The Hall of SHAME!

Edition No:10     April 2006         Paul Biya - Special Edition (III)

Hall of Shame Mission Statement

This site is dedicated to expose those shameful people who think they can lie, cheat, steal and violate the principles of basic humanity and remain anonymous. As you are aware, my involvement with Cameroon began through the glazed eyes of a tourist. After a sham marriage and the loss of my life savings to the corrupt judiciary, I now see the plight of Cameroonians through much clearer eyes. It is through fiercely protected anonymity, by those involved, that corruption heads down its unbending path. These are the same people sitting in the pew next to you in church on Sundays, who are stealing the food from your mouth and your children’s education on Mondays. I say, lets take a look at these people and let them enjoy the sleepless nights that they inflict upon others. Exposure of these peoples' acts of shame is the strongest tool to drive others away from these evil practices.

Is Cameroon so far down the toilet bowl of corruption that it is beyond help? I think not, but the fact that many wear their crimes as medals to their cleverness, and worse, that others aspire in the same way to achieve like goals is a mentality worthy of standing against.

From The Editors Desk

Dear Fellow Corruption Haters,

                                    Another very strange month has passed. As they say, “fact is often stranger than fiction”, and I for one don’t have the imagination to dream this stuff up. During the course of the month a strange thing happened. I received from the manufacturer, a prototype of the "Dictator Doll" I advertised in last months newsletter.Biya suffered stomach cramps while in Equatorial Guinea! (See advertisement at the bottom of this page) The doll looked very life-like and the image of Biya was excellent. For some reason, I'm not sure why, but I used some needles I had nearby and pierced the stomach region of the doll several times. It even seemed like a very silly thing to do at the time. I thought nothing more of it until I began reading reports on the web a couple of days later saying that the President was taken to hospital with stomach cramps or abdominal pains. I was dumfounded when I read the reports. Could I believe in Voodoo, that something like this can happen or is it purely coincidence?  If it is coincidence, it's almost to spooky to believe.

Later, I did read another report that Biya is still in Europe suffering from food poisoning he got while in Equatorial Guinea. That he is in really bad shape and belching up all that stolen money he’s eaten!

We also have the final voting on the sentence to be carried out in the final phase of the trial of Paul Biya. Many thanks to the thousands of you who voted throughout the trial, I think we can all feel encouraged that finally “Justice shall Prevail”. A special thanks to all who actively participated in this landmark case, showing that the small people do have a voice and are entitled to be heard. We have done the hard work and now is the time to pass the matter over to a power much higher than ourselves.

I also noticed a new and informative website with excellent links to the various groups involved in the struggle for Southern Cameroon’s independence. Take a few moments to see what is available at the Independent Gazette .

All the best,  Glenn

Shame File No:8

Name: Barrister Mbi Jonas

Residence: Solomon Law Firm

Lumumba Street, Kumba

Aliases: Na Kumba feyman.
                    Mbi na oversize doki.

Barrister Mbi Jonas, carrying his files of doki in Kumba.

Congratulations Mbi Jonas for finally making an appearance where you belong, in this arena where thieves, liars & cheats are exposed for what they are. For those who may wonder what  my issues are with this feyman, here's a short explanation.

On June 20, 2001 Barrister Mbi was brought to Limbe (by Enow Brillian Ayuk) to act on my behalf on the purchaser of a compound at Towe Quarter, Mile 2.  The purchase price was 10,000,000 and Barrister Mbi advised that his fees would be 500,000. (10% of the purchase price).  Behind the scenes Barrister Mbi had arranged that the seller - a Colonel Ebogo Titus, would be paid the actual price of 8,000,000 cfa and fake documents were to be drawn up for me to believe that the price was 10,000,000.  Barrister Mbi Jonas accepted his 500,000 cfa fee from me to act on my behalf and then stole 2,000,000 cfa. So far he has supplied 3 different documents of title on the same purchase.  On July 31, 2001, I presented myself at Solomon Chambers to discuss discrepancies with the compound title documents. Barrister Mbi Jonas made excuses and accepted that the documents were poor and had problems. On August 2nd he arrived in Limbe asking for 200,000 cfa to redo the title papers in my name. At this time Barrister Mbi withheld all the documentation and was to advise Enow Brillian Ayuk to remove all documentation of my purchases from the marital home, which she did three days later. Barrister Mbi Jonas was then present at State Council six days later (10th August) where an attempt was made to jail & deport me. Barrister Mbi attended State Council representing Enow Brillian Ayuk, with three pages of false charges (which were to disappear from State Council office a month later). It is possible that Barrister Mbi Jonas was the one who planted the seed in Enow Brillian Ayuk's head, that led to her poisoning me.
The story goes on, but basically Solomon Chambers is a thieves hideout and unknowing people seeking legal service should remain clear of this Chamber of Thieves.

