Cameroon: 369 teachers summoned to Yaounde 0

Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe, Cameroon’s Minister of Secondary Education (MINESEC), has summoned 369 teachers to Yaounde. Cameroon Concord News gathered that the 369 have been called by the MINESEC boss to justify the authenticity of their deeds of engagement with the Cameroon government.

The MINESEC move is aim at giving marginalized institutions genuine teachers.  New teachers assigned in the hinterland, often desert their duty stations and make use of various subterfuges, ending up in major cities and specifically in Douala, Yaoundé, Bafoussam, or other regional capitals that offer the minimum of modernity.

In the new policy, Minister Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe wants to change things. He intends to have sufficient quantity and quality in all public secondary schools including a dedicated staff. After the clean-up campaign, those teachers found guilty of having used false deeds of engagement will be ruthlessly crushed.
