Appointment and dismissal of DOs in Cameroon: Paul Biya the “most perfect Cameroonian”

The president of La Republique signed a series of decrees appointing and dismissing local administrators on Monday.

The message,that was read on the lone state broadcaster CRTV, brought tears and joy to several families.

And what was probably disturbing about it is the fact that most of those who were sent on retirement or fired are as young as the president’s grand children. They certainly got to those positions when Paul Biya had been in power for several years.

Paul Biya who took over from Ahidjo in 1982 is hoping to make miracles by 2035 and make his country an “emerging nation”.

For that reason, he dismisses and retires those who are either too “old”, too weak to think clearly or “unproductive”.



On his part, he is strong, young enough to take the nation to emergence by 2035. Eighty-four years is not a problem.

There is every indication that our “father” does not want to admit that age is also weighing on him. During celebrations marking  the National Day in Yaounde at the 20th May Boulevard, there were signs of fatigue on his face.

What is he telling Cameroonians? That he is more intelligent; smarter; stronger and more Cameroonian than everyone else?

A single regime yet several prime ministers have come and gone. More than three decades of “change’. That’s strange.

In fact, if the regime must hold tight to the string of powers, let there be no retirement or dismissal.
