Cameroon: Paul Biya takes swipe at Maurice Kamto over election boycott

The Head of State Paul Biya has taken a swipe at his rival Maurice Kamto for calling on Cameroonians to boycott Sunday’s Legislative and Municipal elections.

After casting his vote at the Government Bilingual Primary School in Bastos, Paul Biya took a thinly veiled barb at Kamto after for calling on Cameroonians to boycott the vote.

“I have accomplished my civic duty and I am happy about it. I seize this opportunity to call on all my compatriots to do same, contrary to calls for boycott by some small political parties,” Paul Biya said.

Maurice Kamto whose CRM party boycotted Sunday’s polls has been abroad for over a month meeting with some Cameroonians in the diaspora to explain his reasons for the boycott.

He has stressed no credible election can take place in Cameroon in the present security context as well as the present electoral code.
