This Monday, September 30, 2019 at the Palais des Congrès in Yaounde, Joseph Dion Ngute, the Cameroonian Prime Minister, in front of more than 1,500 delegates, opened the work of the national dialogue which should lead to a final resolution of the conflict in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon , a conflict between the government army and separatist rebels.
This dialogue was announced by the President of the Republic, Paul Biya, on September 10, 2019. This exchange ceremony will take place from September 30 to October 4, 2019.
The themes selected by the government are eight: bilingualism, cultural diversity, social cohesion, the education system, the judicial system, decentralization and local development. It will also address the various problems faced by the English-speaking minority community in the country.
This wide-ranging consultation on these different issues will definitively resolve this internal conflict which has caused more than 3,000 deaths in the northwest and southwest of the country.
However, some of the great figures who were at the root of the protest for the Anglophone cause unfortunately decided not to participate in this event. These include leaders of armed groups like Ebenezer Akwanga and Cho Ayaba.