Have no fear Barrister Jonas Mbi, we shall be visiting you continually, until such time as you appear at Fako High court and set straight your shameful actions in the court matter still pending. I hope Mr. Biya realizes that it is because of bottom feeding rodents like you, that he is taking a continual bath in this forum. But for thieves like you bringing shame upon the Cameroon Judiciary specifically and Cameroon in general, this website wouldn't exist. I hope Popol appreciates your efforts and rewards you appropriately.

Mbi Jonas Lie Lie Lawyer

Mbi Jonas oversize lies (First two words falling pitch and the last two rising pitch)

It is said that a mans signature is his word! This signature of Mbi Jonas was on fake doki (property title documents) and 2,000,000 cfa was stolen.

 

 

Lie Lie Lawyer oh Pampam (chorus)
Mbi Jonas oversize head
Lie Lie Lawyer oh Pampam (chorus)
Mbi Jonas Oversize coat
Lie Lie Lawyer oh Pampam (chorus)
Mbi Jonas Oversize shoes
Lie Lie Lawyer oh Pampam (chorus)
Mbi Jonas oversize dross
Lie Lie Lawyer oh Pampam (chorus)
Mbi Jonas oversize doki
Lie Lie Lawyer oh Pampam (chorus)

Let only the men sing this part
Mbi, Mbi (slow)
Mbi Mbi Mbi Mbi Mbi (fast)

Ladies only
Mbi, Mbi (slow)
Mbi Mbi Mbi Mbi Mbi

All
Mbi, Mbi (slow)
Mbi Mbi Mbi Mbi Mbi

Then repeat the song all over.

Warning Warning - Feymen operate as Barristers at Solomon Chambers, Kumba.

Hunting the "Big Whales"

Here we are again, only some few short months later and to those that aren’t blind, it can be clearly seen that Biyas Biya Hunting Season!anti-corruption locomotive is not only slowing down but being turned down some sidetrack. Knowing that all fingers are pointing at him (Biya). What does he do? Start another anti corruption drive. I guess that he will torture and goal a few scapegoats and stand there expecting to be hailed as some type of hero! The most disappointing part of this is that to some extent he will probably succeed. His recent self-appointment as the head of a National Anti-Corruption Commission wreaks of more foul play against the citizens of Cameroon. Biya knows that if he appoints a Moby Biya!Politician or Judge as team leader, he risks a similar episode as happened in the 90’s with minister Garga, where the bloated whales were exposed. Biya knows that all roads to corrupt practices lead straight to the gates of the Presidential Palace. Which one of his palaces you ask? Well, all of them of course!

“For those who don't remember, a similar anti-corruption drive was launched in the early 1990s when Garga was the Minister of Public Services. Garga took the anti-corruption campaign so seriously that his enthusiasm threatened the very foundations of the Biya regime.
As a result, the President stepped in and unceremoniously stripped Garga of his authority to hunt the "big whales" that were emptying the national treasury. He resigned in protest in August 1992“.
(excerpt from the news story below)  

My thoughts on this matter are quite simple. We have an unwanted Japanese whaling fleet lurking around the southern oceans below Australia. I suggest that post haste we send them to Cameroon to blast away with theirAnyone can join in whale hunting season! harpoons at the bloated and lazy whales. They would be easy targets for any harpooner, as after living off the fat of the people, I just can’t picture them moving quickly enough to avoid the explosive harpoon. The Japanese only kill whales for scientific experiments (Well that's their story), so maybe they can analyze the bloated whale samples and discover what makes these corrupt people act the way they do? It has been said that most of the whales harpooned by the Japanese end up on a dinner plate or in a tin of dog food. Hmm, that might be just the motivation for those bloated whales to think about quickly shedding a few pounds and a few billion cfa!

Biya's Bloated Buddies!
How Far WILL Biya Go - And How Far SHOULD He Go?

