The president of the Kumba Township Taxi Drivers’
Association-KUTTADRA, Mr. Akongwi Christopher popularly known as
Ajebe, has promised tough times to the city’s con men and unscrupulous
cab drivers who collaborate with them.
Ajebe sounded the warning on Thursday June 5, 2014 during a
press briefing shortly after an elective general assembly that saw him
rising to the most top position of KUTTADRA.
From all indication, the new KUTTADRA boss is poised to
fight fraudsters otherwise known as “4-1-9” or “dealers” who use
yellow-coloured taxis to dupe their victims. Also, the war against
criminality will not just be limited fraudsters, it shall be extended
to bandits who transport their victims in taxis, drug them or
physically harass and then robe them of their property, Ajebe noted.
A keen observer of KUTTADRA activities pointed out that
Ajebe had been very concerned and dedicated much energy to counter the
rising bad phenomenon that taints the image of taxi drivers and Kumba
In another intervention, Akongwi Christopher expressed fear
that fraudulent cab drivers will be severely sanctioned. His reaction
came against the backdrop of statistics showing that more than 80% of
items forgotten by passengers recently in taxis are never declare at
the secretariat. Ajebe told reporters that stringent measures will be
put in place to recover all missing items.
Another pronouncement that was interrupted by a thunderous
applause was the restitution of night duties and the struggle for taxi
drivers to ply 10km from the city center of Kumba. Here, the new
KUTTADRA chief executive officer received an amplified kudos from his
members, with the wish for him to complete his agenda within the next
Enter KUTTADRA elections
The KUTTADRA election was organized by an Independent
Supervisory Electoral Commission (ISEC), under the watchful eyes of
the Second Assistant SDO for Meme, Yongkuma Nelson Gamsi.
Prior to the election, ISEC chairman apologized for the
belated election, attributing the 90days delay to a fire accident that
consumed their office at a building in Kumba Town.
In general, four camps had rigorously campaigned for over
300 registered members. And on hand results obtained by this reporter

Tiah Aleh Kelvin (80votes), and Akongwi Christopher (131 votes). Some

New SWECC President: Nfon V.E Mukete
Members of the South West Chiefs’ Conference (SWECC) have elected a new bureau, with Senator Nfon V.E Mukete at the helm. The election took place at the Kumba City Council Hall during a two day general assembly meeting that ended on Saturday May 31, 2014 in Kumba. Much earlier, the paramount ruler of the Bafaws had been elected to lead the Meme Chiefs’ Conference.
Following SWECC’s principle of rotatory leadership, Chief Ekong William Sakwe of Big Nganjo was elected as Vice President, since it was Meme’s turn to hold the baton after Lebialem.
The electoral college of 60 chiefs, representing the six divisions voted Chief Frizt Gerald Nasako as Secretary General, to be assisted by Chief Tanyi Robinson. Chief Akama Gabriel emerged as Treasurer, while Chief Mbi Orock took up the post of Financial Secretary. The post of Public Relations Officer was lifted by Chief Ejage Francis who will be closely assisted by Chief Eseme Elis. Chief Njombe Njote and Chief Molindo Ekuka are Social Secretary and Vice Social Secretary respectively. The positions of Auditor went to Chief Forjimetaw and Chief Etane, while the Legal Advisers were maintained.
All seems not to be well with SWECC, with some chiefs purporting that their darling conference is declining, The Guardian Post has learnt. On the first day of the confab, traditional rulers shared disparing views over money that was given to SWECC by the head of state during the celebration of Cameroon’s 50TH anniversary of reunification in Buea. While others advocate for the presidential gift to be used to revamp the abandoned secretariat construction project, a greater majority argued that the money was meant to be shared.
Another group of chiefs, amongst them Chief David Motase Ngoh of Bakwa Supe, expressed worries that SWECC is lagging by not being self-sustaining. Chief Motase, like the other chiefs, was not confortable with the fact that SWECC depends largely on donations from elites and contribution by members. In the near future, each village in the South West, will contibute 100 000FCFA for the construction of the house of chiefs, The Guardian Post was hinted. Chief Motase believes a focused leadership at the helm of SWECC will put in place income generating activities and make the group financially viable.
Reacting to a pronouncement made by Chief Dr. Atem Ebako, few independent observers at the Kumba come-together of traditional rulers were indifferent as to the declining nature of SWECC. Chief Dr. Ebako of Talangye noted that between 1994-1997 when he was Secretary General of SWECC, attendance at general assembly meetings usually hit 800. However, the number of registered chiefs by the time he was talking was barely 140. This recent increasing drop in attendance, left many with the impression that SWECC is back-pedalling, since villages have scarely gone extinct or their chiefs die without successors.
