British parliamentarians were shocked and some reduced to tears yesterday evening as they listened in silence to the horror committed in British Southern Cameroons by troops loyal to the Biya regime. In a rare diplomatic push of the Southern Cameroons case, the House of Commons hosted prominent Southern Cameroon elites based in the UK in Committee Room 10.
Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that Professor Nelson Enonchong presented a brilliant submission on Cameroon’s Constitutional and Legal Background. Another speaker was Professor Priscilla Nkenti who elaborated on the current unrest in Cameroon and highlighted the immediate causes and consequences.
Cameroon’s Acting High Commissioner to the UK, Joel Herve Nguenkam spoke of the measures by the Biya Francophone government to resolve the problems. The British MPs were visibly moved and praised the cream of Southern Cameroons academics for the initiative and the Southern Cameroonians for their bravery and the resistance. The House of Common is expected to hold a debate on the Anglophone problem soonest.
