Cameroon's Prime Minister, Joseph Dion Ngute, who is himself an English-speaker, recently began a visit to the troubled Anglophone regions as part of government efforts to find a lasting solution to the separatist crisis there.

The emergency was sparked in late 2016 against percieved marginalisation of the minority English-speakers by the majority Francophone government. It then escalated into an armed conflict at the close of 2017.

The PM's arrival in Bamenda was greeted by a wailing scene staged by scores of women in what they call a lamentation campaign basically aimed at urging the protagonists to end the conflict.

From Bamenda, Alphonse Tebeck has this report.
