Cameroonian President Paul Biya is marking on Monday (Nov. 06) his 41 year-rule over the central African nation.
YAOUNDE, CAMEROON: Last year, thousands gathered in the capital, Yaoundé, for the occasion, although the president did not attend. Paul Biya, a former Prime Minister, assumed leadership of Cameroon on November 6, 1982, following the resignation of the country’s first president, Ahmadou Ahidjo
Within the ruling Democratic Rally of the Cameroonian People (RDPC), numerous voices have already called for President Biya to run in the 2025 presidential election, potentially securing an eighth, 7-year term. Nevertheless, critics of his administration donned black attire on Sunday, citing concerns over issues such as corruption, poor governance, and an ongoing struggle for succession.
