Paul Biya has been sworn in as president of Cameroon for another seven-year term aafter ruling the country for nearly 36 years.
Biya emerged winner of the central African country’s election in October. He recorded a landslide victory.
He won the election in spite of his questionable record that include corruption and human rights abuse allegations.
Biya acknowledged the “frustrations’’ of people in the English-speaking north-west and south-west regions, who feel marginalised in the otherwise French-speaking country.
“War mongers, who are jeopardising our national unity and preaching secession should know that they will face not only the full force of the law, but also the determination of our defence and security forces,” he said during the ceremony.
