Russian entrepreneur Pavel Kuzmenko, who lives and works in Uganda, tells how it may look from the inside.
1 Oct Cameroon celebrated a national holiday — unification Day (of French Cameroon and British southern Cameroon in 1961). However, that is a cause for celebration, not everyone agrees. So the separatists from the English North-West and South-Western States are demanding secession and the creation of the state of Ambazonia. Mass protests quickly turned into clashes with the police and then the army began to shoot the protesters from helicopters.
It may seem that the Cameroon separatists were inspired by the example of the Catalans and the Kurds. In fact, the problem of the English-speaking minority exists in the country since the creation of the modern Cameroonian state in 1961.
