Acts of disapproval by some Cameroonians in the diaspora of president Paul Biya’s rule, have been reacted to in different ways with the Statesman’s close collaborators firmly condemning such behaviour, while assuring him of their unflinching support.
The 88-year old president had left the country for Switzerland with his wife Chantal Biya, five days ago for a private stay. Being aware of the trip, some disgruntled Cameroonians in Geneva took it as an opportunity to organize protests meant to humiliate the Head of State.
His close collaborators back in the country are doing everything possible to prove how uncivil the demonstrators are “it is unacceptable that in the name of democracy, some individuals easily identifiable, should make calls disrespecting the integrity of a Head of State and to organize such actions” Senate President, Marcel Niat Njifenji decried.
The calls of the enraged Cameroonians, have also been tagged as filled with hate speech, tribalistic and unpatriotic remarks “the National Assembly condemns this mental alienation and affirms that Cameroon’s problems are solved within the country and by Cameroonians” the Speaker of the National Assembly said in a communique on Friday, July 17.
Cavaye Yegue Djibril made his point, strongly counteracting the belief he thinks most of the demonstrating Cameroonians have, which is that international opinion counts more in the solution of Cameroon’s problems.
As it has been observed, a good number of state authorities have each been making public statements to denounce what they call disrespect of Cameroon’s public institutions, and also assuring Paul Biya of their unwavering loyalty.
