Can Andrew Motanga stem the anger in Fako IA?
By Now Fuanya in Limbe
All fingers in the city of Limbe are now crossed waiting to see if the Government Delegate and outgoing Section President of the now defunct Fako I Section of the CPDM will be able to scale through in the face of anger of CPDM militants who have said he is trying to use means not prescribed by the party texts to hang on as Section President of Fako IA. The fuming militants vomited their anger last Monday 19 October 2015 during the launching of the reorganization exercise in Limbe I.
Disgruntled militants argued that since 2002, Andrew Motanga Monjimba has been the president of the then Fako I Section which covered the entire geographical area of the then Limbe Urban Council. In 2007, the council area was split into Limbe I, II and III subdivisions. Motanga became the mayor of the Limbe II council, militating in the Mokundange sub section and voting there. Mokundange, they hold, is also where he lives.
However, very recently the enlarged Fako I section was split into three vizFako IA, IB and IC. These new sections cover the land area in Limbe I, Limbe II and Limbe III respectively. And the text for the reorganization states that persons aspiring to positions of responsibility at the grassroots level must have militated in the sub section and must be resident in the area.
