The Member of Parliament for Bamenda-Bali, the Hon. Fobi Nchinda has dole out 2 million FCFA as part of his parliamentary grant to orphans and the needy children in Bali subdivision, at a ceremony that took place at the Bali Grand Stand at Ntanfoang on September 15, 2014.

“At the beginning of our mandate it’s important to remind our self of the message of social democracy, where we address our self to the weakest of our society, to empower everybody beginning from the weakest down all the way up” he said.

Each of the 100 children drawn from very poor background, many of whom are orphans, from primary and secondary schools across the subdivision received 15 000 frs each, intended to assist their education.

Most of the parents and guardians welcomed the gesture which they described as very timely. “I have been struggling to get some of the basic text book for my daughter in class 4, and with this, am sure I will be able to buy the reader and pay the PTA levy”  Mrs. Nyemkuna Regina, an aunt to one of the beneficiary confided in Pidgin English.

The MP and said his entire micro grants this year has been directed to the orphans of his constituency and warned against parents and guardians using this money for other purpose.

 On why the choice of orphans, the MP answered “Are they not Cameroonians? They are entitled to it and they are more entitled to it than anyone else”

Hon. Nchinda used the occasion to enlighten the over 1000 parents, guardians, teachers, students and pupils of some recent happening in parliament.  Key amongst these were the fight to create a petroleum depot in Bamenda as a means to reduce the price of hydrocarbon products and the recent effect of a price hike on the ordinary Cameroonians, the mass admission of Anglophones into professional schools and colleges of the university of Bamenda which has been hijacked by French speaking candidates and for the road between Yaoundé and Bamenda which has been reconstructed from  Yaounde up to Babajou to be extended up to Bamenda.

Hon. Nchinda also called on the general public to collaborate with law officers to weed out Boko Haram elements from Cameroon and went further to cautioned any one from tagging Boko Haram to Muslim as Muslim faithfuls also suffer from this group of militants that are using the gun and radicalism to achieve political and religious aims.

Before Bali, the MP had been to Bamenda III where he dished out a similar amount to the same number of kids. From Bali he will be in Bamenda II and I where he is expected to give out scholarships of 15 000 FCFA each to over 400 children in both subdivisions.

Still in Bali, the MP also handed to the Naka and Ngwatkan development committees, culvert rings and cement worth over 400 000 FRS.
