MRC Protests: the Governor of the Littoral criticizes the walkers

Last Saturday, the police cracked down on a march by Cameroon Renaissance Movement (MRC) activists in Douala. This unauthorized demonstration - called "No to the electoral hold" - aimed to protest against the results of the presidential election of October 7, proclaimed by the Constitutional Council.

A "small group" that only seeks to create buzz, disrupted public order. Those who walked did not even reach a hundred people, "said Littoral Governor Samuel Dieudonné Ivaha Diboua in an interview with Cameroon Tribune on October 29, 2018.

The boss of the region said that the MRC had no authorization. Moreover, he says, the MRC will never have authorization for public demonstration "as long as this political party tries to question the results of a presidential election proclaimed by the Constitutional Council. The MRC will never have authorization in this sense in Douala.

This is why the authorities in Douala have deployed law enforcement forces on the ground. To believe the governor, even before the deployment of law enforcement, the city of Douala 90% is against this disorder. "I want proof that last Saturday, if this population wanted this disorder, all people would have taken to the streets," he says.

The MRC plays with the fire

"Those who have been arrested do not even reach a hundred. For a city like Douala, if only a hundred people decide to question the established order, I think there is reason to believe that these people have fun. I reiterate that this is a small group. And it is for me the occasion to say that we have found that in this political party, there are responsible militants, attached to the republican values, while some unfortunately play with fire ".

Samuel Dieudonne Ivaha Diboua also castigated the attitude of Michèle Ndoki."You see someone who goes to bed in a ditch and asks that we come and kill him (...) We are not in a scene of movie shooting. The government does not kill citizens. It protects them regardless of their political affiliation. We do not need this rough assembly. "
