President Biya is reportedly planning to dismiss some general managers and board chairs of public enterprises, Cameroon Intelligence Report has learned from diplomatic sources in Swiss where the head of state recently had a short holiday. We gathered that Biya will be targeting CEOs and board chairs struggling to cope with old age including those who have spent ten years and above at the head of any state owned corporation.
The Cameroonian chief executive recently gave standing orders that a list be produced for him to take quick action. A very flippant but reliable source hinted CIR that the list carries the names of Marie Claire Nnana, head of the Cameroon Press and Publishing Company (SOPECAM) since 2002; David Nkoto Emane, CEO of the Cameroon Telecommunications (CAMTEL) in office since 2005; Jerome Mvondo, general manager of the Cocoa Development Company (SODECAO) since 2006; Ekoutè Mouangue who has been controlling the Douala Stock Exchange (DSX) for 11 years; Adophe Moudiki, CEO since 1993 of the National Hydrocarbons Corporation (SNH) and Michael Ndoping, CEO of the National Office of Cocoa and Coffee Board (NCCB), in office since 2006.
Our chief intelligence officer in Yaounde who contributed to this report also revealed that Biya intends to sack Dipita Pokossy Doumbe, Chairman of the Board of Directors of CAC, Airports of Cameroon; Hamadjoda Hajoudji, current chairman of both the Public Margins Regulations Agency (ARMP) and the University of Ngaoundere; Ayang Luc, Chairman Board of Directors of ONCC; Jerome Obi Eta, Chairman Board of Directors of the Cameroon Water Utilities (CAMWATER); John Ebong Ngole, Chairman Board of Directors of the National Refinery Company (SONARA); Joseph Owona, Chairman Board of Directors of the Public Debt Recovery Corporation (CBC) and finally René Ze Nguele, Chairman Board of Directors of the Institute of Agricultural Research for Development (IRAD).
