Cameroun Diplomatically Begs USA, Acquires 19th Century Locomotives

Cameroun Acquires 19th Century Locomotives from the U.S in the 21st Century.

The US embassy in Yaounde has just recently published a picture of a ceremony that took place in Douala, Economic capital of Cameroun last March 7th. The Embassy on its facebook page, thanking the lone railway company of that country, CAMRAIL, for acquiring Five U.S made General Electric Locomotives.

The presiding officer at the event was  Vernelle Fitzpatrick who popped a bottle of champagne to applauses from local administrative authorities and the management of the Cameroun Railway Cooperation, CAMRAIL.There is an African adage that, “when God wants to kill a bad man, He makes you a fool first”. This to say when you eventually lose senses, you do only things that will lead you to your grave.

A classical example of that “fool” above is the Yaounde regime. After accusing biya and his gangster military regime for massacre in the Southern Cameroons, restricting military Aids of 17 million Dollars, reduction of economic Aids and other diplomatic tortures given the regime, the US is showing every iota of her government not interested in Biya’s country.

Its not clear if the Electric Locomotives are bought or dashed to Cameroun. What is obvious is that, many have been questioning the era of such trains in cities like Douala and Yaounde given that, most recent trains coming to Africa are of modern and electrically automated  systems.

We have seen these beautiful trains in Nigeria, Senegal, Rwanda and other Developing countries inaugurated by their Presidents, with a super Rail system in place. Cameroun has delebrately chosen to take its economy backward with billions of Francs CFA rather embezzled everyday by it’s state officials. 

Cameroun’s lone Rail company, CAMRAIL, has been suffering total inefficiency since after the 21st october 2016 Eseka train saga that killed hundreds of people and left close to 600 injured. Here comes same kind of locomotives for transportation of people and goods that caused the accident.

Southern Cameroonians have not been quite comfortable with the situation because, they smell a scenario where these locomotives will be sent down to the Southern Zone to completely reap off the oil in Ndian County, Timber in Lebialem and export all their food and raw materials to La Republic using those freight locomotives.

It should be recalled that, sending any such trains into the Southern Cameroons is purely trespass of territorial integrity and had been banned by the leadership of Ambazonia.While we appreciate the US for their continuous efforts in helping to revamp the 3rd world economies like that of Cameroun, we will like to remind them of an even important obligation they uphold, their commitment to humanity.

Ambazonians continue to call on America to boycot everything diplomatically and economically with French Cameroun and bring more pressure to bear on the Biya’s military and dictatorial regime, for slaughtering the People of Southern Cameroons since 2016

    When God wants to kill a bad man, He makes you a fool first.

    Watch the kind of trains Ivory Coast in bringing in to the delight of their future generations. The want a better future for their children. biya and his criminals on the other hand is forcing dorsal french camerounians to swallow his deception of new 19th century locomotives. The crime syndicate, the force of experience, believing in belly politics can only get scraps to animate their 2035 advancement hoax. At least, those locomotives will be placed in Douala museums, road sides, and city centers in praise of the fool – biya… that’s all he wants. Ambazonians should watch out that none of those killer locomotives enter Southern Cameroon.

    Sumelong Ekane, you don’t believe all that load of crap you have written, do you? Just another crap article. Why would you, an ambafool (if not an amba terrorist), care how “Cameroun” spends its money? Why would the so-called “ambazonia” (a virtual country, a country only on the Internet, rather than in the real world) care what “Cameroun” buys or sells? Hypocrites! Hypocrites! Hypocrites! You guys are confused!

    Electric locomotives are being used in the United States of America and Canada. And both are Developed Countries. General Electric (GE) has constructed passenger locomotives for Amtrak (a passenger railroad service that provides medium- and long-distance intercity service in the contiguous United States of America and to nine Canadian cities), and for Via Rail Canada (an independent state-owned corporation of Canada), which is mandated to operate intercity passenger rail service across Canada. So, Thus, “Cameroun” is NOT acquiring 19th Century locomotives from the United States of America in the 21st Century. Profound and disturbing ignorance on your part. You have made a big fool of yourself. Ignoramus?

