Top US diplomat suggests taking Cameroon to global forum (12.03.2019)

Some half a million people have been displaced as Cameroon’s government battles an Anglophone separatist movement in the largely French-speaking country.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, March 12, 2019 – The top United States diplomat to Africa says perhaps it’s time to take the deadly separatist crisis in Cameroon to an “international forum.”

An exasperated Tibor Nagy told reporters on Tuesday that “my heart breaks for Cameroon … I just don’t understand why this crisis goes on and on and on.”

Some half a million people have been displaced as Cameroon’s government battles an Anglophone separatist movement in the largely French-speaking country. Weary residents in the middle have pleaded for peace.

Nagy, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for Africa, called for “open, unlimited national dialogue.”

Cameroon’s government in a strongly worded statement last week criticized Nagy’s earlier comments on the Anglophone crisis, accusing him of misunderstanding the situation and interfering in the West African country’s internal affairs.

Cameroon: Hon. Kombi must be afraid of Buea(!!)

This edition of the race gives us the opportunity to further prove our desire of living together because in spite of linguistic and political diversity, the Cameroonian people are and must remain one and indivisible,” Cameroon’s Minister of Sports and Physical Education, Narcisse Mouelle Kombi told reporters at the start of the competition.“ (Cameroon Concord News – ‘The scantily attended Mountain Race of Fear’ 24.02.2019).

Professor Kombi is really a rare breed as he attended a award ceremony at Molyko Omnisport Stadium in Buea in the South West Region of Cameroon. As the runners finished a yearly peace march for hope in the civil-war torn region.

That Kombi was frighten and afraid of the area is evident. As he entered with a Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) or something similar. Kombi came as he needed an brigade and army to secure the stadium. That is how the regime is entering the region. Where they have sent mercenaries and soldiers, burning villages, killing civilians and also making towns into ghost towns. That is what the government does at the moment, while keeping the leadership of the Anglophone is behind bars or in exile. Therefore, the Minister of the Francophone had to arrive with the army. Because, if not, he would not feel safe.

This show how the regime is not coming in peace, but in war. As there ministers are coming with bullet-proof vests, armoured vehicles like all Anglophone citizens are terrorist, while the orders and decrees of violence comes from the Francophone regime. They are the ones that should silence the guns and stop the violence. Instead, they continue to harass and destroy this region, as they are called militants and terrorist, even if the state is the biggest supplier of terror.

Kombi should have come like a proud man, a man of honour, but instead he came like a scared and little man. Minister Kombi didn’t come with confidence or hope, but with nervousness and the freaking army.

Even if they we’re supposed to carry the peace tree and plant it. It cannot grow well, when you needs soldiers around you to get it to grow. It would have grown better, if the civilians actually could take care of it. Instead of being afraid in the bush and running away from burning villages. Peace.

Urgent support needed to respond to Humanitarian Needs in Cameroon (20.02.2019)

Renewed armed attacks have driven tens of thousands more Nigerians into Cameroon’s Far-North region, which already hosts 138,000 refugees.

YAOUNDE, Cameroon, February 20, 2019 – Humanitarian needs in Cameroon have risen by a third this year owing to an upsurge in insecurity and violence, leaving one in six people – mostly women and children – requiring assistance. Today we launch the 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan appealing for US$299 million to provide support to 2.3 million people.

“The humanitarian emergency in Cameroon must remain high on our agenda. We must step up efforts to meet the needs of the affected population, many of whom are surviving in deplorable conditions without assistance,” said Ms. Allegra Baiocchi. the United Nations Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator for Cameroon.

“In recent years, funding for humanitarian response has not kept pace with the needs. This means that we have been unable to provide enough food, water or medicine to vulnerable people, treat malnutrition or assist displaced families. This is very worrying as humanitarian needs are likely to continue growing in the coming months,” Ms. Baiocchi said.

In 2018, only 40 per cent of the $320 million needed for humanitarian assistance was received.

This year, around 4.3 million people need urgent assistance. Displacement has risen by 82 per cent compared with 2018. Renewed armed attacks have driven tens of thousands more Nigerians into Cameroon’s Far-North region, which already hosts 138,000 refugees. In North-West and South-West regions, worsening violence has uprooted 437,000 people and forced over 32,000 to seek refuge in neighbouring Nigeria. The East, Adamaoua and North regions host 275,000 Central African refugees.

“We acknowledge the scale of the humanitarian emergency and urge all actors to work with the Government to address the rising needs,” said MINAT. “We must also work together to not only ease the suffering of vulnerable populations, but to seek lasting solution for communities to withstand adversity.”

The crises arising from armed violence add to existing chronic vulnerabilities, including inadequate basic services, epidemics, food insecurity and malnutrition as well as the impact of climate change.

The 2019 humanitarian response plan focuses on providing immediate assistance to save lives, bolstering the protection of affected civilians, identifying risks and vulnerabilities to support the resilience of communities to shocks.
