He explained his thinking by stating that because the administration is no longer colonial, it is serving a people. This people are angry according to him. He thinks that contrary to what Laurent Esso said in Brussels “our whole history is between 1916 and 2017“. “We are caught up with shortcuts,” he said.

Bekolo, who denounced French arrogance, said that Francophone Cameroonians were victims of French colonization. “In our idea of the State, we have been masters. We speak of 400,000 deaths in the war of national liberation. And finally, one forgets that this arrogance has rubbed off on us. When we think of administration, we think of the administration of the one who crushed us. But anglophones have not experienced this. When we deal with them we carry this kind of colonization with its arrogance, with its violence! This is where we should, and I come back to that idea, excuse ourselves, “he says, not without prescribing the rejection of this” model. ” He believes that the images of the embassy in Ottawa that had secessionists show that the country is divided, is like a country in civil war.

The discontent, known in Yaoundé as the “anglophone problem”, is fanned by the perceived lack of investment by the government; a lack of political advancement for anglophones; and the general difficulty faced in the job market by those for whom French is not their first language.

Public unrest began in October 2016. It started as a strike by lawyers and then teachers over the “francophonisation” of the regions’ legal and education systems. It quickly coalesced into a general outcry over poor governance, “cultural genocide”, and the heavy-handed crackdown by the authorities.
