Cameroon: Akere Muna mocks proposal by Musonge commission to ban use of Anglophone, Francophone

Akere Muna

Since the proposal by the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism to ban the use of Anglophone and Francophone, several reactions have been flowing, most slamming the proposal.

Former Presidential candidate Akere Muna has equally joined the debate, rather making mockery of the proposal saying abolishing the two words will mean Cameroon withdraws from the Francophonie.

He then went further to slam the Bilingualism Commission for leaving the object and chasing the shadow with its lateest proposals.

Last week during a forum in Yaounde, the Commission made several proposals amongst them the creation of a ‘Ministry of Living Together and Multiculturalism’ as well as the baning of the words ‘Anglophones’ and ‘Francophones’, describing them as foreign.

The proposals which will be sent to the Head of State have already met heavy criticisms from a section of the media as well as from political analysts.
