Tribute to Hon. Talla Kwalar by Shu Fai Njilahngotong



“As it was written”

Here we lay to rest the man Pa Kwalar, Hon. Kwalar, Section President, cooperative President, adviser to Kings, Fons, Fais, Elites, the young, the old and even the unborn, the list is long.
Hon. Kwalar
In 1964m I found myself doing dishes for him and late Pa Barthson, and from then till date, I know him better, and better here means knowing him more and littler. He was a man who kept growing in knowledge as advanced in age and never was he ever defeated. To the best of my knowledge and to many of us, Pa died as Section President for CPDM because he was never beaten at an election. He created the Donga Mantung II Section, and ruled it, and died a “Section President”. He was politics and politics was him. He sacrificed for it and his house became the house of political meetings, to the CPDM, he gave his family. His politics was pure and to him everybody was a man and woman and then politics came after. Unlike today that politics is dividing Wimbum people. He drank and ate with everybody. Today people of the same party don’t even talk to each other. What a shame! Here lies politics in that box and then goes politics away. Can we learn?
To Pa Kwalar, he shared more than he acquired, what a man, what a myth. Pa, you have gone away and how I wish that it was us to either say yes or no.

Founder of Champions Royal Assembly, Joshua Iginla, Releases Own rPophecies for 2018

Abuja-based pastor has released his prophecies for 2018, and revealed what God told him about President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar, Governor Fayose, and more.

 
Joshua Iginla
 
Speaking while addressing his church members in Abuja, the founder Champions Royal Assembly, Joshua Iginla, released his prophecies for 2018, saying that God told him that President Muhammadu Buhari will know his real enemies who are close to him this year.
 
The clergyman disclosed further that he sees Buhari embarking on an impromptu journey, stressing that the president would not be poisoned, and urged the former Vice President to pray that forces greater than him don’t push him out of the race.
 
He also said the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose should spend more time pursuing the Vice President or senate ambition than “the number one seat.”
 
He said, “In 2018, the President of Nigeria will finally know his Judas, they will be so exposed that he will be amazed. I see an Impromptu journey like it happened in 2017 that would to medical vacation again.
 
“For his Excellency, you will not be poisoned, there are many snakes around you but you will not die on the throne. They are closed to you like the cloth you put on.
 
“I see a major shake up in the cabinet and some sensitive people will go. There will be a lot of defection from APC to other parties and from PDP to other parties and these are powerful leaders that would be aggrieved.
 
“Senate President should pray because hard times are coming in 2018. I see important politicians, key players in politics and seasoned business men should avoid flocking together in aircraft. I see plane crash, call it mechanical fault or set up before 2019.
 
“Atiku should pray that his presidential ambition is not twatted by forces stronger than him out of the race.
 
“EFCC will make major exploits that will shock people this year, it would be different from what we know last year.
 
“Fayose should spend more time pursuing the Vice President or Senate ambition than the number one seat.”

George Weah to Be Sworn-in on January 22

Liberian Senator and 2017 presidential candidate, George Weah, has received his certificate of return from the nation's electoral body ahead of his swearing-in.
 
George Weah
 
Liberia’s National Elections Commission, NEC, has presented certificate of return to the President-elect, George Weah; Vice President-elect, Jewel Howard-Taylor, and the newly elected members of the House of Representatives.
 
The Chairman of NEC, Jerome Korkoya, performed the ceremony at the commission’s headquarters in Monrovia on Thursday evening.
 
According to local media, 66 out of the 73 elected lawmakers were certificated, leaving out seven who are facing legal challenges over their election in the October 10 general polls.
 
The new leaders will be sworn in on January 22, which is the third working Monday of January as stipulated in the Liberian Constitution.
 
Speaking at the occasion, the NEC boss reminded the newly elected public officers of the huge responsibility that comes with the mantle of leadership entrusted to them.
 
“The certificate we are presenting to you represents conferral of legitimacy to pronounce you to the world as the duly elected officials.
 
“”It is also an embodiment of the power, trust and aspiration reposed in you by your various constituents and the people of Liberia as a whole.
 
