Frankline Njume alias Agent Frank has been mourning on Twitter, Facebook, and WhatsApp since he was sacked from Government Bilingual High School (GBHS) Mendong where he was serving as Bursar.
Ekume Frankline Njume, an elementary school teacher who shot to prominence due to his xenophobic crusades against people of the North West Region was fired on February 15, 2021.
Pauline Nalova Lyonga Egbe, Cameroon’s Minister of Secondary Education is said to have appointed the primary school teacher on grounds that he openly shows hate for the people of the North West Region and claims to be fighting armed separatists.
Just as he sang his way to the appointment on social media, he also shared his work and sack on social media.
Njume, the double standards agent
when Nalova Lyonga was named Minister of secondary Education on March 2, 2018. Two days after, Frankline Njume took to Facebook praising her as the best thing that has ever happened to Cameroon.
To Nalova Lyonga’s critics, Njume said, “Leave Mama Nalova alone to mind the business of her new assignment. Those who nurse grudges against her, should go and pick their clothes where they had their bath. She is a square peg, appointed to man a ministry that falls very well within her competence.”
Reading Njume’s numerous social media outings supporting the government against separatists and weighing his hate for the average North West man, Nalova Lyonga appointed Ekume Frankline Njume to serve as Bursar of GBHS Mendong in Yaoundé.
True to his double-faced nature, Frankline Njume wanted to eat from Minister Nalova Lyonga’s table and from the table of her enemies at the same time. Matters came to a head when Njume started publishing anti-Nalova Lyonga information on Facebook.
Did the gods make him mad?
Agent Frank’s shoulders had grown above his head and the appointed as Bursar were his wings. He saw himself well connected to the powerbase in Yaounde. He brandished photos of himself at Unity Palace and at other venues where food was on the table.
During the Major National Dialogue, the primary school teacher paraded around with a badge meant for journalists. In fact, he had the freedom to information at the event more than practicing media professionals.
Apparently feeling too important, Njume quickly found Nalova irrelevant. After all, he has eaten at Unity Palace and at the Prime Minister’s house.
As it is the case when the gods want to kill somebody, Njume became mad. In his madness, he attacked everybody, even those who fed him.
When Njume sensed hitches in the discharge of his duties as Bursar, he rushed to social media with the details. He must have found himself more qualified than his principal, who knows?
Njume, the crybaby
In tears, Njume tweeted, “For those who did not understand the French on that appointment piece of paper, I Frankline Njume have been completely SACKED as the BURSAR, for reasons best known to the Honourable Minister of Secondary Education, Professor Pauline Nalova Lyonga!”
In a bid to attract sympathy, the crybaby proceeded to Facebook to pour out his emotions.
“I HAVE BEEN SACKED AS BURSAR! The small appointment they gave me has just been taken away from me, but Jesus Is Above All The Masters,” he said. “My name is nowhere to be found on the list of Bursars in all the 10 regions of Cameroon. I have been SACKED, that’s the word!”
“All for God! In thee I rest my case,” he sobbed.
As many rather celebrated his disappointment, he sought solace in the words of Psalms 35, begging God to oppose those who oppose him and fight those who fight against him. He went on to recite, “Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.”
Frankline Njume has indeed been used and dumped by the very regime he spent sleepless nights to support.
The law of karma at play
But what did he expect when he goes about insulting women, exposing people’s private lives on social media, and uses vulgar language on women.
But since a man can only reap what he sows, Njume is drowning in his own tears.
He has been insinuating that those who hatched the decision to sack him are no different from Ambazonia armed fighters.
“Ambazonia knows that their independence is as impossible as the impossibility of anyone causing me to hate Cameroon,” he tweeted. “Anyone who does anything against patriots that gives ambazonia cause to jubilate is an ambazonian!”
Since Saturday, the xenophobic Njume seems to be fighting hard to mend his ways with the Anglophone community.
“I am no longer excited in seeing the dead bodies of rebels, we have seen enough! O God please bring our brothers back to their senses,” he said in a post on February 20. “Isn’t it easier to say yes to peace than to continue fighting till God knows when?”
As Njume continues to cry and seek help from the high and mighty in Yaoundé, Minister Nalova Lyonga signed a note returning him to the Minister of Basic Education. The Secondary Education Minister maybe for old time’s sake, decided to continue paying Njume’s salary from her ministry’s budget under 2021 fades out.
Before anyone feels of themself too important in Cameroon, they should turn their eyes to the Kondengui Central Prison and see how the mighty have fallen.
