  2. This is a reflection of how the presidentials will be. You can see the njangi parties,
    that will ally with the chop people dem money party already.
    Osih, just wants to be seen and that is not good for anybody, just himself. And
    like others before him, he will later be bundled and kept aside to become a noice
    maker and singer who will continue the part played by Mr. Ndi – ie. promoting
    Mr. biya`s fame and blocking the progress of others and the country.
    Well, he too will become a business man like his mentor, who will to some
    extent, use him as middleman to biya.

    • Fru Ndi is gone can’t you control your graffi hate for him and concentrate on your Ndian brother inside the pot soup smal quack ? Fcuk you

      • is this forum to be abusing people? The administrator should do his job. People should make comments and observations and abuse others. When would Cameroonians–west/east learn not to be considered _______?
