Southern Cameroons Crisis: Musonge playing the Francophone card 0

The president of the so-called National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism has issued a political statement after he led a delegation of CPDM elites to the Buea Province in Southern Cameroons. Mafany Musonge said the people of Southern Cameroons are in favour of decentralization not secession.

Former Prime Minister Peter Mafany Musonge made the revelation after he reportedly met some, political intellectuals, traditional leaders, businessmen and leaders of civil society associations.

At the end of the consultations, Musonge and his gang pointed out there “there are localities where access  by roads is a huge problems.”  The CPDM Senator who as Prime Minister Minister did not carry an iota of development to West Cameroon observed that there are the problems of education, infrastructures which can be resolve through the effective implementation of decentralization.

Musonge summarized his findings in four main points: effective implementation of decentralization, construction of basic infrastructure, respect for the regional balance and representation of girls and sons of the two Anglophone regions in decision-making positions in the public administration as well as in the government.

A spokesperson for the Southern Cameroons Ambazonia Governing Council has dismissed the Musonge declarations as “mere political rhetoric”. The Governing Council indicated recently that it has been 23 years ever since Mr Paul Biya spoke of decentralization and nothing has been implemented.