Whatever the case, the custodians of tradition, settled on a number of issues, pertinent among them, the construction of SWECC secretariat.
Speaking shortly after assuming the chieftain of SWECC, Nfon V.E Mukete, acknowlegded that for years, SWECC has gone to sleep but they will put on their thinking cap to ensure they make memorable contributions. Nfon Mukete promised that the SWECC secretariat will receive highest attention during his two year mandate.
Decrying the perenial problem of roads in the South West Region, especially rural roads, Nfon Mukete said he will follow authorities to see what is happening about the Kumba- Mamfe road.
Last weekend’s gathering was attended by a cross section of elites and chiefs, with the conspicuous presence of the new fon of Fontem, Fon Asaba Njifua II.
A recent media award has acknowledged David Koulbout Aman,
Senior Divisional Officer for Meme Division, for his uprightness in
handling administrative matters within his jurisdiction.
The senior civil administrator was honoured by Chifu
Edward’s Vanguard Newspaper, in the category of Vanguard Icon Award
for Professional Integrity. Even though David Koulbout Aman was
unavoidably absent in Bamenda, May 31, 2014 to receive the award, it
was conferred on him last week in his Kumba office.
exercised his profession of civil administration with a lot of
prowess, recording negligible flaws.
From this reporter’s diary, David Koulbout Aman appears to
be the first Meme SDO to have a subtle approach in dealing with the
Kumba Bafaw palace. History holds that former SDOs have always find it
difficult in relating with the palace, with the outcome being a
Also, the incumbent Meme SDO is noted to have rigorously
followed up and managed the construction of the new SDO’s edifice.
Presently, users of the SDO’s services can now feel comfortable in
moving within the office, unlike the old colonial building that is
more of a “juju” house.
In addition, Koulbout carefully managed the last municipal
and parliamentary elections in Meme, with no cases of violence. To
many, it was unheard of, for successive elections particularly in
Kumba have been mired by the infiltration of the administration.
Moreover, the laureate stands as that administrator who has
implemented a weekly security meeting in Meme division. Every Tuesday,
security stakeholders converge at the SDO’s office to fine-tune better
strategies to preserve the most cherished law and order. Again,
Koulbout has kept on campaigning against child labour, drug abuse,
banditry and other forms of criminality.
If there is anything David Koulbout will be remembered for
when he leaves Meme, then it should be his more amicable way of
resolving recurrent chieftaincy disputes within Meme. A case in point
that attracted a lot of admiration for the administrator was the
chieftaincy dispute in Mbonge Marumba. Here, the SDO portrayed human
competence and administrative know-how.
Without selling David Koulbout Aman as an impeccable
administrator, he has left much to be cherished as compared to his
Officials of Azi Orphanage in Akale Street, Fiango kumba say they
have saved a wounded baby from the hands of her spiritually possessed
mother last weekend.
The baby girl, aged 6months, arrived the orphanage with some
accident wounds on the head and was accompanied by her biological
mother who left all the way from Nyassoso in Kupe Muanenguba Division.
Unlike other cases were irresponsible mothers abandoned their
babies in hospitals and roadsides, information gotten from the
orphanage indicate that this attempted abandonment was more humane by
a mother of unsound mind.
Mrs. Agnes Azilefack, Directress of Azi Orphanage, told reporters
that the young single mother (names withheld) came to the orphanage
center with the objective of abandoning the baby. Upon
arrival, Mrs. Azilefack who is an ardent pentecostal christian,
realized she was spiritually possessed and opted for deliverance.
The same source noted that the possessed mother was delivered by a
renowned local pastor in a church at Paradise Street in Kumba. “When
she had been delivered, she confessed that her kingdom wanted her to
kill the child. She was initiated at the age of five and has caused
havoc on so many persons, including the brother whom she made
useless”, Azilefack added.
On hand was the young mother who held an innocent and sorrowful
face after her new found faith in Jesus Christ. She readily confirmed
that for the past years, she has been acting under the manipulation of
spirits. She expressed gratitude to an unknown commercial bike rider
who ferried her to the orphanage, without which he child would have
been deprived of life.
The mother and baby will have to stay for a while at the orphanage
for their spiritual and health situation to be monitored respectively.
Thereafter, the mother will return with the child or leave the child
at the center and return home alone, this reporter gathered.
