At least 6 young men have been massacred by government military forces in Mautu, a village under Muyuka subdivision, South West region of Cameroon.

Killed alongside a series of burnings and destruction, these young men, all farmers, were gunned down and left in their own pool of blood.

On January 22, we published an editorial on 2020’s First 22 Days ; How the Cameroon government mollycoddles the military which is intensifying burnings in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon.

This January, the regions have witnessed the most intensified burnings with disturbing images of homeless kids whose parents have either been killed or made to flee for their lives.

In Bali Nyonga Subdivision, a villager who witnessed one of the burnings firsthand spoke to us on phone. He explained how the military invaded the village and a gun battle began with separatist fighters.

He and other villagers fled for their lives.

“The whole village was in total confusion, the boys came from the bushes to target the military, we were caught in the middle and everyone ran to his own direction” he spoke about the incident which happened on Sunday morning January 19, 2020.

Bali’s incident happened just one week after another military invasion in Awing

With heightened raids and burnings in the Anglophone regions, there is a huge pointer that government action of mollycoddling the military has fueled the intensified burnings, 22 days into 2020.

The burnings come after President Paul Biya in his new year’s speech renewed threats to battle separatists in the Anglophone regions.

“For those who persist in going down the wrong road and using violence , we will have no other choice than to combat them in order to protect all our fellow citizens. Our Defense and security forces will once again perform their duty with restraint, but without weakness. I wish to reassure them of my full support and high esteem.” – Paul Biya said firmly.

Three years on, the Biya regime has failed to solve Cameroon Anglophone crisis.

More than three thousand people have been recorded dead and half a million displaced.

For peace to reign, Cameroonians are expecting the regime to announce peace measures to the Cameroon Anglophone crisis, including freedom for detained Anglophone leaders and all incarcerated as a result of the crisis, demilitarization of the Anglophone regions and an all inclusive dialogue with key separatist forces.
