In a letter addressed to the head of state on 31 October 2017, some Bamileke authorities complained about the low representation of locals of the West Region, particularly the Bamilekes when it comes to appointment to strategic positions.
“This is a law that was passed in the West Region but we have observed that, it has not been respected. Those in charge of this sign just any document and send to the president of the Republic.” Declared Pr Sindjoune Pokam, the Secretary General of Lakaam, the group of people complaining.
In the Letter written by the Lakaam it is revealed that, not up to 5% of the population is included when it comes to appointments in Cameroon.
