Cameroonian Prime Minister Philemon Yang has appealed for calm from the anglophone minority southwest of the country, who have been demonstrating for several weeks now against “marginalization” from the government.

“Cameroon was a federal state up to 1972, when president Ahidjo manipulated the constitution, made a fake referendum to make Cameroon a unity state. All we are asking for today is not SDF propaganda, RDPC propaganda, or SCNC propaganda,” lamented Ogonu Enonchong, a resident of the southwestern region.

Yang has also rejected their referendum demands to return to federalism, terming the move as ‘unacceptable’.

“In Cameroon, the constitution is one and indivisible. We appeal to all our children to go back to school. Tomorrow, why not? Dear children, your place is at school to prepare and educate yourself for the future of your country,” the Prime Minister said.

On Monday thousands of teachers and lawyers in English-speaking regions had gone on strike accusing the government of trying to marginalise them by imposing the French language on their schools and courts.

Anglophones in the country have long decried exclusion from state jobs as a result of their limited French language skills.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.

Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.

“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”

It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”

The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
