WHY IS EMMANUEL MACRON VISITING CAMEROON (PAUL BIYA) NOW

• Macron is announced in Yaoundé

• Nothing is official yet

• Here are the probable reasons for this visit

According to Jeune Afrique, in Yaoundé, Emmanuel Macron will be received by his counterpart Paul Biya. The two Heads of State will discuss several subjects of common interest. “If he is well in Cameroon, Emmanuel Macron will be received by his counterpart, Paul Biya. It will then be a question of security issues – Anglophone crisis, threat of Boko Haram in the north of the country… – but also political ones. writes Young Africa.

This information was confirmed by BFMTV journalists during the traditional July 14 military parade. For them, Emmanuel Macron should return to Cameroon and Benin at the end of this month, probably.
If for the moment, on the official website of the Elysée, Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Cameroon does not appear in the July agenda of the French president, the confidences are becoming more and more persistent.

Several reasons undoubtedly motivate this visit of the French president to Cameroon. The most recent are of course Cameroon’s rapprochement with Russia. Indeed, a few months ago, Paul Biya sealed an important military agreement with Putin. This agreement did not really please Paris, which immediately dispatched emissaries to Yaoundé. France sees Russia as a threat to its African backyard.

In addition to this fundamental reason, it is necessary to note the question of the succession of Paul Biya which is currently raging. As usual, Paris would like to have its eyes on everything that is going on in order to keep control. Does France already have a pawn? Difficult to define at the moment. The recent arrest by Wilfried Ekanga in Paris of Emmanuel Macron is also not to be ignored.
