The above statement is the speech of an angry, honest cameroonian citizen.
Why did she say this ? She said this because, overhere in Cameroon, in the month of june 2013, there will be both municipal and parliamentary elections in-order to vote new persons with their new orientations or maintain the incombent with their tradition.
From a normal, clean and clear point of view, these upcoming event has to stimulate and pull populations towards registration offices in huge numbers. But, unfortunately for the election organisers, this is not the case. Given the scarcity of persons who voluntarily come to register in the voter’s lists. Some mobile registration offices stay open til 8 :30pm evening time hoping to grab a few registrations here and there. It is obvious for everybody the participation of the masses is at its minimum.
Also,in the different radio and television stations that broadcast within the Yaounde capital city and environs, it is common to hear people call and voice out their disgust, the reasons why they do not get themselves registered in the voter’s lists of their neighbourhoods. Thes are some of the reasons :
-Lack of pipe-borne water in the Yaounde capital city.
-The non-payment of retired workers pensions [How are they going to live ?]
-Sacrificial killing of young girls and their sex organs mutilated.
-At the age of 90, an old man is still maintained as chairman of the board of directors of a first class hospital here in Yaounde. This situation has developped a climate of laxity, corruption and other bad practices in the hospital which eventually falls on the heads of innocent patients who come to seek health.
-Electricity cuts in Yaounde [How will children study in their homes ?]
-Upon the death of a lord mayor,the law in Cameroon stipulates 60 days after this sad event, a new mayor should be voted and installed so as to avoid prolonged vacancy. Unfortunately, in one municipal territory where the mayor died some time ago,this law is not respected. And, it is this issue that makes the populations of that municipality angry and ready to boycott the upcoming elections come june 2013.
