1/ #BiyaSpeech on the #AnglophoneCrisis is an example of how the crisis got to where it is today. Gov of #Cameroon claims that all initial demands made in 2016 have been met- and that Anglophone marginalization is a myth- did not address the grave human rights abuses committed.
2/ Biya reiterated the claim that arson, rape, kidnappings & targeted killings have only been committed by #Ambazonia secessionists. In reality- his forces, especially the BIR, were the first to carryout such abuses, worsening the #AnglophoneCrisis .
3/ Biya hinted that the Gov. does not support the Swiss initiative for dialogue & instead announced his own initiative. This initiative will be politicized and will evidently not include members of the #SouthernCameroons diaspora. In short- it will go no where.
4/ He made clear that there will be no direct dialogue between his government & #Ambazonia leaders- the only way to cease hostilities. Further, he made clear that pardons for imprisoned secessionists will not happen- at least anytime soon. He also claimed their trials were fair..
5/ In essence-this speech made one thing clear. The hard-line approach used thus far to address the #AnglophoneCrisis will continue. Radicalizing more civilians & driving them to take up arms. The situation will evidently continue to deteriorate at expense of civilians.
