Southern Cameroonians from all walks of life are preparing for a massive ghost town operation on the 11th of February 2017 beginning Friday marking the end of marginalization of the territory by Francophone political elites. The interim leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium have announced that the strike action will continue and all academic establishments in West Cameroon shall remain closed until all Anglophone demands are met including the immediate release of all detainees.
The interim leaders have condemned the Catholic Education Secretary for the Buea Diocese for making public anti Consortium press releases. Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that the said Rev. Father Sob who hails from La Republique du Cameroun recently met with the Francophone governor of the South West region before issuing a communiqué for Roman Catholic institutions to resume classes.
The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium say the decision to reopen schools in Southern Cameroons is presently not on the agenda. Each year, millions of Southern Cameroons children and political elites take part in celebrations to commemorate what La Republique du Cameroon named as Youth Day. This time around, the interim leaders of the Consortium have opined that the 11th of February event will no longer take place in West Cameroon.
The Consortium also noted that the decision to stage the greatest civil disobedience ever on the 11th of February is to put an end to the monarchical rule of the French-backed Francophone dictator in Southern Cameroons. Previously, the nationwide 11th February Southern Cameroons manifestation was designed to demonstrate West Cameroonians allegiance to the United Republic of Cameroon.
