La communauté anglophone propose des voies de sortie de crise

APAnews | Le président de la Commission nationale pour la promotion du bilinguisme et du multiculturalisme (CNPBM) du Cameroun, Peter Mafany Musongue a résumé, mardi, les principales recommandations de la communauté anglophone en vue de la sortie de la crise qui, depuis octobre 2016 et sur fond de menaces sécessionnistes, secoue les régions du Nord-Ouest et du Sud-Ouest.

Revenant d’une mission d’écoute, effectuée du 30 mai au 1er juin dans le chaudron du Nord-Ouest à Bamenda, il a égrené dans un communiqué dont AAP a obtenu une copie un chapelet de griefs et doléances à l’endroit du gouvernement.

Selon le texte, la communauté anglophone souhaite notamment la création de conditions favorables au retour des réfugiés internes dans leurs localités respectives, l’ouverture d’un débat sur les problèmes relatifs à l’institution du fédéralisme, la recherche urgente de solutions aux problèmes de fond posés par les protestataires, l’initiation d’un dialogue franc, sincère et inclusif avec les Anglophones, y compris ceux de la diaspora en vue de solutions durables.

Les interlocuteurs de l’ex-Premier ministre ont demandé aux pouvoirs publics «de se pencher sur la gestion des enseignants, qui sont coincés entre leur hiérarchie et les groupes armés», d’accélérer la réalisation des infrastructures dans la zone, l’abrogation de la loi sur le terrorisme, l’amnistie générale en faveur des personnes emprisonnées ou en exil du fait de la crise, de ramener au pays ceux qui vivent en clandestinité, de même que les réfugiés se trouvant au Nigeria, de permettre l’instauration de la double nationalité.

Dans le même ordre d’idées, les sociétés et établissements publics doivent mener leurs activités dans les deux langues officielles que sont l’anglais et le français, en même qu’il faut «revoir la manière de présenter l’histoire du Cameroun» et ramener, dans son pays natal, la dépouille du premier président camerounais, Ahmadou Ahidjo, décédé le 30 novembre 1989 et enterré à Dakar (Sénégal).

Dans le compte rendu qu’il fait de ses échanges à Bamenda, Peter Mafany Musongue ne cache pas un réel malaise ainsi qu’une profonde frustration de ses interlocuteurs du fait, entre autres, du sentiment d’être mal aimés des francophones, de leur marginalisation dans la marche des affaires de l’État, de l’absence d’égalité des chances dans l’accès aux emplois publics, de l’absence d’infrastructure et d’industries dans le Nord-Ouest et le Sud-Ouest.

Les anglophones se plaignent aussi du chômage des jeunes diplômés, de la corruption, du tribalisme et du népotisme, ou encore des exactions subies de la part de groupes armés non identifiés, ou encore de «l’arrogance dans la gestion de la crise» par le gouvernement.

Créée le 23 janvier 2017 par décret présidentiel, la CNPBM est un organe consultatif chargé d’œuvrer pour la promotion du bilinguisme et du multiculturalisme dans l’optique de maintenir la paix, consolider l’unité du pays, renforcer la volonté et la pratique quotidienne du vivre ensemble de ses populations.

  1. UNSTOPPABLE MOMENTUM. LRC has realised she can NEVER win the war. She has started talking about FEDERATION.

    A Federation involves a change of the FORM OF THE STATE. Dictator Biya swore that the Form of the state is a NO-GO-AREA.
    Shame on him if he accepts to change the Form of the state

    THE WAR CONTINUES….

    • It’s a proposition nyamfuka it’s not a war you are very stupid .

      • Mankind Matoh Pikin

        Mr Bamenda boy you are dreaming.The American Congress will discuss Cameroon on June 7th.One thing you diehard supporters of dictator Biya fail to know is that you cannot defeat the world.Your evil deeds have been exposed .Thanks to God.

