Abstract

When Cameroon was admitted into the Highly Indebted Poor Countries Initiative (HIPCI), government officials were relieved. However, the expectations of Cameroonians increased when the country met the requirements for the decision and completion points. The researcher, who used the survey research methodology to randomly gather information from respondents in South West Region, examined the role of the political class in shaping the direction of the economy, quality of governance and level of poverty. The paper which took exceptions in the above contending complexities within the context of HIPCI in Cameroon and the fact that no World Bank economic partnership agreement had benefited the Africans, it concluded that except the government and people of Cameroon accept to execute government projects without fraudulent practices, the institutionalization of good governance and the eradication of poverty and corruption in South West Region and Cameroon in general will remain a veritable mirage.
