The so-called Francophone government spokesman, Issa Tchiroma Bakary has criticised non governmental organisations specialised in the defence of human rights, about the killings of 4 gendarmes in Southern Cameroons. Tchiroma tweeted French Cameroun government worries and questioned the “silence of the lamb” by the NGOs.
“The government is astonished at the silence of human rights NGOs in the face of violence against our defence and security forces, and we are taking our nation to witness this silence, which is curious and deafening,” Issa Tchiroma wrote in a tweet that ends with the #Cameroon hashtag.
According to the controversial French Cameroun Minister of Communication, Yaounde feels that European NGOs and their African representatives are supporting Southern Cameroons militants and the partition of Cameroon.
In recent weeks, Yaoundé has criticized reports made by the NGOs in the context of violence in Southern Cameroons that resulted in the death of several people.
As a reminder, at least 4 gendarmes were killed – including a soldier within 48 hours by armed men.
