Accused by Jeune Afrique of being the linchpin of Maurice Kamto's European tour, Ghislain Nokam denies
Ghislain Nokam sent a right of reply to the pan-African magazine Jeune Afrique in which he said he had no ties nor with MRC, even less the Anti-Sardinards Brigade.
In an article published on January 19, 2020, in the columns of Jeune Afrique, entitled "The diaspora is preparing its revolution" was referring to the preparations for the trip of the president of the MRC, our colleague presented Ghislain Nokam like the linchpin of this tour.
“On January 18 in Cologne (Germany), the Anti-Sardinard Brigades (BAS) of Europe and North America were to meet to discuss the future of their opposition movement to President Paul Biya. These diaspora organizations on the front line of the protest plan operations from France, Ou Thian Abdoulaye, aka Calibri Calibro, founded the first BAS in 2018. Since then, the movement has spread to Germany, the United Kingdom (where it is headed by Emmanuel Kemta), the United States (with the “general” Madi Kom), Italy, Switzerland, Belgium and Canada. The BAS work in particular with Robert Waffo Wanto, head of the Cameroonian diaspora council, Brice Nitcheu, from the Collective of democratic organizations in the Cameroonian diaspora, and Mado Sawama, from the group of Amazons in France. According to our information, these allies are preparing the reception of the opponent Maurice Kamto in Europe and North America, in liaison with Ghislain Nokam, part of his party, the MRC, in France. Kamto is expected in Paris, the 1er February in Montreal, from 5 to 7, in Toronto on 8 and in Washington from 9 to 11 ", could we read the magazine.
However, a few hours after the publication of the above-mentioned press article, on January 20, 2020, Ghislain Nokam sent a right of reply to Jeune Afrique. In this document, which arrived at the editorial office, Ghislain Nokam denies any filiation with the MRC and the Anti-Sardinard Brigade and claims to be a member of civil society, deputy mayor of the city of Touques, near Deauville in Normandy, France.
"There is no doubt that you wrongly associated me with all the other people and entities mentioned in your article insofar as not only do they and I have no relation, but in addition I never had to meet one of these people, called the Brigade anti-sardinards (BAS). I am a member of civil society, deputy mayor of my city, Touques (near Deauville in Normandy), I have never been a member of a Cameroonian political party, I am not an activist of the MRC and even less a member of this party. You therefore understand that your article is highly defamatory towards me. Also, at the same time as I would be grateful to you to publish in the same forms this right of reply in your next publication. I inform you of the imminent referral of French justice against your newspaper and any prepose implicate in this act stripped of professionalism ”, he wrote.
