Camair-Co and CPDM management: Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o is either committing the same errors or falling into spectacular new ones
A Boeing 737 of the national airline, Camair-Co was seized on September the 16th in Johannesburg, South Africa, following an action brought by the lessor (owner) of the unit. The plane is still in South Africa because of consecutive default in payments by Camair-Co. The head office in Douala with a new general manager, Ernest Dikoum is maintaining a kind of silence of the lamb. The Minister of Transport, Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o is in Montreal, Canada for a three day aviation meeting.
Cameroon Concord News Group is aware the Prime Minister has been informed of the situation. The plane was taken to the Republic of South Africa for maintenance when the seizure occurred. Minister Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o and his assistant, Mefiro Ousmarou are at daggers-drawn positions and not reading from the same script. Both CPDM big men have disagreed on every item on the Camair-Co recovery plan. As we write, the newly appointed GM, Ernest Dikoum has still not been able to make the trip to Canada due to lack of finance. Our chief executive left the United Nations and travelled directly to his private hotel room in Swiss.
Salaries have not been paid for months. The sister plane to the Boeing 737 currently stationed in Douala is badly in need of new seats. All correspondence from Camair-Co to the CPDM government and other interested parties are now being signed by the Secretary running the head office in Douala. Ernest Dikoum is yet to put pen to paper ever since he was appointed.
It is now evident that Minister Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o is either committing the same errors or falling into spectacular new ones. This begs the question: Who is really in charge of Camair-Co and the so-called recovery plan?
Our chief intelligence officer in the Littoral region gave us a CPDM answer that as regards to Camair-Co, Cameroonians should remain focused on two current priorities: developing an action plan “very short term” and related operations at the end of the pilgrimage (Hajj) to Mecca – more specifically return flights, which have already begun. Long Live the Biya Francophone Beti-Ewondo government.
