The ban of Taxis into the University of Buea campus ‘A’ is causing more harm than good to stakeholders of the institution.Throughout the first semester of the 2013/2014 academic year no taxis have be allow to get pass the second gate of the university of Buea campus ‘A’. This decision was taken by the vice chancellor of the university, Dr.Nalova Nyonga following the last strike action, which resulted to serious destruction of school property. Must people thought it was a temporary issue, but so far that perception has be proving false.
During very poor weather conditions ,whether it is severely raining or extremely hot, students are expected to trek for a long distance before they get to class for lectures. Those whom are well verse with the campus A of the University of Buea will bear that when trekking from areas like U-block to Restau is very gruesome and devastating. Pregnant women and handicap students are compelled to go through this horrible situation on weekly bases despite their condition. However this decision by the administration of the university pours down even on lecturers who use public transport as some of them come late for lectures.According to an administrator of the University of Buea who preferred anonymity, said some of the reasons are that, stopping taxis at the second gate of the campus is to enable security guards to check students who dress abruptly and also illegal things are easily smuggled into the campus. He also reiterated that the university is an educational institution and the presents of taxis on campus cause a lot of noise and disorder.
The security trend of the University of Buea has grown from strength to strength in the past years. Recently on campus there is a mélange of both the campus police and the Esoka police so as to ensure law and order.The welfare of students and lecturers as well as the university property need to be protected reasons why the vice chancellor professor Nalova lyonga is doing everything possible to boost security on campus.
The U.B campus police are uniquely dressed in a brown and black uniform and the Esoka security are completely dressed on black uniform and are most exceedingly armed. There are commonly doted all over campus and have evolved from guarding the campus to protecting students and lecturers, enforcing laws, executing decisions taking and maintaining peace as well as order on campus. They also stop and search all incoming and outgoing vehicles. It is hard to hear of rampant cases of theft, rape and act of violence and in the case in the in earlier years. Also the campus police ensure that no activity takes place in the campus after 9 PM and any one leaving the campus with any University property must present an exit ticket from the administration.the campus police have been trained in self-defense, firefighting, investigating and psychology, therefore enables them to become competent in their profession. Even so, the campus police have made considerable success as indecency on campus has greatly reduced and given the University of Buea a new face lift making it a Land of Peace.

Stanley Enow is the first Cameroonian artist nominated for the MTV African Music AwardsNot since the early 90s Cameroon’s popular music has witnessed this level of international recognition. Back then, Makossa was still ruling the African scene, when artists such as Lapiro de Mbanga (R.I.P.), Prince Eyango, Sam Fan Thomas or Charlotte Mbango (R.I.P) where serenading the streets of Lagos, Abidjan, Nairobi or Dar Es Salaam. I still remember when in 2007, from the back seat, listening to a Sam Fan Thomas tune from a Kisumu cab’s stereo. The cab driver, unaware that I was Cameroonian, shared his love for the Makassi artist. The same scenario repeated itself in Kigali few months later, when I rode in a cab filled with Charlotte Mbango’s melodies. I also remember a former classmate of mine from Zambia reminding how Prince Eyango’s “You must calculate” was so popular in Zambia that it competed with the country’s national anthem.
stanley Enow, for this just his first act, seems to have federated all African (hip-hop) urban music lovers with his single “Hein Pere”. The follow up single “TumbuBoss” is not too shabby either. S. Enow is officially the first Cameroonian act that has been nominated for the MTV African Music Awards, which may be a sign of the resurgence of Cameroon’s Music in Africa
