The ruling Cameroon Peoples Democratic Movement has celebrated 32 years in power in a ceremony described as outrageous domination of the politics of the country. The Biya crime syndicate has molded the political environment in the country to its favor. The party has successfully reformed the laws of the country and eliminated all attempts to challenge its ascendancy.
The CPDM is 32 years old, and those holding to power are at least twice as old. They have always advocated consolidation of power. However, the National Chairman is extremely lacking in leadership finesse. The party is run by a generation of men and women who had free education, had scholarships at universities, were recruited into the public service as soon as they returned to Cameroon and given early positions of power before they inherited the supreme power.
To be sure, it is a generation that does not know how to pay water or electricity bills and has never rented a house. To be accurate, it is a generation that never paid neither the wages of their own drivers, nor cooks including its private security guards.
The leadership only knows how to confiscate power. The Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures (SNH) is their piggy bank and finances criminal activities of the regime such as the purchase of the Albatross plane. Marcel Niat Njifenji and Cavaye Yeguie Djibril will both remain in the perch of the Senate and the National Assembly and have no interest in the Anglophone crisis. To Biya and his gang, Anglophones are not part of the deal.
