Rumors: A possible military coup d’etat in Cameroon!
This is not yet verified. There are speculations going-on, but it is really in darkness. There are plenty of Nigerians who has written on Facebook about the Coup d’etat going on in Yaounde. However, this is not yet verified. There are no decree, no official statement and no broadcast saying so.
Therefore, there is hard to take this in, as the hectic elections, the insecurity in the anglophone regions and the ghost President, who was visiting his Republic again for the need of doing so. We don’t know if the military or any of the armed forces has done the Coup d’etat today.
There is only the likes of sources like Afrivelli: “The military has seized power in Cameroon through a coup d’etat. Paul Biya, the incumbent President has been in power since 1982” (Afrivelli, 11.10.2018).
That is why there is little news or reports. There are nothing substantial yet. We don’t know if there is internet black-out and also closed the telephone lines. Because that is something this government does to public, when they want to do something vicious to their own population. Who knows if that is happening now.
So, as per now, we do not know. But this will followed, as the uncertainty of the recent elections, the lack of progress and the lack transparency is steady issue. As the President of 36 years Paul Biya have kept that all to himself. Peace.
