Conflict in cameroon keeps schools shut

Conflict in cameroon keeps schools shut

The conflict in cameroon has overtime led to enforcing a lockdown across cities, towns and villages in the North-West and South-West regions to ensure schools remain shut for a fourth academic year in a row.

The regions are heavily militarised, with troops battling insurgents who use hit-and-run tactics.

Schools were due to open on 2 Septemba – instead parents and children have been fleeing their homes in their thousands as they fear an escalation of the conflict.

Children abducted

Most schools in the two regionsincluding in villageshave been empty for three years, with buildings covered by long grass.

Katika baadhi ya maeneo, the government deployed troops to guard classrooms but with the army being the main enemy of the separatists, this increased the risk of attacks by separatist gunmen.

The United Nations Children’s Fund, Unicef, anasema the ban on education has affected about 600,000 watoto, na zaidi ya 80% of schools shut na angalau 74 schools destroyed in the troubled regions.

In one incident, 80 pupils, their principal and a teacherwho defied the lockdownwere kidnapped last year, before being released about a week later.

Separatist fighters denied involvement, but the government blamed them for the abductions.

The conflict has its roots in the government’s decision to increase the use of French in schools and courts in the mainly English-speaking regions in 2016.


It triggered mass protests and morphed into a rebellion the following year as some civiliansangry that the government deployed troops to crush the proteststook up arms.

Thousands of peoplecivilians, separatists and soldiershave been killed and more than 500,000 displaced.

The economy is also in ruins, with businesses going bankrupt and workers not being paid.

Child soldiers

Worst of all, children have been orphaned and some of them have gone into the bush to join one of the many armed groups that have emerged to fight for what they call the independent state of Ambazonia.

What was once unthinkable has become a reality: Kamerun – like some other African statesnow has child soldiers.

They blame government troops for the deaths of their parents and have vowed to take revenge.

The separatists have targeted schools, more than anything else, because they are the softest of targets, and because they want to thwart the government’s efforts to make childrenthe next generation of English-speaking Camerooniansfall under greater French influence.
