CAMEROONIANS thought something was up when they noticed that their president, Paul Biya, 61, had dyed his grey hair black and covered his bald patch with a toupee. They reckoned they knew why when police seized all copies of a newspaper in Yaounde, which had published a picture of a 24-year-old woman on its front page. Then its editor was threatened with death - and they knew for certain that President Biya, a widower, had married again. But officially it is still a state secret.
