After an extremely impressive entry into national politics in 2007, Kah Walla is today recognized as one of Cameroon's political leaders and certainly the most remarkable leader of her generation on the political scene. On October 23, 2010, Kah Walla officially announced her candidacy for the presidential election of 2011.
At 45, this African entrepreneur is internationally recognized for her expertise in management, her understanding of development issues and her strong stance on Africa, its women and youths. She was recognized in 2008 by the World Bank as one of 7 women entrepreneurs in Africa
Over the past 15 years, Walla has developed an African firm which offers consulting services in leadership and management, respecting the highest norms and standards in the international market. STRATEGIES! offers services to multinational firms as well as international development organizations . She is a board member of the World Entrepreneurship Forum www.world-entrepreneurship-forum.com
Political choices oriented by professional experience:
Whether it is economic strategy, decentralization, the inclusion of young people and women in policy design and implementation, the creation of jobs, or the leadership of Cameroon in the Central Africa sub-region; solutions proposed by Walla are clearly inspired by her 25 years of experience in these areas, her worldwide network on issues of development and her fieldwork.
Grassroots, Grassroots, Grassroots! This is Kah Walla’s favorite word. For over 20 years, she has worked with civil society in Cameroon and Africa developing policies and projects at international, national and local levels with farmers, traders, motorbike drivers, persons with disabilities, fishermen, students associations, governments, etc. This is how she translates her vision of a "Cameroon governed with and for the people."
To help the grassroots organize to defend its interests and have a voice in defining and implementing policies at the national level, Kah Walla created Cameroon Ô’Bosso, a citizenship movement whose 11 demands for electoral reform in Cameroon and call for the massive registration of voters on electoral lists are at the heart of political debate.
Well known for her strong stands on issues of transparency and budget management, in the Douala 1 Council http://www.camer.be/index1.php?art=6109&rub=6:1, she also took a clear position in 2008 against the constitutional amendment in favor of the non-limitation of presidential terms of office. Since 2009, she has provided criticism, but also concrete suggestions for repairing the legitimacy and technical ability of the independent electoral commission. www.journalducameroun.com/tag.php?t=kah%2Bwalla
On October 23, 2010, Kah Walla resigned from the Social Democratic Front over differences on the strategic approach to the 2011 elections. She announced her candidacy to the office of President of the Republic of Cameroon and began running a campaign on the slogan « THE TIME IS NOW ! »
