Cameroon’s long-serving president Paul Biya, has been elected for a seventh term.
This development comes two full weeks after Cameroon conducted her presidential elections on Oct. 7. Biya,
The 85 year old Biya, was declared winner with 71% of the vote and will serve another seven-year term in office.
