NCC Bans 03 Media Organs, Slams Severe Sanctions on 16 Others

Peter Esoka: NCC President
Sharks play a very important role in the oceans in a way that an average fish does not. This is so because sharks are at the top of the food chain in virtually every part of every ocean. In the Cameroon media landscape that role is bestowed on the National Communication Council-NCC which plays the role of media watchdog. Like the shark, NCC may not have been selective on who to prey on very efficiently. Though the shark uses intimidation to regulate the behavior of prey species, and prevent them from overgrazing vital habitats, NCC depends on sanctions to normalize the media in Cameroon. Yet expressionists have expressed fears that NCC may turn out to be a menace to Press freedom.   The National Council of Communication on Tuesday slammed  severe sanctions on 16 media organs. Also affected are some journalists who were sanctioned for alleged “unsubstantiated publications, offensive and insinuating statements.
The most severe sanctions were slammed on three French language Newspapers, Aurore, Aurore Plus and Dépêche du Cameroun and their promoters Michel Michaut Moussala and Gilbert Avang respectively who were accused of alleged “repeated publication of unfounded allegations.  
It should be noted that for the first time, NCC warned one of its member in the person of the editor of the weekly Kalara, Christophe Bobiokono. Besides,
In the same vein, and unprecedentedly, the state media outfit (CRTV) received a warning while one of its journalists Marie Irene Ndzana Fouda was slammed a month suspension for violating professional ethics. Over 16 journalists and media outfits were affected. One English Language Newspaper was affected. Cameroon Herald newspaper was slammed with a six month suspension, alongside its Publisher, Kingsley Ako. Also suspended for a period of six months are French language newspapers; Le Soir and publisher Mr Armand Mbianda, La Scene and publisher Mr Christian Emok, L’Epervier and publisher Mr Clovis Leopold Noudjio

President Buhari's Daughter Gets New Wedding Date... See Details

A new date has been announced for the wedding ceremony between President Muhammadu Buhari's daughter, Zahra and Ahmed Indimi.
Zahra Buhari
 A new date has reportedly been fixed for the wedding of President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Zahra, Punch reports.
 Following the sudden postponement of the wedding, the families have now chosen the 16th of December for the wedding ceremony.  
 According to the message on the invite, the wedding will take place in Abuja.
 “H.E Haj Aisha M Buhari cordially invites you to the wedding Fatiha of her daughter Zahra Buhari and Ahmed Indimi which will take place on December 16th while the Kamu will take place in Abuja. Details of the events will be communicated to you,” the invite states.
 It was reported last week that the wedding was cancelled as a result of President Buhari’s insistence on a low-key wedding for the 21-year-old bride to be. It was gathered that Buhari was not happy with the media attention following announcement of the 30 Louis Vuitton bags to Zahra on the media.
 It was widely reported that the groom, Ahmed Indimi, had presented bags, worth about £120,000 (N47,144,502), to the bride ahead of the wedding.
 Indimi who is the marketing director of Oriental energy resources performed the introduction ceremony earlier at the Aso Villa, Abuja on Friday, November 18.
 Whether the wedding will hold this time around is left for all to see.

Female Councilor Weds in a Shrine

 A female lawmaker has caused a stir after she wedded her husband inside a shrine presided by traditional healers.

Ruth Nakamatte married her heartrob at the shrine
 
According to reports from Uganda, a popular female Councillor has wedded her man inside a shrine in their village. The woman identified as Ruth Nakamatte exchanged marital vows with her fiancee, Buyondo Manyigaalubaale in an elaborate ceremony.
 The marriage was presided over by the heads of the traditional healer's in Uganda. Although the controversial decision has stirred controversy, the Mukono Central Division female youth councilor, doesn't seem bothered.
 The event presided over by the two traditional healers, Kabona Jjumba Aligaweesa and Kabona Kayondo Nyongeraako held at the traditional healers' headquarters at Ttakajjunge village in Nama sub-county in Mukono district on Sunday. 
 
