Tongues are waging in Nkambe, Divisional Headquarters of Donga Mantung following a communiqué issued by the Senior Divisional Officer, Ngone Ndodemesape Bernard calling on the Divisional Delegate of Public Contracts-MINMAP, Chin Emmanuel to resume his post with immediate effect. Fear and consternation is reported to have gripped stakeholders and vote-holders when the communiqué was aired on local radio stations. Reports say the where-about of the Divisional Delegate became a topic of discussion in “sha” and “nfiang” drinking spots as well as drinking parlours giving that he was more of a visiting delegate than resident. Yet it is alleged that those who are closer to him know MINMAP Delegate as someone who visits his office once in a blue moon and or is spotted only when he has pressing issues to handle (note contractors, et cetera). It is feared that the execution of Public Investment Budget-PIB in Donga Mantung is likely to be the lowest nationwide. Last year, Donga Mantung was ranked as the lowest in the North West Region, a situation that has sparked worry amongst the populace. Allegations are rife some beneficiary communities were threatening to move to the streets to express their disgust. Yet, the depending doom was rescued by the communiqué by Donga Mantung SDO. However, classified source say Chin Emmanuel was spotted in Nkambe yesterday. When contacted, the SDO confirmed that the Divisional Delegate regained his office yesterday Thursday July 3rd. Notwithstanding, a school of thought holds that there is a tussle of interest as to who should award contracts.
