The World Health Organisation (WHO) has carried out a giant project, to mitigate the effects of the ongoing armed conflict on persons with disabilities in the affected North West and South West regions.
Education has been one of the most affected sectors in Cameroon, since the outset of the ongoing Anglophone secessionist conflict in 2016.
Some aid workers in Cameroon say belligerents in the Anglophone armed conflict have continued to show utter disregard for International Humanitarian Law. They decried the behavior recently in Kumba, during this year’s commemoration of the World Humanitarian Day.
Leaders of some Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in the South West region have been drilled on how to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic at the community level.
This was during a training session on Tuesday August 18, organised by Reach Out, a local NGO aimed at empowering communities, especially in the domains of health, education, among others.
“Tu es Nigerien?” A lady asked me whether I was a Nigerian in early 2016 because I spoke English. The funniest thing to me was that she asked in Cameroon’s capital, Yaounde.
According to the preamble of the Constitution of the Republic of Cameroon, the first article, sub (3) states: “The official languages of the Republic of Cameroon shall be English and French, both languages having the same status. The State shall guarantee the promotion of bilingualism throughout the country. It shall endeavour to protect and promote national languages”.
I didn’t want to argue with the lady, I decided to ask her why she tagged me Nigerian and her answer was that I spoke English, unlike other customers who spoke French.
