Politics : Citizens Of Two English Speaking Region In Bondage.

State Still Figuring Out Ways End The Conflict.

The socio – political crisis that commenced in the two English speaking Regions since 2016 has caused a lot of pains, untold sufferings, hardship and the lost of many lives. At the beginning of the Anglophone problem, many were of the opinion that, it will not last for long. Today in  2021 almost fives years into the conflict, kidnapping, killing, rapping of women and blocking of roads  are still the order of the day.

All hopes of seeing the crisis come to an end has been dashed to the mire as those of the North West and South West Regions are tormented daily. On Monday, the 9th of August 2021, in Mamfe Manyu Division, some unidentified gun men stormed the town and kidnapped some inhabitants asking for ransom before they could be set free.

As if the atrocity on Monday has not caused enough pains to the people, two days after, a man was shot by gun men. Fortunately for him, he did not give up the ghost. Thanks to the immediate intervention of people, he was rushed to the Buea Regional hospital for treatment.

It is high time; the government of Cameroon re-visits what the Right Honorable Patricia Scotland the Secretary General (SG) of Common Wealth said during her visit to the country on the 22nd December 2017. The Secretary General of Common Wealth stated clearly “I have called on all the interlocutors to think and see how the dialogue will take place. One of the wonderful thing is a Cameroonian dialogue. It is for the people of Cameroon to decide the shape, the content and who should participate.”

If the state authorities had followed the advice of the Right Honorable Patricia Scotland in 2017, this conflict would not have reached this level. All the determination expressed by the Common Wealth SG to help the country regain peace was dashed into the mire.
