Dr. Fon Doh Gahyongha of Bali Nyonga, Mezam Division, has said his appointment as Senator has sealed a pact between President Paul Biya and Bali Nyonga people. Speaking to The Post on his maiden outing since his appointment as Senator, Fon Gahyongha said, he dashed to Bali from Yaounde so that his people could catch a glimpse of how a Senator looks like, and to jointly celebrate May 20 celebrations with his people.

Before the arrival of the Divisional Officer, DO, for Bali, at the ceremonial ground, Senator Fon Gahyongha deliberately created anxiety. He kept people waiting for his arrival at the Municipal grandstand situated near the palace. The impresarios at the occasion heightened expectations with several announcements, calling on the population to focus their eyes on the road to the palace. Then a black Prado car emerged from the palace flanked on both sides by eight “royal guards”.

The car moved slowly and stopped where the country’s flag was hoisted. Then, Senator Gahyongha, gathering the loose ends of his “gandura” and fixing his green-red-yellow sash, waved at the population with a smile. He moved to his seat where his wives and notables were positioned. The population applauded ceaselessly and gave him a standing ovation, but for the Fon of Bawock, Fon Nana Wanda, alternate to Senator Simon Achidi Achu, who never stood up.


“The sole message I have for my people is to first thank President Biya for this appointment and to let them continue to support him because so many good things have been programmed for the Bali people. I only rushed back here from Yaounde so that my people see the new status of their Fon, because they have never known before now how a Senator looks like.” 

He said, “ CPDM militants have increased in number because others who were with the opposition have seen the light and cannot afford to remain in darkness.” The Divisional Officer of Bali Subdivision, Divine Kamara Kamara, said May 20 celebrations in Bali  experienced a special touch and attributed the massive turnout to the “home coming” of Senator Gahyongha.

For his part, the Mayor of Bali Council, Raymond Gwanyalla, said Bali people are solidly behind President Biya and will enable him to succeed in all his endeavours. During a three-hour march past, the CPDM, SDF, UPC, NUDP and Dr. George Nyamdi’s Social Liberal Congress, SLC, all demonstrated show of numerical strength. One staunch CPDM militant, retired civil servant, Pa Wilfred Tita Fonkwa Dob, was the lone recipient of a medal in Bali.
