Cameroun Cameroon Archives de Ahmadou Ahidjo et de Paul Biya
Information sur la Vidéo
Opens with the National Anthem of Cameroon, followed by clips of President Paul Biya (b. 1933- ), successor to Ahmadou Ahidjo (1924-1989). It shows the glory years, with Ahidjo strengthening his grip on power, which he later hands over to a seemingly acquiescent Biya in 1982. Ahidjo hoped to run the show behind the scenes.
Unfortunately, Biya brought in his own friends and a row ensued, culminating in a failed coup in 1984. Ahidjo ran to exile in France, and layer Senegal where he later died in 1989. To this day his remains are still to be repatriated to the country he ruled for almost a quarter century. I do not own the footage used, I just compiled them in my own way. Sorry for the audio...
