Press Release

My dear compatriots

It is with great distress that I address you this November 23, 2016, at a time when the city of Bamenda, the chief town of the North-West Region, is experiencing important demonstrations by citizens and the civil society .

These manifestations are as a result of many frustrations and a sense of discontempt felt by our English-speaking compatriots.

Initiated by the lawyers’ of  this region, they are now followed by the entire population, including the Bayam-sellam and teacher unions, to name just a few.

The general strike was launched since Monday, November 21, 2016. All of this is the expression of a deep evil that one can not trivialize, when we just celebrated, not so long ago, the 50th anniversary of the Reunification of the country under this critical conditions, which has effected not the Anglophone populations.

The Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC) recognizes the right to a peaceful demonstration of our fellow citizens, and has not ceased since it was launch in 2012, to call for national dialogue.

Moreover, during the meeting of our party held in Bamenda on June 25 last, I indicated that there is an Anglophone problem in Cameroon that must be solved Politically and peacefully.

I reiterate that the MRC in power would organize a direct and frank dialogue to resolve this problem between compatriots, brothers and sisters, respecting our twofold Anglophone and Francophone heritage and the unity of our country.

As usual, faced with the cries of distress by our compatriots, the government opposes legitimate demands and has answered only by insinuating  violence.

The MRC condemns all forms of violence, wherever it comes from, and appeals for a  sense of the Responsibilities from those  charge with controlling the affairs of the country today.

The resolution of the Anglophone problem, social peace in the two regions directly concerned, as in the rest of the country, will not be achieved by the repression or deception of an intergovernmental seminar whose visible objective is to buy consciences To ensure the smooth running of an international competition in our country.

The MRC stands beside our Anglophone compatriots and all  other Cameroonians who suffer in silence, and reiterates its firm conviction and its attachment to dialogue as a means of resolving the many problems facing our country.

The party sends it’s condolences to the families of the victims of the violence of the security forces which increase the suffering of our populations and seriously tarnish the image of our country, at a time when it is receiving many foreign delegations for a competition which emphasizes the Peace and harmony in sport.

The MRC National President
Professor Maurice KAMTO
