The Francophone governor of the Buea province of Southern Cameroons has revealed that the Yaoundé regime will henceforth monitor telephone conversations of West Cameroonians in order to identify secessionists and persons fanning the flames of the Anglophone uprising. The land grabber governor made the revelation last week during a meeting to assess the security situation in his administrative unit. He added that he was acting following instructions from the presidency of the republic.
According to Bernard Okala, the objective of this mission of Big Brother surveillance is to identify the secessionists and any person feeding the current situation in the Northwest and Southwest. “We plan to stop all the actors involved in the uprising. Some people claim to be disturbed by the situation, but support the secessionists behind the scenes, “said Bernard Okala, who also hinted that about ten names of people who disrupt peace in Southern Cameroons have already been spotted.
The French Cameroun Commissioner for the Buea province emphasized that the South West region cannot be demilitarized when people continue to burn government buildings and intimidate the population. However, it should be noted that telephone conversations are protected. According to the law n2010 / 013 of 21 December 2010 governing telephone calls in Cameroon, the protection of privacy with respect to private telephone calls are twofold. The first relates to the prohibition of unauthorized telephone tapping and the second concerns the protection of consumers against anonymous infringements via telephone calls.
