Society: Organizations Meet In Toronto To Resolve Anglophone Crisis

Coalition for Dialogue and Negotiations Spear Head Talks.

Over 30 key Southern Cameroonian Frontline and Civil Society Organizations recently met at Toronto in Canada to figure out ways to solve the ongoing crisis in the North West and South West Regions of the country. Under the canopy of the Coalition for Dialogue and Negotiations (CND), the citizens convened for a leadership retreat to brainstorm on how to get out of the mess.

The Toronto meeting comes up after the Cardinal emeritus Christian Tumi’s efforts to hold the Anglophone General Conference (AGC) to adopt a position statement by the Anglophones on the ongoing socio-political unrest was abortive. The Coalition for Development and Negotiations was born as a result of the ongoing implementation of the Major National Dialogue that took place in Cameroon some years.

The press statement of the CND reveals that the organization has been assigned to construct a negotiation team for the Southern Cameroons. It is mentioned that, after the failure to organized a meeting that will help look for a solution to the armed conflict in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, CND finally succeeded in arranging a zoom meeting that brought the Anglophone leaders together to express their opinions.

The meeting held by the CND to resolve the Anglophone crisis is not the first to be convened. In the year 2018, attempts to hold talks at Swiss failed as it is declared that government did not send representatives.
