Cameroon murder scandal will expose state fault lines

Wednesday, February 15, 2023


Zogo had recently exposed details of state corruption, citing incriminating documents implicating prominent political figures, government ministers and Jean-Pierre Amougou Belinga, a major media baron with close ties to many high-ranking government officials. Belinga has subsequently been arrested on suspicion of orchestrating the crime.


  • The clan wars around the Biya succession question may intensify.
  • The investigations could boost hawkish government voices on the Anglophone conflict, as many of those investigated favoured negotiations.
  • Zogo’s assassination might prompt a major cabinet shake-up.
