According to information gathered the shooting on that day left many others wounded who are presently in hospitals in Kumba. The untimely demised of the young girl with a lot of expectation and hopes from the parents have pushed many Cameroonians to wonder aloud the essence of this meaningless war in the Anglophone regions.
The Anglophone crisis that commenced as a simple teachers and lawyers peaceful strike to ask for a better working conditions in the year 2016 that was met with resistance from the security forces in Cameroon, would not have reached this level if the government had looked for a quick solution e teachers and lawyers problems.
In the year 2017, the crisis started getting sour and the Secretary General of Common Wealth, the Right Honorable Patricia Scotland was invited to have a talk with government officials, members of civil society organizations, religious leaders in order to propose a solution. The Common Wealth Secretary General, did not fail to suggest an inclusive and unconditional dialogue as the only solution to the problem. To the greatest dismay of many, her proposal was never taken into consideration. Today, many Cameroonians from both the military or civilians have lost their lives. It is high time the government of Cameroon start looking for a lasting solution to this problem.
