Out of the chamber of death: conversation with Patrice Nganang

Patrice Nganang, writer and human rights activistIn some countries leaders manage to hang on to power. But sooner or later these people may leave the political stage.  Uncle Bob stepped down in Zimbabwe. Uncle Zuma stepped down in South Africa. president of Cameroon is uncle Biya, who has forgotten that there is a life outside the presidential throne.  

One of the people who notice the power of Paul Biya is the writer Patrice Nganang. Recently he was hosted by the government of Biya, he was invited (with due pressure) to spend some time in a very small room. 

In this interview he talks about the political situation of his country and his role in it.
