  1. Cabral Libii a reuni plus d’un million de jeunes à Douala ce dimanche. Malgrés son jeune age et son coté un peu naif, il donne de l’espoir à la jeunesse et aussi à la diaspora.
    Dans le meilleur des mondes, je voterais Cabral.
    Kamto est trop vieux, il s’endore à son propre metting..
    Joshua, trop mou et obese.
    Biya, un cadavre..
    En tout cas, ce cirque est interressant surtout lorsqu’on sait que Paris a le dernier mot.
    Le ndem de ca!

  2. What? laughable is the a presidency in that sh*t hole? The man in diapers should stay there and finish what he started diba na diba

  3. “La force d’esperience” translated as “The force of experience” just to tell you biya is surrounded with mediocre people.I also heard niat has been flown to europe.Who uses the services of those students trained in CUSS. Tell Biya to change the slogan to “the strength of Experience” atleast

  4. Biya will remain president until his death. He will win the elections with above 70% already determined by the CPDM non Independent ELECAM.
    Cameroon is a monarchy with hereditary presidents choosen by France. 2 Presidents in 60yrs to be exact.
    The campaign season is a temporary distraction to pacify the not so sophisticated masses into believing they actually chose a president.
    The masses in Anglophone Cameroon are subjected to a war declared by the Biya government, they know that the election is just a sham to legitimize their massacre by the government.
    English in Courtrooms and classrooms in Anglophone Cameroon was the request in 2016 in a constitutionally bilingual country, war is the solution with “ the force of Experience”
    Who is fooling who?

  5. A non issue, good enough to those who don`t see beyond their shadows.

  6. I think we have seen this movie before…..Let them go and campaign in Ambazonia……abui ngan….

  7. Tooooi much noise terrorist

  8. The only way u removed Mr Paul corrupt Biya power drunk from the presidency, will be a popular revolution when his ELECAM prepare results is announced declaring him the winner by %72 that means people will sacrifice blood like Ambazonia when the brutal rapist military is unleashed to kill innocent civilians
