Biya Re-election: the ignored role of Chantal Biya


The social works of the first lady relieve the suffering of many needy. And voters remembered it in the voting booth at the last presidential election.

It is obvious. The works of the First Lady speak. It has invested two important sectors of the social life of the country: health and education. From Synergies Africaines, to the Chantal Biya Foundation, to the Chantal Biya International Reference Center (Circb), health occupies a prominent place, and the fight against AIDS a fixation.

The reduction of the contamination of AIDS from mother to child, the prevention of HIV / AIDS through awareness campaigns, research on possible therapeutic or vaccine molecules against HIV mobilizes internationally renowned researchers at Circb. Some observers of socio-political life suggest that by these actions, Chantal Biya is in permanent campaign for her husband.

Woman of the people

At each exit, she has always demonstrated her close proximity to the population. She often foils the protocol, going to take baths of crowd, to exchange with some people. We still remember this edition of March 8 when the First Lady joined the women parading on the Boulevard du 20 mai in Yaounde. It does not miss many popular events: the evening of the Miss Cameroon election, Canal 2'Or, the March 08 parade on the occasion of International Women's Day. It recognizes the merit of having given the popular character of this day in Cameroon which is celebrated like nowhere else in the world.

Very close to the people, the mother of orphans and the disinherited, sung by the artists and adulated by the underprivileged of society who express their eternal gratitude, Chantal Biya has seduced inside and outside the borders of Cameroon . Its action is recognized at the level of international institutions. Thus, the honorary president of the Organization of Women of the Cameroonian People's Democratic Movement (Ofrdpc) was made Special Ambassador of UN-AIDS, Golden Winner with Cordon of the Grand Prix Humanitaire de France (GPHF), Goodwill Ambassador of Unesco, Commander of the International Order of Civil Protection.

His altruism and spontaneity, which are his qualities much appreciated by the public, have certainly enabled candidate Biya to win the last presidential election with a score of 71.28% of the votes cast. It is undeniable that Chantal Biya mobilizes within the population. The sympathy capital it has built is not insignificant.

The popular and destitute masses are also those who will be permeable to her speech, to that of her husband and to all those who are their representatives: ministers, directors general of companies, elected officials and various political elites. An asset and a chance for the president who will then harvest in the field of his wife.

An 'associate' of Paul Biya seeks a death sentence for Maurice Kamto


The president of the political party "Republicans", claims the death penalty for the leader of the MRC, Maurice Kamto, today imprisoned in the framework of the white marches of January 26.

George Gilbert Baongla has no mercy for Maurice Kamto, who is, according to him, the only person responsible for the ransacking of the Cameroonian embassy in Paris.

Indeed, during a broadcast on TVG Live online media, the one who presents himself as eldest son of President Paul Biya was very angry at the attack on the Cameroonian Embassy in Paris.

For George Gilbert Baongla, Maurice Kamto is the only one responsible, and he must for that, pay the high price "he is in prison, and he will pay the price. I ask for a capital punishment ... It must be a case study ... There is nothing to do. People must stop believing that the republic belongs to them and that we are not all Cameroonians, "he says.

Charged among others for "insurrection and hostility against the fatherland," the leader of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC), Maurice Kamto, is now in custody in Kondengui main prison, as well as several of his supporters.

He was placed under arrest warrant, on the night of 12 to 13 February 2019, by the investigating judge of the Yaounde Military Court.

The politician was detained since 28 January at the Special Operations Group (GSO), following the organization of a peaceful march against the "hold up" election of October 2018; market which had previously been banned by the authorities.

The story that government members do not know about Cameroon, here is the story


After the creation of the Union of the Populations of Cameroon in 1948, this party arouses a strong adhesion of all the Cameroonians who want the end of the colonization. Synonym of: brutality, ensaivagement, rapes and others.

Its secretary general, RUBEN UM NYOBE is Bassa'a. But he has around him Bamou, Bamileke, nationals of the Far North, Beti and others. He seduces beyond the Bamileke people. Faced with the rise of the UPC, the administration created false parties that fail to break through the rise of the UPC.

In 1955, a whole set of marches are organized in Cameroon by the UPC. They are all forbidden and repressed by the Colonial administration. On May 22, 1955, the French army fired live ammunition on protesters with their bare hands. Instead of apologizing, June 13, 1956 is rather the UPC is prohibited. Some of his leaders arrested. And this is how Um Nyobe went into hiding and started the war in the Bassa country.

Because the UPC was far from being in fact a tribal but nationalist party, the other communities joined the struggle and mainly the Bamileke is how the war also begins in Bamileke country that will know in 1970.

Today Cameroonians boast that independence has not been granted. That they took up arms. And are proud of it. But my God. Why do not you say that the UPC was called the Bassa party when all the ethnic groups were in this fight? Because you know that the UPC was not tribal but was fighting for the good of Cameroonians who suffered from French colonization.

Today in Cameroon we have the Biya regime supported by France. Maurice KAMTO was the best candidate. Better profile. Best program. During the presidential elections, all kinds of parties were mounted against him. For two years you have been told that the MRC is a party of Bamileke while it is the party that has the most diversity all parties in Cameroon.

On January 26, 2019, as on May 20, 1955, Paul Biya's army fired on protesters with their bare hands. Even stop passersby.Throws them in jail and some come to say that Paul Biya, bloody dictator in power for 36 years is right. Because KAMTO has violated the laws (they speak of a great lawyer) and that it is the Bamileke who disturb. My God.

If in 1955, Um Nyobe had not had the courage to brave the prohibitions of demonstrations. If the other ethnic groups had not supported the Bassa in the face of the repression that was coming down on them, we would never be independent.

I simply have tears in my eyes at this threshold of ignorance.

That is why against the regime Biya, a regime supported by France, a colonial regime must support Maurice KAMTO and Bamileke Because it is a national liberation struggle. Against 36 years of misfortune.This is not tribalism but resistance to a regime of thugs. Scissors (hired killers).

