Biya Appoints Anglophone as Governor of Centre Region: How Far Can He Go?



The Anglophone crisis takes another turn following government decree on March 13th, 2017 appointing Naseri Paul Bea, an Anglophone as the governor of the Centre Region- Douala. This decree raised a lot of eyebrows especially from onlookers and observers of the ongoing crisis that has plagued Southern Cameroons for more than five months now.

Mr Naseri Paul Bea was the Senior Divisional Officer of Wouri, Cameroon Journal reported. Amidst the ongoing stalemate in Southern Cameroons, this appointment was viewed by onlookers as a means to mitigate Southern Cameroonians.

Also, on March 14th, 2017 Mr Biya appointed former Prime Minister Peter Mafany Musonge to head National Commission of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism. A commission which was outrightly denied by a majority of Southern Cameroonians because it is in no way a solution to their problems.

Definitely, it shows the government continually wants the people to do it their way. Onlookers, on the other hand, insist on the fact that the government should do it the people’s way, at least that is what true democracy stipulates.

As of the moment of writing, Southern Cameroonians are persisting with their non-violent resistance strategies until the government concurs with their preconditions for dialogue such as releasing all arrested, demilitarising Southern Cameroons, restoration of the internet among others. Recently, the interim leaders of the Anglophone Civil Society Consortium Mark Bareta and Tapang Ivo in a press statement called on the people of Southern Cameroons to observe special ghost days on Thursday, March 23rd and Friday, March 24th respectively. These special ghost days were declared in support of Consortium’s pioneer leaders in detention, who are to be in court on Thursday, the 23rd of March. Friday, March 24th was declared ghost day because the Cameroon People Democratic Movement (CPDM) will be celebrating her anniversary.

Furthermore, to strengthen the resistance, the Consortium published a strategic road map of the struggle which is available via the official website:

Meanwhile, Southern Cameroonians remain enthusiastic until justice is served, until their demands are met and until their Statehood is restored.
