Kamto demands public inquiry into fake TI observers

Opposition candidate Maurice Kamto of the CRM party, on Wednesday demanded public inquiry some six persons who falsely posed as representatives of Transparency International.

Speaking to the press, Kamto’s spokesperson, Olivier Bibou Nissack  said the public needs to know who brought them in. He equally accused state media CRTV, for condoning with fraud. “false” observers had been seeking to “condone fraud”.

The state-run CRTV television station showed footage from a press conference with six international election observers whom it identified as belonging to Transparency International (TI).

But the NGO denied any affiliation with the people seen in the footage, describing the television report as “false and untrue”.

He demanded a public inquiry and pledged to file a complaint against the TV channel.

On Monday, Kamto declared himself winner in Sunday’s election but offered no proof for his claim, which came as the official results were still being compiled.

By law, each polling station must submit its results for verification to the Elecam electoral commission and then to the Constitutional Court which is responsible for announcing the final tally within 15 days of the vote.

Since Kamto’s announcement, several calls from different stakeholders have ensued telling Cameroonians to remain peaceful and not fall into Kamto’s games.

The CRM Presidential candidate will be holding a press conference at Yondo Black’s residence.
According to information, Akere Muna might be attending as well as supporters and sympathizers.

The press conference will be coming at a time when there are hints of a move by Sawa Chiefs to manipulate youths into demonstrations as part of another anti-KAMTO manœuvre hatched by the rogue regime.