Ambazonia: what Macron advised Paul Biya that he refuses to follow


While his French masters invite all the people to take part in a national dialogue to definitively solve the crisis of yellow vests launched there is barely 2 months, in Cameroon, "the best student of France" seems rather turned towards a resolution, by arms, of the English crisis that shakes Cameroon for almost 3 years.

To reduce all English dissidents to silence, this is the last resolution just taken by the Cameroonian Head of State. "If the call to lay down the weapons that I launched to war contractors remains unanswered, the defense and security forces will be instructed to neutralize them. ", He said yesterday on the facebook page of the Presidency of the Republic.

This ultimatum Paul Biya comes at the same time that in France his counterpart Emmanuel Macron calls all the French people to dialogue to find definitive solutions to the crisis of yellow vests, which jeopardizes the security and the French institutions since last October. According to Emmanuel Macron, the French proposals "will allow to build a new contract for the Nation, to structure the action of the Government and the Parliament, but also the positions of France at European and international level".

Paul Biya, pure sugar product of France, who claimed under the former President François Mitterrand to be the best student of the metropolis did he not assimilated his lessons? At the beginning, this crisis would never have begun if the Cameroonian Head of State had been in favor of the dialogue.

Despite incessant calls for dialogue, both from the opposition, the Church, and the international community, Paul Biya opposed all these proposals and favored the logic of decay, which today forces him to opt for total militarization of the conflict zones.

For proof, let us quote the correspondences of Ni John Fru Ndi, Akere Muna, Christopher Fomunyoh, all addressed to the president of the Republic and in which they called to the dialogue; The blockade imposed by Sdf deputies at the National Assembly during the 2017 budget session; or the "all anglophone conference", initiated by Cardinal Christian Tumi, are among other initiatives of dialogue refuted without a way by the regime in place. Instead, Paul Biya and his government attempted a state trick by sending government emissaries to meet the English-speaking separatists.

This step, which was nothing more than an underwater dialogue, under a background of corruption, ended in a bitter failure. In addition, Paul Biya unilaterally increased the number of decrees, from the creation of the Bilingualism and Multiculturalism Commission to the Disarmament Committee and the Humanitarian Assistance Plan, which until now have not been able to provide early resolution of this internal crisis which, after nearly 3 years, has already made more than 20,000 refugees and thousands of deaths.

Following Emmanuel Macron, will Paul Biya attempt a catch-up? Nothing suggests for the moment a possible flipping jacket. Unless perhaps his masters impose on him, the head of the Cameroonian state seems rather decided to silence the English-speaking impulses by the weapons.

Cameroon Crisis: Kumba population protest, tired of secession


This Saturday, the atmosphere of the city of Kumba was shaped by a demonstration of the local population to call for the reign of peace and the return to the heart.

Indeed, sources close to the editorial 237actu.com, report that most residents of the city of Kumba, located in the department of Granny, southwestern region, are released en masse to express their ras-le - face the atrocities committed by the separatist fighters of the "Ambazonia" state.


In addition, demonstrators composed of persons of all classes combined;motorcycle and taxi drivers, street vendors, the elderly and many others, were holding posters that read: "we are tired of insecurity and gunshots", in other words, saying that they are tired of the insecurity that reigns since 2016.
                 

Recall that the English crisis that began as a joke in 2016, intensified in regular fighting between secessionists and soldiers of the Cameroonian army.

More than a week ago, people living in English-speaking areas were forced to stay home for 10 days, following the slogan of the leaders of the virtual state of Ambazonia. However, they breathed again the area of ​​freedom this Friday. But the question is: how long?

Kamto case: Calixthe Beyala speaks angrily about the MRC activists

They are violent, very violent, dishonest, insulting, very rude. Calixthe


The renowned writer explains that it is the lack of adhesion of the collaborators of the head of state and the populations who have harmed his projects and companies. She invites her detractors to compare her work that she considers more imposing and that of her predecessor.

Calixthe Beyala was the guest of the Decryption program (Vision 4) on February 15, 2019. The renowned novelist was interviewed on several topics including her tense relations with supporters of the president of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC) Maurice Kamto. "I'm not tough on Maurice Kamto. I am tough vis-à-vis the passionate and almost gangsteric reactions it causes. I am against the dishonesty surrounding its surroundings. They are violent, are dishonest, very violent, insulting, very rude. It looks like they have an extremely reduced vocabulary.  Whose lexical field revolves around the lower abdomen, "she explained declaring that Cabral Libii's supporters and their leader are more assertive and respectful.

Addressing the assessment of the President of the Republic Paul Biya, Calixthe Beyala has been careful to relativize the opinions that make it a bitter failure. "He started a lot of jobs at once.He tried to open up everywhere. Without doing grandiose somewhere. But do a little bit. It's the perception that I have. For example, people say to you, "Ah yes, Abidjan is better built". But when you abducted Abidjan comments is the rest of the country? But in Cameroon, you have a few paved roads, hospitals, schools. That is to say, we could have done better if everyone had also put goodwill in it.Because, a state is not a person, it is a group of people. Whether ministers or ordinary citizens.

Calixthe Beyala therefore points out "general incivism" and invites us to compare his work with that of his predecessor. "I did not say that Biya's stewardship is fabulous, I said I've made progress. We could have done better.When I was little, we had only a few high schools. Today there are high schools at every corner of the neighborhood. He built them. You can not take things away from him. It can not be removed that before there were some streets in Douala, today there are everywhere. People when they talk about it, there are no projections about the past. He worked this boy. But he could have done better.

Cameroon Crisis: the last solution, the most convincing proposed to Biya


A well-known professor and a senior official in Cameroon said the lingering tensions in the north-west and south-west regions could be reduced by 40 percent if the head of state freed the imprisoned ambazonia leaders.

"If at 18 hours, the head of state releases all those arrested, including leaders, within a maximum of one week, the problems will be solved at about 40%. The more you brutalize and stop fighters, the more you radicalize young people, "said Professor George Orock Enow.

