In fact when his government announced the inclusion of the Diaspora as part of the voting community, it was easy to fathom that the man had sensed that it would be difficult to win an election with the population at home. He needed to create a constituency that was out of the reach of his opponents and election observers - Reasons why in the US less than 400 Cameroonians were allowed to vote out of a population of approximately 700, 000. None of this came as a surprise for anybody who has been following Biya over the past twenty years. 2011 Presidential Election in Cameroon: Context, Risk and Conflict Prevention Tue, 04 Oct 2011 15:39:24 +0200 Recently, several conflicts occurred in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Ivory Coast because of election results that were not accepted by the voters. As a result of the complex political situation, post-electoral instability is a concern in Cameroon as elections are planned for October 9, 2011. Dr. Landry Signé Nicola Lo Calzo: Capturing Africa through the lens Fri, 18 Mar 2011 13:34:44 +0100 With his striking portraits of Nigerians working and worshipping near the Niger River—a poignant photomontage entitled “Inside Niger”—award-winning 31-year-old Italian photographer Nicola Lo Calzo shines light on the humanity and spirituality of everyday people. Through slaughterhouses, fishing resorts, Catholic churches, tanneries and more, Calzo creates startlingly personalized portraits of local Nigerians. Equally revealing is his 2010 photo series “The Promising Baby,” images detailing the lives of ostracized albinos in Cameroon. Miles Marshall Lewis Cameroon president rushes back home after massive Bakassi abductions Wed, 09 Feb 2011 19:10:37 +0100 Following the abduction of 11 government officials including Ayuk Edward Taku, Sub-Prefect for the Kombo Abedimo commune in the Bakassi Pennisula of Cameroon between late Sunday night and early Monday, Cameroonian President Paul Biya Yaoundé has cut short a visit to Switzerland and returned home. Dorothée Ndoumbè Homosexuality: Tension between Cameroon and European Union Tue, 18 Jan 2011 17:27:03 +0100 The European Union (EU) has given more than 300,000€ in funding for gay rights associations in Cameroon. Opposed to these grants, the government argues that they would serve to encourage the practice of homosexuality in the central African country. But non-governmental organizations (NGOs) want the government to reconsider its position. Homosexuals in Cameroon are increasingly finding themselves in precarious conditions as many call for them to be "hunted down." René Dassié SIM card registration: A chance to formalize an informal economy, digitally Sat, 06 Nov 2010 16:33:14 +0100 A growing number of sub-Saharan African countries – South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Botswana, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, and more recently, Ghana – now require that the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card in a mobile phone be tied to the user's name. The main reason: to combat crime. But I am afraid that with its narrow rationale and focus, this exercise misses the big picture; i.e., a golden opportunity to develop a good database that could become the building blocks for stronger institutions and economic transformation.

The depletion of stocks and as well as the absence of essential capital needed to revitalise the market have been singled out. However, after hitting a new low, the precarious water situation in the central African country's capitals is yet to be addressed. Dorothée Ndoumbè Untangling Central Africa for business Tue, 07 Sep 2010 14:38:14 +0200 As the proper role of government continue to debated in much of the free world, Africans, and in particular Central Africans can only wish they lived in relatively free economic and political environments, instead of the increasingly morbid fear that characterise their daily lives. Chofor Che Chantal Biya says no to new Cameroon coach over sex scandal Mon, 02 Aug 2010 17:13:41 +0200 Usually, you lose your job then your wife.
