Biya decrees Friday the 16th of October a day of National Mourning

President Biya, 82, has decreed Friday, October the 16th, 2015 a day of national mourning. The Head of State stipulated that the nation should pay homage to the Cameroonians who died in Saudi Arabia on September 24, 2015 in the Hajj stampede. Sermons will be held throughout the national territory by Imams and Christians communities as well tomorrow Friday.

The Paul Biya decision has come at a time when the Muslim community is putting pressure on the regime to make public the death toll from the MECCA disaster. Saudi authorities released today the final list of all those who lost their lives in the Hajj 2015. The Saudi Hajj Commission placed the tally at 1,633. CPDM officials have been flirting with figures with the recent one putting Cameroonian death toll at 76 with 30 still missing.