 
Nakamatte was baptized in church and named Ruth but she denounced it to adopt Namukasa. Buyondo was the first to enter the shrine which was filled by a number of traditional healers and their followers from across the country. Nakamatte, a professional nurse is a daughter of Mukono Central division National Resistance Movement (NRM) chairman Ssalongo Male Bakipakampulawa of Ntaawo village in Mukono Municipality. 
 Nakamatte arrived dressed in a wedding gown which she later changed to wear a backcloth dress.  Unlike the past where traditional healers where known to be operating in darkness, this time they did everything in broad day light. They also had recorded music and melodious singers who performed music interludes of the tunes praising the African culture.
 
 They were only heard singing four choruses of traditional songs with drums only once as they were starting the service. They made the marriage vows; a service led by Kabona Jjumba whereby the vows were for good and for worse, New Vision Uganda reported.

Amazing: Five Important Things You Didn't Know the New WhatsApp Could Do

Earlier this year, WhatsApp announced that it had a user base of more than one billion; that is, one in seven people on earth, as people all over the world have been using WhatsApp for numerous purposes.
One of the world's most popular messaging app, Whatsapp, has added a host of new features with improved speed, security, reliability and simplicity. 
 WhatsApp has also just added a video-calling feature to the app after a series of beta tests. A rise in the app called Snapchat and its Stories feature, from Instagram to Facebook, and now even WhatsApp has tried to clone it.
 In the new WhatsApp’s Beta app on iOS and Android, there is a new ‘Status’ tab where the ‘Stories’ can be put and seen before it disappears 24 hours later. The new ‘Stories’ feature is only available to a select few who operate on a jailbroken Apple device or a rooted Android smartphone.
 The messaging app just updated its messaging app on iOS and has made it possible for users to send and receive GIFs. Though a bit late to the game, it actually does a little more than just supporting animations. Users can send GIFs stored in the device memory as well as search Giphy’s large library and find animations to make your chats interesting.
 All these new features to stay relevant in the ever-changing tech world have made WhatsApp even more popular. The company earlier announced that it manages over 100 million voice calls every day on the app, that makes it more than 1,100 calls per second. It has even upgraded the desktop versions of the app.
 Here are five latest features that you can try out in WhatsApp:
 
1. Video calling
 
WhatsApp just confirmed that it is rolling out the video calling feature across Android, iOS and Windows. You will now be able to see ‘Video Call’ and ‘Voice Call’ choices when you tap the top dialler button. A new dialog giving the option between a standard voice call and a video call will appear.
 
2. GIFs
 
The messaging app has rolled out support for GIFs support for iOS users with the latest version of the app. The 2.16.16 update allows you to send videos (six seconds or shorter) and Live Photos and GIFs. You can search the Giphy library to search for GIFs to send to your friends on your WhatsApp.
 
3. Tag
 
You can now tag others in the contacts within a WhatsApp group. You will be able to do the tag even if the people have muted the conversation. You can avail this feature by typing @ and click on the contact you wish to tag from the appearing list.
 
4. Picture edit
 
In the new update of WhatsApp, you can doodle on as well as edit on the photos before sending them to your friends. When the conversation tab is opened, you can tap on the camera button and click on the image from the camera. You will get a few icons on the top right, and you can choose to either crop the photo, draw a doodle, enter a text or a sticker to the photo. Then the picture message is ready to be sent.
 
5. Most viewed
 
There is an interesting feature in WhatsApp, although sadly it is only available to Apple devices as of now. Android owners may have to wait for a while. If you have iOS, you can go to ‘Settings’ and then select ‘Account’ and then ‘Storage Usage’. There, you will be able to see the total number of messages at the top of the page and also a list of chats, which are ranked according to the number of messages sent to the number. This helps you see who is your ‘best friend’, as in, to which contact have you spoken the maximum number of lines.

Prof. Wole Soyinka Reacts to Social Media Attacks, Embarassed Nigerians are Imbeciles, Morons

 Wole Soyinka has threatened to leave Nigeria following a barrage of criticisms faced in the media for threatening to shred his US Green Card.

