Southern Cameroons: Biya and The Church Marry In Hypocrisy

The Euphoria following Paul Biya’s August 30th decree releasing citizens of Southern Cameroons that were abusively and illegally held in prisons in Yaoundé for over 8 months, is simply much ado about nothing, an epitome of hypocrisy. The same scheme that led to such excitement was used in the Internet blackout period a few months back, and has been used countless times in the past.

If the promise of Africa is to…

Boko Haram attacks kill 400 since April, claims Amnesty

A spurt in attacks by Boko Haram Islamists has claimed nearly 400 lives since April in Nigeria and Cameroon, double the figure of the previous five months, Amnesty said today. The increasing use of suicide bombers — often young women and girls forced to carry and detonate explosives in crowded areas — has killed at least 381 civilians in the two countries, the rights group said in a statement. “Boko Haram is once again committing war crimes on a huge scale, exemplified by the depravity of forcing young girls to…
