The President of the Cameroon Professional Football League, Pierre Semengue has sack his Secretary General, Francis Laibe Wapi.

Laibe Wapi was sacked for signing a joint communique following the tripartite meeting with the sports Minister last week during which it was agreed that the clubs were to get state subvention without any conditionality.

Semengue during a press briefing in Yaoundé maintained that he followed the communique on radio like every other Cameroonian.

“The Secretary General had no mandate to sign on my behalf. I called the Minister severally on that day and was told that I was not invited to the meeting.”

“This means I was side-lined and since my Secretary General committed an offense, I have no option than to sack him”, he said.

“I have appointed Madame Therese Manguele as interim Secretary General”.

Semengue maintained that the championship would not start on May 11 as earlier agree with club Presidents represented by Emile Onambele Zibi and the Minister of Sports and Physical Education.

To him, all clubs have to transform to public liability companies. “I cannot be party to violation of the law interpreted by the President of the Supreme Court”.

“I too, have decided to condition the replay of the championship to the transformation of clubs or a reaction from government on the said transformation.

Stating that he has taken a serious decision whose consequences he is ready to assume, Semengue said Fifa evaluation is billed for 2014 and he would not want to see Cameroon deprived of an international license.