The director of the Buea Regional Hospital added that the arrest of moderates gave way to the radicals and that due to the mismanagement of the crisis by the government, the situation was deteriorating.

"Opportunities to solve this crisis have been missed. People have been radicalized. So many people are dead. government soldiers, civilians and combatants, "he lamented.

Professor Enow Orock believes that the only way out of the current stalemate is to grant an amnesty to all those who are in prison and to sit down at a round table.

"Whatever happens, there must be a round table. Even in two, five or ten years. And when the time comes, the biggest question will be whether all the bloodshed was worth it. Contrary to what the Honorable Joseph Wirba said, the anglophone problem might not sink in Cameroon. The country could learn from this crisis and sit down together on a common table to find a solution to all the problems that undermine the country.

"Why do not you sit down on the round table now and save more lives? Questioned Professor Enow George.

The professor did not mince words condemning what he called the role of the government in worsening the crisis.

He used a saying to paint the painting more.

Hear it: "You do not call a dog with a stick in your hand and you expect him to come. Even if you are the master or you use several baits.

"The government has a duty to preserve the unity, the integrity of the state and to ensure the safety of people and property. Government is nothing without the people. If government voters have grievances, the government has to listen to them. There is no weakness to give an attentive ear. "

He concluded by emphasizing the need to reduce the military presence.

"When you send a soldier into a conflict situation like this, you have two options: either shoot or get shot. The government should reduce the number of soldiers on the ground. There must also be a de-escalation on both sides. The local population is suffering the consequences. "

'Kamto's wife is a Sardinard, I will fight her' Calibri Calibro


The wife of the president of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC) does not seem to be in the good graces of the Anti-Sardinards Brigade, a movement of the Cameroonian diaspora in France.

This is in any case what can be deduced from the words of Calibri Calibro, one of the initiators of the movement.

In a recent interview with online TV channel Diaf Tv, the activist has made it clear that her movement intends to target Ms. Julie Kamto if she ever comes to France.

"I have always said that I support President Kamto, but I do not accept that his wife works in the Sardinards government that there is in Cameroon. Kamto's wife is a Sardinard like the others so we will fight her as well as the other Sardinards if she arrives in Paris, "said Calibri Calibro (43rd minute of the video).

In the aftermath of the attack on Cameroon's embassy in Paris last January, several people had said that the Anti-Sardinards Brigade who had claimed the act was in the pay of the MRC.

Suspicions quickly refuted by Calibri Calibro who indicates never having been in contact with Maurice Kamto or another member of the MRC management team.

As a reminder, the wife of Maurice Kamto had been appointed by the Head of State to the post of Inspector General of the Ministry of Foreign Relations. His appointment had created a lot of stir in the opinion.

Ambazonia: Exchange of gun fire at Kumba Yesterday morning, one gendarme killed


Exchanges of fire were heard Saturday morning in Kumba, capital of the department of Granny, one of the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon theaters since the end of 2017 a conflict between the army and armed separatists, according to witnesses.

"We heard gunshots this morning at 8:30 am and for half an hour at Kumba Main Gate" Kumba's central market, a witness told Camer.be in the late morning by telephone, pointing out that he had seen military exchange shots with heavily armed men.

"Separatist fighters have invaded several corners of the Kumba Central Market and have begun to shoot at the positions of the military and the police, who have fought back with no success with a military vehicle completely destroyed by the impact of the bullets." another witness said to Camer.be, adding that "several businesses have remained closed this Saturday, a big market day".

"The shooting has stopped now," added a third witness to Camer.be at 15:30.

A gendarme killed the day before in Kumba

Also in this city, a gendarme was killed in the night from Thursday to Friday in Kumba.

According to our sources, the events occurred at the Kake Police-Gendarmerie Joint Control Station.

The deceased policeman had moved to reload his mobile phone. He was surprised by a stranger who stabbed him in the back, before fleeing. When his colleagues arrived, it was already too late.

In the English-speaking part of Cameroon, since the end of 2017, fighting has regularly pitted the security forces against scattered groups of armed separatists who, hidden in the rainforest, attack gendarmeries and schools and multiply kidnappings.

According to the UN, 437,000 people have been displaced by the conflict in English-speaking areas and more than 32,000 have fled to neighboring Nigeria.

Cameroon Crisis: Shocking photos show humiliation of Ambazonians by BIR soldiers


Several members of the Cameroon government elite force, the Rapid Intervention Battalion, BIR deployed to Southern Cameroons are posting disturbing photos on their face book pages on the humiliation they are meting out to Southern Cameroons young men and women. The BIR soldiers from the Beti Ewondo clan in the Central Region are also observing that it is fun time with Ambazonian detainees.  However, what they are showing doesn’t exactly match the international community’s idea of fun.

Cameroon Intelligence Report’s Kingsley Betek covering the crisis in Southern Cameroons noted that the photos posted by French Cameroun army soldiers were shot during the recent lockdown ordered by the Ambazonian Interim Government.  One of the Francophone soldiers who spoke to our correspondent in Molyko, Buea but sued for anonymity said he has realized that what Defense Minister Joseph Beti Assomo told them to do in English speaking Cameroon is wrong. He further observed that many of his Francophone colleagues who have been killing innocent Southern Cameroonian civilians have private videos of the atrocities but were unsure of how to release them without being arrested by the Biya regime.

The photos show the systematic humiliation of innocent Southern Cameroons civilians in the hands of French Cameroun soldiers. The French Cameroun military abuse is physical mental and emotional. “In my eyes, the suffering that the Cameroon army has put on our Anglophone brothers and sisters is complete and total” noted a young Francophone commander who was recently withdrawn from Southern Cameroons and deployed to the Far North region. He added that “Anglophone public anger should not be directed towards the soldiers but towards President Biya and the ruling CPDM that trained them.”

