The arrest of the supposed leaders of the Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, the deliberate grounding of Internet services in the Anglophone regions, the ban on the Civil society Consortium and the heavy presence of combat ready uniform persons are merely expected speed brakes that gives time for better reflections and restrategizing for a “no turning back advancement,” the Synod Clerk of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon recently stated.
The Man of God added that “To deprive the entire Anglophone regions of Internet services is a subtle acknowledgement that the entire people are a problem. This is to say the Civil Society Consortium is not a group. It is the people! Anglophones in government who do not see this as an affront to who they are as a people, have sold their birthrights irredeemably! This shouldn’t be!…”
His voice comes at a time when the Francophone regime has bullied the Roman Catholic Bishops to submission. The Bishops of Cameroon recently met in Mamfe, the chief town in Manyu and were divided over the Anglophone problem. No statement on the killings and militarization of the Anglophone territories came out of the Cameroon Bishops Conference that held in Mamfe.
