President Biya who left La Republique du Cameroun on the 14th of September, has still not returned, although some anonymous sources announced his imminent arrival this week. The 85 year old French Cameroun dictator travelled to the United States to attend the 72nd General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) on September 14.
Paul Biya is reportedly running the country via Face Book and other social media outlets. The subject of his absence has for several days prompted many to question key actors of his ruling CPDM party and government which for lack of answers, leaves room for some suspicions about the “prolonged” absence of the head of state.
Cameroon Concord News understands President Paul Biya is in a hotel in Switzerland, where he usually spends a “deserved” leave after months of intense activity in the country. Some Biya acolytes have also pointed out that the commander-in-chief took refuge in his second homeland, Switzerland, and is in the process of fine-tuning redeployment strategies with a view to finding effective and lasting solutions to the various problems undermining the Cameroonian nation. However, what we do know is that the French Cameroun chief executive is battling all types of age-related issues and gradually running out of time.
Meanwhile, the Southern Cameroons crisis is far from being over, with the regime intensifying electricity and internet cuts in the Anglophone regions. Hospitals can longer cope with the thousands injured by French Cameroun soldiers and corruption has paralyzed the good functioning of the society as the population continues to languish under the weight of misery.
The leadership of the Movement for the Rebirth of Cameroon (MRC) recently spoke of a vacancy in power and called on the Supreme Court for a statutory finding. But the President of the Republic has still not returned and no press release from his civil cabinet says where Paul Biya is, or when he intends to return to the fold.
