Cameroon – Joseph Wirba: SDF MP welcomed in triumph in Jakiri

Written by Deckson N.

The SDF MP, Wirba Joseph, arrived in his hometown after escaping a lifting of his parliamentary immunity Saturday in the National Assembly.

He was received as a hero in Jakiri where he arrived that same Saturday a few hours after a meeting of the Emergency Office of the National Assembly convened by Cavaye Yeguie Djibril, Speaker of the House.

A reliable source had revealed that the main agenda of the convocation was to begin the waiver of Wirba’s immunity so that he could be arrested “for defending the Cameroonians from the English-speaking Regions in the National Assembly” .

Having been missing for about five months, Sdf MP, a political party of the opposition, appeared unexpectedly at the hemicycle of Ngoa-Ekelle on June 21, 2017. He was reported on the run since he had defrayed the chronicle last year at the third and last parliamentary session of the year 2016.

On the rostrum of the National Assembly, in a long speech of about thirty minutes, he denounced the government of Paul Biya which, according to him, marginalizes in its management, the Cameroonians of the English-speaking regions. In the aftermath, he declared his support for activists of the secession of Cameroon.

I am back to continue the fight for the English-speaking regions, which we have started. Nothing is finished. I think that any country that wants to build a dignified future must know its past. And the past is that two peoples have come together. All that we are asking for is therefore a right. Therefore, someone has to stand up and say no. So I came back to continue what I started again. By my return I mean that if the price to pay for speaking on behalf of my people is prison, I am ready for that, “he said in an interview with La Nouvelle Expression last month .
