Who Is General Mayer - The General Who Holds Biya's Life In His Hands? [Portrait]

Paul Biya, like most other African heads of state, does not skimp on his security. To do this, the man has the means to afford the services of a retired Israeli General. His name, Mayer Heres.

Discreet, the colossus only reports to Paul Biya his direct employer. In the seraglio, he whispers that he has a special status because of his work. He is the boss of the Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) and also of the Presidential Guard.

He replaced Colonel Avi Sirvan, whose mentor he was, who died in a helicopter crash on 22 November 2010 between Yaoundé and Bamenda. Some sources claim that Mayer Heres was already, in Sirvan's time, the true boss of the two elite corps of BIR and GP.

Before Cameroon, General Mayer was military advisor to Marshal Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire (now DRC) and it is he who introduced Avi Sirvan to the Cameroonian head of state Paul Biya.

His major asset is the fact that he is not Cameroonian. The retired general of the Israeli army can therefore stay away from the struggles of ethno-regionalist clans whose palace Etoudi is the theater.
As a private law contractor, he escapes bureaucracy, including military. This privileged has direct access to this president difficult to approach, even for his ministers. To dispose of its budgets, the Israeli does not care about the vicissitudes of the chain of expenditure of the Treasury. Special funds are allocated to him.

He also advises the president in charge of security issues. It is said that he is the eyes and ears of Paul Biya. The Palace of Etoudi, the man knows it as his pocket and is very feared by other employees.
