I am impressed that Dr. Banda is talking straight but this has to be followed by real action. We need access to the Commission’s work. We know that the Commission has not operated with any independence since its creation and as such has no credibility in the eyes of many. An institution like the National Human Rights Commission needs a website which should contain basic documents on the promotion and protection of human rights nationally and internationally. The laws setting up the commission also has to be made public, including all the Commission’s reports. It is not enough to list the achievements of the Commission just by words of mouth. We want to have access to information on its activities including past, current, and future projects; information on how to report abuses or seek redress; and information on how the Commission has achieved results in the past. At the moment, the Commission to me seems to be a secret agency of the government, put in place to seek the approbation of the international community.

We want a dynamic and AUTONOMOUS human rights commission which can promote and protect human rights by safeguarding civil liberties and ensuring that people can obtain recourse and redress in the face of injustice. Although a regional office in the South West and other provinces (as planned) is a laudable initiative, I am afraid that the Commission as a whole is still unable to function without political will. What we need is a totally new law, to be enacted by the National Assembly (NOT A PRESIDENTIAL DEGREE) setting up a Human Rights Commission that will be truly independent. Such a Commission should have credible human rights experts as members rather than Presidential nominees, who pay allegiance to their Boss whose administration is the No. 1 violator of human rights in the country.

I am delighted to know the study of human rights soon will be known at all levels of education because it is a shame to note that if a student is not reading law at university or in the technical form form of education in Cameroon he/she may never real come to truely understand what are human rights, so thanks to efforts of thinkers, and organizations who are making this dream be true, but i must remark that the trein of enforcement is really slow, We the Cameroon youths, children, parents we need to be more informed for a better Cameroon and to make better choices of What we want and need, especially as the up coming 2011 presidential election is coming up.CAMEROONIANS stand up for your rights,We the youths want and effectives Human Right Commission, since 1990 when your draft was set up and in 2004 you went into force, here we are watching you, what are your achievements, even the detainees need to know they have right,alot still needs to be done
my regards
