Long serving President of Cameroon, Paul Biya, would be making a major televised address to his central African nation on Tuesday, the presidency in the capital Yaounde said in a statement to TODAY NEWS AFRICA USA on Monday evening.

The short statement by Samuel Mvondo Ayolo did not disclose what Mr Biya who has been in power for almost four decades would be discussing.

The presidency said the major address would be broadcast live on television and radio stations at 8p.m. Central African Time.

Battered by Boko Haram terrorists in the far north, the Anglophone crisis in the Northwest and Southwest regions, and by daily struggles of hard life almost everywhere else, Cameroon, a country that used to pride itself as ‘mini Africa’, is now on the brink of collapse.

Mr Biya, who would be joining other leaders from around the world in New York next week for the United Nations General Assembly starting on September 17, may be greeted by major protests from Anglophone activists who want to secede from Cameroon, and from supporters of political prisoners.
