Maurice Kamto presses CPDM leaders to clarify alleged meeting to boycott elections

By Charity Nginyu

Maurice Kamto, leader of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (CRM) party, has taken legal action against prominent figures within the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM).

This action follows the resurfacing of allegations dating back to December 2019, when a local newspaper, La Nouvelle, claimed that CPDM leaders held a clandestine meeting in Baham with the purported aim of sabotaging the 2020 elections by dissuading voters from supporting Kamto.

Through legal channels on April 1st, 2024, Maurice Kamto summoned CPDM Scribe, Jean Kuete, Minister of Public Works, Emmanuel Nganou Djoumessi, and Luc Sindjoun to address these lingering accusations.

The summons demands clarification on several crucial points, shedding light on the alleged meeting and its attendees. Kamto’s first query seeks confirmation of whether the CPDM leaders were aware of La Nouvelle’s publication since December 2nd, 2019.

The second point presses the CPDM figures to confirm the occurrence of the clandestine gath
ering detailed by La Nouvelle. If confirmed, Kamto seeks insights into the meeting’s purpose and the identities of its participants.

Also, Kamto’s legal summons questions whether Professor Maurice Kamto indeed found himself at Professor Luc Sindjoun’s residence on the mentioned date, as reported by La Nouvelle, alongside the summoned CPDM leaders.

To Maurice Kamto, the failure of the CPDM leaders to refute the claims laid out by La Nouvelle suggests a tacit acknowledgment of the alleged meeting’s occurrence, enhancing further speculation and scrutiny.
