Cameroonians Lack Courage- Cardinal Tumi



Cardinal Christian Tumi has once again addressed issues related to the role of the Holy Roman Catholic Church in the political sphere. In a recent interview granted, the retired prelate also made his opinion public on democracy in Cameroon. A synopsis of the conversation published by indicated that the 86-year-old has not changed his positions on the management of Cameroon. This is what the former archbishop of Douala had to say:

On the evolution of the Catholic Church in Cameroon over the last 50 years

“The Church in Cameroon works for the good and peace of all, despite the difficulties encountered and human littering of its path. We must never forget that the Church is also human even though the attitudes of some priests who preach to the faithful have often been inadequate. It is thanks to God that the Church is changing, and not because of our virtues. Jesus did say that he will be with his Church until the end of time. Whatever the difficulties within the Church, Jesus told us in the Gospel of Saint John that: “Do not be afraid! I have overcome the world and its challenges.”

On the political change

“Actually, the solution seems to be to consider a transition period of three years, with the condition that the head of state elected by the transition, does not show up in the presidential election at the end of his term. During this period, the strong democratic institutions will be in place before the organization of free, transparent and fair elections in which each candidate or each political party will present his political philosophy or his projects to Cameroonians who will elect to power a President of the Republic legitimate and democratically. As was done in Burkina Faso and the Central African Republic. “

The impossibility of a revolution in Cameroon

Cameroonians do not have that courage. If Cameroonians were revolutionaries, we would have long had social movements or claims of a certain scale. I have met some African observers who said that if the situations we live occurring in their country, they would have entered into civil war and that in Cameroon; it is as if everything was fine.

By the way, I have to tell you that I am writing a book on the natural moral and human morality. God gave us the law that governs us from our hearts and that is lacking in other creatures. “Do good, avoid evil”, that is the lesson we should give children so that they incorporate it into their way of being, for their good and the good of the country.

For those who have the power, they know they will give account to God because they govern the people created by God. For Cameroon, the head of state knows it will report its governance before God. For example, God will ask him, ‘how have you ruled Cameroonians that I entrusted to you?’

God is still saying something.
