Yaounde, Cameroon Africa. January 2011 (Cameroon News) – As the Presidential elect ions draw closer there is a serious lack of opposition for President Paul Biya.
The opposition had been sending out strong signals as if to find out how the citizens of Cameroon would react if they were to go in for an alliance with the ruling party.
But now just after a few days of testing it looks like the leader of the Opposition party SDF is going to go ahead with an alliance with President Biya irrespective of whether the people of the country want it or not.
The two leaders who previously could not so much so stand the sight of each other and were bitter rivals now seem to have forgotten all bitterness and ach as if they are the best of friends.
It seems like they have ironed out all their differences for in a time frame of less than a month the two leaders have had numerous meetings and all of them in the presence of the press and the media as though they want to spell it out top the world that they are now allies.
Though at the initial stages of their interaction there was not even the slightest doubt that they were taking it slow for the purpose of analyzing the public response to such a union.
But now those times seemed to have passed on and it looks like the alliance is more or less finalized though both leaders have not made any such revelations to either the press or the public.
The series of talks that the two leader have been indulging in coupled with the numerous photographs being flashed to the media with the two leaders shaking hands indicate that there is no doubt of a great camaraderie between them.
The press and the public now feel that there is absolutely no doubt that the opposition party SDF will get together with the ruling party for a presidential majority.
This news is being fuelled by the entry of numerous prominent names of the opposition party now getting into key roles in the government.
However people are now just awaiting the moment when they will see John Fru Ndi who was once the most bitter enemy of the President now campaigning for him.
But experts seem to be of the opinion that considering what has previously happened in the political scenario on other countries in Africa nothing is impossible here.
In spite of being charged with numerous cases in the civil as well as criminal court Ndi look pretty unperturbed as he gets ready to go and the alliance with the President has given him some more space.
Their latest rendezvous at the Agro –Pastoral Show in Ebolowa has now confirmed the news of their union and the public are now pretty sure that they will see the two parties combat the elections together this year.
The downtrodden and the under privileged category of Cameroon now feel very strongly that whatever hope was left for them is also no longer there since they feel deceived when a leader like John Fru Ndi who had strongly voiced his protests for the policies of the government and the dictatorial rule of the President till the very recent past turn sides all of a sudden and start supporting the regime.
However all hope is not lost as yet as the people of Cameroon are now bestowing all their blessings on Kah Walla and the Hon. Ayah Paul Abine.
But it is yet for the public and the media to wait and watch if the two will get together to offer a stronger opposition to the other two.
But right now the hot news in the country are the two “worst foes turned best friends”- Ndi and Biya.
