Senators and members of parliament of the Social Democratic Front, SDF have staged a protest march in Bamenda. The elected representatives say the riots of Bamenda and the other street demonstrations are the direct consequence of bad governance by the ruling CPDM crime syndicate.
The SDF MPs reportedly left the National Assembly Chamber on the 28th of November which is currently examining the budget and braved the bad roads to Bamenda, the capital of the North West Region and called for the holding of a national conference.
These elected representatives of the people carried placards condemning police violence on lawyers and the students with others stating that “Federalism remains the only solution”. Hon. Tchinda Fobi, of the Bamenda constituency was quoted as saying that the Anglophone problem is real in Cameroon and that there was an urgent need for national dialogue.
On November 27-29, 2016, the SDF Senators and MPs told Marcel Niat Njifenji, President of the Senate, and Cavaye Yéguié Djibril, President of the National Assembly, to “apprehend the major grievances of the Anglophone people”.
