Dear Comrades in the struggle to right wrongs in our fatherland, on behalf of the coordination of teacher trade unions, I wish to assert here that the struggle we are engaged in is not a fight between anglophones and francophones. PLEASE, YOU GOT IT WRONG IF YOU GOT THAT FEELING.
The noble crusade is against the mismanagement of the anglophone cultural values in our bicultural setup. Note should be taken that in most cases, we have seen such cultural values mismanaged in the style of feudal lords of the medieval ages, not necessarily because official instructions were dished out to the effect.
Therefore, we take the pains to reiterate that this IS NOT A POINTED STRUGGLE BETWEEN ENGLISH SPEAKING AND FRENCH SPEAKING CHILDREN OF ONE GOD-GIVEN FATHERLAND, BUT A LOFTY EFFORT TO CORRECT STRUCTURAL AND SYSTEMIC MISTAKES FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL CAMEROONIAN CHILDREN AND OF OUR BELOVED FATHERLAND.
We cannot and should not be content when one injustice (francophone domination) is being replaced with another (anglophone arbitrariness/ madness).
Please, if what is being said about the persecution of francophones in Bambili is true, let us talk to our anglophone brothers and sister there to put an instant stop to this madness in an era of globalisation.
Let this message go viral on social media.
