The Anglophone Crisis: once more the Cameroonian military has proven beyond dispute that there are by far worse than scouts. How could the Military take armoured cars to the the bridge at Ekom, a frontier locality with Nigeria.

The Anglophone Crisis: once more the Cameroonian military has proven beyond dispute that there are by far worse than scouts. How could the Military take armoured cars to the the bridge at Ekom, a frontier locality with Nigeria.

All the fanfare and the so much trumpeted Convention is now so low keyed and is shockingly shut down by the ghost towns. John Fru Ndi seeing stars in Bamenda after being refused convention halls by the Catholic and Presbyterian Churches, had to relocate to the Congress Hall. The new venue of the Convention being the Congress Hall was announced by Jean Robert Wafo, the Shadow Minister of Communication.

  John Fru Ndi today is bleeding blood because he isn't believing his own eyes of what he is seeing. Whether the Social Democratic Front holds this convention or not, one thing remains clear that John Fru Ndi buried the Social Democratic Front in Bamenda on the 22nd of February 2018. The elective convention is aimed at electing a new executive for the Social Democratic Front and those postulating to become the Presidential flag bearers are Joshua Osih, Joseph Mbah Ndam and Fobi Simon Nchinda.
 

Cameroon has a new military region created to cater for security needs in the west and northwest region, the state-owned CRTV has reported.

President Paul Biya signed directives reorganizing the country’s defense forces leading to the splitting into two of the former military region [Région militaire interarmées – RMIARMIA 2 which is based in Douala.

The new region becomes the fifth (RMIA 5) and is headquarted in capital of the northwest region Bamenda.

  It is to be headed by General Agha Robinson Ndong while General Julius Caesar Ellie has been appointed commander of its Gendarmerie region (RG5).

The measure is seen as a clear plan to deal with the raging Anglophone crisis that has rocked the country since October 2017. Separatists in the region continue to engage in deadly clashes with security forces.

Under the banner of the so-called Ambazonia republic, separatists are pushing a breakaway of the Anglophone regions (northwest and southwest) from French-majority Cameroon.

The government has insisted that the region remains secured and has declared the separatists terrorists. Last month, Nigeria deported about 47 separatists to Yaounde, the deportees included a known separatist leader, Julius Sisuku Ayuk Tabe.

Nigeria has also been bearing the brunt of the crisis in Cameroon with the continuing influx of refugees. The United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, has reported that thousands of people have arrived in Nigeria over the past few months.

Major change: Military Region 2 is split into two. It gives birth to the military region No. 5 whose command post is in Bamenda.

Also, the army changes in the Generals:

RMIA 2 Douala : Saly Mohamadou

RMIA 5 Bamenda : Agha Robinson Ndong

12e BRIM Bertoua : Joseph Nouma.

RG 2 Douala : Toungue Elias.

RG 4 Maroua: Louba Zal Pierre.

RG 5 Bamenda : Essoh Jules Cesar.

DG Eiforces : Bitote André Patrice.

The above changes comes after more than 210 soldiers were killed this week by well-armed Ambazonia soldiers in Ambazonia. Biya's terrorists are disoriented and weakened by the Ambazonia soldiers and some Generals in Biya's army opted to resign from Ambazonia, arguing that they are ill-equipped to face our soldiers.

La Republique current has 64 army Generals. Ambazonia has only 1.

On February 20, 2018, Paul Biya officially ended the privatization of water production and distribution in Cameroon. That day, a presidential decree was signed to reorganize Cameroon Water Utilities (CAMWATER) which was till then in charge of drinking water management.  The company is now in charge of the production and distribution in urban and semi-urban areas.

 

Indeed, for ten years now, Camerounaise des eaux (CDE), a private consortium of ONEP, MEDZ, DELTA Holding and INGEMA, has been in charge of the production and distribution. After these years of privatization, the result was not that bright (the water service interruptions have been more frequent in Yaoundé in the past few months). The government then decided to end the privatization and return the water sector to a public company as had been the case for decades.

For the record, water production and distribution service was taken care of by Société Nationale des eaux du Cameroun (Snec), before it was privatized in the 2000s.