 
Wole Soyinka
 Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka has threatened to exit Nigeria as a response to the media harassment to which Nigerians have subjected him.
 Speaking to reporters yesterday at a media event held at Freedom Park on Lagos Island, Mr. Soyinka, winner of the 1986 Nobel Prize for literature, said he was embarrassed to share a country with some "imbeciles and morons."
 He said, "I should not be exiting the United States but Nigeria because the people on behalf of whom one has struggled all one’s life can be so slavish in mentality as to start querying the right of their champion to free speech."
 He continued, "I am embarrassed to occupy the same space as some imbeciles and morons," adding that the exit from Nigeria can be "internal" or "external".
 Mr. Soyinka, a retired professor from Obafemi Awolowo University and numerous universities in the U.K. and US, also threatened to move the residency of his foundation, the Wole Soyinka Foundation, out of Nigeria and dared anybody to criticize his decision.
 "If the board agrees," he said, "I will move the residency of my foundation out of the country," he said.
 He added that on the inauguration of the US president-elect, Donald Trump, he would hold a private funeral wake to mourn the death of common sense in Nigeria.
 The Nobel laureate expressed irritation at many Nigerians who had taken to the social media to criticize his comment to leave the United States of America and tear his green card after Mr. Trump was declared winner in the November 8, 2016 presidential election in the US.

Jesus Christ's Tomb Opened for First Time in 500 Years - See What is Inside (Photos)

Source: tori.ng
The tomb believed to be the place Jesus Christ was buried has now been opened for the first time in 500 years.
The tomb was opened for the first time in 500 years
 
The tomb believed to be the place where Jesus was laid has been opened for the first time in centuries, The Independent reveals. The tomb has been sealed in marble since the 1500s in order to prevent visitors from stealing pieces as relics. 
 For decades, archaeologists and theologians have debated over whether the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is the site where Christ was supposedly buried and resurrected after being crucified.  
 Over the preceding centuries, the famous church had been destroyed and rebuilt so many times that experts were left unsure about whether the tomb had been moved and what it might contain.
 However, they have made shocking discoveries after lifting the tomb's marble for the first time in 500 years. Researchers were amazed to discover the limestone shelf where Jesus’s body was thought to have been placed, the Mirror reported.
 Also discovered, was a second grey marble slab previously unknown to the researchers, engraved with a cross they believe was carved in the 12th century by the Crusaders.
 
 
Archaeologist Fredrik Hiebert of National Geographic, a partner in the project, said: “The most amazing thing for me was when we removed the first layer of dust and found a second piece of marble.
“This one was grey, not creamy white like the exterior, and right in the middle of it was a beautifully inscribed cross. We had no idea that was there.
 “The shrine has been destroyed many times by fire, earthquakes, and invasions over the centuries. We didn’t really know if they had built it in exactly the same place every time.
“But this seems to be visible proof that the spot the pilgrims worship today really is the same tomb the Roman Emperor Constantine found in the 4th century and the Crusaders revered. It’s amazing.
“When we realised what we had found my knees were shaking a little bit.”
 According to Christian scripture, Jesus died on the cross and buried for three days before rising from the dead.
 Upon opening the ancient tomb, religious leaders from the Greek and Armenian Orthodox churches and the Franciscan monks, who share responsibility for the church, were the first to enter the tomb. 
 
 
Mr Hiebert added: They came out with big smiles on their face. Then the monks went in and they were all smiling.
 “We were all getting really curious. Then we went in, looked into the tomb, and saw a lot of rubble. So it wasn’t empty, even though there were no artefacts or bones.”
 Researchers have been involved in discussions as to whether or not the tomb could be opened for vital repairs since 1959, but the committee has faced difficulty in coming to an agreement. 
 Mr Hiebert said: “Everything has to be approved by the committee, so even changing a candle takes a long time.
”There is a ladder by the main entrance to the church that hasn’t moved in 240 years and they still haven’t reached a decision. It’s called the immovable ladder. 
 “So the fact we were finally allowed to carry out this work is a triumph of negotiation.”
 Experts used ground penetrating radar and thermographic scanners, conservation experts gathered information on the insides of the tomb before unsealing it. The data is so extensive it will take months to analyse, but the team hope to create a virtual reconstruction for public viewing.

