Cameroon – Anglophone Problem: Maurice Kamto asks Paul Biya to withdraw the army from Bamenda

Written by Deckson N.

The President of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (CRM) spoke during the meeting he held in Ngaoundere on December 10, 2016.

Before his passage on December 13, 2016 on the antennas of the television Canal 2 International, Maurice Kamto made an exit. It was in Ngaoundere on December 10, 2016. The party he heads, the CRM, held a rally attended by the militants of Adamaoua, North and Far North.

Professor Kamto denounced the violence suffered by the students in Buea and those that caused the deaths of demonstrators in Bamenda. “It was not enough that we applied humane and degrading treatment to our children. In Buea, young girls were rolled in mud and forced to drink dirty water. They are shooting at our brothers and sisters in the streets of Bamenda and Buea, “the president of the CRM said in remarks reported by the daily Le Jour.

For him, it would be a mistake to believe that what is happening in Buea and Bamenda is one of the manifestations of the “Anglophone problem“. For him, “this is the problem of all Cameroonians“. Kamto invites the President of the Republic Paul Biya to withdraw the army from these areas. “The military must be withdrawn without delay. That is, the so-called third category forces, since they have nothing to do with them. The presence of these will only accentuate the violence, “he believes.

Maurice Kamto also called on the Head of State of Cameroon to constitute a delegation composed of his representatives, political parties and civil society who will travel to the northwest and southwest to prepare the way To the “real” dialogue that will lead to the resolution of the problem.

And if nothing is done within the deadlines he wants to see, his followers and himself will go up to the front. “I would like to say solemnly that if nothing is done within a reasonable timeframe then we will engage in an international awareness and information campaign on the tragedy that is affecting our people in the northwest and southwest. I can not accept that we lock up some Cameroonians in a corner and that we massacre them in peace, “concludes Maurice Kamto.