    • The form of the state is not negotiable with ambazonia member. I don’t understand why you are calling yourself a winner raccoon

      • I hope that as this fool opens is smelly mouth and talk nonsense here, he understands that tomorrow always have another story. Since you are so naive and short sighted like your empty headed brothers in Mvomeka, do not change you name on this forum or run away when reality sets in. Fool

  2. its not about who won . Its about changing cameroon for the good of all cameroonians..I dont understand why people like this strange guy who was once prime minister accept to gead such a toothless commission to divert peoples attention..The problems of the people of the NWP and SWP had nothing to do with bilingualism and multi-culturalism..We took a pretentious strategy and today we are caught up in our dream world-
    The military thought they will go in , brutalize the people, restore peace through reign of terror but failed..
    The fake gangsters from yaounde brought money to buy people but they failed..
    I am proud we have young and good freedom fighters willing to take cameroon out of misery..
    These are the true heroes fighting to clean a dirty country of 35 years of Biyas criminality

  3. What is”Anglophone”?????

    • A specie of dogs, who must be treated with disdain: raped, killed, deprived,
      scorned, good for nothing other than being left to stay in the forest etc etc.
      And to get this going, lies must be told about them at all times.

    • Epée Dipanda

      Does it matter?
      I thought there was no anglophone problem?
      Ambazonia must be free un point c’est tout!

    • Anglophones are the Jews of Cameroon.The chosen people of God.They are hated by Cameroon Francophones; killed and jailed incommunicado .These great people joined La Republique du Cameroon in 1961 to Form the Federal Republic of Cameroon.LRC later used crooked means to change the constitution and the name of the country.

  4. Joshua bro you brought tears to my eyes.

    • Sorry brother, that is man`s inhumanity to man. Everyone, should be wrong
      to think that the `education of the heart is the heart of education`. But man
      oh man.

  5. Blacks in America fought slavery from 1619 to 1865, 246yrs before about 3millions Black slaves became free.
    Black South Africans fought apartheid from 1948 to 1990/1994, 45yrs before they could have some form of freedom.
    Black West Cameroonians have being fighting discrimination, marginalization, annexation, forced francophonization, second class citizenship aka Anglophones apartheid for the last 57yrs since 1961 and we know the fight will continue until our we live free with dignity on the land of their ancestors.
    Bilingualism has never been our problem.
    Right to self rule has nothing to do with bilingualism.
    Our children know our history now more than ever.
    The lie is out, one and indivisible death trap.
    Who is fooling who?

  6. more decentralization it’s better for Cameroon

    • What is decentralization?

    • “More decentralization”? Says the fool son of idiots that want to continue running the country down. Such fools cannot even articulate what decentralization means.

  7. Many are wondering why the return of Ahidjo’s corpse was included in the list of demands. As an expert in the anglophone problem, let me explain: we want ahidjo’s corpse so we can tie it to tree and beat the crap out it for scamming our forefathers lol

    • @ Kirikou
      No sir. I like your sense of humor but the answer lies elsewhere. It is one of the ruses adopted by the majority to reach a DO NOTHING decision. Any time an Anglophone problem comes up for debate, simply bring up a Francophone problem or create one and say, ” Aha, you see, we all have the same problem also”. And so the Anglophone problem is filed and put away. Neat right?

      • @ John Dinga as weh you like him sense of humor so, na weti make you respond to him like say your head no correct? The usuall response to humor is laughter especially when one appreciates it. No be so?

  8. Hmm,something has been nimbling away at my mind as I`m lost in thought as to why the anglophones are the ones doing the crying,weeping and at the same time wracking heir minds to come up with solutions to their grievances.When it came to the stick approach, the Elokobis, Nji’s, were called in, now that it has come to the carrots’ approach, the Musonge’s are doing the heavy lifting. May I ask where the francophones are and what is their approach to this crisis? All what we have heard from them so far are threats of violence and the refusal to negotiate with “terrorists” Measures,suggestions, directives, should be coming from francophones, starting with their supreme leader after a long silence. Isn’t it strange that ‘terrorists” also have ideas for peace?

    • How many Francos do you know apart from the ones in this forum, China man?

      People of ur likes have transformed our legit struggle into a genocidal adventure, yet you wonder why nobody is willing to associate with you in the West.