A recent interview given to The Post Newspaper by Garga Haman Adji (aka "the whale hunter"), a former Minister of Public Service and Administrative Reforms, raises a more relevant question: How far should Biya go, given the mind-boggling depth of institutionalized corruption in Cameroon?


Then there were the Cameroonian athletes who fled before the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth games in Melbourne. If they were genuine athletes who took their chance for a better life and to escape the clutches of the Biya regime, then I wish them the best of luck. But if they are cheats who bribed their way to be included in the Cameroon delegation with the sole purpose of cheating the immigration procedures, then I hope these persons are caught and given a taste of our detention centre's, before being deported back to Cameroon and the welcoming committee that Biya shall have waiting for them.

All the best,  Glenn Wilson


Photographs Wanted ($200 US each)

We are still missing a few “Shame File” photos. In the interest of seeing that none of these crooks escape under the Hall of Shame radar, we decided to double the incentive to (US $200). Barrister Mbi (Solomon Chambers) is still hiding in Kumba for some lucky photographer, (snapped!). The last I knew, the SGBC Manager & Assistant Manager were both at the Limbe SGBC branch. As for the Chief of Territorial Surveillance in Buea, he is a large Bayangi man and was there in 2002 / 2003 (Governors Office building). He can be identified by Inspector Enow Stephen Etengeneng of Buea Judicial Police. Further helpful information on these “Shame File Fugitives” locations can be requested by contacting me at the address below. Photos must be of similar quality to those used in previous shame files. Good luck with the snapping. If you can send me a photograph of any of those people listed below, and it is published on the shame file, a payment of $200 US shall be made to the sender. The personal details of any senders shall remain completely confidential and shall be known only by myself. Photos can be forwarded to Camerooninjustice@hotmail.com.

Why not get some cash and at the same time let me expose them for their corrupt ways?

Like I said, “This is your site too”.

CPDM Blames Corruption Spread On JudiciaryHigh Court Justice
The Cameroon Peoples Democratic Movement, CPDM, party has accused the judiciary of sowing seeds of corruption that have spared no sector in the country.

Can Biya, On His Own, Effectively, Arrest All Big Time Embezzlers?
Biya should Declare Assets
I do not believe that Biya can effectively arrest all the big shots embezzling state funds. First, he should declare his assets according to Article 66 of the constitution. It is only at that point that the big shots could be arrested. Without that, there are no hopes. Philip Njaru, Human Rights Defender

Hon. Tamfu Recommends Biya To Arrest Even HimselfBiya should arrest himself!
"We are gathered here today to tell His Excellency Paul Biya that he is dancing the real dance. We need to encourage him to arrest more embezzlers of public funds, whether they are in the ruling party or the opposition. Even if it means arresting some of us in the CPDM or himself, let him do it for us to arrive at the HIPC-Initiative Completion Point".

Biya Heads Anti-Corruption Commission
President Paul Biya Saturday, March 11, signed a Presidential Decree creating a National Anti-Corruption Commission, NAC, with him at the helm.
People, how can Biya, the king and keeper of corruption in Cameroon head a commission fighting the same scourge? Nonsense. This is another clear indication that the Biya regime, like a leopard can't change it's spots. Biya could not trust anyone else to shield his shady dealings and decided to seat at the helm of the body so he can decide who to sacrifice for PR reasons and who to maintain. (Readers comment)

Human Rights Issues


Cameroon Human Rights Record Still Poor
Following Paul Biya's authoritarian rule and decades of economic degradation, corruption, graft and, sometimes, outright theft, the Head of State's occupation of Cameroon has compounded the abuse of the human rights of the citizens. The President, in his latest move, has tied the element of corruption and debt relief together in what amounts to a threnody of grief for the grand ambition dream.

The government's human rights record remained poor, and the government continued to commit numerous serious human rights abuses.

MORE ARREST AND HUMAN RIGHT ABUSED IN MAMFE.

DEAR COMRADES,
 Another member of the SCYL, and member of SCNC Besongabang Mamfe.  Mr Etando Conrad Eta was detained yesterday 28th march 2006 at the Gendarmerie Brigade Mamfe when he went to give food to the SCYL detainees at the Gendarmerie Brigade Mamfe.  Mr. Etando was amongst the friends and relatives of the detainees who had pleaded for two days without success for the Gendarmes to allow food to be taken to the prisoners. As there were waiting outside for maybe a change of mind, Mr.Etado was called to take the food to the detainees as he entered the cell, the door was locked behind him and he was made a prisoner. He spent his first night in the cell with the rest of the SCYL detainees and sympathisers.

