Cameroon – Anglophone Crisis: We Are Behind Frustration of SDF Senators and MPs in Buea – Mayor Patrick Ekema

The Mayor of the Buea council in Fako division, South West Region, Patrick Ekema Esunge, has disclosed that they planned the delay of some SDF Members of Parliament and Senators sometime back in December 2016 to prevent them from holding a peaceful gathering at the Molyko stadium, The Post newspaper has reported.

The newspaper quotes the mayor as saying, “We hatched and executed plans to frustrate the move of SDF Members of Parliament to stage a march on December 5, 2016 from the molyko Omnisport stadium to the governor’s office which would have provoked untold consequences to the State.”

Patrick Ekema made the statements in a council session while enumerating his successes so far as Mayor of the council during a session.

SDF Senators and MPs were trapped at the Parliamentarian Flat for close to two hours as some thugs hired by the mayor besieged the premises promising hell on the law makers.

They brandished placards asking the August guests to go and march in Bamenda and not Buea which they say is a peaceful town.

It took the intervention of the divisional Officer for Buea, Kouam Wokam Paul for the law makers to finally go to the stadium for their exercise.

The plan by the mayor succeeded to an extend because the SDF militants met at the stadium with Ni John FRU Ndi on stage talking on the Anglophone problems.

Patrick Ekema has been noted for resisting the so called struggle by some unidentified men who are fighting for the restoration of the state of Southern Cameroon.

Operation ghost town has met with such resistance from the mayor who has been shutting down shops whose owners respect the ghost town.
