Senators Demand Meva’a Meboutou Departure as SG

 At atmosphere of unfriendliness now looms in the Upper House as Senators say they won’t continue to contain the acts of insubordination by the Secretary General, Meva’a Meboutou. It is alleged that Meva’a Meboutou has arrogated to himself sweeping powers to the point that it is the President of the Senate, Marcel Niat Njifenji who comes down from the 5th floor to see him in office not vice-versa. Bureau members we gathered have also expressed their disgust at the inhuman treatment they have been receiving from their SG, Meva’a Meboutou. Classified sources say tension almost escalidated last week at the opening session but was watered down by Senate President Marcel Niat Njifenji.
 The problem we gathered is that senators have to wait for hours before they are received by the SG. Majority of them are threatening to stage a drama if someone else is not appointed. More so, senators are also complaining that the SG has transformed self to a demi-god. “It is really bad that we have been reduced to beggars. Our allowances and mission orders are hardly paid. It is more difficult to see the SG than to see the President”, one Senator hinted this reporter.
A school of thought holds that Meva’a’s age is also a problem given the workload and he is not as active as he was when young. Indeed, it is one of the major reasons behind poor performance of the senate; public opinion holds. It is even alleged that when the present SG was serving at the National Assembly, he clashed severally with House Speaker reasons why he was moved to the senate. The attitudes and age and of senators are some of the important factors that should have been taken into consideration before the appointment of the Secretary General yet it was ignored
