Anglophone Crisis: Another Francophone surrogate expected in Bamenda today
The President of the National Communication Council, NCC Peter Essoka has announced that he will be in Bamenda today Thursday January 12, 2017.
Information on the Francophone surrogate’s trip to Bamenda was made public by a Douala based radio, Equinoxe. It was revealed that Mr Essoka intends to meet with news reporters in the city to discuss coverage of the ongoing Anglophone crisis and how media men and women can cover the happenings without creating social unrest or sell hate speech.
Cameroun Info.Net reported that Peter Esoka’s visit comes on the heels of the closure of community radio station in Bamenda known as Hot Cocoa Radio FM 94.0 by a Francophone senior divisional officer. The SDO claimed that the local radio was broadcasting information to incite violence.
The agent of French colonization reportedly targeted an interactive program called the ‘Biggest Breakfast Show’. According to Equinoxe radio, the North West Regional Delegate for Communication, who is also another Francophone by name, Dr Louis Marie Megne, observed that only Pater Essoka can decide whether or not Hot Cocoa should remain closed for the time being.
