Fru Ndi chats with police during strike in Bamenda today.
Cameroon’s main opposition leader, John Fru Ndi, has reportedly quelled a violent military brutality on thousands of civilians who joined lawyers Tuesday in a peaceful march for democracy,Anglophone rights, justice and the rule of law.
Fru Ndi told the military to stop their brutality as they gassed the city and fired bullets and grenades.Scores have been severely injured, most of them women and children.”Do not shoot at them. Join them instead because they are fighting for you and your children and future generation,” Fru Ndi convinced Paul Biya’s military. “They are your own children and we are suffering from the same regime mess.”
Our sources confirmed that the soldiers succumbed to the opposition leaders suggestions and even used their phones to record their conversation with the charismatic leader.”One of the soldiers clapped for Fru Ndi,” a local reporter told me.
In 1961, Anglophone Cameroon reunited French Cameroon following a plebiscite, although no legal document exists to prove their union.
They have marginalized the anglophones for several decades and literally cut them off from effectively integrating into every national policy, political observers say.
