According to the Vice Rector of the University of Yaounde II, the chosen date by Maurice Kamto to launch a nationwide anti-government protest is not a mere coincidence.
It was on September 22, 2017 that Anglophones all over the Northwest and Southwest regions came out massively in protest against the marginalisation they were being subjected to.
The result of the 22nd September, 2017 protests in the Northwest and Southwest regions led to what is now an open armed struggle between separatist fighters and the government forces in the two regions.
Professor Mathias Owona Nguini thinks that just like in the Northwest and Southwest regions, the CRM’s protests on September 22, 2020 could lead to a generalized armed struggle in the whole country if it goes wrong.
“The date was not chosen at random. September 22, 2017 is when it all started. Now it is September 22, 2020, we want to Ambazonize the whole Cameroon. This is what it is about. It is a process of war,” he declared on local radio, Royal FM.
“You cannot speak of peaceful marches by saying that the purpose for the marches is to remove a constituted power, a constituted authority, an institutional character who has acquired a constitutional mandate, an elective mandate, which elections was sanctioned by the competent body, the Constitutional Council,” he said.
