The Cameroonian government has prohibited the opposition Cameroon Communal Party for National Reconciliation (CCPN) from holding a rally to welcome its Chairman, Cabral Libii.
In a recent communique, the Divisional Officer of Ngambe Subdivision in the Littoral region, Nokuri Samuel, banned the party’s gathering scheduled for this Saturday July 27, stating members failed present a justifying document attesting that Cabral Libii is the party’s Chairman.
The subdivision’s chief administrator threaded to punish members of the party who would defy the ban, and instructed security forces in the area to enforce the order.
Cabral Libii became an influential politician in Cameroon, following his exploits at the 2018 presidential elections, where he emerged third under the banner of the UNIVERS party.
Since the controversial elections where 86 year-old President Paul Biya was declared winner with a landslide victory, opposition party rallies have either been banned, or met with heavy military crackdown.
Meanwhile, all anti-opposition protests and rallies organised by the ruling CPDM Party, have often been held unperturbed. The most recent of such rallies, was the CPDM Bafoussam Grand Rally, where some party heavyweights blamed the CRM for engineering anti-government protests abroad.
