Friday Nov. 21. 2008 was a night like no other to go down in history as the first conflict resolution and reconciliation meeting of all wings of the party in the USA. Since installation in 2008 the party leadership faced certain operational conflicts which in the long run if not addressed and properly resolved may help to destroy. Leadership got together the night before the joint conference to iron out some of those burning issues such as Finances, the relationships between the organs, installation of new Sub-Sections, leadership style and Communication breakdown in party rank and file. The heat was on but this was necessary to clear the path for a better CPDM USA, with the greatest vision focusing on Nation Building and intergrating the Cameroon diaspora in decision making and policy issues affecting all of us and our future generations.
It was certainly a long night but millitants remained committed to completing the goals and objectives of the night, tabling all possible issues to be addressed.
Comrade Lawrence Elonge from Albany New York a Potential Branch President rolls the camera on all the action of the night. It must be quite an animation to have captured. Yes he did capture the moments of just how passionate the CPDMers can be sometimes in the midst of Oye ye ye ye ye.......lol. I am sure the footage will make quite an exciting viewing eventhough we have no word yet from our Producer on the release date....lol. Comrade Jackson Nanje spotted above in the picture, in the red top and black hat showing some Southern hospitality to our delegates.
On a very serious note, important issues were addressed and sometimes these issues appeared very uncomfortable for Section leadership but the purpose of this leadership meeting was to look into all such issues that have held back the CPDM Section in many ways. Finance was key in the deliberations. Resolutions were tabled and the Section Leadership Promised to follow up. Militants called on the leadership to put the house in order for the good of the party.
After all deliberations were over, all militants united in celebrating and wishing Mrs Patience Tamfu a happy B'day, she turned 16 on this special day..... don't ask me how the gig went down......I know it was fun.....lol
