Southern Cameroons Crisis: Paul Biya speaks to the nation tomorrow 0

Cameroon’s president, Paul Biya, will address the nation tomorrow at 8pm Cameroon time.

A source at the presidency has hinted that the Yaounde strong man will focus on the Southern Cameroons crisis.

He is expected to announce the formation of a commission to design the modalities for dialogue with Southern Cameroonians.

He will also underscore the importance of dialogue and forgiveness. He is expected to grant clemency to many Southern Cameroonians arrested within the framework of the current crisis and those in the Diaspora.

He will be cajoling the Diaspora by playing up the importance of the country’s vibrant Diaspora which, he thinks, can help with development efforts in the country, our source said.

He is also expected to put an end to the Kamto saga that has left the country with a bloodshot eye.

Mr. Biya, who has refused to listen international calls for dialogue, has finally caved in and wants peace to return to the two English-speaking regions of the country.

It should be recalled that some 3,000 Southern Cameroonians have been brutally murdered by Mr. Biya’s military and despite rumors about a possible reconciliation, the country’s military is still slaughtering innocent civilians in the two English-speaking regions of the country.
