President Paul Biya on Monday, 24th January created a commission for the promotion of bilingualism and multiculturalism  in Cameroon. It was announced over state-owned CRTV during 7:00 pm news. The Commission shall be “responsible for promotingetting multiculturalism  in the country.”

The decree adds that the Commission will do this “with a view to maintaining peace, consolidating the country’s national unity and strengthening the people’s willingness and day to day experience with prospects of living together.”

The 15-man Commission will be answerable directly to President Biya himself though the announcement said it is autonomous. It is tasked with forging a stronger sense of unity, bilingualism , and oneness in Cameroon.  However, pundits, as well as ordinary Cameroonians, have been swift to lambast it, saying it falls short of addressing the demands of Anglophones in the country. The move is one of many unpopular moves by gov’t to address the deteriorating situation in the NW and SW which started with teachers and lawyers and now has beenrelayed to the population since the arrest of the leaders.
