After waiting for two days for the Constitutional council to find way pass the legal army of international legal icon professor Mauroce kamto, the country’s outgoing chief opposition party the SDF today October 18th 2018 has an opportunity of their own.
Led by former BAR president and staunch SDF supporter Bannister Sama, SDF’s team join the frail of those calling for cancellation of the October 7th polls.
The party of Joshua osih is calling for total cancellation of the result as his legal team roll out evidences and make meaningful legal arguments in English and french as to why the elections should be canceled.
But just hours into the hearing which started late after the party decided they won’t present their case before the courts if it was not being broadcast live like the other cases according to a tweet from Joshua osih,, the party lawyers were quick to reprimand the council, accusing them of bias as the court’s president Clement Atangana caution their team of lawyers to be brief and safe time.
SDF lawyers reminded the President Clement Atangana that Kamto and team had hijacked the courts for two days for “political rallies” and they had to wait patiently for their turn and the courts did not caution them to be time cautious.
“We need a level playing field Mr president” one of the lawyers said
But it was perhaps the begging attitude of the lead counsel which angers the tens of thousands of Cameroonians Cameroonian following the court sessions.
SDF’s barrister Sama responds to President Clement Atangana’s question when ask if they (SDF) can guarantee the participation of persons in Anglophone regions within the 40 days maximum stated by law if the council were to cancel elections there has kept many disappointed
The legal mind failed to rise to the occasion, rather went on a monologue, practically begging the president of the republic Paul Biya to “talk to his children” which to him will end the war within 5 days.
Legal experts labeled his response as naive and says its telling of a party which has not even understood the Anglophone crisis in the first place
