President Paul Biya failed his supporters and party members by not arriving in Cameroon yesterday July 25 as earlier announced
When supporters and party members of the ruling party CPDM gathered at the Nsimalen airport, they were singing and dancing as they awaited the arrival of the presidential couple
Videos circulating online showed supporters declaring they were “ready to die for the president”
But the presidential couple did not show up. Later on, a press release from the CPDM head of central committee said the president’s trip had been postponed.
President Paul Biya and wife left Yaounde on Sunday July 11 for a private stay in Switzerland. It was the first time the president was leaving the country since two years.
Their stay at the Intercontinental hotel in Geneva witnessed a disturbing protest from members of the Brigade Anti-Sardinard
Critics have also frowned at the mobilisation of people and large crowds to welcome Biya.
It is important to note that the government banned opposition party MRC’s peaceful protest saying a large crowd could foster the spread of covid-19
Biya’s new date for arrival in Cameroon is yet to be announced.
