The Anglophone Side of the Anglophone Problem and Crisis in Cameroon



Kijem Joseph Yuh (PhD)






Article No.: 012521013

Type: Short comm.



This work is an attempt to show that, paradoxally, Anglophones in Cameroon constitute part of their own problem. In this country, Francophones and Anglophones have not concretely succeeded, so far, to overcome their common major problems (constitutional, institutional, social, cultural, linguistic, etc.) inherited from the union between the two parts of Cameroon (former Southern Cameroons and former East Cameroon). A very insidious dimension of these problems is what I refer to as the Anglophone side of the Anglophone Problem, a problem which has unfortunately developed into bloodshed. The said side comprises issues relating to the Public Service, life within the armed forces, politics, life in trade unions and other associations and institutions, the Bilingualism Week and the current Anglophone Crisis which is rocking Cameroon. There is urgent need for Cameroonian Anglophones to come together and handle the said problem and crisis judiciously, else it shall soon be too late.
