Cameroon Rights Group Calls For Schools Re-Opening
Schools in Cameroon’s conflict-ridding English-speaking regions are scheduled to open September fourth for the academic year. Rights groups have accused the separatist group Republic of Ambazonia of disrupting education by attacking schools. The separatists have accused the Cameroon military of setting up camps near schools. Now, religious and civil society leaders in the region are calling for resumption of education. Rev. Dr. Nditemeh Charlemagne, the Executive President of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, tells VOA’s James Butty, the stakeholders should create an enabling environment for schools to open because education is a human right.
