Cameroon Presidential elections were they fair?

Cameroon presidential elections took place on the 9th October.
the IFES website is a good starting point for data on the electoral system.
According to AfricaNews the official electoral body has suffered a blow to its credibility.
Allafrica.com reported that the opposition called the vote a 'mess'
Brookings Institution has also voiced doubts
Cameroon Center for Democracy and Human Rights - also has materials on its website discussing the state of democracy in the region.
The Commonwealth - had observers at the election. So they are likely to submit their reports soon. Though at present information is limited to a press release only.
Transparency International Cameroon also has information in French about elections and the state of democracy in the region.
