Cameroon: Biya's Geneva and trips amount at  90 billion FCFA to the Cameroonian taxpayer so far

The President of the Republic of Cameroon has been aptly described as the absentee Land Lord. This is because he spends a greater chunk of his days out of Cameroon and in Switzerland in particular or sometimes in France. However his excessive bills spent in the Continental Hotel have drawn international condemnation and a lot of people can't understand how a relatively poor Country like Cameroon can allow such extravagant expenditure of the President of the Country?

Spending a walloping some of 65 million dollars( 32.5 billion Francs CFA) This walloping sum does not include what is kept monthly in the black account that carters for the payment of air tickets,chartering of planes and advertisements. This picture is negatively presented by an International Association of investigative Journalist, abbreviated using a French acronym OCCRP.


It's assumed that 855000$ was wasted to foot the bills of 50 passengers in a round ticket from Yaoundé to Geneva. Other expenses that were incurred by Paul Biya and his ballooned entourage of fifty persons include 117million Dollars. This body of investigative Journalist tagged in English as " Organized Crime and Corruption reporting project" has revealed how Paul Biya and his wife Chantal Biya waste state resources in private trips abroad, excluding the official trips.

In 2009 Paul Biya passed almost the whole year out of the Country in the Swiss Continental Hotel, often occupying the last four floors at the expense of the state of Cameroon that can't tar her roads, build bridges, state of the art hospitals as well as make life affordable as well as comfortable to the citizens. Whenever he is out or is coming back nothing even bothers him.

The train Accident that saw the death of 79 persons in Eseka including pastors and other Clergy or the ugly confrontation of the state Police, Gendarmes as well as Soldiers on the 22 of September and 1st of October 2017,reveals an unrealistic President completely cut off from the reality on the ground or an Elitist President.
