Cabinet Shake-up in Kondengui

Last Friday at about 5pm, President Biya carried out another cabinet reshuffle. Former Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization Marafa Hamidou Yaya, Former Minister of Finance Policarp Abah Abah and former General Manager of Camair, Yves Michel Fotso have been moved from the Kondengui Ministerial block to SED, at Camp Yayap. Confidential sources hinted that the move by government to transfer the three personalities out of the Kondengui Prison to SED is part of a strategy to control the numerous letters of Marafa as well as the recent tennis tournament that brings them together. More so, allegations that Abah Abah recently attempted to escape from Kondengui has also ignited government to reinforce security measures a source hinted. Yet another source hinted that in the days ahead five more Kondengui cabinet ministers will be transferred to SED where they will be kept in isolated areas. Besides, it is alleged that the decision by SDF National Chairman Ni John Fru Ndi to provide his lawyers to defend Marafa in court has also contributed to the cabinet shake-up. Sources hinted that there is panic in government as Fru Ndi is determined to use Marafa Hamidou Yaya to know many things that transpired in the early 90s. However, well-placed sources linked to the SDF secretariat also hinted that Ni John Fru Ndi met with the Think Tank of the SDF to strategize on the issue. Notwithstanding, we also gathered that Marafa envoys were in Bamenda a week ago to meet Ni John Fru Ndi.