Latest Gossip from Camer. The Evil that People Do..Writtam-pen is Back

 By Writtam-pen

Country people, I hope you have heard the latest? I hear manners have starting falling from heaven. Popol and Yang have decided to dole out CFA 2 billion as Christmas gift to lay private and denominational schools yet the Anglophone Teachers Union says nay to the gift. They have rejected the gifts on grounds that there are no legal bindings as well as mechanism for reinforcement. PM Yang spent two days in Bamenda to dialogue with Teachers, Lawyers, and Civil Society from 25th and 26th November 2016 but while back in Yaounde, Yang and his boss provided a very wrong solution to the problem posed by the leaders. 
You know Popoul always thinks he is very smart when it comes to solving problems. He thought that by announcing that government will recruited 1000 “bilingual teachers” trade unionists will surely issue tons of motions of support to him or organize Thank You marches nationwide but he got it very wrong. Chai!!!!!! Cameroon is really a rogue state!!!! This regime is really good at creativity. While university students are still waiting for Chinese laptops, Popoul and co have introduced a new trick, android bilingual teachers. The question many have been asking is whether these bilingual teachers will come from space or Mars. Popular opinion holds that if there's anyone who is bitter about our president's cronies and takes some of the statements they make seriously and some of their rash decisions at heart, all you have to do is listen to the North West CPDM Elite(s) to realize that many of them are either joking or high on banana leaves and afofo... Na thing to just laugh!!!Who cares if CPDM march in Buea, they should not march but run. I remember the people marched against multi-party politics in this country?
Popoul is surely going to sign a devastating decree any of these days. Some of them will be sacked from government. Others will go on retirement. What is however very interesting is that PM Yang has started his cleanup on a left leg. What a kangaroo solution to the problem of Anglophones.
Country people have you ever seen where someone took petrol to pour on fire? That is what Nolava did in the University of Buea. Students were beaten, robbed in shit, cases of rape even reported. I doubt whether Nalova and Okalia Bilia will survive the storm in Popoul’s tea cup for transforming the university campus into a military camp. Teachers have issued a statement demanding their sacking as one of the preconditions.  Popol’s advisers are short of ideas; they could freely borrow from Mbangfon Nick Ngwanyam ideas.
I hear John Ntarinkon was very bitter about what transpired in Buea to the point he wants to make political capital of the incident. SDF senators, MPs and Mayors are waxing mussels to stage another peaceful march in Buea today. Hahahahahaha, your writtam-pen also gathered that John Ntarinkon has opted for Federalism as a panacea to the present deadlock. Don’t be surprised to hear that John Ntarinkon starts talking like SCNC activists. If it happens then Popol will only have himself to blame because John Ntarinkon has been very patient all this while. I saw sadness on John Ntarinkon’s forehead when gear gas was fired into his residence.
The Shakespeare mayor of Buea organized a public talk to calm tempers in Buea Just like John Ntarinkon and Lele did in Bamenda who asked for the unconditional release of Benji, the co-demonstrator of the Bamenda Coffin wahala.
The Bamenda man will never forget Mancho Bibixy and Benji like Late Pefok. I am struck by the telling points, to the effect that what we just witnessed. After all, what sort of plot doesn’t have leaders (or rather those who were described as such weren’t leading anyone), a common purpose, a plan or anything that could be described as a policy agenda.
What Fame Ndongo was trying to achieve was foul-tasting. The near impossibility of any purpose and the lack of tools to achieve them defined the uselessness of facts that this man whose name I have just forgotten is the first accused.  Do you know what happens around university cycles? The only plan that existed seems to have been an attempt to summon spirits from the vastly deep to get rid of the Anglo saxon sub system. But, though any man or woman can summon spirits, only an organised one can ensure they arrive. Now that Popoul is very disappointed with them, I am sure his signature will send some of them packing.  I really smell a cabinet shakeup. There abounds speculations and suspicions, dismay and dismal, surrounding this but even as the earth rotates into a new horizon oblivious of this occurrence in this tiny dot on the globe, there abounds the fact that a disturbing memory has been embedded in the minds of volatile witnesses in such a mystery that even Taylor swift would find it hard to shake it off.
The Nigerian Super Falcons flied the sky of Yaounde  to create the unexpected at the last minute chopping the Lionesses at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium to emerge champions of Africa for the 8th time. The presence of President Biya and wife, Chantou did not in any way intimidated Desire Oparanozie, who fired the lone goal that saw the Falcons beat the Indomitable Lionesses. I hear Cameroon lost at the finals not because the girls were not fit but that the Gods were angry following police and Gendarme brutality in Buea and Bamenda recently.