    “Its not clear if the Electric locomotives are bought or dashed to Cameroun”. What is “dashed?” Pidgin English for a gift or something given for free? You’re assaulting the Queen’s language. If we assume that the locomotives are a gift or aid from the USA, then, why would you say “Cameroun” diplomatically begs USA?” You should instead say “USA diplomatically begs Cameroun”. The title of your article is absurd, illogical.

    “Southern Cameroonians have not been quite comfortable with the situation because, they smell a scenario where these locomotives will be sent down to the Southern Zone to completely reap off the oil in Ndian County, Timber in Lebialem and export all their food and raw materials to La Republic using those freight locomotives”. I am sure you meant rip off, not reap off. There are no railroads in the South West Region (except from Kumba to Mbanga), and no railroads in the North West Region. So, how will the locomotives rip off oil in Ndian, timber in Lebialem, and export all the food and raw materials to La Republic? Your assertions are NONSENSICAL and ridiculous. The only oil refinery in Cameroon is in Limbe. Do all the Government of Cameroon service vehicles drive down to Limbe to get free fuel? Do all CAMRAIL trains conducted to Limbe to get free fuel?

    Sumelong Ekane is a lapdog of amba terrorists.

    That locomotive pictured is not a 19th century unit. It is at least late 20th Century. Furthermore, GE makes diesel electric locomotives and electric locomotives. They never made steam engines.

    Cameroun has added its voice to the list of countries that has banned the Boeing 737MAX 8 from its air space. Following the crash that killed 157 people from the doomed Ethiopian airways on Sunday,, the president of the Republique of Cameroun, his excellency Paul Biya has authorized the minister of transport to put all current orders of the 737MAX 8 on hold. CamAir which planned on revamping its moribund airway industry with this model has now decided to suspend its current orders. The octogenarian president had previously chattered this plane to some of his unofficial visits to Europe particularly Switzerland and was very impressed with the model and wanted CamAir to acquire this particular model to jump start its Airline industry which has been very controversial over the years with many ministers jailed over gross embezzlement of funds. With two fatal crashes of the 737 MAX8 in less than 6months, the president is not in any way impressed with the model again and wants Boeing to personally send him an explanation through the minister of communication, explaining why Boeing thinks Cameroon should invest in this model. The president reiterates that the country has already lost too many of his citizens in an unjust war that he declared in the NW/SW regions of the country, which he now realizes was a big judgmental mistake and bad advice from his cronies. In the days ahead the president will make his personal stand on the Boeing saga on his facebook page. Stay tuned on this developing story…

    It’s only a foolish evil president like biya that uses his military (bir) as guinea pigs on peaceful people. Now we know, and biya knows that the bir and french soldiers included is not the best fighting force that francophone africa thought they were. The war the french cameroon illiterate and foolish president, biya, declared has instead proved Ambazonia’s rag tag forces are superior and will hold their ground with Dane guns. The war will continue as the AU, UN and EU hide their heads in the sand thinking Amba Forces will eventually surrender to biya and his crime syndicate … IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!

      The AU, UN, EU, etc. know the truth, that Cameroon is ONE and INDIVISIBLE. They also know that amba terrorists are just like ISIS. They are rapists, death squads, riff-raffs, etc.

    Yes the “Never Again Generation” is very determine to safeguard the territorial integrity of Ambazonian from the hoodlums, terrorists and armed robbers from LRC.

      “ambazonia” has, and controls no territory. Do you mean safeguarding territorial integrity on the Internet since ambazonia is a virtual or phantom country? In what currency are ransoms paid within your territorial boundaries? The ambazonia crap is a pipe dream. At best, the ambazonia crap is a death cult just like ISIS.
