Cameroon: Musonge-led commission prescribes French, English in state institutions

The National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism has recommended the use of English and French in all state institutions. This was during a courtesy visit to the Prime Minister's Office in Yaoundé on Tuesday.

The commission was created by President Paul Biya in the wake of the Anglophone crisis currently making headlines across the world.
But critics have condemned the commission as a misplaced priority, given that the core of the crisis is not bilingualism.
This may no longer be of much importance to some English-speaking Cameroonians, especially as their 'independence day is just a few days away.' October 1 is going to be a very decisive day in Cameroon.
