Peace and reconciliation is far from the agenda of both rivals who feed from the same political pot as they use every available opportunity to trade blows at each other.

Limbe this time around was the scene for their show at the weekend during the celebrations of festivities marking the CPDM’s 33rd anniversary as well as the senatorial elections.

During CPDM anniversary celebrations,Mbella Moki, former Mayor of the Buea council and Senator for that constituency thanked the party for placing faith in him to seek re-election into the Senate

He however did not miss the opportunity to aim a sly dig at his successor at the council and long time rival Ekema Patrick whom he told had no other choice than to vote for him as the party’s senator in that constituency

Mayor Ekema Patrick did not wait long before firing a reply as he slushed his opponent back immediately after voting for the senatorial the next day

« It will be very stupid for somebody (Mbella Moki) to pride himself that Ekema Patrick came to Limbe to vote for him, »the Mayor fired back

« I came to endore the list which was veted by the National Chairman of the party. It is ridiculous to see a senator given a microphone on addressing fellow militants and dignitaries and you arrange for thugs to lift you up.

« A chain of derogatory statements…I can’t vote for such an idiot but personally I have voted for the list which the Head of State endorsed. If it were Mbella(Moki), you know I won’t vote for him. He shouldn’t pride with my vote, » Ekema Patrick lashed out.

Both men have been involved in a war of words ever since Ekema Patrick replaced Mbella Moki as Mayor of the Buea Council.

Senator Charles Mbella Moki some time last year called on the GCE Board to investigate thoroughly into allegations of Mayor Ekema’s doubtful results at the GCE.
