Anglophone crisis: this is the new reaction from Maurice Kamto

In a tweet this Sunday, May 17, 2020, the leader of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (Mrc) spoke of the case of a baby disemboweled in the English-speaking area of ​​the country. He also mentioned the assassination of the mayor of Mamfe by separatist Ambazonian fighters.

Following the recurrence of cases of violence in the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon, North-West and South-West (NoSo) in this particular period marked by the mobilization of energies for the fight against Covid-19, the opponent politician who came second in the 2018 presidential election decided to speak out. Referring to the cases of a ripped baby and the mayor of Mamfe shot dead by separatists, Maurice Kamto wants an independent investigation into these crimes. He also noted the urgent need for a cease-fire. The MRC leader maintains that an inclusive political dialogue is essential. 
“A gutted baby and a mayor murdered in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon. An independent investigation into these crimes is necessary. A ceasefire agreement between the parties to the civil war is imperative, as is a true inclusive national political dialogue, "wrote Professor Maurice Kamto on his Twitter page.

As a reminder, the brand new mayor of Mamfe, 35 years old, was killed on Sunday, May 10, 2020 in the morning. According to details, made by the Crtv the same day, he was shot by secessionists in Eshobi in his village. In fact, the separatists ambushed him on the pretext of wanting to lay down his arms. These separatists convinced the mayor to respond favorably to their invitation. It was, however, a trap that ultimately cost the life of the new mayor of Mamfe.
