The High Commission of Cameroon to South Africa has urged separatists living in h country to discard the ideology and embrace unity.
The High Commissioner, Anu Solomon Azoh in a release cited the November 30, 2018 creation of the National Committee for Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration (NCDDR) of ex combattants of Boko Haram and armed groups in the Anglophone regions.
The process, he remarked, “seeks to give opportunity to combattants in the aforementioned crisis areas and to those who support them within and outside Cameroon to respond favourably to the Head of State’s offer of peace by laying down their weapons.”
Following what he termed “open and honest discussion and exchanges,” the High Commissioner to South Africa said “many have expressed a change of heart but wonder whether they can be taken seriously by Cameroonian authorities.”
Others still, he went on, have expressed doubt in the entire process.
“All compatriots involved in this conflict and wishing to accept the Olive Branch in the outstretched hand of the President of the Republic His Excellency Paul Biya should feel at ease to approach the Cameroon High Commission in Pretoria,” the diplomat urged. Those who do, he promised, would be given directives on joining the movement for peace as well as getting pardon.
The current call is one of many made by the Cameroon government to separatists, home and abroad.
Many however remain reticent, and have urged government to rather seek a more inclusive dialogue with them in a neutral location.