According to Kingsley Betek, all the photos released this week by Francophone army soldiers of the Rapid Intervention Battalion were taken in both the Northern and the Southern Zones of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.

Cameroon Crisis: The UN ready to move into Cameroon


For more than two years, Southern Cameroonians have been calling on the UN and other global organizations to come to their rescue, but their plea seemed to have fallen on deaf ears. The world’s silence has made many Southern Cameroonians to think that they have been left to their own devices. They argue that the world is either ignoring them or does not consider their issue as important as other issues that have earned the UN’s attention.

But the UN and the world are not ignoring the people of Southern Cameroons who have been marginalized and discriminated against for more than five decades. The UN is a slow and expensive machine to run because of the way it was set up after the Second World War and it has protocols it has to follow before coming with a resolution to deploy its staff or troops.

It is easier for the UN to deploy a skeleton staff than to deploy troops as it depends on its member countries for troops. In many cases, it has to negotiate with the country’s government and for more than two years the Yaounde government has turned down all appeals by the international community for external mediation or intervention.

For some time now, many UN specialized agencies have been seeking to set foot in Cameroon, but their efforts have met with government refusal. The government is wary of the UN coming into the country as that might reduce its ability to falsify information on the reality on the ground. The presence of UN bodies in the country might also make it hard for the government to continue with its killing spree.

However, the Red Cross, the World Food Program, UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, etc are already operating on the ground to provide humanitarian assistance, though their efforts are being hampered by government decisions and gimmicks.

Indeed, to circumvent government obstruction, Cameroon has been placed under the cluster category which implies the global body no longer needs the government’s permission to intervene. Clusters are groups of humanitarian organizations, both UN and non-UN, in each of the main sectors of humanitarian action. They are designed by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) and have clear responsibility for coordination. This partially explains why the government has stepped up its military operations in the two English-speaking regions of the country in recent days.

With many UN bodies on the ground now, the right information is heading to Washington, Ottawa, London and New York and this is no good news to the Biya regime that has worked hard to deceive foreign governments that it has been fighting a bunch of terrorists who are intent on destabilizing the entire country.

The Yaounde government has employed many public relations firms to spread its gospel of falsehood in Western capitals and this has been one reason why the international community has been slow at having a good understanding of the real situation that is playing out in the country’s Northwest and Southwest regions.

The Yaounde government has always insisted that with limited foreign assistance, it will be capable of rolling back the “terrorists” and the world has believed this story for more than two years. But the Yaounde government’s refusal and insistence that it will handle the problem without external help are gradually unraveling as the beleaguered government is slowly running out of financial options.

While the French are still propping the Yaounde government, many of the country’s traditional partners and donors have finally come to terms with the fact that it will be hard conducting business with a regime that does not see the need for dialogue and democracy as key factors in economic development.

The government is out of cash and it is seeking ways of replenishing its coffers. The World Bank, the African Development Bank and the International Monetary Fund are currently withholding millions in loans and grants from the Yaounde government. Many projects have already been approved for financing in the two English-speaking regions of the country, but the hostilities in the region make it hard to implement those projects.

The ring road in the Northwest region has already been approved for financing by the African Development Bank and the World Bank, but the two multilateral development finance institutions have withheld the money until hostilities stop in the region.

Both institutions have urged the government to restore peace in the country if it wants to continue benefiting from non-concessional resources raised from global capital markets. Like the United States, Canada and Britain, multilateral institutions are urging the government to grant the United Nations unfettered access to the regions where the fighting is taking place so that humanitarian assistance can reach those in need.

As usual, Canada is using its leadership role in global politics to call for multilateral action that will lead to a comprehensive and inclusive dialogue that will deal with all the issues that have resulted in the conflict. This has given the United Nations more power to start thinking of drafting a resolution that will enable it to deploy both troops and staff in the two English-speaking regions of the country.

A source close to the United Nations in New York, which has elected anonymity, has hinted that the days ahead will lead to the drafting of a UN resolution that will urge members to contribute troops for peace-keeping purposes in Cameroon.

Last week, the UN Secretary General met with Cameroon’s Prime Minister, Dion Ngute, in Addis Ababa, on the sidelines of the Heads of State summit, where they discussed the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the country. The UN Secretary General urged the government of Cameroon to take the right steps to restore peace to the country. Mr. Dion Ngute, for his part, assured the UN Secretary General of the government willingness and determination to restore peace in the coming days.

But events over the last couple of days have proven that the Yaounde government is not up to the task. Its determination to win the war by military means is escalating things and this has resulted in the deaths of thousands of Cameroonians, a situation that has caused the international community to hold that external mediation is necessary, a point underscored by our source at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

“I think the government of Cameroon is out of steam. It has continuously refused appeals by the United Nations for external intervention and mediation of the conflict in the two English-speaking regions, but seeing the way things are unfolding, the UN has to step in to play a key role. The country is down financially, and many development projects have been put off. This is not good for the country’s long-term economic development,” the source said.

“The government cannot win a military victory in the two English-speaking regions of the country. The fighters have proven that it is hard to put an end to the conflict without addressing the root cause of the problem. After two years, I think it is time to think of other options. The military option is a disaster and it will only make things worse if the government continues to hold that it is the best option. Many lives have been lost and there is nothing to show for the money spent and lives lost,” our source regretted.

“With pressure coming especially from the United States and Canada in the United Nations, it is obvious that a peace-keeping force will be heading to Cameroon in the days ahead. Our specialized agencies are already on the ground, though on a small scale, but with pressure mounting and multilateral institutions also calling for an end to hostilities, the government of Cameroon is going to cave in anytime, soon,” he stressed.

“It is true that the Cameroon situation is challenging as the fighting is taking place in all towns and villages in the two regions at the same time, but UN officials are already brainstorming on how to end the hostilities first, as there cannot be any effective humanitarian operations if the hostilities are still going on. UN diplomats are working the phones to convince the government that an inclusive dialogue will the best way out of the crisis, although the government is still reluctant to accept UN proposals,” our source revealed.

