Cameroon Parliament calls for end to violence in Anglophone regions

The Presidents of the both the Upper and Lower Houses of Parliament called for peace and harmony amongst Cameroonians while condemning acts of babarism during the opening of the June parliamentary session.

Parliament has been very silent and dormant since the crisis broke out in the two English-speaking Regions of Cameroon but hit hard on the subject at the opening of the second ordinary legislative session.

At the Upper House of Parliament, Senate President Marcel Niat Njifenji condemned acts of barbarism that have jeopardised peace and living together in the North West and South West Regions of the country and called on Senators to seek for peaceful solutions to the crisis.

He also called on the population to guard against fake news propagated on social media aimed at manipulating the public.

On his part, the President of the National Assembly, Cavaye Yeguie Djibril praised the spirit Cameroonians showed during the May 20 celebrations and said only through unity can the country move forward.

The National Assembly session could be the last for some of the parliamentarians with the legislative elections looming around the corner.
