Cameroon – Paul Biya: President boycotts the “minute of silence” for the Eseka victims, because he could not stand up to 1 minute

Written by Deckson N.

The national television channel broadcast live in the early afternoon of Sunday, October 30, 2016, another scene that will further dent the image of the president.

After the incredible episode of the presidential vehicle crash occurred at the 20th May boulevard in Yaounde during the national day celebrated on May 20, the national television broadcast live in the early afternoon of Sunday October 30, 2016, another scene that will further dent the image of the president. Paul Biya, who arrived around 3:30 PM in the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium in Yaounde to chair the final of the Cup of Cameroon between Bamboutos FC of Mbouda and Apejes of Mfou, had already taken place in the rostrum when the MC of the protocol of this final match, asked all the supporters to stand for a minute of silence in memory of victims of the train disaster of Friday, October 21, 2016 at Eseka. Paul Biya rose like everyone. But after 40 seconds, the President sat down again.

Unable to go after 30 seconds, Paul Biya first tried to sit. But he abandoned this idea when he observed around him, the President of the Senate, President of the National Assembly and others around him were still immersed in the minute of silence, eyes closed. Finally, Paul Biya abandoned the ordeal. He slumped in his seat when his entourage was still standing.

Absent at Eseka at the scene of the tragedy and during the organized worship on October 24 in memory of the victims, Paul Biya has failed on Sunday, an opportunity to redeem himself in the eyes of his countrymen who condemn the attitude of their President towards the various tragedies that have marred Cameroon.