“Expectations are high to change the people’s living conditions through the laws, policies and programmes of the incoming government."
 
He acknowledged the contributions of international partners including ECOWAS, AU, USAID, EU and UNDP, which led to the successful conduct of the elections.
 
 
Mr. Korkoya expressed appreciation to all contestants in the elections for respecting the rule of law by exploring judicial means to seek redress after the elections.
 
The president-elect, George Weah, described his election as a unifying factor in the country.
 
Mr. Weah pledged to fulfil his campaign promised of improving the lives of Liberians, calling on members of the legislature to put aside politics and work in the interest of the country.
 
“I went to Boakai (outgoing Vice President) not to make news but because campaign is over and it is time to do the Liberian people’s work.
 
“Our quest is for all Liberians to work together to move our country forward; in the interest of the people let’s work,” he said.
 
The president-elect reiterated his assurance of greater freedoms, saying he would not interfere with the tenants of democracy, especially political dissent.
 
“I am your friend but my interest is the Liberian people.
 
“Any attempt to promote clampdown on the political rights of fewer Liberians has the propensity of disuniting the country,” he said.
 
Speaking on behalf of the elected lawmakers, the current Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hans Barchue, promised to work with the CDC-led government.
 
In separate remarks, members of the international community present at the occasion restated their commitment to support the incoming administration.
 
 
The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General, Farid Zarif, lauded Liberians for their peaceful participation in the electoral process.
 
Mr. Zarif called on the new administration to build on the gains made under the leadership of outgoing President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
 
He urged the new government to properly manage the country’s abundant natural resources to improve the lives of Liberians.
 
“Let me quote you Mr. President-elect that it doesn’t make sense that Liberia is so rich, yet its people are so poor.
 
“That is the beginning of another vision. Let’s bring the two things together,” he said.

Israel Issues "90 Days Ultimatum" to African Migrants

Israel is set to inform thousands of Africans who entered the country illegally that they have three months to leave or face indefinite imprisonment.

People from Eritrea and Sudan make up a significant number of migrants in Israel
 The Israeli government has issued a notice for thousands of African migrants to leave the country or face imprisonment.
 
The migrants will be given up to $3,500 (£2,600) for leaving within the next 90 days.
 
They will be given the option of going to their home country or third countries.
 
If they do not leave, the Israeli authorities have threatened that they will start jailing them from April.
 
The UN refugee agency said the controversial plan violated international and Israeli laws.
 
The Israeli government says their return will be humane and "voluntary".
 
The order exempts children, elderly people, and victims of slavery and human trafficking.
 
A spokesperson for Israel's Population and Immigration Authority told the BBC there were currently 38,000 "infiltrators" in Israel, of whom just 1,420 were being held in detention facilities.
 
Israel uses the term "infiltrators" to describe people who did not enter the country through an official border crossing.
 
Many of the migrants - who are mostly from Eritrea and Sudan - say they came to Israel to seek asylum after fleeing persecution and conflict, but the authorities regard them as economic migrants.
 
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed that an unchecked influx of African migrants could threaten Israel's Jewish character.

