The Government of the United States of America through its embassy in Yaoundé has called on all the candidates to the October 7 Presidential election to wait for the official results to be proclaimed by the Constitutional Council.
In a statement on its Facebook page, the embassy also declared the neutrality of its homeland in the entire process.
“The US Embassy congratulates all Cameroonians who voted on October 7…. We reiterate our neutrality with respect to the outcome and strongly support the right of the Cameroonian people to choose their leader through the democratic process. We call on all parties to wait until the official results are announced before making pronouncements about the supposed winner,” the statement on its facebook page read.
Looking at the already chaotic course the process is taking, the US Government called on all parties to seek nonviolent means in resolving their differences.
The statement which was published on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, came less than 24 hours since Maurice Kamto declared himself winner of the Presidential election.
Moreover, with the ghost of foreign interference looming around, the embassy is taking a preemptive move to put out any suspicion against the United States government which has been accused in many instances of interference in African politics.
