Whether accused of a crime or not, mass arrest victims are treated the same way; under the guise of fishing out Separatist fighters. Many locals, especially those who cannot afford the bribe, or who refuse to bribe their way out, end up behind bars in police and gendarmerie stations.
Angered by the cruel manner in which children were slaughtered on the altar of education, many Cameroonians failed to ask the basic questions about what really happened at the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy Fiango- Kumba, on October 24.
The city of Kumba was near standstill on Thursday, as hundreds of mourners trooped to the Amusement Park to pay last respects to the seven caskets that were lined up at the funeral ground, images of the seven children, described as martyrs, were displayed before each coffin.
The workshop was themed on looking at the type of synergies to develop between all the actors for the better promotion of press freedom and human rights in Cameroon. With skilled facilitators and resource persons, the participants were drilled on various international and national Human Rights instruments, which serve as guides on that Human Rights are all about.