Donga Mantung Bids Farewell to Hon. Talla Kwalar


Hon.Talla Kwalar

On January 6, 2018, Donga Mantung people paid their last respect to one of its political encyclopedias Hon. Talla Kwalar. Thousands who travelled from far and near to pay homage to the departed hero came because everyone had something to tell about the man. The Ndu municipal stadium was jammed to capacity as everyone wanted to see for his/herself that truly Pa TK (Hon. Talla Kwalar) as he was fondly called was taking a journey to the land of no return(ancestral land).
In fact everyone who matter in Donga Mantung Division was there; from the rich to the poor, the old and the young, Christians to traditionalists. Not the dreaded “Nwarong” could afford to miss to say farewell the the most renowned “Tantoh” of Ndu. Those who didn’t have the opportunity to make speeches poured their farewell in eulogies and others who could afford to write a eulogy did it in songs and dance. Everyone wanted to bid him a befitting farewell.
In a tribute to the departed hero, H.E Shey Jones Yembe (Representing the Central Committee of the CPDM) said the last standing political baobab in the recent history of Ndu has fallen in the name of Hon. Talla Kwalar. “I grew up to see him, to learn about him and to know him. I eventually worked with him, collaborated with him in the grand struggle to improve the quality of lives of our people in these parts”. To Shey Jones, the total gamut of achievements and the title deeds Hon. Talla Kwalar is left are the things that make him a political baobab. “Two qualities stand out clearly in my mind in characterizing the man lying down here humbly before us; Qualities that are admirable and Qualities worthy of emulation.” The two qualities he added are loyalty and generosity. “In considering loyalty, I call to mind loyalty to his friends namely to late Hon. Abel Tawong Ngala; late Hon. Samuel Ngeh Tamfu and late Evaristus Barthson( the renowned trade unionist) together with whom he worked intimately, hand in-glove to bring significant progress to Ndu and Donga Mantung Division”. He continued that Hon. Kwalar remained steadfast in his loyalty to the head of state, to the national institutions and to the CPDM. “Even on his sick bed, he remained firm in his belief and loyalty! He has always possessed a no-nonsense attitude about the respect of national institutions at all times.” According to H.E Shey Jones “this at once earned him both admiration and resentment and antagonism by those who failed to understand him”.
Harping on Hon. Kalwar’s generosity, She Jones Yembe emphasized that Hon. Kwalar was known to be the man of legendary generosity. “Even as children we grew up to know that if you could pluck up courage to go and greet the man, you were sure to receive a gift of something. He was a man who believed that the art of political adulation lay in having a generous hand, impacting lives no matter the level”. He recalled that it was common knowledge that many destitute students would go to Hon. Kwalar for assistance, and that he never got tired of helping within the ambit of his means.”
Talking to journalists after the burial Hon. Awudu Mbaya (Quaestor at the National Assembly) said that he will remember Hon. Talla Kwalar as he remembers Hon. SN Tamfu, Hon. Peter Ngi Nsakwa, Pa A T Ngala,(one of the first MP) and JT Ndzi. “These are people who practiced politics of development, politics of love and politics of nationalism. They had the people at heart and they did not practice politics of bitterness”. Hon. Awudu also revealed that Hon. Talla Kwalar was a cheerful giver and loves sharing without questioning the political leniency of others. “Each time we met at Malehleh where we will eat goat meat, you can never ever imagine that we are of different political parties. I would visit him and he visits me. In fact, every time I met with him we will share ideas because great people discuss ideas and not people. They don’t insult each others. So he is great man”. Hon. Awudu added that he is praying on the Almighty to make him be a great man as well to overcome all these petite politics of hatred. “I pray God to give me the talent to surpass to reach a level in politics, loving everyone and forgiving one another. I have forgiven people long ago all what they did to me and I continue to forgive them.” He said Hon. Talla Kwalar was a servant leader because “wherever he went he took leadership, he never waited for anyone to tell him to do this or that. That is what in some cases I attempt to but maybe due to some of my shortcomings I cannot reach to that but I pray to God to give me that possibility of measuring to that aptitude wherever I find myself”.
Abdou Borno Kamfon described Hon. Talla Kwalar as a politician with a difference. “He was so tolerant. Though he was in the heart of the opposition, he taught us how to be tolerant in politics. He worked so hard and invested his time, energy and means to implant the CPDM here in Ndu”. Abdou Borno emphasized that it is thanks to the dynamism of Hon. Kwalar that there is the CPDM party in Ndu. “Though the opposition is still leading here, during the last elections together with him, we worked so hard and we moved up to 43%. And I think the shoes that he has left for us behind for us are too big. We are still learning and will always go back to the advices he gave us to move with those shoes. To sum it all, Abdou Borno said the history of politics and development in Ndu can never be written without giving Hon. Kwalar the pride of place given that he is leaving an indelible mark of greatness.
Ndansi Elvis Nukam (Yali Fellow) said he will remember Hon. Talla Kwalar as one of the astute politicians in the history of Donga Mantung Division. “When some of us came into limelight in politics at the age of 23, we heard those names and we were so concerned that we have such caliber of personalities that have left a legacy when even he was still alive. He got all the appreciations of all what he did to his people not as eulogy. That is the best thing that can happen to a human being”. Ndansi Elvis described Hon. Kwalar as a generous politician and someone who was people oriented. “He cared much for his people to the point that nothing meant more to him than the development of the area where he came from. I think that is one of the think I emulate from his political life that is you should be people-centered. We heard all what he did in term of education, he also heard about how he lobbied for the tarring of the Ntumbaw-Ntaba road when we couldn’t dreamed of such  and I think he will be remembered as one of those who orchestrated for Ndu to become a sub division”. To Ndansi Elvis, Hon. Talla Kwalar’s legacies are a bunch of lessons to the younger generation of politicians of Donga Mantung Division. His examples he added, are worthy of emulation.
On the other hand, Emmanuel Bongnjo Kwalar (son) said his dad was his mentor, a master of public relations, a pacifier and an expert in conflict resolution. “He was a mentor. He has not only planted in me but has done so with all of his children and other people in Wimbum land the spirit of leadership. As his son, I can never fit in his shoes but I will try to walk on his shoe path to make sure that what I do will be a similitude of what he did”.

