Ministerial Reshuffle Of March 2, 2018 - This Is How Paul Biya Played Martin Belinga Eboutou

The director of the civil Cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic, fallen in favor of the ministerial reshuffle of March 2, 2018, seems to have badly digested this decision of his friend and President, Paul Biya.

In its issue no. 629 on newsstands on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, the newspaper Repères relates the circumstances of the dismissal of Martin Melinga Eboutou. We learn that everything starts with his departure to Switzerland for health reasons. The diplomat, worn out by recurrent health concerns, shows signs of fatigue. Also, says the newspaper, the President of the Republic will advise him to take the time to heal and come back shark to be attack for the elections.

" Left a few weeks earlier, Martin Belinga Eboutou is taken from his Swiss trip by a phone call from the entourage of the president. Jean Noah, then aide-de-camp of the President of the Republic, announced to him a few days before the reshuffle of March 2, that the head of state finalized and sealed the copy of the government. And that his name does not appear anywhere. Destabilized by this news, Martin Belinga Eboutou decides to rally Cameroon in emergency and take the first plane. But that day, March 1, a violent snow storm nails all the aircraft at the Geneva airport. Displeased, he is forced to spend an extra night in the Swiss city.

But, the man does not hold up anymore. His heart is in Cameroon where he multiplies telephone conversations with his henchman, the aide-de-camp of the Head of State, who informs him of the minute by minute events and the actions of the President. The latter, in whom the president had only limited confidence, will be sacked a few days after the reshuffle. On March 2 at 8 pm, the decree that reorganizes the government is finally read on the national radio. Morning Belinga Eboutou is replaced by Samuel Mvondo Ayolo in the civil cabinet. His deputy, Joseph Le, is sent to the Ministry of the Public Service, while Oswald Baboke inherits the position of deputy. The size of the government had become obese enough to fit "Tom dollar".

When he arrives on the evening of March 2nd in Yaoundé, the news has already spread like wildfire. Severed by the one he considered his friend, Belinga Eboutou digests badly what is akin to humiliation, but must face. Except that he still keeps a map that he will shoot two days later. Indeed, on March 5, during the transfer of service, he will refuse to release the office for his successor to take possession of the post. Reason: it requires the latter to sign at the bottom of a document certifying the good conduct of the firm's accounts. Sources close to the civil cabinet report that Samuel Mvondo Ayolo will oppose a refusal to this approach. "If you do not sign this document, I will not release the office," reported Belinga Eboutou to his successor. This last, fleeing a clash with his predecessor, leaves the office. His deputy, Oswald Baboke, overwhelmed by the situation, will give him his office.
Left alone in the office, Martin Belinga Eboutou lets burst his anger. While he is grumbling, he will start to sound out loud. "Did he dare to do this to me?" he launches against the head of state. For a week, he will keep the office of the director of the civil cabinet. Nobody, not even the elements of the Presidential Security Directorate, will approach him. The presidency of the Republic, between laughter, aside and indifference, will witness a delusion in order of the one who was considered a god in the Republic. On Monday, 12 March, sources close to the civilian cabinet reported, he will visit his home in the Bastos neighborhood and bring back bags containing banknotes.

With Mvondo Ayolo, in the presence of witnesses, the two men will make the accounts of the cabinet and restore order. The money brought back is actually missing in the firm's financial statements. So it must be used to fill the gaps noted, the "customs" having had a light hand during his reign. Once the accounts are updated, the surplus is returned to the owner who refuses to take it. "Take back your money and take it away, it's not the property of the firm." Martin Belinga, after a lively and corrosive exchange with the director of the civil cabinet, refuses to execute and leaves the office leaving behind his bags filled with banknotes. The DCC will immediately send a collaborator to make a deposit of the quarreled money to the public treasury.

But rather than leave the palace, he will continue to pace the corridors hoping for an audience with the President of the Republic. In vain .Ministerial Reshuffle Of March 2, 2018-This Is How Paul Biya Played Martin Belinga Eboutou
