    Hello, thanks for the news on the appointment of a new apostolic nucio but I wish to find out, how come he was appointed by the former Pope (Benedict xvi) instead of the current pope (francis)

    CRTV de honte !!! Pope Benedict XVI ? Voilà où va l’impôt des Camerounais. C’est le Pape François (Pope Francis).

      Merci pour la vigilance, c’est corrigé.

    Please, can this article be corrected. Pope Benedict resigned in 2013. The said Pope, who had resigned, cannot therefore be the one to appoint the Apostolic Nuncio to Cameroon in 2018. Besides, the link at the bottom of this article does not carry the entire story. It only takes the reader to the list of past Apostolic Nuncios to Cameroon. It will be good to specify. Besides, the link closes your website and this is unprofessional. Thank you.
