  1. This sick country has gone ahead to punish a whistleblower because he is exposing the president’s nephew. Is it right to take people’s pension money and load over 20 of your friends to travel to Spain and watch El Classico? Is it right to dish out money as you wish to Roger Milla from peoples’ pension fund? Essoka Peter! Your end will be violently horrible. Wait n c!

    • Another FEDERATION with such a country will be a concentration camp.
      Southern Cameroonians should fight until they free themselves from LRC.

  2. Cameroonians, allowed Biya to amass too much power, until even the international
    community, has come to cowardly also fear him. But his fall, shall be that great that
    the mountain and the ocean, shall tremble.
    Just a matter of time and we shall shout and sing Allelujah.

  3. The reasons for suspending these press men isnt blown out,all these are propaganda reasons,let them also ban the whole crtv who have medals in lying,Issa tchuroma got double gold medals in lies telling,why havent they ban him?Simple pressmen with no Godfather will be suffering,where is lrp going? If u sing the lies like what the old fake regime is saying,u r the best,lets keep waiting for 2035,with this speed of things,even 20100,lrp will be same.,dirty dusty narrow roads,no hospitals,no water,totally nothing good for the poor citizens,they dont want to be exposed,keep covering the mess,u guys shall be accounted one day.

  4. “Tuile is hammered for his controversial report over salaries of Director Generals at the National Social Insurance fund, CNPS. He is equally indicted for his battle reports with Mekulu Mvondo Akame, the Director General of CNPS” Excellent job. The National Communication Council, NCC, is a disgrace entity run by other than ass licker Peter Essoka. What a shame!

  5. Should not the courts be the venue for going, with clean hands, to seek redress? Have the courts been reduced to mere onlookers as in the Ayah Paul, Felix Agbor Nkongho, Fontem Neba and other trials?

  6. Dictatorship at it`s highest level in the 21st century. What a country.

    Time, will help destroy it, since we have been reduced to cowards.
