CPDM member of parliament, Senator Regina Mundi has been recounting her ordeal while in Amba captivity.
In an interview with newsmen in Bamenda shortly after her release, Senator Regina Mundi described how her kidnapping and eventual release from captivity has left her speechless.
“As a teacher politicians, I should not lack words, but there are times when the emotions are too heavy,” said Senator Mundi in tears.
The lawmaker of the ruling Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement Party, CPDM went on to thank the government, security officials – particularly the head of state who secured her release.
Mundi was kidnapped on April 30th 2022 in Bamenda, by separatists fighting for a break-away state called Ambazonia.
Without any precision, the Senator said she has seen enough to be told in just a day.
“This country, this region is at war, real war,” she maintained.
“It is not easy, it is really difficult for the military,” said Senator Mundi.
She continued that:
“In our country, everyone is treated fairly and equally.”
Other captives were released alongside Senator Mundi.
Separatists described her as one of those “enabling the Yaounde regime to marginalise and oppress the Anglophone population.
Earlier today, the communication head of the defence ministry in Cameroon said the Senator was released during a special operation between May 29 and 30th 2022.
Her abduction further sheds light on the deteriorating human rights situation in the Anglophone Regions.
She summarised her experienced in one word: loosely translated as So much to say, constrained by time.
