Cameroon – Middle East abuses on Cameroonians: Government takes measures to limit the phenomenon

Written by Gisele Alba

Asked about the question on Wednesday in the session of oral questions in the Senate, the Minister of External Relations, Lejeune Mbella Mbella, presented the measures taken to limit the drama.

Faced with this alarming and worrying situation, Lejeune Mbella Mbella first reported on the diplomatic arrangements taken by Cameroon, on instructions from the Head of State, towards the countries regularly accused, reported Cameroon Tribune in Kiosk this Friday.

Cameroon has therefore begun negotiations with these countries, first to shed more light on cases of abuse brought to the knowledge of the government. In addition, cases of young victims of atrocious treatment have been regularly taken care of by the government, both for their treatment and for their repatriation to Cameroon, the minister said.

Internally, in collaboration with the General Delegation to the National Security, arrangements are made to limit the travel of young people to these countries. According to Lejeune Mbella Mbella, dozens of young people are systematically turned back from the airport when they do not have a formal employment contract that formally allows them to engage in an activity in a given country. This system, MINREX pointed out, is visibly bearing fruit.

But the government is calling for the involvement of parliamentarians to raise awareness among families. Because they usually leave these parental situations to pursue generous job opportunities in these countries.

Many African women employed as maid servants in countries in the Middle East are treated with no respect for the human condition.

In 2015, Gertrude Megne testified on Radio France Internationale (RFI) saying: “I hope that my testimony will serve as a lesson to all those who respond to the solicitations of strangers who promise them work abroad” . According to this Cameroonian, traffickers sell the girls who are sequestered, abused, malnourished and without any means of return to the country.
