Few admitted this year in JMC

Lecturers in the department of Journalism and Mass Communication in the University of Buea, can now heave -a -sigh of relieve after the mass intake last year has been checked, where over 300 students were admitted into the department.

This year in the first list, just 101 undergraduates have been admitted.This move by the University, will certainly go a long way to improve on the teaching conditions in the department as well as check the accommodation problems.

As the Head of department,Henry Muluh says, “The graduate programs in journalism and mass communication are committed to offering a quality program combining professional practice in the media with studies of professional responsibilities and mass audiences”.

Welcome to join them

It has certainly been a successful fight by the lecturers in the department to reduce the number of students admitted each year in the must be department.

Eto’o finally back to the Lions’ Den

Cameroon star Samuel Eto’o has bowed to presidential pressure and agreed to return to the international fold in a bid to help his country qualify for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Eto’o, Africa’s most heavily decorated player, was banned for 15 months (subsequently reduced to eight months) for leading Cameroon’s boycott of a friendly match against Algeria last year.

After serving his ban the former Barcelona striker who is now based with Russian top-flight side Anzhi Makhachkala was recalled to the national squad on August 25, but refused to return, labelling the national side “amateurish and poorly organised”.

But after a word in his ear from Cameroon President Paul Biya, the 31-year-old is now prepared to call off his self-imposed exile and come back into the international fray.

“Samuel Eto’o is returning with the Indomitable Lions,” the four-time African Player of the Year declared on his website.

“After a request from the highest authority in the Republic I agreed to reconsider my position and to put myself at the disposal of the Lions.”

On Tuesday Eto’o held talks with Cameroon Prime Minister Philemon Yang, with Cameroon’s new coach Jean Paul Akono also attending.

I am back

His return is timely with Cameroon requiring a pick-me-up in their attempt to qualify for the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa which starts next January after losing 2-0 to the modest Cape Verde in the first leg of the final round of qualifying.

Cameroon, four time winners of the continental crown, are desperately hoping to make the finals after missing out on the 2012 edition.

Eto’o is set to reclaim the captain’s armband for the return leg against Cape Verde on October 14 in Yaounde.

2 Women Die In Separate Baltimore Shootings

CBS Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — Baltimore police say two women have been killed in separate shootings.

Police say Nana Mensah, 19, was shot in the head while seated in a car parked in the city’s Irvington neighborhood Thursday night. Police say the shooting occurred on South Augusta Ave.

Mensah was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was pronounced dead about 9:45 p.m.

Detectives are looking for a 2-door gray Honda with tinted windows and Chesapeake Bay tags.  Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.

Police say the second shooting occurred in the city’s Cherry Hill area, where the victim told police she had been shot by an unknown passenger she had picked up in the neighborhood Thursday night.

Why always Saintfiet

Belgian coach Tom Saintfiet has hit out at the board of Tanzanian club Yanga for sacking him after just two league games in charge.

Yanga have begun their campaign with a draw and a loss and Saintfiet says that’s not enough to judge him as a coach. “After two games you cannot say we had false start – Mourinho has the best players in Spain but he does not win every game,” he told BBC Sport.

why always me

The 39-year-old made a promising start at Yanga as he lead them to the East and Central African regional club title, the Cecafa Cup, in July this year. The former Ethiopia and Namibia coach was also shocked at the way he lost his job. “We were in a group discussion [with the club’s board], they asked me my opinion about what was going on, I made my my thoughts very clear, but other people had other ideas on how the club should be run, and the club president said you are hereby sacked,” he told BBC Sport.

The club’s vice chairman Clement Sanga said the coach was sacked after failing to enforce discipline among the players. “There was bad relation between the administration and the technical bench, which affected discipline on the pitch,” he explained. “So a decision was taken to sack the coach.”

Following his sacking Saintfiet also complained that many of the players bought before the start of the season were not his choice. “They bought players for their own benefit,” he said. “I had my list, but they bought players who were not needed.” Since he was sacked on Friday evening he says the club has not contacted him about finalising any money he is owed. “I have not heard anything anymore from the club. I have no further information about what the plan is, I have noticed that they talk more about it in the media,” he said.

he was sacked some months ago from the Nigerian super eagles.

Will Biya Come to Buea

As October draws near, many are in doubt if finally Paul Biya will visit Buea, for the celebration of 50 years of Cameroon’s reunification; if there will be any celebration at all!

For there seems to be little or no sign that a celebration of such magnitude will be held in Buea.The Parliamentarian flat still under construction and Buea Mountain hotel still under renovation is a perfect indication that nothing is going to be celebrated in October.

Maybe what seems to be the main sign of preparation is the recent demolition exercise in Buea which has left many homeless.In-fact this exercise which the Mayor says had been overdue come at a time when the Great Soppo market was relocated.

Just because of  ‘one’ person, many persons have little or nothing to eat because of the demolition of their businesses.One question that stands out clear,is that where was the council or town planners when some of these structures were being constructed?

Some of these structures have their plans and were given orders to construct but they now have no choice than to abandon their businesses.

the mayor for Buea Rural Council says  “We have assumed our responsibility for a better tomorrow, in keeping with the vision of the Buea Council. Our approach must not be limited to preparations towards the upcoming celebrations for the 50th Anniversary of the Reunification of Cameroon scheduled to take place in Buea. Our vision requires that “by 2035, Buea should be a strong, economically active Municipality, with adequate and equitable distribution of social infrastructures allowing citizens to live in a secure, healthy and comfortable environment”. Our call is for our citizens to join the Council in pursuing this vision. Let the people of Buea join the Council and answer this call…”

One is tempted to ask what call is it and who will be calling.Oh! maybe the 2035 we are all waiting for,when we will be grandparents.Who is confusing us that Buea will one day be called a city or even urban council?when there are no firms, no road networks and you name the rest.

Lets wait and see!

 

Official calls for Cameroon football peace talks

Robert Atah, a director of the Cameroon FA’s technical body, has said that players and officials need to ‘reconcile’ for the good of the Indomitable Lions.

His comments come after Cameroon lost 2-0 in Cape Verde in the first leg of the final round 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.

Atah traces the problems back to Samuel Eto’o being made captain while former skipper Rigobert Song was still playing.

“There’s a lot of internal conflicts within the players and the administration,” he told BBC Sport.

“That is the main problem and if this problem is not internally solved we can’t expect much from our football.

“The way forward is reconciliation – we know the antagonists, we know the people who are having problems.

//

“It’s players against players and players against executive so they must sit down and reconcile.”

He believes that a lot of the problems within the squad stem from when former coach Paul Le Guen made Eto’o captain.

“When the captainship was transferred from Rigobert Song to Eto’o there were cliques in the squad – those supporting Eto’o’ and those supporting Song,” he explained.

“And from there conflict began between players which has not been solved.

“So you can’t expect them to gather without sitting down to say ‘no if we made a mistake by giving the captainship to Eto’o when Song was still in the team we have accepted our mistakes and want you to forgive us.’

“So we can look in the same direction – if we don’t accept our mistakes there is no way forward.”

Eto’o refused a recall to the Cameroon squad for the match in Cape Verde following his eight-month ban for his part in a player strike last year.

Marseille’s Nicolas Nkoulou captained the Indomitable Lions in Praia.

Cameroon now need to win by three goals in the second leg of the tie on the weekend 12-14 October if they are to qualify for the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa.

They failed to reach the finals earlier this year in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.

Meanwhile a proposed friendly between Cameroon and Egypt on 11 September in Alexandria has been cancelled due to security concerns.

“The Egyptian federation has cancelled the friendly match for security reasons”, a statement from the Cameroon football federation said.
