Detained at the Muea Police Station, Wazizi is in custody because the separatist group, Ambazonia fighters set up a camp in his farm.

Canal 2’s political desk editor, Dominic Meme reported that “Wazizi has denied all the allegations against him but the police commissioner says he cannot grant bail because the administration of South west “…is on the case closely”

In his previous reports, Wazizi regularly commented on the socio-political crisis in the restive North West and South West regions of Cameroon though he has not practiced for months, given that his TV got closed.

Journalism in Cameroon remains a hideous task as media workers become victims of harassment for their reports. Those who choose to remain in the Anglophone regions increasingly prefer to report on non-controversial issues like health, education and infrastructure and avoid discussing the ongoing conflict.

The Anglophone crisis which began as protest over marginalisation claims voiced by lawyers and teachers soon transformed into an armed conflict when dialogue wasn’t forth coming.

A journalist like Paul Chouta remains in jail for his critical online reporting. Another journalist Raymond Ndingana who recently granted an interview to Deutsche Welle recounted :

“The last time I fell into the hands of the military, they almost destroyed my working tools simply because they asked me a question in French and I responded in English. They got angry and called me all sorts of names.”

With many journalists now scared of reporting, there are fears that the most critical stories in Anglophone regions will go unreported.

According to Human Rights Watch (HRW), Cameroonian authorities have regularly tortured and held incommunicado detainees arrested in the government’s crackdown on the armed separatist movement.
