Cameroon – Anglophone Crisis: US Congress Demands It’s Government Probe Into Anglophone Crisis

Members of the Congress in the United States of America have written a strongly worded letter to the US States Department demanding them to probe into the Anglophone crisis which they say has been taking a different proportion in Cameroon.


The letter signed by Congress men in Maryland Anthony G. Brown and Jarsie Raskin to the US Secretary of State, Rex W. Tillerson indicates that since late 2016 the Cameroon government has been persecuting Anglophones who form a minority of the population with about 100 arrests.

In the opening statements, they called on the US State Department to take appropriate actions to solve the issue.

It partially reads, “As you know unrest has increased in Cameroon since late 2016, when thousands of members of the country’s Anglophones community began demonstrating in opposition to policy changes that have further marginalized the community.”

They insisted on a prompt action saying that they are worried with the over 13,000 Marylanders born in Cameroon. Via CIN
