85-Year-Old Biya Wins 7th Term

Cameroon’s President Paul Biya has won a seventh term in office in polls marred by low turnout and voter intimidation.

Mr Biya, at 85 sub-Saharan Africa’s oldest leader, took 71.3% of the vote, according to official results.

Opposition calls for a re-run of the presidential election were rejected by the Constitutional Council last week.

Riot police were deployed on Sunday to the major cities of Yaoundé and Douala in case of opposition protests.

Cameroon’s two English-speaking provinces have been hit by more than a year of violent protests and attacks by separatist rebels which have left hundreds dead.

Two days before results were announced, Africa’s longest-serving President Teodoro Obiang Nguema of neighbouring Equatorial Guinea congratulated Mr Biya on his win.

    Hypocrisy, greedy and selfish useless African leaders who do not want others to rule! Shame on you Biya or whatever you are called idiot! Why can’t you leave room for others to rule? As if you own the country together with your family sure!

    Mother Africa!! Y is this continent full of selfish and injustice leaders. An old man of 85 still clinging on power sure Africans. Is anything good that Biya or bear is thinking for Cameroon. That age is far beyond the retiring age. God save the pipo of Cameroon from that evil king ruling them. Life will terminate him.

    Because of such individuals this continent will never progress. Instead of limiting his terms and bring in fresh people with fresh ideas he wants to rule until death.

    It’s really bad to hear that Biya wants to continue leading at 85 years. Shame indeed. Such leaders stagnate developed. Failures and thieves in fact never allow winners to take over from them.
