“Leslie Tita, He is con artist, a cheater, the worst possible man you can run into” were the words my friend used when describing Fitz Grant the actor on the show Scandal and yet another Thursday, and yet another an episode of Scandal, and as millions of viewers majority ladies, black ladies for that matter flock infront of their Tvs to watch the award winning show.
I decided some time ago to start watching Scandal after my lady friend advised me to, and I still dont understand why ladies havent abandoned the show.
The main character Olivia Pope is having an Affair with the President of the United States, I mean the last time a president had an affair he was impeached, but yet this sounds to attract viewers religiously every week.
My friend says she doesn’t encourage the relationship Olivia is having, but still loves her but hates Fitz (The Potus), they think he is an asshole, in layman terms they are saying it is his fault if they are in relationship in other words saying, he is con artist, cheater should cut of the relationship because Olivia pope is the victim.
Was Olivia forced to date mr President. I dont think so.
Regardless, I think its an amazing showing an interesting perspective of the society, power struggles and love. Hopefully Olivia decides to break up with the Potus once and for all

“We truly have a choice – but of course we also need surprises. How many of you would believe that we could use only numbers and statistics to build a nation like the United states.
The story I have to tell, will share a perspective, my perspective, I will not enter the bandwagon of negativity neither will I go on a sprint for propaganda. This a story, my story and maybe that of million of others.
My background and family have nothing of extra special, so I thought. My mum is a retired scholar from the western part of Cameroon known as the Bamilekes precisely Bangante but grew up in the anglophone region of the country, she did her studies locally but was offered a scholarship to England where she got her masters from university of Warwick, her tribe however were popularly known for the economic know how, and my father former diplomat and ex Chief Technical Advisor in the Private Sector Development Program of the UNDP, who had the opportunity to dine with Fidel Castro, fancy and has had more far achievements than I can list, but this isn’t about my parents, though as it plays out, you don’t choose which family you are born into, but their achievements will forever change your life regardless..
I would come to discover the Anglophones and the Bamilekes, have often been sought to be highly disregarded and mismanaged, but that is problem I readily acknowledged, because as Charles Swindoll said “life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of what you do about it”
Despite my origins, over the years I had come to developed a deep sense of passion of places and also the belief that though one do not choose where you are born, you can choose what you will become, So, my credo became the acknowledgement and the act. One without the other is self-indulgence. This is what I believed.
“C’est de la Bouyabaise !!!”, the sentence I use each time I find a situation unbelievably ridiculous, and right now that is what I’m saying while writing this. Just to clear out any doubt I am not a hero, an ex-soldier, a millionaire, an ex convict, politician or a child soldier.
I will not be dramatic or self pitying, this is not a #kony2012 campaign.
Though, I may not have invented anything yet or won the lottery or raised a Million dollars for my startup; the fact is as a young adult I face similar challenges any Black – African – Cameroonian would face; finishing with school, career job, thinking of dropping out and focusing on my startup full-time, trying to convince my friends to invest their money in me, reassuring my mother everything is fine, uploading wonderful pictures of me on facebook and keeping up with my emotional life, learning lessons from my past failed relationship, like don’t cheat on your partner, it isnt fair to her and my son David Ive never met.
Instead of focusing on those Ill like to share something else too I believe in fervently, something journalists, authors, critics, and some of my very own people instead harshly criticize and complain about, with a majority of their solutions being nothing but insanely radical.
I believe in the nation of Cameroon
I’ve always wondered if there was something I personally could do for my nation, because the Cameroon I know is beautiful, challenging, corrupt, young, lazy, poor and ambitious, but most importantly, no matter what I think of this country it will continue to thrive in an upward curve, if not for the straightforward reason the is a brink of hope, for everyone. Economists, politicians, journalists and foreign policy experts with their statistics and historical facts may find counter arguments to prove me wrong, but I have come to learn that in life “they are lies, damn lies and statistics”.
While the MAKEwithMOTO tour is done for now, the epic journey continues. Stay tuned for what’s to come. A huge thanks to all our participants for bringing their ideas to life with hackable phones and 3D printing!
When I was younger our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.”
She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else laughed.
My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.
I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA.
He said they love animals very much.
I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal’s office.
I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.
I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal’s office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.
I don’t understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am.
Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most. I told her, “Colonel Sanders.”
Guess where I am now…

Imagine this scenario, you are given an important piece of property to maintain, and your contract last 5 years. At first you are hysterical, happy, you have a great new job, and also the security you will not be fired over the next couple of years, your first days are great, dressing up nicely everyday, treating everybody nice, taking care of the property, consulting your employer for any important decision. Everybody likes you.
Over the next couple of years, you grow incredibly good at your job, earning the respect of your employer, so you consult him less and grow more independent. Your great work earns you an extension for another 5 years. Great right ?
At the 10 year mark, you consider yourself a veteran, an experienced and knowledgeable person who knows it all and needs little outside advice, if you started at 20, now you are 30, do you remember your thought process at age 20 ?
Your ideas about how to run the property evolve with you, and because you believe you had been successful in the past you think you can do this your whole life.
But you see thats where you start getting it wrong.
Your ambition and vision starts to distort your real mission, from taking care of the land you decide to take over the land and next take over your owners. and even though you were hired because you were a great fit, your short sightedness, ego and ambition will cloud your judgement even if that was not your original intent.
At that point you will start suffering from what is called Marlow’s Rhetoric of Self.
Now take a look at Cameroon’s president. he has been in office for the past 30 years, that is two hundred and sixty two thousand eight hundred man hours working.
Can an individual rule for that long ? Yes, but can they rule without self rhetoric ? the human nature proves otherwise.
I read a lot of hate comments and tweets from people on the last 30 years of his presidency, they even started a trend #30ansansmourir (30 years without dieing), why people will wish death unto an individual, still boggles me. He is doing his job as president, keeping peace and stability, on the other hand, the economy has been far from prosperous, it never recovered from the ’92 economic crisis, the unemployment rate is alarming, over 10 million unemployed, and the youth have lost patience, the foundation of any country.
The way out of this will be very excruciatingly painful, challenging and hard ,but I have good news for you. It only gets better from here, a lot of the young people I talk to, are creating businesses, startups, trying to go back to Cameroon, and depending on themselves not the government for their financial success.
Even though some people assume they are prepared for a new president, deep down they are not, research studies shows people hate change, and they are scared of what a new president will do.
Nevertheless I like comparing Paul Biya’s 30 years reign to the evolution of the iPhone, a strong slow repetition of small incremental changes.
Things can change, things will change, things are changing, slowly but surely, painfully but inevitably, Humans were meant to thrive.
Do you have ideas on how we could move forward from here, I’ll love to hear them. why not start a trend #waystomoveforward ?
