Barrister Akere Muna Disrespects His Father's Memory, And Shamelessly Voice Out His Intentions To Run For The 2018 Presidentials

Image may contain: one or more people

Barrister Akere Muna, son of late Solomon Tandeng Muna, first Prime Minister of  the federated state of West Cameroon from January 11, 1968 to June 2, 1972, and Vice President of the Federal Republic of Cameroon from 1970 to 1972, has publicly declared his intentions of challenging President Paul Biya in the 2018 Presidential elections.

Akere Muna, who once denied having any political aspirations in Cameroon, has gone back to his own words, shocking the world and English speaking Cameroonians in particular.

In a speech announcement made on his official campaign site Akere Muna 2018, the high profile Legal Mind addressed Cameroonians, taking advantage of the present situation of the country, and presenting himself as the ideal solution. Bullshit!

Read the announcement speech below:


October 8, 2017

My Fellow Cameroonians, 

Our Country is now at the crossroads of its history.
We must now move Towards a New Republic.

A New Republic that finds strength in diversity,
A New Republic founded on good governance,
A New Republic built on the Rule of Law,
A New Public inspired by the will of the people,
A New Republic that is a Union we must define,
A New Republic that must cultivate zero-tolerance for corruption, tribalism, nepotism and favouritism.
A New Republic that reaffirms justice for all, healthcare for all and education for all.

My commitment to our Union and to our nation is resolute. I have therefore taken the decision to be part of the solution that our country is crying out for: the creation of this New Republic.

It is with a great sense of responsibility and humility that I have decided to inform you of my intention to run for the office of President Republic of Cameroon in the elections constitutionally scheduled for 2018.

Our Union faces serious challenges. Lives have been lost and many of our fellow citizens have been injured. Today, our hearts and prayers go out to all those who lost their dear ones. To the injured, we wish you all a swift recovery. Public and private property has been destroyed. The stability of the Nation is in peril.

Our institutions and systems of governance must be relevant to the hopes and aspirations of the people. The bond between citizens and their government must never break down.

I have been blessed with a national and international career in Civil Society and International institutions. I consider that my experience as a Member, and later Chairperson, of Eminent Persons Panel of the African Peer Review Mechanism, has given me the pointed expertise in evaluating the governance of the corporate, social, economic and political sectors of African countries. This, indeed, has helped me to identify and analyse the ailments and afflictions of our beloved country, Cameroon.

As a member of our Civil Society, I believe that I am in a strategic position to create a non-partisan platform to catalyze the transformation of our nation. Therefore, in the coming months I will continue to reach out
• to our Youths,
• to Civil Societies
• to Political Parties, and
• to Traditional Rulers.

The cornerstone of this movement will be the Women and the Youth of this country. They give so much to our society and get very little in return. In spite of this injustice, their energy is unrelenting. I ask all the Youth and women of Cameroon to accompany me in this journey. I urge you to join the NOW! Movement and to participate actively in the creation of a New Republic.
• For too long we have lived in a country without a clear future,
• For too long we have lived in a country where the people have no voice,
• For too long we have lived in a country where the women have no choice,
• For too long we have lived in a country where the poor and under privileged have no chance.

We have been transformed by material needs and blinded by greed. This is not Cameroonian.
• Together, we have the power to change things for the better,
• Together we can direct that power to succeed,
• Together we can change our ways,
• Together we can change our society,
• Together we can change our country, and
• Together we can choose our leaders

The days of waiting are over.

We must begin here, now and today. Those who thought they put us to sleep now realize that we are still awake. Those who thought we should live in fear now realize we stand up for ourselves and for our country.

Our country must remain united by its diversity and not divided by it.

Fellow Cameroonians,
Join our march Towards the New Republic.
Join the Now! Movement Be part of the change that 21st Century Cameroon deserves.
Join me and let us be part of the solution.
Long Live Cameroon!