Meanwhile, on the ground in Bamenda and Buea, it is proving challenging for the UN to find the proper infrastructure for its operations. The two regions are bereft of proper housing and office building which will accommodate UN staff and their offices.

In Buea, in particular, it is challenging to find strategically located story buildings that will enable the global body to conduct its operations confidently and professionally. Besides physical infrastructure, Internet connection and telecommunication facilities in both regions are unreliable, a UN source in Buea said.

“We have been looking for proper accommodation in Buea and Bamenda, but it is a little challenging. We need accommodation and office space that will not expose our staff to any danger in the event of any hostilities between the two warring factions,” our source said.

Meanwhile, as the fighting rages on, the country’s economy continues to suffer. The country’s seaport is witnessing a huge business shortage, especially as some countries like the Central African Republic and Chad have opted to use other seaports in the region.

For more than two years, the country has not been receiving revenues from the customs and border posts that were located in the English-speaking regions. Ekok, Otu and other border posts have been abandoned as the conflict escalates and this is a huge financial blow to a cash-strapped government.

If the UN does not step in, the country will continue its relentless descend to financial hell and it will be challenging to disarm the fighters who do not trust the government. Many diplomats around the world hold that only the UN will be able to do the job that the country’s disarmament commission has been assigned, as English-speaking Cameroonians, especially the fighters do not trust the government.

The news of the arrival of the UN has been welcomed by many people in the two English-speaking regions of the country and many are looking forward to the coming of the global body which will help them live a life without gunshots and maybe create a few jobs that will help reboot the economies of the two regions.

On January 24th, your favorite newspaper, Muta (dixit yourself) put on the front page a man like the Manufacturer in manufacture every two millennia: John of God, the new Minister for Justice, John of God (for the intimate), the last convert of Popol.

"To be a minister, according to Momo".The title is just as dashing as the colossus of one meter ninety, black suit, straight look, which flattens the red carpet (symbol of power so desired) the weight of his 110kg (he had to take Since then, John of God speaks to you, so Jddm attended his first ministerial council at the Unity Palace on January 16, the last one certainly, since this guy only once every five years in Cameroon. "He was impressed while waiting for the President of the Republic, I was very worried and then a door opened in my back, I did not know it was a door and he came out straight in. I jumped, everyone got up. "

Exactly like in the mafia movies. The entry of Al Capone ... "I was happy (like a bishop of Cameroon who is found for the first time in front of the Holy Father, note of the mutant) and I said: here are the people who build this country", adds John of God.Yes, they are indeed 65 Cameroon builders. And then, "I felt the enormous weight of responsibility hanging over my shoulders. Fortunately, he has them wide enough, his shoulders, the Jdd!

Then we learn that "these people we see from the outside are working. We work all the files of the Republic and those of elsewhere. In simple words. It is our ministers who handle the cases of Rca, Gabon, Russia, France (yes, yellow vests), United States, Venezuela, etc. And Cameroon is doing so well! John of God continues, "You go into the office at 8 am, at midnight, you're still there."

Words of a marveled. The Buyam-sellam market Mvog Mbi Yaounde is better, she spends the night under the stars, waiting for the delivery of the goods. "I do not want to disappoint this man. Beg the minister. Sorry, it's already done! With this case where you put Bamilekes and Jews in the same holocaust sauce, a Sunday night, live from the Crtv! Moreover, here is the reaction of the Supreme Popol on this subject: "Akie! Just arrived and the pit is already filled? From source!

And then, hands raised to heaven as in a pagan dance, John of God says: "Paul Biya is a sacrificed, I want to be like him. Help me help him, help me help you. A sacrificed like Joan of Arc, it's true.

As for us, how are we going to help you help a man who goes to the stake to save us? Complicated, no? Paul Biya, "It's someone who bears all the responsibility of our country on the head. ", Says Momo.It is the saying that is caricatural.Our president carries Cameroon like camel his hump. Without ever moaning!

As an epitaph. "I swore to give what I have so that the Cameroonian people recognize the benefits of this president." Promise of Jean de Dieu ... Lagaffe.

H.E Ayuk Tabe, Maurice Kamto: Paul Biya wants to kill two birds with one stone


The cynic Biya regime, unable to face the political, economic and social which are those of Cameroon, simply chose to simply endure, to be able to enjoy power, to die in power..

To this, a quasi-scientific laboratory was set up with the aim of atomizing the Cameroonian society in order to break in it any capacity of social organization and thus of coordinated action which could endanger the interests of the establishment policy.

In this approach, Anglophone Cameroon and the MRC phenomenon are major concerns for political power in Yaoundé.This is why, in an enterprise of disinformation, demonization and marginalization, elements of the targeted entities are associated, whose main characteristics are: intellectual ignorance, moral indigence and material greed.

Thus, in the spraying industry of the English-speaking entity and the Bamileke entity, which is criticized successively for its secessionist tendencies and support for Professor KAMTO, in his quest for power, internal relays to these sociological groups have were recruited to know the English-speaking, ATANGA NJI and the Bamileke, Jean De Dieu MOMO.

The news of the day is that of the indigestible and destitute media outlet of Me Jean De Dieu MOMO, is part of a process initiated well before the presidential election, which MOMO now ensures the tribal relay as Bamileke , that is, of the same ethnic group as Maurice KAMTO. It consists in presenting Maurice KAMTO as the President of the Bamileke revenge, of the Bamileke hegemony, the enemies of Cameroon, from whom it is absolutely necessary to protect oneself.

This refers to the triptych elaborated and lapped in the laboratories of tribal hate piloted by Mathias OWONA NGUINI: Meute-Tribale-Tontinard whose finality for power is to isolate Maurice KAMTO politically by dividing Cameroonians.

This strategy was divided into three stages: before the presidential election, during the presidential election and after the presidential election.

