People are even talking of roads, the Manyu and Kupe people don’t even have schools and most of the schools have been left in the hands of the PTA. There are no benches and no blackboards. Did you know in most villages in Manyu and Kupe our kids are walking barefooted and even naked in this age and time? Most of our kids are singing this song.
If power was only within the Anglophone region we can talk of Manyu holding the swing vote but if nationally, it can only hold the swing vote if it puts itself in a position of influence. Each time there are elections, they carry caterpillars and start to grade the roads. They pay a Korean company that starts to grater the road to make it look like it will be tarred. After the elections, those workers disappear overnight and the roads remain the same. For more than 29 years that Biya has been in power, those roads have been like that. Take the 50 millions you have raised and build decent schools in the whole of Manyu and Kupe Muanenguba. Give me the 50 millions and ask me to furnish every school there with a library, and I will do that.
Look at where the meeting is taking place. It is taking place in Kumba rather than Mamfe or Ekondo Titi because there are no roads to Mamfe or Ekondo Titi. If they go there, they will have electricity on Monday and Tuesday and then they will stay in darkness on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and then the electricity that had traveled to Mvomeka will come back on Saturday and Sunday.
The honorable minister Prof Peter Agbor Tabi: a man I respect a lot has done too much for the Manyu people, Cameroon and especially to Paul Biya as an individual that no matter his association with the government should not darken such a palmares. However, this last desire of his and Prof Elvis Ngolle Ngolle to make the Manyu and Kupe people eternal back scratchers because of the crumbs that fall of the government’s table is tantamount to selling their own people into slavery.
Behold, I saw in a dream that the Manyu and Kupe people were taking turns to scratch Biya’s back as he lays calmly on his rocking chair. Time and again he gave way for Madam Chantal who laid on her swivel chair so that her own back too is scratched. Then they went a bit further from scratching their backs to scratching their asses. The Manyu and Kupe people will be asked to scratch Biya and Chnatal asses too. I can see it coming! The women will be scratching his back, and the men will be scratching her ass that way their demons of bad governance will be appeased for them to rule for eternity. Long live King Biya Bi Mvondo!
Can I ask the Manyu and Kupe people what they have had since they have been scratching Biya’s back for the past 29 years and that now they are telling you to scratch his ass too? Will those roads be paved in gold? I am not sure that they will be the same roads since other people got theirs by asking and the Manyu and Kupe people will have theirs by scratching his back and ass. Since we are scratching backs and asses, I am certain ours will be in gold.
Until then, he that scratches backs will soon scratch asses!
