Atangana Mebara's revelations about Biya's trips to Geneva and Mvomeka'a

From the jails of Kondengui Central Prison, former Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic, Jean-Marie Atangana Mebara finally unveils some of the mysteries surrounding the trips of the Head of State, Paul Biya.

In his autobiographical work "The Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon, Between Myths, Texts and Reality", the former right hand of Paul Biya confides that the latter is "a big worker" despite his multiple trips to the foreign. Trips often criticized in the local and international press.

Below the statement of the former SGPR

I met President BIYA three times in Geneva;each time we had a working session or working sessions at least as long as we had in Yaoundé. I went to meet him one day in his village, for a working session. I had gone by helicopter and I came back in the same way, because the file was of a serious urgency.

I add that, whether he is abroad or in his village, he never told me to stop sending him the files. And as usual, the files were always sent to me the next day or at the latest 48 hours after their sending. I therefore maintain that this President is organizing himself to continue to exercise his powers wherever he may be.

I do not underestimate the financial cost of long stays abroad. But I am convinced that if the majority of Cameroonians saw their essential problems solved, it would be a secondary concern that their President would spend thirty days, twice a year in Geneva, or two weeks every two months in his village.
