The Pan-African weekly magazine Jeune Afrique released on April 21, 2016, its ranking of the most active African Ministers on the Internet, especially on social networks.

A ranking of 22 francophone African countries totaling 675 ministers and deputy ministers. In general, only 196 ministers have a Facebook page, and 129 are present on Twitter.

The newspaper made stop in Cameroon, where Biya (on Facebook and Twitter) prescribed his ministers at the beginning of April 2016 more visibility on social networks. According to Jeune Afrique, which ranks Cameroon second to the last (21st out of 22 with a score of 16.67), “only six Cameroonian ministers have a Facebook page with their name, allowing Cameroon to like them and to follow their news. And only two of them are present on Twitter, which is not the case of the Minister of Communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary (since we have not taken into account ministerial accounts but only those related to the Minister’s name). “

This trend contrasts with that of countries like Rwanda, where all 21 government ministers are present on social networks, Twitter in particular. A trend followed by Senegal and the Ivory Coast, whose governments have recently accentuated their Facebook presence. In the top 5, there is, therefore, Rwanda (143.81), Ivory Coast (129.63), Senegal, 87.10), Benin (86.19) and Tunisia (85.37).
