Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
News reaching us from Cameroon this afternoon claims that Paul Biya, the Chairman of CPDM and president of the Republic of Cameroon since 6 November 1982 has declared his bid for presidency in the forthcoming October 2011 elections.
Paul Biya will stand as candidate for CPDM (Cameroon Peoples’ Democratic Party-which should be changed to Cameroon Peoples’ Dictatorship and prison).
Other candidates who have declared their candidacy include;
Kah Walla of Cameroon People’s Party (CPP)
Ayah Paul Abine of the People’s Action Party (PAP)
Bernard Muna of the Alliance for Progressive Forces (APF).
Have a look at their websites, it is not too late to make a decision. We can save our beloved fatherland from dictatorship.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Apparently this news has completed demoralised most Cameroonians who have now decided not to register. Afterall given past elections, we know that fraud will be the order of the day and regardless Biya will still win. However what I do not understand is why we are ready to give up so easily? So what if he stands, let’s still go to the polls and vote him out and if he rigs the elections, which I am certain he will, at least we know we played our parts. Still this is so disgraceful. God help us all!
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?
