The National Executive Committee of the Social Democratic Front met last Saturday in Bamenda with its chairman, John Fru Ndi. The SDF during this committee made decisions and made strong statements.
Regarding the fight against terrorism which continues to make victims in the Far North of Cameroon, the SDF carries a rather strong accusation on the regime. The party notes that “Biya’s regime regularly negotiates with known terrorists of the Boko haram sect, disbursing large sums for the release of hostages while the civil society members with whom its regime was negotiating and should be maintaining the dialogue have been removed, deported and locked up in Yaoundé and are accused of terrorism “.
Speaking of the Anglophone crisis, the SDF notes that “Mr. Biya’s regime is waging an undeclared war against the citizens of the Northwest and South-West Regions“. As a result, the party of Ni John Fru Ndi “condemns with the strongest terms, the proceedings brought by the forces of darkness fully controlled by the regime of Mr. Biya, against the Christian religious authorities in the regions of the Northwest And the Southwest, “said the final communiqué.
In the same vein, the Balance Party announces the setting up of a special commission to report exhaustively on the killings and human rights violations in the Northwest and Southwest Regions since the beginning of the so-called anglophone crisis.
As a reminder, the SDF did not participate in the parade of 20 May, arguing that the regime in place can not resolve the English crisis. The D.O of the Mbanga subdivision obliged an SDF municipal councilor from the commune of Mbanga to participate in the parade and the party through its National Secretary for Human Rights applied a declaration of non-acceptance.
The congress of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) is announced next October. It is at the end of this one that should be known the name of the candidate invested to run for a presidential mandate during the elections of 2018. A first congress programmed last April had been the subject of a postponement.
