Anglophone Crisis: PCC denies reports of Moderator Fonki’s summons
The Synod, which is highest body of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, has debunked allegations; the Moderator Rt. Rev Fonki Samuel has been summoned to appear before a Court in Buea concerning the Anglophone crisis. The Communication Secretary of the PCC, Rev Mokoko Mbue Thomas said it was only a rumor and told reporters that to the best of his knowledge the PPC Moderator is not wanted by any judicial body.
The rumor alleged that his summon was even read in some PCC churches in the North West region. In March this year it was rumored that the PCC Moderator had declared a blank academic year in all Presbyterian schools. But this was later disclaimed by the Communication service on March 14 on the official website of the PCC.
Rumor of this summon even went as far as alleging that even the President of Cameroon Baptist Convention, CBC and Catholic Bishops of the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province were all asked to appear before a Court in Buea in a date not yet announced.
Prime Minister Philemon Yang after his visit to the North West region said Government will work with Clergymen to determine when schools will reopen. The PCC has 22 Secondary schools, 233 Primary and Nursery schools with 640 and 980 teachers respectively. All these schools have remained closed since the strike action began.
