The two chambers of parliament are meeting on November 14, next week in ordinary session.
This information is contained in two press releases signed by the president of the Senate and the speaker of the National Assembly on Monday.
Parliament meets thrice a year in ordinary sessions in Cameroon. That's in March, June and November.
This meeting is coming when the stakes are high, especially at the backdrop of the Anglophone crisis.
What are the lawmakers going to tell the people?
Reports reaching Cameroon Concord say at least one gendarme officer has been murdered and two others injured in clashes with local masked men in Kumbo in the North West region of Cameroon.
Prime News reports that the clashes began when the masquerades went round to chase students out of classes, precisely at GTHS Kumbo.
It's reported that the masquerades make routine parades around schools, chasing students from classes.
Kumbo is heavily militarised now, reports say.
This is a continuation of the Anglophone crisis.
I have kept my mouth shut on our brother's activities from May 9, 2015 because I thought we all had a commitment to the common goal of rescuing the Southern Cameroons National Identity.
My realization that International Civil Society Organizations are adroitly pursuing the British and French longstanding policies against Southern Cameroons has prompted me to stop cushioning undercurrents.
After writing what I am forwarding to you, I called Chatham House and was connected to their Africa Program. The person I spoke to did not sound convincing. I encourage you to mobilize our people in London and confront the debate with questions that will bring out the truth of our case and how pseudo-Leaders are trading with it.
Criticized for years by market analysts and experts, the presence of two stock exchanges in an economic community was considered as an embarrassment and the actual manifestation of national selfishness.
Following the summit of the Heads of States of CEMAC on October 31, 2017, in Ndjamena, Libreville will not host the headquarters of the Central African stock exchange (BVMAC) anymore. The conference of Heads of States decided the transfer of the regional stock exchange, which up till now was in Libreville, to Cameroon’s capital.
At the same time, while the conference decided to keep the headquarters of the regional financial market regulator in Libreville and, move the headquarters of the regional stock exchange to Douala, it also appointed the Bank of Central African states as the central depository.
This decision ends disputes between these two stock exchanges. Henceforth, stock market transactions will take place In Douala. This should grow the market and encourage companies which were reluctant to list on the stock exchange.
Foxnews: President Trump announced Wednesday that he will ask Congress to scrap the 1990s Diversity Immigrant Visa program, through which the New York City terrorist entered the U.S.
Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, yelled "Allahu Akbar" and ran a truck into bikers and pedestrians on Tuesday afternoon near lower Manhattan's West Side Highway, killing 8 and injuring at least 11.
The visa program, also known as "diversity lottery" was spearheaded by Sen. Chuck Schumer, whom Trump blasted on Twitter earlier today for his role in it.
"Diversity lottery. It sounds nice. It's not nice," the president said to reporters at the White House.
Trump added that he would "certainly consider" sending such terrorists to Gitmo.
He also reiterated that he is in favor of a "merit-based program" for visa approval.
"We're so politically correct that we're afraid to do anything," he stated, adding that chain migration reform bills are being stopped by Democrats because they are "obstructionists."
Southern Cameroons Journal, Kaduna, Nigeria – The Conclave has risen with a final resolution proscribing the Southern Cameroons Ambazonia United Front SCACUF, and empowering former Chairman of SCACUF Governing Council, Julius AyukTabe to become first President of the Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia) Interim Government.
Proceedings which began last Saturday in earnest rather in a contentious manner at the campus of the famous Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria rounded up late Tuesday night October 31, after a review and endorsement of a 29-point resolution that is yet to be signed by the new President.
The conclave empowered President AyukTabe to form an Interim Gov’t comprising of a Vice President, Restoration Parliament, (Council), and an Ethics Commission. The Gov’t, fashioned after a presidential system like in the USA system, shall consist of seven Departments whose heads shall be called Secretaries. The departments shall include Foreign Affairs, Defense, Finance and Economy, Home Affairs, Communications, Education and Social Services.
In the 29-point resolution ending the conclave, members among other things warn the Republic of Cameroun to withdraw its troops from the Southern Cameroons so that refugees can safely return to their homes. They emphasized that unless the troops are completely withdrawn and the security of school kids ensured by such a withdrawal, there will be no
school resumption. It further states that Ghost Towns must continue every Monday and whenever circumstances dictate. The resolutions also call for the immediate and unconditional release of Mancho Bibixy and all other held prisoners in prisons and detention centers across Cameroon
The resolutions equally call upon Southern Cameroonians to step up resistance against any orders from the colonial LRC administration such as resisting any form of taxation and levies. It appeals to traditional authorities in all of Southern Cameroons to henceforth act in the place of a constituted government in rendering and supervising local administration, away from LRC colonial administrators.
Among other things, the conclave terminated SCAPAC’s relationship with the new government suggesting that accusations of financial impropriety involving the former Secretary General and SCAPAC were unfounded, following their own investigations. Milan Atam’s alleged resignation was revoked, making him a potential member of the yet to be announced new gov’t. The Southern Cameroons Broadcasting Corporation SCBC TV, hitherto sponsored partly through SCAPAC, will henceforth operate independently from the new government.
The Conclave and the Interim Gov’t come exactly a month in the wake of the declaration of the restoration of the independence of the former British Southern Cameroons on October 1st this year.
