Mancho Bibixy Pays The Heavy Price Of The Anglophone Crisis – Denise Epote

The former presenter of the newspaper on the national television of Cameroon believes that through the arrest of this English-speaking leader, the local authorities showed their inability to understand the situation.


On May 25, 2018, the Yaoundé Military Court sentenced the leader of the Anglophone protest Mancho Bibixy to 15 years in prison. He was found guilty of “terrorism, hostility against the fatherland, secession, revolution and insurrection”.

With the other five people sentenced at the same time, the radio host was sentenced to pay a fine of 268 million CFA francs to the state and the civil party. Sums in addition to 31.7 million CFA francs representing the costs of proceedings.
Mancho Bibixy Pays The Heavy Price Of The Anglophone Crisis – Denise Epote
Asked about this verdict last weekend during a TV5MONDE international TV program, Cameroonian journalist Denise Epote explained that the convict was severely punished because of his intransigence.

“Why is Bibixy paying the heavy price today? I think it’s because he’s one of the most radical separatists. Because the president of the self-proclaimed Republic of Ambazonia has been extradited to Cameroon.

He expressed his radicality with acts of violence. There was a drift, a progression in the claims. First, the corporatist movements.
Then arrests, targeted attacks on state property. It is Mancho Bibixy who claims the most this aggressiveness, “argued the TV5MONDE presenter.

She added that the power wanted to “mark the blow by stopping”. An attitude that she said did not help. “Where the power is sinful is not to have realized this background that there was in this part of English,” she analyzed.
