Below is the briefing note received from candidate Cabral Libii's campaign team



THERE IS DANGER IN DELAY.

To everyone's surprise, the organizing team of the "GIGA MEETING" of Cabral Libii candidate UNIVERS party in the presidential election of October 7 has just learned against all expectations the ban of this life-size event. The sub-prefect of Douala 5 evokes as a fallacious reason the unavailability of the Cicam stadium on September 23, yet the document published here was issued last Sunday by whom, after payment and cash payment of the occupancy costs of said stadium.

Two important things to remember:

1- This morning, while the members of the organizing team headed by the dynamic Comrade Jean Louis Batoum are in the waiting room of the famous sub-prefect of Douala 5th for the withdrawal of the receipt of public demonstration, they see out of the office of the latter the director of the stadium with whom they divide sympathetically then separate by serenely agreeing to the appointment of Sunday. Question: if the reason of the refusal evoked really holds, what can explain that it has not then said anything to them at this time and even less since the date of payment of the amount required for the rental of the stadium?

2- Unpublished thing, the sub-prefect of Douala 5th not only forced our comrades to sign the discharge of the ban, but he called on his collaborators to the rescue so that they force ours to withdraw the ban to the limit of sequestration. What can explain why a sub-prefect convinced to act in accordance with the law is obliged to engage in such intimidated acts of intimidation?

These questions and many others reinforce the idea that a Machiavellian plan hatched by the administrative authority and the camp opposite is in the pay of this shameful maneuver. But it is also and above all the proof of what our candidate Cabral Libii is scared and that his candidacy worries seriously.

After an emergency meeting that we have just held under the supervision of Prof. Prosper Nkou Mvondo, Political Operational Captain of the UNIVERS party and Campaign Director of Candidate Cabral Libii, we take the decision to maintain the date, place and time of the said MEETING and take witness to the national and international opinion, Elecam and the authorities in the face of this serious violation of our rights.

Let it be clear, our approach to this day legalistic, republican and non-violent should in no way be interpreted as fear or cowardice. Let anyone know that we have been prepared for such maneuvers ever since, but never again will we let ourselves be trampled on as long as we are convinced of our rights. Let it be heard and considered for the sake of hearing!
