A witness said, “Seems Amba boys have finally entered town. I rushed out of office and took the Mulang road thinking I was being smart to take a short cut to the house but I met road blocks around the council area .I met policemen who were already there dismantling the blockage."

The governor of the North West region is yet to react to Friday’s incident which saw the entire city panicking. It was same day four individuals of the Tubah Council were abducted by Ambazonia fighters around Bambui, the first Deputy Mayor of Tubah, Chekelem Boniface escaped after being hinted by another staff that the situation was tense along the direction he took.

The Minister of Communication Issa Tchiroma Bakari organised a press conference on Thursday 14 June 2018, in order to debunk the allegations of Amnesty international concerning the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon, which according to them, are false.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Since the begining of the unrest in the English speaking Regions of Cameroon, Amnesty International, an organisation for the fight of human rights has written several reports about the issue from 2017 to 2018.

In their reports, the organisation holds the Cameroonian army guilty of causing havoc within the population and merciless torturing of alleged secessionist terrorists.

in reaction to the accusations, the government as usual through their communication minister Issa Tchiroma Bakari, organised a press conference on 14 June to give their own part of the story and prove the human rights organisation wrong.

The public outing of Tchiroma on Thursday was meant to tackle Amnesty International's report of June 12 2018.

Ex-Minister Biyiti Bi Essam appointed Cameroon’s ambassador to Israel http://cameroon-concord.com/local/ex-minister-biyiti-bi-essam-appointed-cameroon-s-ambassador-to-israel http://cameroon-concord.com/local/ex-minister-biyiti-bi-essam-appointed-cameroon-s-ambassador-to-israel Ex-Minister Biyiti Bi Essam appointed Cameroon’s ambassador to Israel

President Paul Biya has appointed former Communication and Poste and Telecommunication Minister Jean Pierre Biyiti Bi Essam Cameroon’s ambassador to Israel.

{loadposition myposition}

 

 

 

He was fired from government in 2015.

The appointment is contained in a presidential decree published on Thursday.

MrBiyiti Bi Essam is well known for allegedly diverting into his account a huge part of the money disbursed to organize the visit of Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.

About FCFA 770 million was reportedly sent to his account, a sum which he reportedly payed back when the law was at his heels.

This appointment has raised much dust in Cameroon. Most people say the old system is simply being recycled. President Biya is known for calling back retired members of his administration.

The same complaint was raised when former Prime Minister Peter MafaniMusonge was called to head the Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism several months ago.

Many othersare wondering if it implies that the regime has endorsed US President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Jerusalem is a highly disputed city between Israel and Palestine. Recently, Mr Trump successfully moved his country’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Jean Baptiste Placca: RFI journalist Says Paul should make way for his succession http://cameroon-concord.com/local/jean-baptiste-placca-rfi-journalist-says-paul-should-make-way-for-his-succession http://cameroon-concord.com/local/jean-baptiste-placca-rfi-journalist-says-paul-should-make-way-for-his-succession Jean Baptiste Placca: RFI journalist Says Paul should make way for his succession

Jean Baptist Placa a journalist with RFI, after observing the happenings in Cameroon, has said the president needs to start seeking ways to organise his succession at the presidency.

{loadposition myposition}

 

The man made the statement after wondering how someone like Biya, after 36 years in power could find it difficult to chose someone among the collaborators he has been working with for a long time to take over from him.

“Paul Biya has been in power for over 36 years now, after having been prime minister for 7 years, secretary General at the presidency among other posts. Since 1962, he has been so active with the state for close to 56 years now, but it seems none of his collaborators whom he has been training is able to take over from him. I think there, Cameroon has a problem” the RFI journalist said.

According to him, Paul Biya could chose one of his collaborators to succeed him.

Placa made the observation after the utterances of the US ambassador against the Cameroonian president. He said he could not imagine Cameroonians dressed in the CPDM party wear, shouting on TV and insulting the ambassador for  saying what he had observed and thinks about Cameroon.

During the incident which occurred on Monday night, the administrative block of the institution was reduced to ashes including all of its content, which consisted of scripts which were written on the first day of the exam session.

The men came at night, when there was a heavy downpour during which the military had fallen asleep.

Government Bilingual High school Fundong is the biggest accommodation center in the Boyo division of the Northwest Region of Cameroon with over 600 students.

While the dust of the razed Fundong school is still to settle, there are other cases like that of the Muyuka examination center, which had to be transferred to Buea, after a gun battle on Monday 28 May, between the military and armed men, suspected to be Ambazonian fighters .

Candidates of the affected center are expected to relocate to Buea where their new center is. Center number 1110 GBHS Muyuka will now be in Center number 1101 in Buea.

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.
