The National Commission for Human Rights and Freedoms( NCHRF) has recently called for an effective dialogue on the Anglophone struggle which has been raging the North West and South West Regions.

In the presentation of its reports from 2016 to 2017, the body noted that the state of human rights in Cameroon experienced a drop.  

Dr. Chemuta Divine Banda, president of the commission stated that thousands of Cameroonians are stuck between secessionists and the police and they are subject to a routine of loss of property and some lives.

The President showed concern for this state of affairs in the English speaking regions of Cameroon and called for the state to provide a perfect solution to her citizen’s woes. 

However, Cameroonians anxiously wait for the government to yield to this call as the commission has intensified an increasing call for dialogue in Cameroon.

it has since the beginning of last year called for constructive dialogue in search for solutions  to the crisis in the North west and South West regions of Cameroon.

Law No. 2004/16 of 22/07/2004 to set up the NCHRF made it an independent institution for consultation, monitoring, evaluation,dialogue,concerted action,promotion and protection in the domain of human rights. 

This mission statement places dialogue at the center of its stated actions.

As a human rights defender, NCHRF stands against violence and encourages the use of dialogue in conflict resolution noting that violence often leads to destruction while peaceful and constructive dialogue builds up.

The body suggests that Cameroon has experienced various violations of human rights. 

This implied that these violations are not registered only in the context of the Anglophone crisis.

“In its classification, human rights violations remain dominated by Cameroonians’ difficulty in accessing land, arbitrary arrests, torture, and lack of better working conditions,” reports Le Jour newspaper.

However, it notes that several arbitrary arrests and detentions arose out of the Anglophone crisis. And these arrests and detentions constitute violations of the right to life and to physical and moral integrity.
