CAN WITHDRAWAL:PAUL BIYA WILL NOT PUNISH OR HOLD ANY ONE RESPONDSIBLE
More than a month after the withdrawal of the organization of the African Cup of Nations in Cameroon by the Confederation of African Football, nothing happened in the Cameroonian political Landerneau.
Life continues its normal course, as if a small morning breeze had taken too long to dry up. At least the December 31st speech was expected from the chief organizer of this darling, Mr. Paul Barthelemy Biya Mvondo. Flatness has been at the height of man.
In an entanglement of words aligned one after the other, he who still embodies the moral integrity of the Nation speaks with detachment of what is known as the biggest distraction of state funds in the world. And this is the signal that those responsible for all this scandal, will not be worried and will continue to operate with the benefit of human protection of great opportunities.
But we must read the part of his speech on the CAN to understand that the distraction of public funds is institutionalized. Verbatim …
“As you know, our country was committed to hosting the big meeting of African football in 2019. The Confederation of African Football, based on some data, thought it was necessary to make a date shift. We took note of it. As I said before, all the investments related to the CAN organization will be made.
“I take this opportunity to ask you to remain mobilized so that ultimately, the modernization of our road, rail, hospital and sports related to this great event, materialize: our country deserves it.”
Who still believes in these promises?
