Fru Ndi Acknowledges Politicians Have Failed, Urges Civil Society to Take Chance

 Ni John Fru Ndi, the National Chairman of the leading opposition in Cameroon has declared that the civil society has to take the chance as the Biya regime is collapsing to resolve the problems of Cameroon. SDF National Chairman made the statement in an interview published today, June 28, 2012 by a Bamenda based newspaper (The Independent Observer). According to Ni John Fru Ndi, Marafa's letters and the recent arrests and indictment of some government officials are glaring examples of a confused regime that functions without conscience. "If Mr. Biya were true to himself and had a conscience and with all the revelations Marafa has made, he would have resigned to make way for justice to take it course". Yet, Fru Ndi after reading Marafa's letters, he observed that he (Marafa) was "selling after the market". He also observed that he (Marafa) had "Presidential ambitions and Mr. Biya is jailing him for that". Accordingly, Fru Ndi also hammered that Mr. Biya does not like challenge and "That is why we supported the idea of our lawyers defending Marafa so that he could have a fair trial.
On his inability to address burning issues like he used to do in the early 90s, Ni John Fru Ndi said, at his age, he is no more the person that should be everywhere. "The Civil Society should take the lead and effect the necessary change in Cameroon". Yet political pundits are of the opinion that Ni John Fru indirectly acknowledged that politicians have failed and Cameroonians should look forth at the civil society. Another School of thought holds that the Biya regime is gaining grounds with its major realisation programme that is gradually transforming the country into a vast construction site.
