The chairman of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement has slammed the Biya regime for use of brute force, unlawful arrest, intimidation, extortion and gross violation of human rights in the North West and South West regions over the past five months. Maurice Kamto believes that the legitimate grievances of anglophone teachers and lawyers took a dramatic political twist because of government ‘s intransigence purging out years of frustration under the weight of a dominant French speaking ruling class.




The firebrand politician and legal practitioner has condemned vices meted on anglophones insisting that, “…there is nothing that prevents us from talking about the form of the state. The attitude of the Biya regime is undemocratic and proves that the ruling class doesn’t care about the demands of the masses.”

He criticized the international community for its “silence” as the government continues with unlawful arrest and intimidation of anglophones. “Neither the Secretary General of the UN, the Human rights Commissioner or the UN Security Council have made statement on the plight of the people of North West and South West regions.” He slammed the hypocrisy of the diplomatic community in the country who have sealed their lips in the face of injustice. “How can the IMF and World Bank propose solutions to the economic stalemate in the country without mentioning the reinstatement of the Internet in the anglophone Regions, a vector of economic growth? The international Community will take the blame for any chaos in the country.” He cried out.

The vocal critic reveals that there are plans by the government “black cabal” to take him off the political scene “by every means” for sympathizing with anglophones. These black cabinet in the midst of government is working tirelessly to nail him for terrorism and secession so he won’t be part of the 2018 Presidential polls. He confirmed rumors that he and Akere Muna were enlisted to be questioned for trumped up charges. But his name was removed by the Presidency in order not to draw the attention of the international community, making them believe the crisis is purely an anglophone plot against the ruling establishment.




The cries of anglophones will not go in vain, he spat out. He is calling on the Biya regime to be open to frank dialogue and the international community to stop their hypocrisy and call President Paul Biya to the unconditional respect of human rights.

Reacting to the recent moves by Biya to solve the issues of Common Law Lawyers, Kamto says it is a clear demonstration that the Head of state is surrounded by bad advisers, people who came out to say there was no anglophone problem when the crisis broke out and made unpatriotic statements against the anglophone community.

The former Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Justice is one of the leading figures in the over 150 lawyers defending the outlawed Consortium leaders and anglophone youths arbitrarily arrested in the North West and South West regions.
