Dear Mr. Ben


Do you, Sir, remember the lowly scribe you readily dismissed with a good measure of scorn and loathing ? Well, I am still here, Sir, and I hold no grudges. But I could gloat, rightfully so, because I told you and I told my readership that you couldn’t deliver on your idle promise. The unfolding demise of your mildly unethical relationship with Mr. Tombi was largely predicted, but I am not going to get cock-a-hoop about it, because deep down, Sir, I feel for you and I am a very sensitive scribe.

Le 19 septembre 2016

You are nothing, Sir. At best, perhaps, a useful pawn in a game that is way over your head and understanding. From my vantage point here in Babimbi-Ouest, I see a sorry underdog. And I always had a soft spot for underdogs like you, so I am siding up with you against them. I dare argue here that in all of Cameroon, Sir, I am probably the only man alive who would consider buying a second-hand jalopy from you. I love you, Mr. Ben, I do apologize for hurting your feelings the first time around. So please, listen to me.

Run, Sir, just disappear. Get lost. Go sleep. You won’t build anything, you can’t build anything. You have nothing to show for, you have zero achievements in the ever expanding field of dreams that is Cameroonian football. You have been had. The stunt some mightier souls were about to pull blew in their faces when Mr. Akoa sternly refused to play the game.

The fat lady has sung. Game over. But before you exit, I should mention here that I did not at all appreciate your attitude the last time around. You questioned my professionalism. Fair enough. But I wasmiffed at your lame attempt at arousing public support and sympathy by pitting the diaspora – the well-wishing, benevolent, rich, the bleeding-heart sort – against us, the wretched Cameroonians back home in dire need of hand-outs and assistance. Don’t go there anymore, Sir, I could get downright peeved. I pack a mean pen.

You once were a man of the cloth I believe, so I would direct you, while on your way to oblivion, to Ezechiel 25:17 : “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men”. Regards, Sir Ben.

    What a nasty message to a brother with a good intention, that has a wrong associate called Tombi.
    I shouldn’t be make a comment to a message intended to Mr Ben. since it’s public, I am not guilty.
    On the other hand this Shakespeare’s English is difficult to understand to impact popular view and make Mr Ben feel as a loser.

    Mistakes are often the best teachers in this life. I can not understand, why a pseudo professional of civil engineering like Mr Ben Modo forgot to insure his deal with Tombi. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Whether in Washington or in Yaounde, Without a letter of credit, no professional starts a job in civil engineering. Business is war. Maybe a sharp tongue does not mean that you have a keen mind. Instead fighting against Leon Gwod, it was better to do your homework Mr Ben Modo. The great pity to see the pot calling the kettle black (Ben Modo-Tombi), is only the result of incompetence or failure of know-how. To look for a white bitch giving online the impression to truly have a big acknowledgment in civil engineering or to be a big Management and to fall down so miserable, is a shame. When two people quarrel, a third rejoices. Maybe Léon Gwod choices the wrong bible´s citation. I propose.
    Exodus 7:17
    ’Thus says the LORD, "By this you shall know that I am the LORD : behold, I will strike the water that is in the Nile with the staff that is in my hand, and it will be turned to blood.

    Yes, Perhaps Engineer Modo’s title (coming from America) rings big but is now just a name. He was dealing with petty men who exibit their pettiness everywhere with no qualms of conscience and he ignored that fact ; turning his axe to the wrong direction. Now, he is even more petty than those guys or maybe even worse. Why ? Because it’s a long time ; infact, since I began to gain consciousness of how projects of that magnitude are executed in modern times, I never noticed anywhere or anytime, people using pickaxes and hoes. As Gwod rightly says, he should count himself out !!!!! he won’t be able to construct half a stadium !!!

    Leon Gwod,or whatever you called yourself.Stop fanning flames between two Cameroonians.Look for another job to do rather than going after two Cameroonians who have a mis-understanding.
    Whoever is incompetent here,be it Ben Modo or Tombi,they are going to sort that out and they will move on.This is not the first time we are hearing that contractors and their employers are having disagreement, or contractors failing to meet up with deadline.So,stop making it a big story.Until you are giving bible quotations.
    My advice to you is that you should look for another profession.Or If you want to continue your journalism profession,than be professional about it.Again,stop fanning flames.

    The role of a journalist is to inform the general public and draw their attention to malpractices in our society. I am sorry to differ with one of our forumist who thinks its normal not to meet contract deadlines.
