Alain Noël Mekulu Mvondo, the general manager of the National Social Insurance Fund (CNPS) is facing serious accusations of financial malpractice and embezzlement. For some weeks now, journalists have been presenting evidence of embezzlement on television and on the Internet, which has overwhelmed the all powerful Francophone social security boss.
According to the documents recently made public, the GM of the National Social Insurance Fund is living a princely lifestyle and has cumulative advantages worth over 2 billion CFA francs (over 3 million euros) in his 8 years at the head of the fund, while in Cameroon, according to figures published by the National Institute of Statistics ) in its Ecam 2014 survey, 37.5% of the population live on less than 1 dollar a day with some civil servants earning 36 270 FCFA (55 euros) a month.
The docile Francophone public opinion was mostly shocked by the princely advantages of this new generation Beti Ewondo leader who perfectly illustrates the gap between the ruling elite and the ordinary citizen. He denies that he has filed a lawsuit against journalists who are responsible for the denunciations but explained on Tuesday evening, during a an interview with Canal 2, that his salary is not what some passionate spirits evoke.
