After Gabon Coup, 90-Year-Old Cameroun President Reshuffles Military Commanders
Following the coup in Gabon on Wednesday, August 30, Cameroon President Paul Biya made major changes to the country’s ministry of defence.
Among the posts reshuffled were the delegate to the presidency in charge of defence, air force staff, navy, and the police. He announced the changes on social media platform, X.
Biya aged 90 came to power in a coup d’etat in 1982 and has remained president since he rode to power.
Also, shortly after the Gabon coup, Rwanda’s defence force (RDF) announced on X, the social platform formerly known as Twitter, that President Paul Kagame approved the retirement of 83 senior officers.
