29, April 2017
The members of the so-called National Commission for Bilingualism and Multiculturalism have been installed into their functions. The Thursday 27th April 2017 ceremony at the Yaoundé Conference Centre has been rubbished by the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium. The team headed by an anti grass-field former Prime Minister Peter Mafany Musonge was commissioned by the Head of Government, Philemon Yang, on behalf of the Head of State.
In trying to divert from the Southern Cameroon problem and quest for an independent state, the PM called on the members to foster the two official languages for the sake of peace and national unity. The PM said bilingualism remains a rare asset of development and social cohesion at a time when French Cameroun political elites orchestrated the longest internet shut down ever recorded in the African continent against West Cameroonians. The ceremony came just two days after President Biya signed a decree appointing a certain Cornelius Chi Asafor as Secretary General of the commission. The Chairman of the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism said work will effectively begin this coming week.
Created by a presidential decree that was made public on the 15th March 2017, the Musonge Commission which composed of 15 members is a primitive and cheap design by the Biya Francophone regime to downplay the Southern Cameroons crisis. Its objective is to ensure the equal use of English and French as two official languages which has no bearing with the ongoing Anglophone crisis.
