Biya fished out from “hiding”, Given Ultimatum to Return home

The Network of Democratic Organizations of the Cameroonian Diaspora commonly known in its French acronym as the CODE is not pleased with President Paul Biya’s continuous stay abroad after his official trip to Italy and the Vatican.

In a statement, “Alert 104” published on Tuesday April 4, 2017, the group is preparing to stage a showdown at the Intercontinental Hotel in Geneva, Switzerland were the Cameroonian  leader lives an extravagant lifestyle, lavishing tax payers effort with impunity.


The President of the CODE, Brice Nintcheu in the document  confirms that the 84 year old dictator used the state visit to Italy as a pretext to go on his usual unannounced stay abroad leaving pressing problems at home. The movement believes that Biya who is sweating under the weight of domestic preoccupations such as the  Anglophone crisis, the embarrassment of the Indomitable Lions and the non payment of Secondary school teachers in the francophone zone appears to be fleeing from his responsibilities.

The CODE therefore considers Biya’s stay abroad “…not only untimely and unnecessary but also cost effective” and has given him 7days to return and take care of issues he has been mandated by the people to do for 7years. The Management of the Intercontinental Hotel where he resides has also been petitioned to send him and his delegation away or be ready face the “music”  for complicity in ruining a rich country like Cameroon.

This is not the first time the CODE is calling Biya to order over his long stay abroad. In October 2016, Emmanuel Kemta the body’s Operation Manager  had staged a dramatic scene, hurling insults on the Head of state for abandoning his duties, a move which embarrassed hundreds of clients at the hotel.
