There is urgent need for the Government of Cameroon to free all those arrested in connection to the uprisings in the English-speaking regions or the country will plunge into a civil war, activists, Mancho Bibixy told a military court in Yaounde on Thursday.
In one of the marathon court sessions that has been going on since the last year, Mancho Bibixy and seven others were back in court to answer charges against them amongst which are secession and hostility to the state.
“I have a heavy heart because Cameroon is on a brink of a civil war. We find ourselves in this situation because our politicians have failed in finding tangible solutions to our problems,” Mancho Bibixy told the judge while urging authorities to free all arrested and resume dialogue.
Mancho Bibixy also told the court if he and other anglophone detainees are freed, they will iwork hard to bring peace to the troubled English-speaking regions of the country.
