Some groups of women based in the North West Region of Cameroon decried repeated violence committed against their husbands and children.
Taking the cue from their South West counterparts, scores of women could be seen carrying placards in Bamenda today, which depict their desperate need for peace to return to the troubled English speaking regions.
Some of the placards which reads; “Give peace a chance”, “We are tired of burying our husband”, “All forces cease fire”, demonstrate their woes and lamentation caused by the current crisis, eyewitness report says.
The President of the South West-North West Women’s Task force who is initiator of the peaceful action has maintained that the demonstration is apolitical.
The worsening Anglophone crisis has created a refugee problem in the regions as many who fled to the bushes and neighboring Nigeria are still scared to return home. For her part, the government of Cameroon has engaged on an emergency humanitarian assistance plan to bring back refugees and IDPs home and established. However since the lofty project was initiated, many English speaking Cameroonians reveal they are yet to benefit from it.
