Manyu Does Not Need CDC; It Needs Roads!

The news that the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC) will start a rubber mill plantation in Manyu comes to me like a melodrama. Manyu after the unitary constitution has become an enclave. It has been abandoned by the government with no roads, insufficient teachers in schools, no major infrastructure. Timber has been siphoned by Frank Biya and others leaving the bush naked. Time and again the government has dangled the post of ministers to its elites who have been contented to struggle for it as they backbite and stab each other on the back. Aren’t the Manyu people good to be prime ministers and president? How many balls has Paul Biya got that the Manyu man does not have? Why must the Manyu people be contented for him to rule that country for 28 years and still hoping to add seven more as if it is his plantation? Now he wants to kill our people with pollution from a useless plantation.


Perhaps Paul Biya and the elites are testing our patience and resolve. Manyu needs roads and not CDC plantation. You see, they want to take the Manyu people for slavery finally. The Manyu people have been enslaved from afar before, but now they must be in shackles and manacles of the CDC plantations. In addition, they want to kill your main cash-crop and impoverish you intoto so you and your children will be begging for food from the CDC manager. Where are the elites of Manyu? Where is the intelligentsia? Where will our kids go, and how will they survive? Even if we have the crops, how will they carry them to the market? They will tell you that when the plantation is coming that is when they will start to construct the roads. Let them construct the roads first and then follow with cassava, cocoa, palm kernel, and bush mango. We have our own cash-crops that are wanted in the world now. This is even the time for the government to encourage the planting of bush mango since it has been proven to fight obesity and is in high demand now in the US.

To the Manyu boys and girls, I call you not to sleep. Not at all! Rise up and tell the government of Paul Biya to go and go now. There are kids who refused to be born because he is still around. Please Biya go and let these kids come out of their mothers' wombs. Look at most of our schools, they don't have teachers. Our results are dropping yearly, and the names coming up with the best results even in our own land are no more our names. Oh land of the intelligent, to whom shall I bemoan such dearth? Only a selected few receive water. There is SNEC but not everyone with a meter receives water in Mamfe. There is never a week where there is electricity for continuously one week.

Some of you will be proud that Mamfe has been tarred. Good and fine but what does that avail to when there is no way to get out and come into Mamfe? Aren’t we really ashamed of ourselves? We have been following the same party for how many years, and all we get is a useless plantation? Perhaps the Obasinjom needs to come out to explain the oracle why we are intelligently stupid. I want to leave each and everyone today to their consciences. I want you all to know that anyone who will mortgage that division will never find rest and when things will change, we will fight hard to erase their names from the annals of our almanac. I want you to join me so that we can form a committee to debrief the people at home. We will carry a serious campaign from village to village to inform our people not to allow the government to fool them one more time. We will print leaflets and distribute to everyone.

Until then, may God bless the Manyu people.
