The Anglophone crisis is a devastating civil conflict in Cameroon. The conflict began over the marginalisation of the Anglophone minority, which has resulted in thousands of deaths, burning villages, and hundreds of thousands of refugees. The conflict has left many children and families without a father and a husband, and has left entire communities crippled. These problems are only compounded by the fact that many Anglophone villages are inaccessible to foreign aid.
The crisis has also been a boon to certain individuals. Contractors who supply the separatist fighters and security forces with weapons have most likely been enjoying increased business. In Cameroon, the crisis has led to some Anglophones gaining political positions, such as Minister of Secondary Education and Territorial Administration. The government also created a commission to promote bilingualism and a national disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration committee. In addition, there were new common law divisions in the Supreme Court and the National School of Administration and Magistrature.
Separatist fighters attacks schools
Separatist fighters have repeatedly targeted schools and threatened teachers and pupils in Cameroon. More than 230,000 children have fled the country, including dozens of students, as a result of the violence. Separatist fighters have accused the diaspora of orchestrating the attacks and fostering an atmosphere of insecurity in the country. Separatists must stop their attacks and restore trust in the country.
The violence has left more than 3,000 people dead and displaced nearly half a million people. Separatist fighters are targeting schools in order to win territory. Separatist fighters have targeted schools in order to gain control of the country’s vast forests. The conflict is largely confined to the northern part of Cameroon, causing widespread damage. However, the conflict has not ended there.
The attacks have spread to other parts of the country. Separatist fighters are targeting schools in Cameroon to dislodge the government’s rule. The separatists have threatened the leaders of the nation with a “serious threat”. But the government has been unable to act, as they have consistently promised. An initial summary of the report was published in April 2020 and legal proceedings began in June at the Yaounde Military Tribunal. As of December, three people were on trial.
Separatists kidnap lawyer
On August 29, armed separatists broke into a major seminary compound in the country’s North West region and kidnapped a retired lawyer from the ruling party. They demanded a ransom of 20 million CFA francs ($34,600) in exchange for his release. Human Rights Watch contacted former colleagues and the government to confirm that Francis had been abducted and tortured.
A 54-year-old male lawyer was kidnapped on May 29 by separatist fighters in the Babanki region. Separatists locked him up for three days without food and threatened him with harm if he did not pay the ransom. Fortunately, he was released after a ransom payment of 1.1 million CFA. In the meantime, he continues to receive threats of harm. Separatists have also attacked a government high school in Weh and abducted five teachers and injured two students.
The government of Cameroon has condemned the abductions and said that the abduction of teachers is “very serious”. Bishop Bibi said the kidnappers violated the rights of children to an education and that they were not allowed to attend school. After a teacher was abducted, the children were scared to go to school. After the abduction, Bishop Bibi condemned the situation and said that the abductions were incompatible with the Catholic religion.
Separatists threaten to beat 11 students
In Cameroon, separatist fighters have threatened to beat 11 school children. The attack took place in the village of Eka near the town of Widikum. Separatists in a military uniform were seen at the scene of the fire. The UC Berkeley Human Rights Center geolocated the school and Bellingcat confirmed the location. Separatist leaders have been criticized for abusing civilians.
The video of the incident quickly went viral on Cameroonian social media, accompanied by an ominous message. The man in the undershirt looks blankly at the ground as his interrogator begins a mock interrogation. The man had been on his way to Bamenda city, where he was scheduled to supervise an information technology exam. He tries to defend himself by saying he is not going to teach. The separatist interrogator compares the teacher to his brother’s heroism, which he did not do.
In February, separatists burned down a private school in the town of Nkambe in the north-western region. Hundreds of students and teachers were forced out of school. The government’s harsh response to the school boycott and repressive stance towards separatists has jeopardized the children’s right to a safe education. However, some Cameroonian authorities have made efforts to address the issue and have endorsed the Safe Schools Declaration.