In the first stage, straw candidates were raised and financed across the country to crumble the potentially favorable voices of Maurice KAMTO, who for the cause was presented outrageously coarse as the candidate. 'a tribe.

In the second phase, all the alliance strategies that could lead to the emergence of a single candidacy were torpedoed by the power to isolate Mr. KAMTO who over the course of the campaign was demonstrating his roll compressor.

In the third step, isolate KAMTO in its claim of victory by dissuading other unfortunate candidates, by the means of corruption and the prospect of a redistribution of the cards, in this case political folding seats on the occasion of the next consultations election.

In this logic, the rest of the opposition appears as an objective ally of YAOUNDE's illegitimate power from which it naturally expects a return of lift through the upcoming elections (municipal, regional and legislative) that would allow in the order Institutional Paul BIYA (37th edition) to redistribute maps and to tell the results of what the new forces of the opposition and its new leader.

In this game, the arrest of KAMTO appears for them as a real bargain. The political behavior of the rest of the opposition in the coming days will refine this analysis.

Kondengui: Kamto celebrated his 65th birthday with H. E Sisiku Ayuk Tabe this Friday


For calling on his activists to demonstrate peacefully, the MRC president was thrown into the same prison as some formidable Boko Haram activists and the Civil War in the English-speaking regions.

This Friday, February 15, 2019, Maurice Kamto is a year older. For the first time in his life, the internationally renowned professor of international law spent his birthday in prison.

In his capacity as National President of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC), opposition political party, he called his activists and sympathizers to demonstrate peacefully on January 26, 2019 throughout the country to denounce electoral fraud and the mismanagement of the country by the regime of Paul Biya in power for 37 years.

The authorities who had deployed the police to put down the demonstrators, have been indicted to the Military Court of Yaounde, the leader of the MRC for acts of hostility against the party, insurrection, insulting the head of state. Some of these charges are punishable by death.

While waiting to be presented to an examining magistrate for the rest of the proceedings, Maurice Kamto was thrown into the main prison of Kondengui, a prison built on the remains of the ex-mixed Brigade Mobile (BMM), sadly old place of torture for political prisoners.

The candidate ranked second at the end of the presidential election of October 07, 2018, does not discover this prison environment. He spent a few days there in 1985 for "daring" to criticize a book by the philosopher Hubert Mono Ndjana devoted to "the social idea at Paul Biya". He returned there on the morning of Wednesday, February 13, 2019, 34 years after his first experience.

This time, the political opponent most feared by the Biya regime coexists with prisoners related to Boko Haram affairs and the Anglophone crisis, like Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, the secessionist leader.

Of the 131 demonstrators indicted following the demonstrations of January 26, 2019, seven, mostly MRC executives, are in custody at the former BMM. They are engaged artist Valsero, Penda Ekoko, Eric Kingue, Albert Dzongang, Célestin Djamen, Professor Alain Fogue and President Maurice Kamto.

Angry, a surfer is strike on Paul Biya and Cabral Libii


I'll get straight to the point, no politically correct, zero language of wood... or it's wood or boa really tampi.

So here's what happens:

The mode of governance, operation, problem-solving of the rdpc-Biya-state is essentially based on tribalism and the money packets for corruption. There I do not teach you anything, we already know all.

So know that Cabral has received a single mission from the rdpc-Biya-state not to say Fame Ndongo who is the head of the state tribalism in the service of Biya: his mission is to create a tribalism front Bassa-bami, that's all. That is to say, he is free to insult the rdpc or Biya as he wants, provided he succeeds in his mission and he takes his money.

I can say that Cabral has managed 50% of his mission, fortunately that a good part of our bassa brothers have not fallen into Cabral's trap and have judged only the competence of the various candidates and their offers as a program policy. That's what's on the web.

For a long time I noticed that on the web there was curiously a group of people who hated to death that is to say with all their power they hated the MRC and its president, I assure you that it was not not the people of CPDM, they did not go that far in hate. These people are those who have fallen into Cabral's trap. They are the ones I'm going to talk to right now:

This kind of image I could not imagine that there was this country in the country, I swear to you... When we see that it's often in the North and here you are the first to play the compassion, it is now that I see that it is total hypocrisy because you hide the same thing at home to come and play pity in the north. The person who is at best able to solve these problems (we have seen in the political programs in the elections) it is him that you come haihir thoroughly under the instructions of your leader and for the happiness of Biya who finally plunged the country into this situation. It's diabolical here! !

In short, Cameroonian patriots will remain mobilized for Cameroon and not for the MRC, and not for Kamto, but for Cameroon. And today it is indeed President Elect Kamto who represents this Cameroon of which we all wish.

That's why we all say

-No Electoral Hold-up

-No to hold-up of the public fortune by massive diversions CAN and others

-No to hold-up of peace to NoSo

KAMTO, Third President of Cameroon.

Biya you have done your time, you did what you could, go rest peacefully even at Mvogmeka, Kamto has already promised that nothing will happen to you and that you and your family will be safe...

World leaders accused Cameroon of using security and military equipment donated to them to fight civilians

Besides the US, other countries that Cameroon counts on, including Israel, France, Germany, and China have also shown a strong reaction to the allegations in the country.


The United Nations has asked authorities in the Central African Republic (CAR) to take action following alleged torture cases by Russian soldiers or mercenaries in the country. This comes after an investigation over allegations of torturing and abusing Mahamat Nour Mamadou for days.

According to a report that was seen by AFP, the victim, Mahamat Nour Mamadou, told UN investigators that he was held by a group of Russians in the central city of Bambari last month on suspicion of belonging to an armed militia. He said he was severely beaten and had a finger cut off. Vannina Maestracci, a spokeswoman for UN said based on statements and physical evidence, the UN can confirm that the victim has been ill-treated and tortured.

She added that “this mission has informed officially the relevant Central African authorities and shared all supporting documents requesting follow-up action,” The UN does not have authority to arrest individuals in a country where it has peacekeepers and has turned to Bangui to ensure the perpetrators of the serious crime are held responsible. UN says Mamadou was released through the intervention of Internal Security Forces (FSI).

