'In Cameroon there is a freedom of expression which is quite extraordinary'

Speaking on the antennas of vox Africa, the Swiss-Cameroonian activist returned to the political situation in Cameroon thus making a parallelism with the situation in Ivory Coast.

The pan-African activist returned to the political life of Cameroon. She compared the situation in Côte d'Ivoire and at home. “I created a Hashtag a few years ago on Twitter and Facebook to talk about Cameroon of which I am quite proud. It was "leaning country hashtag". Because as in many African countries elsewhere this is not a peculiarity of Cameroon, unfortunately the same things are reflected everywhere. There is enormous potential, enormous creativity among the populations.

And then there is a system that has rotten everything. Which infiltrates like magma and pulls everything down. I have a lot of regrets for Cameroon because unlike Côte d'Ivoire, in Cameroon there is still a freedom of expression which is quite extraordinary, I know there are some who will perhaps push screams of outlandish but ... There are several private television channels, people are able to go debate all day long on television, to express themselves in terms, sometimes which are perhaps even a little shocking . Our only common enemy across Africa is poverty. We must not be distracted by the palaver that people are going to put in place, ”she said.
