Robert Kona, the founder of the party, wants to take over the leadership provided by deputy Cabral Libii

Reached by telephone by SBBC, Robert Kona assures that he wants to take back control of the Cameroonian Party for National Reconciliation (PCRN), the political group that he co-founded in 2003 with Albert Fleury Massardine. “I would like to be given the presidency of the party so that I can reshape things,” says this former administrative assistant, who retired at his home in Ndoukoula, in the Far North region.
To achieve his goals, he initiated civil proceedings with the Court of First Instance of the department of Mayo-Kani (Kaélé), in the Far North region, against the deputy Cabral Libii, the current national president of the PCRN. Albert Fleury Massardine, the other founding father of the PCRN, is not associated with this procedure. And for Robert Kona “this is not a legal complaint”. He adds: “it is rather a complaint which aims to carry out rearrangements in the house of the PCRN”.
The founder of the PCRN cites the imperative of working to reconcile the Cameroonian people with themselves among these immediate adjustments that he intends to carry out if his procedure is ever successful. “National reconciliation is our compass,” he says. But he does not hide the fact that he has difficulty experiencing what he considers to be his exclusion. “There is no communication between Cabral Libii and me. He makes decisions without consulting me. And yet, the texts say that I am an honorary member and first member of the Political Bureau with a consultative voice,” argues Robert Kona.
He continues: “how can we understand that since 2020 until today, none of the five deputies and none of the mayors of the party have ever come to see where the founding father lives. This is proof that there is a problem at the head of this party.”
Ordinary Congress of Kribi
Faced with these recriminations, Bienvenu Ndip, one of the five PCRN deputies in the National Assembly, responded with astonishment. “The journalists who covered the extraordinary congress in Ngaoundéré last year saw that we were all on good terms. A commission was even set up to make donations to the founding fathers. This commission must return its copy next month to Kribi during the first ordinary congress of the party,” indicates the deputy.
He does not exclude manipulations to hinder the progress of the PCRN: “we are in a logic of conquest of power and for that we must not exclude maneuvers which aim to divert us from our objective which is the presidential election of 2025 ".
A hypothesis which is also shared by a close advisor to Cabral Libii. Who also thinks that we must remain focused on the first ordinary congress which will be held in the town of Kribi from December 15 to 17. He also points to the argument invoked by Robert Kona to try to oust Cabral Libii and regain the leadership chair.
Indeed, as we can read in a document widely shared on social networks, Robert Kona asks the civil judge to annul the resolutions of the Guidiguis congress, in the Far North region, which was held on May 11, 2019 under the pretext that it was just a simple meeting. “The proof: we were only 11 people, the quorum for a congress was far from being reached,” explains Robert Kona. It was during this work that Cabral Libii took the reins of the party. The calculation of this founding father is simple: if these resolutions are annulled, Cabral Libii is dismissed and he takes over the presidency of the party.
Cabral Libii's advisor contacted by SBBC brushes aside Robert Kona's argument: . He recalls that Robert Kona had 90 days after the publication of this act by the Ministry of Territorial Administration (Minat) for a prior gracious appeal while indicating to the Minat the provisions of the law violated. What was not done…
In any case, if we are to believe Robert Kona, the first hearing in this case has been set for January 4. The co-founder of the PCRN hopes that a representative of MP Cabral Libii will be in the room that day. “We have a college of lawyers,” says Bienvenu Ndip.
