After the violent repression of the opposition press conference recently in Yaounde, four major political parties, the Cameroon People's Party (CPP) of Edith Kah Walla, the Movement for the Revival of Cameroon (RCM) Maurice Kamto, the Universe Party of Hon. Nkou Mvondo and the UPC have called for a general protest for the 4th to 9th of April to deny the Biya regime any amendment to the Constitution of Cameroon which can lead to the organization of early presidential.
Last Tuesday, the coalition of four political parties planning to launch the operation saw their planned press conference banned by the regime in Yaounde. Twenty people were arrested by police and then released later that evening after very serious interrogation by the nation’s tribal secret service.
The present Cameroon opposition parties say any constitutional amendment could lead to the organization of an early presidential election and by extrapolation, the re-election of the 83 years old dictator who has been in power for 34 years. Biya’s current term ends in 2018.
