The ongoing ordinary session of parliament is one of the most heated in recent times.

This agitation is not the result of the confrontation between the lawmakers and members of government defending their budgets. It's rather the protest by SDF lawmakers that's heating the house.

SDF lawmakers began by boycotting the opening ceremony of this final session, before embarking on what has been termed "blockade" meant to push through talks of the Anglophone crisis in parliament.

There has also been the fire incident which burnt down the most part of the lower house of parliament.

And logically, SDF MPs are absolutely right to force the Anglophone crisis onto the agenda.

The fight against Boko haram was included on the agenda of parliament without any uproar. After deliberations, the fight was intensified.

Why can't the Anglophone crisis be discussed as well? Isn't it a national problem , too?



Or is the lower house of parliament an affiliate of the executive power?

In a country where seriousness prevails, the massacres of November 22 and October 1 would have been investigated by a special commission of enquiry set for that purpose.

More than 100 persons reportedly died during the two incidents, when Southern Cameroonians organized 'independence' manifestations.

The people of Southern Cameroons are waiting for something beyond what the president has offered teachers and lawmakers, and the release of an insignificant number of Southern Cameroonians.

And the persistence of ghost towns and school boycott in Southern Cameroons speaks volume of the determination of the people as well as the scale of the crisis.

As the crisis prevails, parents respecting the government to the point of sacrificing their children may finally get won over by activists clamouring for the restoration of the statehood of Southern Cameroons, if President Biya remains silent.
