move to Australia with his family”. The American concluded his testimony.
That’s how many of us also left the Country…not proud of our Surrender though. You (the people back home) are now our Saviors that God has raised. We living outside are very proud of you all. The problem of Anglophone Cameroonians is in the hands of Anglophones living in Cameroon.
The Corruption has so eaten our people up that if you Try starting a building in your village, everybody wants to profit from it, by all means. The bricklayer, the carpenter, the mason and even your brother who claims to be supervising on your behalf, will do all to cut corners.
They are corrupt, morally bankrupt and selfish.
You don’t have to be the one to go there to change anything. Let those under the hammer start the revolution.
This post is gonna anger a lot of people, but I have to post it anyway.
An Analogy On
THE OPPRESSORS & FOOLISH CITIZENS.
A Case Study On (Cameroon Citizens & Their Appointed Oppressors).
During the Soviet dictatorship of Joseph Stalin. He was a brutal dictator with a mind of his own. On one fateful day, Stalin came to the Politburo meeting with a live chicken. Standing in front of the audience, He started to pluck off the feathers of the live chicken, one by one. The chicken trembled in pain, blood tricking out of its pores. It gave our grievous cries, but Stalin being a cruel dictator, continued without remorse… plucking the feathers out until the chicken was completely naked. After which, he threw the chicken on the ground. The naked chicken was staggering in pain. Stalin got into his pocket and from his pockets, he took out some chicken feed and started to throw it at the poor & helpless creature. The poor chicken in pain started eating and Stalin started walking towards his seat. As he walked away, he kept dropping some of the feed on the floor and the chicken followed him and sat feeding at his feet.
Joseph Stalin then turned to the members of his political party leadership and said, “This chicken represents the people”. “You must disempower them, brutalise them, beat them up, starve them and then leave them”. “If you do this, go into your pocket and give them peanuts when they are in that helpless and desperate situation. They will blindly follow you for the rest of their life, worshiping you”. “They will think you are a hero forever. They will forget that, you are responsible for their sorrowful situation in the first place.”
Breath taking, isn’t it?
Now, take a look at all the people some Southern Cameroonians are busy defending on social media. Take a look at those they call their heroes. They are the same people who plunged Southern Cameroon into the situation she is today. They are the same people who are responsible for the predicaments Southern Cameroons is facing today.
Do you see the number of people that throng Political Sellouts’ houses during Christmas and other holidays to go collect peanuts? Did you see the crowd that hails the likes of Musongé? Do you see the crowds that turn out to get free CPDM uniforms, free drinks, free cups of salt, free cups of rice? Your guess is as good as mine. And the likes of many others, we all know about?
A majority of CAMEROONIANS KILL THOSE THEY SHOULD DEFEND and DEFEND THOSE THEY SHOULD KILL.
The fight continues – It is revolutionary now.

SITUATION ACT VERY TENDEN BETWEEN EDEA AND KRIBI.
Almost 40 Anglophones (North West, South West) are currently arrested by the security forces at the SWISS FARM PALM D’OR, a large palm plantation located between Edea and Kribi.
According to our sources, yesterday there was an altercation between two agents of African Security and Anglophone workers. Eventually an anglophone died. A situation that resulted in a revolt of the members of this community which has more than 200 employees on these plantations.
They stood up this Friday and decided to fight with the agents of African Security and their accomplices. New clashes have begun. Soon, the army, the gendarmerie and the police intervened and arrested more than forty anglophones and severely beaten some.
