Cameroon: Gov’t promises to ease school resumption in restive Anglophone region

mercredi, 01 septembre 2021 16:53 Ariane Foguem

The Government of Cameroon through the voice of the Governor of the North West region, badly hit by the Anglophone crisis for close to five years has promised to beef up security around schools to ensure an effective kick-off of the 2021/2022 academic year come September 6 in that part of the country.

Governor Adolphe Lele Lafrique made the promise Tuesday August 31 during the sector conference of the secondary education sector in the North West region.

He told the education stakeholders that tight security measures will be put in place in schools across the North West region ahead of the 2021/2022 academic year.

For such a move to be successful, Adolphe Lele Lafrique said the population must play their role that of supporting efforts put in place by the Government to guarantee the effective start of classes from September 6.

“All measures will be taken to ease class resumption but we are hoping that the population should mobilize to accompany the administration, stakeholders, and security services in that regard”, Governor Adolphe Lele Afrique said.

The education stakeholders on their part revealed that apart from security concerns, all is almost set for the start of the academic year.  Last academic year, 177 schools were operational out of 555 in the secondary education sector in the region.

 

The fate of Education in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon

The Anglophone regions of Cameroon have since late 2016 witnessed a socio-political crisis that has deteriorated overtime and led to violent clashes between armed forces, loss of lives and property, internal and external displacement and a growing climate of fear and uncertainty.

The current crisis has its roots in grievances that date back to the early 1960s. Recent events led to the escalation of violence and armed confrontations between government forces and non-state armed groups who want the total independence of the two English-speaking regions.

Education has been one of the greatest victims as much of this violence is targeted at schools, with pupils and teachers frequently facing attacks. Armed groups have regularly attacked schools, in the course of which many including pupils and teachers lost their lives and others survived with severe trauma.

Government has been battling hard to reassure families on effective security in schools at the start of academic years since 2017. Separatists fighting the adopted a school boycott/disruption strategy to put pressure on government. This has had a severe impact on children’s ability to attend school and learn in a normal atmosphere.
