The FECAFOOT Normalisation Committee has decided to part ways with the winner of the 2017 AFCON. Hugo Broos is no longer the coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon. His contract was terminated Monday following a resolution of the Normalisation Committee, which currently manages the day-to-day affairs of the Cameroon Football Federation (Fécafoot). The Belgian technician leaves the Cameroonian team two months from the end of his contract (February 2018) Broos is accused of failing to qualify the Indomitable Lions for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Arrived at the helm of the indomitable Lions in 2015, the former Club Brugge coach unexpectedly won the 2017 AFCON with Cameroon but reports also have it that he’s failed to respect clauses of his contract amongst which is his long stay abroad when he’s expected to be in Cameroon. His replacement is not yet announced.
Cameroon’s Minister of Higher Education JacquesFameNdongohas announced that PresidentPaulBiya has added ‘bonus’ laptops to the much awaited 500000 promised to University students registered during the 2016/2017 academic year. Going by this new development, some laptops will be added to the 500000 promised and delayed to be delivered. The minister has only said that these to be added laptops will be given to students registered this 2017/2018 academic year but he’s not said the number of laptops to be added.
My comment: I think this is another delay tactic as it will certainly take more than a year to produce these ‘bonus’ laptops and consequently closed to two years to deliver all the promised laptops to students. The financial adjustments of the original contract with the Chinese laptops manufacturing firm and the timeframe of production is what I can’t say for now.
12 May 2017 is a special day in the life and educational career of Mr Julius Tata Nfor, a native of Bondu-Tabenken.
He’s defended his PhD thesis in the Department of Geography of the Faculty of Letters and Social Sciences, University of Dschang. Closed to 400 pages of work titled: Climate Variability And Water Resource Management By Pastoralists In The Nkambe Plateau Of North West Cameroon: Constraints, Adaptations And Prospects.
Julius Tata Nfor‘s defense had Prof. Kuete Martin(UDS) and Dr. Achankeng Eric(Uba) as supervisors, Prof. Bring Christophe(UNdéré) and Prof. Lambi Cornelius(UB) as members of Jury and Prof. Tsalefack Maurice(UDS) as the President of the Jury. The defense lasted from 2:57pm to 5:54pm at the Conference Hall of the Faculty of Law and Political Science.
It’s worthy to know that Julius Tata Nfor(now Dr. Julius Tata Nfor) is the first anglophone to defend a PhD thesis in the Department of Geography, University of Dschang since it’s creation in 1993. You’ll accept with me if you know him that, Julius Tata Nfor aka JT is a very hardworking man. I stayed with him during my first and second years here in Dschang and I know when he reads.
Without dwelling much on the content of his work, Dr Julius Tata Nfor is that man we can put our weight behind; he’s got a good knowledge of the environment of Nkambe and the increasing environmental threats that have closed to a decade now been identified as a top level worldwide problem.
Dr Julius Tata Nfor is in the right position to deal with the current farmer-grazier related problems and the recent hijack of farmers lands in the North West region of Cameroon by the so called wealthy elites.
Following suggestions, critics and corrections made by the jury, the final document is expected to witness some modifications.
He’s been awarded Mansion Très Honorable.
We’ll one day celebrate Professor Julius Tata Nfor.
You’re an inspiration for struggling anglophones in Dschang, Africa and the world.
