Prof. Gervais Mendo Ze
Former General Manager of Cameroon Radio Television, Prof. Gervais Mendo Ze has been arrested. The former GM who served as Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Communication from 2005 to 2007 was napped and transferred to the  Kondengui Maximum Prison for allegedly embezzled over FCFA 2.6 billion when he was General Manager. It should be recalled that Prof. Gervais Mendo Ze served as GM at CRTV from 1998 to 2005. According to classified sources, the former GM was transferred to Kondegui after appearing infront of the Special Criminal Court on embezzlement charges.  Currently the traditional ruler of Otoakam village-Sangmelima, the arrest of Gervais Mendo Ze has ignited panic in the nation’s capital. He was arrested alongside three other accomplices and a warrant has been issued for one other. Classified sources say over 20 other state agents and civil servants are connected and will be napped. 
Classified sources say some 12 high profile personalities have been shortlisted for arrest. It is even alleged that a cabinet shakeup is imminent given that some sitting ministers have been shortlisted. A classified source hinted that some marabouts have been spotted in Yaounde as an atmosphere of uncertainty looms large..on Who Next?

However, public opinion is skeptical on the arrest given that it has taken too long. Another school of thought holds that it is intended to divert public attention as government is scared after the “Blaise” saga.
