Cameroon – Gregoire Mba Mba: Senator drags the chief and notables of his village to court for witchcraft

Written by Deckson N.

He accuses them of witchcraft and death threats.

The information is on everyone’s tongue at Bissiang, a small village 15 kilometers from Kribi, headquarter of the Ocean division in the Southern Region. And also because the chief and his notables were arrested in the early hours of the morning of October 18, 2016 by gendarmes , informs La Nouvelle Expression (LNE) published on 19 October.

The motives of this arrest are astonishing to say the least. LNE states that “the arrest followed a complaint filed by Senator Gregoire Mba Mba who accuses them of practicing witchcraft and death threats. The complaint addressed to Madam the Prosecutor of the Republic and delivered to the diligence of the gendarmeri, is accompanied with photos showing a calabash of a reddish liquid that the Senator calls blood found at the entrance to his home.

The newspaper said to have contacted the CPDM Senator via phone. The latter refused to explain, saying that the matter is pending in court. Our colleague noted, however, that in the headlines of the 12:00 PM news of the Kribi Fm radio which Mba Mba is the promoter, the presenter said: “Attack against Senator by witchcraft.”

On the other hand, the version is different. “We held a meeting last Saturday in the village with two items on the agenda: the issue of the registration of our land and the contract between our village with the HEVECAM company. The police stopped us at 5:00 am this morning, without telling us the reason, “said His Majesty Jeannot Mebale, 3rd degree Chief of  Bissiang.

The real problem is that people have dismissed the senator from his “self-proclaimed” title of representing their village in the contract binding them to HEVECAM and prepared to march towards the D.O’s office of Kribi, to denounce the arrest of their registrations land initiated by the Senator says LNE.

A source at the D.O’s office rather talk about another matter. “After the wave of arrests on management compensation, the Minister of land tenure signed an order prohibiting the registration of land across the Ocean division. So it is not a case of Mr. Mba Mba … ” he said..