Russia’s influence in CAR has been growing since the UN-backed government there called for help to fight militias rampaging through the country. Moscow has already supplied weapons, military officers, at least 170 military “trainers” and a security adviser to work with president Faustin-Archange Touader. According to reports in Russian and Western media, the military trainers are mercenaries with close ties to Russian mining companies and the numbers deployed could be significantly higher than officially reported.

Last month, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian criticized the presence of Russian mercenaries in CAR from the private military company Wagner. Three Russian journalists who were investigating the Wagner group were ambushed and murdered in CAR last year.

A peace agreement between the government of CAR and 14 armed groups was agreed earlier this month in a bid to bring peace to the unstable country. As of now, it is not clear whether the Russians were part of the private military outfit Wagner, with the UN describing the suspected torturers as “non-UN uniformed individuals of Russian Nationality”

CAR is not the only country that has attracted international attention over government-sanctioned torture. Last week the US reacted to credible allegations that the Cameroon government carried out human rights violation in the country. US is Cameroon’s most allied security partner, with about 300 US troops stationed there to train and assist the Cameroonian military in its fight against extremism in its far northern region. However, following reports on the ongoing crisis with the English-speaking separatists called Ambazonia, and the protesting opposition leader, Cameroon has been accused of using security and military equipment donated by the US to fight civilians. Following the allegations, the US announced that it would withdraw its military support to the country.

Besides the US, other countries that Cameroon counts on, including Israel, France, Germany, and China have also shown a strong reaction to the allegations in the country.

France also reacted to the allegations against the country, calling on the Cameroonian government to respect the rights of the people to freely express their opinions. As seen in a  Q&A daily press briefing, the French Foreign Ministry said “We are concerned at this legal development and are continuing to follow the situation of Mr Kamto and that of approximately 200 of his supporters who are being held in detention. The Cameroonian opposition, of which Mr Kamto is a leading figure, must be able to freely express its opinions, in accordance with the law,”

Kamto was on Wednesday charged with ‘rebellion’ by a military tribunal. Twenty-two members of his Cameroon Renaissance Movement (MRC) are also on trial for the same charges, lawyers said.

Government-sanctioned torture is common in countries with a record of violent opposition groups, activists, or rebellion from popular armed groups and terrorism. Cameroon, which has been criticised of having an authoritarian system, where Paul Biya, the president has been in power since 1982 is an example. CAR and Cameroon have recorded a high rate of violence in the past few years.

It usually takes an intervention from world powers and the UN, US and France to placate extreme approaches made by these governments to fight extremism; like some “fire for fire” approach. These accusations against Russia in the CAR renew concerns for its growing presence in Africa, especially because its presence in CAR was facilitated by the country’s government.

It remains to be seen if the CAR government would take action regarding the torture accusations, but one thing is certain: oppressive governments on the continent have no qualms about hurting their citizens, and usually stop when they are prevailed upon by western powers.

Paul Biya's security: 641 men expected to begin the transition


After entering Sunday the Minkama Training Center near Obala, they received last Wednesday their first outfits for intense individual training.

"The big ones will lose weight. The skinny will die. Does it follow? "Hard for the 2019 contingent of recruits to the Presidential Guard to forget those words. Warnings hammered as soon as they enter the grounds of the Presidential Guard Training Center in Minkama, about two kilometers from Obala in the Central Region. After the stage of the collective race in November 2018, they crossed the doors of this institution last Sunday. On the lists, there were a total of 641 expected to begin the transition from civilian to military.

634 answered this. At a safe distance, parents came to watch at this moment, under the freezing cold of the early morning and the hot sun of the afternoon.Man and woman, all had the skull of all hair at the entrance, as required by the entry rules for training. Reception and orientation, then separation from personal effects. A good fifty brought buckets and machetes. Money too. On site, everything has been prepared for these candidates.Only the piece of identity was mandatory.

Battalion Commander Hongbo Ndong Anicet, commander of the Training Center, personally ensured that nothing was missing at every stage. The hardest thing was when identifying. Although everything had started from the portal. The badly-dressed rookies were called to order, the latecomers were back on the ramps. In the ranks, some misplaced too. Some have confused the centers. Instead of Maroua, one ended up in Obala, while another was expected from Limbe. Inside, the identification process in itself was a training. Forbidden to laugh at chefs' jokes or dragging feet. There, future soldiers were in the making.

The recruits are then passed through the depollution box. "This step involves removing externally all that the candida can have on them. This workshop was set up because during the 2014 recruitment there was a cholera outbreak. They will then integrate the medical circuit where we take certain parameters and perform traditional examinations, "said Colonel Dr. Epanya Endale Fanny, head of the military medical center of the GP. At the last level of identification, the identity of the candidate selected during the selection and the one who came for the training was checked.

In the ranks, a dozen bad apples were accompanied to the exit. The others went through the brief medical examination.Monday and Tuesday, they received vaccines. Before going to Ndjoré, 45 km from Obala, for their basic training all weapons, the future Gpistes received Wednesday their survival equipment (outfit, sleeping bags, buckets, rangers, etc.).

MRCistes are also criticized for the destruction of public property or outrages on the president, in reference to the damage done to the Cameroonian embassies in Paris and Berlin.

Biya Has The Most Luxurious Presidential Car In Africa


Cameroon President, Paul Biya ,has the most luxurious and safest presidential car in Africa . The stretched armored limousine from the German luxury tuner ,Klassen, was first unveiled on May 20, 2018, during the countries national day.


It is based on the Range Rover Autobiography SUV and comes with the highest levels of ballistic protection in level 7 (formerly B6) and level 9 (formerly B7).


The ​tank-like limousine,with number plate PRC, is fitted with stretched rear doors, raised roofs and armored glass-panoramic-roofs – that opens like a convertible car and Kevlar tyres, that keeps it going when shot.

