|French President: Hollande|
The Bible in Proverbs is an excellent source of wisdom regarding friends and truthful relationships. "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity" says (). "A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother" (). This is so because in perturbation time, a friend like an iron can easily sharpen another iron. At this point in time that Cameroon has launched a fierce war against Boko Haram, it is important we sound alarm bells on the double edge drama of France. Even though we have seen many of such sarcastic instances that beg for answers such as the arms and munitions seized from Boko Haram insurgent by Chadian soldiers which turn out to be French made, the publication of the famous list by a French Catholic NGO, and the most recent publication by Le Monde.fr (online) about the health of President Paul Biya, the question is why blow the trumpet over nothing. The angst ignited by this infamous publication both from opinion leaders and the common man in the street is indicative that Cameroon has developed thick skin against French manipulation. Like a toad place in a heating tube that keeps adapting to the changing temperatures, Cameroonians have learned to be serene. In fact this issue brings forth many questions which are begging for answers such as what do they want? I mean France.
Why is France making a storm in a tea cup? Cameroon is not a country of scandals. Implicitly, President Biya should have gone on tree tops to inform France that he wanted to go for medical checkup if it were so. Naturally, President Biya is not a super human and could fall sick as well.
Some people always believe that they have ultimate wisdom and truth over us. Seemingly this has been the position of France, but this time, they have mistaken a tree for a forest. Is La France trying to play the ostrich? If that is their wish or plan, then they have failed woefully. That is the reason why Cameroonians started questioning and reflecting on the position of France, when French made guns surfaced in the hands of Boko Haram insurgents. The question as to why French President Francios Hollande has remained mute over this issue abound high. Of course, we need not to go to TB Joshua to give us the answer.
A critical judgement analysis of the relationship Sarkozy-Biya, Hollande-Biya, we do not need the services of a soothsayer to mitigate the clear and present controversy. Now, they try to hide this secret. They try to hide who they really are. They change tactics, adopt out and try everything they can to keep their dirty little secret. But watch the pattern stay the same. We are reminded of it everyday. It boils down to this, in order for La France to maintain their privileged position of power, the colonizer, God fathers; they are systemically an eye on Cameroon. Eeh Longue Longue can tell it better. From a critical point of view, is this not to arrest development, and this is their area of expertise, the media. By now we should know who the enemy really is.
The disclaimer by Issa Tchiroma Bakary, Minister of Communication speaks volumes. And for once, Tchiroma spoke the minds of every Cameroonian. Public opinion in Cameroon however holds that this is an obnoxious plan to manipulate Cameroonians. Elvis Ngole Ngole is also of that opinion that it was a well calculated plan to distabilize Cameroon and it will not work. "This is a mercenary act" many have observed.
