By Ken Neba, Yaounde, Cameroon – Thursday November 7, 2019.
The President of Cameroon’s Lower House of Parliament also known as the National Assembly has convened an ordinary session of the house, National Telegraph has been told.
Cavaye’ Yéguié Djibril said in a statement dated Thursday November 7, 2019, that the session has been called after consultation with Cameroon’s President, Paul Biya.
The session, according to the release, a copy of which National Telegraph has obtained will hold on Tuesday November 12, 2019 as from 11AM.
Many political pundits are of the opinion that the crucial Anglophone crisis should preoccupy deliberations at the session. But the Parliament has so long ignored these discussions.
The Central African country is embattled with its two English-speaking regions of the North West and South West engulfed in an armed conflict with a demand by majority of Anglophones in the North West and South West for a separate state called Ambazonia.
Many have accused lawmakers of staying mute in the face of a crisis that has led to thousands of deaths, torching of hundreds of villages, millions of displaced people and thousands of political prisoners with insecurity on the rise.