Hon. Talla Kwalar:
The Father, Politician, Educationist, Pacifier, Servant leader and Development Luminary  
 
 Here is the synopsis of a man who thousands have described as fatherly father to everyone. Born in January 1933 in Mbah village, Ndu sub Division into the family of Ta- Kwalar and Mami Ntala (all of blessed memory) Hon. Talla Kwalar began his primary education at the Cameroon Baptist Mission (CBM Belo) in 1945 while living with his elder brother JM Kwalar. In 1946 he moved to CBM Babanki Tongo and in 1947 he moved back to CBM Belo while year later he moved to CBM Ndu and continued until 1953. The quest to know the whiteman ways took him to the Baptist Bible Training Centre (now known as Cameroon Baptist Theological Seminary-CBTS Ndu) where he spent two years (1953-1955). Upon graduation he was recruited as a teacher by CBM and posted to Wowo where he served from 1955-1958. From 1958-1969, he was tax clerk at the Nkambe Divisional council. The end of 1969, he made his debut in politics as he was elected CNU Sub-Section President, a position he held till 1980. Still in 1969, Hon. Kwalar was elected councilor at the Nkambe Divisional Council, a position which he held until 1975. Beside that in 1969, he was also elected President of the Nkambe Area Cooperative Union Limited until 1980. During that period, he also enrolled at the National Cooperative College Bamenda where he later obtained a certificate in cooperative management and was auditor of the Divisonal trade union as well as Chairman of the Mbiyeh Rural Council (the then Tang Clan council).
In the domain of sports, between 1969 and 1980, Hon. Kwalar was also a member of the Central Committee of the Cameroon Football Federation(FECAFOOT).
From 1980-1982, he started climbing the political ladder. It was during that period that he was elected CNU Wimbum Sub Section President and later became 1st Deputy Municipal administration of the then Nkambe rural council from 1982-1988. When the CPDM was created, he was pioneer CPDM Sub Section President, Wimbum Sub Section from 1985-1996 and later Section President for Donga Mantung II Ndu from 1996-2015 when he retired from active politics.
In the education sector, it should be recalled that the early 80s, Hon. Kwalar was the sole proprietor of the biggest private education institution in Donga Mantung known as Ndu Comprehensive College-NCC that offered young men and women the possibility of going to college.
His life as a politician began in 1988 during the famous “green and khaki” list system. Contesting on the same “green list” with Hon. SN Tamfu of Nkambe, Hon. JK Ntoi of Ako and Hon. Buinda of Nwa, they emerged victorious as their list crushed the khaki list made up of Hon. Peter Ngi Nsakwa of Nkambe, Mr. Anderson Voh of Nwa and Mr. Joseph Eika Maah of Misaje. While in parliament, Hon. Kwalar was member of the committee on foreign affairs (1988-1996).
