The West Cameroon crisis has intensified, with the election of an interim President of the Southern Cameroons Governing Council, Sesekou Ayuk Julius Tabe. The Roman Catholic Bishops who at the very beginning of the struggle wrote a strongly worded memorandum to the 84 year Cameroonian dictator have now said schools should resume in West Cameroon.
The Francophone political elites have not made any genuine concession to Southern Cameroonians and they continue to keep hundreds of Anglophones in Francophone jails including the leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium.
A senior official in the Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo regime who spoke to Cameroon Concord News late yesterday, painted SCACUF’s election of Sesekou Ayuk Julius Tabe in the following words: “Are we suppose to pay much attention any time a dog barks? Barking is their nature. They bark when they are scared, they bark when they are hungry, they bark when they need attention, they bark when they get jealous. They bark when they are lonely, and they bark to act tough.”
In this edition of the AGBAW-EBAI DEBATE, we are asking our readers what Southern Cameroonians should expect from President Ayuk Julius Tabe?
