    • BIKO,,,, what is the connection between the act of growing crops in your village’, and the child of mvondo biya living a lavish life in dubai? I do not see the slitest connection.we have been conditioned in occupation institutions called schools to aspire becoming so called skilled workers. But it is impossible to rebuild a civilization with people who have such limited a limited dream. We need people who will accept the sacrefise to go from the foundation agriculture which gives birth to the secondary sector industry which then creates the third commercialization. It is from here that capital is generated to organise all sectors of the economy,health,education, housing. But our minds are pre programmed to start in air conditioned offices. When it is not possible we turn to blame biya.

  3. We can not generate heavy capital to lunch satellites that will enable us to capture key sectors like comminucation with salaried workers doing so called white colored jobs. the ultimate dream of so called diasporans.even when we need skilled workers, it should be engineers, agronomist, capable of designing and building our factories, roads, farms, research laboratories, etc. Not so called media consultants,english,french,TEACHERS.HADEMESA a Japanese professor insisted in one of his books only available in Japanese that the key to the countries modernization lies in training top engineers. The constant attitude of blaming those from biya, s village is pure ignorance.
