Calixthe Beyala crucifies Kamto and resurrects Cabral Libii and Joshua Osih

Calixthe Beyala gave an interview to C'Koment magazine, available on newsstands on March 31, 2019. If she looks back on her rich and long career as a writer, the Franco-Cameroonian takes the opportunity to give his opinion on political life in Cameroon. And the least we can say is that it does not carry the opponent Maurice Kamto to heart.

"I did not really appreciate Kamto, not as a man, but by that kind of lie that he constantly surrounds. Who questioned me a lot as a woman, as a citizen, as an intellectual. I found him dishonest, I did not like at all that statement that he would have won an election he did not win because it's obvious he did not win. I mean it's obvious, we do not need to invent the powder when we see how much the CPDM is implanted in the country, it's impossible today. The CPDM could even present a cat that this cat will win. I'm sorry to say so, "says the author of the novel" Naked Woman, Black Woman ".

The intellectual attributes to the leader of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC) the responsibility for the rise of the tribal discourse. "I did not appreciate that a politician, whom I considered to be a politician of the future, for 2025, lies. And that he leads with him, a fringe of the Cameroonian population, in the hatred of the other, in tribalism, because as soon as you say that Kamto wrongly, it is said that you are a tribalist, it is systematic, everyone is tribalist. That is to say, 90% of Cameroonians who have not been voted Kamto are tribalists, "she said.

"The important thing for Mr. Kamto is not the well-being of the Cameroonian people or Cameroon, the important thing for him is to be in power, at any price and by all means. And that, I find it a shame, while pan-Africanism is moving forward, there are people who want to take us back to the past, "adds Calixthe Beyala.

A charge against Maurice Kamto, but good points distributed to Cabral Libii of the Movement Eleven Million Citizens and Joshua Osih of the Social Democratic Front (SDF). "I was passionate about the elections (presidential October 7, 2018 Ed); I had guys like Cabral Libii who interested me a lot by their reflections, their projections, because of the calm because a politician must be calm and reassuring and this boy seemed very reassuring about the future. Same for the one called Osih who also seemed to me very weighted, who knows how to recognize what is and propose things to move forward. This is the kind of politicians that Cameroon needs for tomorrow, "says the writer.
