The Senate of Old People Goes Operational in Cameroon

Paul Biya is the President of Cameroon (80 years), Achidi Achu, former Prime Minister now senator clocks, (79 years), Peter Musonge, another former Prime Minister is also senator (71 years), Dakole Daissala, ex MP and former Minister of state(70 years), Chief Mukete eldest Member of the senate,(95 years), Cavaye Yeguie Djibril , National Assemble Speaker (73 years). These are the men who will lead Cameroon to an emerging country by 2035. When we know that some of these ages are converted into CFA, there is nothing to expect from all these political deceits.  Much noise and comments were made on state media on the appointment of 30 senators by the President of the Republic, Paul Biya. Yet political pundits have been wondering if such appointment appropriate in a country that claims to be democratic.  To many, it was a concert organized by sycophancy "intellectuals" who live in the hope of being noticed by Paul Biya, in fact Mr. President’s men. The Senate, like the National Assembly is supposed to control the executive. But when it is the head of state who directly appoints 30% of the members of this institution and by unjust laws, his party controls more than 80% of elected senators, what should we expect? A rubber stamp senate! In view of what is on the horizon, it is not excluded that the main institutions of the country in the hands of men and women whom the youngest is 77 years old.
