Parliament Should Pass Acts To Legalise Anglophone Concerns- Council of Protestant Churches

Council of Protestant Churches calls on government and the Consortium to re-engage in talks. The Council of Protestant Churches has called on the Biya Francophone Beti-Ewondo regime to begin dialogue with the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium. 

The Anglophone crisis was prominent in the menu during a meeting by the Council of Protestant Churches of Cameroon (CEPCA) that held from the 2nd to the 7th of May 2017.

The General Assembly of the Protestant Churches noted that the Anglophone problem if not properly handled could undermine the unity and peace in Cameroon. The body therefore called on the Government to give priority to approaches that will lead to a peaceful resolution of the conflict. The religious leaders hoped that the regime would pay great attention to the demands of the Anglophone lawyers and teachers and open fraternal dialogue that can contribute to the resumption of schools in Southern Cameroons.

Cepca also requested that there the government should pass an act of parliament legalizing proceedings and all decisions reached to alleviate the concerns expressed by the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium. Reverend Jonas Kemogné, the Secretary General of Cepca was quoted as saying that the Anglophone crisis inspired the choice of the theme of the 46th general assembly meeting.

The Protestant churches in Cameroon say they are frustrated by the fact that church leaders have been dragged to court for matters that have nothing to do with religion. “We criticize this situation. We ask the State to take a particular look at the situation of all those arrested in the English-speaking area. That procedures be legal and accelerated to avoid tensions, “said Rev. Jonas Kemoge.
