The celebration of Cameroon’s National reunification day has been evaluated to be very poor this year, ranging from participation to merry making.

{loadposition myposition}

 

In some areas like Kumbo, reports have it that the march past lasted just for 35 minutes and with a very timid turnout of the population. There were no spectators and not up to 10 schools participated.

On the part of Bamenda, there was a better turnout, more than that of 2017, even though not up to what the celebration used to look like in the past.

In Yaounde, Paul Biya watched SDF supporters march with hands on their heads, a significance of the fact that they were not happy with what was happening in the Anglophone Regions of the country. Some are even said to have marched half naked.

{loadposition myposition}

Jean Marie Tchakui, the Divisional officer, said the work is meant to free the path leading into the market as CRTV recounts.

The market had become a centre of disorder as reports have it. It is for this reason that the Senior Divisional Officer of that area, authorised the DO to carry out the task of destroying some of the shops.

The business men and women in the market say that to pay for space right in the market is expensive and above them. They explain that outside they pay just 100FRS per person everyday.

"One has to pay 30000frs monthly for a shop in the market. that is so expensive" one of the disgruntled traders said

Cameroon: Agbor Balla condemns kidnappings, calls for release of Justice Mbeng Martin http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-agbor-balla-condemns-kidnappings-calls-for-release-of-justice-mbeng-martin http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-agbor-balla-condemns-kidnappings-calls-for-release-of-justice-mbeng-martin Cameroon: Agbor Balla condemns kidnappings, calls for release of Justice Mbeng Martin

Cameroonian barrister Agbor Balla, following the news about the abduction of Justice Mbeng Martin, has strongly condemned the kidnappings that are taking place in the Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon.

He made the call after his colleague Justice Mbeng Martin fell prey to armed groups in the Southwest Region.

{loadposition myposition}

 

"During the early hours of Sunday April 8 2018 reports from family sources confirmed that an armed group abducted Justice Mbeng Martin, former Vice president of court of Appeal, Southwest.

'We deplore the kidnapping in the strongest possible terms. These abhorrent attacks on civilians by armed groups must stop now. I call on all those with the means to engage to stop these violations and return Justice Mbeng Martin.

'Suppressing freedom of speech, association and attacking others with different views do not represent the values we ought to build. We must not be bullied into silence through the barrel of a gun by armed groups.

'The incident regrettably indicates the serious deterioration in the security situation, escalation of the Anglophone crisis and peak of radicalisation in our communities. It is therefore imperative that we take steps to ensure that kidnap for ransom or to score political concessions is no longer perceived as a lucrative business model.

'To put an end to the Stalemate, all parties must seek constructive negotiations which will lead to a peaceful settlement, long term stability and equal opportunities for every citizen." Barrister Balla said in his release of Sunday 8 April 2018.
