The role of the National Assembly in Cameroon is to control government’s actions. The statement from the head of the provisionary bureau, Hon. Koa Mfegue Laurentine Epse Mbede was to raise awareness on the different issues hitting the charts in the country.
She did not mince words when referring to the various scandals like the scandal concerning the murder of the reporter, Martinez Zogo, the killing of His Lordship Jean Marie Benoit Balla, OlembeGate, CovidGate, among others.
“We strongly condemn the reprehensive nature of all the above scandals,” she said.
“All that has to stop.”
Madam Koa Mfegue Laurentine Epse Mbede said Cameroon must not he turned into a land of scandals.
“That is why I wish to remind those who are stewards of public affairs to be beacons of patriotism and moral probity,” she said.
Given that Cameroon is a state of law, the acting president of the National Assembly at the opening plenary sent a message to Cameroonians regarding these scandals especially those pending before the courts.
“I would like to exhort fellow compatriots to exercise restraint and show proof of discernment,” she said, adding that “no person can legitimately act in the place of such institutions”.
Aware of the fact that Cameroonians have been disappointed in the past and left with unanswered questions, Hon. Koa Mfegue Laurentine siad people should have confidence in the Head of State and the country’s judiciary.
She enjoined all and sundry to shun from taking recourse to the social media or lynching people on the media for it will not make it possible for the truth to prevail and for justice to be administered.
“I am very convinced that we will only contribute to the destruction of our country if our digital platforms, print media outlets, radio stations and television channels are awash with character of assasination, calls for mob justice among others.”
The Nation’s representatives on the occasion urged government to compel those guilty of glaring aberrations to pay for such aberrations by constantly upholding the rule of law over might.
