Cameroon: Anglophones no longer talk of a problem, they have the solution

As Prime Minister Yang Philemon and CPDM SG  Kuete lead their  militants for the supposed showdown at Bongo square in Buea today, yesterday's effervescent and cracking spectacle at the Molyko stadium also situated in Buea, should be keeping them in limbo.  Cameroons Opposition party (SDF) chairman John Fru Ndi himself who was star man yesterday must also be ruminating over the show which surely must have given him more to think than he ever imagined when he conceived the idea

The first of take home lessons from that event is that Anglophones no longer talk of a problem. They have the solution which ranges from moderate (federalism) to extremist (sessesion).

Anglophones have a VOICE . For the young and old to have FEARLESSLY raised messages of independence and sessesion despite heavy security is something that must have given the Governor, the DO and the Mayor a traumatizing night. It is a psychological defeat for a regime which has always thought it could supress such ideas with brute force and motions of support

The SDF is the only party in the country that has so far taken to heart this problem. Unlike other parties who limit themselves to circulars, the SDF has remained firm in its stance.

Though Fru Ndi could have used the event to pull a publicity stunt for his party, but the people have a louder voice that can not be drowned by any party coming into the struggle. That is why the senior citizen could not preach his philosophy of Federalism as he saw mammoth calls for independence overshadowed any agenda he wanted to disseminate.

CPDM rallies in Buea today and Bamenda Thursday do not reflect the views of the population who are increasingly disgruntled with govt indifference and provocative acts of violence.

Dialogue right now remains the way out. The head of state should personally interfer and resolve this ASAP. The population must remain responsible and stay away from any conflict with security forces.

The UN should be warming up to adress the matter if national avenues have been exhausted
