Knocks On Cameroon Over Disappearance Of 89 AFCON Buses

Social Media users in their numbers have been attacking the government in Cameroon over the reported disappearance of 89 out of 90 buses used in the last African Cup of Nations hosted by the country.

They said the report if proven to be true is a confirmation of the high corruption rate that has defined the West African country for a long time.

Posting on Facebook, Evans Isosamwen said the high rate of corruption in Cameroon and other African countries can be effectively contained by adopting the policy in China,in which corrup officials are killed. “If corruption is from the top, very difficult to contain except by Chinese formula of death. “Accountability is always missing among African leaders. Officials in charge of the buses know what happened. Do not believe their cock and bull story”.

Paul Udosen on his part wrote,
“Africans magic”.

Also commenting, Pat Idehen Samson
said, “Nothing wey we no go see and hear in Africa”.

Mattzan Azanor submitted that,
“That’s to tell you the level of corruption in Africa”.

Cameroon’s reputation has been soiled due to high rate of corruption, with the country’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) being consistently poor throughout the history of Transparency International.

“According to Transparency International, corruption in Cameroon was at its worst in the late 1990s when Cameroon topped the ranking of most corrupted countries in the world in 1998 and 1999”, writes Wikipedia.

“Two decades later, even though Cameroon does not top the said ranking any longer, it is still among the top 30 most corrupted countries in the world.

“Two decades later, even though Cameroon does not top the said ranking any longer, it is still among the top 30 most corrupted countries in the world.

” Furthermore, transparency of the civil society and freedom of the press are still weak and efforts engaged to combat these have been extensively criticised by national and international actors.