We continue to plead for the immediate released of the detained persons.

Yours Sincerely.
OBEN MAXWELL.
SCNC / SCYL Cordinator.

    MAIL BAG




     


    Dear Glenn,

    You may recall that I wrote to your newsletter about the appalling state of Cameroon’s economy, a victim of corruption at the top. We Cameroonians, safely settled in Europe, are embarrassed by the Biya mafia’s activities, and despair at the hopeless situation of our compatriots trapped in our homeland.

    There’s an old adage ‘something’s rotten in the State of Denmark’. No it’s in Cameroon, and the smell is wafting all the way from West Africa to Europe. We are trying to form an association with the aim of grabbing Biya and his generals, if they happen to stray across the Belgium border. Who knows, if other nations learn of the outrageous situation in Cameroon, with the economy being raped regularly by the Unity Palace clan, another nation may join with Belgium.

    Our legal team is drafting a statement of claim for rapid fire action if the opportunity arises. We are also putting a publicity team together, so that European governments will become aware of the gravity of Cameroon’s situation. We must act as a dynamic team- not just voices in the wilderness.

    Importantly we want to bombard France with details so that the crook will be embarrassed when his gold plated aircraft arrives in Paris for another extravagant party. Of course the plane will be packed with Generals and their wives, girlfriends, some Guess Who?‘boyfriends’, and other cronies, all using the money that should pay the salaries of government employees, some of whom have not been paid for years.

    Please ask the poverty stricken people of Cameroon to keep alert for news, when Paul heads off for another jaunt. Perhaps we could then flood the press with questions about his activities. He won’t be able to hide when he’s staying in a democracy. Unlike Cameroon, the European press is free, and editors can’t be gaoled and tortured for simply reporting activities. So, anyone living close to the palace, or the airport, can provide a service to their fellow Cameroonians.

    I beg Cameroonians to keep the faith- he will fall, along with his army officers, even though they are outside the law, all crooks eventually fall, HARD.

    Sincerely,

    Charles Le Blanc

    Investor’s Corner

     

    Cameroon is today one of the strangest places on earth. Now take this scenario. One person investigates high level theft in government and comes out with a list of alleged thieves. Normally, the government will investigate this. In Cameroon it is the reverse. The person who investigates the minister is himself investigated and dragged to court because according to the Cameroon minister of FINANCE, " une presse de haine, de jalousie, qui incite au meurtre… " So, he is not in court for defamation but on grounds that "the press is consumed by hate, jealousy and that the press incites murder". Consequently, if one were to publish a story relating to banditry of the people's money by a gang of thieves in government, then you must be doing so under the influence of hate, jealousy so that the perpetrators will be murdered by the angry people whether the story is true or not. Well, unfortunately, that exactly is why the press publish such acts by evil men. To incite the people to wake up......and since the people cannot get justice as quickly as the Ministers from the corrupt system, mob justice is inevitable.... Most people get what they ask "hate, jealousy and death" on account of their evil acts. So instead for the government dragging poor publishers to court, why not investigate ministers in accordance with the constitution that allows for asset declaration? This may obviate an impending socio- political disaster in Cameroon.

    Why Cameroon Is Poor And Corrupt
    A Review By Dibussi Tande
    In his book, The Undercover Economist, Tim Harford, a World Bank economist and columnist for the Financial Times, dedicates a chapter to the reason why poor countries remain poor. The chapter draws extensively, if not exclusively, from the Cameroon experience.

    Why Poor Countries Are Poor (I)
    They call Douala the "armpit of Africa." Lodged beneath the bulging shoulder of West Africa, this malaria-infested city in southwestern Cameroon is humid, unattractive, and smelly.

    Olson does not predict that stable dictatorships will do good things for their countries, just that they'll damage the economy less than unstable ones.

              Everybody in Cameroon from Biya to the most trivial citizen like myself lives in holy fear of the military........The military are the true wielders of power in Cameroon.....for they would literally obliterate, kill, destroy, vaporize their enemies and the lameduck Cameroonian judiciary could not do anything about it......That's why I agree with those who hold that Cameroon is a police state......did I say police state......naaah I meant failed state....Ooops freudian slip, I meant to say a military dictatorship.....

    We're also going through some damaging evidences received against SGBC bank and shall start the trial against this unscrupulous banking institution once the case is finalized
