Cameroon Diaspora: Valetudinarians Who Cannot Claim Freedom.


In 1987 I met a patient in Hôpital Bonaberi. There were ten people per room. On the opposite row slept five patients and the beds were numbered from 1-10. Number 1-5 have died and it would seem the spirit of death was taking people by their turns. Monsieur François was bed #8. He could not walk but could entertain a conversation all day long until you start to wonder what type of patient he was. People said he was faking but the doctor said he was paralyzed from waist to toes. When death crossed to our row #8 requested to be moved to another room. But before he left we had bonded together as good friends because I was #9. #7 died and # 8 moved and I was discharged the same day Monsieur François was transferred to another room. Two weeks later he died. That is the same way the Cameroonian Diaspora is; paralyzed from waist to toes; it is on western sickbed but running its mouth all day long.

They write rubbish over the net, take all pseudonyms and sobriquets to threaten the government and real freedom fighters. They brag on what they will do to the government but as you know they are toothless bulldogs with scabies. It is a shame when the goat bleats at strangers while the house dog sits unconcerned.

Most of them living abroad know that they have been stealing from the government by taking salaries while living abroad. If they dare step foot in Cameroon and raise their voices their records will be unearth and Opération Epervier will swallow them. Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed!

Most of them who have reached the high level of eruditeness, know that the transcripts they entered into colleges were those fake transcripts that were doctored. Their mischief may be in a Pandora Box but not without a key. Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed!

Most who are working as nurses (CNA, LPN or RN) know that they are fake nurses whose home qualification are all fake and that standing at the forefront of fighting the government they may be stamping their foot into their mouth. Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed!

Most of them are more corrupt than the president they try to remove from power. They cannot even conduct a transparent election in honesty. The Bakweri people are not up to 20 in Atlanta but they have three groups. Their Bakossi brothers are the same. Talk less of the Manyu people who cannot even hold a simple convention in peace. At least Biya holds his conventions in peace. Tell me which Anglophone group here abroad that has not had division or had arguments of embezzlement. Not even CAMSA (the student union) can escape. Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed!

Biya would be asking the people that if the SCNC is for you then why are they selling you asylum affidavits. These affidavits have made people to be on perpetual sickbeds that they cannot talk because they fear that serious gravedigging will expose their false claim of persecution, and will result in their repatriation to go face the monster they so fear. Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed!

Fake asylum files here and there. Even church ministers running away with the pretext the government is pursuing them. You and I know there is no religious persecution in Cameroon. The next minute they are in the government party. How? Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed.

Then those who are merely 419 cannot do anything. Even when they are persecuted they cannot stand for their rights because the American Police, FBI, and INS may be on their heels for deportation. Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed!

That is why they have resorted to “let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die”. Party here and party there; dance here and dance there. All they talk about is dance and dance while their brothers die in abject poverty. They crucify CPDM during the day but feast and dine with her at midnight. If the devil is the devil how do you mingle with him then? Their parents have been in perpetual bondage with a tunnel that seems far out of sight. Yet it matters less to them because they are valetudinarians. How can they make any meaningful change? Do you see why they sleep on their beds and run their mouths? They are paralyzed!

When you compare how much dishonest those in the Diaspora are, the palmarès of Paul Biya makes him resemble Saint Bartholomew. Our hands are not clean. He who comes into equity must come with clean hands.

Until then, get well and fight or forever remain in your bed and run your mouth.
