Serge Espoir Matomba Early out of the gate

The Africa Report - - COUNTRY FOCUS -

As a mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil­lor in Douala, Matomba is crit­i­cal of the regime’s gov­er­nance. The young leader is one of the first politi­cians to make his in­ten­tions clear for the pres­i­den­tial race of 2018. His chances of win­ning are slim, as the dom­i­nant RDPC is gear­ing up for 84-year-old Pres­i­dent Paul Biya to run again, but Matomba is mak­ing a big­ger name for him­self in lo­cal and na­tional pol­i­tics through the Pe­u­ple Uni pour la Réno­va­tion So­ciale.
