This year's 20th May celebrations was filled with, anxiety uncertainty and fear of the known, following different red and dark angles like Boko Haram, Anglophone Crisis and other societal grievances that could jeopardize security and ruin the day.

The day that began with heavy down pour mixed with thunder, hail and lighting, brought more fear as to whether the downpour was a 'sign of anger from above', or a 'shower of blessing in disguise'.

At the Presidential escort finally made its triumphant entrance into the 20th May Boulevard Yaounde, and President Biya, who from his appearance looked 'frail, frightened and fragile', despite the Legion of soldiers surrounding him from the air above in crafts, to  foot soldiers on the ground with all protective ammunition for his safety, jumped down from his Luxury Sedan, walked six steps, before the National Anthem welcomed him.

After the anthem, many held their breath as he walked to climb the black convertible limousine, that looked like the one that embarrased him last year.

As the Chief of Armed Forces, mounted the limousine and was parading round the ceremonial ground to commune with his people, one could read his mind from the unassertive looks in his eyes, that looked tired but alert, in case of any unforeseen eventuality.

Nothing assured him that his parade will end well, but after he finished the tour, and jumped down from the limousine, it drove up to the parking hitch free.
