The Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC), the main opposition party, has definitively expelled Michèle Ndoki, one of the main figures of this party, after months of tension and misunderstandings with the executive board on its intentions. The decision dates back a week and was only communicated on Thursday 13th July.
Michèle Ndoki is definitively excluded from the ranks of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon, the party of Maurice Kamto. It was in a 48-page decision, dated July 6th, 2023, and signed by the party’s disciplinary body, that this sentence was pronounced. And for good reason, according to the decision, “refusal to conform to the political line and the discipline of the party”.
Michèle Ndoki, who aspired to challenge the current leader of the MRC Maurice Kamto at the next party convention, is therefore stopped dead in her tracks.
Another blow for this professional lawyer, until now vice-president of the MRC, who had already experienced the horrors of prison in 2019, after protest movements by her party to the victory of President Paul Biya, at the last presidential election.
After Michèle Ndoki, other exclusions could follow in the ranks of the MRC, mainly that of Richard Tamfu, support of Ndoki in his intention to run for the presidency of the party. The latter is accused of inappropriate, defamatory, and insulting remarks for some against Maurice Kamto in particular.
