The Honourable Member of Parliament for Nkambe, Awudu Mbaya Cyprian, has drawn the attention of Cameroon’s National Assembly, to the sufferings of the Anglophone community, stating that it has been neglected unlike the general attention given to Boko Haram insurgency in the Far North region.

Mr. Awudu Mbaya, was speaking at the National Assembly few days ago, where he blamed the National Assembly for failing to act as a united force towards finding lasting solutions to the Anglophone crisis.

He said MPs had stood as one when Boko Haram attacks led to the displacement of persons in the Far North, and kept thousands of children out of school. To this, he said they had all financially contributed to the fight against Boko Haram but today, the National Assembly finds it so hard to discuss the Anglophone crisis.

“ Two years ago, it was the case of the Far North region. We all converged here like one parliament and discussed the matter, and even contributed , supporter the displaced, and military. We even told our military to avoid human rights abuses…but we have refused to converge and discuss what is happening in the NW and SW”, cried the MP.

He expressed regrets that Parliamentarians are seemingly not worried about the crisis, which according to him, witnesses the death of some 40 to 50 persons each day.

“ It appears we do not worry about what is happening in our country but other countries are worried about us…We are pretending as if we don’t know what is happening “, he added.

His reaction comes prior to the adoption of a bill relating to the establishment, organisation and functioning of the Cameroon Human Rights commission. The SDF MP challenged the roles of the institution, stating that there was a need for it to denounce abuses.
