The National Council of Communication (CNC), has threatened to close down all media outlets that are reporting or debating the Anglophone crisis.
Peter Essoka, the chairman of the media regulator in Cameroon, warned all private media houses operating in Cameroon on the airwaves of state owned CRTV.
In the warning notice, Essoka laid emphasis on Cameroonian private newspapers, radio, television and print media, which have been publishing or broadcasting articles in favor of secession or a return to a federal state of the country.
The National Union of Cameroonian Journalists (SNJC) has promised to react to what representatives of private media houses call "attacks" on freedom of press.
A plea from Cameroon Concord........
Thank you for reading our magazine, we have a plea to ask you our readers. Over the last two years, hits on our articles have been climbing, we have had an increase in clicks and also a broader reading audience on our social media channels.Our readers have been writing to us requestion for news updates from Cameroon/Southern Cameroons. We have as well been trying to give you the best we can, however, we are short of finances to recruit reporters to carry on independent and investigative journalism which takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. We are therefore pleading on you to support our efforts for this platform to be able to keep up the good work we are doing.
For as little as €1, you can support Cameroon Concord– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
