The constitutional Council will be seating today October 18th for the third day in a row as Joshua Osih and his legal team will mount the rostrum, providing evidences as to why they want the all powerful constitutional council  to annul the October 7th polls across the nation.

But while many will be following yet again the now dramatize events in Yaounde which has attracted unprecedented number of audience as momentum builds in the streets and homes in all 10 regions of the country, the climax of it all will be in the later part of the day beginning 6PM.

It is the time president Clement Atangana had picked for the final showdown between team Kamto on one hand and CPDM, government and ELECAM on the other hand.

While the council quickly thrown away all petitions submitted on day one which was October 16th 2018, council members will surely find it difficult to push as mounting and indisputable evidences presented on day two by team Kamto, detailing massive electoral fraud as they seek for  results be be partially canceled across the country.

CPDM roll out its best political brains and legal team as they struggle unconvincingly, making a mockery of themselves in-front of the wold in their lame attempt to counter claims from team Kamto as the clock gradually ticks to the historic decision of the council while the population prepares its own verdict on a case they have been following so passionately.

“Justice must not just be done, but must be seen to be done” said barister Balla in yesterdays hearing as he reminded the judges that the people are watching.

Yesterday’s late night drama where one of the chief justices Esombe shocked his President and brandish copies of “Proces-verbal or PV” which were initially denied  when ask by kamto’s legal team.

He naivety says the election documents prove Biya won in three localities contested by kamto and to him the documents were signed by kamto’s Representative.

The move backfired as kamto lawyers defiantly fireback, requesting copies which turn out that the PV were fake and forged as all pages were not signed according to the rules, putting to bear the the intentions of a court which is just few months old in a supposed democracy where the rule of law is supreme

The president of the court Clement Atangana later moved forward deliberations to Thursday October 18th 2018 as the world watches in shock and disbelieve the true Cameroon politics, leaving many to ask the questions “where are the 32PVs” demanded by kamto lawyers which the court refused them accessthe other day.

Many have been questioning the silence of their leader with remorse even dare to say he must have died

That President Biya is killed on social media is nothing new in the country but what is particularly unique about this situation is the fact that the Unity palace occupant is silent amidst a ravaging global pandemic which has kept almost every world leader busy

Opposition leader Maurice Kamto recently called on the President to take his full responsibilities as a leader and tackle the virus heads on, warning he will assume the office of the President should the 87 years old chided to remain behind the scene

The 7 days ultimatum from the opposition leader further fueled the debate on the whereabouts of their President amidst a health challenge which is fast becoming a national emergency

But his supporters aren’t buying, many say the President is already tackling the crisis through his government and must not necessarily be seen on TV talking about it.

A leading French newspaper in one of its recent editions wonders what the population wants the president to say.

Nothing new?

President Biya thrives in uncertainty and has proven time and time again that he has a very thick skin and resistant to public pressure nomatter the time and moments

He is also known to be awkwardly physically absent in major moments of crisis, opting to execute through his government ministers and other other representatives while operating from behind the scenes.

Examples are abound of the President significantly absent From the national stage each time the nation comes calling, only appearing on scheduled traditional media outings to talk to the Cameroonians people.

During the deadly Eseka train disasters on October 30th 2016 which killed hundreds of Cameroonians, many criticized the President for his total absence from the national stage, arguing he should have atleast address the nation or visit the disaster site.

But while government speedily rollout measures including compensation package to victims, the President waited for many months, only to address the issue at his traditional new year message in December, invoking old wounds and questioning his proximity to the people

The President has rarely addressed the nation out of his traditional pre-scheduled state addresses when it comes to the Anglophone crisis despite to numeours deaths and interntional pressure each time people are killed.

But as fresh remorse continuous to spread about his state of health, observers of this country’ politics are aware that nomatter how bad the coronavirus situation might be, President Biya will only address it during his traditional May 20th speech and that’s as good as we can get.
