Cameroon: Unknown civil society groups hold rally in support of the army in Yaounde

Several associations from the Cameroon civil society mobilized yesterday in Yaoundé and paid tribute to the Cameroon military engaged in the war on terror against the Nigerian Islamist sect Boko Haram in the Far North region and criminal gangs in the east of the country. Cameroon Concord gathered that the match was short and covered some 200 meters at the reunification monument in Yaounde.

A participant at the event who chatted with Cameroon Concord noted that “We are here to support and encourage the good work of our defence and security forces against the terrorist sect Boko Haram. We are here to pay tribute to our valiant soldiers who have lost their lives in defence of the homeland”

The rally which was scantily attended did not record the participation of any Cameroon government official or members of the so called responsible opposition.  Cameroon Concord has been reliably informed that the whole concept to honour our troops have been heavily politicized with the Divisional Officer for Mfoundi banning another rally slated for Friday the 23rd  in Yaoundé.

It is important to include in this report that the event in support of our troops did not record the heavy participation that was anticipated because some highly placed CPDM officials were prevented from using it for political gains.
