Kah Walla, President of the Cameroon’s People’s Party, has written an open letter to the Minister of Territorial Administration, Atanga Nji, where she made nonsense of the Minister’s latest appointments within some political parties.
It would be recalled that Minister Atanga Nji had sent out a release appointing Samuel Tita Fon as the new President of the CPP party. This in the bid to stop internal conflicts within the party, part of the release reads.
Reacting to the Minister’s move, Kah Walla said the Atanga Nji’s appointment is null and void as it respects neither the party constitution nor any administrative or legal procedure in Cameroon. To her, TITA FON, appointed by the Minister, has neither the legality nor the legitimacy to speak or act on behalf of the CPP.
Excerpts of her open letter below:
“Mr. Minister, It was to our greatest alarm and surprise that we learned of your interference in our internal party affairs over the radio. As the leadership of the CPP, we wish to inform you of the following:
“There is no legal basis which gives you the right to enter into a political party’s internal functioning and decide upon the officials or legal representatives of the party”
“We have received no official document in writing, nor have we been contacted by telephone or in person by anyone from the Ministry of Territorial Administration regarding any dispute in the CPP”
“In the face of misbehaviour on the part of some of our militants who were not respecting our party regulations and constitution, we have sent the Ministry of Territorial Administration correspondence on the dates of February 14th, 2018 and March 19th, 2018 to remind all parties concerned about our party constitution and regulations”
“Your communication read over the CRTV on July 17, 2018 is null and void as it respects neither our party constitution nor any administrative or legal procedure in Cameroon”
“Therefore, Mr TITA FON, appointed by you, has neither the legality nor the legitimacy to speak or act on behalf of the CPP”
“It is unfortunate that at this time when Cameroon is facing serious reputational risks in the global community for acts of illegality and impunity with regard to its citizens, you as Minister of Territorial Administration would further undermine our democracy by committing acts that are outside the legal and administrative framework of our country”
“We are not fooled by your manoeuvres and neither are the Cameroonian people. Your lowly undertakings dishonour Cameroon and reveal, to those who were still holding any illusions, the true nature of the regime which you serve. This futile action will not demobilize us, let alone prevent us from acting in accordance with our objectives”
“The CPP, led by Edith Kahbang Walla, remains firm in its strategy to achieve a democratic, political transition which begins with the departure of this regime that plunges us with every passing day, further into chaos, misery and tears.
