Cameroon ... Dr. Simon Munzu Creates Anglophone Dialogue Forum

A new platform to to provide peaceful and durable solutions to the ongoing crisis in the English speaking regions of the country has been born. 

Baptised the Anglophone Dialogue Forum in Buea, the founder Dr Simon Munzu says membership is open to all who can bring useful suggestions on how best the crisis could be resolved.

He says President Paul Biya's call for Cameroonians to "listen to each other" and "remain open to constructive ideas" should be followed by practical solutions. Dr Munzu believes it is time for the for the Anglophone problem to be resolved once and for all through frank, honest and truthful discussions.
Cameroon ... Dr. Simon Munzu Creates Anglophone Dialogue Forum
Senators, MPs, he clergy, traditional rules, the educaton family, te media and business community have been invited to rally behind this body and bring useful suggestions that will be forwarded to Government for prompt action. The Anglophone problem goes beyond issues of bilingualism and multi culturalism, the problems of anglophone lawyers and teachers. It embraces a plethora of grievances felt by the anglophone community that have risen over several decades of institutional mismanagement and dismantling of the political, administrative, infrastructural, economic and cultural heritage that Southern Cameroon brought into the federal union.

The Anglophone Dialogue forum belives that measures taken by the Head of state to address aspects of the problem are a positive step in the right direction. However these measures cannot lead to the achievements of peace and unity.

Aware of the rising demand for the restoration of the statehood of Southern Cameroon, the body believes on the goodwill of ALL sides, and only dialogue can assure the country's unity in diversity including its diverse colonial heritages.

The President of the Cameroon outlawed Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor Balla had ealier revealed that "Anglophones will meet in the days ahead in an All Anglophone Dialogue Forum to chart the way forward for the Anglophone cause."
It still remains unclear whether the present body coordinated by Dr Munzu is the fruit of that decalaration.
