Chief Ephraim Inoni, one of the most commanding French Cameroun surrogate in Southern Cameroons and a Biya acolyte is now struggling to finish sentences, is not even aware that he is in Kondengui prison and even forgets his wife’s name. The so-called Patriarch of Bakingili is reportedly a much-diminished ruling CPDM figure created by the progressive effects of dementia and an undisclosed form of cancer.
Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that the former prime minister first started to show signs of mental deterioration two years ago, when he confused facts during a private conversation with a journalist from the USA. During the said interview he also struggled with his words and his memory.
The man who was top in those days is now seeing his memory failing badly, and his ability to understand and interact with other CPDM barons in the Kondengui prison is fading.
We understand some South West Chiefs have written a memo to President Biya via Prime Minister Dion Ngute pleading with the French Cameroun dictator to allow Mr. Inoni to go abroad for treatment. Mola Inoni can no longer lead conversations with other inmates in detention, can hardly remember the beginning of a sentence by the time he gets to the end and often forgets the death of his first wife.
