Cameroonians protest in Germany as Constitutional Council set to proclaim Biya winner

Some  Cameroonians have staged a protest on the streets of Germany to express their dissatisfaction at the Constitutional Council rulings that dismissed all petitions filed in by opposition candidates with regards to the October 7 Presidential polls.

After dismissing all petitions filed by the opposition, the Constitutional Council is all set to proclaim Paul Biya on Monday, winner of the October 7 polls handing him the chance to extend his thirty-six-year stay in power with another even-year mandate.

This has not sat down well with some Cameroonians in the diaspora who have launched a series of protests against the Council.

The protests in Germany follows that staged by some Cameroonians in the United States of America on Friday to call for the Constitutional Council to cancel the eleection.

Journalducameroun.com reported on Thursday that security has been beefed at major junctions of the capital Yaounde ahead of the proclamation of results on Monday October 22.

It is the same situation in major cities in the country as security officials guard against any post election violence in the country.
