Cameroon: President Paul Biya bids for seventh term

Published

P-Biya

Cameroon’s President Paul Biya disclosed on Friday his intention to run for re-election in October, aiming to extend his 36-year rule and keep his place on the roster of Africa’s longest-serving leaders.

The 85-year-old who came to power in 1982 when his predecessor retired is seeking a seventh term that could see him rule well into his 90s.

It would leave him in rare company after former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh were ousted in 2017. Of Africa’s living rulers, only Equatorial Guinea’s President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has ruled uninterrupted for longer.

He made this intention known in a tweet “I am willing to respond positively to your overwhelming calls. I will stand as Your Candidate in the upcoming presidential election”.

Biya, who has ruled virtually by decree since taking office, scrapped term limits from the constitution in 2008, allowing him to run again and prompting riots in which more than 40 people were killed.

 Meanwhile, African Union Commission chairman Moussa Faki said the organization would send an observation mission to the Oct. 7 polls, due to the peculiarity of the period for the Central African country and for Biya.

Top Brazilian actress, Bruna Marquezine has confirmed that she and Neymar have ended their relationship.

Marquezine didn’t go into details about the break-up when she spoke about it at a Gala event in Brazil on Thursday.

She said the relationship ending was bossed by Neymar adding that there is still “a lot of love” between both of them.



“It was a decision that came from him, but there is a lot of respect, a lot of love, for him and for everything that we have lived for,” she said in an interview. “You know I do not usually talk about my personal life. I’ll talk about it because I have to talk, but it will only be once.”

Reports had claimed that the famous pair were at odds over politics in their native country, where the country is in the midst of a heavily polarised presidential election.

But Marquezine was quick to clear up that point so as not to stoke anger in what she called a “very critical moment” for her country.

“I want it to be clear that it would not be for that,” she said. “It was a decision of him, but there is a lot of love and respect, it’s all right.”

The pair had been spotted together earlier in the month at Disneyland and have been dating off and on since 2012.

Chelsea vs Man United: Mourinho promises decency at Stamford return

Published

on

Jose Mourinho insists he will be on his best behaviour on his return to Stamford Bridge, but hopes his Manchester United side inflict Chelsea’s first defeat of the season on Saturday.



The Portuguese won three Premier League titles in two successful spells in charge of Chelsea, but has lost all three of his previous visits to Stamford Bridge as United manager without even scoring a goal.

And while Mourinho claimed that the fixture is now just like any other as far as he is concerned, he also conceded that he would not celebrate should United break that run to ease the mounting pressure on their manager.

“For me, it is another game,” said Mourinho. “Would I celebrate like crazy my team’s goal at Stamford Bridge or my team’s victory at Stamford Bridge? I don’t think so.

“I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years.”

“I want to do well for my team, players, support. I am 100 percent Manchester United tomorrow – no more space for anything other than respect for the stadium and the fans,” added Mourinho.

Mourinho’s promise to control his emotions comes at the end of a week in which he has been charged by the FA following comments he made towards a TV camera after his team’s dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle before the international break.

It is understood the United manager used “abusive, insulting or improper language” in his native tongue.

Even though Mourinho was never in danger of being suspended for the visit to his old club, United have requested an extension for his official response and the FA have duly allowed him until Wednesday to do so.

When asked whether he felt he was being victimised by the governing body, Mourinho insinuated he is more harshly treated than other managers.

“If I answer to your question I probably have another process because I cannot imply bias, so my answer is no answer,” he said.
