Eric Kingue To Challenge Biya In 2018 Presidential Elections

Paul Eric Kingue, former Mayor of Njombe-Penja has announced his candidature for the 2018 Presidential election. He made the declaration over the weekend in a meeting in the port city of Douala.

He is officially the presidential candidate for the New Cameroon Patriotic Movement, MPCN and says he will heal the sickness which he says Cameroon is suffering from.

The politician who fell out with the ruling CPDM after the Biya regime “wrongfully” jailed him, vowed while declaring his candidature, that he will rid the country of favouritism, corruption and misery.


In a purely political campaign tone, he stressed that political power should belong to the masses and not to a few individuals who decide the fate of all citizens.

He presented what seemed like a preview of his political manifesto which he promised to unveil in the days ahead. Paul Eric Kingue said his New Cameroon Patriotic Movement political party would ensure electoral reforms by reviewing the electoral code, instituting a two-round election and a single ballot paper system.

He equally promised to restore supposedly lost sanity in the School of Administration and Magistracy, ENAM.

Paul Eric Kingue was detained in 2008 alongside ace Cameroonian musician, Lapiro de Mbanga (now deceased). They were both accused of instigating riots in February that year and jailed for  seven years.

He was later released in 2015 after the Supreme Court ruled in favour of an appeal by his counsel. Upon his release, he has been struggling with the loss of his wife and son and living a secluded life away from the public.
