Obituary: Biya’s right-hand man, Martin Belinga dies in Switzerland


Martin Belinga Eboutou, former director of the civil cabinet at the presidency of the Republic died Wednesday in Geneva, Switzerland after several months of illness.

Born in 1940, Martin Belinga Eboutou was a career diplomat who was always presented by the Cameroonian press as a centerpiece of the Biya crime syndicate.

The ex-powerful director of the civil cabinet at the presidency of the Republic was fired in March 2018 and replaced by Samuel Mvondo Ayolo.

Since then, Belinga Eboutou was never seen in any ruling CPDM official ceremonies. On several occasions, Cameroon Intelligence Report hinted that he was ill and had been evacuated abroad for treatment.
