Anglophone Protest is Organized Terrorism – Djibril, House Speaker

Six years old Cavayé Yéguié Djibril, Speaker of Cameroon’s National Assembly

Cameroon Journal, Yaounde –   Seventy Six years old Cavayé Yéguié Djibril, Speaker of Cameroon’s National Assembly, has expressed a desire to see Anglophone protesters severely punished.

The MP, who by Cameroonian standards is ‘Honorouble’, made the pronouncement while officially closing the third parliamentary session for this year, Friday December 9.

Cavaye dedicated a greater part of his speech to express bitterness at the ongoing strike actions orchestrated by Common Law lawyers and Anglophone teachers.

The Speaker, who hails from Mayo Savo Division of the Far North Region, condemned in strong terms the bloody protest which took place in Bamenda on December 8. He appeared upset that the protesting Anglophones disrupted a rally of his Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement,

CPDM party, which was scheduled to hold in the city. He was also mad at the fact that CPDM fabrics and the Republic of Cameroon’s flags were burnt in public, while Southern Cameroons flags were hoisted across some towns in the North West and South West Regions.

The National Assembly Speaker described Anglophones who took part in the strike as vandals and likened their actions to organized terrorism. It is not the first time the ageing MP is making allusion to terrorism. At the opening of the National Assembly session, he likened the social media use in Cameroon as a form of terrorism, he also had insinuated that there were Boko Haram members as MPs in the house.

Last Friday declaration by Cavaye was saluted by CPDM MPs, who form the majority in a parliament described as a “rubber stamp” parliament.

The MPs didn’t show any remorse for those who lost their lives in the shootings by security forces rather choosing to throw stones.

  1. He is but an old clown. This is an old man who has half a century experience in politics failing to read certain signals. He failed to notice that more than 20 000 Southern Cameroonians refused to sing the LRC national anthem in Buea when the SDF Chairman went rallying.
    The Haoussa man from Mayo Sava did not see the Southern Cameroons flags hoisted at the Commercial avenue in Bamenda and other towns of SC. That to him is “Terrorism”

    Abeg Old man, go slip!!!
