Cameroon’s minister of territoal administration, Paul Atanga Nji has over the years had his share of criticism from the Cameroonian public for his slip of the tongue moments in interviews and public outings.
On each of these ravaging moments, social media has gone wild with the creation of memes, videos, posts, and slangs that have gone viral on the Internet
1. ‘Burrying The Bereaved’
‘Burrying the bereaved’ seemed to be the earliest of them all. It was in 2019 when the minister was talking about some aid and assistance from the government to citizens who had lost family members
The minister said the government will give them assistance to ‘bury the bereaved’.
The interview went viral as many were posting to ask how possible it is that a bereaved person is buried instead of the dead.
2. ‘The Boyses In The Bushes’
‘The boyses in the bushes’ came in January 2020.
In another interview, the minister, when talking about separatist fighters in their camps, referred to them as the ‘boyses in the bushes’
Since then, Cameroonians took to social media, mocking the wrong tenses in his language.
A deejay even remixed those seconds of the interview into a two minutes mixed track.
‘Boyses In The Bushes’ was the title of the hit which got thousands of views online
