- The strongman of Ntarikon, national president of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) has remained silent since his coastal electron, Jean Michel Nintcheu, failed in his attempt to organize a march in Douala on October 21, 2017.
Yet, the newspaper Repères on newsstands recalls on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, that in March 2017, Ni John Fru Ndi strongly opposed a similar demonstration, in support of federalism, projected by his MP. The Chairman openly opposed to a march planned by his representative in the Littoral, in support of federalism.
I do not want to be responsible for the death of Cameroonians,
he told his relatives, without formally taking a public position. Jean Michel Nintcheu, death in the soul and the opposition of his political leader, will retreated by canceling the said march.
The last public release of Ni John Fru Ndi dates back to October 3, 2017, in an interview with the French newspaper “Le Monde“, the day after the attempt of symbolic proclamation of independence of the fictitious Republic of Ambazonia, aborted on October 1 2017. Clashes between law enforcement and raging activists took place. The Chairman then held the President of the Republic, Paul Biya, as the “chief culprit” of the incidents recorded in the two English-speaking regions of the North-West and South-West.
The following October 4, still related to these events, driving the nail, Ni John Fru Ndi expressed the wish to see the Head of State of Cameroon, “to be brought before the International Court for” flagrant crimes and unprecedented violations of human rights“.
Since then, nothing. Which leads Repères to question: “Is the strong man of Ntarikon embarrassed by the activism of his representatives in the Littoral? As in March 2017, why did he not vote for or against the support march of October 21, 2017? Does the Chairman still control his Littoral counters? “
“Essential questions that sometimes resonate as a cold war between the immovable Fru Ndi and Jean Michel Nintcheu, very close to Joshua Osih Nambangi, first vice president of the SDF, sometimes presented as possible replacement of the Chairman,” comments the newspaper.
Note however that next Saturday, October 28, 2017, will be held an important meeting of the SDF in Bamenda under the chairmanship of the Chairman of the party, Ni John Fru Ndi. This meeting will be extended to mayors, MPs, senators and members of the National Advisory Council.
