The Council of Protestant Churches, meeting at its General Assembly from 2 to 7 May 2017, addressed the Anglophone Crisis.
The issue of the Anglophone crisis has just been studied by the Council of Protestant Churches of Cameroon (Cepca). The meeting, which was held from 2 to 7 May 2017 in the framework of its General Assembly, addressed the problems that undermine unity and peace in Cameroon. The newspaper Le Jour, on 8 May 2017, which speaks of this information, reports that the Cepca condemns all forms of violence likely to affect national unity. She therefore called on the Government to give priority to approaches to the peaceful resolution of conflicts. She wants the regime to pay a lot of attention to the anglophone crisis. Moreover, She adopts an approach of fraternal dialogue that can contribute to the resumption of classes in the English-speaking Regions.
As another request to the Government, Cepca wants the legal proceedings to be legal and conducted with diligence in order to alleviate the concerns. “The anglophone crisis inspired the choice of the theme of our 46th General Assembly which was What citizenship for peace in Cameroon? “Said Reverend Jonas Kemogné, Secretary General of the Cepca. The newspaper points out that the Protestant churches in Cameroon say they are frustrated by church leaders who have been brought to justice for matters that have nothing to do with the religious. “We criticize this situation. We ask the State to take a particular look at the situation of all those arrested in the English-speaking area. That procedures be legal and accelerated to avoid tensions, “said Rev. Jonas Kemoge.
Therefore the Cepca demands the end of ghost towns. She said to have set up a Protestant observatory. The role will be to analyze the concrete situations of Cameroon likely to create conflicts.
