MPs from Cameroon's main opposition party (SDF) have blocked Cameroon's Prime Minister from addressing the National Assembly unless he brings forth the Anglophone crisis on the table.There is a heavy military presence surrounding the building.This comes barely a few days after the same group of opposition parliamentarians obstructed the speaker of the house with revolutionary songs, demanding that the crisis should be included in the agenda of the session.
Most of the SDF lawmakers hail from the two anglophone regions. They have faced threats and physical assaults for continuing to serve in the National Assembly amid the crisis.
The SDF lawmakers announced a boycott a week ago demanding the government do more to peacefully end the strike. On Thursday, they began singing to interrupt parliament proceedings.They plan to further disrupt session at this time of the year when the 2018 national budget has to be adopted before the end of December 2017.
