The Unspoken Words Of Biya’s End Of Year Speech

In his traditional end-of-year speech to the nation, Paul Biya, president of Cameroon focused on Politics, Economy, Health, Security and sports.

Biya failed to tell Cameroonians why the celebration of 50years of Cameroons reunification was not effectuated in 2013 after he made it clear on this same day last year that the celebration MUST hold this year (2013), and even emphasized in the month of September after casting his vote for the twin elections, which he said «I shall be in Buea in December for the reunification celebrations”.

He was certainly ashamed to pronounce again that he will be going to Buea by 2014,because he knows well that he has deceived the people for two good years.How a presidential lie could be so grieviouse that paralysed activities in the south west region,a lie that has kept many wondering if the vision of 2035 could be achieved.

Biya did not really paint an atmosphere of insecurity in the country; he did not tell Cameroonians what is causing the numerous killings in our boarders’ in spite the fact that Cameroon has a battery of soldiers.
He has also failed to tell the nation how much has been collected from embezzlers who have been thrown into jail.

  1. Biya is aware of the fact that time is running out for him. Watch out, for whenever he steps foot in Buea, he is bidding Southern Cameroons bye bye
