2018 Presidential election: Kamto sets campaign dates for Anglophone regions

Campaigns for the Presidential election officially kick off nationwide on Saturday September 22 amidst the uncertainty in the North West and South West regions of the country.

The continuous clashes between security forces and separatist fighters has thrown doubts over credibility of the polls in that part of the country.

Leaders of political parties have been seen criss-crossing other regions in their pre-campaign tours but have hardly gone through the Anglophone regions due to the prevailing security situation.

However, the leader of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement, Maurice Kamto will be visiting both regions on October 2 and 5 as part of his camapign tour, the party has officially revealed.

Maurice Kamto will visit Bamenda on October 2 and Buea on Bamenda

This comes barely days after Kamto apologised to the Anglophone community for not making regular visits to the area due to the security situation but had promised his first trip will be to the North West and South West Regions if he is elected President on October 7.

Kamto will kick off his campaign on Saturday in Douala before heading the next day to Edea and the rest of the Sanaga Maritime Division.
