Due to the ill-treatment of Cameroonians in Tunisia following the xenophobic policy of the Tunisian government, the national President of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (CRM), Maurice Kamto, has shown solicitude.
In a post made on February 26, 2023, he requested government’s immediate action to save the lives of Cameroonians in Tunisia as reports revealed that some have already lost their lives under unknown circumstances and others in distress.
“The government of Cameroon has an obligation to ensure the protection of the lives of Cameroonians within and outside our borders,” Maurice Kamto wrote.
Maurice Kamto’s plea comes up after racist attack and poor treatment clearly faced by Cameroonians in Tunisia.
It should be note that the President of Tunisia, Kais Saied, had earlier said “illegal immigration into the country is a plot aimed at modifying the demographics of the country so that Tunisia be considered an African country only and not an Arab and Muslim country.”
President Saied added that illegal immigrants are the perpetrators of illegal crimes and therefore immediate actions must be taken at all levels to chase them out of Tunisia.
Embassies of Cameroon, Mali and Burkina Faso amongst others have beckoned on thier citizens living in Tunisia and want to return to thier countries to get in touch with them for thier fast and safe return.
While expressing empathy Kamto believes these immigrants are human beings whose protection must be taken into great consideration as they are in a state of dilemma.