      Even assuming things go ur way, u think pple would just fold their arms and watch u in Buea unpack the racks in ur luggage and clap hands for u?

      Even dogs are more intelligent than that…

      • Bami rabid dog, are you even a Francophone? You are a demon other francophones cast away, and you scampered to Bamenda to become a nobody hybrid!

        • And exactly those ur so-called hybrids stand a better chance to make you see your own defecation in your face. Else you would stagnate in ur muddy pool and enjoy its muddiness without ever knowing that there’s water that isn’t muddy at all. Same with Bamis, Betis, Bassas, Fulanis, all Francos, they’re all showing you ur defecation in the face…stretch that oblong head out of the box and think. Group mentality, njangui mentality, mbuh house mentality, is good but there comes a time when even njangui house scatters, proper.

          Bakassians are watching, so do others including Oyibos. Trokies are all over, make no mistake.

          Stop fooling the ignorant masses and let’s face our collective Daemons, only so can we emerge as a folk full of intellectuals…

        • Yup,all those other francos cast your sorry ass out, and you sneaked to our backyard. Now that we have nurtured back to the two-head snake you are, you some how think you can bandy words with us. It’s not working,that’s why you are whining and barking your homosexual self to sleep everyday. You are an emotional wreck who quarrels and pretends to know people online. You played the Boko Haram card and fell on your own sword.You asked for the Bir to kill anglophones and you have been struggling since to make these word disappear to no avail. Live with it!You knew how to face “our” collective demons by asking for anglophones to be murdered!Eternal refugee!20 years of self exile can break even the strongest of men!

  9. CPDM is not are political party.They are a fraternity,a brotherhood,with a natural candidate.SCNC have decoded them.When SC came into this union,we told them that we want to stay in German Cameroon,but in a federation.What did they do?they blatantly violated the constitution anf change the form of the state and called the day they violated that constitution,”national unity”.Today,the same CPDM that changed the form of the state that they were not suppose to, is telling SCnians that they cannot have a debate on the form of the state.
    Come to think of it,was it not the west that make Biya president in 1982? why is it that the same west,that put Biya in power are now asking him to step down and francophones are cryiny fowl?

  10. Just come to think of it! Francophones have been shouting for all “ terrorists “ to be killed, then strangely enough when an idea like the repatriation of Ahidjo’s corpse comes up as a result of anglophone resistance, they sheepishly debate themselves to sleep about the advantages and disadvantages of such a move! They claim all parts of the country have the same problems, so why not talk out about the difficulties? Now you are waiting for a federation, for Ahidjo’s corpse and many other goodies from Anglophones.!

  11. Cameroonians of SW and NW origin often give a lot of credit to their colonial British; OK but they must not downplay their own natural qualities. The “Indirect Rule” of the British took advantage of these preexisting qualities in the people to administer them through their existing value systems already in place. Entities like courtesy, honesty, politeness, were part and parcel of that culture which the colonialists respected and kept intact.
    Southern Cameroonians were brought up to ask questions wherever there were doubts. This enhanced understanding and promoted social harmony in living together.
    Today’s arrogance in public places is an alien culture. Shouting at others is alien. Incendiary language is alien. To arrest a citizen from one jurisdiction and transfer to another for

    • purposes of litigation is very alien.
      If “Vivre Ensemble” were to have any meaning, should radio and television personalities like Mancho Bibixy or Fon Echicke not be treated with as much indulgence as their colleague Ernest Obama, n’est-ce pas?

  12. I am from Fako/Meme/Ndian. I am very embarrassed to see a man who hails from my village so called ancien premier ministre de l’etat des groumands du cameroun twisted the message the Goodwill people of Southern Cameroon he held in Bamenda. I am truly ashamed on behalf of him for the fact that he is from my area Mr Musunge Mafany, Convey the right message the people gave you word by word. Southern Cameroon will not accept anything other than a sovereign and independent state.That was the message. Don’t be afraid to tell PREACH ALL USELESS ANSWER BAMENDA IS YOUR ANSWER.(PAUL BIYA).
