    More Olympic dossers to support

    BBC News - London Olympics: Cameroon athletes 'abscond'

    London Olympics: Cameroon athletes 'abscond'

    Seven Cameroonian athletes have disappeared while in Britain for the Olympics, officials said.
    David Ojong, the head of the Cameroon delegation, said five boxers, a swimmer and a female football player had been missing since the weekend.
    The reason for their disappearance is not known, amid some reports that they wanted to stay in the UK for economic reasons.
    Mr Ojong said the athletes had visas allowing them to stay until November.
    "What began as rumour has finally turned out to be true," Mr Ojong said, in a letter sent to the Cameroonian sports ministry.
    "Seven Cameroonian athletes who participated at the 2012 London Olympic Games have disappeared from the Olympic Village."
    A reserve goalkeeper for the women's soccer team, Drusille Ngako, was the first to vanish, according to Mr Ojong.
    She disappeared while her teammates left for Coventry for their last preparatory encounter against New Zealand, he said.
    Her disappearance was followed by that of swimmer Paul Ekane Edingue, reportedly along with his personal belongings.
    The five boxers who had been eliminated from the games disappeared from London's Olympic village on Sunday, Mr Ojong said.
    They were named as Thomas Essomba, Christian Donfack Adjoufack, Abdon Mewoli, Blaise Yepmou Mendouo and Serge Ambomo.
    The home office said it could not comment on whether any of the seven had sought asylum in the country, the Associated Press reports.
    According to the news agency, it is not the first case of its kind, with Sudan's embassy confirming last month that three athletes had gone missing.
    One had applied for asylum and the other two were expected to do so, reports AP
    So, yet another positive aspect of the games for the Olympic lovers on here to cream themselves over which benefits the country no end.

    What's the betting they'll get granted asylum, despite Cameroon being a stable nation at peace, and get put right to the front of the housing list? I'd put money on it, after all the UK is facing a drastic shortage of spear chuckers to contribute their skills to our wonderful multicultural society.

    ^What do you think the legacy of the US' neo-colonialist aspirations will be in years to come?

    I predict it'll include more of your civilians dying a horrific death at the hands of some A-rabs - Som nom fucking na.

    To be sure....one and the same. Anglo-American historic consequences come back to haunt.

    Not an apologist. Nor find invented nationalism something to admire.

    A plague on both their houses.

    Partly maybe, maybe just an excuse. Whichever, it's a case of simple opportunity.

    Had any other nation you care to think of had similar opportunity, it would surely have been taken with similar or, more likely, worse consequences.

    It's a card loser nations play. The fantasy world of all live in peace, harmony and equality is tedious at best. Better, if you wish to call a plague, to call it on all humanity.

    The Australians and "Team" GB had similar misgivings until they started winning Olympic medals for their "new" country.

    Now they want to stay to "develop their career" in the UK. Fuck 'em, last time I checked we already had more than our fair share of violent black men:

    Cameroon Olympians want to box in UK after 'threats'

    Cameroonian boxers who deserted their Olympic squad have told the BBC they want to stay in the UK to develop their careers.
    The five boxers, who met the BBC at a secret location in London, went missing more than a week ago.
    Cameroonian authorities said they suspected the boxers wanted to be economic migrants.
    The boxers said they had absconded after they were threatened by senior members of the Cameroonian delegation.
    Last week, swimmer Paul Ekane Edingue and female footballer Drusille Ngako also went missing from the Olympic village.

    The boxers - Thomas Essomba, Christian Donfack Adjoufack, Abdon Mewoli, Blaise Yepmou Mendouo and Serge Ambomo - said that there was no support for athletes in Cameroon.
    In the BBC interview, Essomba said the boxers were looking for a sponsor to take them on and to help them obtain long-term residency.
    "We are not staying here because we don't like our country, but [because we] want to practise the sports we love," he said.
    "We want to become professional. We cannot return to Cameroon... if we return, we will not practise anymore."
    Mendouo said Cameroonian officials had treated them badly during the Olympics - and there had been differences over their promised bonuses, which had been halved.
    "Cameroonian authorities threatened us - those who brought us to these Games," he said.
    "When a colleague was defeated, he was asked to give his passport."
    The head of the Cameroon delegation to the Olympics, David Ojong, said the boxers were lying.
    They had never been threatened and were making up the allegation to justify their desertion, he said.
    The boxers have a visa to stay in the UK until November.

    Yet more:

    DR Congo Olympians 'missing' in London

    Four members of the Democratic Republic of Congo's Olympic delegation have gone missing in London, reports say.
    Cedric Mandembo, who competed in judo, and coaches with the athletics, boxing and judo teams have not been seen since the closing ceremony on Sunday.
    The DR Congo - represented in London by four athletes - failed to win a single medal. The delegation is due to fly back home later this week.
    More than a week ago, five Cameroonian boxers deserted their Olympic squad.
    The boxers told the BBC they wanted to stay in the UK to develop their careers.
    'I don't know'
    Mandembo competed in the +100kg (220lb) category in London, but lost his first match after 49 seconds.
    The four other missing Congolese officials are reportedly boxing coach Blaise Bekwa, athletics coach Guy Nkita and judo coach Ibula Masengo.
    Congolese Sports Minister Baudoin said he did not know much about the disappearances.
    "I don't know. I left London this morning (Monday)," the minister was quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.
    "Yesterday (Sunday) I was with officials before the closing ceremony. They gave me a report that everything was going well," he added.
    The DR Congo has been ravaged by decades of war, and remains mired in poverty despite its mineral riches.
    I'd say the Congolese will definitely get given the right to stay, the Cameroonians shouldn't be eligible to stay but probably will anyway knowing our joke of an immigration system. Yet more fucking Africans, great.

    Damn it, I was told they were favourites for the Olympic Hide and Seek Gold Medal.

    Then again, someone did point out how the Chinese swimming team had come on since the Morecambe Bay training fiasco.

    I'm surprised it was so few. Just what the fuck colonialism has to do with anything I don't know. they simply want to stay here as the UK is the soft touch of the world. What other country would give immigrants over 5000 UK pounds a month to pay their rent alone ? That is before they start claiming for everything else under the sun.
    As far as colonialism goers then the white man should be put back in charge of the African continent. Name me one country that has gone from strength to strength since evicting the white man ?
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !
