A group of hungry so-called journalists grouped under a yet-to-be known federation of Anglophone Journalist Association were caught sharing money at Ayaba Hotel in Bamenda recently. The gang were also demanding the news reporters to sell their message that students must return to school on Monday the 9th of January, 2017.
The information was made public by John Mbah Akuroh, a senior political news reporter and president of the Cameroon Anglophone Publishers Association, CANPA. Mbah Akuroh added that the said traitors, led by one Dotta Ezekiel who runs The Watchdog newspaper, specialized in dishing out awards to gullible politicians, posed as representing all Anglophone journalists in Cameroon.
The President of the Cameroon Anglophone Publishers’ Association, CANPA and Secretary General of the Commonwealth Journalists Association – CJA- Cameroon, declared late last night to local and international pressmen that media gurus in the North West region support the strikes and stand by the demands made.
John Mbah Akuroh further pointed out that his union backs the calls for schools shutdown and ghost town until the demands presented are met.”
