Kleptocracy has become an accepted fact of Cameroonian life described by the proverb: “The goat grazes where it is tied.” The government controlled formal sector, like its colonial predecessor, is essentially parasitical. An informal sector has emerged parallel to it which increasingly supplies the daily subsistence needs of the people.
Cameroon’s bifurcated economy is also reflected in its schizophrenic education system. Cameroonians flock to the universities to acquire a neo-colonial education which ill-prepares them for the actual needs of the local economy.
