The Cameroon Association of English-Speaking Journalists, CAMASEJ has taken steps to improve on its constitution in order to make the body stronger and more vibrant.

To that effect, delegates from the various chapters met in Limbe last weekend to discuss better ways of moving the association forward.

Presiding over the meeting, the National President of CAMASEJ, Jude Viban called on delegates to be frank and sincere in discussions putting the interest of the association first.

He went further to state that the association has come of age and needs to meet the aspirations of its members by producing expected results. For this to happen, the members need to show total commitment, Jude Viban added.

Thus, for over five hours, the various delegates proceeded to analyse various aspects of the constitution which leave room for ambiguity in interpretation. Several proposals were then tabled for discussions but a final adoption can only be reached at during the general assembly slated later this year.

Also at the centre of discussions were the tensions observed from some chapters in the past months as the National President of CAMASEJ called on its members to remain united in adversity as he pledged to make the association stronger and more inclusive.

Coming on the eve of the World Press Freedom Day, the meeting was also an avenue to reflect on the state of the press in Cameroon as well as discuss celebrations at the various chapters.
