Cavaye Yéguié Djibril initially denounced the attitude of the SDF (Social Democratic Front) MPs who took part in marches in Bamenda and Buea this week.
“Cameroon does not govern itself on the street. The tri-colored scarf we wear is an attribute of solemnity which gives us the honor and immunity of which we are invested. This scarf should not be dragged into the street. It must be respected and protected, “he hammered before pursuing the angry dissatisfaction of the English-speaking Regions:” I condemn with the utmost energy any desire for partition of Cameroon. I condemn with the same energy such acts as that of the firing of the flag of the Republic. Let us defend, let us manifest, but do not burn the symbols of the State. “
His counterpart the President of the Senate followed him the same day. Marcel Niat Njifenji condemns the violence and points people hidden in the shadows. “The Senate by my voice condemns with the utmost energy the behavior of this horde of antipatriots who, manipulated by irresponsible people and despicable designs, assault peaceful compatriots, destroy infrastructures acquired at the cost of enormous sacrifices. And, at the height of the unacceptable, burn the national flag symbol of the State “.
Other reactions this time from the opposition parties were recorded. Garga Haman Adji, the president of the Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD), calls for unity in respect of the diversity of Cameroon.
“This is a very compromising situation, I believe, which stems from a number of misunderstandings on the basis of a number of analyzes of political and sociological situations in our country. We must not seek our differences. Let us see what is feasible, what is possible. We must make an effort to stay together. And nowhere in Africa will we be ourselves alone except in a family or in a small town, “declared the former minister of Paul Biya.
As for the MP Patricia Tomaino Ndam Njoya, she calls for the opening of a frank dialogue, the only way for her to solve the English-speaking problem. “There were crises like that in 1991 in Cameroon and the Cameroonians sat down to really pose the problems and provide solutions. That’s what we’re asking for Bamenda. That is, dialogue is open, hopefully, but we must go to the bottom to make it sustainable. “
