  1. Why not just open a legal website building business in CMR? That is a good startup that can yield much capital that can be used to invest in a different business like a shop or so, and become rich with dignity in less than 5years.

    Or, why not contact Ni Bah Acho, and gain from some of his expertise in agriculture?

    Weeeehrkeeeh, how we ova like con short so nor? Anything na daso conshort, for move Biya oh, so-so con short, for march reach for Buea oh, daso con short…

  2. Always the same , no surprise here , Anglo bami school of values . Mina bel ki osoan? I weep for ambashitnia.

    • No question here.
      Some will say it is “hard work”.
      This could actually be deeper than we think.
      Could be in genes.

      • My brother I don die , this thing tire me , there are actually on going studies pointing to what you alluded it really seems to be genetically as well as socially driven , in fact in was shown that the concept of Integrity/ethic is actually alien to the ngraffi/nguelafi community . They come from a place where robbery,banditry, ill gotten wealth and riches are celebrated , as such it is very hard for them to not bring their low moral values and standards wherever they go , we all know the saying you can remove the monkey from the bush but you can’t remove the bush from the monkey . I’m afraid the Anglo bami will forever keep disgracing us all over the world . As they are very lazy and their credo is easy money .

        • It is so convenient to turn one’s back to the White collar robbery that has brought the nation into disrepute. Andre Mama Fouda would love such sermons to whitewash the 555,000,000 CFA Franc stash carried away from his attic.
          Gone are the good old proverbs of not throwing stones if one lives inside a glass house.

  3. When a society teaches by example that hard work is a respectable way to earn a living then the children grow to understand that
    Of course you will always find dishonest people in every society!
    Problem in Cameroon is ;
    The president lives a life of luxury through embezzled funds.
    The minister become ministers through corrupt practices and they too embezzle funds
    Administrators from ENAM were admitted through corrupt practices and now practice corruption and embezzlement after graduation.
    Government workers in government offices, custom officers, police officers, etc
    Corruption and embezzlement is celebrated at all levels of society and rarely chastised or punished.
    Our children are learning and have learned that this is an okay way to earn a living.
    Where is the mirror Cameroon!
