The patriarch of Meme Division in the South West Region, has for over four months, been absent in public life.
From information gleaned, the Nfon has been out of the country for medical reasons, due to a deteriorating health problem.
But earlier this week, the senior Statesman staged a spectacular come back into the country, ahead of the official opening of the ordinary session of the National Assembly devoted to the examination of the 2018 State budget.
His returned to the country threw CPDM militants in Meme into pandemonium. The militants were already in splinters on whether to accord the nonagenarian a homecoming after recovering from a health problem or not.
While one of the factions supported the organisation of the homecoming, the other faction rubbished the idea.
Those in favour of the homecoming slated it for Tuesday, November 14. But later rescheduled for Saturday, November 18, due to what they termed senatorial engagement for the Paramount ruler.
Announcements read through radio stations had indicated that militants of the CPDM and Quarter Heads were going to offer the Nfon a hilarious welcome. Organisers of the event claim it will afford the Senator an opportunity to commune with the population and his subjects who have missed the presence of their leader.
However, acrimonious meetings and secret phone calls have since gone into play to stop the occasion. A cold war reportedly developed among party barons over who ordered the militants to receive the Nfon.
Some of Nfon Mukete’s political adversaries are promising to use their contacts in Yaounde to deal with anyone who signs an announcement urging militants to receive the Nfon.
But the pro-Mukete are resolute to organise a grandiose event in honour of the Senator on November 18.
