Image
  By Raymond Dingana P oliticians from the English speaking regions of Cameroon, have come under fire from the population for being the reason why Cameroonians continue to die in the NW/SW regions. According to a school of thought, the politicians are sleeping on the solutions to the crisis rocking the North West and South West Regions of the country, because of greed, and the lack of love for those whose interests they are bound to protect.

We are only out to feed our families and the many internally displaced persons under our roofs. Restricting us from circulating in urban areas is a subtle way to put us out of business .let the administration handle the present situation and see if insecurity will not be curbed." Chia said. Tom, a rider we met at up station said, the powers that be know where the real problem. "The crisis affecting the two English speaking regions of the country is behind the high level of insecurity. They know those that are fermenting troub
