Herman Jay Cohen says Biya regime must opt for federalism or outright secession…
The former US assistant Secretary of state for African Affairs and erstwhile US ambassador to the Gambia has cautioned the government of Cameroon to seek urgent solutions to the Anglophone crisis or face secession.
His call was published on his tweeter page: “Time is running out for the Cameroon Government in the anglophone regions. Return to the pre-1972 federation within one year, or face total secession into “Ambazonia.””
The government of Cameroon has however maintained that the form of the state is non negotiable. 86-year-old Herman Jay Cohen assisted in resolving some conflicts in Africa.
He brokered an end to the Eritrean-Ethiopian War in 1991, and conflicts in Angola and Mozambique.
