Cameroon Intelligence Report has been informed that some cabinet ministers are currently on the spotlight and may be sacked soonest. Our chief Intel officer hinted that two of the ministers are targeted by the commission created by President Biya to investigate the Eseka train tragedy that claimed the lives of more than 70 people and left 599 wounded.
The first is Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o, Minister of Transport. Sources close to the Philemon Yang administration say, ever since he left the ministry of defence; he has been bullying everyone around the ministry of transport. His highhanded pattern of administration reportedly caused the derailment of the Intercity service 152. Information has now filtered that he gave standing instructions for 8 additional wagons to be added to the train before departure.
Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o made many contradictory statements on the day of the accident that greatly angered public opinion. The Transport Minister acted like a pro-CPDM comedian by denying the railway accident on national radio and television at the time the derailment was actually taking place and later retracted and put the blame on the Cameroon Railway Company, Camrail. We got intelligence that President Biya left him out of the Yang Commission deliberately. According to our informant, Bolloré, Transport & Logistics Cameroun, will not be spared from the ongoing investigations as senior management officials have already been summoned by the judicial police.
Nganou Djoumessi, the Minister of Public Works will have to answer questions on why he did not take proper action after he incessantly got signals from the Divisional Officer of Matomb, Ismaela Nganjifon on the happenings on the Mányai bridge that collapsed and blocked traffic on the Douala-Yaounde highway thereby forcing many travellers to rush to the station for the trip by train.
