49 years ago on May 20, 1972,President Ahmadou Ahidjo announced a change from a federal system of government to a unitary state in Cameroon
That gave birth to the Republic of Cameroon
Today Cameroon celebrates the 49th edition of the referendum under the theme “Army And Nation: Together to meet the challenges of health, security and preserve the peace, stability and prosperity of Cameroon”.
The country won’t have the usual public celebrations due to the Covid-19 pandemic
But the union between the French and the English regions have been challenged by the ongoing Anglophone crisis
As war continues to strike the English regions everyday, news of gun battles, explosions, raids, kidnap and at least one person is killed daily
4 years and counting, the crisis seems far from peace as the government and separatists have stayed at their fighting ends