The exclusive interior of the stretched armoured SUV is equipped with luxury partition walls and state-of-the-art technology like an iMac multimedia center with PC/Wi-Fi/CD/DVD, a Bang & Olufsen Sound system and also ambient LED lighting. All relevant functions can be controlled via an iPhone.

Despite the luxuries mentioned above, this millitary grade SUV can withstand any armour piercing incendiary bullets and blasts from DM51 grenade explosions.

No one knows how much the 86 year old President, who has been serving as the President of Cameroon since 6 November 1982, paid for the luxury tank-on-wheels.

But the luxury car definitely cost a fortune to build as Klassen’s customizations doesn’t come cheap. The company revealed last year that it was ready to turn the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV, that starts at ₦118m ($325k), to an even more luxurious armoured limousine, for a cool 755m

Southern Cameroons War: Biya, Atanga Nji behind attack on Kumba Hospital


The Southern Cameroons Interim Government has strongly denounced a deadly attack by a regiment of French Cameroun’s Rapid Intervention Battalion, BIR on the Kumba District Hospital, accusing French Cameroun leader President Biya and his Territorial Administration Minister, Paul Atanga Nji of nurturing the Beti Ewondo soldiers behind the attack.

The Southern Cameroons Homeland Security Department said in a statement that the attack that killed 4 Southern Cameroonians and injured dozens betrayed the true image of the genocide led by the Biya Francophone regime, which encourages French speaking Cameroun army soldiers to continue killing innocent Southern Cameroons civilians.

Acting President Ikome Sako and the Secretary of Communications, Chris Anu have both been quoted as saying that the attack on the Kumba Hospital showed that the French Cameroun political leadership was intimidated by the success of the lockdown in Southern Cameroons. The Southern Cameroons Interim Government also observed that these French Cameroun government crimes will not weaken the Ambazonian nation, but will rather increase the power and motivation of the resistance.

An Ambazonian Commander in the Meme County told Cameroon Concord Newscorrespondent in Kumba that the crime has been masterminded and implemented by BIR soldiers deployed to Kumba the chief city in the Meme County. The Ambazonian Interim Government also immediately appealed to Southern Cameroonians particularly those in the Diaspora to keep the financial donations coming, in order for the Interim Government to support the county-by-county defense efforts.

The United States embassy in Yaounde has asked the Biya regime to probe the deadly hospital arson at the Kumba District hospital on Monday. The Embassy reacted to the attack in a February 12 statement stressing that the government must probe, hold perpetrators accountable and also publicly publish results of the said probe.

“We call on the Cameroonian government to conduct a transparent investigation into this crime, to ensure the courts hold the perpetrators accountable, and to make the Cameroonian people aware of its findings,” the statement read in part. We urge both sides in the Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon to allow unfettered access to humanitarian and healthcare workers, and never to attack hospitals or health centers.”

It is vital to include in this report that General Melingui of the Cameroun army had publicly admitted that forces under his command torched civilian and other protected settlements in the execution of the senseless war. For this admission, he was promptly relieved of his command.  That public admission of responsibility, removed reasonable doubts about the forces torching of civilian and protected settlements as weapons of war targeting civilians and civilian objects.

Short of a similar admission in the Kumba Hospital case, it will take an independent investigation by internationally recognized or certified forensic experts to apportion responsibility for this despicable crime, although going by the prior admission by General Melingui,  the consistent pattern of conduct in which the torching of civilian settlements he admitted ,may provide similar facts evidence to establish criminal responsibility for this and other crimes targeting civilian and other protected settlements.

Cameroon Crisis: US says Biya regime must transparently probe deadly hospital fire


The United States embassy in Cameroon has asked the government to probe a deadly hospital arson that claimed four lives at the Kumba District hospital on Monday.

The Embassy reacted to the attack in a February 12 statement stressing that the government must probe, hold perpetrators accountable and also publicly publish results of the said probe.

“We call on the Cameroonian government to conduct a transparent investigation into this crime, to ensure the courts hold the perpetrators accountable, and to make the Cameroonian people aware of its findings,” the statement read in part. We urge both sides in the Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon to allow unfettered access to humanitarian and healthcare workers, and never to attack hospitals or health centers.”

There is a raging back and forth over who were responsible for the attack. The government through the South West region’s governor has condemned the attack. Whiles separatist elements operating in the area are usually blamed for such attacks on social service outlets, the army has also been widely reported as carrying out attacks on institutions believed to be serving the separatists. The hospital was serving a large pool of patients given that most smaller health outfits had been closed due to threats by separatists.

General Melingui of the Cameroun army had publicly admitted that forces under his command torched civilian and other protected settlements in the execution of the senseless war. For this admission, he was promptly relieved of his command.  That public admission of responsibility, removed reasonable doubts about the forces torching of civilian and protected settlements as weapons of war targeting civilians and civilian objects.

Short of a similar admission in the Kumba Hospital case, it will take an independent investigation by internationally recognized or certified forensic experts to apportion responsibility for this despicable crime, although going by the prior admission by General Melingui,  the consistent pattern of conduct in which the torching of civilian settlements he admitted, may provide similar facts evidence to establish criminal responsibility for this and other crimes targeting civilian and other protected settlements.

Full statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cameroon:

The United States condemns the arson attack on Kumba District Hospital, in Southwest Region.  The fire is reported to have resulted in the deaths of several patients and caused considerable damage during the early morning hours of February 11.

We express our deepest condolences to the victims’ families and our admiration for the courageous medical staff.

We call on the Cameroonian government to conduct a transparent investigation into this crime, to ensure the courts hold the perpetrators accountable, and to make the Cameroonian people aware of its findings.

We urge both sides in the Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon to allow unfettered access to humanitarian and healthcare workers, and never to attack hospitals or health centers.

We appeal to both sides of the Anglophone conflict to forswear further violence and enter into a broad-based dialogue without pre-conditions.
