“I urge the Presidency of the Republic and all the constitutional actors in the Republic of Cameroon to open a new phase of peaceful dialogue with the political opposition and minority groups with the view of bringing about democratic renewal for the benefit of all peoples, communities and individuals living in Cameroon.
Addressing the press, Tchiroma said, “ the diaspora is fighting a lost battle and no country in the world will give them an open support…. Our unity is an obstacle to war in Cameroon.. Cameroon is a country proud of its history and people. We will not encourage her to undermine her sovereignty or independence”.
The CNSF party chairman said, the “ EU parliament’s intention is to distabilise Cameroon through the false accusations. Our party extorts all Cameroonians to ignore the blackmail”. He describes Cameroon as an island of integrity where the rule of law thrives.
Banking on that, we do recollect, however vaguely, that the Anglophones marched on September 22, 2017, with ‘olive’ branches without anyone bearing the most rudimentary weapon but for one or two very elderly women with walking sticks – the third legs for support in the third age. We did watch on television how it all went peacefully all through.
On their way home in the evening, however, were the peaceful marchers attacked unprovoked, with fatalities resulting. We hold a report by the Catholic bishops of the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province to the effect that some of the said unarmed peaceful marchers were massacred by bullets fired from helicopter gunships.
Observers of MRC’s agitations against the Biya regime infer that, the inscription of ‘CAN 2019’ on the jerseys had some links with the abortive 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) campaign. The MRC has in its protests been clamouring for investigations and explanation into what happened that Cameroon failed to host the tournament.
As the heat from the international community continues, government communications are gradually becoming inconsistent. Last year, then Communication Minister, IssaTchiroma Bakary rejected claims by international community of military’s excesses in the North including the murder of some women and their children.
Sadi presents Cameroon as an independent state that will not tolerate external influence on its internal affairs. He asserted that, the disarmament commission is already in the process of reintegrating ex-separatists’ fighters to normal lives.
He argued that “ French and English are Cameroon’s two official languages of Equal value . French and English speakers go about their business throughout the country very well.. Cameroonian problems should be resolved in Cameroon by Cameroonians”.
Shortly after that lecture, the separatists’ went wild threatening to arrest the politician. According to the activists’ Kah Walla’s declaration accusing the diaspora of lies telling and manipulation from the beginning of the current crisis till now is a ‘sin’ that shall not go unpunished’.
The separatists’ lords say they would get hold of the female politician when she sets food on the North West and South West regions.
Reacting to the fuss over her outing in the US, Kah Walla released an audio message detailing developments in the last few days. She said most of the separatists’ have called and issued threats to life on her.
He averred that, the contrary happened when the crisis touched the fabric of major parts of the two English-speaking Regions. Mbile said the fact that, French-speaking Cameroonians welcomed their brethren from the restive zones shows that integration and living together has gone beyond mere propaganda.
In the tweet, the president urged Cameroonians to work on a united front for everyone’s greatness and prosperity. The tweet which is not associated to any event is not unconnected to the current pressures facing the country top among which is the Anglophone crisis shaking the very foundation of the country’s unity and form of state.
“ The Senate of the republic of Cameroon which stands proud of its good cooperation ties with the European Parliament, and overall, that of the state of Cameroon with all the institutions of the European Union shall be delighted to host a delegation of European MPS in its country, so the latter make their own opinion on the socio-political and security situation of Cameroon”. Niat wrote.
At the end of the day, the EU parliament could only condemn the atrocities committed by both government forces and armed separatists as well as call for ceasefire and dialogue.
Defending her country’s position, Hon Dominique Bilde of Rassemblement National and Member of the EU parliament praised the Biya regime for its fight against Boko Haram adding that the hospitality of the regime has ensured that thousands of Nigerian refugees are being hosted in Cameroon.
In that interview, the minister had condemned acts of destruction on Cameroon’s diplomatic services in Berlin and Paris. Then minister Sadi said, the MRC had crossed the threshold of tolerable political practices. Sadi had maintained that, the MRC leaders are facing the law courts for matters related to the January 26th protests which administrators did not authorise
