Press Release on the “first audit report of the audit bench on the use of the special National Solidarity Fund for the fight against the coronavirus”

In a document that has recently appeared in the public arena, the Audit Bench of the Supreme Court presents a summary of what is supposed to be its general audit report “on the use of resources of the national solidarity trust fund for the fight against the coronavirus”. This document is questionable in many respects. Its legal status is far from being established. Not only is it not precisely dated (there is a reference to March 2021), but it is neither signed nor clear as to who commissioned it...

Special message from President Maurice KAMTO to the Defence and Security Forces on the occasion of the 20th may 2021 National Day

Soldiers, Non-Commissioned Officers, Officers, General Officers,
Ladies and Gentlemen of the civilian personnel of the Defence Forces,
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Security Forces,

The 20th of May is the celebration of the Unity of the Nation. What is a Nation? A Nation is a population united by history whose will to live and build a common destiny together makes it a people; it is also a territory defined by borders; it is equally a flag and a rallying song called the national anthem. Beyond governments, communities and political organisations, there is a professional body that is both the crucible and the cement of the Nation: it is the National Army and more broadly the Defence and Security Forces. It is the Army, admittedly under the intangible authority of the civil power, which protects the people with whom it is at one with; it is the Army which defends the borders of the Nation and therefore the integrity of the territory; it is the Army which sheds its blood for the flag while singing the national anthem, this great song of rallying and devotion. That is why I felt it was important to address a special message to the Cameroonian army, our army, and more generally to the Defence and security forces, on this 49th edition of the National Unity Day, which is taking place in a special context...

President Maurice KAMTO End of year message to the nation December 31, 2020

Fellow Cameroonians, My dear compatriots,

We have now reached the end of 2020. Like the previous years, 2020 has been another trying year for Cameroon. In our country, the years go by and look alike, marked as they continue to be by the advanced downgrading of a country yet so rich and bearer of a unique flame whose imminent incandescence will mark the rebirth of Africa. On the path to the upcoming awakening of the Cameroonian people, the cathartic events of the year 2020 are broken down into four main points...

CRM Press release on political corruption in Cameroon

Recurring reports point to the intensification of the Yaoundé regime's efforts, it believes, to try once again to weaken and even destroy the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (CRM). Thus, to the multitude of repressive and discriminatory measures of an administrative, political and judicial nature instituted against the CRM since its creation. Mr. Biya and his regime have now resorted to their preferred means: large-scale corruption...

President Maurice KAMTO: statement on the Regional Elections of 6 December 2020

The Cameroon Renaissance Movement (CRM), in due time, repeatedly informed national and international public opinion that it would not take part in the legislative and municipal elections this year, in the absence of a consensual reform of the electoral system and the political resolution of the Anglophone crisis, starting with the end of the fratricidal war which is ravaging the North-West and South-West regions of the country...

Official statement from the President-elect of Cameroon, Maurice KAMTO, on the attempt to decapitate the MRC by the dictatorial regime in place in Yaounde

Yesterday barrister Mispa AWASUM, National President of the Women wing of the CRM party, was notified of a 15-days custody at the regional department of the Judicial Police (DRPJ), after a group of women from the party that she was leading had tried to visit the CRM National President, who has been under an illegal house arrest for two months, to ask for his release...

A call for a determined peaceful resistance of the Cameroonian people against the electoral sham in preparation and for the outright resignation of Mr Paul BIYA in case such electoral sham takes place

My dear compatriots,

Cameroonians of good faith, regardless of political sides or any other sensitivities, serious foreign observers, bilateral and multilateral partners truly concerned about the future of the Cameroonian people and not the survival of an illegal and illegitimate regime can see that our country has not been governed for a long time now. The Cameroon ship is without a captain and sails with the waves...
