How Paul Biya 'Humiliated' Fame Ndongo, Mebe Ngo'o At The Palace Of Unity

The Fame Ndongo offensive, Mebe Ngo'o, Doret Ndongo and company last Saturday in front of the gates of the Unity Palace arouses controversy.

 The Cameroon Radio Television (Crtv) reporter is formal: "from the memory of a citizen, it has been a long time since such a demonstration of force had been lived here. " The journalist commented on the presence, on October 21 at the entrance of the Unity Palace, of activists of the Democratic Rally of the Cameroonian People (Rdpc, Editor's note), parties of the "Deep South", the region of origin of the head of the the State.

The report informs that these militants of the presidential party are led by "their elite, in unity of heart and fight". Camera images provide sufficient information on the elite leading this deployment to the doors of the palace: Jacques Fame Ndongo (head), Minister of Higher Education; Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo'o, Minister of Transport, Jules Doret Ndongo, Minister Delegate to the Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization in charge of Decentralized Territorial Communities; or the Deputy Rdpc of Dja-et-Lobo (Southern region) Marie Thérèse Nnama wife Essame. And the Crtv reporter makes this comment: "[the elites] have erected a real seat belt to protect the Republic and the one who embodies it ...".

This deployment of ministers and other senior officials Bulu, the socio-ethnic area from which President Paul Biya comes, is all the more curious because at this level of the presidential itinerary, we usually find grassroots activists from Mfoundi Rdpc. Another curiosity: this 21st of October marked the first anniversary of the Eseka railway catastrophe and the Minister of Transport, actor of this event a year ago, was rather expected on the scene of commemoration of this sad event.

For many commentators, the episode of October 21 at the Palace of Unity testifies that the "brothers" of the Head of State are now presented as the "last rampart". "This is yet another attempt to appropriate the person of the President of the Republic," said a teacher in political science at the University of Yaounde II-Soa. No doubt a bad signal by these times of promotion
of the living-together.

This positioning of the southern elite has already manifested itself at the beginning of 2016 when in a "motion of support", the dignitaries of the regime from the South - under the leadership of Martin Belinga Eboutou, Director of the Civil Cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic - called on President Paul Biya to run for president in 2018. Just like in early 2011, in the wake of the last agropastoral show held in Ebolowa, all the traditional leaders of the region decided to raise President Paul Biya under "Nnom Ngui", the great patriarch of all the patriarchs of the South.
Moreover, even if the head of state has often refused to be identified as the president of some of the Cameroonians, the fact remains that analysts are indignant at an inequality, supposed or real, in the distribution of the "national cake". A return of elevator which is translated by a "unsprestigativity" of his "brothers" in the high administration.

This is demonstrated for example in one of the special editions (15/06/2015) of the newspaper "L'Oeil du Sahel", devoted to the "sharing of the national cake", which reveals a dominance of South state apparatus. The report had already been made in July of the same year in a report of the US State Department, which denounced a "clan power".

It read: "The 286 ethnic groups of Cameroon are not proportionally represented in the administration and other instances of the country. The members of the Beti / Bulu group in the South-region of Paul Biya's origin occupy the key positions and are disproportionately represented in the government, the public enterprises [and] the Rdpc."
