Cameroon Journal, Yaounde – Instead of proffering solutions to the current Anglophone teachers, lawyers protest that has paralyzed business in the two regions of the country, President Biya is once more showing his ineptitude to Anglophone Cameroonians by dispatching his party’s delegation to the regions for provocative rallies that may turn deadly.

Biya has dispatched Jean Nkuete, Secretary General of his party, Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM), to the South West and North West Regions to hold what many has described as seditious rallies instead of dialogue alongside CPDM elite of both regions.

Nkuete, alongside some top CPDM Anglophone elite, largely considered as regime’s bootlickers are expected to be in the South West Region, precisely in Buea, tomorrow, Tuesday December 6, and in Bamenda, North West region, Thursday December 8.

While in the two Regions, we gathered that Nkuete and his Anglophone comrades will hold grand rallies. According to reliable CPDM party sources, they will use the occasion to preach

flattering peace, unity, reconciliation ‘sermons’ in efforts to cajole the masses to condemn and ignore calls for the secession of the Southern Cameroons.

Going by a radio announcement signed by Peter Mafany Musonge, former Prime Minister and CPDM leader for the South West Region, the CPDM come-together will take place at 10 am Tuesday, at Bongo Square, Buea. Amongst those invited are CPDM senators, MPs, Mayors, delegates, past and present members of Government, Politburo and Central Committee members as well as traditional rulers.

Both CPDM rallies in Buea and Bamenda are expected to end in a parade to support national unity, encourage tolerance and integration, The Cameroon Journal learned.

In a run-up to the Bamenda event, we gathered that some North West CPDM elite met over the weekend in Yaounde and raised 500,000 FCFA for any artist or group of artists who will compose and sing a crisis-resolution song. The song, we gathered, must condemn the ongoing strike action, drum calls for national unity and integration.

By press time Sunday evening, most Anglophone artists contacted for the job had turned down the offer. One of them who spoke to our reporter on condition of anonymity said even if the amount is raised to 5million FCFA, he will not betray the Anglophone cause.

However, we gathered a popular Anglophone artist was negotiating with the CPDM members to take up the offer. We couldn’t immediately confirm the name of the artist.
