Consortium confirms Civil Disobedience Campaign to begin on Monday, Says MTN, CAMTEL, ORANGE to face economic sanction
Since Tuesday January 17, 2017 the English speaking regions of Cameroon partitioned by the Francophone regime as North West and South West have been cut off from the internet world. Internet connection was shut down late Tuesday shortly after the government arrested the main leaders of the now outlawed Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium.
Businesses have been grounded in both regions. Several Money transfer agencies are unable to operate, banks are inactive and mobile telephone operators who deal with internet have had their businesses closed. The leaders of the Consortium have announced a continuation of the civil disobedience campaign beginning on Monday the 23rd of January. The seat of the Consortium has also been moved to an unnamed European country and Southern Cameroonians have been called to listen to the Consortium.
The ghost town operation starting next week will be staged every Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Schools will remain closed and Anglophone parents have been cautioned not to end their children to school. The Consortium is aware that the Yaoundé regime has ordered Francophone schools in Southern Cameroons to open their doors this coming Monday.
Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that the Consortium considers the Yaounde position as an act of provocation. The interim leaders of the Consortium have announced that they are discussing plans with the Southern Cameroons business community to develop a strategy for a complete and total boycott of CAMTEL, MTN, ORANGE and NEXTTEL.
The shutting down of internet was intended to make communication difficult for locals of these two regions who have been using the internet as fast means of disseminating information to one another. Denizens see this as a failure by these companies to risk their businesses by forgetting the Customer King philosophy and allegedly working with the government.
