  1. People of the same click! Why are you giving medical equipments to Chantal Biya. Why not go to some village in the North West or south west and just show a small sign of solidarity by encouraging poor mamas and papas with little subsidies. You guys think life begins and ends in Yaoundé. You should know that we all supported you when you were playing but since you ‘retired’ you have clearly told us which side you belong to! I remember how you could play that game even better than the whiteman who created it but when it came to tv interviews you jambox pidgin/French/bassaa together! Lap!

  4. Apart from my family, Roger Milla is the only Cameroonian that I feel has made me stood up and be proud to be called a Cameroonian. During that world cup when the sub Roger Milla danced to the goal and around the corner flags, my eyes filled with tears of joy. Everywhere you went, people greeted you as a Cameroonian. Even to this day, many people around the world still remember that world cup.

    Recently, I attended a senior management meeting in the middle East and when they heard I was Cameroonian, people of that certain age still ask about Roger Milla. What a unique ambassador for Cameroon.

  6. I don’t trust these people. They were the number one supporter of apartheid in south Africa. If they have such humanitarian feelings why don’t they liberate Palestinians like White South Africans did to the blacks? Africans are so stupid , naive and easy to deceive. We shouldn’t be dealing with these people. They don’t like blacks. Go there and see how they treat blacks before you will understand what I’m talking about.
