The president of Cameroon's 'Mouvement pour la renaissance du Cameroun' took a letter to Etoudi Palace on 21 December. It was addressed to the head of state. If Maurice Kamto won’t elaborate on the contents of the letter, we will.

A photograph sent political shockwaves everywhere it went. Shared throughout social media, the photo showed Maurice Kamto’s vehicle at one of the entrances to the Etoudi Palace, the seat of the Cameroonian presidency on 21 December.

The Mouvement pour la Renaissance du Cameroun (MRC) leader had arrived at the palace to give a document to President Biya’s security apparatus.
