Yaounde (National Times)-The president of Cameroon’s National Assembly Honourable Cavaye Yeguie Djibril has reiterated the country’s stand against any foreign intervention to solve the socio-political challenges of the moment.
Honourable Cavaye echoed the stand, Monday June 10 as the June Session of Parliament rumbled off in Yaounde. The House speaker stated that, no form of foreign intervention in the internal affairs of the country will be tolerated.
He described the observations of foreign organisations and bodies on the situation facing Cameroon as baseless accusations. Cavaye said, rather, the country is ready to collaborate with partners and institution that will help it forge ahead.
Cavaye condemned the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (CRM) party of professor Maurice Kamto and his followers of attempting to transform Cameroon into a country of demonstrators.
The House Speaker saluted the efforts of Prime Minister Chief Dr. Jospeh Dion Ngute in the fresh impetus he has brought as government doubles efforts to arrest the sociopolitical crisis in the North West and South West Regions.
The message of the house speaker is no surprise to observers of the polity. He Had been predicted to align with the stand of the executive on the way forward for the Anglophone crisis. Out of such declaration, the same house of law makers has never dedicated a session to talk about the same problems its claims can be handled internally without foreign intervention.
There have been calls across the globe for the release of Maurice Kamto, his party executives and militants arrested during a January 26ht, 2019 protests. On the Anglophone crisis, national, international civil society organisations have called for a broad based dialogue without preconditions as the only way out.
Debates have been staged in the American House of Representatives, British House of Commons, the German parliament and European Union parliament on the Anglophone crisis yet such has not happened in Cameroon.
Just last week, Refugees International released a report staging that, Government’s denial of the severity of the Anglophone crisis was deterring donors.
Days after, Territorial Administration Minister Paul Nji Atanga told the press in Buea shortly after installing Regional teams to coordinate humanitarian aid that, International organisations cannot cry more than the bereave. Atanga holds that, such a posture makes the organisation’s interest suspicious.
A war of figures on the real situation on the ground rages on between Government and NGOs. Humanitarian organisations maintained that, 1.3 million people need aide across the restive North West and South West Regions.
A similar posture is expected from the Cameroon senate at the solemn opening of its June session which begins at 4PM.
Contrary to such political rhetoric, separatists’ leaders and conflict experts insist that, the Anglophone crisis can only be resolved in the presence of a third party. Experts aver that, the level of mistrust between Government and separatists movements needs a third party to repair for talks to be engaged to bring peace.
