Cameroon – Anglophone crisis: the UN relieved after the return of the internet

Written by Deckson N.

These parts of the country were weaned from electronic telecommunications for 93 days following federalist and even secessionist demands.

In a statement issued Friday, Fall stressed that this measure by President Paul Biya was in line with those recently announced by the government to meet the corporatist demands of Anglophone teachers and lawyers. For Louncény Fall, such a measure is “likely to bring down tension and create the conditions for an exit from the crisis in the regions concerned“.

He also urged the Government of Cameroon to continue to press for appeasement and dialogue, to take all other appropriate measures for a rapid and lasting resolution of the crisis in order to strengthen the foundations of unity, stability and the prosperity of the country.

François Louncény Fall took the opportunity to express the wish that the Cameroonians maintain their patriotic spirit by showing restraint in the management of the current situation, including avoiding to use the Internet to incite hatred or violence. A week ago, the head of UNOCA had described as a “deplorable situation” the cut of the Internet network in the English-speaking area.
