The state of Cameroon Development Corporation-CDC has been hugely affected as a result of the present crisis rocking the Cameroons. Many camps within the CDC has been forced to shut down, production has stopped in most places as Southern Cameroons Restoration Forces engage in economic sabotage to bring the regime on the dialogue table. As we write, the General Manager-GM of the corporation is in yaounde, the capital city of Cameroun to lobby for urgent solution to the crisis that has left the CDC functioning at 50% with no ability to break even to compensate it’s cost. The company is virtually living by it’s name, as of now electricity which was paid the the company to those on company’s houses has been abolished and workers now will take care of their bills. No more allowances of any sort for category 7-12 workers and as at now, salaries for May and June, 2018 for most workers has been postponed till further notice. Banana is the only sector holding CDC and as at now, she has not been able to pay workers on the same reasons that no money, that’s for the month of june.
Though it is painful as it affects Southern Cameroonians, popular opinion thinks that it is a necessary as the corporation is one of the greatest state funders. It is the opinion of BaretaNews that the company must be made to function at 0 percent. 50 percent is still too high. The Banana sector must also now be sabotaged. In fact, once the Southern Cameroons people are satisfied that CDC no longer funds the state and international partners are no longer demanding from them any products, all attention must be focused to make SONARA, the national refinery to bleed. SONARA remains the last structure giving Biya money to fund the war.
Meanwhile as the war in the Cameroons rages on, intelligence reaching BaretaNews suggests La Republique du Cameroun has called back to service retired military and army officers to serve in various capacities as their military force becomes stretch due to the conflict. BaretaNews hugely holds that Southern Cameroonians whose relatives or parents are on retirement and has been called back to service should advise them not to go. They need to enjoy their deserved rest less their retirement shall be cut short by restoration forces should they decide to move and engage in the battle field. This information has just been sent to BaretaNews desk after a high level army security meetings yesterday.
