Let this go forth to all and sundry, that if President Biya tries an amendment of Law n°96/06 of 18 January 1996(Cameroon Constitution) to extend his mandate after 2011,the rippling effects of such a move will resonate throughout Cameroon's history.That will be depriving the present generation of Cameroonians and the next, their fundamental and inalienable right to a peaceful Cameroon.We the youths shall not"resign ourselves to our fate".We shall be ready to take to the streets and why not to invoke the gods of revolution if need be.Time's up,Biya has outlived his usefulness.Let him bow out just like his political mentor in the Metropole,Jacques Chirac.

Let Cameroonians see what this devilish Paul Biya is planing. It may seem like a joke but this is certainly real. I think this article is an eye opener to someone like me who could not see the real plans behind the CPDM tricks. We the youths should certainly be prepared to fight to death if Paul Biya and these CPDM bandits try to make him run for re-election again.

Ottou

My country people.
You should not be afraid of the devilish intentions of Paul Biya. I am not a prophet of doom but Paul Biya is likely to die before the next presidential elections.

Ma Mary

Guys guys. Do you not understand the misery of a once, has been or former African dictator. Doddering and drooling and powerless in exile in some old mansion. When you are out of power and in exile, the tax people descend on you, charging you for past taxes s and interest that you did not pay as president. They will suck you out, and when you are a dry husk, they will make you so miserable that you would escape back home or to somewhere in Africa. Those old houses are expensive to maintain, so you will be up to your eyes in bills, and you can no longer defer or ask your govt to pay. NAH

It is so much easier to be life president than to take such misuse. Please understand, Biya NEEDS to be life president of la republique.

Edmond Nsheuko

Ma Mary,
You are right! Exile is hardly an option to most African dictators. Once they loose their position, most of their so called friends will turn their back on them. The devil will be let loose on them. Human right organizations, international tribunals will start chasing them as well as their fellow countrymen. Everybody will want a piece of them and Life will become a nightmare.
It is always wise to stick to power until they die or they hear bullets whistling past their ears. Stepping down is not always easy. Ahidjo, Sassou Nguesso of congo and several others learned it the hard. Sassou came back, Ahidjo tried but failed. Biya is too smart to let that happen. It is obvious that they will not allow him stay in peace in Cameroon. Where else will he go ?
Just take a look at the kind of relationship Biya has with other African presidents. Biya never helps, he never supports, he never visits, and he doesn’t care. Which one of them do you think will be willing to have him around? Very few I suppose. He has no friends, he has nowhere to go. Not that I care the least, I just want to show how bad he needs to stay in power.

Hi Ottou,

I will be glad if Paul Biya were to be death before his run for President again as this article indicates. But what if he doesn’t? You may also want to think about who survives Biya. Cameroon without the Biya regime doesn’t necessarily correlate to a better Cameroon unless we can ensure the departure its remnants. Therefore I personally do not think we should remain quiet hoping that Paul dies before 2011. May be our continuous criticism may help precipitate his death and that is why we must continue talking and hope that many people come up with educative insights like the bove article and many others.
