This regime has never been ashamed or guilty for the way it has been discriminating against anglophones. Let Francophones live with their nation Cameroon.

Kongnso Cyrille Limfenyuy

There are situations that arise, but carry along their solutions. A problem like this easily brings us to thinking of so many resolutions. The easiest way to get to the roots is ignoring the said marginalisation and produce papers for the anglophone public. I think this will have an influence and when the papers are made to carry very interesting informations. The ready anglophone public willing to read will influence the influx of the Francophones who will want to know what the anglophones are doing to suppress their intention always purchase the papers. In any case, it is not a matter that began just today about anglophone marginalisation so why is it only now it is emphasised. Instead solutions were to be brought up and not the outcry of a problem that began as early as 1972. Please fellow writers and publishers, as at this time you were supposed to have worked out a frame work for the attaining of these sloutions,so if you have not, it is equally a failure on your parts. Your problem has never had any focus because you have never addressed it directly to the anglophones themselves. Sensitise the public and they will play a role no matter how minute.

Joseph Nkeze

Every appointed minister holds a meeting like the one with Publishers. He will take notes and promise to solve the problems. In effect, nothing will happen. After a few months, he will start looking for ways and means to line his pockets before he is removed by the President.
Enters the newly appointed minister. He summons all Editors and publishers of the private press organs. He presents to them the new script to be rehearsed, and promises he will do everthing in his power to ensure that the casts are invited to present their parts. He will assure you that he will provide the enabling environment for the play to be staged. Cameras are brought to showcase his determination to succeed. Afterall, he will have a spot in the evening news. Even if nothing happens after that, nobody will hold him accountable.
The Government has its own newspapers that publish what they want. They use some of these newspapers as conduit for siphooning money from the treasury. It is a game where if anglophone Journalists have to sit and wait, the director of the play will come after several weeks and months of rehearsing that the play cannot go on. Forming stronger unions is the way to fight this government. Coercion is the way to go. That is the only language they understand.
I always tell the story of the two children: one always agressive, and the other indolent. When it is time to go to school, the agressive one tells the father that if he does not get all he wants, he will subject to the biggest humiliation. He even threatens his life. The father will definitely give all he wants.
The father will now go to the indolent child."you know your father has been working hard, and has very little money', he will placate. 'Just take this and when you go to school, I will send some money to you.' This will not happen. It is the same with government.
