2018 ELECTION: “MAURICE KAMTO YOU ARE A TRAITOR” – BY HIS OWN SUBJECTS, AFTER AN OPEN DISPUTE WITH HIS SON
cameroondailyjournal.com|He is accused of “traitor” by his “subjects” after openly fighting his “son” Maurice Kamto during the last presidential election to preserve his privileges with the power of Yaounde.
Several weeks after the presidential election, the tension swells between SM Max Pokam and many of his subjects has not been watered down. On the contrary, it takes on a larger scale. In the last, SM Pokam would be since Thursday, October 25, 2018 not in his chieftaincy, but in the neighboring chieftaincy of Batié.
According to information received he found refuge to escape the fury of the people. Indeed, the resentment of a large part of the Baham people towards their king, took on greater proportions after the last presidential election. At the point where this guardian of the tradition is suddenly become claustrophile, because of the ridicule of which it is more and more the object.
The miseries of the senator-king who had started since his choice to campaign for the Democratic Rally of the Cameroonian People (Rdpc) were accentuated on the eve of the election on 7 October. While some thought that the validation of the candidature of Maurice Kamto, worthy son Baham, among the candidates called to challenge Paul Biya, candidate of the Rdpc, would plunge the head of his village in the embarrassment, this one seems to have rather easily makes his choice in favor of candidate Biya. During his outings during the pre and post-election period, he did not fail to openly call his subjects to follow him in the same voice.
Rumors of what he would have, to ensure that he was really followed, asked his notables to drink a cadi; and others who said he would also put “fetishes” in the home of the candidate Maurice Kamto in Baham, were going to provoke the ire of several Bahamian natives. In audio recordings in ghomala (the main language of the Highlands) circulating on social networks, SM Max Pokam is treated to all the names of birds. “How will his ancestors behave from his ancestors in their tombs by learning this treachery? Since he chose his place as a senator to that of king, he ceases to be our king, “a lady fumbles in one of these recordings.
Faced with the rain of diatribes falling on him, SM Max Pokam ended up being psychologically affected. In a video made last Monday, October 22, he appeared very affected. With an inquisitive air and in a very calm tone, he makes his mea culpa. “I never denied Maurice Kamto. I have no problem with him. I never put fetishes on his house, “he refutes. “In a grant, every woman would like her son to be named as the heir; but she does not show it, “he confesses in” ghomala “. Far from producing the desired effect, this exit seems to have deemed “inadmissible” by a good part of the Baham people. This segment of the population believes that the “treason” of their king has been so serious and flagrant that it can not disappear in their memory anytime soon
