Twin Elections: CPDM Gets Victory Through Vote-buying, ELECAM Workers


By Basil Mbuye

The Municipal and Legislative elections of on Sunday, February 9, across the nation witnessed some irregularities in some polling centres, through which the ruling Cameroon Peoples Democratic Movement, CPDM, reportedly rigged itself to victory.

Despite the low turnout in some polling stations, reports of irregularities were glaring.

When this reporter visited the polling centres at the Cameroon Opportunity and Industrialisation Centre, OIC, Buea, a member of the opposition Social Democratic Front, SDF, decried the fact that votes were being bought. The SDF representative said he had received a call from someone asking him to come to OIC to stop the irregularities.

Another SDF polling agent said he was approached by a polling agent of the CPDM to accept the sum of FCFA 10,000 for him to turn a blind eye on the irregularities and vote-buying. The SDF polling agent said he turned down the offer and started monitoring the CPDM polling agent who later approached ELECAM chairpersons.

It was also reported that the ruling CPDM party brought boys from Bakweri Town who voted, despite the fact that their names were not on the Electoral Register. The boys came and met the ELECAM chairperson who pretended that their names were on the Electoral Register and they all voted.

An SDF polling agent recounted how, when voting started at OIC around 8.45am, everything was going on well, until a former CPDM Parliamentarian showed up. To him, it was after the former CPDM MP left that he started noticing suspicious movements.

Hear him: “A CPDM agent who was in the same polling station with me proposed the sum of FCFA 10,000 to me so that I should turn a blind eye on their electoral malpractices. I told him I was ready, just to know what method he was about to use. Confident that I was with him, he told me that at the last hour of voting, they will put in ballot papers which they have put in envelopes inside the ballot boxes. I had to immediately inform a member of the SDF party for him to be alert and also to caution other SDF polling agents. When I was called outside, I indicated to the CPDM polling agent that our deal was exposed and I was cautioned. Knowing that our deal could not continue, he started approaching ELECAM chairpersons.”

However, some observers hold that the SDF inability to see that they have more than two agents per polling station facilitated the CPDM rigging machinery.
