Jean-Marie Atangana Mebara: Cameroonian politician in detention says Ambazonians should be listened to

Atangana Mebara discloses from his prison cell that he has been following the Anglophone crisis, which now dates a year ago, and says demands of his English speaking brothers and sisters should be taken into consideration.

The information the politician said he got about the crisis was so disturbing, thus he thought to make his own contribution, after having had the opportunity to meet with some of the Anglophone leaders who were detained.





He said he noticed a good number of French speaking Cameroonians had still been saying there is no Anglophone problem even at this stage. On the other hand, some of them are behind this struggle but with hopes that the regime in power is toppled.

Southern Cameroonians are fighting notably against the treatment they have been receiving from those in power. As pointed out by Mebara, Anglophones come second place when it comes to administrative positions in the country as well as in other domains; documents are written in bold letters in French and then the translation in English comes with tiny characters in case it’s translated.

When some of the French speaking brothers and sisters are transferred to work in Northwest and Southwest Regions, they tend to impose French on the inhabitants of these areas.

For this crisis to be ended according to Mr Paul Biya and some international organisations, dialogue is the solution.

The question now is; who are those going to the dialogue table? What is the key thing that will be dialogued about?

Atangana reiterates the fact that, Southern Cameroonians should be treated as they deserve in their country.
